We are now, apparently, in the Year of the Water Rabbit. I myself was born in the Year of the Fire Monkey .
On this day a year ago
Quite. What matters is that the people have a health regime that actually works, and which is actually available to people. The NHS is increasingly in a state where it really does not work properly.
That is not going to happen, for several reasons, but mainly because “Jack Monroe” now has only one substantial and regular source of income, i.e. the 635 utter mugs donating to her regularly on Patreon, and thus bringing in tens of thousands of pounds each month.
The propaganda is constant now, now that we are in the period 2022-2055. Look at the idea that people will be paid to turn off heating or electricity. It’s mad. The whole point of having gas or electricity is so as to be able to keep warm, use appliances etc.
…people giving a rentier-parasite maybe half their take-home pay in return for being allowed to occupy some cramped urban hutch. Sick society.
I have been, in the past (pre-2009) self-employed (as a barrister in England), employed offshore (i.e. not having to pay UK income tax), and at other times employed in the UK, paying UK income tax.
The worst of the three possibilities is when someone is employed in the UK, and having to pay UK income tax, especially when having also to pay out to rent a house or apartment, and/or commute, a fortiori when having to lay out money for a long commute by rail, perhaps even —as at times in my own case— for a long-distance First Class season ticket.
Once someone has paid income tax, he or she has those unavoidable chunks taken out: rent, travel costs, costs of suitable clothing, other costs such as lunch money etc. The last may seem small, and not everyone will have to pay for restaurants or whatever, but even a Pret or the like might add up to £5, or more, per working day, say £1,000-£2,000 a year.
No wonder many, especially on modest earnings, decide (if they can) to opt out, throwing themselves on the admittedly rather strained mercies of the State by applying for small State cash benefits, but also having most if not all of their housing costs paid, having Council Tax paid, and not having to pay out for long distance or other travel, nor for formal clothing, for lunches, and for other incidental costs. Also, of course, not having to pay income tax.
For many employed people, once those chunks are taken out of gross pay, there is not a lot left, especially when one considers that those on the lowest income levels do not pay for basic NHS dental work, or prescriptions.
Poor levels of pay in the UK are a disgrace, and poor-paying employers are having their profits underpinned via Universal Credit etc paid to employed but underpaid employees. It’s quite wrong.
In the case of a “poor” pensioner, just retired from, say, a modest or low-level job, that person will be entitled to, from April 2023, about £200 per week State Pension and Pension Guarantee Credit, Housing Benefit (if applicable), Council Tax Benefit, free medical and basic dental, various extras such as Cold Weather Payments, special one-off Treasury giveaways, free bus travel etc; the upshot being that that person might well be far better off (albeit on a low level) than he/she was the year before he/she reached State Pension age.
For younger people, the best option (especially if not paying out for rent) is to get off-grid as far as possible: do work that pays in cash or in kind, or start a small business that pays (eg car repair), use (if you can afford the capital outlay at the start) renewable heat and power via solar, pico-hydro and the like, and keep outgoings small. You do not need the often-useless “advice” of such as “Jack Monroe” to do that. Commonsense does most of the heavy lifting. Cheese rather than smoked salmon, water rather than wine.
True, that kind of “off-grid” lifestyle will not get you a Rolls-Royce, or a Mercedes SUV, or holidays in Barbados; you may have to settle for a £1,000 clapped-out estate-car, and no overseas holidays, but in return you have freedom, and that is worth rubies.
Incidentally, I am not exactly describing myself. For one thing, I am now already 66, and so beyond official “working age” anyway, but in the past have experienced almost every kind of working and non-working scenario.
Those best-off in WW2 Britain were probably not only those with money (who could pay for quite good dinners and lunches in the better hotels) but also and especially those in country houses, who might have had the money and space to stock up on tinned food (as Dennis Wheatley —https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Wheatley—had advised in his pre-war newspaper column).
Such people would have had enough land on which to grow fruits and vegetables for themselves, and might well have the possibility to shoot game birds, rabbits, hares, even deer, and also fish for trout, salmon etc. They could also easily raise chickens for eggs, despite the paucity of chickenfeed, while the rest of the population was rationed to 1 egg per week.
Anyone in a country house would quite likely also have a wine cellar, which, if replete with Claret, Burgundy or Champagne —and adapting Sam in Casablanca— “sure takes the sting out of being occupied ” [or rationed].
Today, the same applies, pretty much. Had I a country house today, I would certainly be stocking up on tinned food (which in many cases is OK almost indefinately from the safety point of view, though only at peak quality for 5 years or less). I should also be reserving at least an acre per person for vegetables etc, and would be planting, or maintaining any existing, fruit and nut trees and bushes.
I should also be filling my equally-hypothetical wine cellar. Basic or bland food tastes a lot better with a bottle of Chateau Margaux washing it down…
When my wife and I did have (a lease of) a country house (on the Cornwall/Devon border, about 20 years ago), there existed a large number of plum and apple trees, producing a quantity of fruit quite impressive, bearing in mind that they had not been maintained, pruned etc for decades.
With war again now looming on the horizon, together with social collapse, I would, were it possible, relocate back to the South West of the UK and also, were it possible, buy a country house (and follow my own advice above).
…and note my blog of yesterday’s date.
The floor is too low. I think that it should be somewhere around £10M. As to the percentage, probably 1%.
Though my prediction for the next general election (2019) was wrong (I thought hung Parliament or small-majority Labour win), in my defence I can say that that election did not, in the event, happen until almost 2 years after the blog was posted (blog— January 2018, but General Election— December 2019). I think that the rest of the assessment has held up quite well.
“This was the moment at which we began the unstoppable descent into terrible danger which so many of us will bitterly regret in times to come.
I won’t waste time here going over the question of who started the Ukraine war, or even why. Most people don’t want to know and refuse to think about it, or to look up the facts. They defame and abuse anyone who tries to tell them. So to hell with that.
When the Defence Secretary announced that British tanks were going to Ukraine, not one MP raised any doubts or opposed the move. Not one. To read the record of the non-debate is like reading the proceedings of some Communist fake parliament, supine and brain-dead.
The country where political freedom was born has decided not to bother being free any more.
What we have just decided to do is to prolong and deepen the war. Maybe Ukraine’s new tanks will sweep all before them. Maybe they will bog down. Maybe they will try to take Crimea. Maybe they will soon be taking part in a Victory Parade in Red Square. I don’t know. But if they cross into what Russia regards as its own territory, then do not be surprised by anything which happens.
...there is the real possibility that a large chunk of Europe might be turned into a radioactive graveyard and that American conventional retaliation for this (which will be furious and powerful) will take us a stage further into the world of horror, loss, flight, pestilence and poverty which always follows war.”
