“Excess deaths”

Well worth watching.

A combination of the crazy “lockdown” “strategy”, and the dangerous and untested “vaccine”(s); the facemask nonsense too.

New book

Happened to see, on Sky News, the Chief Economics Correspondent of the Financial Times, a Jew called Wolf (I missed the first name), who has a book out about capitalism and democracy. It sounded interesting, from what he was saying.

The presenter somehow managed to bring in “holocaust” “denial” (historical revision), though the author did not seem to want to dwell on that. I wonder how many people were thinking “how is the present state of the world and Europe the fault of so-called holocaust deniers?“; I certainly was.

Load up“…

The System would rather people freeze to death or die from hypothermia than burn the “wrong” sort of fuel.

The present world culture, based on Europe and on European implants elsewhere (USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, much of South America etc), is dying, not with a bang but with a prolonged whimper. Indeed, it may be that only a bang, or a series of bangs, will save us from annihilation as a culture, and as white European people(s).

OK…

Another one who is far from “poor” or “struggling“, of course.

Seems that today’s “Jack Monroe” distraction tactic is “what is your favourite pasta dish?“. In the language of the 1950s, “don’t the mugs ever twig?“— seems not, though her Patreon “grift” is ebbing away: months ago, 800+ mugs were sending her money monthly, after Jewish TV cook Nigella Lawson promoted her; that number reduced to 636 after her dishonesty etc was exposed to the light more, then 522 (yesterday). Today— 495.

Her lying is truly pathological, it seems.

I repeat, do the mugs really believe her nonsense?

Still clapping?

For once, I can agree with Piers Morgan.

Take away the fake titles from them, at least. She is a mulatta, who was previously married to a Californian Jew business parasite; “Harry” is as thick as two short planks, and mentally unstable. Both hate Europe’s peoples. Reduce their pretensions to rubble.

Constitutionally moot, but I take that tweeter’s point.

I assessed Therese Coffey a few years ago. I think that my assessment has held up pretty well: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

The “role of Government” changes along with circumstances, or should do.

I do not know what I despise more about Therese Coffey— her callousness, or her stupidity (read my assessment above); perhaps even more than those, her sense of (completely unmerited) entitlement.

[Therese Coffey at play; such are the blots on humanity presently thought worthy to rule over the UK]

As Lenin said, “a revolution without firing squads is not worth much“.

Labour has no real answers to Britain’s problems, but this present government is just so useless that it would take a miracle to save it, looking at its deadhead ministers, about which the public is surely now fully aware.

In my opinion, using that situation (assuming that it is true) to deflect questions about the money she is alleged to have taken from vulnerable people, and in return for basically nothing. “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” has already tweeted (in order to fill up her Twitter timeline with supportive messages) about 1. polishing a copper kettle, and 2. her new hairstyle.

It seems to me that the “Bootstrap Cook” has been dropped by most of the msm now, but wants to hang on to those (as of today) 641 Patreon mugs, all paying her between £3.50 and £44 a month, every month.

The puzzle is why the mugs do it, now that the facts are becoming better-known.

I myself have no idea whether “Jack Monroe” is so mentally disturbed that she scarcely knows the truth from untruth, or whether she is consciously “pushing the envelope” quite often, and actually mocking her “patron”-mugs by making up ever-more outrageous untruths; examples would include pretending to have been involved in investigating the Grenfell Tower fire, and boiling down soap to make shower gel and so (supposedly) save money.

Prosecutors said those detained formed a ‘terrorist organization with the goal of overturning the existing state order in Germany and replace [sic] it with their own form of state, which was already in the course of being founded.’

The suspects were aware that their aim could only be achieved by military means and with force, prosecutors added.

Some of the group’s members had made ‘concrete preparations’ to storm Parliament with a small armed group, the prosecutors said.

The idea, put about by well-publicized “enablers”, that a person can be fed on about £5 a week, is just nonsense. Even leaving aside the need for a balanced diet, with many vitamins and minerals, a pack of cheapest pasta is (I think) about £1, which might last someone a couple of days. The cheapest sauce would be at least £1, even if you made it last a week. That leaves £3 for everything else. Bread for a week must cost £1 if not £2. What else could you get? A jar of peanut butter? A pack of cheap butter? A couple of pints of milk? A couple of bunches of bananas?

I have posted previously a pretty hard time I myself had in early-mid 1998, after I returned from living for a few months in Egypt: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/08/25/diary-blog-25-august-2022-with-a-few-thoughts-about-poverty-and-living-through-hard-times/.

A mixture of comedy and tragedy, perhaps.

While having little income (at first no income at all), I had to find food for myself while also finding a new contract (job), while somehow travelling around London (mainly to the City of London from Holland Park “borders”, near Shepherd’s Bush). I have to admit that it was hard going and, without being too detailed, I concede that I did “cut a few corners” here and there. Needs must…

Ironically, the contrary might be the case, if it means that the Border Force (or Border Farce) take a break from “rescuing” (ferrying to the UK) the migrant-invaders in the Channel. Assuming that the weather becomes more stormy.

True, but private soldiers and junior NCOs do get or can get free or subsidized accommodation, food, transport etc (unless that has changed; I believe that it was the case, anyway).

Weird LGBTQXYZ types buying babies for some kind of vanity, or from crazed wish-fulfilment motives. Has to be wrong.

A great part of the problem in the “West” is that those very pillars of liberty under law have been eroded, largely by the embedded Jew-Zionist element. It may be objected that other elements are also involved, and guilty, and that I do not deny, but the main rot in the whole system is the Jewish-Zionist element.

A Jew-Zionist dictator, whose government is admitted by its own spokesmen to be “80% Jewish“. A dictatorship that has closed down opposition parties, imprisoned or killed dissidents, closed down trade unions, and attacked Russian civilians in the Donbass for 8 years. The Jew Zelensky also has several opulent villas in the West, including one valued at USD $40 million in Florida. A complete puppet of the NWO.

Ukraine

The “hypocrite of the year” award must go to U.S. President Biden, on behalf of the American military and intelligence hierarchy, after Biden’s comment that Russian attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure were “brutal“: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63208897.

It seems that semi-demented Biden has forgotten the US bombings of, inter alia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Serbia, North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and North Korea, not to mention the annihilation of whole cities in the Second World War, mainly but not only in Japan and Germany.

[Unter den Linden, Berlin, 1945]

The American governments of the past 80 years have killed untold millions.

Tweets about the Ukraine situation, seen overnight:

My view has been that the Russians fluffed what could and should have been a swift and unstoppable coup de main in February 2022. The Russian General Staff, GRU, and large parts of the Russian Army were shown to be incompetent, while their allies (Chechens mainly) were again proven to be brutal and out of control.

Also, the Russian side was unable to win or even seriously compete in the information and propaganda war. The “Ukrainian” (Jew-Zionist, mainly) side have had 8 months of uncritical support from the “Western” msm, even down to the extent that Kiev is no longer referred to as “Kiev” on “Western” TV or radio, but (e.g. on the BBC) as “Keev” (written version being “Kyiv“).

I had assumed that the Russian plan, once their absurdly half-hearted initial “invasion” stalled, would be to seize the Black Sea and Sea of Azov littoral as far inland as possible (which they have largely done, though stopping far short of the Odessa region), and to press up the eastern side of the Dnieper to some point southeast of Kiev, while also expanding west from Kharkov and advancing north from the Donbass, all three advances meeting southeast of Kiev, and so not only occupying most of eastern Ukraine but also laying the ground for a serious advance on Kiev from south, east and north.

If the above was the Russian plan, it now lies in tatters. The Kiev regime side, pumped up with Western weaponry and money, has advanced, and the Russian side withdrawn. The forces of the Kiev regime, having taken towns occupied previously by Russian forces, have executed civilians known to be pro-Russia and/or anti-war.

The recent attacks on the Nordstream2 pipeline and the Kerch Bridge (and an airfield in Kaluga region) betoken a serious escalation by the Western/NATO/NWO/Kiev side.

In the contemporary phrase, though, “we are where we are”. So where now?

