Britain is becoming a very strange country, on the one hand a nuclear power with all kinds of advanced technology, on the other hand a country where millions of its own citizens rely on foodbanks, millions more on State benefits, a country invaded daily by invaders in small boats as well as “legally” (and who are then housed in advance of actual British people). A country the currency of which shows signs of crashing.

Still, when the UK government is headed by a stupidly ignorant woman who only became an MP on her back, and when the Chancellor of the Exchequer is a woolly-headed n****r whose previous jobs included being a gopher at hedge funds, as well as a newspaper columnist…

…and let’s not forget our new Foreign Secretary, a half-caste with a “mcdegree” in “Hospitality Management”…

The EU as it now is is a facade of “liberal democracy” behind which is a core of NWO/ZOG power. Those who accept the EU at face-value are the kind of people who accept “trans” people as women, who accept the “panicdemic” as a real pandemic, and who think that only “discrimination” by Europeans has prevented blacks from creating a civilization, etc. They also accept the “holocaust” farrago as an unquestioned and unquestionable historical truth.

Treat the von der Leyen type as the evil tyrants they are.

It looks as though Italy has a leader.

Wake up, Hitchens. There is an NWO/ZOG-approved msm mob, mirrored by a vastly larger amateur mob of the same sort on Twitter etc. They all know what to say and not say— the amateurs out of “me too-ism”, and those scribblers and talking heads making a living out of it because they know that if they do not support, eg the Jew/Israel lobby, the NWO agenda in Ukraine, or re Russia, or re Assad etc, or the whole “panicdemic” farrago, or the whole “holocaust” farrago, then their “distinguished” careers stop right there. Right there.

Anyway, “distinguished” is usually very much in the eye of the beholder.

A “refugee” from Kiev, most of which has been little touched (so far) by the conflict.

Some of the Ukrainians in the UK are genuine refugees from war; most are not. They usually come from areas untouched by war, often have financial resources and/or expensive cars, and are looking for an economic or career opportunity.

Unexpected event

I visited the only fairly local supermarket this evening, a Waitrose branch. Outside the entrance to the building, a makeshift medical bed, like a large sleeping bag. Several staff were tending to the occupant, an elderly person. There were medic-looking cases or bags around, presumably from the first-aid room.

I did not like to stare, or interfere, in view of the fact that the incident was under control, but found out from one of the staff inside that someone had tripped over and was unable to get up. An ambulance had been called some 2 hours previously, but had not yet arrived. Two hours!

When I left, half an hour later, with my shopping, the patient was still there, still on the ground, and a member of staff had even moved up a large square parasol/umbrella from the Waitrose Cafe, to shield the person from a shower.

As I pushed my shopping to my vehicle, a large new Bentley passed by. Like something from a satirical sketch about Britain in 2022: if you are lucky, you drive off in a large new Bentley, if not so lucky you lie on a pavement, dependent on “the kindness of strangers”, until the NHS can organize itself to get around to you.

Eventually, I drove out. The patient was still lying, waiting and, needless to add, no-one was standing around clapping…

Britain 2022, where an ambulance takes hours to reach you.

Meanwhile, in some seaside resort, the pathetic remnants of the Labour Party were all going through the motions of praising “our NHS” etc, as they always do. Still, I suppose that the next General Election is now, rather surprisingly, suddenly theirs to lose.

As I blogged a day or two ago, “JimmySecUK” presents himself as “sometime journalist” and as a supposed specialist of some kind in the field(s) of “national security” and strategy, but seems unwilling to put either his name or his organizational affiliations (if any) on his Twitter masthead.

An example of his style:

At least Peter Hitchens is open about his identity, and that of his newspaper (of course, he actually has one).

I assessed Hitchens, some years ago, on the blog: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/

This is exactly the situation in respect of the UK msm. On many topics, but an obvious one would be the “holocaust” farrago.

I do not know for sure whether Europe is heading towards a third and even more disastrous “world” war, but it certainly seems that that might be the case.

I hope that that will not be the case, and that, if it is the case and does come to pass, a new and better civilization will eventually emerge from the ruins.

Very true. People have been easily brainwashed to regard Putin and Russia as some kind of danger to the UK. If the idiots just thought for a moment, they might wonder how Russia is a threat to the UK when even the invasion and occupation of a small part of Ukraine (which, after all, was effectively part of the same country as Russia until 1991) is not going well for Russia.

As an example of the kind of stupid person who actually knows nothing yet feels the need to comment publicly, look at the tweeted reply from one Louise Down, of Kent:

Why, asks the idiot, are some of the words of the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world being reported on?

What can one say? Has that kind of stupidity become more widespread since the population was conditioned and brainwashed during the “Covid” “panicdemic”?

I hope that some of the people who matter here, in the governments and legislatures of the West, are listening. Unfortunately, many are either NWO/ZOG drones or are anyway caught up in the delusion that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is also a Russia-UK [etc] conflict. It need not be, and is only so now because the System, including almost all of the msm, are making it so.

Ukraine has only been an independent state (failed state) for 31 years, years which have seen its people become the poorest in Europe, years of corruption and neglect.

Now the British public are told that “we” must support and even fight for that ramshackle failed state, for its mainly Jewish regime, and that said regime is one of democracy and freedom.

In fact, the Jew Zelensky and his regime have closed down all opposition parties, arrested or shot those opposed to war with Russia, and closed down all trade unions.

…thus surely proving conclusively that Liz Truss has no idea at all about economic matters, having already been proven to have no idea about foreign affairs.

I thought that the governments of Theresa May and “Boris”-idiot were bad jokes, but this present “shitshow” (in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP) takes the biscuit.

Thinking the unthinkable, what would happen if Russian forces were to use tactical nuclear weapons to target Kiev-regime concentrations on or near the present front line? It might be that Russian forces would also be affected. What if (thinking the even more “unthinkable”) Putin were to destroy the city of Kiev? That might collapse the whole Kiev-regime “state” of Ukraine overnight.

I doubt that Putin would do it, if only because Kiev was not only the first “Ukrainian” city, but the first Russian city (after Novgorod), the strategic centre of Kievan Rus: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.

[the region in question in the 9th century]

Of course, large-scale destruction of cities is not new. We only have to think of the ancient cities which no longer exist: Troy, Carthage (destroyed two or, arguably, three times, and now replaced by modern Tunis) and many others. In the 20th century, the Americans and British inflicted huge damage on a number of cities during, mainly but not exclusively, the Second World War. The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain the only ones destroyed or nearly-destroyed by atomic weapons.

