“Thought for the day”

The Roman Empire slowly collapsed from not one but many causes. However, one was the combination of decadence, luxury, profligacy and cultural degeneration at the top of that society; another was mass immigration into Rome and Italy generally from all parts of the Empire.

There is no exact parallel with the Europe of today and the Britain of today. Close enough, though.

The UK has gone almost mad, and the police sometimes seem completely mad.

Black privilege?

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/pimlico-pusher-sentenced-tesco-vauxhall-bridge-b919028.html

The incident, on May 29, 2018, began as Ms Lancaster was about to leave the Tesco store and Doris’s son was swinging on a metal bar.”

Doris [black defendant], believing [white victim] Ms Lancaster’s basket had touched her son’s head, shouted “you have met the wrong woman you white b***h”, the court heard.

She shoved Ms Lancaster inside the store, hurled racial abuse, and told her: “Watch out, watch what happens to you when you come outside”, Southwark Crown Court heard.

She then shoved Ms Lancaster on the shoulder, forcing her to stumble forward”.

Ms Lancaster, who works in the travel industry, suffered injuries to her head and knees, and was left with post-traumatic stress disorder, the court heard.

Doris, who was sentenced via videolink from her home, admitted assault by beating and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

“Darryl Cherrett, her barrister, said Doris has learning difficulties and mental health difficulties.”

She entered guilty pleas last month on the first day of her trial, with the judge agreeing for her to be sentenced remotely as she was not going to send her straight to prison.”

Sentence? A “suspended” (plus some “mental health” and “rehabilitation” bs). I wonder what a white person would have got, had the roles been reversed?

Several other aspects of that case are troubling: the judge apparently decided to give a non-custodial sentence before even having heard the full history, or any mitigation; the defendant being allowed to sit at home to be “sentenced”; the fact that this low-IQ and lunatic black woman has children at all; finally, a barrister called “Darryl” (chalk that one up to my prejudice). Well, there it is. Britain in 2021…

In the 1980s and later, I myself would sometimes visit that market, off Edgware Road, more to walk through than buy, though I did once buy an excellent-quality 2-flask spirit set in tan leather-covered steel from a woman vending from an old suitcase (and probably without a licence). Secondhand but pristine. £10, I think. Provenance (of both flasks and woman) unknown, beyond both obviously having come from Scotland.

As I have remarked before, this is not a debate; it is a war, or the very beginnings of a war. A war of survival…

Unfortunately, but inevitably, the “big battalions” of the (ZOG) Government, Opposition, msm, and their Twitterati camp followers, have won the argument for the majority of the public mind, won not on merit but because the fear propaganda has been massive and is now embedded.

It will be a different story once people realize that they are permanently poor, marginalized, unable to travel without huge expense and convenience, corralled and controlled, and muzzled everywhere. Then, they will look desperately for a solution…and a leader.

…and to think that I thought that only Russians eat ice-cream in the street when the temperature is sub-zero! Having said that, I myself once or twice had a Baskin-Robbins cone (probably coffee-flavour…I am very much a creature of habit) in a frozen Manhattan, a long long time ago.

So it begins…

These ancient remedies and preventatives are very useful, but we must not lose completely the advanced knowledge developed over the past 500 years (much of it in the past century). If world society steps back, let it then step forward twice, and our society bounce back even if and when a short-to-medium term disaster occurs.

I have experienced similar problems with the police a few times over the past few years, particularly in 2017 and 2018. Police who not only do not know the specific law they themselves are purporting to enforce, but are simply unwilling to be instructed by me, a former practising barrister (one wrongfully disbarred some 8 years after I ceased practice: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/) as to what the law is.

What the law is, not what stray police constables think that it is or might be, and certainly not what malicious Jew-Zionist individuals would like it to be.

I have never been to Copenhagen, but I once read somewhere that, until quite recent times (possibly 1980s), the gates of the Carlsberg brewery had Swastikas either on the gateposts or worked into the brickwork of those gateposts. Maybe the latter. I doubt that they are still there today, wherever they used to be.

The journalist John Rentoul usually presents himself quite well, a political “all-seeing eye”, but I have noticed that he normally scores below me in the Saturday quiz in the i newspaper, so it may be that he is not a fount of knowledge after all.

Then take the next logical step and stop calling “holocaust” “deniers”, “deniers“. “Historians” would be OK, where appropriate, or “historical revisionists“.

Simple. Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak is not anything like as clever as he and the supine msm suppose or believe.

Exactly. The Government is not respected but the “Labour” “Oppositon” is just irrelevant, and is unwilling to oppose “lockdown”, the facemask nonsense etc; indeed, wants more “controls”!

Labour (label) just has nothing to offer. The fact that Keir Starmer is a puppet of the Jewish lobby (meaning Zionist lobby, Israel lobby, NWO/ZOG) is not very relevant in terms of public attitudes, because the public is mostly asleep. Jew-Zionist “control” is rather “caviar to the general”. What does sink Starmer is that (as I blogged before he even took over from Corbyn) he is as dull as ditchwater.

Nick Griffin is correct. Too many people imagine that the world is all black and white (and read that how you will). In fact, there are many different groups, agendas and evils. The Vatican academic, Malachi Martin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malachi_Martin] wrote about such matters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Keys_of_This_Blood.

The Keys of this Blood is well worth reading even today, 30 years after first publication (which is when I first read it).

Martin wrote this book as a geopolitical and georeligious analysis of the last decades of the 20th century. He identifies this period as the millennium end-game for a new world order, which has three main contenders. It will establish the first ever one-world governmentPope John Paul IIMikhail Gorbachev, and international business leaders are in competition to establish this one world government and that this competition will intensify around the turn of the 21st century (around 2000). The book further claims to be an inside account of what the pope is doing to win this geopolitical struggle and how he played an instrumental role in the collapse of the Iron Curtain.

Martin identifies the three main players vying for world domination in the world today and thus lays the ground for his historical analysis: materialism with the East and West in their communism or socialism and capitalism or liberalism, which he places on one side together, and the Roman Catholic Church, the only truly geopolitical spiritual organization in existence today. One of the two sides must win, for they cannot coexist.” [Wikipedia]

I wonder, though, whether Martin’s conclusion is still valid, bearing in mind that the present Pope (possibly the last Pope) is “on side” with secular globalism and with transnational ideas such as “The Great Reset” and “The Great Replacement”. Significantly, Pope Francis is a Jesuit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Francis.

The other great change since the book was published in 1990 has been the disappearance of socialism across the world. In all forms, not only the old SovBloc. In fact, that started to happen a few years before 1990.

We have seen that socialism has not only “failed”, if you like, but has become a shadow of its former self; if you like, a “spectre”, no longer “haunting Europe” like the 19thC/20thC communism of The Communist Manifesto, but lingering here and there, powerlessly, like wisps of mist.

The Roman Catholic presence, still powerful 30 years ago, has also faded. The child abuse scandals worldwide weakened the Church hugely, despite the fact that such crimes also existed and exist in other organizations such as those of the secular state(s).

The general materialism of the age, stronger since 1989, has also sapped all life from the Roman Catholic and other churches.

What is left on the main stage is transnational capitalism and, with it, a “communitarian” consensus/conspiracy on a huge scale. “Black Lives Matter” and the “virus” “panicdemic” are just parts of all that.

“Not up for debate”? That is a declaration of war by a tyranny. If debate is banned, if free speech is banned, then that leaves only one alternative…

It does not surprise me that Boris-idiot is full of “ideas” such as a big navy, a space programme etc. They are the sort of puerile ideas that he has: bridges over not only rivers but even seas, superfast trains, cable cars, fantasy airports on fantasy islands. Schoolboy ideas.

“Boris” has no serious ideas at all; he’s just not up to it. Anything involving real thought about the direction of society is just too complicated for him. He is a simple pizza and booze (and ****) person, not someone fitted to be a Prime Minister.

Is this a surprise? The Cabinet, including the person posing as Prime Minister, are a bunch of Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc. What does Christmas mean to them anyway? What does England or Britain mean?

At some point, the British people have to stand up against this, against all of this, meaning the fear propaganda, the fake scientific “advice”, the invalid “rules” and “laws”, the ZOG/NWO “government”, the facemask nonsense, and the rest of it.

Sadly, I see only small signs of rebellion (active rebellion) so far.

Boris-idiot

I was looking on Oddschecker Political for odds around current UK politics. I see that the betting is that “Boris” will depart from Downing Street next year (2021). That is the favourite bet, followed by this year! Few are willing to bet that he will still be there in 2022, 2023, or 2024.

I cannot say that I am surprised. Recently, I saw someone deflated, someone who has achieved a lifetime ambition only to find that it has turned to ashes in his hands.

“Boris” never was fitted to be a Prime Minister, or any kind of minister. For all his spouting of rote-learned Latin and Greek tags etc, he has not the intellectual horsepower; neither has he any real ideas. In fact, “Boris” is unsuitable in every possible way.

When the time comes, we shall know what to do with such elements.

