Well, another victory over political journalist John Rentoul. He scored 5/10, but I trumped that with 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 5, 9, and 10, and could not remember the answer to question 2.
Of course, the Brighton bombing was a terrible action. Having said that, merely one of thousands of British or American bombing raids over Germany in the 1941-1945 period would have caused a hundred or a thousand times the amount of hurt, death, and damage. The same would be true of more recent bombings, in Iraq etc.
Readers of this blog will be aware that I am no admirer of Trump, who when President was basically a squawking parrot guarded by a troop of Jews.
Likewise, I despise the fact that, when in his last weeks in office, Trump sat back and did nothing about the fact that thousands of social-national Americans are in Federal prisons. They could all have been pardoned by Trump. They were just left to rot.
As to Trump’s present situation, and speaking, of course, hypothetically, were I in his position I would rally my supporters with a call to arms. Then follow through. I doubt whether Trump will do anything like that, though. He is all hot air.
It is clear that the American political system is at least as broken as that of the UK, and that sinister forces have taken over the academic/educational sector, as well as the msm. Why play by the rules any more? Face reality. There is a need for a second American revolution, on several levels.
So speaketh Margaret Jay, only herself in the House of Lords because of her connections, and because her father was once Prime Minister. I suppose most people who remember her do so because of the way in which she embarrassed the country by having an affair with a Jew journalist while her nepotistically-appointed husband, Peter Jay, was H.M. Ambassador to Washington c.1979. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Jay,_Baroness_Jay_of_Paddington#Personal_life.
How many of these ******* loonies are there now? They seem to infest the Western world.
As matters stand, there is no “Parliamentary road”.
Moneygrubbing hypocrites deserve a good kicking.
Technically, Concorde was a great achievement, but I always had a problem with it ideologically: the mass of taxpayers taxed so that a tiny number of very wealthy persons could cross the Atlantic in a few hours. Concorde was subsidized twice over— in its research and development costs, and in its operational costs (losses). The mass of the British people could not dream of ever availing themselves of Concorde’s luxury —if cramped— travel.
I notice, though, that the number of utter mugs sending “Jack Monroe” money via Patreon has now again started to decline, having plateaued for a couple of months.
Last year, after Jewish TV cook Nigella Lawson commended the so-called “Bootstrap Cook”, the Patreon mug-donors numbered nearly 900 (each sending the “grifter”/fraudster between £3.50 and £44 a month, incredibly). That declined to below 500 from August-September 2022, but seemed stuck at around 480. It has now declined further to 460, as of today’s date. That’s still between £1,610 and £20,240 per month, though.
The same phenomenon is seen in the UK. Report something to the police (I mean a real but “minor” crime, not a murder or a rude word said about a Jew) and nothing happens. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Black hole.
Look at the sentences given out for most things. Very lenient in most cases of “real” crime.
Something in the background is working to destroy normal society. Sinister.
Absolutely stupid. For one thing, many of the worst trolls use pseudonyms either exclusively or alongside their “real” social media accounts.
The poll does show how most of the “sheeple” want to be subjects of a (however fake) “caring/sharing” police state, at heart. I suppose that that came out during the “panicdemic”.
If the present Government were both willing and able to stop not only the cross-Channel migration-invasion but also general and continuing mass immigration, that would be a game-changer. However, since all System parties are supportive of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, that is very unlikely to happen.
Having said that, if the cross-Channel invasion on its own could be halted, so that there were no longer picture and clips of film showing invaders disembarking from boats, that might be enough to convince many voters to vote Con rather than Lab. Maybe.
If that were to happen, Poland must be suspended from NATO before a third major European (and perhaps world) war is triggered. Poland was the trigger for WW2. Most people do not want WW3. If the Polish leadership wants their country to become a devastated and, this time, also irradiated wasteland, that is their problem, but do not expect us, of Western and Central Europe, to back you up (and receive a horde of Russian nuclear missiles on our heads too).
Some people must have been reading my blog! Vive la France!
As of today, 482 utter mugs are still sending “Jack Monroe” a total of several thousand pounds, perhaps many thousands, via Patreon. She laughs at them, spends their donations like a drunken sailor, then pops up here and there pretending that she knows all about “poverty” and survival on little money. A complete fraud.
Thinking strategically, China and Russia together stack up fairly well against the USA. Both strategic nuclear powers, both with large armed forces, both with large populations (in China’s case, huge), both with geographically large state territories, both economically strong in different ways.
Were there to be a nuclear war involving all three (and leaving aside what might be left of this world if that were to happen), I would bet on a recovery in both China and Russia long before any such in the USA. As Hitler said (simplistically but truthfully all the same) the USA is “half-judaized and half-negrified“.
The aftermath of any large-scale devastation in the USA would be social collapse and social/racial war. That happened after Hurricane Katrina, a localized problem. How much more then after a nuclear attack?
“Statues of historical ‘old white men’ such as Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington could be removed from public view in Wales in order to ‘set right the historical narrative’ and prevent offence to a ‘diverse modern public’.”
[Daily Mail, quoting Daily Telegraph].
At what point do we start to deal directly with the enemies in our midst?
Quite apart from the very important free speech issue, anyone who has had to report a real crime to the UK police knows how useless they are, most of the time.
“Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin) once again proving that he is a waste of space.
It may be getting to the point where Russia will have to start “thinking the unthinkable”.
If I am not mistaken, that building was and is not far from where I used to live in Little Venice, West London. It is (I think) either in nearby Maida Vale or St. John’s Wood. I have certainly seen it before.
