Read the story. So many Muslims from traditionally-Muslim countries seem to be cruel by nature. Not all, of course, but many more by proportion as compared to European Christians (and other Europeans).

Good point.

Refers in part to a book, an anti-white diatribe called White Women.

Incidentally, I took the trouble to look up the book in question. It was published a couple of months ago, and presently ranks at about 19,000 in the Amazon bestsellers list. Using the Amazon Book Sales Calculator, that implies sales of only about 200 books worldwide per month. Not very many, but I bet that the “wokes” and the “you-know-whos” (((you know whos))) are getting it into the libraries of schools, colleges, and universities, mainly in the USA. More drip-drip anti-white poison.

The age differences are disturbing, though.

Brainwashed by the msm? Or (and/or) can they not see what might be the ultimate consequence?

Most horse racing in England does not involve cruelty these days. There have been many advances in the care and welfare of horses over the years, though minor improvements are still necessary. Rather disturbing that so many seem to think that such a traditional part of British and especially English life should be banned.

Part-Jew nasty little blot, George Osborne, talking about how great is HS2, and how good things such as the motorway system have been. There is a contrary view.

I myself remember, when aged about 21 (1976-77), the sections of the M25 in Surrey still largely unbuilt; at that time, I lived near the top of Reigate Hill, very easy walking distance from what is now the roundabout/interchange at Junction 8 of the M25. The M25 running east from there was nearly finished, but the bit running west was still being constructed.

Indeed, as a child (early/mid 1960s), I recall an England almost entirely devoid of motorway. In many respects it was better that way, though I concede that that may be regarded as a “Little Englander” or even “Luddite”, point of view.

When the motorway system was put in place, driving long distances became much easier. However, a certain character was lost, and that loss continued and deepened in the 1990s and up to the present day, made worse by the cancerous growths of new housing projects (“boxes for people”, if you like). I suppose that anyone under 40 —or even 50— would struggle to understand, though.

[re. the “alleged” “grifter”/”fraud”, “Jack Monroe”].

It makes me laugh how so many of the ill-informed and ignorant on Twitter believe that an action in defamation can be launched easily and with almost-guaranteed success. Few understand even the basics of defamation, or of the economics of litigation.

Would the British people not have been much better off without corrupt Kurdish carpetbagger Nadhim Zahawi? Some tweeters live their lives without logic.

…and, actually, “carry on” doing what, exactly? Ripping people off, while cobbling together occasional recipes for appalling food?

Ukraine— stray thoughts

Let us take the probably-mistaken idea that “Ukraine is winning” to the max, to the reductio ad absurdum. Let us suppose that the forces of the Kiev regime expel Russian forces from all of pre-2014 Ukrainian territory, including Crimea. What then? Does Russia, or Putin, just accept that? Is that the end? I think not.

Ukrainian forces cannot cross the borders of Russia, even marginally, without provoking not only a response from the Russian Government but also from the Russian people, who would then be “triggered”, as people now say, to defend “Holy Russia”, their native land or “rodina“.

For the first time since the incursion/invasion of 2022, the Russian Government would then enjoy almost-unqualified public support in fighting the invading forces of the Kiev regime.

It is unlikely, though, that the Kiev-regime forces can in fact expel Russian forces from Ukrainian or former Ukrainian territory. Russia has a far greater population, a functioning economy, vast economic resources, and a nuclear backstop.

The logic seems to be that either Russia prevails in the present conflict, or that it is pushed out, only to then return with far greater numbers and might within a year or two.

In the end, Russia will annex Ukraine east of the Dnieper, whatever happens in the meantime. Unless a major East-West hot war starts first.

The Harry Formerly Known as Prince

Caught a few minutes of the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme. Some talk about “Harry” and Meghan Mulatta etc. The programme played a short part of an interview with the self-exiled former “royal”. His self-delusion is patent, saying that “the whole world” is waiting to hear from “the Palace” in reply to his accusations.

The idiot obviously thinks that the tawdry soap opera involving him and Meghan Mulatta is centre-stage in the world, whereas in reality it is just a side issue, a kind of entertainment for the masses in the UK and USA etc.

I really think that he has burned his boats now. He has become more or less a ventriliquist’s dummy; when he speaks, 90% of what is said is what the Mulatta wants to have said. Pathetic over-privileged idiot.

Hardly anything is working properly in the UK. That has in fact been the case for years, but now more people are noticing. The System is determined to destroy everything worthwhile, so that a kind of semi-dictatorship (ruling over a mixed-race population) can be instituted. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.