Look at that: the “British” police will brutalize a British (i.e. white) middleaged woman, but they will kneel down in surrender to a mob of blacks, and will do the bidding of a pack of organized Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which has suborned senior officers of several forces.

I agree. My sympathy for the police ran out, to a large extent, long ago. Being summoned in 2017 to a “voluntary” involuntary interview in godforsaken estuarial Essex, an interview instigated by a pack of malicious Jews, did not improve my view of them… https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Amazingly, malicious and useless Sadiq Khan is still second or third favourite to become Labour leader after Starmer (according to Oddschecker)!

True (though I notice that the baby in the poster is non-European; the non-European population has to be reduced worldwide).

Whether one takes at face value the “global warming” idea, or not, it is clear, surely, that something is happening to the global climate? It may or may not be caused by “emissions” of carbon gases; that is unproven. However, there seems to be, putting it this way, more happening in various ways than was the case at least in the last few centuries.

They look a lot more impressive than the UK equivalent, it has to be admitted…

…and, though few know it, the Guantanamo concentration camp inmates were/are not the first victims of American “dehumanization by mask”; those accused of helping John Wilkes Booth were held on a ship or hulk in the Potomac, hooded and/or masked, for months.

Good grief. What a disgrace.

After this, no prisoners. If the police do the dirty work of an emergent police state, they are part of that emergent police state.

Douglas Murray is just a well-paid puppet of the Jewish lobby, Israel lobby and the NWO/ZOG “System”. Much of what he writes is correct in itself, yet serves the power cabals.

The sheer conformism of the students is incredible. I saw some on a TV news broadcast. Not one said anything like “let’s all march/demonstrate/go home when we feel like it/ do whatever we want to do”. One even said that he does not like the “lockdown” but it must be necessary or some such BS…

Thinking beyond the immediate present, one wonders what those students are actually getting out of their “degree” courses. Presumably most will be rewarded for their passivity and conformity by being awarded “top” degrees (meaningless because almost all will get them), after which they will struggle to get any jobs, certainly any lucrative ones or any that aspire to being part of a “career”.

Unsurprising. After all, what we have in the UK, whatever the party label, is ZOG— Zionist Occupation Government. Now if only Peter Hitchens (or others, for that matter) would make that clear in columns and on radio and TV (before the Zionist Jews gang up to get radio, TV and Press to sack him), that really would be a game-changer; but it is asking a lot to expect any msm journalist, scribbler, or talking head to sacrifice career, income etc for the truth.

Ten deaths! Out of thousands of cases recorded, and a population of maybe 70 million! This is madness. It is clear from the graph above that “the virus” peaked, in terms of deaths from (with) it, in early April, and that there is virtually no danger to most people now.

Oh, no, not another old fool…When I was living for a few months in Egypt (1997-98), I became friendly with a British woman and her Coptic Christian husband (an Egyptian). They told me that this sort of thing is a perennial problem: the older woman from (usually) the UK, aged 40-60 usually, but sometimes older, who “falls in love” with a younger Egyptian (20-40), sometimes a felucca skipper on the Nile, sometimes just someone met at a bar or hotel dance. These days, I suppose one has to add “met on Facebook” or similar to the possibilities…

The woman, divorced or widowed, but sometimes married (but if so, husband not en poste on the holiday) gets seduced and eventually marries the Egyptian. She returns to the UK to sell her house to fund her exciting new life, buys property in Egypt (put into the husband’s name), then, after another trip back to the UK, returns to find her husband living with his real or prior wife (whom the Englishwoman may have met, maybe at the “wedding”, when that other woman posed as the man’s “sister” or “cousin”!).

The British woman soon finds that she has been well and truly “stitched-up”, unable to reclaim her property or money, and quite likely finding that the “marriage” is not even valid under local law.

I might add that a few such marriages are genuine, as with the couple I met, but most are not.

You find this sort of thing reported on occasionally in the UK Press, not only re. Egypt but when British women even marry black Africans from some tribe or other. Absolutely ridiculous.

“Elected” dictatorship…

UKIP, Brexit Party etc are just “controlled opposition”

I happened to see the tweets below. The first are from Gerard Batten and Henry Bolton, two of the former leaders of whatever is left of UKIP.

The other tweeters seem to have both more logic and more commonsense than the two would-be “leaders”:

From Batten, complete lack of understanding that “race is the root-stock, culture is the flower“…

Look at this exchange:

What hope was there for UKIP, when its own former leaders are unsure whether, had they been born in Japan (eg in transit), or lived there, they would be Japanese? What a bunch of clowns!

Looks as though Batten needs to look at the Nuremberg Laws (the real ones, not the Jew-Zionist “edited highlights”…

UKIP is of course on a very different page vis a vis my own ideological basis. It never was social-national, and was never heavily attacked by the Jew element in the msm, a very bad sign (individual Jews tweeted etc against UKIP, but the core Zionist element was untroubled by it). UKIP was always given Press coverage, TV coverage; Farage the con-man extraordinaire was forever on Newsnight, Question Time, the TV news etc. Permitted opposition. Controlled opposition.

When UKIP was still a functioning party with a real chance of forming a small House of Commons bloc, I tweeted about it quite frequently. I am talking about between 2010-2015. After 2015, I understood that UKIP’s chance had gone (in fact, it peaked around 2014), cheated as it was by the UK’s pseudo-democratic electoral system: 12.6% of the national vote but only a small fraction of 1% of the MPs, in fact only 1 MP out of 650 (and he was a defected Conservative Party MP anyway).

I did blog a little about UKIP in the runup to the 2017 General Election. I knew that it would sink like a stone. The only reason that I now blog about it (for the first time in about a year) is because I saw those absurd Batten tweets. I was not going to blog today, but I can tack this bit about UKIP onto the start of tomorrow’s blog post.

UKIP has almost fallen into obscurity. Its not-bad 2015 General Election percentage (12.6%) fell to 1.8% in 2017, under the dim Paul Nuttall; that was the first decline in national vote-share that UKIP had ever suffered since its foundation. The 2019 General Election result was even worse: under the ludicrous Patricia Mountain, UKIP’s vote fell to 0.1%, i.e. one vote out of every thousand.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_United_Kingdom_general_election#Full_results

In fact, so obscure is UKIP now that I realize that I was scarcely aware of some of its leaders of recent years.

The tweet/reply below, by one Valerie Leppard, made me laugh (though at the same time despair at the naivety displayed):

Ms. Leppard makes much of the fact that human beings all have 99% similar DNA. That is true. In fact it is said to be considerably higher than 99% similarity. On the other hand, chimpanzees share 96% of their DNA with humans, cats share up to 90%, and even bananas share 60%! https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/human-dna-share-cats-cattle-mice-same-genetics-code-a8292111.html

How far do such facts take you? I was once a guest at a private tennis club in North London. I had gone out of politeness. Despite having played occasionally since childhood, I still scarcely know the rules or how to play properly; anyone who knows me knows that I am not very sport-oriented. I did once score a direct hit from some distance with a tennis ball, on the bottom of a Ukrainian lady who had stooped to pick up another ball, but that hardly counts!

That London tennis club was rather formal. You had to wear the right clothing etc; it also had a pleasant bar, from which one could watch people playing. I saw a doubles match and, to my untutored eye, they looked not much different from the professionals who play at Wimbledon. Of course they were different, and that is the point. There was a far greater gulf between my inept level of play and the doubles-players than there was between them and the Wimbledon champions.

Champions, or the top people in every category of activity, are ipso facto better than almost all others. However, they may not be much better than a mass, perhaps a vast mass, just below that championship level. It is that tiny amount of edge that makes the difference.

Applying that to races and, yes, in big-picture “scientific” terms the DNA of the Northern European is very very close to other peoples, and even to the most backward peoples. It is that tiny difference that, all the same, matters.

In your nothing I hope to find my everything“; “In deinem Nichts hoff ‘ ich, das All zu finden“[Goethe, Faust; Faust answering Mephistopheles, who has said that Faust’s belief is nothing].

Well, leaving such observations and reverting to the mundane world of UK politics as it is, and UKIP, I notice that even Wikipedia has found little to say of some of the post-Farage “leaders” of UKIP. In one case, that of someone called Wauchope, apparently (never heard of him), even the year of his birth is uncertain!

UKIP is said still to have 25,000 members, though I doubt that.

I see that one Freddy Vachha is now the “leader” of this embarrassing joke of a party. An Indian accountant. The tide has gone out, leaving some odd bits and pieces on the sand.

The Army, Navy, Marines are all recruiting now on TV. They are finding it hard going to recruit many. I wonder why? Could it be that potential recruits realize that the armed services have become a joke? Also, that they abandon their people once their useful service has ended?

Take a look at Twitter. The Jewish-Zionist cabal on Twitter constantly tweets in favour of the migrant-invaders, “generously” wanting more to invade us. Yes, that Jewish mob on Twitter are all wonderfully generous with other people’s money, State funds etc, wanting the UK to take in anyone who manages to get here, no matter how hostile or useless. The same is true of “refugees welcome” dimwits and hypocrites such as Gary Lineker, Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen and all the other usual suspects.