Ah, just looked it up. St. John’s Wood area. There are a number of other very similar mansion-flat buildings in that part of London.
I agree with most if not all of that. I have given my views on the Lineker storm-in-a-teacup already. My main problem with him as BBC presenter is his absurdly inflated remuneration (somewhere approaching £2M a year). Otherwise, though of course I despise his views and his hypocrisy, he is no different to hundreds or thousands of idiots on Twitter.
As Shipman has tweeted, the views of BBC staff (at least the highly-paid presenters etc) are at odds with the majority of the British people; and as he also tweets, by implication, this is not a “debate” but a war, and the BBC types are on the other side to that of the British people. Enemies of the people.
Note that other tweeter. Ex-ambassador. The FCO, like the BBC, is also riddled with (in the lay sense) traitors to our future, speaking ideologically; persons who want this country swamped even more.
Some of Cole’s tweets are interesting, though:
The tweeter was H.M. Ambassador to Cuba at one time.
That Guardian report on Cuba is well worth reading. The self-describing “Left” in the UK would do well to read it, and be reminded how old-style socialism (effectively dead after 1989 in most of the world) failed and (where it still exists) still fails, especially where the population is mainly non-white. Even Che Guevara saw that:
Another point is that, while apologists for Cuba and the late Fidel Castro always point out what a good health service Cuba has (supposedly), health is, before anything else, an outcome of clean air and water, decent living conditions, healthy food and drink, modest exercise, and absence of negative factors such as excessive alcohol, and/or drug abuse.
A health service is something to fill in where the above factors have failed.
Once again, the police, faced with real everyday crime, are proven lazy, uncaring, and in fact useless.
There are so many now making a living online and even partly offline by simply pretending to be “activists” of various kinds. “Jack Monroe”, Julia Grace Patterson, the part-Jew calling himself “Russ in Cheshire”, some other Jew in Essex, that Nigerian waste of space called “Femi”; the dull “anti-Tory” blonde calling herself “Supertanskiii”. Others too. “Griftocracy”?
Interesting. Of course, the SNP may still be able to keep going as a, perhaps the, major party in Scotland even if “Independence” becomes just a stuffed animal under glass, to be revered or looked at, but without hope that it might revive.
The SNP may have 45 out of 59 Scottish MPs in the House of Commons, but only 64 out of 129 MSPs in the Scottish Parliament, and a mere 453 councillors out of 1,227 in local councils.
Now that the SNP is fairly well entrenched in Scotland, it may decline a little, but I cannot see any immediate collapse of the SNP vote.
I have just read that “A junior doctor in their first year as a foundation doctor will receive basic pay of just under £29,400, with earnings typically rising to almost £37,000 after taking into account payments for extra duties. Second-year doctors earn an average of £43,300.” Not a fortune but, after all, that is just in the first 1-2 years. Some more senior doctors —consultants and GPs— make hundreds of thousands of pounds. The junior doctors do progress incrementally and may even hit those six-figure salary heights before too many years have past.
I suspect that the medical profession (generally) is squandering its credit with the British people, just as the police, MPs, NHS generally, and BBC (among many other groups) have already done.
Other European countries have their own problems, but the UK is just sick now; very sick, in fact. Nothing works properly, there is not merely “immigration” but “migration invasion”, there is no real law and order at the lower levels, and services are collapsing: police, NHS, elderly social care, planning, housing, education, you name it.
For me, the problem with Gary Lineker is not merely that he is an ignorant individual who (thanks to his money, his BBC job, and his army of pig-ignorant Twitter “followers”) can pose as someone knowledgeable, or even wise, and of course “faux-“caring” (his money, of course, insulates him from having to live with the consequences of the importation of millions of backward hostiles and millstones-round-neck), but equally that the BBC pays this idiot as much as £2 million a year to shoot the breeze about football. Why? Why? The whole thing is just ridiculous.
Take away the BBC’s ricebowl.
Having recently seen a few examples of the near-uselessness of the police, that statistic does not shock; it certainly does not surprise.
Ha. Tim Farron must be one of the most “deadhead” of deadhead MPs. I must do a Deadhead MPs piece for him on the blog.
Exactly. I stand on exactly the same ground— the evolution of consciousness, and eventual creation of a “super-race”, a race above all present races, including our own white Northern European race group or sub-group.
You only have to look on Twitter to see that most of the obsessive and malicious “reporting” and complaining, and whining, and demanding, is done by Jews (Zionists), aided in a minor way by a few so-called “antifascists”, who are merely “useful idiots” of the said Jew-Zionists.
Where were those “free speech” people when Jez Turner of London Forum was imprisoned for making a speech in Whitehall urging the removal of Jews from the UK? (I had better not add a further comment, in our “free country”!)…
Where were those people, who apparently want (more) free speech for ignorant loudmouth Gary Lineker, when Alison Chabloz was repeatedly arrested, prosecuted and eventually imprisoned for the “crime” of merely having posted some humorously “antisemitic” cartoons and songs on the Internet?
Where were the same people when I myself was wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred in 2016 for having tweeted five (the Jews had complained about hundreds!) entirely correct and true tweets about (mainly) Jews, and about Michael Gove etc?
The Jewish lobby also had my Twitter account taken down in 2018, and have, on several occasions, tried to have me arrested and prosecuted via entirely malicious complaints to the police (who may usually be useless at their proper job but are only too keen to play the “poundland KGB”).
Everything the Chinese state does is on such a huge scale.
Another example of how public services in the UK just do not work any more. The victim of a bad assault, a woman, had to lie under blankets outside a pub for 2 hours, waiting for an ambulance that never turned up. Eventually, she had to take an Uber minicab to hospital.