“They” must be worming their way back in. (((they))).

“Jack Monroe”

She worked in the NHS for about a year or so as a junior doctor, but now just makes money online by selling stuff and getting donations, tapping into the public concern about the NHS really not working properly. A crazed facemask fanatic too (she made money selling facemasks, and forced her young son to wear one even when walking in the park). Rather unpleasant.

As I have often said previously, never trust a medical doctor who is primarily a socio-political activist.

Keywords? “Swill“, “dog’s dinner“, “inedible”, “horrible-looking“; “unhealthy” etc. My keywords, more direct than those actually used in the above-mentioned review.

I rarely mention my family or living relatives on the blog, but I shall make an exception, pro bono publico.

Both my younger brothers, one in the London area, one in Sydney, Australia, had themselves “vaccinated”, and I think one at least may have been “boosted” at least once if not twice. Neither had previously had heart problems. Both have now had to have heart bypass operations, one being a triple bypass. Both were suddenly afflicted, both had to be taken into hospital urgently (last year).

Both are now OK, but, in my opinion, the events cannot be mere co-incidence, i.e. that they both developed serious heart probems after having been “vaccinated”.

Incidentally, their ways of life and diet are very divergent, one (in the UK) eating a healthy diet, the other an unregenerate old-time Australian one consisting largely of steak and booze, with scarcely a vegetable in sight.

As for me, I refused the “vaccine” several times in 2020-2021, thank God, and have no heart problems; neither (as far as I know) have I had “Covid”, though there was a period of a few weeks last year when I had a terrible flu-type ailment, and difficulty breathing at times. Maybe that was it. I rarely get anything like that, and when I do, it usually goes within a day or two. My only medication, BTW, was the odd Lemsip, with top-grade Manuka honey.

I was just looking at the latest “Jack Monroe” supporters on Twitter:

Much the same as previously: retired or near-retired minor academics, a soft-headed C. of E. vicar, marketing bods, IT bods (mostly retired), “retired HR marketing lady“, “artist“, “retired maths teacher“, “interdisciplinary researcher…lecturer, University of Kent“, “Email Marketing and Social Media Marketing Strategist“, “retired lab technician“, “widower and drum nut“, “Anti-racism. Anti-fascism. Pro LBGTQi. Pro-Choice. He/His. #BLM Fuck TERFs.“, “Francophile“, “Founder + CEO :@CareersWeek |@NCWUganda |@NCWGhana |@NCW_Foundation |@Green__Careers“, “makes films/writes things/proudly dyspraxic“, “Full prof./cis white woman“, “craft, nature, 90s music, musicals, books, chocolate, coffee, mushrooms, proud child/dog mum, mediocre business analyst“, “writer who loves to cook and travel“, “CEO Western Biological Labs in Monterey, but a citizen of the world with a base in UK [probable parody account]”, “Arts reviews, views, and opinions“, “golfer and retired maths teacher“, “Retired Chartered Engineer. ‘Citizen of nowhere’. Probably woke“, “retired company director” [etc].

In other words, mostly people over 50, with many over 60; quite a few rather loony-sounding types as well, but what leaps out is, as far as one can see, a complete absence of anyone young (under 30), an almost-complete absence of anyone under 40, a complete absence of anyone likely to be “poor” or “working class”, and a complete absence, it seems, of anyone from any recognizable ethnic minority.

The conclusion —as when blogged before re. this— is that the “Jack Monroe” supporters are basically “middle-class” virtue-signallers, most of whom probably read the Guardian and/or Observer, most of whom at least think of themselves as well-meaning, and socially conscious, most of whom seriously think that “Labour”-label would be very different from “Conservative”-label.

If I had to guess, I should imagine that most if not all the pro “Jack Monroe” crowd support the UK rejoining the EU, support the Kiev regime of the Jew Zelensky, support the facemask-wearing nonsense, support the toxic “vaccines”, support the “refugees welcome” migration-invasion (and of course they cannot see —or will not see— how mass immigration impacts pay, benefits, NHS, social services, transport, schools, and housing); they no doubt support the “LGBTQXYZ” and “trans” stuff too.

More tweets

I think that those claiming that they were cheated by “Jack Monroe” should take legal action in the Small Claims Track of the County Court. Limited (or no) liability for costs if not successful, but every chance of success (on the facts as put out on Twitter anyway). Perhaps with damages expressly limited to £1,000. No need to pay out for solicitors and/or Counsel.