Batten is too late. Regular readers of my blog will know that I suggested at least a year ago that Harry and the Royal Mulatta should (and would) relocate from the UK to Southern California.

I went on to suggest that they become a “reality TV” sitcom mix, perhaps living a pseudo-“royal” life in a little house; just Harry, the Mulatta, their baby, the dog (if not abandoned) and a butler, a Benson type. “Royal Married with Children“, with the Mulatta running her henpecked “cuck” husband ragged with impossible demands, as she tries to be a contender for political positions.

Sometimes I think that I am a male Cassandra, always predicting accurately, but rarely listened to…

Well, “historian” (TV presenter) Neil Oliver may be belatedly speaking up for some free speech now, but I seem to recall that he tweeted against me years ago when I still had a Twitter account. I have never seen anything from him supporting me, eg when I was disbarred for posting 5 tweets (out of 150,000+) on socio-political matters. I likewise did not see him support Jez Turner (imprisoned for making a speech) or Alison Chabloz (persecuted, prosecuted and convicted for singing satirical songs).

I also recall how biased Oliver was when some matters involving WW2 came up on his TV show, Coast.

Scotland does seem to be even worse on free speech than England. The combined influence of Jew-Zionism, freemasonry, Common Purpose (Police Scotland is riddled with both of the last two) and post-socialist SNP petty authoritarianism.

Ironic. What does Batten think that UKIP were? Quite. Controlled opposition. Just like Brexit Party, Tommy Robinson, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc.

Only machineguns can sort out this upsurge of madness in the USA. What it says to me is not “there is disorder now” but “if the US system ever weakens greatly, which is quite possible, there will be civil war“. Those unpleasant scenes may well be just the start.

I noticed in Waitrose that Ben & Jerry’s icecream is not selling, and has been reduced in price as a consequence. Don’t bother to sabotage it. Just boycott it.

Although Beira is the popular resort on the Indian Ocean, the hotel has never been able to attract many visitors.

Hard to know what to think. The Greenland ice cover is vast and deep, certainly, and Wikipedia says that “If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world’s sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

If that were to happen, a scenario that has interested me since the late 1970s (along with the possible melting of polar ice proper, both from Arctic and Antarctic), then most of the major cities of the world would be drowned, situated as most are on or near sea-level.

A rise of 23ft would flood much of London, New York, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, to name only a few of the most obvious.

On the other hand, we know that Greenland has been at times warmer than it now is. The Vikings farmed there; there are remains of farmsteads from quite ancient times, certainly from the first millennium AD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#History.

Not all of Greenland is ice and snow, however. In that vast land, over nine times the size of the UK, there is farming, in the southern part, by the coast.

I doubt that humanity can do much to change the climate in a significant way, but the issue is naturally one of utmost seriousness.

Less seriously, I just read that “Greenlandic coffee is a “flaming” dessert coffee (set alight before serving) made with coffee, whiskey, Kahlúa, Grand Marnier, and whipped cream. It is stronger than the familiar Irish dessert coffee.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#Cuisine. After a few of those, the sting of living in Greenland must at least be made less painful!

Rule Britannia

If you went, as orchestral conductor, or as ordinary tourist, to another country, and then tried to trash the traditional festivals of that country, you would be jeered at and quite possibly attacked or deported. In Britain, all sorts of oddities arrive, aided by traitors in the BBC etc, and want to disrespect us. I know that Rule Britannia is now simply an expression of an Empire that no longer exists, but it does stand for part of the national psyche. The part not yet contaminated. It must not be blotted out by the “woke”, the non-whites, the cosmopolitan Jews etc. As performed at the Proms, it is both emotional and fun. It must remain.

Significant. In England, there is no credible choice to set against a bad joke government totally lacking in credibility, because Labour is even less credible than the Conservative Party, especially now that the Jewish lobby has retaken control.

Keir Starmer, whom I thought could at least put on a brave face of credibility or at least steadiness, has been photographed on his knees or knee, along with his deputy, the absurd Angela Rayner, making a show of their surrender to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense (System-controlled nonsense, though…). Starmer looks like a weak accomplice of all Government policy, so far. There’s nothing beyond the “I was the DPP” facade. Nothing.

In Scotland, it is slightly different. For me, Sturgeon and the SNP are faux-“nationalists”, but from the point of the Scottish voters, or at least about half of them, the SNP looks like a real alternative (even if it is not). The same applies to “Independence”. Don’t like Boris-idiot, or fake “Labour”? Well, vote SNP and vote for “Independence”…

Exactly. The police are still around, and are actually quite good at tracking down murderers etc. However, the police fall down when it comes to “small” robberies, burglaries, car crime, anti-social behaviour, and other mattersof more concern to most inhabitants of these islands. Also, of course, any crime likely to result in black riots “has to be” handled with velvet gloves .

At the same time, the police are really energetic, given their head, in acting like a toytown militia, preventing ordinary citizens from doing harmless and normal things. That all came out during the ridiculous Government/msm-inspired Coronavirus panic and accompanying “lockdown” regime. The police were behaving like manic clockwork toys: the Government wound them up and off they went…

The police are also now a “poundland KGB” when it comes to so-called “hate crime”, which can mean almost anything, including general comment on society. Look at Alison Chabloz and the persecution she has suffered and is still suffering from the police, who are doing the bidding of —again— the Jewish Zionist lobby. One has to ask, “why is it always (((them)))“?

“Hate crime”…in terms of expressing comments about society, this is a non-crime. The police love it. No need to have an identified “victim” (beyond a malicious “complainant”, such as the two Jewish Zionist organizations, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” and the “Community Security Trust”), no need to do much if any detective work; and the “criminals” (unlike real criminals) are very unlikely to behave in a violent manner if questioned or arrested.

What about this?

Great Reset“? Would that be the same as the “Great Replacement“? Or maybe the latter is just part of the former? What about “White Genocide“?

6 July 2020:

Heard a story about a weekend medical emergency. The usual NHS story, perhaps: efficient and pleasant paramedics, mostly caring but run-off-their-feet nurses (one exception apparently being a nurse sitting doing nothing but watching a frail old patient unable to eat his breakfast porridge by reason of Parkinsons or similar), and excellent doctors one of whom eventually bent the rules so that the patient (the one I know, not the old one with the shaking hands) could get what turned out to be an excellent surgical result immediately, rather than having to wait days or weeks. Food in hospital apparently not bad, and including such as cod Mornay (the food much better than same patient’s experience at same hospital a few years ago, so the NHS can improve, incidentally).

What let down the patient’s experience was, as always with the NHS, the administrative side: transport, and general organization in the hospital and ward, part of which might be ascribed simply to how very busy the nurses were. The poor administration was ameliorated by the willingness of a few staff to bend the rules slightly and not to be jobsworths (which a couple were). That however should not be necessary.

Hearing the story, and having visited a number of hospitals (not as a patient) over the past decade, it seems to me that what is required, in part, is for each hospital ward to have someone as a kind of receptionist and “fixer”.

In offices situated in places like the Arabian/Persian Gulf, there is usually a person (I forget the Arab title) whose job it is, working with a receptionist, to arrange transport, make sure that telephone or other messages are delivered, and so on.

Looking at the often-shambolic NHS organization, it is clear that that is the weakest link. There is no need for all the stress on both staff and patients caused by problems around transport, parking, scheduling of operations, availability of wheelchairs (something so basic!) and other hospital activity. A ward “fixer” might not solve all the problems of the NHS, but it would solve many of the everyday ones. It would also, immediately, free nurses and junior doctors to do their primary work.

It is a great shame that the —mostly very good— work of paramedics, nurses, doctors, surgeons etc should be let down by shambolic administration and systems. What makes it worse is that the administrators, who are so often simply negligent, are among the better paid (at top, hugely well-paid) people in the NHS.

Incidentally, in France there are no hospital wards and have not been since, I believe I read, 1978. Maybe it was 1988. At any rate, since at least 30 years ago, French hospital patients all have either a single room or one shared with one other patient. Another point: in France, certainly in Brittany, patients with serious conditions, and who are being treated as outpatients, have taxis booked at State expense to transport them to and from hospital. Also, as far as I am aware, there is no such thing in French hospitals as having to pay to park a car when visiting patients.

Why is the above (re. French hospitals) all regarded as somehow impossible or unworkable in the UK?

I had assumed that the Coronavirus panic had abated, and so it has…in the general population; not in the NHS though, the GPs of which are still available only on the telephone, and that is only if people can somehow get to talk to them. The NHS has certainly protected itself, but what about the rest of the population?

Jesus H. Christ! They used to call it (or them) “the White Man’s Burden”, but I think that, as far as 95% of them are concerned, “a millstone round our collective neck” is an equally just verdict.

[above: in the USA, a scene like this is usually called a “chimp-out”, or so I am told…]

Of course, little Greta Nut, the Swedish autistic and mental case, who (in our decadent age) is listened to with faked reverence by many of “the great and the good” (but mostly the stupid), makes much of what she always calls “The Science”, despite the fact that she has no scientific qualification (she is still only 17) and obviously has no real understanding either.

