The same is true of the vaccines. Whatever else may be said against or about them, there is no doubt that the mass vaccination hysteria is a form of State and societal conditioning.
Once a citizen is wearing a facemask when so ordered by System politicians expressing a mere wish (and see how many citizens are still doing it even now that the “law” no longer generally “requires” that), and once a citizen is not only having injections of what is basically an unknown substance (and so showing utter trust in the State) and as many “boosters” as ordered, and without any legal right of remedy should damage be suffered, then that citizen is a malleable robot, basically. Job done…
As I have blogged before, anyone you now see wearing a facemask in a supermarket, or shop, let alone a car park, or while cycling, or while walking in the open air, can probably be written off as a compliant serf, and probably a complete idiot as well.

Screw the “app”, screw mobile telephones, screw this whole psyop, and screw the System.
Exactly. Superficially, an age of “rights” but fewer and fewer real rights…
Don’t let anyone tell you that the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan has been “misconstrued”. Just look around you, and at what is happening.
The scale is new but not the substance. Sometime around 1992, I was visiting an old friend, an elderly lady in Little Venice, London. We went for a walk and saw a local landmark, the Clarendon Hotel (which, incidentally, used to have an amusing notice above the entrance to its adjoining spa, “The Body Feminine— entrance at rear“!). So we decided to have a coffee there.
That hotel had been once a decent place (I think 4-star). Cricket teams playing Test cricket at the quite nearby Lords’ Cricket Ground stayed there.
Imagine our confusion when, on entering that hotel, and confronting the receptionist, he seemed confused at our request for coffee and walnut cake.
It was only when we were seated in a small room near the Reception, and overlooking the road outside, that we realized that the hotel was being used as a place to warehouse immigrant asylum-seekers! The coffee and cake was nice, though. The receptionist told us that the owners were being paid well to turn their hotel into a hostel, filled with otherwise unwanted “guests”.
So “nihil novum“…but the scale, that is new.
Are NHS hospitals busy?
We hear that (supposedly due to “the virus”) the NHS is terribly busy. I doubt that. I saw a statistic that only about 1% of hospitalizations recently were because of “Covid-19”.
In the end, I cannot say. It is a question of who and what you (choose to?) believe. All I can say is that I made a visit (not as patient) to my more or less local hospital recently (not a huge general hospital) and, as on other visits in the past 18 months, the place seemed almost deserted.
One interesting thing, though. While facemasks are still mandatory, I noticed that none of the staff were zealously demanding that the mask be pulled up over the nose any more. Reality is perhaps slowly breaking through the bs.
Well, after all, it is not as if the untermensch made a speech mentioning Jews (as did Jez Turner of London Forum), or posted comments or cartoons or songs about Jews, or about “holocaust” fakery (as did Alison Chabloz)! Had he done that, he would have been sent to prison, no doubt…
Amusing clip from Gilad Atzmon, though nearly four years old now. As for Rachel Eden, who tried so hard to get into the good books of the Zionists, she never did manage to get elected as MP, though she was selected as candidate for Reading West in 2019; she did worse than had Labour’s 2017 candidate, despite the fact that the Conservative (Alok Sharma) got almost the exact same percentage of the vote in both 2017 and 2018: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reading_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.
Part of the soundtrack of my life c.1972. I rather like TV themes. Another early favourite, but from 1965/1966 (when I was 9) was that of Riviera Police:
A better recording:
I am very sorry to hear about the devastating fires in Turkey. I visited Turkey and Northern Cyprus a few times in the 1990s, and also in 2001 (when I drove to Turkey from the UK and spent 3 months living in Fethiye, on the Mediterranean coast). I hope that this terrible series of fires will be extinguished soon.
Exactly. Two people I know went down (if such be the bon mot) with “the virus”: my 20-something Australian niece (in London), who was told to drink water and take a few Paracetomol, and my then 99-y-o mother-in-law. The first recovered within a couple of weeks, the second never had any symptoms at all (routine testing in hospital discovered her supposed infection).