[Peter Hitchens in the Mail on Sunday].
The Cold War was frozen, formalized, mutual aggression. The world came close to disaster more than once, but the situation was at least stable. That was hard on the peoples of occupied Central and Eastern Europe, caged by the “Big Three” agreements of the WW2 period (Casablanca, Teheran, Yalta, Potsdam), but actually life there was not always and everywhere terrible— just worse (usually, mostly) and —overall— less free than in the (better parts of) Western Europe and North America.
That was better than nuclear war across Europe, the Soviet Union, and the USA.
The gradual collapse of socialism in the 1956-1989 period of 33 years meant that one of the two main pillars of that stasis collapsed, meaning that outside socio-economic and other forces could start to flow into what had been Soviet territory..
Without Soviet power in place, the whole Soviet system fell apart quite quickly. By 1991, the Soviet Union was history. Western goods and ideas flooded Russia and the newly-liberated or created states. Ukraine was, for the first time in history, an independent state (a simplification, but basically correct).
Instead of a genuine attempt to help Russia and other former components of Sovietism transition to a better society, there was a scramble to rule over Russia, and to exploit its people, taken part in not only by Jewish (yes, and other) interests in the West but also by Jews inside Russia, the so-called “oligarchs”. Some, such as Boris Berezovsky, have died (probably murdered, despite living in the UK), others have increased their security and moved permanently to the UK, USA, Israel etc.
I myself saw elements of that scramble, not only when I first visited Moscow in 1993, and not only in my year in Kazakhstan (1996-97) but also in other ways, e.g. by my sitting (1995-1996) on the Committee of the Central Asia and Transcaucasia Law Association [CATLA], a body set up by large law firms with interests in the post-Soviet states, with UK Government assistance.
Also later, when back in London, in the Caribbean, and elsewhere.
On the foreign policy side, the “New World Order” [“NWO”] tried to take over Russia, and nearly did so when Yeltsin was President. What prevented it was a combination of circumstances: Russian pushback fuelled by wounded pride, Putin taking over as President, the collapse of the dotcom bubble in the West, and the focus of the NWO shifting to its other major interest, i.e. destroying the states hostile to Israel; that was after the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.
The military aid being given has gone from small items of defensive “kit” (in the British military term) to large items of offensive armament, as Hitchens writes. There are few weapons more aggressive in offence than a tank.
I recall being at a CATLA meeting in London in late 1995 or early 1996 when an account was given of a report that day by telephone from Dushanbe, Tadzhikistan, then the epicentre of a civil war. The report had had to be curtailed because the person on the end of the line had suddenly said “I’m going— a tank has just come round the corner.” End of conversation.
As I recently blogged, 14 British tanks may not be much, but the Zelensky regime is all but demanding that other European states provide 300. Still a small number compared with those in action in 1943 at Kursk (over 8,000 tanks in total); however, in Egypt, Rommel’s initial advance on Alexandria involved about 300 German tanks.
The point is that the war is now getting to the point where, in the absence of a ceasefire or negotiated settlement, the Russians either have to recruit, train and deploy an army vast enough and powerful enough to overwhelm the forces of the Kiev regime in 2023, or go nuclear (whether tactical or even strategic).
The USA and UK (etc) are getting to the point where they might be seen as actual participants in the war.
Leaving the huge forces (mainly American) of NATO aside, there is no way for the Kiev regime to win this. Ukraine is becoming a country without electricity, it has little functioning industry now, 20% of its population has fled to other states, and its population is anyway a fraction of the size of that of Russia.
If the West (NWO/ZOG) does not stop supporting the Kiev regime, we are on and sliding down a slope which might well devastate all of Europe.
I shall believe that when she stops taking people’s money, particularly from those who have little to start with, and/or those who are vulnerable (even if they are utter mugs to send “Jack Monroe” anything at all).
Seems that the tweets referred to have been deleted (another habit of the “Bootstrap Cook”).
Another poor and/or financially-struggling “Jack Monroe” fan? Oh, no, wait…a dim-seeming librarian from the University of Bedfordshire (is there such a university? Maybe there is). She has obviously not seen any of the voluminous evidence against her idol.
A good description. Worthy of a social anthropologist, perhaps a bit —in manner— like David Attenborough, but specializing in Essex “grifters”.
Quite funny seeing all these terribly “concerned” and virtue-signalling women (mostly women), who are, unwittingly, simply advertizing their lack of nous.
…so tweets a total loony (another “not quite all there” “Jack Monroe” fanatic).
There is no incentive for “Jack Monroe” to pause or stop her Patreon “grift”. After months of criticism and evidence presented, there are, as of today, still 635 utter mugs sending her money, between about £2,500 a month and about £30,000 a month (probably about £6,000 pcm). Why would she stop taking it? Certainly not because a few have threatened a small claim in the County Court. Those few can be paid off easily enough.
If other mugs donate via other channels, then “Jack Monroe” can simply say (or not even bother to say) “thank you very much” and keep the cash, using it for her own purposes, as she has done.
More tweets seen
Ha ha! The presumption of the girl there is incredible. Trying to grift a living as an “online influencer” or something, like thousands of others, from “Jack Monroe” and Owen Jones, through Julia Grace Patterson and others of that type, and right down to “who she?” types like the one in that tweet. She should get a job in a bottling plant or something (at least until robots take over completely).
Britain used to be a country that did things, real things, and had people at all levels who, many of them, were solid, even in the House of Commons etc. Now look…
Men (and women) of straw are now around in huge numbers and, if they were just to “disappear”, not only would I not care but in fact would actually applaud their removal.
Ha. Well put.
It is truly incredible to see just how gullible so many of these “concerned” women are, the “Jack Monroe” partisans. She has been repeating those behaviours for years— angrily snarling and threatening, then pretending to stomp off from Twitter and/or pretending to have one of a whole host of physical and/or mental conditions, then claiming to have been “bullied” or “forced off Twitter”, after which she returns within a day or two (and counts up her new donations).
Yes, many rather unstable people who somehow imagine that by at least tweeting in support of “Bootstrap Cook”, they are striking a blow against the hated “Tories”. No so. The “Jack Monroe” assertion “I can feed someone on about 61p a day” (literally what she claims, feeding a family of four for £20 a week), plays into the idea that “welfare” (social security) benefits are perfectly adequate, or even too generous.
“Jack Monroe” now knows that, however outlandish her tall tales are, hundreds if not thousands of utter mugs will believe them all, and will think her a kind of saintly warrior against poverty and injustice, no matter what obvious lies she posts.