Looking at the war-drums now beating in the Western msm, it all sounds very much like an organized campaign to foment war on a huge, trans-continental scale.

Had there been no Western (NATO, NWO) support for the Zelensky regime, meaning billions of dollars or pounds of actual money, as well as arms and ammunition, the war would now be over bar the shouting. Now, Ukraine faces a protracted and even more terrible war, and countries such as the UK face the possibility (which grows more likely daily) of nuclear annihilation.

This madness should stop, but will not, because powerful and influential forces want Russia to be, ideally, subjugated or, if that cannot or does not happen, wiped out.

Not that no blame attaches to Russia. As I blogged from the start, the performance of the Russian Army has been appalling. The Russian General Staff have shown themselves to be a pack of idiots, and the GRU has shown itself unfit for purpose. We know what Stalin would have done in such a circumstance.

Where are the once-dreaded Russian Spetsnaz forces?

The invasion of Ukraine could and should have been done very swiftly, relentlessly, and with minimal hurt, bloodshed and damage.

As Imperial Russia was once known, and then the Soviet Union (in the 1930s), “a colossus on legs of straw“, and many of its top military people, men of straw.

This situation, meaning the whole war, could change quickly. We could yet see Russian forces overwhelm the whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.

The Zelensky regime and its Ukrainian faux-state is just a shell, really. No economy to speak of, no legitimacy, its armed forces only surviving by reason of huge amounts of NATO and other donated weaponry.

The morale of the Kiev-regime forces does seem to be higher than that of the Russian forces in theatre, no doubt because the former see themselves as fighting for their native land, but morale is only determinative if the soldiers remain alive. If those statistics about Ukrainian losses are broadly accurate, they are staggering.

Did I read that Toby Young and his “Free Speech Union” spoke up when prominent Patriotic Alternative members Laura Towler, her husband Sam Melia, and Mark Collett had their personal bank accounts closed, not by court order but because the bank staff disapproved of their views (or were told to “disapprove”)?

No. Because Toby Young and the Free Speech Union never did speak up.

Neither did Young and his “Free Speech Union” say a word in defence of Alison Chabloz (imprisoned for singing songs and posting songs quite truthfully lampooning Jews and Jewish behaviour), Jez Turner (imprisoned for urging removal of Jews from the UK in a speech), nor indeed in defence of my rights.

The extreme Jew-Zionists have been at least trying to persecute me for about a decade now, though with little success: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and, most recently, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

Still, half a glass is better than none, I suppose. At least Toby Young says the right sort of words on freedom of expression.

Hitchens, though, blames the instrument of repression (the modern technology) rather than the present socio-political “System” itself, and/or the Jew-Zionist lobby (which is behind most of the attacks on free speech in the UK).

In fact, many actual MPs have fabricated large parts of their own history. One of the most egregious cases, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, was proven to have simply invented parts of his CV, and to have embellished most of the rest, yet he is still interviewed respectfully by msm talking heads; and that is before one even considers his nasty and backward policies as DWP Secretary of State 2010-2015.

I am just wondering why anyone would think that claiming to have worked for Jim Murphy would boost his career. Murphy was a student for 11 years (yet still left without having been awarded a degree), and as MP was an eager expenses cheat:

A 2010 commission chaired by Thomas Legg demanded Murphy repay £577.46 in expenses which he had overclaimed. He did not appeal, and repaid the money in full. Expenses documents made available showed he also claimed over £1 million between 2001 and 2012. In 2007/8 he claimed £3,900 for food, £2,284 for petty cash and £4,884 for a new bathroom. He claimed £249 for a TV set and a further £99 for a TV stand; £1762.50 of taxpayers money paid for Murphy’s website whilst further claims included Labour party adverts in the local press. He claimed almost £2000 of public cash to pay private accountants to handle his tax returns.[50]

In 2012, Murphy was among a group of 27 MPs named as benefiting from up to £20,000 per year expenses to rent accommodation in London, at the same time as letting out property they owned in the city. Although the practice did not break rules, it has been characterised as a “loophole” that allows politicians to profit from Commons allowances. He also designated his constituency home in Glasgow as his second home for which he claimed £780 a month in mortgage interest payments in 2007/2008.”

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

Jim Murphy was a major reason why Scottish Labour now scarcely exists. He is employed (or was, the last I heard of the bastard), as a gopher by Tony Blair.

[see also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career].

Blair certainly had some odd people in his government. Apart from Murphy (a fervent pro-Zionist, but also a fanatical teetotaller, vegetarian —that’s OK by me— and Roman Catholic —ambivalent as to that—), there was also that Welsh lesbian (another expenses cheat, another pro-Zionist too) who admitted that she was too thick to do her job, and that extreme Roman Catholic (Opus Dei) woman, who wore a spiked belt under her clothing, like a nun in a Ken Russell film. And that’s just three of them.

Incidentally, I believe that the thick Welsh lesbian expenses cheat (and Jews’ puppet) was in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet until last year, while the Opus Dei woman, Ruth Kelly, now works for the Vatican, having also worked for HSBC for 5 years, 2010-2015. She left the Labour party in 2018 because she disliked Corbyn, and joined the “conservative” pressure group Policy Exchange.

More from the evil “trans” lobby

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11235021/Trans-activist-called-father-fascist-claims-protecting-friend.html

A trans activist who called a father a ‘fascist’ as he was holding his baby has apologised but claimed the abuse was an attempt to ‘protect’ her trans friends – amid calls for her to be sacked from her job as a Labour MP’s aide. 

Carly-May Kavanagh, a policy caseworker in the House of Commons for Brighton MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle, is shown in footage with another woman shouting at the unidentified man with the baby in his arms at a rally in Brighton.

…The friend tells the man: ‘Oh you’re raising a little fascist’. 

Miss Kavanagh then joins in and tells the unidentified man: ‘F****** fascist… you think that’s a good idea, do you, to raise a child who believes this filth […] you are disgusting.’ At one point she comes within inches of the baby, which remains calm.”

[Daily Mail]

It looks as if that pair deliberately targeted the man because he was carrying a baby, and so would be less likely to hit them (which they well deserved).

I wish that there existed an English “SA”, members of which would [further comment redacted in our “free” country…].

More seriously, eventually we are going to have to deal with all this nonsense and much more besides. It will not be pleasant, it will not be pretty, and it will be hard on the quiet heroes who will be tasked with doing it, but it will have to be done.

Incidentally, the lady tweeter’s comment means “real guys” or “real good fellows” (ha…not “Goodfellas“, I hope, thinking of the American film).