Reply to Martin Bright, of “Index on Censorship”…now headed by Ruth Smeeth, the half-Jew/Zionist pro-Israel propagandist, former Labour MP, and former “strictly protected” confidential contact of the US Embassy…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Smeeth.
As I have blogged before, there is a large bloc of people in the UK who basically want to be controlled, told what to do, what to wear, what to think. Many are “Remainers”, many are (self-proclaimed) “antifascists”, and those on Twitter are often the (usually) idiotic who say that they are “FBPE” etc.
Not sure that I agree with Hitchens here. The few Trotskyists and similar “Leftists” I knew at and immediately after school were all pedestrian in mentality. Some claimed to be both Communist and anarchist! Trotskyism —a dummy intellectuality for the mediocre. Surprisingly (?), many Trotskyists have always been Jew or part-Jew (as, latter, is Hitchens).
I am also not in agreement with Hitchens when he refers to “Left wing” sympathies having been less popular in the (?) 1970s or late 1960s. I myself never use the terms “Left” and “Right” as meaningful, but certainly socialism of the old sort is just passe now, nicht wahr?
…or the non-Jewish (i.e. the “formerly known as” English) “community”?…

1945 propaganda film
American propaganda film from 1945, echoing the kind of anti-German views propounded during WW1 by writers such as John Buchan.
The above tweet typifies not only the view of John Rentoul, but also of the “New Labour” type of System commentator (and politician) generally. They think that politicians should —mainly— find out the public/msm view (via polling, focus groups etc) then do whatever that research suggests in order to be going with the popular tide; to be “electable”. I disagree. Leaders must lead, must make judgments based on their own views and assessments.
In 1928, Hitler and the NSDAP were very definitely not popular. They got only 2.8% of the popular vote. However, their integrity and vision impressed that same fickle public when, after the collapse of the world finance-capitalist economy in 1929, the vision of a German renaissance was held out. The NSDAP scored 33% in 1932 and, with Hitler as Chancellor, 44% in 1933.
Integrity. Congruence. Vision. Belief.
Well, this week I scored better than John Rentoul: 5/10 as against his 2/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8.
Dominic Cummings. What a very odd little man. How did someone like that attach himself to the very top of government in the UK? On the other hand, the same might be asked of Boris Johnson.
The sort of issue which happens when a superficially “liberal” regime (such as under the “Labour”-label governments from 1997-2010) passes kneejerk laws “for public protection”, but which scarcely protect the public while at the same time trashing the true rule of law and civil rights. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprisonment_for_public_protection.
There have been other such laws, such as the very bad law known as Communications Act 2003, s.127, under whch jokers, satirists, socio-political commentators, and those discussing the fakery around the “holocaust” narrative have been harassed and even imprisoned. Singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz for one.
Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 may now face repeal, following the recent report by the Law Commission, but there are a number of other “kneejerk” laws still standing, such as that by which almost all firearms were criminalized in 1997. As usual emotion led thought: only three “gun massacres” have occurred in British civil history, of which two were pre-1997 (Dunblane and Hungerford).
As a result of politicians wanting to get public approbation for “doing something”, privately held pistols were effectively banned, even if held by clubs. Has that stopped “gun crime”? No. There was a later “spree shooting” (in 2011) by someone using licensed shotguns and rifles, and there have been innumerable shootings by criminal gangs and individuals.
A couple of rounds costs about £1. Cheap at the price.
Priti Patel is not only as thick as two short planks, she is also a proven colluder with (agent of, more or less) the Israeli state and the Jewish lobby (which is 99% pro-migration-invasion); further, she is herself, effectively, a migrant-invader, who would have been serving behind the counter of a Kampala grocery store had her parents not come to the UK.
Where does one start? First of all (obviously), she is not of English or British origins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsana_Begum. Secondly, she has (of course) never had a real job, just political agitation and the usual “diversity” and “anti-racism” bs.