She has claimed, ludicrously, to have been involved with fighting the fire at Grenfell Tower, to have been in high-level discussions about Government inflation statistics, to have been so poor that she had to unscrew lightbulbs to save on electricity, and that she boiled down soap to make shower gel (!). All surely, plainly, lies, obviously so to any but the totally deluded, yet her often-mentally afflicted fans lap it up, either believing the lies, or believing that they somehow do not matter.
I agree with tweeter “Littlegiteshob”. It is absolutely incredible how stupid and guillible many are.
Look at that “@tomcheater”. Does not know what day it is.
The French love massive demonstrations, but such events rarely change anything, not on their own.
When did huge marches in the UK change anything? A million marched against war in Iraq. Result— nothing. A couple of hundred thousand marched against “austerity”. Result— nothing.
So long as “Jack Monroe” has 635 utter mugs sending her a total of anywhere between £2,500 and £30,000 a month, I doubt whether she will feel any pressure to get a job. In any case, it is hard to imagine the kind of job for which she might be qualified, even leaving aside her alleged drug and drink problems, and her peculiar mentality.
Some tweeters are enraged that “Jack Monroe” has (for the umpteenth time) used faked (probably faked, allegedly faked) physical illness or feared illness, and also mental illness including suicide hints, to garner sympathy, deflect from her fraudulent or near-fraudulent “grifting”, and also to collect even more money from naive people on Twitter etc: see below
Why tweeter “@Calderpeople” thinks that “Jack Monroe” has no money any more, I have no idea. After all, the 635 Patreon mugs are still presumably paying up, and the Thrifty Kitchen book is out, though I suspect not selling well; I believe around 400 copies, including Kindle, per week. I may be slightly out, but think that each sale gets the authoress about £1, though possibly less, possibly more. See https://www.societyofauthors.org/Where-We-Stand/buying-choices/How-do-authors-get-paid.
That is on a price of £9.99 for the hardback, the original cover price of £19.99 having been abandoned, in effect.
I do think that the msm has almost dropped “Jack Monroe” now. I notice that, apart from the Independent, the newspapers have not much covered the release of the book; a few fairly low-circulation magazines have.
I was surprised to see how small she is, even up against the TV people, who are not giants:
Was someone that tiny really trained (for a while), and as she claims, as a firefighter? To me, that seems very doubtful.
“Anthea Rogers” (possibly “Jack Monroe” in disguise) weighs in:
“Jack Monroe” and cocaine
A word about the alleged cocaine abuse by the “Bootstrap Cook”: I find it interesting that (until recently) she was being supported publicly by the Jewish TV cook, Nigella Lawson, and by the (also Jewish) food critic Jay Rayner, as well as by Tom Parker Bowles (food writer, and son of Queen Camilla).
As for Nigella Lawson, she has admitted that she has (“in the past”) abused cocaine and other drugs on a number of occasions (read “regularly“?).
Then we have Tom Parker Bowles. God knows what Brigadier Parker-Bowles, his father (who was Commanding Officer of the Household Cavalry and Silver-Stick-in-Waiting to the late Queen Elizabeth), thinks of his son’s choice of career. Not that it is inherently bad, and it must be lucrative, but I wonder all the same whether there is parental disappointment.
Regeneration and transformation of land and landscape
Saw again this video, which I posted on the blog last year:
The lady at Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland was, sadly, persuaded by notorious Jew Twitter-troll Ben Gidley, under one of his aliases, to block me on Twitter, some years ago. No matter. I still think her work interesting. #MoralHighGround.
[Incidentally, the Jew Gidley is a lecturer at Birkbeck College in London. His admitted Twitter account is “@bengidley”, but he also runs “@bobfrombrockley” and, in the past, Twitter accounts closed down for trolling and online stalking: “@inthesoupagain” and “antinazisunited”. All accounts replete with Jew-Zionism, and mostly with a fake “socialist” tinge.
I am not the only person to have had problems with the Jew Gidley’s Twitter (and other) behaviour. The well-known journalist and columnist, Peter Hitchens, repeatedly exposed some of Gidley’s activities in his own tweets, though long after I had unmasked the little bastard. Others as well. I blazed the trail, though.
[Gidley there hiding behind the photo/mugshot of Johnny Cash]
Other Jew trolls tried to defend Gidley by attacking me and others:
As I tweeted some years ago (Jews conspired to have my Twitter account closed down in 2018), Gidley seems to spend most of his time tweeting, mostly via “sock accounts”, in the Jewish and Israeli interest, and most of that tweeting is negative trolling.
If, as seems, Birkbeck College is going to make a number of staff redundant, they could not do better than to start with Gidley, whose jargon-filled “academic” product is completely useless to society anyway].
Another interesting project:
British people living in tents, while non-white migrant-invaders are accommodated in good hotels, and given money, telephones etc on top, not to mention hordes of Ukrainian ingrates living like leeches on well-meaning but naive British families.
East Germany, the DDR, was very strange; I have blogged previously about my impressions, gained in a short time (less than 3 days) there, in 1988, and while in car transit from then-socialist Poland to the then West Germany.
As blogged previously, I find myself rather fascinated by “contrived” societies, societies which have in a sense invented themselves: the DDR, Singapore, Israel etc. It might be said that all societies “invent themselves“, but the phenomenon is more obvious in some as compared to others.
Few MPs are worth anything these days. Most are either useless freeloaders or are actual enemies of the British people, or both (eg Yvette Cooper).
I was hoping, some years ago, that Mercer would prove to be an improvement on the all-too-often-seen MPs who put their duty behind their own financial or career benefit.
Unfortunately, as an MP, Mercer has been a big disappointment. First of all, it seems that he is, at least to a large extent, motivated by money. Criticism has been made of his making a considerable sum from commercial and/or “charitable” activities outside his work and position as an MP. His expenses have also been criticized.
Quite apart from the above, Mercer has had the “distinction” of having been sacked as a minister by the two previous Prime Ministers, first by Boris Johnson, and then by Liz Truss, the latter of which triggering a tweet by Mercer’s wife (employed by him on his Parliamentary expenses, incidentally), which tweet described Liz Truss (admittedly not unfairly) as “an imbecile“.
Presumably, Madame Mercer did not like the fact that Mercer (and so she too) thereby lost a ministerial salary of about £71,000 or so, per year (paid on top of MP salary and expenses).
Well, Mercer is now back in Government, as Minister of State for Veterans’ Affairs (the UK now using the American-style term “veteran” for someone who has served, however briefly, in the armed forces).