Of course, for “NATO” (NWO/ZOG) to have a nuclear war with Russia would be totally mad —for all sides and none— but, looking at 1914 and 1939, that does not mean that it will not happen.

Russia should make it clear to both decision-makers and the public in the West (if it can) that any nuclear war would mean Russia targeting not only military and naval bases etc, but also large cities.

The American public are all too used to cheering on their bombers and missiles, as they strike cities far from the USA, cities the inhabitants of which have no means of defence or retaliation, but I think that that same American public will not be quite so brave if they think that they themselves are soon going to be fighting for survival in a nuclear wasteland.

As for the UK, our country is too small for any doubt to exist: a nuclear war with Russia means that most of the country will be destroyed, meaning almost everything razed to the ground, and the areas made uninhabitable, whether air bases, ports, or cities are the target.

Sadly, the fate of my country is not in my hands but in those of near-cretins such as Liz Truss, Ben Wallace, and James Cleverly.

I am not “allowed” (in our “free” country) to say…

Import the backward hordes, and you also import their politics and their ancient hatreds.

The knaves and/or traitors at a high level in Britain have, for over 70 years, permitted and even encouraged the importation into this country of backward hordes of various types. Those hordes have, since allowed in, been breeding prolifically. It already looks like an existential crisis not only for the British people but for Britain as a nation.

Meanwhile, the State regards all attempts by young Englishmen to gather together in defence of race, nation, and culture as a form of “terror threat”, to be stamped on by the police and security services.

Another “strange” (perhaps not so strange) anomaly is that quite a number of young Jews go every year from the UK, France etc to Israel to be trained in the use of automatic and semi-automatic weapons, as well as in Israeli techniques of street-fighting. The Jewish influence over the UK political milieu, as well as the police, means that this is regarded as not a problem for the UK…

Because “the government”, i.e. the System, is signed-up to destroying the racial and cultural integrity of this country, and the rest of civilized Europe, via the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan: https://vk.com/@judi1964-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-stealth-genocide-against-the-peoples. That’s why.

I would in any case encourage all parents in the UK to homeschool their children. Many think that it is either illegal or very difficult. Not so. See https://www.gov.uk/home-education.

The cost, though huge, is not the main problem with this.

As to numbers, you only have to look. In 2018, “only” 299 actually crossed the Channel in small boats. Last year, 2021, that had grown to over 25,000, and this year is estimated to reach 65,000.

One or two well-publicized incidents of migrant-invaders being shot and killed in the Channel by the Royal Navy, and few would even try.

That, of course, cannot happen, not because of international conventions and/or similar bs, but because, as previously noted, the political system in the UK is wholly adherent to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, to basically bastardize the peoples of Europe.

What Hitchens does not say is that almost all of the crowds were white English or at least British; very few blacks and browns. Pretty obvious why— this country, and its history and traditions, mean little or nothing to 99% of them. In a word, they are alien.

Speaking of journalistic effluvia, I saw a piece of fake Union Jack-waving nonsense from Andrew Neil last week, saying what a wonderful and united country Britain is, and how we should all be grateful and —implied, at least— not try to change it.

Andrew Neil used to be the best political interviewer around, and also a perceptive commentator, though he sometimes made the odd and silly rant on his late-night TV show, usually attacking “nazis” etc. Still, he was almost always worth watching or, to a lesser extent, and in the msm, reading. He has really begun to disappoint.

Incidentally, it is both amusing and pathetic to see the self-describing “Left” (I myself never use left/right labelling) angry (not angry really, of course, but just virtue-signalling) about the cost of the funeral etc of the late Queen.

The same idiots do not care that (already) several BILLION pounds annually is being wasted on the hotels, council housing, food, gifts, pocket-money and other things (eg NHS care) for cross-Channel migrant invaders, almost all of which invaders are entirely useless, and quite a number actively hostile and/or criminal.

Interview with the Iranian President

So here we are, 77 years after the end of the Second World War, after the bombing of Germany by the Allied forces (death toll 600,000-800,000), after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after Vietnam, after the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan (hundreds of thousands killed), and after all sorts of other American transgressions, but when CBS 60 Minutes has a chance to interview Presiodent Raisi of Iran, what is the hot question? “Did the “holocaust” happen?

The Iranian should have replied that no-one really claims that large numbers of Jews found within Reich territory were not detained, but most of those worked in industrial camps, and the majority that survived were released at the end of hostilities (and then went to various places, including Palestine, where they chucked many Palestinians out of their homes and took them over; stole their homes, if you like).

In fact, there is no credible evidence for much of the “holocaust” farrago, in particular the “biggest lie”, that about supposed “gas chambers”.

Any simple internet search will also turn up literally thousands of cases of “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, fraud etc, from quite obscure examples to famous ones such as the supposed Anne Frank diary.

Incidentally, the interviewer sent from the USA is Jewish —and almost certainly Zionist— perhaps needless to add: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesley_Stahl#Early_life_and_education.

Whatever the truth of the Ukraine atrocity reports, it is ironic that much of the venom against Russia comes from people in the USA, some influential. You would hardly know that, ever since the Second World War, the USA has been committing atrocities of all sorts (from officially-approved ill-treatment and torture right through to wiping out whole populations with atomic bombs), and against not only enemies in the field but also civilian populations. Where? Where not (almost): Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon (etc).

The world’s leading medical journal has conceded that the Covid pandemic could have been sparked by a laboratory leak and admits that the virus may have been engineered by scientists.

...this is a remarkable turnaround for the 199-year-old Lancet, which printed an infamous article condemning suggestions of a lab leak as ‘conspiracy theories’.

However, the journal – which says the world should take ‘seriously’ both main hypotheses – has also suggested the virus could be linked to laboratories in the US, provoking fears it is still promoting China’s cause rather than good science.

I myself have never had the “Covid” “vaccine(s)”, let alone the supposed “boosters”. I know a few people who have had them. Unpleasant but probably temporary side-effects in a few cases, but in others far more serious problems, including two people, both younger than me (I am 66) and without any history of heart problems, who have both had to have heart surgery recently; one triple by-pass, one quadruple by-pass.

Same as Canada and Trudeau, mutatis mutandis. Is there not one New Zealander…(?)

I think that it was Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] who wrote that, starting (if I recall aright) at the end of the 20th century, “the mask of Evil [in the world] will start to come off“.

We can see this in, inter alia, the whole “Covid” situation. Not least, the increasing realization that many of the leaders and leading propagandists of the various countries, and particularly the most important countries of the West, are part of a pretty tight cabal or series of cabals.