““In response to allegations that the ex-Mayor Lutfur Rahman was behind her political career, Begum told Eastlondonlines: “It is grossly insulting, as well as being rooted in racism and misogyny, to assume that I have no agency of my own and that I must be a ‘proxy’ or ‘stooge’ for a man I have not spoken to for six years.” [Wikipedia]
Strangely enough, her defence at her recent fraud trial was quite or almost the reverse: that she had been coerced into doing things by her estranged husband…
I presume that Apsana Begum is still living in her council flat. While, in principle, I have no objection to an MP living in a council flat, MPs do get paid about £85,000 a year (plus fairly generous expenses), so it does seem unfair on the poor and homeless of Tower Hamlets that she continues to occupy a cheap flat when she could afford a better private one (or to buy one on a mortgage), and bearing in mind that Limehouse and Tower Hamlets is a safe Labour seat (and near-rotten borough), so she can probably expect to be the MP for a long long time (unless a national revolution occurs, please God).
In England, it is unlawful for newspapers or others to enquire about the detailed composition or views of members of a jury during or even after a trial, so we do not know the racial and/or religious composition of that acquitting jury. Pity…
No doubt, after any denouement, the new System MP for Batley and Spen, Kim Leadbeater, will say a few appropriate weasel words…
I have heard a number of well-authenticated stories about well-known msm “celebrities” and MPs. The UK needs a very wideranging cultural, political, and social purge, on a scale rivalling those of the 20thC dictatorships. Evil and decadence must be rooted out. Ausrotten!…
Of all the countries in the world, the one I would have thought, years ago, would be least likely to turn into an NWO/ZOG “woke” dictatorship or tyranny would have been Australia, where I myself was at school for three years in the late 1960s (Middle Harbour PS and North Sydney Boys’ High).
Seems that times have changed, to put it tritely.
I was friendly, in 1996-97, with the Australian Ambassador to Kazakhstan, and his lady ambassadress. He updated me, when he and his wife were my guests at dinner (at my favourite small Georgian restaurant, where I and guests were usually the only diners) on the demographic changes since the 1960s, in particular the huge increase of both population and built area (especially in and around Sydney, where I had been as a child, living in Mosman and then Cremorne).
That population explosion and suburban expansion has continued.
In the late 1960s, Sydney had about 2.5M inhabitants; now it is 5.5M. Australia as a whole had about 12M people; now about 25M.
Once again, the Jewish Chronicle propaganda newspaper has to pay out for having defamed someone.
Occasionally, I see tweets by all sorts of mentally-disordered persons about me, including how I allegedly “defame” this or that Jew, System MP, msm drone, and/or other incompetent. Sometimes such tweets urge others to sue me. In a few instances, even the said Jews, mental cases and/or incompetents threaten to sue me. Those tweets make me smile, and sometimes laugh.
When I was a practising barrister (until 2008), I was not very active in the fields of libel and slander, but was asked to advise on such issues from time to time. The only matter that got as far as trial (in the High Court) was some years before I was Called to the Bar.
Not permitted, as a mere (belated) student, to speak, I advised during the two-week trial via notes passed to Flegon by his “assistant”, a dark and nervous Jewish girl. I myself had to be absent much of the time, sometimes because I had to attend tutorials at the Inns of Court School of Law at Gray’s Inn, not too far from the Royal Courts of Justice.
On one occasion, I sent a note to Flegon, who was addressing (and wasting the time of) the judge. I then left the court. Apparently, the judge then asked to see my note! Fortunately, the judge liked what he had read and told Flegon that he would be well-advised “to listen to what your adviser has written to you“!
Flegon was awarded (by a civil jury) £10,000 damages, plus costs. My first “case”, and my first “judicial commendation”!
Reverting to me as potential fantasy defamation defendant, I fear that, in the American phrase, potential claimants have a “sad row to hoe” and a steep hill to climb.
For one thing, while it is possible to launch a defamation action on a no-win-no-fee basis, that really only works where the case is both more than arguable, and also where the defendant has assets sufficient to satisfy at least the claimant’s costs, as well as any damages.