It would also ensure much Press coverage, quite likely not very favourable to the so-called “Bootstrap Cook”…

[me, 30+ years ago, in 1992]

Caveat: now that I am no longer a barrister (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/), and it having been some 15 years since I was last in court, any “advice” I give (meaning mere opinions and/or observations) must come with a “non-governmental health warning”. Naturally I do not keep up with law and procedure as would a barrister still practising.

Only when the MPs who are enabling the migration-invasion face consequences themselves will anything even start to be done to stop and reverse the invasion.

They are not “Romanians“, though, but backward “Roma” Gypsies; something completely different. Non-Europeans, albeit with Romanian or other passports.

On this day a year ago

Temps perdu

Some years ago, I noted on the blog that my old head of chambers, one M.B., a pretty good civil barrister, had been appointed to the office of Circuit Judge. Now I see that no fewer than three other fellow-members of the same chambers (now and for some time joined with another set under a new name) have also received judicial preferment.

The first, one “R.P.”, was, as I recall him from over 15 years ago, a small and rather dapper man, maybe about 40 at that time, unfailingly polite, who had been a magistrates’ court clerk for many years, and had written a very well-received book on sentencing, as well as (and I only saw that today) several other books on law and procedure. Someone both erudite and modest, a good combination.

I see just now (thanks to the Internet) that R.P. is 56-57.

R.P., a man so modest and self-effacing that I know nothing about him on the personal level, despite having been in the same chambers as him for at least a couple of years (I was there 2002-2008, he for not so long), was (if I recall aright) nominally a “pupil” at first, having been previously a solicitor (again, if I recall correctly); as said, he had spent years as a magistrates’ clerk.

R. P. is therefore now “His Honour Judge R.P.” and has been, as they say, “deployed” to the North East as a Circuit Judge. In the old days, pre-1970s, people would practice almost entirely on one circuit, such as Western Circuit, Midland and Oxford etc, and if granted judicial preferment, would be appointed, almost always, on that Circuit. Now, however, they can be sent anywhere within England and Wales.

The other two appointments seen by me were those affecting two people who were, like R.P., both pupils of M.B. twenty-odd years ago. When I knew them, they were both in their early twenties, so must be about 45 now. Let us call them, in the manner of M.R. James, “JB” and “AW”.

J.B, a pleasant-enough fellow, and rather likeable, albeit no intellectual (if I recall aright), and who came from an affluent family (his father is or was a businessman involved in trade with China), has been appointed both as an employment judge (i.e. at the Employment Tribunal) and also as a Deputy District Judge (which is same level, really, as a full District Judge, but only sitting for 15-50 days per year).

As for A.W., I recall him as a serious and bearded young man, bordering however on the humourless (admittedly, I only spoke with him a few times); intelligent, and who, with his wife (whom I never met), actually played music live at least once on either BBC Radio 3 or BBC Radio 4 at that time, i.e. about 16-17 years ago.

A.W. is apparently appointed District Judge as of early January 2023, and has been deployed to Worthing in West Sussex.

Such appointments as District Judge etc may seem minor (there are c.400 full District Judges in England and Wales) but actually such jobs are not badly-paid— about £114,000 p.a. at time of writing (Circuit Judges get more, about £145,000).

I can see why barristers often apply for such jobs. They carry none of the uncertainty which can be part and parcel of being a barrister, such as where the next brief will come from; also (for barristers of a certain age) there is the attraction of a generous pension scheme, something unknown to the Bar (unless you pay out for a private one). Also, the judge (at any level) does not have the need to travel much, if at all, whereas a barrister in a provincial set can travel extensively.

When I myself was in London as a practising barrister (early/mid 1990s), almost all my cases were within London itself (often at the High Court, a shortish No. 6 bus, or a taxi, ride from my then home in Little Venice); but when I was based in Exeter in 2002-2008 (and living 50 miles west of there, on the Cornwall-Devon border), I sometimes had to travel as far north as Manchester, and as far east as London, Cambridge, Brighton etc. 600-mile roundtrips. I even made the odd overseas journey, though admittedly that also happened when I lived in London.

Always interesting to see what is happening over time to those whom I knew in the past.

Finally, I should add that I have no idea whether those I used to know, and who have been appointed to the judiciary, are freemasons. Possibly. Not impossible, anyway, thinking back to when I knew them, and thinking about what I do know of them.

…and in Oxford Street, London, Jews danced in a circle, guarded by police and “CST” “minders”. An expression of Jew-Zionist supremacism.

Why did no-one shoot him, or just run over the bastard in a car? We always hear so-called “Christians” droning about “turning the other cheek” but what about “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” [Matthew 7-6]?

