Interesting to see that the GoFundMe appeal to defend Jeremy Corbyn from a malicious libel case has reached no less than £328,000 as I write. That sum has been gathered in over the past 13 days. https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund
The latest victim of the “lockdown” shutdown madness
Pizza Express to shut 67 restaurants out of 449. 1,100 jobs “at risk” (gone). I wonder how long the other 382 Pizza Express outlets will last. Pity. I have used their places quite a number of times in the past, and particularly, in the 1990s, one of the oldest ones (which was founded as long ago as 1967), situate in Coptic Street, near the British Museum.
I never saw Prince Andrew sitting there, though.

First, from tweeter “@tph110”, below, an example of the LGBTXYZ nonsense that has taken over, in the UK and elsewhere, from even the semblance of real old-style “socialism” (which latter died around 1989, in all its forms):
Only social nationalism is grounded in social and political reality.
Below, Stephen Silverman, the “CAA” troll, snooper and malicious complainer to police, CPS, msm etc, who (with other Jew friends) used pseudonyms to bully several women online (as exposed in open court), laughs now that he thinks that he has got away with it (the police tried to interview him but allowed themselves to be fobbed off):
Saw the tweet below, from an independent cinema in Leicester Square (London) which I have in fact never visited:
Life is hard for independent cinemas, which is a pity. They often feature the sort of films otherwise only found on DVD, video, or (rarely) late-night TV.
I first saw the excellent film Meetings with Remarkable Men https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meetings_with_Remarkable_Men_(film) at the tiny and now long-defunct Minema, in Knightsbridge (London): http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/20005
As for Meetings with Remarkable Men, well worth seeing:
Another cinema (once a standalone, now part of a small chain and still going) was the Curzon (now the Curzon Mayfair, and part of a small chain), in Curzon Street (London):
It screened (I expect still does screen) films not sufficiently mainstream to be released generally. It screened, on 1985 release, another excellent film, The Shooting Party: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shooting_Party
I recall seeing the cinema at the time it showed that film.
I often used to go to the rather magical and Art Nouveau (if I remember) Electric Cinema, Portobello Road (Notting Hill, London) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Cinema,_Notting_Hill in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Ah, shows how much I know! Wikipedia says that it is Edwardian Baroque: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwardian_architecture#United_Kingdom
I see what they mean; I was thinking more of the interior as it was, with its delicate glass lamps (creating coloured sidelighting, like a Christmas tree in the dark).
The cinema showed Russian-language films, and I went in an attempt to improve my Russian comprehension.

This is exactly right. The “virus” panic and fear campaign has been inflamed from the start. Even such a sceptic —sometimes cynic— as me was affected a little at first.
Australia: now a police fear-state…
From the mouths of, er, babes?
Britain’s toytown police state in actual operation:
About half a dozen rounds should cover the immediate problem…
We are living in a society where the most privileged are actually fomenting events: encouraging minor uprisings, by the blacks and others, and preparing to impose a real police state to replace the “toytown” one which has been disguised as anti-“virus” measures. Don’t imagine that voting, in a completely rigged game, or tweeting, or blogging (for that matter) is going to get you anywhere, still less create a better white northern European society.
I wonder how long it will be before the public (and, it seems, government) understand that, in the absence of cure, vaccine or removal of the conditions that spawned it (as with Yellow Fever and mosquitos), you cannot actually stop or wipe out a disease, or a virus, by means of measures such as shutting down shops, stopping people from socializing, preventing travel, making the population wear facemasks or muzzles etc. Maybe never.
The most that can be done is to delay the “wave”. In the UK, that would have involved stopping most incoming flights, quarantining the few passengers arriving, closing pubs, nightclubs and any crowded gatherings such as race meetings. Also, preventing more than a small number of people getting onto buses and Underground/Overground trains. I am talking here about what should have been done back in March or April of this year.
Instead of the above, the government of Boris-idiot closed down much of the economy, propped up much of the rest with vast amounts of borrowed money, and trashed civil rights in the process.
Now we see that this government of (sinister) clowns has insisted that the public wear (probably useless or even dangerous) facemasks to shops (though not in offices or in pubs!), and seems intent on continuing the “fear” propaganda despite the damage which it continues to do to the UK economy.
The fact is that what has happened is that “the virus” is still around, here and there, people continue to get it, most of those people have no or few symptoms (and so are only discovered via useless testing), and the few who do have serious symptoms and so need medical intervention (there is no “treatment”, amounting to “cure”, as such) are taken to hospital anyway.
This is a condition which actually affects, in any serious way, a very small part of the population, perhaps 1%, and which kills far fewer. Indeed, most of those most affected by it and in real danger of death have already been killed by the virus, often sent to their deaths by the government and NHS managers, who wanted to protect NHS staff and some patients, and so shoved the most vulnerable, including patients actually infected, to the very places where more deaths would be caused readily— care homes.
In the times of Stalin, the “experts” and ministers responsible would have been shot.
What has to happen now is that everything has to open up, the economy and society has to start functioning again, and the facemask nonsense has to be done away with. If the Government etc are unwilling to do that, they are either incompetent or malicious, or both.

Interlude from the golden days of Hollywood…
It is late now, so better to call it a day.