In my case, I admit that my assets are few. That impecuniosity is however a suit of armour for me. I am, in practical terms, “unsueable”.
In theory, a defamation action could be launched against me, with the aim of getting an injunction to restrain me from defaming XYZ person or persons. However, I would fight very very hard. I know the law pretty well (even now, though I admit that I am rather rusty), and would have no compunction about using every avenue open to me, including appeals.
Beyond that, most of that which idiots describe as my “libel” of others is not “libel” at all (eg because in law “mere insult”), or even where prima facie “libellous” is true and justifiable, or is published as justifiable opinion, or is published otherwise lawfully and justifiably.
I wish that tweeters would learn before they tweet, not only about law but in general.
Still, if anyone wants to lose a couple of hundred thousand trying to pursue me, that is their business…they would lose out even if (which I doubt) they were to meet with success in court.
So far, and after many years, no-one has even tried, and only one or two have even threatened (unconvincingly, at that).

God…I saw that rubbish a couple of times. Even worse, if possible, than Question Time.
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he found the Israelite tribes engaging in all forms of decadence. Those involved had to be exterminated for the good of the people as a whole.
Why do people like this rarely get official honours or awards?
Ha ha! I have to admit that, the more the pseudo-health police state tries to control me, and the more idiots I see wearing facemasks even when cycling or walking in the open air, the more I feel that way myself!
Laurence Fox is, in his own person and in his political flounderings, a socio-political morality tale. Virtually lynched for making a few unexceptional and unexceptionable points around free speech, he soon became a minor aspect of “controlled opposition” to the System.
Fox is unwilling to stand up for real free speech, and not once has the bastard ever said a word supporting or defending the real champions of freedom of expression in this country, those who have suffered greatly for standing up for Europe’s future: Jez Turner, Alison Chabloz, and (if I myself say so) me (among others).
No word of criticism of the Jew-Zionist element has crossed the lips of Fox, yet that alien element is not only behind much of the assault on free speech, but also behind much of the present migration-invasion.
Fox has even set up his own joke political party, which decided not to stand a candidate at Batley and Spen recently, because it might harm the Conservative Party vote!
Now this individual begs to be let back in to the System msm, and so pledges fealty to the contemporary decadence…
A rare week, in which John Rentoul beat my score. This week he scored 7/10, but I scored only 5/10, a far worse effort than usual. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 6, 7, 9, and 10 (I should have known no. 7, but the mind was blank, so there it is…).
Sadly, very true, though “Left wing” (eg “socialist”) is not fully accurate, certainly not the full story. The Jew-Zionist element has a near-stranglehold, as it does over the msm. In fact, not so long ago, the fake UK “charity” known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” was advertising for “volunteers” with their own Wikipedia accounts to “edit” (vandalize) Wikipedia pages.
Wikipedia is one of the best resources on the Internet, perhaps the best, which makes it all the more irritating that Jew-Zionists and others are using it to spread propaganda.
It is absurd, also, that the mainstream UK newspaper, the Daily Mail, cannot be cited as a source for anything, yet rubbish publications such as the Sun, Mirror, even Morning Star, can be! Incidentally, I have no reason to be kind to the Daily Mail, as you will see if you google “Ian Millard barrister Daily Mail”!
Also, we see that the trend for the State to “outsource” things has now led to the “Boris” etc weaselling that the facemask nonsense will largely end (in law) on 19 July 2021, while at the very same time telling the public that they “should” carry on being scared facemask-wearing rabbits, and also telling —or nod-and-winking— to large supermarkets etc, and airlines, that they should effectively demand that their customers continue to be muzzled.
Screw that, and screw all companies demanding facemask use! Rebel any way you can, especially by boycotting those companies. Vote with your feet, and with your wallet or purse!
After 2008, “austerity” (which was the policy not only of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne but also of Gordon Brown and Alastair Darling), was completely wrongheaded. Now, though, we see almost the opposite —but skewed— policy of vast sums spent, not on useful infrastructure, nor on real education and upskilling, but on schemes over the past 19 months to keep the population at home, eating delivered junk food, drinking heavily, and watching TV.