Covid “panicdemic”

Well, there it is. Proof that hugely loss-making Twitter was both (as I speculated years ago on the blog) acting as an intelligence-collecting system for NWO/ZOG, and also proof that —time and again— the overall public debate or discussion in the “online forum” or “online public space” is —and in the case of Twitter, especially, was— being twisted by Twitter staff (etc); also offline (by the usual msm suspects). The “online public space“, as I termed it on the blog, as well as in my 2017 talk offline, at the now-defunct London Forum— with others later imitating my language and reasoning.

What at first surprised me slightly, years ago, was that I could see that the usual crowd of “human rights” lawyers, bien-pensants, “liberal” msm types, anti-censorship loudmouths, pseudo-socialists etc (many, but by no means all, Jews) were in fact perfectly OK with a secretive transnational finance-capital offshoot such as Twitter censoring dissenting views, and/or “deplatforming” dissidents and/or persons labelled “neo-Nazi” etc.

The mask of Evil has slipped a little as regards Twitter, but remains firmly in place in respect of other online and offline platforms.

This is not just about the Covid “panicdemic”. It applies also to other matters, especially the constant Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda being blasted out across the TV, radio, newspapers etc.

I happened to see a copy of Vogue magazine the other day, not my usual reading material. Flicking through it for a few seconds, I noticed that almost every photo and report was basically about blacks, and pushing blacks forward, to an almost unbelievable extent. No one is going to tell me that that is simply about making money for the publishers. There is something more behind it all. See also: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

Returning to “Covid”, I see that the Chinese Government has now turned its massive state repression machinery into reverse, and almost overnight dismantled the “Covid” police state measures. According to Sky News in the UK, that has meant an increase in “cases” (whether labelled “influenza” or “Covid”-this-or-that. Of course.

The stupid “lockdowns” isolate people. When they have to be released (because to shut down society and economy indefinitely is unsustainable, impossible) naturally their immune systems have been weakened. “Lockdowns” were always the wrong policy, not only from the economic point of view (look at the UK, for example) but from the strict health point of view as well.

While on the subject of Twitter, I see that it continues to omit the (only-recently-dropped) “Latest” tweets column on any given subject or subject-name searched for. This really weakens the usefulness of Twitter.

I have blogged in the past week about the poor standard on Christmas University Challenge, and again below.

That sign was still the ethos at Blackwell’s in the 1970s, when I asked for a copy of the Malleus Maleficarum, sat at a table reading it for a long time, then left without buying it, and still got a cheery goodbye from the staff.

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

Christmas University Challenge

Again, two dispiriting performances from the alumni teams (Cardiff v. Bristol), who displayed the ignorance which has been the hallmark of the series both last year and this year, and which by now I actually expect.

One who at least attempted to answer, though usually wrongly, was Dominic Waghorn of the Bristol alumni team, of whom I see that Wikipedia says this:

Dominic David Waghorn (born 1968, Lambeth),[1] is a British journalist who is the Diplomatic Editor of Sky News and presenter of the channel’s weekly international affairs analysis programme World View. He was before that US Correspondent of Sky News, the 24-hour television news service operated by Sky Television, part of British Sky Broadcasting. He is based at Sky News’ Washington Bureau. He was formerly Sky News’ Asia Correspondent, based in Beijing and Middle East Correspondent, based in Jerusalem. He became Sky News’ US Correspondent in 2011.”

[Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_Waghorn]

That reads well, on paper, but that supposed “expert” not only failed to identify Volgograd as the “new” (since 1961) name for the city of Stalingrad, even after prompting from Jeremy Paxman, but then compounded his error by venturing “Voronezh?“, a city about 360 miles away, and in a different part of Russia.

There were several other errors by Waghorn and worse ones by others (those who actually tried to answer any questions at all).

The problem I have with these well-known and/or “celebrity” contestants is not only that their general-knowledge levels are, indeed, generally abysmal, but also a. that they are all people paid plenty of money by society as a whole, partly by reason of their supposedly “elite” education, and b. that those working in msm current affairs are delivering misinformation to the public on subjects such as Ukraine, European politics, and the “Covid” “panicdemic”.

Tweets seen about the show:

Good point (especially as I practically never get a popular music question right…).

Ha ha! That must be intended as good-humoured satire, surely? (from one of the subject’s colleagues on Sky News). Waghorn even failed to get right a fairly easy question about which seas were mentioned in Churchill’s famous post-WW2 speech at Fulton, Missouri, which brought the term “iron curtain” into popular speech (though Churchill had lifted the term from Schwerin von Krosigk, unless it was a simple co-incidence).

