Well, managed to get 9/10 this week, as against John Rentoul’s 5/10. I did not know the answer to question 8.

Monty Don

I like gardens (though not gardening). Were I to win the Euromillions, I would employ Monty Don to create a Xanadu for me. I enjoyed some of his TV shows, especially Monty Don’s Italian Gardens [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Don%27s_Italian_Gardens]. I see now that he has had a varied, indeed chequered life, rather like me in that sense: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Don.

I have repeatedly called for a massive cultural purge in the UK, hitting hard at the corrupt and interconnected msm, Westminster bubble, and “celebrity” parasites.

I myself have no courtesy left in relation to the facemask nonsense and the silly people who adhere to it, having had to put two or three facemask zealots straight in early 2020…

These days, not wearing a facemask does not even draw a glance.

I have noticed recently that fewer and fewer people are wearing their muzzles, but there is a hard core of the brainwashed who are still wearing them. In my nearest local supermarket, I think that the facemask wearers are somewhere in the 40% to 50% range now.

As said previously, I think that the facemask wearers mostly do it because of a wish to be seen doing it, or because they have not bothered to think for themselves, not for any spurious health reasons, though the propaganda over the past 18 months (and the now-mainly-gone legal sanctions) had a huge effect, now slowly dissipating.

The kind of insistent and insulting pro-maskers seen in the USA (see cartoon below) are rare anyway in the UK, I think.

Had I the power, I would give him early release, then have him parachuted into some inhospitable part of the ghastly backward country from which he came. Same with other similar ones.

Imagine the scene as they are forced to the door of the aircraft (over Afghanistan) and pushed out, with a parachute (if they are not difficult).

As previously blogged, I reluctantly accept that, as a matter of honour and loyalty, a relative few, those who helped British troops, and their families, should be evacuated (preferably to third countries, maybe with UK financial help), but that means dozens, maybe a few hundreds, not thousands or tens of thousands.

A part-Jew and part-Levantine chancer and liar, who is the perfect puppet for ZOG/NWO…

Well, there are 649 such cockroaches from which to choose the next ZOG/NWO puppet and bad joke.

It depends what is defined as a British film, but I might nominate Lawrence of Arabia.

A less obvious suggestion might be Pandora and the Flying Dutchman.

Even this, perhaps: Night of the Demon [aka Curse of the Demon], based on a story by M.R. James.

Exactly. NWO/ZOG. In various forms, it has existed for about 1,500 years; indeed, far longer, in a sense.

A textbook example of the unreality that was Corbyn-Labour. Tweeter “@jrc1921” actually showcases the calculations of BBC journalist Chris Mason, and does not seek to say that they are inaccurate, but persists in the idea that planting 200 trees per minute (i.e. more than 3 every second!) is both “feasible” and ” relatively conservative”!

True, a British equivalent of the 1970s Khmer Rouge could, in principle, get millions of people planting trees, even on such a scale. 100 million trees per year could be planted, were every single adult of appropriate age to plant 2 trees per year.

The devil is in the administrative detail. That is the unreality. Organizing 50 million people to plant 1 tree each, every 6 months. How? Where?

Not that I am against tree planting. Au contraire. Let’s do some good! Let’s have some fun!

Exactly my position, in the mundane sense. I call it social nationalism.

Not sure why intelligent commentators such as Hitchens persist in trying to squeeze people and policies into the now almost meaningless “Left”/”Right” straitjacket(s).

…and guess (((who))) or (((what))) is behind most of the repression of opinion in the UK? The (((You know who)))…

Exactly. Two moribund political parties. For the electorate, a false binary choice with, in general, the same sort of policies coming out in the end (in government).

The early 1960s (or late 1950s) comment about “redbrick” university expansion, by (?) Kingsley Amis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingsley_Amis], that “more will mean worse“, may have been partly snobbism, but God knows what he would have made of the 2021 situation, with so many “McUniversities” that one has not even heard the names of many of them; God only knows, also, what Amis would have thought of a Government minister (James Cleverly), whose “degree” is apparently in “Hospitality Management”; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly#Early_life_and_education.