Adding insult to injury, the police, until pressed, did not bother to gather easily-available cctv evidence.
Finally, the defendant (finally caught after the police had been pressured to actually do their job) was let off with a suspended sentence (albeit with a stiff financial penalty by way of compensation for the victim).
There was reasonable mitigation, yes, but the crime was both violent and unpleasant in itself and, also, the victim was left with continuing —and quite possibly permanent— disabilities and pain caused directly or proximately by the actions of the defendant.
If this continues, UK society will become a jungle.
Those who follow the “Jack Monroe” saga have noticed that she never, or at least rarely, admits to having bought expensive items for herself out of the monies she has available to her from several sources; she always either “finds” them, remarkably, or buys them for a song (for a tenth or less of the normal price), or is “given” them by friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, or strangers, or has acquired them via “exchange” for unspecified “services“.
As for her having been “in full time work for the best part of 2 decades“, that seems unlikely, but is a question of definition.
“Two decades” brings us back to early 2003. At that time, “Jack Monroe was 14 years old. She left school at 16 (~2005), working in a chip shop and a Starbucks before joining the fire brigade in Essex in 2007 as a call handler. She left in 2011, and was thereafter, for ~18 months, “on the dole”.
So there we have 7-8 years of intermittent paid work, not quite the 10+ years she claims.
Since 2013, “Jack Monroe” has been (it seems) mostly or completely self-employed, as scribbler, blogger, TV talking head etc. To what extent that counts as “full-time work” is an open question; if yes, then the total is about 17 years; if not, about 7 or so, as said.
As previously noted, Jack Monroe both claims poverty, and so asks for the public to send her money, but also says sometimes that she was in poverty (while on State benefits for 1-2 years), but not now.
Since about 2013, “Jack Monroe” has been in receipt of monies from a number of sources: TV and radio appearances, Press interviews, about £100,000 royalties from her several books (most still in print, I think), deals with ASDA and other supermarkets, and substantial donations (eg from 634 —at time of writing— very misguided people sending her £3.50-£44 each, monthly, via Patreon),
It is claimed by some on Twitter that “Jack Monroe” is “downsizing” (as she puts it) not because she cannot afford the c.£4,000 a month rent and other expenses of her present home but because she is buying a new but possibly smaller home; some say paying the full price in cash. I have no idea whether that be so.
At what point do the 634 mugs still subsidizing her via Patreon start to think why they are still funnelling cash to this very unreliable “grifter” and fantasist, who has recently been in the Guardian laughing about how, when drunk or drugged, she would buy four large pieces of furniture in a few days “for a laugh” or some such.
Is all that is required, for “Jack Monroe” to receive donations from naive mugs, for her to snarl occasionally on Twitter about “cost of living” or “wicked Tories“? Even if they are (and no argument from me on that), how does that either seriously oppose “Conservative” policies or “help the poor“?
“Jack Monroe” has claimed to have been working on a measure of how “the poor” are disproportionately affected by inflation, something she calls (from one of the Discworld books of Terry Pratchett) the “Vimes Boots Index“, but it seems that that might be just another fantasy; in short, another lie.
A truth unacknowledged by those born with a silver spoon…
(((Simon Harris))) has to live, after all (I suppose) (whoever he is).
May be useful to people; I do not know.
An ethnic minority carpetbagger in Government will be protected, as far as possible. Others, English, less connected, poorer, would face sterner measures. I recall a colleague at the Bar, in 2007, telling me about a Devonian fishing captain that he had defended, and who (along with his few crew) had decided to evade tax on profits of fish caught. The man was apparently a heroin addict. They all pleaded guilty, the crew got off with suspended sentences, but the captain received a sentence of, if I recall aright, two years’ imprisonment. The amount was tens of thousands (perhaps about £20,000), not the millions of the Zahawi case.
It often seems that the UK now has effectively no border security. Untermenschen from various countries invade our territory without difficulty, and when “intercepted” (ferried to the UK, or met at the beach), taken to a 3* or 4* hotel, thenceforth battening off the British people for the rest of their lives.
The very best that can be expected of 99% of the migrant-invaders is that they will be totally useless; more likely, most of them are criminal and even murderous.
Late tweets seen
No Western news agencies or TV stations seem interested in finding out how the Kiev regime is treating captured Russian soldiers.
Read it. Remarkable even by the standards of Britain’s increasingly useless police forces.
“A woman who took a picture of a teenager who groped her at a bus station was staggered to be told by police that the case would be shelved – due to a lack of evidence.
The force reopened the investigation only after the 25-year-old victim passed on her photographs of the tagged groper to her local newspaper.
When a journalist contacted Derbyshire Police, officers issued a public appeal and within days, Daniel Oakes had been arrested.”
Note that the force involved was that of Derbyshire, whose extremely poor police spent inordinate amounts of time persecuting and eventually prosecuting the satirist and singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz at the behest of the malicious Jew-Zionist cabal, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].
The same force was one of the worst during the “Covid” “panicdemic” as well, pointlessly bullying members of the public in various ways.
Derbyshire Police also has a very poor record in relation to detecting real crime. Not so surprising when you read the Daily Mail report above.
The readers’ comments are interesting. Here’s one;
This is my local police farce. It seems the police are little more than window dressing these days. Not particularly interested in preventing or solving crime. Like with hospitals, surgery’s, schools, councils ect, standards have declined to a level that is totally unacceptable.”
Police are useless as are the authorities. We are now in unprecedented times where everything in our society is breaking down and nothing works.”