The same can be said of the leader (?) of Extinction Rebellion, a former smallholder or farmer called Hallam. He too reverences “The Science”, which he plainly does not understand in any detail. See: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/ and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/extinction-rebellion-greta-thunberg-cressida-dick-and-the-madness-of-protesting-crowds/

Coronavirus

It now seems to be accepted that, as I myself suspected some time ago, Coronavirus may have swept through the UK and particularly the London area as long ago as January:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8250371/How-people-REALLY-caught-coronavirus.html

There is now a plausible argument that as many as 5 million people in the London area are, or have been, infected. So far, about 5,000 have died of or with the virus. 1 in every 1,000 of the infected population.

The above facts make a nonsense of “lockdown”, as suspected. The entire economy and society has been closed down because of a likely one in a thousand chance of being killed (which probably would happen anyway, “lockdown” or no “lockdown”).

That is a thousand times greater than the chance of being struck by lightning, and is quite a high probability for mathematicians, but for those of us in the real world is a rather small chance, though admittedly far from de minimis.

No-one seriously suggests that Coronavirus is not a serious public health emergency, but it has been hugely overblown, and regarded like the Black Death or something similar.

http://www.bandolier.org.uk/booth/Risk/dyingage.html

https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2011/jan/14/mortality-statistics-causes-death-england-wales-2009

The Government and its staff insist that it is only because of the “lockdown” that Britain has “wrestled the infection figures down” to the point where the reproduction number (RO) is below one, meaning that the virus will now decline inexorably to near zero. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8255677/Chris-Whitty-reveals-UKs-reproduction-number-dropped-1.html

Nonsense. “Lockdown” is all but irrelevant. A leading expert, an Israeli, has just recently said that any measures taken in various countries are close to irrelevant to the ultimate outcome. That seems to accord with what has happened in countries around the world.

The latest “plan” from little Matt Hancock is for people to be “allowed” to meet up to 10 specified others outside their own households! Only a cretin of the Hancock sort could come up with a “plan” so impossible to make work! Who will enforce this “plan”? The whole thing is ridiculous.

Someone like G.K. Chesterton would have fun with this “plan”, and probably write an amusing short story about it.

Meanwhile, in the real world, people are (judging by what I saw on my local roads yesterday) all but ignoring the “lockdown”. Plenty of traffic compared to a couple of weeks ago.

I hope that this episode has taught the increasingly arrogant Common Purpose-infected police a lesson, to wit that they police by consent in this country. People (misinformed, brainwashed, so be it) consented at first to the “lockdown”, but more and more are waking up to the fact that Coronavirus is almost yesterday’s news.

Most people now understand that, especially if they are under 70, they are not going to get Coronavirus or die from it, and that, if they are under 40, there is every chance that, even if they are infected, they will be totally unaware of the fact.

Those at high(er) risk are known: non-Europeans; inhabitants of “hotspots” such as London, West Midlands etc; older persons (esp. over 70); persons with other serious health problems.

The chance of getting it and being hospitalized and then dying is probably not even one in a thousand overall. For white people under 40 it is close to zero.

Tweets

(because Douglas Murray has not worked out, or been told, what the Jewish/NWO lobby wants him to say…)

Below, a Peter Hitchens tweet which echoes some of what I have been saying about Boris-idiot for years:

Alarming, that “Shannon” cannot see that this absurd and petty-tyrannical “lockdown” breaches “our rights“! A non-European, it seems; with where is she comparing the UK in human rights terms? Some place in Asia? North Korea? Also, “aspiring journalist”. Well, looking at the standards of journalism now, plummeting even in the national msm, I am hardly shocked. Looking at her other tweets, she seems well-meaning but, frankly put, not the brightest. Talks about “uni” and her “dissertation” (leading to a “doctorate”, presumably) yet mixes up “their” and “there” in some tweets. A couple of yet other tweets from this person, below:

In other words, unless a political chancer like Boris-idiot gives you permission to leave your houses, stay effectively under house arrest, because “you are probably supposed to stay inside.” She obviously has no real idea what longstanding British civil rights are…and there are millions like her in the UK now, millions…

A sign of the times…

More tweets

Speaking personally, I keep to the “Government lockdown advice” not because it has any legitimacy (or legality, arguably), nor because I am afraid of being fined (the police would never be able to catch me for anything anyway), but simply because the libraries, bookshops, charity shops, cafes etc are all shut. Even the barber. In short, apart from the nearest supermarket (about a mile away), the nearest M&S (ditto) and the nearest village shop (a mile or so in the other direction), I have nowhere to go unless you count a monthly visit to a Boots and a weekly call-in to get a few gallons of fuel.

As for exercise, I have not done any serious exercise for nearly 20 years, and it is even longer since I swam 90 lengths (nearly 2 miles) without a pause, or trekked up the mountains of the Tien Shan in summer heat and winter snow. So I do not go out to exercise.

I am, in a word, the perfect “lockdown” citizen, without even wishing so to be!

More evidence that the “lockdown” in the UK is a pointless exercise that is trashing the economy (without which there will be no NHS, by the way). Still, “keep clapping” (nein danke!). As a matter of fact, it seems to me that this whole “clapathon” nonsense is basically the public services applauding themselves, and in some cases unmeritoriously.

Linguistic “hate”

I wish that people brainwashed by American msm culture would at least stick to tried and true English English. In particular, I see many tweets today on the subject of pasta, talking about people “hating on penne”. THERE IS NO “on“! “Hating penne”— good. “Not hating penne”— also good, BUT NO “on“, either way!

What makes it worse is that I would be prepared to bet that 90% of these miscreants have never visited, let alone lived in, the USA. They have no excuse! If I, once married to an American, once nearly married to another, who lived on and off in New Jersey for 3+ years, who repeatedly visited and/or worked in Florida and South Carolina, and who is still nominally a member of the New York Bar, do not say “hating on…“, then someone who has never left Essex, Brighton, or London (mostly London, judging from Twitter) has no excuse!

While I am on the same (perhaps minor) sort of subject, those places where you can embark on a train are railway or at least rail stations, not “train stations”! I first heard “train station” in London in or about 1990, from a West Indian woman. Since then, it has invaded and conquered the BBC, Sky, the print msm…Even persons pretending to education use it, sometimes. No…

Hating railway stations” = OK (though puzzling), “hating on train stations“= not OK.

Back to the present “lockdown” nonsense

That, Mr. Hitchens, does not wash. It is for those who laid down the “rules” and the stupid Coronavirus Act 2020 to prove, via successful prosecutions, that one or both are lawful. The 17thC-19thC freedoms which Hitchens supports would never have emerged had the people of those times always waited for the State to be challenged in the courts.

I have not read all of the law recently passed, but I doubt that “incitement” to break it is itself an offence anyway.

The real reason not to “incite” breaking the new petty tyranny law is, simply, that few would attend a demonstration. Demonstrations and marches are almost always a waste of time and effort. “What would happen if you held a demo, and no-one came?” There is your problem, the spinelessness of the present UK population.

Oh dear (see below): I disagree with Hitchens again. “House prices are the true measure of inflation“? That’s nonsense.

From 1983 until 2000, people buying houses on mortgages got a completely unjustified tax break: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortgage_interest_relief_at_source

That was a government giveaway; the same has been true of other more recent incentives to buy houses, eg relief for buy-to-let parasites. The result? Absurd house price inflation. If I lived in a house in London valued in 1980 at £100,000, which is now (or was in 2019) valued at £4 million, that is not a genuine measure of inflation but an artificially-fanned conflagration of inflation. House price increase— 40x in 40 years, in a society where pay has, on average, increased by, at most, 10x, and for most people maybe 5x.

The price of, say, retailed food, has also increased by maybe 5x in the same period. Wine that was £2 a bottle in 1980 is about £8 or £10 now.

Hitchens is very up the creek here, I fear.

After agreeing with many of Hitchens’ recent tweets, I am now in disagreement over some things…

“Rich” is indefinite, of course, but I do not think that anyone who has an overinflated house “worth” a couple of million can be described as anything but at least somewhat rich…(a thought dictated by my seeing on Rightmove a house for sale in the little crescent off Reigate Hill, Surrey, where my parents lived in the early 1980s. £1.25M! Ridiculous).

Yes, if the owner sells his one million pound house, he needs to buy another. Or does he? Someone with a million pounds has options, such as buying a house in a cheaper part of the UK (a million-pound house in Surrey or London can be replaced for as little as £300,000 in many quite decent parts of England or Wales. Or the possessor of a million pounds can buy a luxury yacht for, say, £250,000, live aboard and still have £750,000 to fund the fun in the Med, Caribbean etc.