I too live in one of the wealthier parts of England, yet the roads are falling to pieces, and public services have been cut to the bone.

These people should be on our side! When I lived in Kazakhstan (1996-97), I knew several former Russian VDV (Air Descent Contingent…special forces) people. Very solid people.
(and in most of the USA, minimum-wage workers cannot afford even a one-bed apartment!).
The same or similar problem exists in the UK. Topping-up pay via Universal Credit is quite wrong; it subsidizes poor-paying-employers vis a vis employers who pay decently. Pay must be sufficient to live on. A measure of State-paid Basic Income will also have to come into existence, because the nexus between pay and work is very loose now, and many do not have paid work at all.
Stonehouse was a sensation when exposed as a fraud who had not died, as everyone thought, in 1974, in the sea off Miami Beach (a rather unlkely place to drown anyway). His espionage for socialist Czechoslovakia was not exposed to the public until well after his death.
That was an age when politicians, though hardly honoured, were still regarded as basically straight people. The later tidal wave of mediocre and hopeless idiots had not yet filled the Commons. That was another reason why people were fascinated by Stonehouse’s attempted (and very nearly successful) scam.
Other reasons why l’affaire Stonehouse became a sensation, briefly, were because it coincided with that Reginald Perrin TV comedy series, and also because a few other cases of international (British) fugitives had been news for years, notably that of Ronnie Biggs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Biggs].
I recall that, when I had to visit the British High Commission in Gaborone, Botswana, in 1977, at age 20, I noticed a small golden plaque by the entrance stating that it had been officially opened by John Stonehouse in 1966, when he had been a minister in the Colonial Office and its successor, the short-lived Commonwealth Office (from 1968, joined with the Foreign Office in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office).
Strange to see that inscription, nearly three years after Stonehouse’s disgrace (but history is history, something both the “BLM” idiots and Zionist Jews might note).
The Daily Mail piece also contained the assertion that one Ernest Fernyhough, PPS to Prime Minister Harold Wilson, had also been (one of a number of Labour MPs) spying for the Czech StB (external intelligence organization). His treachery is new to me, and I see that Wikipedia does not mention it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Fernyhough.
I imagine that Stonehouse, who was a bit of a Casanova, and a gambler generally, might have been a fairly useful agent for Czech Intelligence, willing to take calculated risks.
As to the book, to be released on 22 July 2021, I might buy the hardback edition via Amazon when it is put on secondhand sale in a few months. RRP is £25.99, but the book can be bought at £18.99. Maybe when there are good, or as-new, used copies for £2 or so. Or, if you like, “when you get down to 90 kopecks, wake me up again”.
Despite that Daily Mail piece having been interestingly written, it contained one schoolboy error by the author (of both the book and the article): speaking in the strict legal sense, Stonehouse did not commit, as the writer claims, “treason”; his alleged espionage crimes would have been charged, had he been charged, under the Official Secrets Act(s) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Official_Secrets_Act#United_Kingdom].
What a co-incidence! The new Secretary of State for Health, and also the person posing as PM, are apparently both now “self-isolating”. Of course, that has nothing to do with 19 July 2021, the day after tomorrow, and the (latest, so-called) “Freedom Day”…
The organized trade unions, what’s left of them, are basically just System-run, politically-correct, advice organizations, of very little use to British people whether employed or not.
I myself am not a member, nor even supporter (as such) of Patriotic Alternative, but the negative attention that PA is getting from “the usual suspects” makes me think that they are at least on the right track.
Terrible. Abuse of the helpless, disguised as “caring sharing” communitarianism. Typical of this poor country in the year 2021.
I missed Bastille Day, so here’s to Macron meeting with Madame Guillotine!
Last word tonight
Listening to BBC World Service and, once again, appalled by the poor standards now, as compared to the 1970s and 1980s, when I was a regular listener. Then, mostly interesting and erudite programming, and including some entertainment, ofwhich some eveentertained me. Now, endless black “music” or other ghastly trash, and “BLM”-style nonsense propaganda. 90% of the output now is rubbish.