I daresay that few would call Mercer himself “brilliant“. Ruth Smeeth (now “Baroness” Anderson) has worked for BICOM, the overseas propaganda org supporting the Israeli state and government. She is, and/or has, also been involved with the malicious and basically Jewish “anti-fascist” org called “Hope not Hate”, and (I think) the even less pleasant “UAF” (“United Against Fascism”).
Ruth Smeeth is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, and was a major part of the anti-Corbyn campaign which, as noted previously in this blog, was effectively a Jewish campaign to remove Corbyn as Labour leader, a campaign crowned with success when Corbyn was replaced by Jewish lobby and/or Israel lobby puppet, Keir Starmer.
Ruth Smeeth is well-embedded in the System. Not only now elevated to a well-paid sinecure in the useless House of Lords boondoggle but also appointed, a while ago, as an “Honorary Captain” of the Royal Naval Reserve, an unusual —and, to me, puzzling— appointment.
In applauding the likes of Ruth Smeeth, Johnny Mercer’s stock, which has been falling in my estimation for a few years now, falls to the floor.
When Mercer was elected, I rather liked the idea that he was a bit of a “loose cannon”, as distinct from the usual yes-men in the Commons. I fear however, that he is, also, not much good, as his having been fired by two successive Prime Ministers would seem to indicate (albeit that “Boris”-idiot and Liz Truss were both also useless).
Support for Jew-Zionism and its creatures, however goes too far.
Mercer won his seat from Labour fairly narrowly in 2015, getting 37.6% of votes cast; the constituency was only created in 2010. In 2017, Mercer’s vote-share jumped to 51.9%. The 2019 election saw a further increase, to 60.7%. Driving factors may have been the LibDem collapse (16.9% in 2010, as low as 2% in 2017, and only 5.2% in 2019), the collapse and disappearance of UKIP (21.5% in 2015 but not even standing in Plymouth Moor View in 2019), and Labour’s decline (in 2019, 31.5%).
As to whether Mercer will retain his seat at the next general election, in 2023 or 2024, that is an open question, though it seems quite likely.
It seems that Therese Coffey, the appalling woman presently Secretary of State for the DWP, is likely to be appointed Secretary of State for Health (assuming a Liz Truss premiership— we shall know about that later today).
Incidentally, that book was written by 5 MPs, of whom only 2 (Liz Truss, Chris Skidmore) are full European, the others being Kwasi Kwarteng (Ghanaian origin), Priti Patel (East African Indian origin), Dominic Raab (half-Jew).
Then we have Ben Wallace, Defence Secretary since 2019 on the strength of having been a captain in the Scots Guards. Seems to think (after a few whiskys) that the now-pitiful British armed forces can take on Russia (in a nuclear war?) and “win”.
Wallace’s actual words were to the effect that the Scots Guards had “kicked the [backside]” of Nikolai I of Russia in the Crimean War (about 170 years ago) and could do it again.
Let us hope that Wallace stays off the whisky, in case he confuses 1852 with 2022 and then, while a little too merry, tries to kick Putin’s nuclear backside.
“Culture— Nadine Dorries“. Need one say more?
“Security— Tom Tugendhat“. Really? The part-Jew former desk soldier whose wife is a politically-connected French judge, while Tugendhat (a fervent pro-Israel drone, closely connected to the Jewish lobby in the UK) is himself a French citizen (dual French-British citizenship). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Tugendhat.
Nadhim Zahawi? He emulates the limpet. He blagged his corrupt, expenses-cheating, tax-evading way into Cabinet under “Boris”-idiot, and he will be clinging onto office no matter what.
Most of the rest on that list can be best described as deadheads and idiots.
Such a Cabinet, at such a time? The auguries cannot be favourable.
Basically, “Boris” Johnson appointed to his Cabinet those MPs with more interest in office than their own self-respect. The dregs, pretty much. What we now see is a new Cabinet which can be described as the dregs of the dregs.
Rather telling, though weakened near the end by a would-be-respectful nod to the Ukrainian woman married to the Jew dictator, Zelensky. Hard to feel sorry for a woman who, with her corrupt husband, owns at least two villas in the sun (in Italy and in Florida), one of which is apparently worth USD $40 million.
An interesting report, which hits a few points or questions many of the ultra-wealthy preppers written about may have considered but not resolved. For example, once there is an existential disaster in society, once your money (whether gold coins, bank deposits, or Bitcoin etc ) is worthless, how can you ensure the loyalty of your security force?
The snake-oil salesman becomes a gin salesman. Well, I suppose that, after all, that other —sort-of— smoothie, Ribbentrop, sold Champagne at one time…
Strange to think that, as recently as (?) 5 years ago, some people saw this egregious example of “controlled opposition” as a potential prime minister. Having said that, and after “Boris”-idiot and now Liz Truss, Farage seems relatively straightforward and capable! Our national life now must lie somewhere between Nietzsche and Kafka.
I shall not be trying Farage’s alcoholic product any more than I would his political products; I have never once tasted gin, and I do not think that I shall start now.
Very interesting, especially in view of the fact that Greta Nut’s main handlers seem to be Jewish.
…”in your nothing I hope to find my everything” [Goethe, Faust; Faust’s reply to Mephistopheles].
The white Northern Europeans of today are an embattled minority, with many flaws but who, nonetheless, are the only community capable of forming, together with the Russians, the foundation for a quantum leap in evolution which can in turn trigger the formation of a germinal super-race on this planet.
“You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in which their bodies have long decayed.
Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will and courage.
You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass your blood on to your children, for you are a member of the chain of generations that reaches from the past into eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent must do its part so that the chain is never broken.
But if your blood has traits that will make your children unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will lives.”

I have blogged on previous occasions about Zeppelins and other airships. I remain convinced that, with advances in technology, they have a great future. Anyone wanting to read my earlier blog posts and comments can search for them using the search box on the blog.
What was that about “sanctions hurting Russia“?…
All so unnecessary, but of course “Ukraine”, just like “Covid”, “monkeypox” and “climate change”, has just been weaponized by transnational conspirators in order to implement a global agenda for the “New World Order” [NWO] conspiracy/consensus.
Poke the Russian bear and see what happens…
“Prepping” may not be easy in Europe, compared to other parts of the world, but is worth looking at all the same. Our whole civilization is now in danger, not from Russia, “Covid”, or even “climate change”, but from parasites within the body politic of the West itself.
I certainly do not agree with “Bootstrap Cook” that the solution to those problems is to “nationalize everything” (though I would not say no to railways, some energy supply, water supply, effluent disposal etc), her tweets here have some force.