We have just now seen Russian attacks mainly directed at electrical-generation and heating plants. These mark a change in strategy.

It seems that the Russian strategy as it now stands is to weaken the morale of the —so far largely untouched— populations in the large Ukrainian cities under control of the Kiev regime— Lvov, Odessa, Kharkov, and Kiev itself, among others.

I think that Putin was holding back from a really large-scale targeting of the Ukrainian population in order to leave the door open for negotiation, but the Jew Zelensky has recently made it clear that no negotiation will happen while Putin remains in place; also, that sovereignty over the Donbass, Crimea etc is non-negotiable. An “ultra” position, if you like.

That leaves only continuing war as a likelihood.

Winter is coming. Without heating or electricity, the living conditions of the Ukrainian civilian population may become dire. War is cruel, especially this type of attritional war.

The Zelensky regime continues to exist only by reason of the tens or hundreds of billions of US dollars (and devalued UK pounds) being funnelled to Zelensky’s apparat, together with advanced weaponry.

The Russian strategy is not so much one of weakening Ukraine economically. The Ukrainian economy is dead or dormant anyway. It is a question of sapping the civilian (and so also the military) morale until the moment is ripe to launch a killer blow, meaning either a larger-scale invasion directed mainly at Kiev, or the use of tactical nuclear weapons to literally blow Zelensky off his perch.

Positionally, the Belarus situation is interesting. Kiev is little more than 60 miles from the border with Belarus.

If the Russian forces can take Kiev at some point, the war will have reached a tipping-point both strategically and in terms of morale etc. The Zelensky regime will have been decapitated in terms of geography, and the Kiev-regime forces in eastern Ukraine cut off.

Truss and Kwarteng to destroy public services

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/oct/11/unfunded-tax-cuts-mean-uk-will-need-60bn-spending-cuts

Even for someone as cynical as I am about the UK’s totally broken pseudo-democratic system, the idea that the people of Britain can be put through such pain because a stupid woman who only became an MP in the first place on her back is “Prime Minister”, is unbelievable. Especially since said “ho” is only Prime Minister (in name) because 80,000 mostly elderly and comfortably-off Conservative Party members voted for her; even so, the vote was close. If Indian “clever boy” Sunak had not cheated the pensioners last year by suspending the “triple lock” on State Pensions, he would have clinched it.

As for Old Etonian woolly-head, Kwarteng, he takes the price of so-called “diversity” to a whole new level.

Short of a “grassy knoll” situation, how can this crazed dim woman and her cronies be removed?

I read that there are moves afoot to change the rules for removal of a Conservative Party leader, to shorten the 12-month time limit. That will take months, if it happens at all.

Alternatively, if Con Party MPs refuse to vote for Government measures, Truss might have to resign, but “have to” is not quite what it seems. She might simply dig in. I read her as the type of careerist, self-publicizing woman who will hang on as long as possible to the office, the pay, the perks, and the fact of being simply being the number one figure, even if powerless and widely despised.

One thing is for sure, the Conservative Party is toast from now on, unless it can find a semi-presentable leader by —at latest— Christmas 2023.

I think that abstention or protest voting will be more likely than a huge move by people to Labour. The huge opinion poll leads now being seen may persist, in our rigged binary system.

The UKIP debacle of 2015 (12% of votes but no seats) has put off many dissident conservative-“nationalist” voters, and the treachery of Farage in 2019 re. his Brexit Party has surely finished off that “Conservative Plus Plus” populism, at least in any significant way.

As we know, what matters, usually, is what happens in a few dozen very marginal seats. That is where the Conservative Party’s main weakness lies. Seats such as those former “Red Wall” constituencies “up North”.

I am sure that the old “Red Wall” can never be put back together, by reason of societal changes. Instead of the “proletariat”— miners, dockers, railway workers, steelworkers— you have call centre workers, retail workers etc, the “precariat”. Volatile voters, who might vote Labour one year, Conservative the next, and (?) UKIP, Brexit Party (or whatever) the year after that.

Still, the former “Red Wall”, which voted Con in 2019, will probably swing back to Labour, if only in the short term, meaning in 2023/2024. That alone is enough to cook the Conservative goose.

If the Conservative Party continues at 20%-25% in the polls, then it will not win any marginal seats, and will almost certainly lose seats not usually marginal.

Much depends on what happens to people’s lifestyles between now and the end of 2024, the last time when a general election can be held. If the Conservative MPs cannot hold the Truss feet to the fire in a major way, Conservative Party support may “trickle down” the drain even further…

Sadly, there is no social national party to engage with the people. The little joke-parties, such as For Britain and Britain First, have disappeared from view, and recent by-elections have been embarrassing for the few sort-of social-national candidates (eg Jayda Fransen) who have tried to put themselves forward. Indeed, the mere fact that I have even bothered to mention Jayda Fransen etc shows how empty the social-national space is in the UK.

That is my view too. If the Scottish people want to be nominally “independent” (if that means anything when Scotland would still be part of NATO, a reconnected EU, and the international banking system), then fine, just go (and with my genuine blessings), but in that event Scotland will almost certainly have to accept far lower living standards. Fact.

In fact, it seems to be that many Scots want, not “independence” but simply greater autonomy, meaning freedom from Westminster. See, below, the latest YouGov poll re. retaining the Monarchy:

Evenly divided. In a sense, that poll surprises me; I should have expected at least a small majority to be hostile to the idea of retaining the Monarchy.

SNP support is still at or below 50%:

That probably puts support for “independence” even lower, maybe (at an educated guess) around 45%.

An even more “autonomous” Scotland than exists at present would probably reduce the pro-Independence figure lower still.

If Scotland has even more autonomy, though, it cannot expect to retain funding on an overly-generous scale from the UK as a whole.

You can easily guess which (((element))) is behind much of it.

Piers Morgan might be called just an idiot (after all, he is an uneducated and uncultured man— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piers_Morgan), but at the same time he is a chosen —or should that be “chosen by the (((chosen)))”— System mouthpiece on the msm.

People such as Morgan are pushing the idea that “Ukraine” (Kiev regime) can “win” this war. How? By NATO etc giving Zelensky long-range weapons with which to hit Moscow and Petersburg? Does Morgan himself really believe that Russia will just sit still if Kiev-regime forces capture all of the Donbass (and also Crimea, where 95% of the population is Russian)? The slaughter and terror likely to be inflicted on the Russian and also pro-Russian Ukrainian populations by the Kiev regime would be terrible.

Strange, I did not see or hear Morgan oppose the large-scale bombings (and huge civilian casualties) in Afghanistan and Iraq by American and UK forces. Maybe not so strange— Morgan’s brother is or was an Army officer of field rank, who served in at least one of those theatres; possibly both.

Reverting to the idea that Ukraine can “win”, what would that look like?

Let us say that Russia withdraws all forces from Crimea (Russian territory since the time of Peter the Great —and before then Tatar/Turkic— with the exception of the decades since 1953);

Let us say that Russia withdraws from the Donbass etc. What then?

Then Ukraine (Kiev regime) would be built up by NATO with huge new weapons influxes, possibly even tactical nuclear. Russia would be forced to agree “reparations” with Kiev (with NATO standing behind) and, down the line, Russia would be forced into a position of subservience to (((Western))) interests even worse than happened under Yeltsin in the 1990s. Russia was on its knees then. I saw it myself.

The more I look at it, the more I think it quite likely that Russia and the Western powers (NWO) will eventually end up in a strategic nuclear exchange that will change all of our lives irretrievably. If so, a large part of the blame and guilt will rest with a warmongering Western msm; people such as Piers Morgan. He may eventually reflect on that, if it happens and if he survives.

I see from his Wikipedia entry that Morgan has his main base not in the UK but in Los Angeles, though he has properties in both London and Sussex as well; maybe elsewhere too.

We are in the midst of a gigantic propaganda campaign, and it is certainly not a Russian one. The Russians, though, have made it easy for the Ukrainian regime (in fact, the New World Order conspiracy); the hamfisted and now brutal Russian attacks have reinforced the anti-Russian propaganda being pumped out 24/7.

Ship them all back to Nigeria.