Again, see below, it seems to me that Hitchens is, to some extent, up the creek here:

Most people with money (beyond some low level) in the UK inherited their money, they did not, primarily, earn it. Much of that is real property, or proceeds of sale thereof, that gets passed down. There are exceptions, and from 1945-1989 (to pick an end-date) quite a few, but these days, few really make much money actually working, even if that work is (or so the public think) lucrative, say at the Bar. Hitchens, as often noted, is here in his beloved 1950s rather than in the Britain of 2020.

I do, however, agree with Hitchens here (below):

More tweets

Here, below, the authentic voice of the inner London (Islington) “radical”, begging for “authority” to “step in” etc, while thinking herself almost revolutionary…

Note the language: Allison Pearson, the columnist, as “a danger”. A “danger” to what? A constipated and completely pseudo-socialist view of society?

“Lina” is right about another of her targets, Priti Patel, though. What a thick plank she is! Home Secretary, no less, in the Government of Fools.

Here’s another “socialist” poseur, who thinks that he is terribly clever (it seems), one John Crace: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Crace_(writer)

Time was when the Guardian would have had something to say about the complete trashing of the rights of the British public, about their having been corralled at home because the advisers of a government of total incompetents thought that the Black Death was about to arrive. But no; these days, the Guardian’s unimpressive scribblers prefer to tweet that people who have woken up to the absurdity of State-imposed “lockdown” have “a single brain cell” for not complying (any longer) with the continuation of the patently ridiculous mass house arrest imposed. Time was…

Thus we see, in part, why “Guardian” views are just ignored these days, and we also see why, in part, the Labour Party is all but finished.

One of the few pleasant aspects of the manufactured “crisis” is that little Greta Nut is no more to be seen in the newspapers. She or those behind her made a brave attempt to piggyback on the virus news agenda, by claiming that Greta “showed symptoms” of Coronavirus. Sure she did…A Scandinavian, aged 17. What were the symptoms? A-tishoo? Twice?

Actually, I have to amend the above paragraph, because I saw this in the Guardian as I wrote: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/apr/22/earth-day-greta-thunberg-calls-for-new-path-after-pandemic

If one single virus can destroy economies in a couple of weeks, it shows we are not thinking long-term and taking risks into account.” [Greta Thunberg, or her “advisers”]. Has she never heard of the Black Death, the Plague etc?

I think that her 15 mins of fame must be nearly at an end.

Here is another brave attempt to retain relevance:

Sign of the times

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/thugs-smash-up-hero-doctors-21792310

Police “too busy” to look through videos from just one named building to find the criminals, who must have been caught on camera! I bet that if a Jew complained that he was insulted there, the police would find the time, magically…The police really are usually a waste of space now. They are unwilling to help the public or to detect and solve crimes, most of the time, but prefer to act as a poundland KGB and thought-control force.

Coronavirus

There are tentative signs that the crisis has already peaked in Europe and much of Asia. In Italy, the death toll has reduced for the 7th consecutive day, and Sweden (which is not even in “lockdown”) is no worse off than the UK (which is). In the UK itself, the death toll is still increasing but that comes after a few days of decline and after the goalposts were moved by changing the statistical criteria. In Denmark, the government has said that it will be reviewing whether to ease restrictions after Easter, i.e. by mid-April.

Whatever is happening in the Americas, we in Europe can hope that this, or most of this, will be over by June.

The evidence is sketchy either way, but it seems logical to me (and always has), as a lay person, that if the virus can only live on or in people for 3-4 weeks at maximum, and if it can only live on inanimate surfaces for between seconds and a month (and usually for less than a few hours), then the virus as a social crisis is going to be over within a couple of months. By then, a vast number of people will have been infected, most will either have shown no symptoms or very mild symptoms, a lesser number will show symptoms not requiring medical care, a few will require such care, and a tiny minority will die. Whatever happens to those infected, it is all over, one way or the other, within a month.

In all cases, the virus will have done whatever it will have done within a few weeks or so. Even bearing in mind that new and uninfected people could still be infected, the main links of infection will not exist after May, it seems. That is, about 8 weeks or so from now.

In any case, if the present shutdown of the UK economy continues beyond May, the damage will probably be irreparable.

To what extent is the “lockdown” in the UK helping? It must be helping, but to what extent? We do not know. Sweden’s stats are broadly similar to the UK’s on Coronavirus infections (and better on deaths), but there they have no general “lockdown”. It is logical to assume that the UK “lockdown” is helping slow the rate of infections. However, the main safeguarding measure is that understood from the start: washing hands efficiently and frequently with soap and water.

Differences within Europe

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8180439/UK-declares-569-coronavirus-deaths.html

The NHS is a very fine institution. In principle. In practice, it is patchy. The surgical and some other aspects are excellent, but the administration is more suited to some backward country in Africa or pre-1989 Eastern Europe. Shambolic. A bad joke. Coronavirus has cruelly exposed all of this.

In Germany, Scandinavia, even France, we see their health services dealing with the situation. In the UK, we see political squabbles and nonsense, shambolic NHS mismanagement, combined with fake “community” involvement like something out of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four: “Clap-in for the NHS”, and now “Second Clap-in for the NHS”. A kind of almost-forced “community involvement” for a country where the most important thing is virtue-signalling; and like other kinds of virtue-signalling, it accomplishes nothing.

The last thing that I would want would be for the NHS to become like the rapacious money-obsessed American healthcare model, but the NHS does need reform, as well as more money. In fact, part of the problem with healthcare in the UK is that we are given this false choice of “either British NHS or American get-what-you-pay-for healthcare”. That is not the choice. There is a variety of different healthcare models in the world, a variety of funding solutions.

Britain has been hampered in choosing and implementing a better healthcare system for several reasons:

  • the NHS as a “sacred cow” that cannot be changed (or criticized);
  • botched “reforms” by inane and often anti-NHS politicians;
  • the huge inertia in a system that employs over 2 million people;
  • entrenched group interests of the various blocs of healthcare professionals;
  • very poor and often hugely overpaid administrative layers.

Anecdote: I knew a retired British couple when I lived in France. The husband and wife both had serious health problems, in the case of the husband mainly heart-related. At first, he used to return to the UK for treatment, thinking, as English people do, that the NHS was bound to be better. When he finally decided to access the French system, it was revelatory. The equivalent of a “consultant” asked him (in English) what medicines he had been prescribed for his condition. He replied. The French consultant was visibly underwhelmed and said “well, I think that we can do better than that.”

The wife of that couple had a cancer condition. She was also far better taken care of in France than in Britain (or so I was told).

Another aspect to the above anecdote. The couple described lived in Finistere-Nord in Brittany. The treatment took place in the city of Brest, an hour’s drive away. The couple had cars, but preferred not to drive too far, partly because of their health problems. The French healthcare system paid for both of them to get to and from the hospital in Brest by commercial taxi! This is in fact quite normal there. In fact, a friend of mine found that it was hard to book a taxi in Finistere for ordinary reasons because most are booked-up by such hospital journeys.

Government aid to private economic enterprises

We are told that large enterprises which are now facing collapse must be given hundreds of millions of pounds each to keep them standing. Virgin Atlantic, BA etc. This is unsustainable, for more than a couple of months anyway. I am not sure that it is even desirable. The support should be given to individuals, not companies. The companies may go down. New companies will emerge, when trading conditions improve. Throwing money at what in many cases are already failing capitalist enterprises is the worst thing that government could do.

Economic growth comes from demand. Demand comes from the bottom, from the millions and tens of millions in the country. Their demand for goods and services fuels the birth and growth of new companies supplying those goods and services. It is wrongheaded to support existing, often poorly-run, companies. In effect, by doing that, government is subsidizing shareholders at the expense of other citizens. This was the conceptual error behind the bank bail-out of 2007-2008, which has suppressed the real economy for the past decade. Money, on a vast scale given to rapacious and incompetent banks run by incompetent and rapacious managements and owned by greedy shareholders. No understanding that banks are just “useful parasites” upon the real economy.

Even government, with its huge reach based on huge borrowing, cannot subsidize the whole economy —not for long—in a situation where the real economy is mostly not functioning. The various “lockdown” restrictions will have to be eased quite soon if mortal injury is not to be done. That may in fact already have happened.

Coronavirus in China and Europe: going, going, gone?

 

 

My take

  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water is the best protection. The countries of Europe with the worst personal hygiene (Italy and Spain) have been by far the worst-hit by Coronavirus (why not Greece too? God knows…).
  • In China, and across Europe, the Coronavirus infection rate and death rate are both stabilizing or, in most places, falling.
  • Social isolation was a good policy to try for a week or so and it has probably greatly helped but in a secondary way. The handwashing is far and away the most important.
  • “Social distancing”, while obviously useful, is not of much importance.
  • Most people either do not get the virus at all, or show no symptoms, or mild symptoms only.
  • Only a few (in the UK about 1 in every 3,000 people) will need to be hospitalized.
  • Very few people indeed —speaking relatively— will die from Coronavirus (in the UK, so far, about 2,900, out of maybe 70 million people, which is about 25 people out of every million or 1 person out of every 40,000).