The seas in the question were Baltic and Adriatic, not (as Waghorn said) the Adriatic Sea and Black Sea. The other team also got that one wrong, incidentally, citing Baltic and Atlantic.

To be fair on him, Waghorn did get a few other questions right.

I had certainly heard of “Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”, but never of “LadBaby”. Just looked him up on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LadBaby. Seems to be a typical UK-in-2022 waste of space, making a living by posting rubbish online.

As for “Jack Monroe”, I have blogged about her: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

Exactly my opinion. I may be wrong, but it seemed to me some time ago that many of those Twitter accounts saying “let’s all send money to ‘Jack Monroe’” were actually…Jack Monroe herself priming the pump.

Of course, if it were to transpire that “Jack Monroe” has and/or had other Twitter accounts which encouraged people to donate money or sign up to Patreon etc, then that might well be taken to be evidence tending to prove that “Jack Monroe” had fraudulent intent from, if not the start of her activities, then anyway for some years.

Exactly like the “Bootstrap Cook” stuff: carbohydrate-heavy food, with few vitamins or minerals. This type of food, if not supplemented, leads to public health problems down the line.

However justified the NHS strikes may be from the employees’ point of view, the fact is that to leave people helpless and suffering is just very wrong, to say the least. Public sympathy for hospital staff will quickly evaporate, especially after 2+ years of unnecessary “panicdemic” measures, facemask nonsense, NHS non-service etc.

The population of the Earth should be reduced to about a tenth of its present aggregate number, but there is no need to reduce the white Northern European population. On the contrary.

Diary Blog, 2 December 2022, with comments re. the City of Chester by-election result

Morning music

On this day last year

City of Chester by-election

As expected, Labour won the by-election; as I blogged a while ago, the interest lies mainly in the percentages: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/11/23/diary-blog-23-november-2022-including-a-brief-overview-of-the-upcoming-city-of-chester-by-election/.

The result: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Chester_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

The Labour candidate, a woman who seems to have been a housewife/homemaker previously, as well as (from 2011) a councillor and (from 2015) leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, scored 61.2%, Labour’s best-ever result in the constituency. The fact that she was brought up in, and has lived in, the area since the age of 4 cannot have hurt her campaign.

Conversely, the Conservative candidate did very badly, scoring 22.4%; the previous worst Con result was in 2001 (33.1%).

The LibDem, on 8.4%, was the only other candidate to retain his deposit. Their best result in a decade, but underwhelming when compared to where the LibDems were prior to the 2010-2015 “Con Coalition”.

Of the others, the only ones worth noting are the Greens (2.8%) and the new Farage vehicle, Reform UK (2.7%). The other four candidates scored 1% or below.

Thoughts? A very good result for Labour, despite it having been in a by-election. Labour’s previous best was 56.8% in 2017, which had been ahead of all other results, even that of 1997.

The voters are getting very tired of the Conservative Party, and even if they may not consider that Labour will do much if at all better on a number of issues, that alone cannot save Sunak and the Con Party.

Not much else to be said, except that Farage is proven once again a busted flush; his Reform UK party is not likely to get anywhere. Britain needs a real social-national party.

Finally, what did strike me was the low turnout— 41.2%, by far the lowest ever, though of course this was only a by-election. The previous-lowest turnout was in the General Election of 2001 (63.8%).

The low turnout might well indicate apathy, or apathy vis a vis the present political and voting system; it may also indicate anger and frustration, and a view that the present system cannot solve Britain’s problems.

Whatever the truth of that, the fact remains that 58.8% of eligible voters did not vote. How many were disaffected former Con voters unwilling to vote Labour or even LibDem? We do not know, but the fact is that 6,335 people voted Con at this by-election, compared with 20,918 in 2019 (when the turnout was 71.7%).

Britain has a basically binary political system. That only about 10% of eligible voters here cast a vote for the governing party must ring alarm bells at CCHQ.

[Note: incidentally, since writing the above, a few hours ago, I see that journalists and others are tweeting that the result was “the worst result for the Conservatives since 1832“. Not right.

The Conservative Party did not really exist back then, and the party referred to were the Whigs, some of whom morphed into what —much later— became the Liberal Unionist Party and then part of the Conservative and Unionist Party. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whigs_(British_political_party).

The 1832 General Election now being referred to by journalists was one where there were three candidates in City of Chester, but two of those candidates were both Whigs —but with differing views— and the losing one, who came third, was the one now being called a “Conservative”.