Idiots of the Piers Morgan type are basically puppets-on-a-stick, saying whatever is required of them by the people who really matter.

Piers Morgan would no doubt disbelieve his own eyes, were Russian nuclear missiles to start landing in his native Essex, and preventing him from taking half a dozen holidays a year in the Maldives, Seychelles etc.

The old Soviet Union was sometimes described as “Upper Volta with rockets”. Well, OK (though that was obvious hyperbole anyway), but the great fact was that those rockets existed. 6,200 still exist, upgraded and mostly ready to launch.

Yes, of Russia’s 6,200 missiles (and nuclear bombs), only some will successfully launch and reach their target areas. Probably half, or maybe fewer, even as few as a quarter. So about 1,500. Of which about a tenth might be aimed at UK targets. Call it 150. 150 nuclear missiles, landing in the UK, each one capable of destroying almost anything within a radius of maybe 10 miles or more. Just one, landing in Westminster, would affect directly as far out as the outer London suburbs. That leaves 149 other such missiles striking elsewhere in the UK: Portsmouth. Southampton. Every large Army base. Every airfield. Every major city and town.

Nein danke, Piers “useful idiot” Morgan.

Seems that some people need to be reminded of a few facts:

#Ukraine has only been an independent state for 31 years;

#Prior to 1991, Ukraine was merely part of the Soviet Union and, before that, of the Russian Empire, stretching back for hundreds of years;

#Ukraine is a corrupt and shambolic state run by a profoundly undemocratic Jewish cabal;

#The UK has no alliance with Ukraine, no military treaty, and no obligation under international law to funnel arms to its illegitimate rulers;

#Sending arms to Ukraine only prolongs its agony.

Nearest town square. Firing squad. End.

Please refer to my earlier comment.

I do not generally approve of the death penalty. I however distinguish between that and what amounts to a public health measure…

The sad fact is that the organs of the UK State (eg police, CPS, MI5/MI6 etc), and the institutions of society, to a large extent, now work against the interests of the British people. Wilfully so.

Ukraine

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Historical note

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

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

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

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

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

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

The future of Russia and the future of Europe lies with Aryans, or rather post-Aryans, and with a super-race which does not yet exist.

Long live, er, freedom…

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

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

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

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

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

Migration invasion continues

On Thursday 559 people were picked up off the Kent coast after making the crossing in 19 boats, and on Friday 358 people crossed in 10 boats.” [BBC News]

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-59710100

900 more in 2 days!

Picked up off the Kent coast“…Oh yes? How far “off” the coast would that be? 10 miles? More?

Soon, even poor weather will not hamper the invasion, as larger rubber boats and RIBs are used. Even now, it can be seen that about 30 are arriving on each boat.

The 900 that arrived on Thursday and Friday will now “have to be” found accommodation, food, spending money, NHS medical care, other services, and few of them will ever be more than a burden to the British people.

What about the past two days, Saturday and Sunday? The same? Another 900?

I do not even need to bet (because I know) that the same quasi-traitors who support the migration-invasion are the same virtue-signalling hypocrites who will soon be crying about how the NHS is “under-resourced”, about how the police are “under-resourced”, about how there is a worsening housing crisis in the UK; and so on.

Quite right. I can recall, almost every year for decades (literally decades, about 25 years), the NHS having a “winter crisis”. Long before “Covid”.

The “panicdemic” is not only convenient as a way of introducing a police state under another guise; it is also convenient for the very poorly-administered NHS. It supplies a narrative: “we are swamped by Covid!” OK, so that’s your excuse in 2021 and for 2020. So, er, what was the reason the NHS was “in crisis” for almost all of the preceding 25 winters?

Not that I am opposed to the NHS, meaning public healthcare free at point of use. I heard secondhand a (thought credible) story about a lady somewhere (I forget where exactly) in the USA, who developed, many years ago, a serious problem with hearing (and had had a problem since birth) and, because her health insurance, which she actually had, would not cover it, had been extremely restricted in her enjoyment of life. For years.

It seems that that lady was finally able to get the (actually pathetically small) amount of money required recently, but how sad that, for lack of a very small amount of money (less than £3,000 in UK money), she was so handicapped for many years.

No-one sensible wants to replace the existing health services with a “pay or die” system. However, something needs to change.

The principle of the NHS is good, but the NHS lost its way sometime in the Blair-Brown years, 10-20 years ago. Maladministration. Callousness. Lack of proper direction.

The migration invasion has made matters much worse.

Answer: because the part-Jew, part-Levantine clown and public entertainer who should be “running the country” is incapable of doing so, and should never have risen higher than backbench MP level, if that.

is it becuz Claudia Webbe is black, a woman, and an MP?” Answers on a postcard…and then you see agonized articles in the New Statesman, or Guardian, speculating as to why people will still not vote “Labour” even now that “nasty uncle Adolf” (Corbyn) has been replaced by nice safe (it is claimed) Keir Starmer.

Starmer is not a “supporter of terrorism” (except Israeli state terrorism”, and the kind of Jewish sub-terrorism that we have seen in the UK in the past); likewise, Starmer is not “an anti-Semite”…I have no doubt that that is so! Good grief, he even has a Jewish wife, and children being brought up as if fully-Jewish!

Seems, however, that that sort of claim cuts little mustard with the voting public. True, the opinion polls now show “Labour” ahead of the equally-misnamed “Conservatives”, but then look at this shambles of a government!

The word “omnishambles” could have been coined for this mis-government. Indeed, the word is not even strong enough.

Yes.

I have reposted a few tweets with which I agree, but it is disturbing that someone apparently at a “leading university” can compose a sentence such as “twitters self proclaimed education correspondent” without an apostrophe or a hyphen in sight. Sign of the times.

Labour

I have already made a few comments today, and yesterday, and the day before, about the Labour Party. The fact is that those opinion polls are only favourable to Labour by default. The North Shropshire result cannot just be ignored on the argument that “…because Labour never wins there“.

Even taking into account tactical voting (which obviously took place), the North Shropshire result was very poor for Labour. For one thing, why was Labour not the chosen tactical vote recipient? Why the LibDems? In the past, even in the last (2019) election for the seat, in fact in the last three elections (2019, 2017, 2015), Labour, not the LibDems, came in in second place.

Indeed, the LibDems have only come second in the constituency twice, in 2010 and in 1992. In all others, in third place, often a distant third.

The LibDem vote in North Shropshire was only 10% in 2019, and even lower (5.3%) in 2017. In fact, even in the 2010 days of “Cleggmania”, the LibDem vote only reached 20.9% (with Labour on 18.1%).

The sheer ineptitude of the Boris Johnson misgovernment is obviously a factor, going beyond even that of previous Conservative and Labour governments but, even so, something more is going on here. Labour has lost not only credibility, but relevance, raison d’etre.

There is no “industrial proletariat”, just an increasingly raceless (in the cities) and cultureless “precariat”. “Labour”-label speaks for (or at least to) mainly those with public sector jobs, to the blacks (those that even bother to vote) and to some of the “browns”, esp. Pakistanis etc. Not really to any other group of any size.

The Labour MPs are largely seen as useless. Some of the black women are especially poor, but they are not alone. A significant number of Labour MPs have been convicted, arrested, or suspended in the past year alone.

It is always hard to predict a General Election in the UK, bearing in mind the crazy First Past The Post voting system, and the contrived boundaries of constituencies, but to my mind we are heading into hung Parliament territory again. That nearly happened (again) in 2019, but Labour’s collapsed vote (a collapse of 8 points) enabled the Conservative Party (the vote of which increased by 1 point) to get an 80-seat majority.

If, next time, the Labour vote collapses further, but the Conservative vote also falls, the LibDems may manage to pick up a number of Conservative seats. Maybe…but with the Conservatives still left holding, probably, a plurality of seats.

I would not totally write off the Conservative Party just yet, poor though the “Conservatives” are, if Boris-idiot is binned. There is still a lot of traditional, ingrained, support for the Conservatives, especially in rural and southern England, whereas in the traditionally Labour areas, support for Labour has ebbed away, or eroded. I cannot see Keir Starmer and his Labour Friends of Israel front bench reversing that trend.