As those readers comment, it is not just the police— standards have been declining across the board: police, NHS, councils, central government, exams, schools, universities, you name it. Parliament too. I mean, look at the stupid woman posing as Prime Minister (Liz Truss), and her so-called “Deputy Prime Minister”, and Health Secretary (Therese Coffey). Look at the near-brawl in the House of Commons yesterday. And so on.
What we now have is a multikulti agenda masquerading as “inform” (TV/radio news etc), a multikulti and Jew-Zionist agenda posing as “educate” (including huge amounts of “holocaust” farrago), and a vast amount of money spent on the “entertain” bit, most of which output is not entertaining in the slightest (and also serves that multikulti agenda, e.g. with blacks seen everywhere, even in period drama).
The Jew Shapps. Effectively an agent of Jew-Zionism and Israel. A former youth leader of the Zionist “B’nai B’rith” organization. A “dodgy” inhabitant of the Hertfordshire “Borshch Belt”, who sold get-rich-quick schemes in Parliament, using at least 3 aliases. Now posing as Home Secretary.
The UK could, under a real British government, call a halt to the demonization of Russia, restore both trading and cultural links with Russia, and distance the UK from NATO, or at least be more independent (as France is, with its force de frappe).
Britain would then be able to access Russian gas (via a new pipeline direct to the UK) at cheap or very cheap prices. Britain would see a whole new future open up for it.
True, though Steve Hilton is himself a “three pound note”— useless. I blogged about him, about Dominic Cummings, and about Brendan Bracken, a few years ago:
The System relies on complete or near-complete “control”, which was one reason there was such a massive campaign against Corbyn, spearheaded by the Jew-Zionist element.
Liz Truss, by reason of her sheer lack of ability, threatens System “stability”. She will, therefore, be removed, to put in place a (superficially) better Prime Minister-figure.
Land, the ultimate reservoir of wealth.
Haven’t I seen that somewhere before?
I seem to recall seeing a piece in one of the newspaper magazines (in the days, long ago, when both they and their parent newspapers were designed for intelligent, reasonably-cultured British adults) about Hampstead Garden Suburb [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hampstead_Garden_Suburb], and about how the entire population of the UK (as it then was) could in theory be housed in a radius of 30 miles or so around London, at that density. Maybe 35 miles, now.
Not that I particularly favour the layout of Hampstead Garden Suburb (I knew a lady who lived there, about 30 years ago), but there are worse places to live in the world, or in the UK for that matter.
As Peter Oborne laid out in this recent piece;
and…there we have it:
The ignorant, talentless “ho”, devoid of any real education or culture, devoid of any understanding of the British people, has quit (after saying just yesterday that she was “not a quitter“). Well, no more a lie than anything else she, “Boris”-idiot, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita-Schlumberger and others in the Westminster monkeyhouse have said over the past 12 years.
Ha ha. She will not even get the £115,000 a year all other recent Prime Minister retirees have received (though I have seen tweets to the contrary).
I thought that two months was the shortest time allowing an outgoing prime minister to get the cash. Is that 2 calendar months, or 8 weeks? I do not know.
So far she has “served” 6 weeks and 2 days, so I suppose she might still make at least 8 weeks, and so (?) breast the tape. She has “resigned” as of today, or so the news reports say. Does that mean her term ends as of now? How can she then get the cash?
Reading the reports, it looks as though the official dates will be massaged to allow her to get the cash.
They really do not know their (collective) **** from their elbow.
Naturally, in our rigged more or less binary electoral system, the people look to Labour now, but “Labour” is just another face of the System. Look at the System drones in the Shadow Cabinet— Yvette Cooper, Lisa Nandy, Rachel Reeves. All Labour Friends of Israel, none willing to commit to the Triple Lock on State Pensions, none willing to commit to raising State benefits in line with inflation.
We could be looking at a Labour government every bit as bad as the “Conservative” ones of recent years.
I should imagine that the Conservative Party will try to install someone who will sit as Prime Minister for the next year or two, in the hope that, over time, the opinion polls will swing at least somewhat back to a position whereby maybe half the Conservative seats will be saved. An election now means a near-wipeout for the Conservative Party.
Still, who knows what is really going on behind the scenes, in the hidden ruling circles?
That valete shows a stunning lack of understanding of her defaults, and also a lack of understanding of international affairs. Putin may “menace” the Jew Zelensky and his Kiev regime; he certainly does not “threaten the security of our whole continent”.
Indeed, Russia is struggling to keep a tenth of Ukraine under occupation. How then (even if he wanted to) could Putin threaten the security of Europe as a whole, or even the “near-abroad” of the Baltic States?
Just Stop Oil
Those idiots talk about “people freezing in their homes” but their solution to that is —wait for it— to restrict new sources of oil and gas! The educational system in the UK needs a radical overhaul, needs to teach young people how to reason…
Start kicking them. They cannot even stop you, because they have glued themselves to the road. Alternatively, reroute the traffic, and at the same time spray those bastards (male, female, old as well as young) with freezing water, continuing for hours, for days, until they either unglue themselves or beg to be arrested.
If they get away with these actions, they will escalate their sub-terrorism.
When Liz Truss became Prime Minister, I predicted the following, in such terms: that I would be “surprised” if her term lasted as long as the end of 2022, and “astonished” if she lasted as long as Spring 2023. One gold tick for this blog…
No wonder that journalists, MPs, ministers of foreign governments etc read this blog.
Late tweets seen
Just bought a half-bottle of Lanson Black Label Brut (at less than half-price— £9.19), and may decide to keep it until Gates snuffs it.