Look at, say Jacinda Ardern. Not just Prime Minister of New Zealand, but before that operating at a high level, more or less behind the scenes, in the Labour Party in the UK. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinda_Ardern.

We are talking about “the usual suspects”, aka “the Wise Men of the West”, including Bilderbergers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_meeting.

A proper government would machine-gun hostile invaders on the beaches, or before they reach shore. That was what warmongering old Churchill wanted to do to any German invaders in 1940, and these untermenschen, and any children they will have, are a far bigger threat to Britain’s future than the German Army ever could have been.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.

It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).

I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.

We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62923994

Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.

A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?

The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.

It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.

In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.

The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).

My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.

I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.

I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?

We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.

The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.

This will all look very different in six months’ time.

Charles III

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/13/oh-god-i-hate-this-king-charles-expresses-frustration-over-leaking-pen

King Charles has been seen airing his frustration during a ceremony for the second time in four days while in Northern Ireland.

The new monarch was shown signing a visitor’s book in front of cameras at Hillsborough Castle, near Belfast. He reacted after the pen he was using leaked on him.

“Oh god I hate this (pen)!” Charles said, standing up and handing the pen to his wife, Camilla, Queen Consort.

“Oh look, it’s going everywhere,” Camilla said as her husband wiped his fingers.

“I can’t bear this bloody thing … every stinking time,” Charles said as he walked away.

When completing the documents on Tuesday he also used the wrong date, before checking with an aide who told him it was 13 September not 12 September.

At the accession council on Saturday, an irritated Charles had signalled for aides to move a pen holder and pens that had got in his way as he signed documents.

[The Guardian].

Peevish. Self-absorbed. Trivial.

The warning markers are all there.

I think that the Monarchy, in a living sense, ended with the death of the late Queen.

Incidentally, Charles has given orders to sack most of his loyal staff at Clarence House [https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/13/king-charles-staff-given-redundancy-notice-during-church-service-for-queen].

Is that a sign of what a “King Charles III” monarchy will be like? Much public virtue-signalling but no real concern for people?

Rather like most present System politicians, clergy and msm scribblers, not to mention Twitter-twits.

Actually, looking at him, I wonder how long Charles will be there.

The Guardian

The Guardian also speaks up for some free speech [https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/sep/13/britain-free-speech-heckles-prince-andrew], but I have, in the past decade, seen nothing along those lines to defend the rights of freedom of expression of someone (me) tweeting completely correct and accurate tweets about the behaviour of, inter alia, some government ministers, and some Jews, and some non-whites in our country: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

Neither have I seen The Guardian defending those who speak out in speeches against the Jew-Zionist lobby, people such as Jez Turner (Jeremy Bedford-Turner): see https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/may/14/ex-soldier-guilty-of-racial-hatred-after-cps-initially-declined-to-prosecute; and https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-44116895.

I have likewise seen no Guardian defence of people such as singer-songwriter and satirist Alison Chabloz (repeatedly targeted, and even imprisoned, for poking fun at some Jewish behaviour, in the manner or style of Charles Dickens: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10732361/Anti-Semitic-blogger-Alison-Chabloz-58-compared-Auschwitz-theme-park-jailed.html).

Military situation in Ukraine

The Daily Mail has offered analysis of the Ukraine situation not very favourable to the Russian side: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11206285/Vladimir-Putin-no-good-options-react-Ukraine-says-military-expert-JUSTIN-BRONK.html.

Written by an analyst from the Royal United Services Institute: academic background at Westminster School, the University of York (History), and the LSE (International Relations). No direct military experience. Still, worth reading:

In less than a week, more than 3,000 square kilometres of Ukrainian territory had been liberated, massive stockpiles of ammunition, weapons and armoured vehicles captured for use by Ukrainian forces, and the entire Russian position in North-Eastern Ukraine completely destabilised. 

Russian forces have not suffered such a serious and rapid military defeat on the battlefield since the Second World War.

Worse still for Putin is that fact that he has no good options for how to react now. 

The majority of his potentially mobile and elite units in Ukraine are still concentrated in Kherson to the south, and are facing a serious and ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operation that cannot be ignored. 

Furthermore, by signalling for so long that Kherson was target for liberation, Ukraine has baited Russia into accepting an attritional battle in a very militarily disadvantageous position. 

The region of Kherson Oblast that Russia is trying to hold onto is on the Western bank of the wide Dnipro river.

The US-supplied long range HIMARS rocket artillery system has allowed Ukraine to effectively destroy the only two crossing points – the Antonovsky Bridge and the bridge at Nova Kahkovka – and regularly destroy the temporary pontoon bridges and ferry crossings that the Russian Army has tried to build instead. 

As such, the large concentration of Russian forces defending Kherson are dependent on highly disrupted and bottlenecked supply lines, meaning that they are rapidly running low on medical supplies, food and above all ammunition.

This is an attritional battle that favours Ukraine due to the territory involved but for Putin, Kherson has to be defended politically due to its status as the one major Ukrainian city taken roughly intact during this invasion.

Now with his northern flank collapsing, Putin cannot easily withdraw elite units from Kherson, since it would risk a second major rout in the face of the ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operations there. 

Even if he tries to withdraw some forces, the blown up bridges and frequently-struck temporary crossing points over the Dnipro mean it will be difficult to transfer heavy equipment and vehicles out of Kherson. 

If his forces stay put in the south, then the majority of Russia’s usable combat power will be trapped with their backs to the river and steadily ground down by a Ukrainian force that has much better supply lines, more troops and so can sustain an attritional artillery duel for longer. 

However, if the Kherson front were to collapse, it would be such a political and military disaster coming soon after the stunning defeat in Kharkiv that Russian military morale might totally disintegrate, or Putin might even find himself threatened by discontented factions within the Russian power structure at home.

[Daily Mail]

Bronk? Odd name. I wonder what are its origins.

Here is the Daily Mail map:

While “3,000 square kilometres” sounds vast, and is in fact about twice the area of Greater London, it is only 1% of the land area of Ukraine, and about 5% or so of the area controlled until recently by Russian forces.

Until now, Russian attacks on a large scale have only affected areas east of the Dnieper, areas in the Sea of Azov and Back Sea coastal belt, and —at the start of the invasion— areas around Kiev.

Until very recently, Russia has not much attacked the strategic civilian infrastructure of most of the Western part of Ukraine, or even Kiev— electrical supply, water supply, gas supply, railways, airports, major roads etc.