Of course, the young people, say under 21, who support the nonsense put out by Extinction Rebellion and Greta Nut, were only 9 (or younger) when the chaotic and ludicrous 2009 Climate Change conference was held in Copenhagen. I remember it mainly for the little monkey who was President or Prime Minister for the Maldives, and who was constantly excitedly clapping above his head, especially when some delegates said that Europe should direct much money to countries facing inundation (in fact, 12 years on, and the Maldive islands are still there…). https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/The-Vote/2009/1220/Chaos-in-Copenhagen-behind-the-scenes-at-global-warming-summit

There may be climate change, in some degree (e.g. Australia is now certainly much hotter than it was in the 1960s when I was there), but that has happened throughout history. Humanity is only partly responsible. Moreover, whatever Britain, or even Europe does, is of small, indeed minimal, importance. Britain’s CO2 “emissions” are about 1% of the global whole.

“Climate change”, like “Covid-19” and other stuff (eg “Black Lives Matter” nonsense) has been distorted and weaponized by transnational conspirators, in order to impose an agenda. Call it “The Great Reset” (in part), if you like.

Ironic. The best way (perhaps the only way) in which Britain’s depleted navy could defend the UK now would be to sink the ships of the UK “Border Force”…

The police are now “too busy” (in their own minds, “too important”) to deal with the real crimes that matter to most people, just as most nurses are too busy or too important to deal with basic cleanliness of hospitals, (so cleaning has been outsourced to useless private companies).

Here is the Mattel company, with its new range of trouser-wearing, white-coated, stethoscoped ‘role model’ Barbies, frantically sucking up to the Spirit of the Age.

Not all of them are vaccine inventors like Dame Sarah. One is described as a ‘frontline worker’ who ‘joined forces with other Asian-American medics to fight racial bias in the pandemic’. Another is a psychiatrist who has ‘campaigned against systemic racism in the healthcare profession’.

And so once again we see a major corporation making its peace with the new regime. There is barely any company, institution, school, publication or church which has not done the same, or is not about to do it.

People who would have laughed at ‘loony Left’ councils 30 years ago now use language and follow rules which they once mocked when Ken Livingstone and his allies proposed them.

Those who claim to despise Jeremy Corbyn often follow the ideas he helped devise…

 You won't catch me mourning the loss of the traditional Barbie, though if it were up to me, the even more horrible Bratz dolls would be first on to any bonfire

And it is not just that they join in. They are afraid to criticise. Huge areas of opinion are now closed off from discussion, for fear of cancellation, advertising boycotts, and generally being cast into the outer darkness.

With gathering speed and completeness, a total revolution in thought and morals is taking hold of Western societies, just at the moment when they should be girding themselves against pressure to become more like China.

The zero-Covid fanatics, ready to throttle our society in pursuit of an illusion of perfect safety, have greatly benefited from this. And in the weeks to come the zealots of man-made global warming will press their dogmatic agenda and their demands that we impoverish ourselves to save the planet (demands China refuses to follow).

If all this had happened in a few weeks, while Red Guards slouched on street corners and the leaders of the old regime were dragged off to the firing squad, we’d see it for what it is. But, as long as there are enough loo-rolls in the supermarket, and the electricity keeps flowing, most people will never notice the revolution raging all around them.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Mail on Sunday].

Hitchens’ column this week is also worth reading for comment about both the ever-shrinking British naval reach, and the facemask nonsense.

GB News

I have still not watched the doomed GB News “controlled opposition” TV station. I have watched a few clips on Twitter. Today I saw another grovelling interview of a character from the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group and fake “charity” calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. This time it was CAA “Chief Executive” Gideon Falter.

The interviewer was one Michelle Dewberry [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle_Dewberry], described (I think rather kindly) by Wikipedia as “businesswoman, politician, presenter, and media personality.