At least Mr. Bale’s Twitter profile has elements of honesty (“Travelling the world (again) and talking bollocks. Fortunate to have been at Reuters, FT, News, Microsoft, CNN and CPI.”)
This is not the “USA” (or “UK”, on a smaller scale). It is not even the Jew-Zionist element, not entirely. It is the NWO, the New World Order conspiracy, at work. The NWO wants to not only trammel and control Russia, but to destroy its proper future by enfolding it as another part of the Western jigsaw.
Ha ha. Still, good news that the Swedes are finally starting to wake up.
They are finally having to realize that multiculturalism does not work; it certainly cannot result in any sort of decent society.
“Police should spend more time catching criminals than involving themselves in ‘spats on Twitter‘ and attempts at ‘inclusion’ like dancing on duty, a chief constable has warned.
Andy Marsh, who has been head of the College of Policing since September 2021, said forces should prioritise reversing exceptionally low rates of solving crimes.
The guidance comes as police officers have repeatedly been warned over dancing on duty at events such as the Notting Hill festival and pride parades.
It also follows comments from new Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who told chiefs to spend less time on ‘diversity’ and concentrate on fighting crime.
The police executive, who was chief constable of Avon and Somerset and Hampshire, said: ‘Our new guidance on managing non-crime hate incidents, for example, is very clear: The police should not be involving themselves in spats on Twitter.
‘It is not where the public want the police to be. We cannot pick sides on contested social issues…”
Not before time. In particular, certain police forces (Essex, Derbyshire, Devon & Cornwall, Gloucestershire etc) have allowed themselves to be manipulated and brainwashed by the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which pretends to be a large, important, influential organization, but in reality consists of a few dozen fanatical Jews obsessed by supposed “anti-Semitism”, and focussed also on defending the very tarnished reputation of the Israeli state.
Russia is in turmoil mainly because it lost its ideology when socialism collapsed around 1989. Yeltsin and his Jew kleptocracy could offer nothing to most Russians, and robbed them blind. Putin gave stability and a semblance of national dignity, but offered no new ideology, just Great Russian or “Muscovite” nationalism, a smattering of Russian Orthodox religion, and a nod or two to the partly-discredited Soviet past.
Only when Russia discovers its new ideology will it rediscover its soul, or vice versa. With that will come cohesion, and then unstoppable power.
We have seen the currency news reported as if it was some unexpected event suddenly falling from the sky. In fact, quite a few people (including me) have been predicting it for at least 2 years.
The whole nonsense around the “pandemic” (panicdemic) led to the UK government throwing around money like a drunken sailor, while closing down much of the economy for 1-2 years. Result— misery.
Yes, having a woolly-headed n****r as Chancellor of the Exchequer, a ridiculous half-caste nincompoop as Foreign Secretary, and above all a stupidly ignorant careerist woman as (posing as) Prime Minister, all triggered this alarming collapse in the value of sterling, but beyond all that there is the strategic question.
Britain was part of a trading bloc. Now it is alone in those terms, and the limited trade deals with Australia, Singapore etc cannot replace the main relationship with the EU. I myself favoured Brexit for several reasons, but it had to be handled properly. It never was. The governments of the past 7 years have made no serious attempt to make Brexit work properly.
It is clear that international forces look at the UK, see it being invaded by armies of breeding non-whites, see the UK’s continuing low productivity, see the lack of a sustainable forward-looking plan, and are running away…
To what extent the situation amounts to an attempt to collapse British society further, in order to further the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan throughout Europe, is an open question.
45p in the £ tax
The Liz Truss “government” is still defending the reduction in top-rate tax to 40p in the £. The argument is that the reduction will actually result in more tax coming in, in the end. Maybe, maybe not, but what it does do, immediately, is destroy any sentiment (however fake) that “we are all in this together”, i.e. social cohesion, as the highest paid are given a tax break at the very same time that most people are struggling.
Tax experts, economists etc may well argue that inflation hitting the poor and “middle” is not the same field of argument as a tax break for the rich and affluent. Tell that to the poor and “middle” of society. After all, they are, overwhelmingly, the voters.
So woolly-head Kwasi, as MP, was also getting £20,000 a year for doing very little but being on the payroll of Odey’s outfit?
Looks as though Odey’s bet paid off. A few bungs of £10,000 every 6 months, and Odey has made millions, maybe hundreds of millions, out of it.
Once more, I regret the absence in the UK of any credible — indeed any — social-national party. If my circumstances were different, I would cast caution to the winds and create one myself. Not yet, anyway.
So the storm of madness gathers, with Western (NWO) states, generals, suppposed “experts” all offering nuanced views on “proportionate response” to any Russian tactical nuclear strike in Ukraine (a failed “state”— corrupt, and under Jew-Zionist dictatorship— that has only existed since 1991, and with which the UK has had no treaty or other links).
War games played by the staff colleges of leading powers since the 1960s all came to the same conclusion: any first use of strategic (or even tactical) nuclear weapons in an exchange between NATO and (pre-1991) the Warsaw Pact, i.e. Russia, resulted in an all-out nuclear war.
The question now is whether NATO powers (mainly USA and UK) would attack Russia with strategic nuclear weapons if Russia attacks Ukraine with tactical nuclear weapons. It would be mad. Even within Europe, you could kiss goodbye to, inter alia, London and Paris, for a start. Still want to come up to play?
In fact, Russia might respond with an all-out attack whatever weapons and tactics NATO were to use directly against Russia.
This is not our fight. Steer clear.
Finally, without denigrating Bob Seely, a Conservative MP who was in the British Army, he did serve mostly as a sergeant, so was not concerned directly at that time with high strategy; he did receive a commission later: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Seely.