“Boris” is now a dead weight for the Conservative Party. If he is removed, the party, poor though it is, must be a match for equally-poor Labour.

The “Covid” “laws”, “rules”, “measures” and general nonsense have also weakened support for Con Party (and for Labour, which has weakly followed and supported the Conservative Government).

As for the LibDems, few vote for them, as such. People are voting against the major System parties.

My view since the days of the Con Coalition of 2010-2015, that the LibDems are finished, still holds, despite Amersham, despite North Shropshire. The only question is when the last LibDem MP will go, and that will not happen while the Conservative Party is as toxic as it now is, because the LibDems will be there as “alternative”, particularly where Labour is sliding and/or has no chance.

This should be a good moment for social-nationalism, but there is no social-national party, and no real movement.

The superficially-educated ignorant

Watched an episode of The Chase from a few years ago. Probably the worst team I have seen. One woman seemed to know nothing at all, literally nothing (except how to walk and speak), while another, a young woman with a degree in English, and who was going to be doing a master’s degree in magazine journalism, was frighteningly ignorant for someone with at least 16 years of full-time education (and who wanted to start her own magazine!). She thought that Elizabeth I was the grandmother of Tsaritsa Alexandra of Russia (it was Victoria, as all my readers will know)! She also thought that the famously affluent Thameside village of Bray is in Sussex (it’s Berkshire). There were even worse answers from her, but I have already forgotten them.

Needless to say, that team won no money, but I was left, as I often am, concerned about the state of this country, and about the cultural-educational level of the population.

It especially concerns me that —it often seems— the least-educated young people are going either into teaching or into journalism.

There are secret cabals, often with occult bases, pursuing specific lines of attack in the msm. Only an informed investigative force can even begin to identify the culprits and deal with them.

I still wonder whether Farage got a huge offshore payoff for his treachery to his own followers during the 2019 General Election. I should not be surprised if he gets a peerage (as well) in the “Boris” resignation honours list. Claire Fox getting one must have been a kind of down-payment, or declaration of intent.

Piers Morgan— a major System mouthpiece. What a disgusting sentiment he tweeted, too, apart from being totally illogical. I suppose that one should not expect too much from a broadcaster whose education peaked with his attendance (on a journalism course) at Harlow College of Further Education, Essex.

As if GPs and A&E personnel know anything much in detail about the virus(es) or the agenda behind the vaccine(es).

For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?“…

If you just step back and look at what has happened to our society specifically in the past nearly 2 years, it is more than alarming; one could say frightening. The 2022-2055 agenda is already clearly readied by the secret cabals and ruling circles: travel restrictions, political repression, mass elimination, microchips under the skin to track and control hundreds of millions of people on both a mass and an individual basis, while at the same time tearing apart European race, culture, and way of life.

This will not be opposed, not at all effectively, by actions such as marches, vigils, letters to newspapers, tweets, blogs etc.

[I never chose it! The British people never chose it! Secretive cabals and enemies of the people chose it!]

“Panicdemic”

PROFESSOR CARL HENEGHAN: I’m a GP on the frontline, and I don’t think we’re overwhelmed with Covid” [Mail on Sunday]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10324747/PROFESSOR-CARL-HENEGHAN-Im-GP-frontline-dont-think-overwhelmed-Covid.html

The readers’ comments should give both main System parties pause.

Piers Corbyn

It is being reported that Piers Corbyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piers_Corbyn] has been arrested. At nearly 0200 last night. Why the KGB style?

This police habit, that is of relatively recent usage, of arresting fairly innocuous suspects in the middle of the night, or early in the morning (by which I mean before 0900 hrs) has become ingrained.

When I was at the practising Bar, I was asked once (around 2002) to advise in a case (a potential action against the police) involving a woman accused of having (though never charged with having) thrown a stone at a neighbour’s car following an incident connected with an ongoing local problem over limited parking space in a close.

In fact, that woman never was charged, and there was in fact no evidence that anyone had thrown a stone, nor even that the damage had been caused by a stone: the slight damage to the car may anyway have occurred by accident, without human agency.

The point is that that woman (a married mother of school-age children, and a medical secretary without previous convictions of any kind) was arrested at 0700 in her own home, at a time when she and her family were half-awake and about to have breakfast. She was taken away in front of her young daughters, and held in a police station for about 5 hours before being released without charge.

I think that there have to be placed statutory curbs on this kind of police behaviour. There are of course dangerous offenders, or fugitives, who may have to be arrested at night, and without any warning, who may be armed, or who may be planning an imminent attack of some sort. Any other kind of suspect should be arrested at a civilized hour and in a civilized way. Indeed, it was not necessary to have arrested the woman in my story at all, and I suspect that the same is true of Piers Corbyn.

It was not wrong of the person posing as PM to hold a reception or party; what was wrong was that he and his fellow clowns prevented, by law, “ordinary citizens” from doing the same. The hypocrisy, and “entitlement”, and mendacity was wrong too.

The blacks emboldened by “Black Lives Matter” nonsense

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/elderly-man-sweeping-path-sucker-22538815

An egregious example, but I believe that there is a general emboldenment of the non-Europeans and especially the blacks, triggered by the “BLM” nonsense. Not only in the USA; Britain too.

From the horse’s mouth

Professor Nathan Abrams sheds light on how Jews transformed the British entertainment industries, creating some of the most iconic characters and images of the 20th Century, including James Bond, Doctor Who, Carry On, and many others. In so doing, British Jews infused their creations with hidden Jewish themes.”

I always wondered why some TV and film series are pushed more, in the msm, than others…

Of course the absurd “James Bond” fantasy meshes with the whole WW2 and post-WW2 SOE/OSS narrative. SOE [Special Operations Executive] was in reality a shambolic mess that (even from the Allied perspective) accomplished little (and got a very high percentage of its agents and its own officers killed), but you would not believe that from the huge msm industry of books and films that has grown up around it, especially in recent years.

SOE mentored the OSS, as did SIS/MI6. SOE was disbanded with almost indecent haste once Germany was defeated, but that fatal seed of amateur SOE bungling, once planted in the OSS, carried on germinating and then thriving in the successor to OSS, the CIA.

That seed of gung-ho paramilitarism, sown in the Second World War, has in fact been responsible for most of the CIA’s debacles, from the Bay of Pigs, through Iran-Contra, to the support for and then betrayal of the Kurds; other situations too, such as arming Osama bin Laden and other fanatics in Afghanistan during the time of Soviet or pro-Soviet rule in the 1980s.

You see it in Hollywood films too, the idea that secret intelligence is largely about blazing machineguns, firefights featuring operatives capable of using martial arts and (maybe even at the same time!) flying a plane and making safe the mechanism of a nuclear bomb (etc). Not that such films are always unentertaining, but “Jason Bourne” is not so much a “secret agent” as a superhuman ninja warrior gone West.

Not all of the inferior races (or, within those races, individuals) treat animals cruelly (and our own record is far from perfect), but it is a matter of degree: the Northern European peoples, though they are at only the start of their evolutionary journey (in big-picture terms), are at least on it, whereas most of the other racial and ethnic groups in the world are either static or are regressing, so falling into decadence and evil.

Slava!

A “chimp-out” in San Francisco. Think the UK, say London, Birmingham or wherever, is any different? Think again. Once the restraints are off, this is the result. You cannot have a civilized society without a civilized population. Fact.

What many find hard to accept, or understand, is that quite a high proportion of those at or near the top of this society are actually and even wittingly servants of evil, sometimes members of evil secret groups planning to reduce the civilized people of the world (and all the peoples of the world) to decadence and destruction.

If the mob in Portland and elsewhere are not soon mown down by police, National Guard or Army, then the white people of Oregon are going to have to prove that the “Constitution” they talk about so much actually means at least something, and that their much-vaunted “right to keep and bear arms” means something more than showing off weapons to their friends and shooting empty beer bottles off fence-posts in the boonies…

So where are the “alt-Right” wastes of space in Portland and elsewhere?