The “businesswoman” bit seems to be based on two small businesses started 15-20 years ago, both of which seem to have bombed, though information seems limited.

As for “politician”, that seems to be founded on her two unsuccessful attempts to be elected as MP (once as Independent, once for Brexit Party).

As interviewer, I thought her grovellingly unwilling to challenge Falter. Other impressions? Semi-coherent, biased in presentation, and actually rather dull.

I do not suppose that Michelle Dewberry will find life tough once this TV station (pretending to be a media outlet for dissidence) collapses: she has a rather wealthy boyfriend [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Jordan#Personal_life].

How long before GB News does collapse? At a guess, 6-12 months.

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.

The Great Replacement. White Genocide. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan…https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi.

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.

In fact, I believe that the Clarendon Club, a political-historical club, whose meetings were addressed by such as David Irving [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Irving], used the hotel (I think that their name also referred back to Clarendon, the 19thC politician [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Villiers,_4th_Earl_of_Clarendon].

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.

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?

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.

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.

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).

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.

https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/b/marc-wadsworth-wins-libel-case-against-jewish-chronicle

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.

In the English-language version of his memoirs The Oak and the Calf [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Oak_and_the_Calf], the famous Russian writer and historian of the GULAG system, Alexander Solzhenitsyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn], had implied that a Romanian exile called Flegon [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1430648/Alec-Flegon.html] was controlled by the KGB. I was asked, informally, to advise on the matter, which was going to trial imminently, with Flegon acting as his own advocate.

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”!

Notes: I have just seen this: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.13173/wienslavjahr.8.2020.0240, by one Alexander L. Jacobson of Princeton, New Jersey, I presume from the University. Could not even get the nationality of Flegon right, describing him as “Russian”! See also: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BD,_%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA.

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).

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…

Fox, get lost.

Diary Blog, 17 July 2021, including the new book about John Stonehouse

Saturday quiz

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.

(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.

Spy story

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9796639/The-story-John-Stonehouse-told-great-nephew.html

Well-written Daily Mail puff for a new book about the arguably infamous, certainly egregious, John Stonehouse [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stonehouse], who did a “Reggie Perrin” in 1974. For those too young to remember Reggie Perrin, read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fall_and_Rise_of_Reginald_Perrin#Background_and_influence].

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].

[Addendum, 18 July 2021: I became aware today that Stonehouse’s daughter, Julia, an author and professional ghost-writer, has also just published a book about the John Stonehouse affair (“affair” in both senses): https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9776079/John-Stonehouses-daughter-breaks-silence-46-years-reveal-financial-deceit.html].

Sajid Javid and Boris-idiot

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”…

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.

A white psychoanalyst has published a paper in a respected academic journal branding whiteness ‘a malignant, parasitic like condition’ that is ‘incurable’ and triggers ‘perverse appetites,’ it has been revealed.” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9670579/Psychoanalyst-condemned-paper-branding-whiteness-malignant-parasitic-like-condition.html.

“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).

Diary Blog, 3 June 2021, including thoughts about Zeppelins and lighter-than-air flight

Interesting historical film

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]

It might be a mistake to think that airships have no future. I have always been interested in them as both passenger carriers and for freight carrying to places where transportation is difficult: deep forests, the Siberian taiga, Arctic and Antarctic areas, islands with limited or no port facilities, marshland, swamps etc. Airships could have uses for the police, too. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20191107-how-airships-could-return-to-our-crowded-skies; https://www.cnbc.com/video/2021/02/06/what-happened-to-blimps-and-why-airships-may-make-a-comeback.html

A British company is planning passenger flights between Belfast and Liverpool: https://www.belfastlive.co.uk/news/belfast-news/belfast-liverpool-flights-could-soon-20712897; other routes may soon be inaugurated: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/may/26/airships-for-city-hops-could-cut-flyings-co2-emissions-by-90

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.

So much for freedom…