Seely has also studied these questions academically, and been a journalist (his family owns a large chunk of the Isle of Wight), but are you willing to bet your shirt, your home, or your life on that?
I do not trust journalists, System politicians, or academics specializing in “national security”, strategic studies etc. I do not even trust generals.
Once the UK, USA or any other NATO power (I doubt whether France would get involved, in fact) attacks Russia directly (including Crimea), that’s it. World War Three will be launched. Russia will launch, regardless of the motives, the nuances, the “messages” being sent etc, and we shall be lucky to live through it (if that would even be lucky).
More police nonsense
Looks as though Sussex Police are well and truly contaminated.
Having said that, the Reich would have solved the original problem with a couple of well-aimed rounds…
Let’s see whether the new King Charles has the grit to cut adrift “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and the “royal” Mulatta. I doubt it.
Only because Peter Hitchens and others publicly prominent made a fuss. Others less supported are still going to be “cancelled”, and will be until the officials of PayPal, and major banks etc, are actually afraid to behave in the way they now do.
I agree, for once, with Janet Street-Porter. The whole thing has been overdone. Instead of a quiet, dignified series of events, a mass circus in which good taste and real respect has been —partly at least— left behind.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.
It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).
I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.
We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.
“...a new recession, heralded by galloping inflation – the real thief in the night for working-class people, has caught the government off guard, with a new PM who has everything to prove, having been elected by a small number of Conservative members.”
[Rafael de Miguel, in El Pais]
“The risk is always that the UK ends up not as Global Britain but Little England. This, too, would have been a nightmare for the Queen.”
[Antonello Guerrera, La Repubblica]
Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely
Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.
A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?
The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.
It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.
In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.
The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).
My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.
I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.
I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?
We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.
The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.
This will all look very different in six months’ time.

“It is not the function of the police to patrol our minds“.
Well, I once again trounced political journalist John Rentoul this week. 6/10 as against his 1/10 or, as he prefers, one-and-three-quarters out of ten. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 7, 9, and 10.
I “really”, in the back of my mind, knew no. 10, and —had I thought about it— might have got no.7 too. Still, there it is. I am OK with 6/10 this week.
It does cross my mind as to why the public should pay heed to John Rentoul when he cannot do better than he usually does in these weekly quizzes. I suppose that he specializes in politics, but can you really do that without a good general knowledge base?
As we know, Britain and France gave Poland a worthless guarantee, so that when Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939, the two guarantors declared war on the Reich (on 3 September 1939), despite being entirely unable to take offensive action of any sort.
Britain and France turned a blind eye to the simultaneous Soviet invasion of Poland from the East.
The following 8-9 months was known in the UK as the Phoney War or Bore War (the first fatal casualty on the British side occurred over three months after the declaration of war), and on the German side as Sitzkrieg (“Sitting War”).
If only an honourable armistice could have been made between Germany and Britain either in 1939 or 1940, thus saving at least Western and Central Europe from several years of death, misery and destruction.
The same could be said of the situation in late 1914.
The failure of diplomacy and political leadership in 1939-40 resulted not only in the following years of war, but in what happened in the decades after 1945— population displacement, environmental degradation, premature decolonization, wars and civil wars (eg in Africa), not to mention Eastern, and part of Central, Europe crushed under Soviet rule for half a century.
Now we once more stand before such a situation: a non-state or “failed state”, Ukraine, being supported —pointlessly— from the rear by Western states —particularly USA and UK— , without thought to what might happen if Russia tires of it all and launches a terrifying and world-changing strategic nuclear attack on the West. It could happen. Europe would then have to start over, and rebuild from a very low point.
The best any British person can hope for is that the migrant-invaders will be just useless, and a deadweight millstone round the necks of the British people. That is the best hope. Forget fantasies of how any of them will be some great gift to us, or that they will be brain surgeons, scientists etc. If they are not violent criminals or terrorists, be grateful. I suppose. Or get rid of them.
Britain, though flawed and broken, was still recognizable until 1997, or maybe 2005. After that, it morphed into an alien dystopia.
Meanwhile, black mobs are allowed to roam over Central London almost unopposed. Britain, 2022.
…and keep on ******* going until I tell you to stop!
Africa goes to Washington. Anyone not “agreeing” with the people in power is an “extremist”, and so an enemy. Goodbye, USA…
If that silly woman makes it beyond the end of the year, I shall be surprised, and if she is still PM in April 2023, I shall be astonished.
The political situation at present is that, after three years of shambolic “leadership” by part-Jew/Levantine “Boris”, the Conservative Party is imploding before our eyes. In our rigged binary First Past the Post system, that automatically favours the otherwise despised fake Opposition, Labour.
The absurd LibDems will now probably survive solely because there are millions of people who will never vote Labour but who are now completely disenchanted with the Conservative Party. The LibDems are an easy option for those semi-floating voters, not least because the LibDems threw away all principle in 2010 to form the Con Coalition.
Despite what the opinion polls are now saying, I cannot see Labour forming a majority government.
I was interested to see that Labour may stand down candidates in many seats where Labour usually comes third or fourth. A tactic to help the LibDems.. A tacit admission that both Labour and Con are no longer “national” parties in the old sense. They are both persona non grata in different parts of (even) England and Wales, let alone Scotland.
The DDR (East Germany). As I have blogged previously, a strange state, a kind of facade of a state rather than a real one, as it seemed to me in a couple of summer days in 1988. Yet that state, which vanished in a puff of smoke only a year or so later, was more substantial in some ways than we in the UK usually thought.