Many criticize (in some cases, justly) the Reich for taking measures in the 1930s which in fact were at the time widespread across the world, not least in Britain, the British dominions, and in North America. Now it seems that our oft-sainted NHS is still doing the same, or very similar.
“White” psychoanalyst? That’s what the Mail may say… as for what Moss says, were it said, mutatis mutandis, by a (real) white European-race person about blacks, others or —a fortiori— about Jews, there would be a howl of rage about “Nazi” “hate speech”, and the speaker would soon find himself sacked and, quite likely, prosecuted (certainly in the UK).
I can think of at least one Twitter twit who fits the following reader’s comment (below)…https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/705793161 (“SirLyseAClot, Fremont CA, United States, 3 hours ago…Doctors choose a psychiatric residency when they are inept in all other fields, lack technical skills, and are scared to do actual procedures that result in actual outcomes – – this guy is a complete fool and his license should be revoked expeditiously“).
Keep clapping! Oh, no…wait…
In the end, there will be only one way to restore reasonable freedom and a reasonable society in the UK. I cannot express it here by reason of the existing repression.
If there is a general collapse of Western society, we may get only one chance to do what is necessary. Remember that. Only one chance.
That evil pack again. Silverman. Falter. A few others. The CAA exercises pernicious influence out of all proportion to its tiny membership of fanatical Jew-Zionists.
In the public mind, the Zeppelin (used as the generic term for lighter-than-air craft) has passed into history. Its heyday is generally thought of as being the First World War, when the airships were used by the Germans in early “terror” raids over English cities. Not only London: my own grandmother (b.1900), who for some reason now unknown had been sent from Berkshire to a boarding school at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, actually saw a Zeppelin over her school, probably in 1916.
[a Zeppelin over the Palace of Westminster, London, during the First World War]
Incidentally, the safety problems associated, in the public mind, with airships, were never great, in reality:
Hitchens is correct not only in his main point but also in his view of that Dunt person, who seems (from what I have seen) to have an unerring instinct for coming to the wrong socio-political conclusions.
The Jewish terrorist behind the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense
In fact, I do not agree with Hitchens re. Starmer being “deeply revolutionary”. He may well have read and even edited obscure Trotskyist publications when aged 20. Hitchens himself was a Trotskyist at that age, while I, at age 19 and living in a London attic, read, and regularly, everything from the anarchist newspaper Black Flag to the social nationalist magazine, League Review, and many another publication.
You cannot take someone’s views as they were at age 20 as being their settled viewpoints when they are 50, 60, or 70 years old. Keir Starmer may have more radical ideas than Boris Johnson, but for me the difference is that Starmer may actually have a few ideas, however limited, whereas part-Jew chancer, fraud and (ex?) public entertainer “Boris” has no ideas at all, beyond the schoolboy fantasies of bridges over rivers and oceans, artificial islands, tunnels to Ireland etc; the sort of ideas I had when aged about 13.
I wonder why…
Incidentally, that Silverman individual (“Head of Investigations and Enforcement” at the Jew-Zionist Israel-lobby “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”), was exposed in open court a few years ago as having been behind a number of pseudonymous Twitter and other trolling accounts. Most of the victims were women. He was also behind a malicious complaint made about me to Essex police (he lives in South Essex) in early 2017: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.
Their primary, and perhaps only, loyalty is to Israel (whether to the Israeli state as such, or to the Jewish people). At least, that is how it seems to me…”@mlewislawyer” is in fact now resident in Israel.
The monarchy in Britain, like so much else (the System political parties, the Bar, the Church —indeed, churches— etc) is now running on empty.
If you listen to the ahistorical nonsense that, eg, BBC World Service has been retailing about the above, the blacks in America have been prevented from being more affluent and/or powerful because of that one incident in one minor city 100 years ago. Oh, of course…
SPLC— a pack of Jews and/or “antifa” apologists.