I agree particularly with her that topping-up inadequate pay via Universal Credit is conceptually misconceived; I have always said that. It rewards economic enterprises which are poor-paying employers. It subsidizes economic enterprises via taxpayer monies, in effect. Basic Income is a better way to go, for all its defects or problems.
“The devastating impact of Covid-19 litter on Earth’s wildlife: Shocking photos snapped in 23 countries show animals tangled in face masks, disposable gloves and other personal protective equipment”
You still see cranks, though not many now, wearing facemasks. I notice that almost all are of pensionable age. Probably thoroughly brainwashed to do what “authority” says, even though in this case “authority” (in 2020-2021) consisted of idiots such as “Boris”, Little Matt Hancock, “Professor Lockdown” (Ferguson) and similar total cretins.
Interesting, a specialist in chemical and biological warfare. Sounds furious. I wonder why…
…and Jews are not even mentioned in the cartoon. What was that quotation from Stendhal?
“They” are behind most of it. “The usual suspects”. The “you-know-who” (((element))).
If you have not yet worked out that the NWO/ZOG matrix pretty much controls Twitter, you have not been paying attention. Twitter is a massive scam, a con operation that has had untold billions pumped into it, and has scarcely ever, in all its years of operation, come close to turning a profit.
I blogged some time ago about how I was sure that Elon Musk was too intelligent to buy Twitter. Guess what? He has withdrawn. He obviously found out what a con the whole thing is.
Why was it set up? In order to monopolize free speech on important subjects, then to destroy that free speech.
Yes, there are innumerable other platforms, but they are either small and basically of little account (eg GAB), or are repositories (like Tik-Tok) not for significant discussion or exposition, but for blacks, Koreans… whoever…to dance to silly tunes, or for amusing clips of animal life.
Most of the interesting alternative voices on Twitter have been removed from Twitter in recent years, from David Icke and Patriotic Alternative to Katie Hopkins and Tommy Robinson (and others, including me, eventually removed in 2018, after a pack of Jews had plotted to get me out for years).
I favour clemency where possible, so do not necessarily agree with the above, but for 8 years, the forces of the Kiev regime have been targeting civilians in the Donbass region. Terrorism by any other name. Apart from which, this is almost a civil war; it is certainly not a declared war in the international law sense. All the same, surely it is better to keep prisoners for exchange or ransom?
What the voters of Britain, certainly of England and Wales want, but completely unconsciously, is a contemporary, and less military-oriented, form of National Socialism. Call it social-nationalism, “national rebirth”, even “National Socialism with a human face” if you like. A country that is evolving higher in all ways, not degenerating. A European-race country. A country that takes care of its citizens, rather than virtue-signalling and inviting the dregs of the Earth to infest our land.
Multiply that by about £20,000 per person (including NHS services, educational services, legal and police costs etc), a modest supposition, and the cost exceeds £32 billion per year…
How polite we British still are! Try that in, say, Russia or France and see what happens! It would have been amusing to see the cars shown here roll slowly towards the virtue-signallers (who mostly no doubt live comfortable easy lives with their parents in some suburban or semi-rural enclaves), and then just keep on going…
A Victorian phrenologist would have a field day with Sajid Javid’s head.

Such goblins and gargoyles purport to rule over us…
My basic medium-term strategy would be to concentrate as many British/European people of social-national tendency as possible in one region, probably the South West of England.
The concept in outline is clear, the Schwerpunkt or “concentration of forces” at a single point, or in this case a diffuse point, a whole geographic region.
Not everyone can relocate, but a goodly number can, and many would.
I am not going to go into details here, mainly because I have done so in my previous blogging on the subject, going back 4 years.
Social nationalism must exist everywhere in the UK, including the major urban areas which are increasingly occupied by alien populations; the point is that one must have both a “home area” or “base area” and also the (same) place or area where people and forces are concentrated.
The people and groups in the “occupied” areas can draw strength and succour from that base or home area.
We do not know what disasters will befall the UK in the short to medium-term future. War, civil war, economic collapse, even a real pandemic which will kill much of the population.
We must be ready to take action, and then take up the reins of power, if and when something truly large-scale happens.

A small group of harmless bike buffs harassed pointlessly by the UK toytown police. Typical of what this country has become. Note that, far from being ashamed, the police are so proud of their actions that they tweet about them…
That sort of nonsense detracts from the necessary and publicly-useful work that the police (including the traffic police or highway patrol) do.
Our society does not need this kind of millstone round its neck.
No, “being offensive” is not an offence (in most cases).
Any decent society would have eliminated that creature long ago.
The UK msm (and so UK people) often think that the Roma Gypsies (with Romanian or other passports) are Romanian. Not so. They may have been born there, lived there, acquired passports there, but they are not Romanian.
The popular cultural milieu is where the purge must start. Having said that, take the above as a “many a true word spoken in jest” situation. That clip talks about the year 2050; in fact, the USA is already majority non-white, and the UK will, supposedly, be majority non-white by 2066. I think that it could in reality be as early as 2040 in the UK, with the continuing migration-invasion, and the far faster breed-rate of non-whites today, as well o the reluctance of white British people to breed, or to have more than one or two children.
We owe no loyalty to an alien-occupied state but only to our race and culture.
I wonder why? Other names they might take on? “Unthinking Police”? How about “No-Thought Police”? Or simply “Brainless Police”?
It was more beautiful then (1939).
That is quite similar today, or at least was, the last time I was there (1999). Less crowded in 1939, though.
I have written before about “prepping” in the UK or Western European context. Those articles can be found using the search box on this blog.
In essence, I made a distinction between the kind of “prepping” or survivalism appropriate (arguably) in North America, and that appropriate in Western Europe and particularly the UK.
I also distinguished between pure survivalism on an individual and/or small group basis, and the kind of community “prepping” that might keep culture and civilization alive, forming a germinal ethnostate that might later blossom into something that might replace the lost world (the one in which we live at present).
Today, I want to address the steps that individuals can take to be more prepared for what might be coming. I mean realistic measures, not involving disappearing into the Scottish Highlands with a Swiss Army knife and a box of Swan Vestas.
To deal with the least likely scenario first, my blog posts about the formation of social-national communities (also available via the search box on here) covered the sort of situation where an individual or family have the means to buy a country estate, a farm, or a detached house with land or at least a large garden area.
An acre or two of land is enough to feed one person, possibly several people, depending on diet. A rule of thumb might be 1.5 acres per person. So a family of four might need 6 acres, well within the amount of land often found attached to houses in the country (as distinct from “country houses” stricto sensu).
The more one moves away from a purely vegetable, fruit and nut diet, the more land is necessary. A single tomato plant (a single seed may cost from 1p to 40p) can produce 30 pounds weight over a season; in exceptional conditions, 80 pounds weight.