Evening outing

Went out to Waitrose. Marginally busier than it was 2 days ago on Tuesday (also at 1930). A few poor souls like me lining up, ten feet apart, waiting to be approved by the three or four Handmaid’s Tale militia (Waitrose marshals) loitering outside, then given a trolley and permission to enter the sacred precincts of the store.

Inside, the absurd thing was that the same people religiously “distancing” outside were shopping within a couple of feet of each other at times! Shaking head territory…

Most items available. Pasta (dried pasta) cleared out (again), but plenty of sauce in jars. Rice rather depleted too, though available. Loo paper shelves full of product. Eggs available. Milk too. Bread too. No chickens, and no lemons. Are the locals all making lemon chicken? Ignorabimus (we shall never know).

Coronavirus: the official scare campaign continues

The goalposts are being moved: the official death toll in the UK from the virus is going to increase today or tomorrow, not because more people are dying but because if any link with the virus can be shown, that death will be added to the “Coronavirus” total!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8170065/UKs-coronavirus-death-toll-HIGHER-official-figures.html

But in better news Britain’s coronavirus outbreak is ‘starting to slow’ as rate of increase in hospital admissions ‘eases’, says government expert Neil Ferguson” [Daily Mail]

Exactly.

The weather is forecast to get wetter in Britain, possibly with over 80% humidity by next week. That will help, if it happens, because the virus cannot live in humidity above 81%, and humidity has been well below that, around 50% or 60%, for weeks now.

Meanwhile, the poundland KGB carries on

I see that I was not alone when I blogged about the truly absurd over-reaction of some police during the “lockdown”. Now many msm reports, as well as those on Twitter, show police going well beyond both commonsense and their own powers (even beyond the new powers granted to them). Leading QCs and others have joined in. Good.

One of Britain’s most decorated judges, Lord Sumption, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2018, also criticised Derbyshire Police for having ‘shamed our policing traditions’ after the force chased walkers with drones.

He added: ‘The tradition of policing in this country is that policemen are citizens in uniform, they are not members of a disciplined hierarchy operating just at the Government’s command.

Yet in some parts of the country the police have been trying to stop people from doing things like travelling to take exercise in the open country which are not contrary to the regulations simply because ministers have said that they would prefer us not to.

The police have no power to enforce ministers’ preferences but only legal regulations which don’t go anything like as far as the Government’s guidance.

‘I have to say that the behaviour of Derbyshire Police in trying to shame people in using their undoubted right to travel to take exercise in the country and wrecking beauty spots in the fells so people don’t want to go there is frankly disgraceful.

This is what a police state is like. It’s a state in which the Government can issue orders or express preferences with no legal authority and the police will enforce ministers’ wishes.'”

[Lord Sumption, retired Supreme Court justice]

Greedy farmer

Ha ha! Someone called Tom Bradshaw, Vice-President of the National Farmers’ Union, heard on BBC Radio 4 Farming Today. Wants people, furloughed because of Coronavirus, to pick fruit and vegetables for low pay or for free, as some kind of civic duty! I can’t get over British farmers! When it suits them, they are brave independent farming business people who should be free to do as they wish; but at other times, they want people to volunteer to work for little or nothing, want to be featherbedded and subsidized and given money by government (taxpayers) just because they own land, or because they farm, or because their families have had that lifestyle for XYZ years…

Can this Toytown police state last?

How long will the British public tolerate this incipient police state?

British people are generally well-behaved and willing to comply with the occasional demands of police and other authorities. Also, in the present “crisis”, the UK public has shown that it wants to help society (look at the huge number who have volunteered). There is the additional point that many people have been, with reason, afraid of getting this latest virus from China. The whipped-up campaign by the authorities has certainly put millions in fear for their lives, though in fact the UK death toll at present works out as being only about 20 people per million population [1 April update: now 26 cases per million, but that may be because the criteria for the *statistics* have changed].

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

In other words, your chance of getting Coronavirus and also even simply knowing that you have it (because most infected people have either no, or only very mild, symptoms) is actually rather small. The chance that you will be seriously affected and have to stay in hospital is very small, about 3,000 to 1. The chance that you will die from it (in the UK) is about 1 chance in 50,000.

If this “house arrest of the whole population” goes on for “very long”, meaning, I think, more than a fw weeks, there will be a gradual rebellion against it unless the level of fear can be maintained or increased. Maybe that is why the msm is being told now that a different method of counting “Coronavirus” deaths is to be used, resulting in a different (higher) daily figure.

You can’t take it with you

I watched a Channel 4 documentary yesterday evening. Called something such as Putin— KGB Spy, something similar to that, anyway. Pretty dull and predictable. Channel 4 is a waste of government money (I had no idea until fairly recently that Ch4 is subsidized out of government funds).

The documentary rehashed the cases of Litvinenko and Politkovskaya as part of presenting a very poor and sketchy biog of Putin. It also examined the cases of Berezovsky and other Jew “oligarchs” in Russia.

At one point I did not know whether to laugh or scowl: on trial, the (half-) Jew corporate bandit Khodorkovsky shouted out about how Putin and the Russian state were acting like robbers, seizing his property. Impudent Jew rascal! He only had billions because he and the other Jew “oligarchs” had stolen the Russian economy in the 1990s from the Russian people, in blatant and scarcely-concealed theft.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Khodorkovsky#First_business_activities

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Khodorkovsky#Criminal_charges_and_incarceration

Berezovsky, of course, has gone up the chimney now.

Life is boring without money, but merely having a lot does not of itself bring happiness.

That documentary, though, said a lot about where Channel 4 now is. It is stale, dull, predictable.

Emily Thornberry

Mercifully, I missed most of a TV interview on either Sky News or BBC TV News this morning. Just caught the last 20 or so seconds, in which this joke-“socialist” pig-in-clover (who with her half-Jew husband, a High Court judge, owns 8 buy-to-let properties) gave out a few platitudes about the “necessity” for the Coronavirus “lockdown” (combined with a few fence-sitting remarks about the police doing a good job etc). She, and other pseudo-socialist parasites like her, are a major reason why Labour is in terminal decline now.

Labour insolvency?

As is known, the Jew-Zionist element is actively trying to make the Labour Party insolvent (the campaign started when Corbyn was still, actively, Leader):

The term “bankruptcy” (which, stricto sensu, applies only to individuals and partnerships) just shows that not all tweeters are lawyers!

Still, the Labour Party may become insolvent. The Jews are talking about setting up a new “Labour” party under their control or influence. Maybe they should drop the “Labour” label forever and just call their new party something else. The Bund? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Jewish_Labour_Bund

Coronavirus oddity

I notice that the UK has had about twice the number of confirmed cases as has had Turkey, but the death toll in the UK in absolute terms is about 9x more: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

In other words, the death rate from Coronavirus in the UK is about 4x or so higher than that in Turkey.

Reason(s)? I suppose that the main one is likely to be that Turkey is demographically a younger country than the UK. Persons under 14 make up a quarter of the population (in the UK 18%) and persons over 65 only 7% (in the UK, 16%):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey#Demographics

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom#Demographics

Coronavirus is (and, yes, I know that there are exceptions) basically an old person’s condition and fatal Coronavirus a very old person’s condition.

Idiotic magistrate

A defendant who is obviously a minor public nuisance with a mental problem. The penalty for his minor crime (minor unless you are an hysteric) was, however, excessive, in my view (read the report below). Also, the parting shot by the Chairman of the lay bench betrayed a wrong attitude:

Mackie, who receives £50 per week in benefits, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £135 costs. He agreed to pay off the fine at £5 per week. “I hope that really hurts you,” said the chair of the bench.” [Daily Mirror]

Labour’s terminal decline continues

Further to my comment about pig-in-clover “Labour” careerist Emily Thornberry, above, I have just seen this:

It looks as though most people would not vote Labour even if it were the only party standing!

I myself, of course, have never been a supporter of any of the System parties. Objectively, the Jews really did a job on Labour as soon as relatively anti-Zionist Jeremy Corbyn took the reins of leadership in 2015. That Jewish campaign was instrumental in Labour’s defeat in the 2019 General Election.

Labour might even have won, to the extent of at least achieving a plurality of Commons seats, had that Jewish campaign not been carried on in the msm (and social media, but the TV and Press were more important). The Jews from the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake “charity” even boasted about it, openly:

Now the Jews want blood from Labour and have made a complaint to the police-state Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Former MP Ruth Smeeth (also formerly a “strictly protected” “confidential contact” of the US Embassy in London and official of Israeli propagada outfit BICOM).

The BNP, in 2010, was the last political party to be “investigated” by the EHRC. Such matters cost parties a great deal of money, which is why the Jews do it, to bleed parties dry.

The Jewish campaign against Labour has had a number of results. One is that we now have a government which is scarcely even British, and is mindblowingly incompetent, but is, perhaps because of that, willing to take bold measures, “going in where the angels fear to tread”. The result of that is that Labour, disunited, deflated, effectively leaderless, has become a total irrelevance, unable even to pretend to oppose the Government.