Anne-Marie Waters and Tommy Robinson. Both pro-Israel, anti-Islam one-trick-ponies. Not real nationalists. Well, they are operating in tandem, it seems. Maybe they should get a rabbi to bless their unlikely (?) union…
I may not be the typical man-in-the-street voter, but I really cannot see any candidate so far declared at Batley and Spen for whom I would vote. Not one.
I should really blog in detail about the upcoming by-election, set down for 1 July 2021. Maybe this weekend I shall post something.
“In 1915 Feinberg traveled to Egypt and made contact with the British Department of Naval Intelligence. In 1917, he again went to Egypt, on foot. He was apparently killed on his way back by a group of Bedouins near the British front in Sinai, close to Rafah. His fate was unknown until after the 1967 Six-Day War, when his remains were found under a palm tree that had grown from date seeds in his pocket.” [Wikipedia].
How about that?! “…his remains were found under a palm tree that had grown from date seeds in his pocket.“
Well, now that the said Feinberg is apparently an Israeli hero-figure (they even have a stamp with his head on it), the suspicion must be that the bit about the palm tree and the date seeds is some kind of fairy tale. Still, it may well be true. These things happen.
I have not included the above in my blog to make any political or other point; it just struck me as interesting. Still, one could reflect on how one never knows how one’s actions may, long after one’s own death, bear unexpected fruit (in the case of Feinberg, literally, of course).
Readers of my blog will know that I am usually cautious about commenting about the political situation in countries with which I am not directly familiar (even Scotland), but idly browsing Wikipedia while listening to BBC World Service, I heard about the electoral impasse in Israel. I looked up the state of play on Wikipedia:
It seems that there 120 elected members. What is extraordinary is that Israeli politics is so fragmented that the party presently ruling, Likud [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Likud], has only 30 members out of that 120. Indeed, the whole minority government coalition headed by Likud only has 54 members.
The second-largest party in the Knesset, Yesh Atid [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yesh_Atid] has only 17 Knesset members. The next-largest party has 9. In fact, there are no less than 23 parties and Independent members represented, grouped into 13 parties and factions.
Compare that to the much larger UK House of Commons, where there are 16 parties and Independents but where, out of 650 MPs, 562 belong to only two of those parties.
Why is the Israeli parliament so fragmented? It may be that there is something in the Jewish psychology that tends to dissension, dissidence etc. That was certainly true of the various Marxist factions that used to exist in the Western world, especially in the realms of Trotskyism.
There again, the Israeli proportional representation system has a low threshold for representation: 3.25% (it was 1% at one time). In fact, there has never been a one-party-majority government in Israel.
Another aspect yet is that most of those parties were started not long ago. The main Opposition party, Yesh Atid, was only formed in 2012. Several others were formed even more recently, in the past two or three years. Likud, the presently largest party, was founded in 1973.
Well, there it is. A peculiar country. Interesting though. I am interested generally in countries which are contrived or artificial, as Israel surely is. Singapore would be another example. They tend to be small geographically; Israel is almost exactly the size of Wales (or New Jersey), while Singapore is not even twice the size of the Isle of Wight. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore.
Listening to some typical farm-owner whining on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme. Farmers in the UK always want it both ways, to be treated as independent businessmen and women, but given State subsidy or support at the same time. For me, it just does not wash.
One farmer had the right sort of ideas about small-scale farming, biodiversity, organics etc, yet wanted public money, in effect for not being an environmental vandal. Why should the public subsidize farmers at all? Better to impose environmental and animal welfare regulations, restrict imports, and let the farms be real private “businesses”. Alternatively, to put them largely into State ownership but give environment-friendly farmers or collectives long-term (even lifetime) leases.
Soon, there will be the Batley and Spen by-election. I shall be blogging about it in a week or so. The Labour Party vote has suffered a gradual decline in that constituency since the rigged by-election in 2016. After the assassination of Jo Cox, the System parties conspired to get another Labour Party MP elected, so an ex-soap actress was parachuted in, and the Conservative and LibDem parties did not stand. Pathetically, “controlled opposition” UKIP also failed to put up a candidate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.