It may be that Putin is considering doing just that, possibly even using tactical nuclear weapons, in order to degrade the surviving economy and lifestyle of the Ukrainian population living hundreds of miles away from the battlefields of Eastern Ukraine and the South.

On a related point, there are, even now, a few cranks, mostly aged persons, who have not woken up to the fact that the facemask nonsense is yesterday’s news (yesterday’s State-sponsored panic campaign). I was in Waitrose earlier today, and saw two people still wearing their facemask muzzles: some old bird buying a load of medicines, filthy-looking “disposable” mask half-worn; the other a loony-looking old fellow wearing his muzzle, driving out of the car park in his own car (in which he was the only occupant!).

I have also seen a few hysterical Jews on Twitter waiting to be told by “authority” that the “panicdemic” is over before they ditch the muzzles. Complete idiots.

It will be hard (I think, I hope) for the transnational conspiracy to resurrect “Covid” as a way of corralling the masses again. Too many people in the UK and across the world have woken up to it all.

I wonder what the next ploy will be. The conspiracy has already tried “monkeypox”, only for even the tame msm scribblers to discover that it affects mainly men who do anal sex, so that failed to fly with the public as a whole.

Perhaps some new and “unexpected” “variant” or whatever will “suddenly appear”, frightening the public again, but the story will have to be pretty alarming to get the bulk of the people on board again.

In the meantime, other “campaigns” have been launched, notably the “I stand with Ukraine” rubbish.

In case any readers are wondering why I now rarely repost material from Nick Griffin, the reason is because I was expelled from Twitter in 2018, at the instigation of a pack of Jews. As a result (and because I have no “sock accounts”, and because Twitter has started even more-reressive censorship), I cannot even read most of Griffin’s tweets because they are “restricted by age” etc.

Twitter has done everything possible to gag Griffin short of actually expelling him. It is made difficult to search for his tweets, and even then there is a pathetic warning notice in place.

As I predicted, Elon Musk realized that Twitter is partly, perhaps largely, a scam, and not a genuine and profitable enterprise. Musk has withdrawn and will not be buying into it.

That tweet is from a year ago, but it bears repetition, especially as Blair now goes around the world touting himself as the great retired statesman, pronouncing on grand strategy and high policy…

What a contrast. In fact I wondered, a day or so ago, what the late Queen had thought of the Prime Ministers she had known— Churchill, that flawed titan; then the others, varying in ability and sincerity but mostly, though not all, at least able to play the part and not look totally out of place: Eden, Macmillan, Douglas-Home, Wilson, Heath, Wilson again, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron (-Levita), May, Johnson, and now Truss.

One sees the general decline in stature, though, over those decades.

Hard to bracket Liz Truss in the same sentence, let alone the same office, as Churchill, much as I think that his policy toward the German Reich was completely wrongheaded.

Churchill got Britain and the Empire involved in that disastrous war which killed off not only the German Reich but also the British Empire and indeed, not far down the line, all the European imperia (French, Spanish, Italian, Belgian, Dutch), and much else besides.

Liz Truss seems intent on creating conflict, or making worse the relations between Russia and the West, or even fomenting a state of war between Russia and the UK. If that were to happen, we should all be joining the late Queen and Churchill sooner than most of us anticipated. Britain could scarcely survive if there were war on the strategic scale.

Biden

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11198817/Bidens-Irish-Catholic-mom-hated-English-told-NOT-bow-Queen-met-1982.html

Biden’s mother sounds as if she was both quite mad and extremely unpleasant. You get that kind of silliness with some Irish-Americans though. I recall being introduced about 31 years ago to some fat woman in New Jersey, an acquaintance of an American friend. Her first words to me were “well, I’m Irish, so I shouldn’t like you!“. A kind of joke, but with a definite edge.

Of course, Irish-Americans are a lot more American than they are Irish. Many of the more ignorant ones seemed (when I was living in the USA in the early 1990s) to think that “England” (always England, not UK or Britain) was in a kind of war with Ireland.

They had no idea that the “war” between not Ireland but the IRA, and the UK authorities, was confined mainly not only to the six counties of Northern Ireland (Ulster, to use the name of the ancient province) but to a few small areas, mostly urban, within that province, and also confined to quite small numbers of the population.

There were exceptions to the prevailing ignorance. The owner of McSorley’s Old Ale House in Manhattan, which I occasionally visited if nearby, was an intelligent man who visited Ireland (the Republic) a couple of times a year (for river fishing). He understood the real situation, but few other Irish-Americans (most of whom had never left American shores, and got their ideas of the world from appallingly-poor American TV news reports) knew any more about it than they did about, say, Iraq.

[John French Sloan, McSorley’s Bar, 1912]

The above painting, though from 1912, shows an almost identical scene to the one I knew in the early 1990s.

In origo, so are “council” and “counsel“. The Monarch’s “counsel” was provided by his or her “council”. In Russian, there is still only one word for both “council” (as in a group of advisers and/or a local or other governmental or political body) and “counsel” (as in “advice“)— “soviet” [совет].

If these reports (from sources supportive of the Kiev regime) are accurate, the Russian leadership will have to escalate the armament used, and soon, or accept bitter, if relatively localized —and possibly temporary— defeat in large parts of the region.

If Russia becomes again as weak as it was in the 1990s, the Chinese will be able to heavily infiltrate, and perhaps in effect take over, the whole of the one-time Soviet Far East, and possibly all of Eastern Siberia. Maybe in time even all of Siberia.

Thoughts for today

SEYTON

The queen, my lord, is dead.

MACBETH

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

[Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5]

I have seen a few comments on Twitter, mostly from the sort of people who are now quite often in evidence in England, for example from one well-known pro-Labour (Corbyn-Labour, lesbian, and half-caste) activist, to the effect that the death of Queen Elizabeth is of no importance, and that people should focus on energy prices, low pay, inadequate State benefits etc. I disagree.

The death of even one person has meaning, and when the death is that of a truly global figure such as Queen Elizabeth, the State and the society of —in this case— England and Britain is shaken to the core, no matter what else, even of great importance, is happening at or around the same time.

It is not a matter of whether one is a monarchist or not. I myself am not —as such— a monarchist or royalist, and believe that different socio-political arrangements fit national requirements at different times. Neither of my parents was royalist and, in the early 1960s, the royals (mainly the Queen herself, and the Queen Mother), were only glimpsed (by my own family) from afar, both on the TV and at the racecourse (Ascot, Newbury and, occasionally but later, in the early 1970s, Windsor).

All the same, for an Englishman such as myself, born in 1956, only a few years after the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth, her presence, even though experienced mainly on television or in the Press, has been part of the backdrop for my own life, and the lives of others of my generation, whether we like it or not.