Look at that poll (above). Conservative Party– 54%. 54%! When was any party that high in the polls? I looked it up. It was in June 1997, a month after the General Election of that year, the party was Labour and the figure was 62%! Sic transit gloria mundi…

In fact, the previous high was in April 1990. Labour again, on 56%. I was unable to access all the figures for previous decades, but the Conservative-led National Government achieved 54% in 1939, just before the start of the disastrous war against the German Reich.

I am now 63. I was born in 1956. I have been interested in politics since 1966 and in UK party politics intermittently since then and particularly since the early 1970s.

I do not think that, even in the days of Michael Foot, that ghastly little hypocrite, Labour has ever been quite so irrelevant, sidelined and without influence as it now is.

The Conservatives continue to ride high, not from their own merit, but because there is no real political opposition to them now. Not from Labour, even less from the LibDems, who will disappear very soon. A social-national party must emerge in England and Wales. It may not get the support of 54% of the people prior to its victory, but it might get 34% or 24% and, in a situation of continuing crisis, that might be enough to seize power, if it is a tightly-controlled vanguard.

Talk about “gene types”! Look at this Jew!

The late and unlamented Leon Brittan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Brittan]? in fact, not so.

Interesting to note the strong tribal identity, though.

Evening foray

Went to Waitrose. Arrived an hour before close and read in the car for a while. Not many shoppers, but I noticed that every single one leaving the store had a pack of loo paper! Presumably, they are now limited to one pack.

Inside, the Handmaid’s Tale militia (Waitrose marshals), in their black clothing and woollen hats and scarves etc, were there but not so obvious as before. I did not notice whether the loo paper shelves were still being stripped (not when I last attended, 2 days ago), but dried pasta was mainly gone (obviously not for immediate use, because the fresh stuff was there in quantity). Kitchen roll plentiful, but limited to one pack per shopper; eggs also limited to one pack per shopper, the shelves largely but not entirely empty. The ones left were mostly the more expensive ones, such as Clarence Court Cotswold Old Legbar eggs. Everything else (except flour) seemed to be in good supply.

On leaving Waitrose’s precincts, I noticed that a police transit-type van was cruising around. There is a general atmosphere of slight unease now.

A final thought. Driving back to my humble home, I noticed again that there were more birds about or at least crossing my path. I had to brake, even at slow speeds, a couple of times. The increase in visibility of birds on or around roads was especially noticeable in semi-rural and suburbanized roads (as compared to rural lanes). In a way, a hopeful sign. Nature returns as humans pull back or disappear.

Bullying police retiree goes mad about Coronavirus enforcement

Look at this bully!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8160767/Former-police-chief-says-officers-fire-tasers-people-ignore-coronavirus-lockdown.html

He wants police to taser people who refuse to “comply” with police “orders” (by going home at once, instead of walking peacefully in parks etc). He says that those people (i.e. ordinary citizens, who pay for the police, by the way…) should then (after having been tasered) also have baton rounds (ie “rubber bullets” about 5 inches long) fired at them. The idiot (a former senior police officer in London, who was later one of those useless “Police and Crime Commissioner” wastes of space) ends his rant (on LBC radio) by wishing that the police could “beat people with long sticks” as in India (he is referring to a long thin baton used in India by their police, and called a lahti).

Who is this? One Kevin Hurley, who narrowly won the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner election in 2012 but lost badly in 2016 after his 4 years in (well-paid) office had proven disastrous: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrey_Police_and_Crime_Commissioner#2016_election

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Hurley

He had been criticized by then Home Secretary Theresa May. He had also remarked (perhaps understandably, but inappropriately) that he wanted to “batter and break the legs” of one criminal: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-35793654

This is a good example of the madness that is now abroad, with police shouting hysterically at completely harmless members of the public because they are walking alone or with spouses etc in the open air, or driving —again completely harmlessly— along highways or motorways. Screw them! This is not (yet) North Korea.

There is an element in the UK, in the police, on Twitter etc, which is the 2020 re-emergence of the WW2 busybodies who volunteered to walk around urban and suburban areas yelling “put that light out!” etc (a complete waste of time, because the Luftwaffe had this thing called “navigation”…).

Latest Coronavirus forecast

The latest forecasts are that the number of deaths from Coronavirus in the UK might be as low as 5,000, far from the 250,000+ many were predicting (some quite recent estimates were as high as 800,000!).

If that is so, and if something like the 5,000 estimate turns out to be accurate, we shall never know whether that result was because of the strict “lockdown” regime imposed, or or other reason. In the meantime, it is clear that the “lockdown” has given the coup de grace to much of the already-struggling UK economy. I shall be blogging separately about that.

So far, the death toll in the UK (attributed to the virus) is below 1,000.

It struck me very forcibly that, in Wuhan, the epicentre of the pandemic, and where the Coronavirus situation may now have passed, only 3% of people ever caught the virus, about 85,000 (confirmed cases). True, 3,000-4,000 still died, but one has to remember the size of Wuhan, the 9th-largest city in China. We are talking about a city as populous as London, in broad terms. 11 million inhabitants. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuhan

a view of a city: The city of 11m people is where Covid-19 first emerged (AFP via Getty Images)

11,000 people a week die (from all causes) in the UK.

Coronavirus deaths in UK likely to end at about 5,700 in toto

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-uk-death-toll-lockdown-china-imperial-college-a4400431.html

We shall never know whether, or to what extent, that is the result of the extreme measures now in place.

Hypocrite of the day

The Transport Secretary, the Jew Grant Shapps, a “businessman” who owns two private planes, now says that British people will have to give up private cars and move to using buses, trams, trains, or start to cycle and walk! What a hypocrite!

https://inews.co.uk/news/environment/britons-cars-public-transport-reduce-emissions-grant-shapps-2521249

Is that part of the hidden agenda behind the Coronavirus Act, which confers almost dictatorial powers upon the present government? Make British people poorer, import even more blacks and browns (the Great Replacement), repress dissent and any political meetings etc?

More police bullying

Looks like the thick plods at Derbyshire Police are firmly intent on making themselves despised, hated and ignored:

A man and wife with dog in the middle of nowhere, labelled by Derbyshire Poundland KGB as anti-social elements and a threat to public health, despite there not being another person for miles around!

Ha ha!

A picnic? Did the police shout out “Sweeney! You’re nicked!” as those picnicking bastards tried to reach for a cucumber sandwich or a Scotch egg?
 
 
This really is becoming a bad joke that leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
 
 
DlDHG-_UYAEbPoF
 
Actually, I recommend to all my blog readers that they read the Derbyshire Police on Twitter and, most importantly, the responses. The responses come in two main categories:
  • intelligent people who understand that the Derbyshire Police (and some other police forces) are going beyond both commonsense and the wording of the (new, dictatorial) law itself;
  • unintelligent people eager to enforce the strictest and least necessary “regulations” (as misinterpreted by over-zealous police) on other people simply because “authority” “says so” (as the uninformed believe).

https://twitter.com/DerbysPolice/with_replies

A vision of the future?

Good point…

Why so many Coronavirus deaths in Italy and Spain?

The present estimate for the eventual total of deaths in UK from Coronavirus is 5,700, but Italy is forecast to top 28,000 and Spain 46,000. I wonder why that is so.

In 2015, the Independent published this: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/the-european-countries-that-wash-their-hands-least-after-going-to-the-toilet-a6757711.html, in which it was explained that the nations in and near Europe that washed hands least after using the loo are…wait for it…Italy, Spain and (surprisingly) the Netherlands. Semi-European Turkey, by the way, scored better than almost all European nations.

Which are the highest (gross) totals for deaths in Europe from the virus? Italy, Spain, France, UK, Netherlands (so far). Obviously, population levels differ. Still, there is obviously a correlation in the numbers washing hands and the number of Coronavirus deaths.

It could really be as simple as that.

Overkill?

Obviously, the government, faced with Coronavirus, needed to prepare. In fact, it did not prepare well at all. The response has the feeling of a last minute bodge and panic. Now it is preparing mass mortuaries and mass temporary hospitals. These may or may not (probably will not) be required, but I make no quarrel with such preparations.

As to the police, they have rendered themselves a laughing stock. The Kevin Hurley person noted at the top of this blog post —wanting to taser and shoot and beat with long sticks people harmlessly walking or exercizing in parts or open country— may be an outlier, a ranting bully-type and/or (clearly) a control freak sans-pareil, but many of his colleagues up and down the country have been almost as bad, with their Common Purpose “leading beyond authority” arbitrary and illegitimate decisions as to what the law (such as the new mad law) actually is. The police are now in danger of losing all credibility.

The damage done to the UK economy, society, respect for law and order etc may be as good as permanent. Some of that damage may have been unavoidable, but most was avoidable.

What is really behind all this?

The political hit from all this will not be apparent in its plenitude for some time, maybe not until 2021 or 2022. So far, the government is riding fairly high, because there is no Opposition now. Labour is a bad joke far more than it was before the 2019 General Election. Also, Rishi Sunak’s open Treasury wallet has bought off much criticism and has shot Labour’s fox to a large extent, if not entirely. Sunak has buried the “austerity” of 2010-2019, at least in big picture terms. How long is the open wallet sustainable? That is an open question. No-one has asked anyone to pay the bill. Yet.