Now Labour is relying, in the Batley by-election, on a kind of “sympathy vote” by putting up the sister of that assassinated MP. Pretty desperate…
The gradually-emerging UK police state in operation. Quite normal things criminalized, but real criminal acts ignored. Read The Protocols of Zion and you will be on the right track…
Boris-idiot is a gravity-defier, in both senses. Entirely unfit for any public office, yet there he sits, doing whatever he likes, whatever is expedient, whatever the Jewish lobby and/or his donors, and the ludicrously-misnamed SAGE committee (aka DUMB— “Department Under Matt and Boris”), want or “advise” him to do.
What if you don’t like “Boris” and his government? Well, then, this being a “democracy”, you can wait a few years and then vote for an ostensibly different party, which however will really be rather similar, except for some of the personnel.
I had one of those typical “lockdown”/”virus” experiences the other day.
I usually get fuel for car from an automatic pump quite a few miles away, so that I need not comply with the facemask nonsense, but I happened to be running low on fuel, so went to a nearer place, in fact the only nearer place.
Having put some fuel in the car, I went to the shop/kiosk to pay. I even donned a disposable facemask in order not to have to explain myself. Not enough! Having entered the shop, and as I was standing a few feet behind another customer, the cashier called to me and indicated that I should make a clockwise circuit of the island of shelves selling various goods, in order not to stand behind the customer already paying.
I noticed that little yellow circles with arrows had been applied to the floor. I had not noticed them on previous visits, and no-one had required me to make that little circuit, perhaps because I have usually been the only person waiting to pay in the shop.
Anyway, I made the circuit required, only to end up about…3 feet to the side of the customer paying! Apparently that was OK…
I recount this admittedly trivial experience as an example of how much of the population has thrown away all common sense since the virus “panicdemic” started in early 2020.
Isabel Oakeshott sells her civil rights cheaply! Why should she have to prove that she has been vaccinated, when firstly the virus is only fatal to one out of every 1,000 of the population and when, secondly, the vaccines are no guarantee of protection anyway?
Is the British population waking up yet? I doubt it. Sleeping. All but comatose. Vegetable-like.
What will it take to awaken the British people to the fact that “the virus” is nothing more than a reason, an excuse, and a facilitator, for a socio-political agenda?
When I was on Twitter, a large number of journalists and other “media folk”, as well as MPs, blocked me; with most of them I had had no direct contact. They simply did not want to even have to see, even inadvertently, any views that challenged their crippled world-view. Most of course, are dependent on the Jewish Zionist element for their large salaries and other monies. They are basically well-padded serfs.
That Metropolitan Police reply to the Jew troll Twitter account, “@gnasherjew”, displays an ignorance of the law irritatingly common among the police today.
Crown Court and other judges in, for example, the Alison Chabloz cases, have made it clear time after time in recent years that “antisemitism” is not a crime in England. Not a “hate crime”, not any kind of crime.
The same goes for so-called “holocaust” “denial” (an incident of historical revision and/or revisionism).
To use the language of the old-style bank managers, it is “disappointing” that the police, charged with upholding the law, so often now seem not to know or understand what the law actually is…
Twitter is full of the fact that the fake “British nationalist” known as Tommy Robinson has attended the quite small pro-Israel march in London, estimated as fewer than 10,000 (I think), compared to the 200,000-strong anti-Israel march recently.
The pro-Israel “activists” of that sort (others being “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc) are just a distraction; wastes of space.
The Jews who organized today’s small pro-Israel demonstration (only 1,500 attended, out of 250,000+ Jews in the UK), have issued statements criticizing “Robinson” for having attended. They despise him, yet there he was, literally wrapping himself in the Israeli flag! What more can he possibly do to try to ingratiate himself with “them”?
In fact, was I too generous in thinking that the crowd today numbered even 1,500?
Some Jewish newspapers have said “thousands” attended…Well, I think that we know that “their” arithmetic is often very inflated and contrived!