At present in the UK, one can keep up to 20 chickens without notifying officialdom (DEFRA). 20 chickens will produce about 15 eggs per day, so if about 6 are required, you should only need about 8 chickens.
There are more traditional improvements to houses that can help save heat: insulation is one; roof, between attic and main floors, within walls. Another is double-glazing. In the UK, this is usually within a module, the panes not far apart. In other countries, such as Russia and Kazakhstan (where I once lived for a year), the panes are built in, and can be six inches or even a foot apart. They can usually be opened (in older buildings), and some people grow pot plants in the space. In some buildings in central and northern Russia, there is even triple-glazing. Ventilation is via a small window in the corner of each large window, that small window being called a fortochka.
Electricity can also be generated from small-scale hydropower, depending on whether a river or stream is nearby; it need not be expensive or complicated: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pico_hydro. Small and very small readymade systems can be installed for a few thousand or even a few hundred pounds;
It may be worth having a generator which works off petrol or diesel, for short-term emergency use only. Expensive (at cheapest, several hundred pounds, usually more, in the low thousands). This usually requires construction of a fuel holding tank, which is also expensive, and potentially hazardous. Still, a generator may be worth having, despite its noisiness, with the idea of using it for a hour or two per day, perhaps in the evening, or purely for emergency power.
Not much electricity can be produced by human effort, though there are bicycle generators which produce enough power for a light bulb and or small devices such as radios etc while the pedalling continues. A relay of two or three connected to a charging battery could therefore produce perhaps two or three hours of small-use electricity for an hour of pedalling.
Small-scale wind turbines can produce enough for basic purposes, as an addition to the mix.
Traditional heating still has its uses: open fires or, more efficient, woodburning stoves.
Cheap coal is mostly to be banned soon in the UK (for domestic use), but a remote country house is unlikely to be checked out, and in conditions of societal collapse there would be no men with clipboards anyway. It is probably possible to buy a stockpile of, say, 100 tons of wet coal, fairly cheaply now if you know people. The approved kind of smokeless coal costs far more, about £300 per ton.
There are useful items that can be charged by human effort (wind-ups): radios, lamps etc.
There are table and other lamps that are powered by batteries that are recharged via solar power.
The country house owner may wish to install useful small-scale equipment for use in times of collapse: cider presses, threshing machines, nut-oil presses etc. It costs less than you think. Hundreds rather than thousands, usually. Also, the sort of equipment that can produce home-made beer or cider. I tried making beer once or twice when I had the lease of a large country house in Cornwall many years ago. My efforts were, putting it kindly, crowned with only modest success. Practice makes perfect, or as the Russians say, “repetition is the mother of learning” (it rhymes in Russian).
Whatever the scale of residence of the prepper, there can be improvements made.
Water purification is also key, in case the mains supply is cut off. Many but not all country residencies have a private supply. When I lived in Cornwall, the country house had its own abundant supply from a spring. When I moved to a more modest place, a 6-bed farmhouse on the Devon side of the Tamar, that also had its own supply. I read somewhere that somewhere between 5% and 10% of the UK population have access to private water supply. Surprisingly high, if accurate.
Something that almost everyone can do is to lay in extra longlife food. In his interesting memoirs, Drink and Ink, once-famous writer Dennis Wheatley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Wheatley] describes how, in his late 1930s newspaper column, he advised his readers (in 1938 or 1939) to stock up on dried and tinned food. He did so himself, and later wrote that when rationing was mandated (1941), he and his family got through the war far better as a result.
Tinned food is good (in the sense of edible) for far longer than the 2-5 years “Best Before” date. Some dried foods, eg white rice, are OK (if kept very dry) for 20 years.
There is no need for immediate bulk buying. A few tins or bags of rice extra whenever shopping should do it.
People should lay in a supply of seeds, and of course a range of equipment relating to horticulture, as well as small but always useful items such as nutcrackers, kitchen equipment, matches, lighters, tealights and candles.
The same goes for first aid stuff: bandages, band aids (in England, “plasters”), and so on. Painkillers and other proprietary medicines (they become less effective over time, but better half a pint than none…). All useful; we saw in 2020 what happens when, suddenly, loo paper, kitchen roll, pasta, flour, antiseptic products etc become unavailable.
The above should at least be a basis for further research for people interested in mitigating the effects of a possible societal meltdown.
Ha ha. Made me laugh… I recall when I was a trustee of an educational charity some 30 years ago. The unofficial supporters were mostly women, very nice but very willing to talk endlessly. There is a skill to handling such situations.
You can see the likely result, as has happened before in France and elsewhere (eg when David Duke was cheated out of his Senate win in Louisiana many years ago): the supposedly “far right” or nationalist candidate gets into the final two, only for the self-describing “Left” to abandon all principle and endorse the System finance-capitalist candidate, who then “wins the election”. Rigged.
“Will be released at age 36″… I have always opposed capital punishment as such, but it probably will be necessary at some stage to restore order by putting up against a wall a few thousand of this sort. The wider question, though, is how to build a better society, an advanced society. You cannot do that when huge numbers of socio-ethnic degenerates exist.
Jewish academic Lucas Guttentag (Yale) has been chronicling every (meagre) immigration change Trump has made since 2017 to make it easier and quicker to reverse. Now assisting Biden. This is what you're up against, and why shitty populism in politics isn't the answer. https://t.co/LNEp76HvPH
Cause you're wrong, you're the outlier here, and that's why it's so hard for you to understand. We're not compatible. You don't belong among straight, Anglo men and women. This is why we should separate, there is no coming together. https://t.co/sk8BvUfnIC
Another rather dull-looking day, so some wake-up music:
“News you can use”
Useful tips, though not all are applicable to the UK/Western European situation.
The world can be a very strange place…
More tweets seen
More Twitter shenanigans. I noticed an interview with Twitter’s former head of European affairs. Seemed to be a Jew. What a surprise.
In fact, when I was expelled from Twitter in 2018 (after a small pack of Jews targeted me), I had just on 3,000 “followers”, which I suppose equates to about 6,000 in 2021 (the “follower” count increases for most accounts over time almost automatically). The funny thing was that the level was kept (apparently artificially) just below 3,000; had been for some time. Obviously manipulated.
I have blogged about these matter previously. While I usually steer clear of Scottish politics, not having much studied the subject (and having never even visited the country), the overall effect on Westminster is a different matter.
If the presently-ruling SNP, as Scottish Government, holds some form of referendum and decides to leave the UK, as Hitchens seems to be saying, the Westminster government would have a choice: to repress that, as the Madrid government has done in Catalonia, or to say “au revoir” and “see you again“… I do not think that out and out repression would be the right response.