I suppose that, growing up in the Cold War era of the 1960s and 1970s, one tended to think of East Germany as being mainly the East Berlin of The Spy Who Came In From The Cold or Funeral in Berlin.
East Berlin, and the Wall, tended to be thought of as looming hugely, not only over Berlin itself, but also over the hard-to-visualize rest of the DDR.
In fact, the DDR, though not huge, and small compared to West Germany, was itself not a very small country; almost half the size of the UK, and about 90% of the size of England.
The DDR was too small a state to engage in autarky. It had no choice but to ride alongside the Soviet Union (and the rest of COMECON). The new Germany is different. more than one and a half times the size of the UK (about 3x the size of England).
What is holding back Germany, psychologically, is the legacy of 1945, the huge destruction and hurt caused by complete military defeat.
The President of Latvia, Levits, a half-Jew, is obviously trying to expand the war. Strange, when Latvia would be one of the first countries to be flattened by any major new or expanded war in the region.
One can see what is quite likely to happen: the military aid to the Kiev regime will be increased, with better and newer weapons, ammunition and training. The Ukrainian/Kiev regime side will then advance, and will attack Crimea and mainland Russian borderlands.
At that point, Russia may respond with a wave of tactical nuclear weapons. From then on, Europe and the Western world would be in uncharted waters.
So the Jew Zelensky has an Italian villa, as well as a USD $40 Million one in Florida? He has certainly not wasted his few years as President of the Ukrainian fake state (or failed state).
O’Brien is a radio loudmouth who imagines that he is terribly clever.
It is an open question as to whether agents of the Kiev regime were the perpetrators. The incident may have been planned and carried out by persons within the Russian and/or Kremlin elite, possibly as a proxy attack on Putin. It may even have been carried out by or on behalf of one or more external agencies, such as the CIA, or even MOSSAD.
Present speculation is that Dugin himself was the target, a theory supported by the apparent fact that Dugin was intending to use the same car as his daughter until deciding to travel separately; that would have been shortly before the bomb exploded.
If accurate, the facts known seem to indicate both that there was at least one hostile agent somewhere in or around the Dugin circle, and that Dugin’s guardian angel (literally) saved him.
Is this somehow connected with the upsurge in Ukrainian (Kiev regime) attacks on both Crimea and Russia itself in recent days?
I do not expect these events to go unpunished. We may be about to see an escalation of the war which will surprise and shock.
Leonid Grigoryevich Ivashov [Леонид Григорьевич Ивашов]:
“On 31 January 2022, during the 2021–2022 Russo-Ukrainian crisis, as Chairman of the Russian Officers’ General Assembly, Gen. Ivashov published a statement condemning Putin’s “criminal policy of provoking a war” and calling for President Putin’s resignation..
Blaming Putin for risking “the final destruction of Russian statehood and the extermination of the indigenous population of the country” Ivashov stated that the real danger for Russia was not NATO or the West but “the unviability of the state model, the complete incapacity and lack of professionalism of the system of power and administration, the passivity and disorganization of society.” Under these conditions “no country survives for long“.
According to Roderick Gregory, “Ivashov believes that NATO is a hostile power, but his experience has taught him that the NATO/U.S. threat is under control and no external threat is imminent from the Western powers.”
That of course depends on what is regarded as “an external threat“. In terms of actual invasion by NATO forces, that is obviously correct, but since the mid-1990s, NATO bases have been established in the Baltic region and elsewhere, and NWO/ZOG-supported uprisings based on fake “democracy” have occurred in various countries around Russia, most obviously in Ukraine.
In my view, Ivashov is right to say that “the unviability of the state model” is the biggest strategic problem facing Russia.
“Putinism” is a clearly-transitional model.
At first there was tsardom; Imperial Russia, based mainly on a society of noble landowners, business people, peasantry and clergy, all under an absolute ruler, the Tsar. That was “viable”, as its longevity proved, but failed to withstand the pressure when the “business” element burgeoned, starting to squeeze out the aristocracy (as in Chekhov’s play The Cherry Orchard), and when a new class, the industrial proletariat, started to push against the old order.
Then there was Sovietism, which again, for all its flaws, was a “viable” state model. According to its lights, it worked. It established a system which functioned, to which people gave allegiance, to some extent genuine allegiance, and which was, however grudgingly, accepted by the vast majority of the population as legitimate —and in any case embedded— for decades.
When Sovietism collapsed, which officially happened in 1991 but which had been happening under the surface even before 1989, what replaced it was a nothing, really, the Yeltsin klepto-state, in which the key people were the upstarts who had been nobodies only a few years before— Jew “oligarchs” (business tricksters) and various species of gangster.
When I myself was first in Moscow, in 1993, there were still traces of Sovietism everywhere, from having a “duty woman” stationed at a desk on each floor of my hotel, the Ukraina (for security, and to monitor the hotel guests), to having to be “invited” to Russia before being granted a visa.
I myself was invited, nominally, by the Academy of Sciences of the Russian Federation, the successor body to the USSR Academy of Sciences, and the people I went to see were based at the Academy of Sciences new building in Leninsky Prospekt.
Those traces of Sovietism were there but fading fast. The “duty woman” on my floor was not the aged dragon of legend but a rather flirtatious young woman who used to chat with me at length. According to her, her floor contained, on one side, “quiet businessmen” (in which group she apparently numbered me) and, on the other side, “hooligani” (i.e. criminal types).
Chechen gangsters certainly stayed there— I recall chatting once to one of their commanders. His gold tooth was very striking.
The state had all but disappeared, replaced by a hotch-potch of business-related and/or crime-related structures.