In any case, that was a different world].

World Cup

I take no interest in the World Cup and similar circuses for the deluded masses, but have just now noticed that the “German” team is composed only half of Europeans (i.e. white players) let alone “Germans” (even if they may have a few bits of paper describing them as “German”).

I do not really want the photo on the blog, but I suppose that I have to make the point:

I suppose that the “England” team is now similar. What a farce.

A couple of kicks each would underline the message.

I notice that that incident was not in the UK, but am not sure where it happened; I think in France.

I never cease to be amazed at the ignorant comments made about the 1970s in the UK. The “Winter of Discontent” lasted for a couple of months in 1978-79, only really badly affected a few geographic areas, and even fewer urban areas had “bodies stacked up” etc, and not for long.

You also see people insistent that there were long periods of the 1970s with electrical blackouts etc. In fact, most areas did not have blackouts at all, even in the “three day week” period of late 1973.

The whole thing has been blown up into this fable in which a whole decade consisted of blackouts, nothing working, rubbish and corpses unburied or unburned, and a “three day week” which (according to the fable) lasted for years, rather than the few weeks it actually lasted.

What is actually alarming about some of those assertions is that they are made even by some people who were actually there at the time (as I was, incidentally: aged 17 in late 1973, and 22 in the winter of 1978-79). The fallibility of human memory is astounding at times; I notice it because I have always had an exceptional memory.

Incidentally, reading about Cecil Parkinson in that blog post from a year ago, I looked up on Google Earth the street and house where he was born (and probably brought up): 4 Edward Street, Carnforth, Lancashire. I have rarely seen such a poor-looking street in the UK. To go from there to the Cabinet, as a Conservative MP at that, took some talent, whatever one may think of him otherwise. He was truly at least a spruce, if not an oak, of his own generation.

Margaret Thatcher was told of Parkinson’s sex scandal (his former secretary pregnant by him) by Parkinson himself. Despite that, she wanted him to become Foreign Secretary but he demurred and accepted a lesser post, though still in the Cabinet (but he felt impelled to resign when the scandal became public knowledge): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Parkinson.

It is not impossible to imagine that, had he accepted the FCO post, then not resigned in 1983, Parkinson might well have become Prime Minister eventually.

Times have certainly changed, when one looks at the tangled mess of sexual scandal, incompetence, and corruption around “Boris”-idiot’s tenure in office.

Parkinson was a relatively competent minister, whose achievements included, when Secretary of State for Transport from 1989, the initiation of the Crossrail project.

Apart from that, it strikes me how necessary it is for a politician, in the words of the Spice Girls, to “really really want” to become Prime Minister, if ambitious. A vague wish or preference is not enough.

David Davis had at least two chances to seize the Conservative Party leadership in the past decade, but was just not hungry enough in the end.

Likewise, after Chamberlain resigned in 1940 (after Dunkirk), Lord Halifax was the obvious successor, but at the meeting chaired by Chamberlain and attended by Churchill (and Brendan Bracken), Chamberlain spoke against Churchill as PM but Halifax then expressed what he claimed was his own unfitness to become PM (he was Foreign Secretary at the time).

Churchill at first kept silent (a tactic previously advised by Bracken) and then more or less crowned himself.

What a difference that made!

Had Halifax become Prime Minister, an armistice with the German Reich would have been agreed by Autumn 1940 if not before. Britain would therefore have become neutral, in effect, when Germany attacked the Soviet Union the following year. There would have been no London Blitz, no bombing of England, no later and terrible carpet bombing of Germany, no Atlantic War at sea, no Normandy landings, no years of rationing in the UK. Very likely, Germany would have destroyed the Soviet regime and toppled Stalin in or after 1941.

These things matter. Even when (as in the UK today) there is really one System “political class” split into two main and rather similar parties, it still matters which party is in power, and it also matters who exactly is Prime Minister.

More cultural vandalism

The director of the Wellcome Collection, Melanie Keen, was appointed in 2019. A year later she pledged to be courageous in dealing with the most contentious items on display there.

The announcement was welcomed by some Twitter followers but attacked by several others. “An act of cultural vandalism to close without even having any idea of what will take its place,” wrote one.

“Is there no one who can get rid of these cultural vandals instead or does the rot go all the way to the top? Is this the prelude to whole museums closing because their collections aren’t woke enough?” another asked.

[reported in the Guardian]

Yes, let’s indeed “get rid” of those vandals.

Incidentally, this is the “Melanie Keen” who has closed down the museum:

Hard to know whether this is the start of another great upheaval in China or whether the protests will just be repressed, as they were in 1989.