I do not see any need to remove the “Saltire” —St. Andrew’s Cross— from the Union flag even if Scotland declares “Independence”. The Union flag, now, reflects the historical position or record, nothing more.
The effect on Westminster politics of Scotland leaving the UK would be nuclear, however. I have examined this previously in detail, but in essence the position would be that 59 Scottish Westminster seats would go, 47-48 of them (1 SNP MP had whip removed) at present being SNP seats, only 6 Scottish Conservative seats.
It can be seen that that would leave Labour, in England and Wales, up that well-known creek without a paddle. It would be almost impossible for Labour even to form a minority government at Westminster (though I concede that “never say never” in UK politics).
On 2019 General Election results, that would mean that there would be 591 seats in the House of Commons, of which 364 would be Conservative, 201 Labour, 7 LibDem, 4 Plaid Cymru, and 1 Green (leaving 19 others aside).
On 2017 General Election results, the situation would be Conservative 316, Labour 256, LibDem 8, Plaid 4, Green 1 (leaving 18 others aside).
It can be seen the the Conservative Party would have a 60-seat overall majority on 2019 figures, and a 29-seat overall majority even on 2017 figures. Bearing in mind that the Speaker does not usually vote, and that Sinn Fein never take their seats, those majorities in practical terms increase by about 16 in both scenarii. So either a 76-seat majority or one of 45. Unassailable.
On the strategic level, I imagine that the Kremlin would regard Scottish withdrawal from the UK as a windfall of huge proportions, fracturing the NATO alliance and removing, probably, UK/NATO military, naval, and air deployments from Scottish territory.
On the UK domestic political level, it would mean that a Labour vote might be a wasted vote, and that there would be an embedded Conservative elected dictatorship anchored in Southern England. Labour as we now know it would retreat even more into being the party of the “blacks and browns” and/or public service employees, and there would be a far greater chance for social nationalism to go mainstream. On that basis, then, bring it on!
Professor Tettenborn, no less. I do not claim acquaintance with him, though I did sit with him and another person as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” at a student moot organized by Exeter University in 2002, and which was held at the historic Guildhall in the centre of Exeter.
That was my one and only time sitting as if in the seat of legal judgment. My loss, or society’s?
Seems that the UK Government is proposing to do away with anonymity on Twitter and other social media platforms. Oddly, some of the Jew-Zionist element have been pressing for this, which is ironic in that (alongside others) I (who always tweeted from one Twitter account in my own name) was trolled relentlessly by (mainly) Jews, many of whom affected anonymity, though some were eventually exposed in court in cases involving others.
A couple of the several guilty (almost all connected with the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism”) were Stephen Silverman of South Essex, who trolled under a number of pseudonyms until found out (now using the main account “@ssilvuk”), and Stephen Applebaum of Watford/Edgware, who also used a number of accounts (contrary to Twitter rules…) but who now mainly tweets as “@grubstreetsteve” and “@rattus2384”. Both of those named were exposed by the CAA’s own lawyer during a preliminary hearing in one of the Alison Chabloz private prosecutions (persecutions).
Neither Silverman nor Applebaum were ever charged with any offence for such activities. Silverman was supposed to be interviewed by police but weaselled out of attending, helped by “CAA” lawyers.
I have no great objection to the proposed new social media rules or laws on identity. I myself have never been a “troll”, indeed have been the target for trolls. As I say, mainly Jews and/or “antifascist” deadheads.
In a way, I look forward to the exposure of the identities of certain trolls presently anonymous or pseudonymous. A few of them must have fear in their hearts. Rightly so.
“The stars in their courses fight on the side of the just” [ancient Chinese saying].
There he is. Chris Whitty. One of the most prominent UK officials during the past year of disinformation, scam, lies, weaponizing of illness, and the Great Reset conspiracy. Not quite as bad, arguably, as Ferguson, but part of the same lot of narrowly-focussed technocrats.
The worst thing that any nation (assuming for the moment that the UK still is a “nation”) can do is put specialized scientists, numbers crunchers, and administrative medics in charge. The misnamed “SAGE” lot are halfway through destroying Britain’s short-term and medium-term future.
Well, I think that we know what we shall have to do, maybe not so far into the future. It will be hard, and will scar not only us but also our descendants, for generations, but it will have to be done.
Tested positive for Covid earlier. About 5/6 days on from the point in time where I think I picked it up. Only symptoms so far being a dry throat, and a slight increase in anti-Semitism which I've medicated by writing a piece on Christian Zionism. Should be posted at TOO soon.
I like what little I have heard of these “hundred-handers”. They are, it seems, akin to the samizdat (self-publishing) dissidents in the Soviet Union during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. When lies are all the public see, whether in mass media, from the churches, the schools and universities, the police, the corrupt political class, ONE SMALL PIECE OF TRUTH pierces the darkness.
WW2 begins with “Nazism” in history books.
No one talks about communism, or jewish interests, the bolsheviks or anything that led up to the war it always begins and ends with Nazi’s.
This is deliberately done so people dont see who the real enemies were.
In responding to the grandeur of the stars, the only answer is awe.
Where will people turn when the time comes?
I caught the last 5-10 mins of Radio 4 Today Programme. Some fellow whose voice betrayed his smug certainty of knowing “the truth”…That person managed to get away with several meaningless statements such as “populism is Right Wing” (“rightwing” stopped being a useful descriptor decades if not centuries ago), finishing up with the assertion that “populists” were trying to “latch on to anti-lockdown protests” but that would not help the “populists” because it put them in the same place as “the nutters who think that the virus is caused by 5G“.
Well, I don’t think that many imagine that “the virus” is or was caused by 5G, though there seems to be at least some evidence that 5G has deleterious health effects. After all, the public were told for decades that high-tension power lines caused no health problems. Now?
Not understanding why something happens is not the same as something not happening.
Moving back to “populism”, I think that it is true that mere populism is usually short-lived, built as it is on the shifting sands of public opinion. Without ideological structure, a populist protest movement is a jellybag and cannot create anything lasting. I noted that in previous blog posts about the EDL and the “Football Lads’ Alliance”: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/10/09/football-lads-alliance-march/
The sine qua non is ideology. After that, structure and organization. Numbers come later.
In the UK, stormy times lie ahead. The necessity is for an ideologically-sound advance guard, leading a tightly-controlled party. Once that exists, numbers will come and the people will respond, in the right external circumstances.