After some years of near-chaos, “Yeltsinism”, if it existed at all as an ideology (I think not) was replaced by “Putinism”, which was also, and remains, unformed ideologically. A mixture of Russian nationalism, big business, and cronyism, with a few add-ons (Russian Orthodox Church backing, a few gestures to the Western consumer society etc).
Russia has still not found its way to a new ideology and system. Most people in Russia are still looking back— to the old Russian Orthodox Church, to tsarism, to the days of the Soviet Union, or are looking to the declining West as a way forward.
Ivashov’s point (see above) is proven by the ghastly mess the Russian Army has made of the Ukraine invasion. Complete ill-preparedness, incompetence, inability to organize. This is not the army that took over most of Afghanistan in a few days.
From the point of view of the Threefold Social Order, the key weakness of Russia under Putin is that the economic or business element has become far too entangled with the State. The result is two-fold: business imperatives have to be placed at the disposal of the State but, also, the State cannot act decisively because business convenience has led to flawed decisions and to people appointed via cronyism and corruption.
I am beginning to wonder whether this possibly botched assassination was not a kind of 20 July 1944 moment, though not aimed directly at Putin himself: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Valkyrie. Or possibly a warning to Putin, by some part of whatever the Russian Army General Staff now consists of.
Russia needs an ideology, something beyond ordinary Russian nationalism, in which it can believe. “Without vision, the people perish” [Book of Ezekiel].
Fascinating that the Mail on Sunday/Daily Mail online disallows readers to comment on Hitchens’ column. What are the msm manipulators afraid that the readers might write?
At times, the System presents itself as all-powerful, but in reality it only has the power allowed it by the people, usually by default, because the people are asleep most of the time.
That was seen during the panicdemic, when the State and its offshoots (eg the police) imposed all kinds of arbitrary nonsense: the facemask nonsense, “social distancing”, wearing a facemask muzzle in the supermarket but not in the pub across the way, the ludicrous “Rule of Six”, the “one-way systems” seen in some supermarkets and other places, and little retail nobodies suddenly given the power to say “move back a little” or “wear your mask higher over your nose“.
The police were among the worst offenders, poisoning lakes in the Peak District in case hikers might want to go to see them, using loudspeaker drones to bully middleaged couples walking on hills, and so on.
It was actually frightening to see how easily brainwashed many people were, such as the hysterical Welsh farming family who called both the police and the newspapers to rant and cry about the two people from England who had camped on one of their bare and deserted wet hillsides. Apparently, the campers had, in some manner unknown, “endangered” the Welsh hysterics just by being there. However, the newspaper reporters were OK (or did they slip the peasants a few pounds to make it all OK?).
The police were in their element as real crime all but ceased, leaving Plod plenty of time to chase after and fine motorists and motorcyclists taking a leisurely drive on the empty roads. The police were also able to polish their skills as a poundland KGB monitoring social media.
While all the above was happening, large numbers, perhaps millions, of unthinking idiots were out on command every week, clapping like trained seals “for the NHS” (which all but closed down) and the other “key workers” such as the very police who were enforcing the Government’s repression (and adding a few off-the-cuff “measures” of their own, such as examining shopping bought by people to make sure that the purchases were “reasonable”).
There was more. Far more. The nonsense went deep, and most people felt obliged to comply with much of it. Ironic. We used to laugh or shake our heads at the sorry citizens of North Korea or East Germany…
The bright spot, though, is that, gradually, many people did wake up, and realized that the “pandemic” was to a large extent a “scamdemic” and certainly a “panicdemic”.
Eventually, after having wasted hundreds of billions of pounds (the result of which we are now seeing as our economy collapses), the Government pretended that the useless and even harmful pseudo-“vaccines” could be presented as having “saved” the UK from worse outcomes, and so relaxed the absurd “measures” before the public rebelled en masse, which as I predicted was starting to happen (not by violent resistance but by people just not wearing the facemasks, and ignoring the stupid “Rule of Six” and “social distancing” etc). “Yes repeat no”.
Even now, though, one sometimes sees the odd crank wearing a facemask.
I have posted this before, but perhaps now it is time to repeat it:
“Soon, sooner than many imagine, those of us still alive will be called upon to re-establish European civilization and culture. That may be hard and may be harsh, but it must be done. God mote it be!“
…or indeed a “Ukrainian” “refugee“(since 2002, in the UK or Ireland)…
Meanwhile, a pantomime horse has just won the Derby. Oh, wait a minute…
Still, we should be careful about what we mock: what happens in California often takes a few years (maybe only one or two) to make it to the East Coast of the USA, then a few years more (maybe only one or two these days) to reach the UK.
…and some people still think that voting in an occasional rigged election for this or that puppet, or for this or that facade of a political party, will change things…
Talking of System puppets, I happened to see this [below] about Liz Truss:
Looking at Liz Truss, at the sheer mendacity and general dishonesty of the woman, about how she has managed to claw ahead in career terms without ever having actually achieved anything concrete, and about how she basically became an MP on her back, I am convinced that —assuming that Indian “clever boy” Sunak fails to overtake her— she will be a truly rotten Prime Minister, quite as bad as Boris-idiot has been, and will be facing a far more difficult set of challenges, especially economically.
This just might be the time for which social nationalism has been waiting for so long. An incompetent and stupid woman as Prime Minister, public dissatisfaction turning to anger as millions go cold and hungry, and a (so far) very uninspiring official Opposition.
All we need is an organizationally and ideologically tight party core; a start, if you like. Once such a movement develops and expands, it can crush all opposition.