In fact, where is Trump? Where is the huge machinery of U.S. government repression? Unaware? No. Complicit? Maybe…

Where are the non-antifa white people in Portland, where are all the “guns” they value so highly? A mere few would be able to clear away those untermenschen. As Dietrich Eckart said, “the rabble need to hear the rattle of machineguns…to get fear into their pants!

As I have always said, most of the “nationalist” elements, in the US and UK too, are a waste of time and space. That particularly applies to the “alt-Right” and other wastes of space.

In fact, the multikulti or cultureless items of detritus on the streets are merely an unpleasant symptom. The disease is seated elsewhere, behind the camera, behind the reporters’ notebooks. The “journalists”, editors, owners of TV stations, radio stations, newspapers, Hollywood studios. These are the ones harbouring the disease.

Note that a female “Black Lives Matter” bully shouts continually at the old lady, “PUT YOUR MASK ON, BITCH!, PUT YOUR MASK ON!“. Could the reasoning (the real reasoning) behind the facemask-wearing nonsense be made any more clear? It is a bullying of the individual, to intimidate the individual, forcing that person to conform, to do what the mob demands.

For myself, I just wish that someone had protected that old lady, and the best way of doing that would have been to shoot the mob down, starting with the black shouting in her face, then next prioritizing those cowards filming and photographing the horrible scene, followed by the shouting woman in the background. Then the rest of that mob. Then moving to those who are triggering all this by buying TV ads to support it, by reporting on it favourably, and also those bending the knee in sign of fealty or surrender to it all…

What starts on the West Coast of the USA often arrives next in the UK, after a year or two. Be warned. Be ready.

The BBC?! Ha ha! I support public service broadcasting, but the BBC trashed that years ago. The BBC now is almost akin to Soviet TV and radio. The BBC news broadcasts on TV have become unwatchable, just government propaganda lies, especially about “the virus” etc. Endless boring “interviews” on Skype with people droning on from their homes. I often wonder how many people now watch BBC News at all. Few, I think. It has become hugely boring. Not that that matters much to BBC staff who, like their 1980s Soviet counterparts are hugely overpaid for not rocking the boat…Meanwhile, the public is forced to pay for it all.

It will end in tears, with BBC staff forced to clean the pavements with their toothbrushes.

When things really (to use the contemporary phrase) “kick off” in the USA, UK, across mainland Europe, those who think that they can control the agenda and events because they —now— gang up on and denounce people to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, the police etc, will find no hiding place themselves. Their Lilliputian binding ties will no longer protect them.

Britain and inventors

Saw this:

Britain in the 20th and 21st centuries has not much honoured its inventors. Sir Christopher Cockerell belatedly got a knighthood (surely the most devalued honour?) and a prize of £5,000 (worth ?£500,000 today) in the late 1960s for inventing the hovercraft.

How sad that hovercraft are now built in places like China, but not, as far as I know, the UK, where they were invented and also first built and first used as passenger transport.

Hovercraft are still being updated and built in China and elsewhere. A story repeated a hundred times in the past. Is there any need to repeat a long list? The man (British) who invented the wind-up radio, not the most stunning invention but extremely useful all the same [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevor_Baylis] made lists of all the inventions invented by British people in Britain, but which had then been exploited mostly by others, whether in the USA, Germany, or latterly in China.

British people are often poor at blowing their own trumpet. From the World Wide Web to DNA and DNA fingerprinting, the hovercraft, the jet engine, radar. Just hundreds of things.

People will say, “well, what about Dyson?” and it is true that, if anyone has had the benefit of his own ingenuity, it is Dyson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Dyson] but he is one inventor out of many; also, it is sad that he prioritized profit over continuing to manufacture his products in the UK, though I should not want to be too churlish: Dyson has ploughed back some profits into research and education.

Pity about the decommissioning of those cross-Channel hovercraft. They would have been useful in dumping the migrant-invaders back on the beaches of the Pas de Calais. The invaders could be kept in the hold for the 40 min crossing, and hovercraft need no port facilities, just a suitable beach. Out you get!

Hitchens is right. For one thing, the number of deaths from or even “with” Coronavirus has been massively inflated. Even the government of clowns’ own advisers have admitted that (though still claim 40,000+). Secondly, direct civilian casualties in the UK from bombing and other enemy action during WW2 numbered around 67,000, so Piers Morgan is mistaken even in that respect, even taking the official, very inflated, “Covid-19” statistics as correct.

Piers Morgan is just a System mouthpiece.

As I have blogged earlier, both today and on other days, the BBC News on TV is pretty much unwatchable now. Bias and boredom. The “bias and boredom corporation”?

I think that that article would be well worth reading, but it is behind a paywall.

My little evening excursion

I went out to get fish and chips, something I do only once every couple of months. There is a shop on the rural/suburban A-road not far from me, about half a mile away, in a strip, or what an older generation called a “parade”, of small shops. While waiting for the fish to be fried, I bought a few Thunderball tickets at the nearby convenience store (there are about 6 or 7 small shops there, 3 of which sell takeaway food).

I noticed that the florist shop was closed up, with what I took to be (did not go to read it) a legal notice pasted on the window. The little video rental shop was also closed and dark (though it was always open at 7 in the evening), so it looks as though that has, in the old phrase, also probably “gone West”, as has, I suspect, a shop which sells, or sold, curtains and other soft furnishings. So out of about 7 shops (I think that another one closed a while ago), only 4 are still operating: fish and chips, a Chinese/Malay takeaway, an Indian takeaway, and the convenience store (part of a nationwide chain).

The economic depression (using the term in a lay sense) caused, not by “Coronavirus”, but by government action and stupidity has not yet fully hit. The effects are beginning to be seen, however. Dire. The headlines scream about Marks & Spencer or Debenhams sacking thousands of workers, but the real story (or another real story) is the above, but multiplied countless times across Britain. Small shops and other businesses closing down, probably forever.

What is the betting that, when unemployment soars into the many millions, it will be the mask-wearing fanatics, and the “lockdown” enthusiasts, and the typical Twitterati mob, that will be screaming about how the masses are suffering from low pay, no pay, low benefits, lack of decent housing (as the migrant-invaders flood in) and an NHS which is allowing untold thousands to die because undiagnosed and untreated?

Diary Blog, 12 August 2020

I can relate to that…

Coronavirus

My view about all that has changed little or not at all in the past 5 months. I think that “the virus” swept through Europe in March/April, peaked then, and after that subsided. The death toll in the UK has dropped steadily since just before the middle of April, and that has been the situation in most if not all of Europe, regardless of whether the country concerned had a “lockdown” (shutdown of almost everything) or not.

Naturally, mass testing has resulted in many more “new cases”, people who, yes, have “the virus”, but who have few or no symptoms. Ludicrously, the recent increase or bulge in “cases” has trumped the falling death rate in terms of the governmental response.

As for the facemask nonsense, only now, when the death rate is almost flat, has the UK government of clowns mandated the wearing of masks or muzzles.

At present, in August 2020, on any given day, any UK resident has a one in THREE MILLION chance of dying with or from (mostly “with”) Coronavirus! At present, for example, a UK resident would have to take about 11,000 train journeys to even be infected! Not to die; just to be infected.

A society cannot live, certainly cannot live decently, when its population is muzzled and its economy shut down. Now, at last, most businesses in the UK are again open, but the retail ones are supposed to police the wearing of facemasks by their customers. I cannot see that that will encourage shoppers; quite to the contrary.

Already, millions of people in this country have been laid off (or not taken on) despite the “furlough” and other payments from central government funds. There will almost certainly be millions more.

This should be, in logic, the moment when everything is allowed to open up again, with the arguable exception of pubs and nightclubs. Of course, had it been my decision to make, Britain never would have been “locked down” anyway (except for pubs and nightclubs…and inward flights).

Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock (advised by the ludicrous SAGE people) did everything wrong, pretty much: “locked down” most businesses, forced Britain to take a massive hit economically, destroyed much of the feeling that UK people still had civil rights, destroyed the proper functioning of the legal and courts system, turned the police into toytown bullies and nuisances, failed to stop inward flights; and even now are making the wrong decisions: mandating useless facemasks or muzzles, “locking down” towns or parts of cities etc.