As a person usually described as “social nationalist”, though others say some variety of “national socialist”, and even (per the Dowager Lady Birdwood, circa 1975), “national bolshevik“, I cannot but wonder whether all the inhabitants of these islands are affected similarly by this momentous and very recent event.

While I have met blacks (West Indians and a few others) who were both royalist and also had quasi-patriotic feelings about the UK, my impression is that the bulk of the “blacks and browns” (and other such as Chinese) now in the UK have no such feeling or sentiment.

The young Jamaicans, or other West Indies-origined, of the inner cities, the hordes of more recent Chinese immigrants who have flooded the UK (especially though not exclusively in London and the south of England), the Pakistanis and other Muslims, the fake or other “refugees” of various kinds (eg the recent though smallish Ukrainian or supposedly Ukrainian influx) have no sentiment toward either this country or the Monarchy. To them, even those born here, Britain is a place to live in, benefit from, in some cases work in or make money in. A mere geographic space. Most of them have no patriotic feeling, no knowledge of our history, no real connection at all. They are just…here.

I am talking not about politics, or policy, or power, but of

This royal throne of kings, this scepter’d isle,

This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,

This other Eden, demi-paradise,

This fortress built by Nature for herself

Against infection and the hand of war,

This happy breed of men, this little world,

This precious stone set in the silver sea,

Which serves it in the office of a wall

Or as a moat defensive to a house,

Against the envy of less happier lands,–

This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England

[Shakespeare, Richard II] [https://interestingliterature.com/2019/12/analysis-john-of-gaunt-this-sceptred-isle-speech/].

There is also an age-demographical point here. The younger English too (and Welsh and Scottish) people around, particularly those aged maybe up to 35, are often emotionally distant not only from the Monarchy, but also from the race and nation.

You see msm vox pop, or Twitter, comments, or appearances on TV quiz shows, from those broadly “young”, let us say 18-30, which are so lacking in basic knowledge of England’s (and the world’s) history etc that those talking might as well have just arrived from Mars.

For many of the “young”, the members of the Royal Family are, as I have blogged in the past, basically denizens of the empty and stupid milieu of supposed “celebrity”, not essentially different from the casts of The Only Way is Essex, Made in Chelsea, or whatever else of a similar nature.

Indeed, with the marriage of “The Harry formerly known as Prince” and “the Royal Mulatta” (Harry and Meghan of that ilk), the two previously acquainted but once very different worlds of British Monarchy and “celebrity culture” have collided, with disastrous results, even so far.

As I have blogged on one or two previous occasions, it is not only the British population that has changed; so have “the royals”.

Whatever one may have thought of the late Queen and Prince Philip, they were traditionally and unmistakeably royal. They could never have been mistaken for “the common people”, not even the most ultra-wealthy “commoners”. They would certainly never have been mistaken for members of the suburban middle classes, or the working class or classes.

It can be seen that that unmistakeable “royality” slid somewhat in the generation of Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. The younger two, Andrew and Edward (born 1960 and 1964), in particular, might be considered similar, at least in some respects, to their neighbours in suburban or semi-rural Surrey or Berkshire. Think of Andrew and “Fergie”, living in their sprawling villa, the so-called “South York”; Edward wanting to run a theatre company; Edward’s wife carrying on (until it became an embarrassment) with her public relations enterprise.

That’s before we even get into the various sex scandals and rumours. I blogged three years ago (with updates) about Andrew’s egregious behaviour: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/11/the-jew-epstein-and-prince-andrew-the-british-royal-family-has-another-scandal-maybe-its-time-to-just-get-rid-of-them/.

Of course, there have been many other scandals and, most recently, the scurrilous rumours about the next generation, mostly about Prince William.

While the Andrew/Edward generation could be said to be not far, in terms of lifestyle, from the very wealthy of the Home Counties, the William and Harry generation are not so far in attitude and lifestyle from quite ordinary, albeit very wealthy, commoners of their own age. If “Fergie’s” parents were an Army major and a mother, as “Fergie” has said, “from country gentry with a bit of old money“, Kate Middleton’s parents’ origins are that the father, though from a wealthy background (and later wealthy in his own right, via business), worked as a flight dispatcher, while Kate’s mother had been an air hostess.

Subtle differences but, over three generations making, overall, a big difference.

So now we have King Charles III, whom I regard as a basically well-meaning but also incredibly self-absorbed person who is more “at sea” ideologically and/or intellectually than most people think; perhaps more than he himself thinks.

Regular readers of the blog may recall that I blogged once or twice about how I met with and very briefly (a few minutes) talked with the then Prince Charles in late 1996, when I was invited to a royal reception (about 25-30 people) held at the official Residence (not the Embassy) of the British Ambassador in Almaty, then the capital of Kazakhstan.

The new King is 73, and will be 74 in November.

As for the next generation, I once described Princes William and Harry as “tame thick princelings“, signed up to what people now call a “woke” agenda, and I see no reason, several years on, to change that view.

The late Queen was an anchoring presence, not only in what she did but in what she was.

Without necessarily endorsing the following view, it can be said that Queen Elizabeth personified the idea that a monarch, at best, holds a nation together. Britain’s problem now is that it is rapidly ceasing to actually be a nation. It is more like a geographical space within which reside a number of interpenetrating racial, national, social and economic, and ideological, tribes, many of which dislike, or even despise and hate, each other.

“Sweet Thames”

I saw this very worthy historical blog and travelogue about the Thames, “that silver thread that runs through England’s history” as someone may have called it (Churchill called it “the golden thread through our nation’s tapestry“): https://thames.me.uk/Thames1891.htm.

Interesting, I think, not only for those who, like me, spent some of their young teenage years rowing on it.

“Professor” Uju Anya? What is wrong in American academia that a ridiculous monkey like that gets and/or keeps such a position?

In fact, she is an associate professor: https://www.cmu.edu/dietrich/modlang/about-us/filter/faculty/uju-anya.html

Another useless and malicious idiot, hostile to European culture and civilization (without which he would be living in a mud hut).

I believe in free speech, but I do not believe that such a person as this Uju Anya idiot should anyway be taken seriously enough to hold an academic post at a well-known American university.

American academia is very sick, largely because of this sort of nonsense. The usual suspects (((them))) are behind much of it, pulling the strings. The black “academics” (usually retailing pseudo-academic nonsense) are, to a great extent, just the puppets.