Evening foray

Seems that my opinion of two days ago was right: the supermarkets are getting on top of the “panic-buying” trend. This evening I went to Waitrose about half an hour before close. Everything seemed to be in good supply despite it being at the end of a Saturday of (I presume) busy shopping. Very few shoppers were there when I visited.

All the “panic-buy” items were still in supply: bread, eggs, water, meats etc, even loo paper! Only two items hinted at public anxiety: there was no flour for breadmaking. Completely stripped, as were items used for breadmaking, such as bicarbonate of soda. Also, all chickens had gone.

I was only there to buy bread and water, but did buy some other things, notably some excellent marked-down bargains (sushi boxes at 35p each instead of £4 to £7; cappuccino mousse at 15p instead of 80p, some nice pasta and pine nut salads at about 30p instead of nearly £4). So a successful ratissage. Hard to get used to the Handmaid’s Tale “militia” (Waitrose marshals) though, shuffling about outside the store and in the foyer, wearing their black clothing, armbands, woollen hats and scarfs covering the lower face.

I expect to stay home, like a good quiescent “Coronavirus” citizen, for a couple of days now.

The midnight hour…

 

Final thought

The Government is now saying that if the final death toll is not in the hundreds of thousands initially predicted, then that will have been only because of the strict “lockdown” measures ordered. The msm is parrotting that official line unthinkingly, not even questioning it. Why not? The “lockdown” measures were only ordered about 4-5 days ago and have only been effective for about 3 days . There is something not quite right here. Obviously, the “lockdown” will have an effect, but there is little precise evidence so far.

Update, 10 June 2020

Well, here we are three months on from the above blog article. Most the the above holds good. The glaring anomaly is the total of deaths. which in the UK is now taken to be 40,000. However, the statistics are unclear because the NHS has been certifying people who die with Coronavirus (and often also  with another 2, 3 or 4 other “co-morbidities”) as having died from Coronavirus. Indeed, it now appears from the NHS’s own figures that the number of those who have died solely from Coronavirus is below 1,400.

The NHS has been seen to “protect” its hospitals, staff and some patients by simply off-loading patients with the virus to care homes, where tens of thousands have died. Scandal. Despite that, it seems that 20% of (known) Coronavirus infections took place in hospitals, a stunning indictment of the low standards of cleanliness in the HS.

Since I wrote the blog article, the vast new “Nightingale” hospitals have opened and then closed (many without having received a single patient), the ordinary NHS hospitals are uncrowded for the first time in decades (as patients wait at home, dying of everything but Coronavirus),  and the economy is tanking as few people work as before the panic.

The game continues…

Diary Blog, 25 March 2020

Where does the truth lie?

Increasingly, I am finding the truth about all of this elusive. The virus is terrible but, paradoxically, it seems that not many people out of a given population get it and, of those, many and perhaps most do not need any medical care at all. However, quite a number of people are dying of it or at least with it. All one can do is hope that it will go away soon…

There is certainly an unthinking tick-box madness abroad (again) in the UK. Look at this:

A motorcyclist out for a pleasure ride may be a nuisance but is not going to infect anyone with Coronavirus (or be infected) while riding. The police, once again (as with so-called “hate crime”) seem to be zealously getting rather above themselves.

The same is true of people out driving. They may be congesting roads (though not at present, surely?) but they are scarcely posing any risk of infection to themselves or others.

Increasingly, the police in this country seem to be near-useless when it matters— and, when it does not matter, a petty and oppressive nuisance. By all means, do what has to be done to stop infections by this virus, but for God’s sake use some intelligence!

If the police say that all they are doing is enforcing the (new and seemingly not well thought-through) “law”, then that law needs to be amended as quickly as it is being passed.

As written above, the police seem to have zealously gone beyond even the strict “regulations” laid down by the Government. The police tweeted this:

Image

Needless to add, I hope, the above does not represent what the police are pleased to call “the new rules”.

Greta Nut wants more attention (again)…

Funniest story of the day so far: Greta Thunberg has released a statement to the effect that she has been “self-isolating” since her return to Sweden 2-3 weeks ago. She claims to have had symptoms of Coronavirus but has not been tested.

Translation? She has not been in the news since her ridiculous visit to the UK recently, and in fact has become an irrelevance and/or yesterday’s news, so she wants more mass media attention. She (and those behind her) are therefore jumping onto the Coronavirus bandwagon.

GretaThunbergHaterNut

The “caring, sharing” multikulti society…

I wonder what the criminal’s ethnic background might be?

A word of truth…

Another?

More?

The Great Replacement

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Replacement

https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/

We are told that The Great Replacement is a “conspiracy theory”, yet you only have to look around you to see that this “theory” has a great deal of factual underpinning.

Femi Who?

During the long haul of the Brexit stuff in Parliament in 2018 and 2019, the intensely irritating figure of an African called Femi Oluwole was ubiquitous. Now 30, his sole achievement seems to have been the completion of a degree in Law and French at Nottingham. He comes from affluent Nigerian parents who are both medical doctors resident in the UK. Though his Wikipedia entry states that he “has worked in NGOs and human rights agencies”, none is listed; I think that whatever he did (if anything) can probably be dismissed as rather unimportant and probably trifling.

Here is what a former “colleague” thinks of him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole

“Femi” is now in the news (well, in Twitter news at least)  for having been expelled from the Labour Party (which he joined only recently). He is also to be found opining for money (I presume) on the pathetic Sky News talking shop, The Pledge. Other deadheads there include ignorant tabloid scribbler Carole Malone and Boris Johnson’s sister, Rachel Johnson. Nick Ferrari, the very pro-Israel radio presenter, seems to be the main talking head on the show.

“Femi” is just one example of the Great Replacement in action. Another is the now-blatant campaign on UK television (soaps, dramas, ads etc) to show black men breeding with white and usually blonde Englishwomen.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/

This has become so blatant that to see white British families en famille on TV is now rather rare.

Another example

When I was still at school, in the early 1970s, there would sometimes be an earnest discussion on whatever Newsnight’s almost identical predecessor was then called (Newsnight as such only broadcast from 1980). The subject? Would there ever be an ethnic minority MP or even Prime Minister? Well, we now know the answer to the first part of that question (Jews were never mentioned, so they must have been regarded by the BBC as “white”).

The same is true on TV and radio. In fact, the fewer blacks and browns that there are in any particular region of the UK, the more ethnic minority presenters and reporters there are on local TV. This is not reflective of the society, it’s social engineering with a very obvious agenda (cf. the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan).

Fact v. fiction

I have seen things which, though they happened, would seem far-fetched in fiction. This is, in fact, not as uncommon as many think. Look at the 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints, in which old ships and boats invade the shores of Mediterranean France carrying millions of black and brown migrant-invaders. That could never happen! (we used to think…).

TheCampOfTheSaints.jpg

Interesting points

Hitchens is obviously referring to the likelihood that the Rishi Sunak “giveaway” will weaken the pound sterling.

Afternoon drive in the sun, with “Government-approved” stamped on it

Another little (and before any little person “reports” me, fully Government-approved and permitted…) outing this afternoon. Chemist in the nearby town first and then a drive of about 4 miles to a little village shop where —mirabile dictu!— I was able to buy a loaf of freshly-baked wholemeal bread with seeds, albeit at the rather rip-off price of £2. In fact, there were about 30 loaves for sale, mostly identical. Whether that was because a delivery had just arrived (though this was after 1700 hrs) or because the bread shortage panic has now ended, I have no idea. I hope the latter.

Forced agreement

I have no idea whether Peter Hitchens is right or wrong about Coronavirus, but tweeter “Rob H. Williamson” is yet another person who, having himself accepted a narrative, thinks that others who express disagreement, dissent or doubt are “incorrect”, “wrong”, and probably need to be repressed, “re-educated” or punished for not going along with the officially-approved narrative in full. cf. the “holocaust” farrago (and by the by I see that tweeter “@robhwilliamson” is a exponent of the Israeli “martial art” thug discipline, Krav Maga).

A few more interesting tweets from Peter Hitchens and others

The self-described UK “Left”, pathetic toadies of the State

I myself rarely use those all but meaningless terms, “Right”, “Left”, “far right” (etc) as descriptors. Those who self-describe thus are now not the same species as those who might have described themselves thus historically.

Time and again, I see such people almost begging for State repression, censorship, restriction. The Coronavirus situation is merely the latest example. Such people are forever begging those who head Twitter, Facebook etc to censor those with whom the self-describing “Left” disagrees, demanding that employers or professional regulators sack those of a generally nationalist viewpoint, or demanding heavier State repression and stricter laws against the “Left’s” political enemies.

Old-style socialism, in all forms, from social democracy to Maoism and the puerile worship of Che Guevara and the like, died in or about 1989, essentially. What we now see is a kind of powerless rump, which poses as activist multikulti “socialist” politics but is really just a facade without substance.