Britain has survived a lot in its history, but I am not so sure that it will survive, in a recognizable form, this “virus” panic. Respect for the police and law has been greatly weakened, people know that the government are a bunch of clowns, but the official Opposition is similar and in fact almost invisible.

The consequences of the “virus” panic might be overcome, were they to stand alone. However, Britain has to contend with other pressures coming at the same time: the Brexit effect for one.

I supported Leave, support Brexit, but the governments of Theresa May and Boris-idiot have mishandled Britain’s exit to an extent that surprised even a reluctant cynic like me. Now, Britain is looking at potential chaos in some areas, at least initially.

Then we have the continuing migration-invasion, which not only does the government seem powerless to halt, but which it is actually encouraging! Boris-idiot has invited 4 million Hong Kong Chinese to live in the UK, which would require (will require?) enormous amounts of building, road construction etc.

To put it one way, 4 million people equates to nearly 1.5 times the population of the whole of Greater Manchester (2.8 million) or approximately the population of the Birmingham metropolitan area (4+ million).

To put it another way, Boris-idiot has invited a population the equivalent of between a quarter and a third of that living now in the entire London area sprawl to come to the UK.

Also, the “points-based” immigration system which is present government policy will mean that 660 MILLION immigrants could, in principle, come here. Yes, I know that 660,000,000 will in fact not come here, but 66 million might, and 6 million (oh…) or more certainly would.

This is more than simply the careless negligence of an incompetent part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister. It is “the Great Replacement” or “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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Replacement

In other words, we see that the incompetence of the present UK government masks more obviously sinister motives by those standing behind the present government.

One has to ask, what kind of country allows itself to be “led” or “ruled” by a Cabinet composed almost entirely by persons of alien origin? Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc.

Meanwhile this [below] is Labour’s Shadow Chancellor. No, really…

Two points on the above: firstly, the tweeter may or may not be aware that, just like that little pissant Robert Jenrick, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman (a lawyer), and their children are being brought up as Jewish. In other words, Starmer is completely in the Jew-Zionist pocket (to say the least); Starmer is also a Labour “Friend of Israel”.

Secondly, that sad scene from Jerusalem reinforces the fact that where Jews live in any but very small numbers, non-Jews have no decent life and certainly no freedom. That applies as much in the UK as it does in occupied Palestine (“Israel”). You only have to look at how Zionist Jews in the UK are trying to strangle free speech. Take a look at my own experiences in this regard, or some of such, over the past 6-7 years:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/ https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

The Zionist assault on freedom in the UK has been intensifying for years.

What the pseudo-socialists of today cannot accept is that National Socialism in Germany actually created, in a few short years (really 6 years only, the years of peace 1933-39) a society which gave the majority, in fact the vast majority, of the German population, benefits hitherto only promised as “pie in the sky” by finance-capitalist parties and the social-democrat and socialist parties, let alone the KPD (German communists), who supported the blood-soaked and poverty-stricken rule of Stalin in the Soviet Union.

It turns out that Ms. Butler was not stopped (in fact the car seems to have been being driven by a white man of some kind) “because she is black“, because that car had tinted windows! Or maybe it was after dark. Will check…

I expect that Dawn Butler would make a good candidate for my occasional series, “Deadhead MPs”. In fact, looking at her Wikipedia entry, I am unsure how she has avoided being profiled by me already: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawn_Butler#Expenses.

Some Parliamentary constituencies in the UK, particularly in London, are becoming like some of the more “ghetto” cities in the USA, places where only blacks can stand for election, realistically, because the black mobs there will only vote for a black candidate, no matter how stupid, uneducated, uncultured, incompetent or corrupt.

Poor England. It’s almost gone now.

Coronavirus (again)

More Britons have been killed by flu and pneumonia than coronavirus for seven weeks in a row, new data has revealed. 

Research published by the Office for National Statistics found influenza caused more deaths in the UK than Covid-19 between June 19 and July 31.  

In the seven-week period, 6,626 Britons were killed by flu or pneumonia – compared to 2,992 coronavirus deaths.” [Daily Mail]

Jew, interrupted?

Late evening

In the car earlier, heard a piano piece (via Radio 3) by someone whose name I did not catch, and who apparently was a noted young female composer who died young (I think that the presenter said aged 27). It caught my attention because it was called “Maida Vale“, and may have been (I don’t know) inspired by visits to the BBC studios, Maida Vale, which still exist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_Vale_Studios (Wikipedia says that closure was announced in 2018, but as of today, the studios are, it seems, still in temporary use, if I did not mishear; I thought that the programme was being broadcast from there, but I was reading at the time too).

[BBC Maida Male Studios, London]

I myself lived in Maida Vale for about 20 years (but with breaks), though I was in Little Venice, and the BBC studios are much further out.

As to that short piano piece, it was actually quite intriguing, the style see-sawing between a French Belle Epoque composition and something almost in the style of Gershwin, I thought. That was my not very considered impression, anyway.

Ah, well thanks to the wonder of Google, I have found the composer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morfydd_Llwyn_Owen, who was Welsh, and died at the tragically-young age of 26, in 1918.

I was obviously wrong about her possible connection with Maida Vale Studios though, despite the fact that the building was constructed in 1909. She may have known the building, though not as studios. It was an ice-rink at first, and only became BBC studios after reconstruction in 1933-34.

Well! Small world. The lady was apparently friendly with not only D.H. Lawrence, but Ezra Pound, the near-martyred American poet [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezra_Pound], and with Prince Yusupov [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Yusupov], the leader of the assassins who killed Rasputin. I myself knew a lady who, as a young girl, knew Yusupov, who became a friend of the girl’s father and stayed with them in the 1930s at their estate in East Prussia. By a strange quirk of fate, the lady I knew lived, when I knew her, in Maida Vale and had done since the late 1950s.

A word about Alison Chabloz

My latest blog post about Alison Chabloz, to include more about her recent appeal victory, has been slightly delayed for extraneous reasons, but will be published soon.

As I blogged a couple of days ago, the Crown Prosecution Service has surrendered, having now decided not to offer any evidence against Alison at the planned 10 July appeal hearing (which might anyway have resulted in another adjournment) at Derby Crown Court. The matter has now been taken out of the list. Alison has won. She has defeated both the suborned CPS and the malicious “CAA” [“Campaign Against Antisemitism”] Jew-Zionist conspirators (who may now find themselves in trouble for attempting to pervert the course of justice).

More details when my blog post about the persecution of Alison Chabloz by the “CAA” (mainly), and about the general war on free speech in the UK, is published.

David Starkey

More “me-too” “liberal” repression and groupthink: Starkey has been sacked, by any other word, from his several university roles, and dropped by publishers.

https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2020/jul/03/david-starkey-dropped-publisher-racist-remarks-harpercollins

This is not only hypocrisy, but a kind of sub-Stalinism. Once the “heretic” or “enemy” is identified by the persecutors, he (or she) is removed from jobs or statuses, denounced by those wanting to curry favour with the powerful, or by brainwashed nobodies etc. In terms of our sick contemporary society, the Twitter mob and the like, egged on by the officially-mandated scribblers and TV talking heads.

Starkey won a scholarship to Cambridge University from Kendal Grammar School, and received a First Class degree from Cambridge at a time when that was unusual, i.e. before degrees (and especially Firsts) had been devalued and made all but meaningless.

Those criticizing Starkey are usually of lesser academic attainments; persons such as the scribbler and talking head Piers Morgan, a product of a comprehensive school followed by Harlow Technical College.

What makes the Starkey persecution slightly remarkable is that, in the past week, an Indian agitator and inciter of hatred towards white people, Priyamvada Gopal, was actually promoted to full professor at Cambridge after saying and tweeting that “white lives don’t matter“, a declaration of war on the British people, on all European people.

I do not agree with everything Starkey says, but I respect his honesty, something in short supply in our increasingly (intellectually-) dishonest society. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Starkey

Starkey is not alone, even in the ranks of historians. David Irving was probably the first victim. His very ill-advised libel action against the Jewess and hard-core Zionist, Deborah Lipstadt, brought both the international Jew lobby and “antifascist” “useful idiots” down on his neck. Irving should have shrugged off her insults (remember Oscar Wilde…) and/or taken other action.