Unless America can recover its ethnic white European identity, it is doomed. There needs to be a reset of the white/non-white population-proportion in the USA, getting back to the ~90% white America of the 1920s.

Apart from which, there are times when a decent reserve is the right persona, and when nasty and tasteless jeering is not the right persona.

For me, the main point is that the tasteless minority pretending to celebrate the death of the late Queen (and a few even hoping, on Twitter etc, that that death was painful) are not only celebrating the death of Elizabeth II, but are also —and in fact primarily— making a truly evil attack on the British people, on our history, on our now-disappeared Empire, on our culture, on our (and all European) culture, and on the overall European way of life. That is why they should all be deported, exiled, or eliminated.

…and despite that, Jew-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his deputy, thick-as-two-short-planks Angela Rayner went down on their knees in fealty to the “BLM” “Black Lives Matter” idiocy, as did many others, including members of this country’s police, while on duty at that.

That, of course, was before the transnational conspiracy put up other idols for the unthinking to worship: first the “Covid” “panicdemic”/”scamdemic”, and now the present nonsense about Britain’s (non-existent) “need” to “support” the Jew dictator Zelensky and his corrupt and antidemocratic cabal in Ukraine.

The tweets and retweets of the tweeter @DwayneDavidPaul (click below) are instructive. Monkeys like that can only just about live, parasitically, in a civilized society or culture; they could never create one, not in a million years:

Look at said monkey’s Twitter profile: “educator • policy advocate • writer • zealot | director, @CCFJHartford, contributor, @NCRonline; @YaleDivSchool alumnus.”

That last is “Yale Divinity School”!

‘Nuff said?

Ukraine

The limited Kiev-regime counter-offensive in the south of Ukraine (Kherson area) was joined by another limited counter-offensive in the north-east, in the Kharkov area. Now, however, Russian missile strikes have hit a number of cities.

If accurate (the tweeters plainly both being pro the Kiev regime), the tweet immediately below shows a situation not good for the Russian side:

As for the tweet immediately below here, its judgment would be more convincing had the Kiev regime not been shelling and rocketing the population of parts of the Donbass for about 8 years…

If Russian forces are seriously pushed back on a consistent basis, and if the outcome of this war is in the balance, we can expect to see a massive escalation of force from the Russian side.

I was unaware of that (that it was in Hitchens’ book).

I blogged about that situation nearly 4 years ago, but it has now progressed (degenerated) to a point of utter ludicrousness: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

As blogged many times, Ukraine is a new-ish state (1990s), a failed state, and a shambolic kleptocracy run by a pack of Jew billionaires (like Zelensky, who owns several luxury homes including one in Florida worth USD $40 million).

The Zelensky regime shoots its opponents both in secret and in the street, has banned opposition parties, banned trade unions, and arrested prominent opposition politicians.

Liz Truss wants to waste many billions more of UK taxpayers’ money on the criminal Kiev regime, as did “Boris”-idiot.

Yes. One feels the “calm before the storm”…

Tweets and thoughts about Russia, Ukraine, and NATO expansion since the 1990s

I remember Bill Bradley from when I lived in New Jersey in the early 1990s. One of those “best President (or Prime Minister) who never made it” figures, like (in the UK) Rab Butler, Enoch Powell etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Bradley.

On the main question here, the Russia-Ukraine situation, we see above a number of figures from, inter alia, the U.S. State Department, the CIA, the British Foreign Office, not to mention the American, Australian and other political establishments, all warning against NATO expansionism and against stoking Ukrainian political and military aggressiveness.

Few of those political and diplomatic figures can be, plausibly, written off as “Russian shills” and the like, as we see all too often written on Twitter and elsewhere, as the unthinking “I stand with Ukraine” mob bay for anything up to and even including nuclear war with Russia.

The disastrous policy of actively supporting the Jew-Zionist kleptocracy in Kiev headed (or figureheaded) by Zelensky is bad enough in itself (and is soon going to result in recession and/or stagflation in the UK and the EU) but, worse than that, may develop into a military situation between NATO and Russia which may then slip or slide into a nuclear conflict which would devastate the UK, much of Europe, the industrialized parts of Russia, and the cities of the USA.

I may not like moneygrubbing expenses cheat and Bilderberger, Ed Balls, and the same goes (double) for his venal, hypocritical, “refugees welcome” (but not in her own several homes) wife, Yvette Cooper, but it has to be said that Balls is a trained economist, and did criticize at the time the ludicrously wrongheaded “austerity” nonsense put forward by the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne from 2010-2015, a policy which has run Britain threadbare.

Ukrainian “refugees”

I recently posted on the blog this Daily Mail account from a no doubt well-meaning Jewish woman in the UK who signed up for the Government scheme to host Ukrainian “refugees”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11182855/Why-Im-glad-Ukrainian-refugee.html.

A salutary tale, and one which I have just reread, this time also reading many of the readers’ comments. Some had had similar experiences.

I was reminded, reading all that, of an experience of my own.

Over twenty years ago (how time flies in this world when one is no longer young), I was invited, with my wife, to the wedding of a friend, and former teacher at a language school where I had been a part-time student in the early 1980s.

I have mentioned Ig [Ignat] Avsey a couple of times in the past on this blog. https://www.theguardian.com/education/2013/dec/09/ignat-avsey-obituary

I had become very friendly in the late 1980s and early 1990s with Ig, a noted translator of Dostoyevsky; Ig was divorced (from decades before) and lived in a detached house in North Finchley (London outskirts).

Ig worked at a language school near Warren Street, in Central London, an institute where most of the Russian-language faculty were exiles of one sort or another. He himself had been born in Latvia between the world wars; when he was 14, his family fled to Germany, at the end of WW2, and as the Red Army advanced from the East. They had then settled in the UK.

I sometimes enjoyed a drink, and occasionally a curry in Drummond Street (also near Warren Street), with Ig and one or other of his friends, such as “Uncle John”, a divorced fellow whose wife, Alla from Leningrad, was another language teacher of mine at one time, or with Guy Churchill, a pleasant retiree and one-time SAS soldier (during the Malayan Emergency of the 1950s), who had the odd habit (never seen before or since) of breaking the filter tips off his cigarettes before smoking them.

Ig was rather eccentric, and sometimes did things which were very surreal, as when he took me, for no obvious reason, to have tea with the writer, Doris Lessing [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doris_Lessing], at a cafe-bar near the language school. A strange, awkward, rather Kafkaesque experience.