What group or tendency opposes the existing System in the UK? Not the self-describing “Left”, meaning the ragbag of Jews, other anti-whites, pseudo-socialists, “refugees welcome” dimwits, and “antifascists” (etc). They, indeed, are more loyal to the System even than “normie” “conservatives”! You only have to look at their favourite echo-chamber, Twitter. They want stricter “lockdown” “rules”, more censorship, arrests of dissidents (sometimes even those who themselves are self-describing “Left”-oriented). They support the “rights” of transnational exploitative companies such as Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, and mostly want to “deplatform” those of whose views they disapprove (if they cannot have them arrested or attacked), while themselves retaining the Twitter accounts which are their main focus in life.
The above types are almost invariably in the pocket, in effect, of the Jewish lobby, despite the fact that that lobby despises them. You only have to look at Corbyn, McDonnell and other Labour Party idiots. They were still singing the praises of the Jews, and supporting the “holocaust” farrago, even as the Zionists toppled them and stamped on them! Political masochism.
The weakness of the pseudo-socialists (etc) is made manifest when they want to attack, eg social-nationalists. They appeal to authority in the shape of the officials of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or the police. Just like the Jewish lobby, in fact…
The strength or, rather, weakness of the self-describing “Left” was exposed in the 2019 General Election. Weak as weak could be.
The self-describing “Left” has pretty much given up on trying to create a better society or a “revolution”. Its main aim now is negative: to “defeat” those it opposes by having them “deplatformed” or, in their wildest dreams, arrested by the System police and convicted eventually of some so-called “hate crime”. The obvious example is that of Alison Chabloz (convicted of satirizing “holocaust” fakery in song), but there are several others.
There is every chance that, if a credible social-national party can emerge and survive for a while, circumstances and events might propel it to power far faster than most imagine. There is no real opposition to that except the System itself; the other would-be contenders (the pseudo-socialists etc) are just a wall of noisy squawking on Twitter. They have no power.
Interesting dissenting film seen on Twitter:
Other tweets seen today
Even more or less mainstream journalists such as Peter Hitchens are now being shadowbanned, censored, even deplatformed. First they came for the…”Nazis”?...
You can see what is happening. The international conspiracy first censored and “deplatformed” social-national people such as me (the Jews had me chucked off Twitter in 2018), and anything likely to make people think twice about whether Hitler was “evil” (hence the banning on YouTube of almost all 1930s or “Third Reich” material).
Then came the turn of the “alt-Right”, such as Katie Hopkins, Tommy Robinson etc; and also those with interesting dissident views. David Icke, for example.
Now, we see that the caravan has moved on. Mainstream journalists are being censored and banned. YouTube even took off, for a while, the channel of talkRadio, a major UK radio station, and I believe that some material is still banned.
This is all in preparation for 2022 and “the Great Reset”.
That, then, will be the chance for social-national rebirth. Then, we shall be able to say, “we’re back!“
This is no co-incidence. Look at that map. Look where the dividing line is. Think back to where the Western cabals allowed the Marxist-Leninist control to extend westward: in their plans, to the Rhine, but Sovietism did not get quite that far. Now, with Russia and Eastern Europe resisting, the new plan, in part, is to eliminate at least White European Christendom in the Central and Western parts of Europe.
Anyone who supports the migration-invasion is an enemy.
Incidentally, observe the “smiling when there is no obvious reason to smile” in the very sinister Barbara Lerner Spectre: a kind of erratic rictus, like a malfunctioning back light. Very much a Jewish characteristic, and often seen on TV interviews.
Daniel Hannan: the personification of braindead and/or mad (pseudo-) “libertarianism”. Wants 4 million Hong Kong Chinese to come to the UK!
Wall. Squad. End.
Another of thousands of examples of the Twitter mass purge of anyone not signed up to the “Great Reset” and “Great Replacement”.
Savitri was a proponent of a synthesis of Hinduism and Nazism, proclaiming Adolf Hitler to have been sent by Providence, much like an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. She believed Hitler was a sacrifice for humanity which would lead to the end of the Kali Yuga induced by the Jews, who she felt were the powers of evil.
“Devi was a pioneer in animal rights activism, and was a vegetarian from a young age and held ecologist views in her works. She wrote The Impeachment of Man in 1959 in India in which she declared her views on animal rights and nature. According to her, human beings do not stand above the animals; but in her ecologist views, humans are rather a part of the ecosystem and should respect all life, including animals and the whole of nature.
She always held radical views on vegetarianism and supported the death penalty for those who did not “respect nature or animals”. She once broke into laboratories and took animals being held there, releasing them from being used in experiments. She believed that vivisection, circuses, slaughter and fur industries among others do not belong in a civilized society.”
“Begun in 1948, completed in 1956, and first published in 1958 in Calcutta, she said it “could be described as a personal answer to the events of 1945 and of the following years.” It is dedicated “To the god-like Individual of our times; the Man against Time; the greatest European of all times; both Sun and Lightning: Adolf Hitler, as a tribute of unfailing love and loyalty, for ever and ever.” It opens with quotations from The Bhagavad Gita and Rudolf Hess.” [Wikipedia]
Recently, information (secondhand, but thought reliable) about the state of the NHS. Dire. Not “because of COVID”, though made worse by the extra admissions, perhaps. It is just maladministered, and also has attitudinal problems, not universal, that are reducing it to a “Soviet” level in some respects. There is also the effect of mass immigration, which has increased the UK population from about 56 million in the 1960s to about 66 million today. Huge increase, huge extra demand.
Trump and Presidential pardons
Trump has once again been proven a huge disappointment. Had the chance to pardon Snowden, Assange, and especially the social-national prisoners in Federal prisons. Result? A big fat zero.
Private Eye was worth reading, long ago (30+ years ago), though it always had the seeds of its own decadence and destruction within it. Its creators and readers were largely the kind of people who would like Monty Python, those better at poking fun from a comfortable perch than anything else. The sort of people who probably really like Michael Palin’s smug travel shows.
Like (the now long-defunct) Soviet humour mag, Krokodil. Like HIGNFY. In other words, “approved humour”, fronted by some boring drone like Paul Merton.
In fact, political correctness and “wokeness” has pretty much killed off satirical humour. God help any humorist now who laughs at (inter alia) Jews, “holocaust” fakery and/or hoaxes, the blacks, “Black Lives Matter”, facemask-wearing rabbits etc…
UK slides to insolvency
“Britain’s airlines, airports and aviation manufacturers pleaded for immediate financial support from the government and a longer-term recovery plan after COVID-19 stopped travel and new testing requirements dashed bounce-back hopes.” [Reuters].
Hello? “The virus” did not stop travel, though it may have slightly discouraged it. The governments of panicked Europe and elsewhere stopped it!