After the Lipstadt case, in which she was funded by the international Zionist lobby, Irving’s books were not only withdrawn from sale in bookshops (many are however available via Amazon etc and also on the author’s own website: http://www.fpp.co.uk/), but also many print runs were pulped by the publishers; a number were even burned. The Jews aping the “Nazis” (German National Socialists) once again, and as usual only in the most negative ways.

I link here to Irving’s Wikipedia entry, though it is clear that the Jew element, very strong on Wikipedia (because that way they can mislead millions via tendentious editing) has been unable to conceal its bias: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Irving

Others faced similar attack in recent years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Scruton

Working hours

I have blogged, both in recent days, and years ago, about how the workaholic society should become, not the 1960s sci-fi “society of leisure”, but a “society of measure”. I see now that the general public are thinking about other ways of organizing the work-leisure boundaries. Millard and the People!

In fact, you could keep a 40-hour week and yet reduce the working week in terms of days, by simply having a 10-hour work day, 4 days per week.

Advantages? Less strain on public transport, on roads etc. Less stress on employees, because they would be off-duty 3 days each week (and if Sunday were made to be, once more, a true day of leisure, with shops closed, so much the better). Less cost to employees in terms of train tickets and car fuel etc.

Disadvantages? Not many. Less convenience in shopping, maybe, if all retail employees had the same day off.

Selection of tweets seen

Very true; at first, no-one knew anything much about Coronavirus. We were shown “news” reports of Italian towns with no-one moving except elderly couples having their lonely once a day evening walk through shuttered streets. The fear factor was palpable. It was whipped up throughout much of Europe by dictatorial governments, toytown police bullying ordinary citizens for doing completely harmless things, and by a compliant and uninquisitive msm.

Talking of the msm, have many noticed the sheer volume of System propaganda supporting the “Black Lives Matter” campaign? Sky alone has shown ads frequently about it and promoting it. Commercial ads are more subtly pushing home the same message.

The Great Replacement. White Genocide.

Hungary is a good country, from what I have seen. Admittedly only there for about a week, and never saw Budapest itself, but I drove from Romania to the pleasant small city of Szeged (near the Serbian border https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szeged; the Hungary-Serbia frontier is only about a mile from Szeged), spent 3-4 days there, then drove North-West; stayed several days in a special suite at a former Soviet-style “sanatorium” (hotel, basically), overlooking Lake Balaton’s Western end. I swam in the lake, and drank palinka (fruit spirit) at the bar which had a small bust of Lenin on the bar top! Perhaps a kind of joke. This was in 2001. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Balaton

Budapest is probably one of the few cities left that I both have not visited and would like to visit. Others? St. Petersburg (top of the list), maybe Istanbul (I have seen much of Turkey and Turkish Cyprus in visits totalling about 4 months or so, but never Istanbul); maybe Oulu (Finland); maybe Copenhagen; maybe Lugano (Switzerland). Can’t think of many others. Ah, Baden-Baden…

Boris-idiot and the Chinese virus

Well, Boris Johnson’s shambolic amateur-night Churchill impression of yesterday has not exactly gone down a storm. I think that the infamous casting director who first rejected Richard Whiteley’s application had the right injunction: “Himoff!

Even that peculiar little “Misbegot”, Philip Schofield, is doing a Peter Finch “Network” reprise!

Yes?

In fact, the usually supine msm talking heads such as Schofield seem to be getting back a heady whiff of journalistic (or whatever) independence. Look at Piers Morgan, here tearing a strip off one of the barrow-boy “Conservative” MPs, former market gardener Andrew Bridgen [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Bridgen#Early_life_and_career]:

Reading some of the readers’ comments in, eg the Daily Mail, the public mood is now becoming unforgiving toward Boris-idiot and his Cabinet of fools. And that is before the furlough money tap is shut off…

Even the msm journalists are scathing toward “Boris” now. The only one I saw who is not critical was the ancient reactionary joke scribbler, Janet Daley, in the Telegraph.

I forecast after the 2019 election that, with Labour an irrelevance, any opposition to the “Boris” government of fools would come from within the Conservative Party itself. So it is proving to be.

The public too are now, too late, awakening to the horror of the full uselessness of “Boris” Johnson. Yet he can only be (lawfully) removed by his own MPs, and they are very unlikely to do that at this stage.

Tweets seen, etc

In one part of his mind, “Boris”-idiot knows that the Underground is the best incubator that the Chinese virus could ever find. Another part of “Boris”, however, imagines that all those workers that have to resume (or continue to) work in London can just hail a taxi! Or perhaps bicycle, or stroll, to their work, as do Oxford students en route to lectures and tutorials.

“Boris” should be told that London workers of all kinds do not all live in the purlieus of the Palace of Westminster, or bicycle from Mayfair or Belgravia. Some come in from as far away as Didcot, Diss, Margate and the Isle of Wight! Not to mention North Finchley, Epping, Morden and Ealing

The tweet below caught my attention mainly because it is typical of the times: semi-literate, yet the tweeter is apparently a writer who has written or broadcast for BBC, Sky News, Guardian, New York Times etc…

As I have blogged before, forcing the public to wear absurd facemasks or scarves round the mouth or face will not only not do much (if anything) to stop the Chinese virus, but will be the biggest boon the shoplifters and other criminals have had for years. Eyewitness and cctv evidence will become almost useless, and people will look rather alike in many cases, so facilitating petty (and perhaps also serious) crime.

Evening foray

So to Waitrose. The police, even in this quiet corner (with apologies to Gogol’s Dead Souls) seem to have become much more active. A police jeep saw me and, though ahead of me just before I turned from one road to another, circled around by another route so that the police were behind me after a minute or two. Being rather intuitive, I had guessed from the start that that is what he or they would do, but (having a clear licence and the car insured and MOT-compliant), I could not be bothered to outwit them. In the end, the police followed me all the way to Waitrose in the nearby town, but did not bother to stop me after I turned into the store car park. Still, a sign of the times…

As to Waitrose itself, no obvious shortage of anything and, as on my previous visit, few shoppers, though this time none wearing those pathetic masks or wound-round scarves.

Interesting tweet below, too!

and this (below):

I noticed that in someone, in either January or February (I forget which) for several days, and I believe that I myself may have caught this virus in early February but shown no symptoms at the time (despite being 63). I suppose that I shall never know.

“Furlough” scheme

The furlough payments scheme “should be extended”, it is said:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/12/extend-furlough-scheme-or-face-spiralling-job-losses-rishi-sunak-told

Why? It is not necessary once the absurd “lockdown” is lifted. The scheme costs £8 billion per month, almost as much as the entire NHS with its 2 million employees, which costs £11 billion a month.

It is suggested that the scheme might continue until September instead of end of June. Another £24 billion, almost as much as the wrongheaded HS2 project (in its entirety)! In fact, I would support the furlough extension if that meant that HS2 would be scrapped, but I doubt that ministers will do that. It would be too elegantly simple.

As for the idea floated around Westminster that employees might return part-time, and that the furlough payments be reduced accordingly, that idea would seem to have no logic at all behind it.

Kay Burley

I rarely bother with TV news these days. A kind of Soviet-style government mouthpiece, whatever the channel designation. However, I did see a few minutes of Sky News this [Tuesday] morning. Kay Burley interviewing Angela Rayner.

I do not have much time for Angela Rayner, but Kay Burley’s behaviour was extraordinary to those of us brought up to think that news presenters should be or at least seem “impartial”. To my mind, Kay Burley showed herself completely pro-Conservative Party, pro-Government. I am not talking about giving Angela Rayner a hard time as interviewee but Kay Burley simply shouting out her own opinions and refusing to leave open the possibility that the Government might have acted incompetently. In other words, she did not so much ask questions as demand that her view be accepted.