In any event, seems that at least the more aware Chinese are against more “panicdemic” “lockdown” nonsense.

I myself opposed the UK equivalent in 2021-2022, openly opposing the facemask nonsense (rarely wearing a facemask, and doing so as carelessly as possible when forced to), not getting “vaccinated”, not taking “social distancing” at all seriously, and mocking the whole nonsense as much as possible, both in person and online. As for the ludicrous “Rule of Six”, invented by “Boris”-idiot, that never applied to me; by reason of my generally anti-social preferences, I was never in a situation with more than six people present during 2020-2022.

Not all better, but many things were better. Above all, Britain was British.

Hard to know whether, or to what extent, this whole problem has been created by sheer incompetence, or whether it is deliberate, conditioning the masses to accept rationing. The plan may be to blame Putin; alternatively, to make the sort of claims acceptable to Greta Nut and the affluent eco-terrorists, i.e. that British people going without electrical power (etc) is somehow “saving the planet” (or whatever).

A small matter, yes, but a slip like that would not have happened 30 or even 20 years ago (though I concede that Jack de Manio https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_de_Manio did nearly get the sack from the BBC Home Service (forerunner of Radio 4) in 1956 for mispronouncing the region of the River Niger [pron. “nee-zheer”] as “nigger“).

Meanwhile, the ultra-wealthy few are buying up land, eg in the UK. Particularly land in the prime agricultural counties. James Dyson is only one example. He has bought vast tracts of Lincolnshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and other counties. Mostly in one loosely-connected group.

Just as the WEF says “you will own nothing, and be happy“, which is strange, or not so strange, when you see that the richest are multiplying their riches. Bezos, Musk, many others. That is why it is comforting when one realizes that those billionaires, some of whom own hundreds of billions of UK pounds or US dollars, are still subject to the Primal Karma of mankind that Buddha noted— old age, sickness, and death. Death is the Great Equalizer, and I found it oddly comforting when I read that the rather unpleasant Steve Jobs had snuffed it.

The conspiracy behind those billionaires (and of which they may well be unaware, in fact) does want the peoples of the Earth to be “happy“, in a sense. Not right now, before the worldwide government has been totally clamped down, but later. The reason is simple: “happy” (complacent, brainwashed) people do not revolt, do not even question. They will be given a hi-tech version of the “bread and circuses” that kept the plebs of Rome quiescent most of the time. Circuses? I mean such as I’m A Celebrity, Love Island, “reality” (unreality) shows of all sorts, increasingly vulgar, increasingly divorced from any actual reality. That, and also globalized televised sports spectaculars, such as the World Cup.

I await the next brave warrior who will take action.

I have been loving the scalded reaction to Musk’s new Twitter regime; not least, the reaction on Twitter itself. From the Jew-Zionists in particular. They call themselves, between themselves, “J-Twitter”. Now they fear that, not only will they be unable to repress the free speech of others but also that they themselves may be “cancelled”.

The above tweet is from a lady whose husband developed an awful and painful condition, as a result of which he and she both lost their jobs and were plunged into poverty. She paid out monies to “Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”, then (apparently because the items to be provided in return were never supplied) asked for a refund, but was fobbed off. A circumstance common to many who have sent monies to “Jack Monroe”, it seems (reading tweets about it all).

Britain 2022— worthless “university” degrees

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11388619/Fifth-bar-staff-went-university-fuelling-fears-modern-style-degrees-worthless-study-shows.html

One in five bar staff are now graduates and experts say it is because university leavers find it increasingly hard to find professional work.

Nineteen per cent of bar workers went to university, compared with 3 per cent 30 years ago, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) found.

The research, based on data from 6,000 workers, also found that 17 per cent of waiters are graduates, compared with 2 per cent three decades ago.

The same is true of 14 per cent of retail staff, 15 per cent of care workers and 24 per cent of security guards.

It comes amid growing fears that many youngsters are taking ‘Mickey Mouse’ degrees, which do not properly prepare them for professional work. Around half of young people now study for a degree.

[Daily Mail]

Not a new problem but one which has undoubtedly become worse over the years. I had a friend in the mid-1980s who told me that all of his colleagues in the Covent Garden branch of Oddbins (a wine —and other booze— chain, now pretty much washed-up) were graduates, as was he himself (in his case, from a leading dance institute).