It never occurred to me that Ig, not far off retirement age, might remarry and so compromise his bachelor life of Russo-Soviet culture, beer, and collecting railway clocks (several were in the main room of his house). I was therefore surprised to be invited to his wedding, at a Register Office somewhere on the extension of Edgware Road, far up that road, maybe near Brent Cross (I cannot now exactly recall).

My wife and I attended the short ceremony, and met the bride. She was Russian but had been resident in Latvia, where Ig had met her (not sure where or how; possibly at a bus stop or the like). She was supposedly mid-twenties (my wife thought older), and looked a bit lost amid Ig’s rather grey-haired friends, who included a couple of occasional teachers of mine at that language school, one being a one-time Army linguist (and keeper of goats), another being Gerald Brooke, who had spent 4 years in prison near Moscow before being swapped for the Krogers: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Brooke; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Cohen_(spy); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lona_Cohen.

That was the wedding. Some time later, Ig asked me to take his new wife to lunch at Lincoln’s Inn. She was friendly, pleasant, and told me that she had a law degree from Latvia, maybe Riga.

Scroll forward. My wife and I took on the lease of a large country house, one of the largest in North Cornwall.

We invited Ig and his wife to stay for the weekend. They arrived, but right from the start there was something wrong. For one thing, in a cold autumn, Ig’s wife came in a short dress, no coat, no gloves, perhaps unaware of how cold a large English country house can be, despite large fuel bills (one January, I spent nearly £700 on oil alone; plus coal and firewood. £700, in one month, 20 years ago).

Ig’s wife was actually quite rude from the start, not at all friendly to my wife, treated her like a serf, did not offer any help or whatever (we had the big house, but not any domestic staff as such), and just seemed to be sulking constantly. We assumed that the ill-matched couple had had a spat on the way down.

Anyway, after a weekend which —without going into great detail— tested my wife’s patience to the hilt, and when the pair were almost ready to go home, my wife thought to leave a small gift in the other woman’s suitcase, only to find that the latter had actually stolen a silk scarf and other items and placed them in her case. They were silently removed.

After that, I received calls from Ig’s Russian friends, begging me to think of a way to “save him from that stupid girl, who knows nothing but films and fashion“. In fact, Ig did try to divorce her, after he overheard her talking to her mother in Riga, and the pair plotting to divorce him and so get half of his quite valuable house.

Ig was later prevailed upon to change his mind, and they seem to have remained married until his death some 11 years later. I hope that she was not unkind to Ig in his last years, because he was a good fellow, but I never saw him after the disastrous weekend, and only spoke to him a couple of times when (maybe at her instigation) he wanted to bring her down again to Cornwall. I could not put my wife through that, though.

I presume that that woman got his house worth (in 2013) about £800,000 (I suppose worth twice that much now), and other financial benefits.

However, not all Russians, Ukrainians etc can be tarred with the same brush. For example, I knew one girl (from Kiev) who was offered marriage by a British diplomat (who became an ambassador only about 2 years later) but refused him.

Many Russians (and, no doubt, Ukrainians too) are very fine people, but they come from a very different cultural and social background than English people. History has been harsh in those regions, and attitudes are fashioned out of such history.

Liz Truss Cabinet

Mirabile dictu! I agree with James O’Brien on something…

The main surprise is that Nadine Dorries is not there, it being rumoured that she is about to be elevated to the Lords. Well, why not? After all, a woman (Michelle Mone) who faked a “success story” about her insolvent bra company is there, as are several absurd black women, one of whom is only there because her son was killed in a scuffle with white yobs at a bus stop. Just a few examples of the deadheads in the House of Lords (Oona King is another one).

I was just looking at the new Cabinet: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-62796077. Jesus Christ…

Incidentally, the blog has had thousands of hits in the past few days, one of the most popular posts being my 2019 (with updates since then) assessment of the new Health Secretary, Therese Coffey: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

In principle, correct, but there is no mechanism, as we have seen in recent years, for the public to be able to dispense with even the most ridiculous Prime Minister, until given an opportunity at a general election.

Another humiliation for Britain, having this ridiculous creature as Foreign Secretary, complete with his “degree” in Hospitality Management from West London Poly.

Like several other Conservative Party MPs, Cleverly started a company when he was trying to launch a political career, so that it would look good on his CV. A number of such companies are more or less fakes, designed to pad out otherwise unimpressive CVs. In Cleverly’s case, his company turned over less than £551 in 2008, its supposed first full year of operation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly#Early_life_and_education. Its net assets were around £1,000: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/06424833/filing-history.

In fact, apart from a couple of years as a sales manager, Cleverly seems not to have had a job for much of his life, unless you include his Territorial Army officer activity. He was never commissioned into the Regular Army, by reason of a supposed leg injury (unspecified); nor is it known whether he dropped out of Sandhurst or other training institution.

A couple more bits of news about the new Cabinet

That little pissant Robert Jenrick, a total puppet of the Jew-Zionist/Israel lobby, has been appointed a Minister of State despite his very “questionable” links to Jew property speculators.

Jewish wife; children brought up as if full-Jew. Completely in the Zionist pocket.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/sep/07/robert-jenrick-and-steve-baker-return-to-frontbench-as-ministers-of-state.

Sacked as a Secretary of State previously, so in effect a demotion.

The other news is that ex-officer Johnny Mercer, who seemed like a rare breath of fresh air in the Commons at first (but who, disappointingly, turned out to be a moneygrubber, at least from what I have read), has been kicked out of Government, and his wife, seeing the extra salary etc disappearing up the chimney, is livid.

I suppose that Mercer was hoping against hope to be appointed at some later stage as Defence Secretary, though his “bring it on!” rhetoric about nuclear war with Russia hardly inspired confidence in his judgment.

As for Mercer’s wife, Felicity, of whom I knew nothing until today, I award her 9 out of 10 for honesty, 1 out of 10 for diplomacy, and another 9 out of 10 for making my day more amusing.

You see that sort of thing all the time on Twitter— a cavalcade of talking heads, supposed “comedians”, sports talking heads etc, all paying lip-service to the BBC which, in most cases, pays them. Sickening homage to patronage.

Look at that Sweet bastard (whoever he is). Begging for state censorship.

Louise Mensch. A blast from the past, now just a washed-up, divorced Twitter twit who (after I was wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred in 2016, actually tweeted directly to me, threatening (ignorantly) to have me disbarred in New York as well. Never heard anything more about it.

Louise Mensch was, inter alia, a drug abuser, and admitted that her drug abuse “messed up her head“. A rock “music” “groupie” at one time long ago (when at University), who became, at least metaphorically, an Israel- lobby “groupie” later.

Politically, completely irrelevant.