I have often seen Kay Burley cross the line into partisan territory. She was very hostile to Corbyn from 2015 to 2019, and totally in the pocket of the Jewish lobby; at least that was my strong impression. However, I always discounted the claims of Corbyn supporters that Kay Burley was biased in favour of the Conservative Party as such. No longer a question. She is.

Angela Rayner did try to remonstrate, mildly, with Kay Burley, about the latter’s behaviour in the interview, but to little effect. Indeed, Kay Burley hit back! This is what happens when fairly mediocre, not highly educated people, get jobs as news anchors, get paid a million a year or whatever, and then forget that they are only reporters or news facilitators, not active players. John Humphrys was another example.

Sanity breaks out here and there…

Coronavirus is not at epidemic levels in Britain, experts at Oxford University have said, with new figures showing that only a tiny proportion of the population is currently infected.

The latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests that just 0.24 per cent of adults – approximately 136,000 people – have the virus. Separate surveillance by the Royal College of GPs indicates it may be even less. 

Figures released last week showed just 0.037 per cent of people have the virus…” [Daily Telegraph]

Edwina Currie

Ghastly old Jewess Edwina Currie has apparently been on daytime TV, supporting the Government’s “policy” on “lockdown” etc. Poor Government!

Edwina Currie, like many Jews, especially women, “smiles”, or goes through the motions of what human beings do when they smile, when there is no actual reason to smile. I have never discovered why “they” do that. Like a nervous tic rather than any expression of humour or warmth.

As to Edwina Currie specifically, I remember well her overnight destruction of the UK egg market in 1988. My memory is not at all taxed. I remember that incident because I heard about it in specific circumstances that make it easy to recall. It was late at night and in December 1988, and I was at the Hotel Grand (now the Mercure Grand Warszawa) in Warsaw.

Ilustracja

I had just that evening arrived by train from Bielsko-Biala in the south of Poland. Outside, the snow lay heavy on the ground.

I turned on my radio and found the BBC World Service (which at the time was still worth listening to). The news from the UK had two main items: there had been a terrible train crash at Clapham, South London, with much loss of life; also, Edwina Currie, the government junior minister responsible for, inter alia, the egg industry, had said (wrongly) that most eggs in the UK were contaminated by salmonella. As a direct result of Edwina Currie’s mistake, 4 million hens were slaughtered.

Ain’t that the truth?!” [above]. Now, every Tom, Dick and Sharon has a “degree” from some place or other, quite many have a “Master’s”, involving a 1-year course, which no-one ever fails; in fact at Oxford and Cambridge you get a “Master’s” degree merely on payment of a small sum, with no course requirement, work, or dissertation required!

I am not making that up. In fact, I recall that my then girlfriend, in the 1980s, was sent a letter from Cambridge University warning her that if she wanted to be able to put “M.A.” after her name, she would have to pay (I think) £35, because the time limit was approaching (as I seem to recall). She had graduated around 1971. The limit must have been 10 or 15 years, if there was a limit. Maybe the University just wanted the money.

What a farce…

As for “academics”, “academia” in the wider sense is now full of fakes and simplistic ideologues such as the woman lecturer (I think from Southampton University), whose tweets I saw on Twitter recently, to the effect that books written by “Nazis” should be burned. These are among the gravediggers of European civilization. They must be stopped.

There are numerous “doctors” of this or that (esp. on Twitter) who actually use the title, despite not being medical doctors, academics in any formerly-accepted sense, or persons in either holy orders or scientific institutes. Infra dig, but that is what Britain today is like: just a bad joke.

Despite official figures (quite possibly inflated) showing that 30,000 or so people have died “of” (with) Coronavirus, i.e. about one person out of every 2,000 in the UK, and that only about 4 people (if that) out of every 10,000 are presently infected, the public panic has scarcely abated. Fear has been spread (by the Government, the Opposition, the NHS lobby, the msm etc), and it is now proving hard to rein back on that.

The “Great Replacement” continues…

This is key, but it is actually alarming that so many people, including those with “degrees” and recognized professional qualifications cannot see it. I had smoked salmon for breakfast this morning, and the weather became less cloudy. I do not imagine that the weather became less cloudy because I had smoked salmon for breakfast. It would have happened whether I had smoked salmon, devilled kidneys or raspberry pop-up tarts. cf. “lockdown” and Coronavirus.

Rishi Sunak and furlough

Sunak has extended the “furlough” scheme until October. A remarkable decision, and I think the wrong one. The right decision would have been to open up the economy completely or almost completely from this week or certainly by the end of the month.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52634759

What has now been done is to say to at least 7 million employees and self-employeds, “stay on holiday until the Autumn” on what amounts —for many of them— on full pay, once the costs of simply being employed are taken away (eg transport to and from work).

Yes, others are “working from home”, either actually or notionally, while yet others are, whether as “key workers” or not, still working normally. However, a quarter of the total workforce are now as good as economically inactive until October or even November. The economic fallout will be massive, as will be the upfront costs of “furloughing” all those people: £8 BN x 7 months = £56 billion.

As Lord King, the former Governor of the Bank of England said today, the economy will not be damaged as much by the furlough programme costs (if only because the cost of State borrowings is very low at present and can be spread over long future periods) as it will be by the fact that a quarter of the workforce is not doing anything productive, and because companies on the edge before the “virus” struck are now insolvent but kept in suspended animation by “furlough” monies to employees, loans to companies from the State, and rent holidays (and/or suspension of rent default proceedings in the courts).

The furlough payments will keep up demand to a certain extent, but only to a certain extent, in that payments are capped at £2,500 per month.

The effect on the currency is as yet unknown. Other European (and yet other) countries have similar schemes, so there may well be relativity, but eventually the pound sterling must fall vis a vis most other currencies, thus fuelling inflation in the UK.

I have seen inflation of that type. It has political effects. I am not talking about the utterly mad hyperinflation of Germany in 1923 but a lesser, yet still fast, inflation. When I first went to Poland in 1988, the taxi drivers had a little sticker by the meter. You paid a multiple of what the meter said. When I was there in Summer 1988 (for a couple of months), the stickers read “x2” and then “x4”. When I returned, a few months later, the stickers read “x8”, then “x12”. The following year, the year when the whole Soviet and Eastern European socialist system started to collapse visibly, the stickers read “x40” and then, I think, “x200″…

For a foreigner (what some Germans of the post-WW2 occupation of Berlin called, in a mix of English and Russian, a “valuta vulture” , “valuta” being the Russian for “foreign currency”), the collapse of the Polish zloty in the late 1980s had selfish positive effects: I for example could take a taxi to whatever passed for a good hotel (when I was first in Poland, I was not staying in hotels), have a breakfast, get a taxi onward, and pay (including tips) about £1 or £2 for breakfast and taxis combined. That was not much even in 1988.

Anything produced in Poland could be bought for pennies in English or American currency. For example, I bought a few Polish vinyl records of symphonic music for about 10p or 20p each.

The drawback was that very little was for sale anyway. The usual local shops were not well-stocked. Anything imported had to be bought at hard-currency-only “PEWEX” (pron. “Pevex”) shops: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pewex

Where did people get their dollars to spend at PEWEX? Mostly from the Polish diaspora, particularly the long-established Polish communities in the USA. Remittances to famly members.

One of Lenin’s probably apocryphal statements was “to destroy a country, first destroy its currency“. The fact is true, even if the attribution is not. Currency is a major factor of any state. States that do not have their own currency are joke states (eg Zimbabwe 2009-2019). States where the currency is very weak tend to be weak states (Weimar Germany in the early 1920s, Poland in the 1980s).

In Poland, the collapse of the zloty was not the cause of the collapse of the socialist system, but accompanied it, as did other trends, and the currency collapse was at least one cause of the collapse of “Polish” socialism.

The pound in 2020 or 2022 may not quite go the whole way of the Polish zloty of the 1980s, but “never say never”…

What the government of fools has done, in effect, is declare a national holiday on full pay for millions of people. For a further 4 months. At the same time, the most egregious restrictions of the “lockdown” nonsense are to be relaxed (before the mob ignore them anyway…), so allowing all those people “furloughed” some freedom to enjoy their unexpected weeks and months of leisure.