My solution to both the general dumbing-down (which I noticed when in practice at the Bar, talking to or listening to younger barristers), and to the “Mickey Mouse degree” problem, would be as follows:

Firstly, the State must assess students based on a number of criteria. Those assessed as being in the top 10% to get full grants, both tuition and living; the next 20% to get grants, but at a lower level; the rest to get free tuition but no other help.

Secondly, more (free and/or indeed paid) vocational training for a number of jobs; successful completion to be regarded as degree-equivalent. Examples: medical careers, police, Army, many business-related fields. This was the case until quite recently even in what are now regarded as “degree-only” professions. For example, up to the late 1970s, it was possible to be Called to the Bar without a degree (by doing a 2-year, rather than 1-year, Bar Finals course). The same was true of the solicitors’ profession.

It would be short-sighted for the State only to fund the hard sciences, or quite strictly vocational degrees such as law or medicine, but there have to be priorities set, and if (as now) there is a near-emergency in relation to shortages of nurses and doctors, then that is one area that must surely be prioritized.

The whole educational field needs a reboot. Some parts of it, indeed, just need “the boot”.

I used to know parts of the Netherlands fairly well, about 40 or so years ago. My Dutch friends have, over the years, seen their city (Amsterdam) and country trashed, and their way of life ruined both culturally and economically: migration invasion, toleration of marijuana (etc), and a pseudo-liberal multikulti State and society which pretends to be terribly compassionate etc, but has evil at its heart. The medical and health system is but one example.

Yes, there are still foreigners who move to Amsterdam, think it wonderful etc, just as there is always a new generation of naive provincials who come to London, and think it great (for a while).

Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government

For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).

Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.

Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.

Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.

Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.

In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.

The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.

I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.

Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.

I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.

Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.

Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.

Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.

As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.

In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.

Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.

It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.

Reminds me of times past, about 30 years ago.

When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.

When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.

The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.

My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.

My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…

I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.

A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.

A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.

Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.

I don’t care!“(?).

I am reminded of the middle-aged man before the Brexit Referendum who was asked by a reporter whether he would change his Leave stance if he were convinced that Brexit would damage the economy. His answer? “I don’t really care…it’s only me and the dog“…

As for Simon Hart, he is an expenses-blodger who employs his wife on expenses, and takes a very large number of free First Class rail journeys: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Hart.

Good to see some thick dorks getting the sack though: barrow-boy barrister Brandon Lewis, thick Welsh barrister Robert Buckland, Wendy Morton (how did she ever become an MP?), Chloe Smith (ditto), absurd Kit Malthouse, Rees-Mogg.

Ben Wallace to stay at Defence. I suppose that means that vastly more sums of money (and arms) will be wasted on Zelensky’s Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev, while British people starve in their unheated homes (if indeed they have a home).

The Jew Shapps removed as Home Secretary (that must have been another record (5-6 days?), but still in Cabinet as Business Secretary. I thought that Sunak wanted to project an image of probity?

I presume (no news yet) that horrible creature Therese Coffey will also get sacked.

Tweeter “MannieQuinn1” has a point…

My assessment (with updates) from 2019 again: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

[caricature of Therese Coffey]

I think he is being serious and not sarcastic, incredibly.

He did not add “Raab, Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Secretary—half-Jew“, of course. The msm do not want the British people to wake up to that (((aspect))).

Even so, what a disgrace— Jews, Indians, Kurds, blacks. Where are the English?

A few tokens here and there, such as Jeremy Hunt (even he has a Chinese wife).

Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. Again.

Ah, so there it is but, in an odd move, Sunak has moved her within Cabinet to Secretary of State for the Environment.

That Therese Coffey is even an MP speaks volumes about how broken our political system now is.

As for the Indian money-juggler, if he is not careful, he may end his time as Prime Minister by being carried out of town on a rail, tarred and feathered.

Only the first step. Later, Little Matt Hancock, the Communist bitch on “SAGE”, “Professor Lockdown” (Ferguson) and many many others have to be —eventually— put on trial and/or otherwise punished.

If only there were a real social-national party in the UK…

Late tweets seen

Quite. You still see people (who seem to think themselves terribly clever) tweeting “freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences“, whereas, as “@RealBlackIrish” points out there, that is exactly what it means. The “freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences” formula would mean, in effect, that Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China and present-day North Korea all had free speech.

There was (maybe still is) a mediocre law lecturer from East Anglia, one Paul Bernal (descended from the well-known part-Jew 20thC scientist, J.D. Bernal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._D._Bernal), who used to regularly and unthinkingly tweet that formula.

So much for the “alt-right” “conservative nationalists”. To hell with them. They sell the future of England, of Europe, of the world down the river.
