A small pack of Jews managed to get my Twitter account shut down in 2018, despite its thousands of “followers”, despite its cultural level, despite the fact that many influential persons (MPs, members of the House of Lords, journalists, and some ministers of foreign governments etc) followed what I posted and occasionally reposted my tweets.
I was blogging years ago about how Twitter is a very odd company, one that seems to have driven billions of invested dollars into the ground since its formation. Not a profit-making enterprise, if looked at since it began.
As for Twitter users, not only do many have a number of different “accounts”, but even the genuine ones have far less real influence than you might suppose. You see tweets by supposedly-influential tweeters with 300,000 or more “followers”, and the retweets or “likes” of any one tweet by the said “followers” are often numbered as in the range of maybe 50, or 100.
“Britain’s counter-terrorism programme has focused too much on far-Right fanatics and should now crack down on Islamist extremism, a report has found.
An official review of Prevent – the Government’s flagship counter-extremism policy – has found there has been a ‘double standard when dealing with extreme Right-wing and Islamism’, according to leaked draft extracts.
There were more referrals to Prevent relating to far-Right extremism than to Islamist radicalisation for the first time last year.“
One aspect of all that that I have noticed is the growth in and around academia of a not-very-respectable pseudo-academic industry focussing on “terrorism” and “radicalization”. There are plenty of pretty useless people, some of whom are superannuated students, some with nominal academic titles or positions, some ex-Army, ex-police etc, involved, all making careers or at least incomes out of this farrago of nonsense.
It’s a bit like the whole “security” business; it gives shelter to quite a lot of bogus people, “studies”, programmes etc.
An anecdote from my past: when I lived in Almaty, Kazakhstan (1996-1997), I usually attended meetings held for locally-resident expats like me, given by and at the small British Embassy (where I was fairly often anyway, and which was only about 15 mins walk from my ex-Soviet “penthouse” apartment on the then Prospekt Lenina, one of the main streets).
At the time, not many British people lived in Almaty (former Alma-Ata), and there were virtually no tourists. I think that I was told about 70 or so Brits lived in Almaty itself, in a city of over 1.5M people (the oil fields, which did employ quite a few expats, were mostly around the Caspian Sea, 1,500 or more miles away; Kazakhstan is very large).
Even the Embassy had only a few British employees, along with locally-recruited staff: the Ambassador (who was also First Secretary), the Second and Third Secretaries, and a couple of other people in such roles as consular or admin staff. A blonde girl whose official status I do not recall was the SIS representative, or so I think that I was told. I have no idea whether she was declared or not. Probably.
All in all, a shoestring operation (I mean the whole British diplomatic effort), despite the fact that British companies were major investors in the country.
The Embassy shared a building with the French and German embassies, the Germans taking the lion’s share of space, and paying out most of the cost (the internal armed security, in a glassed-in bulletproof box in the entrance hall, were all German). There were three receptionists, too, at other desks, each with a little flag in front of her: Union Jack, French tricolour, German.
One time, that meeting for expats, held in late afternoon, was better-attended than usual, with about 40 people there, attracted by a notification from the Embassy that an expert in personal security would be giving a talk.
My memory may be faulty here, but I think (in fact am pretty sure) that the expert was even wearing a leather wide-brimmed hat when he arrived! He stared rather insolently at me as he walked past to the front of the meeting (or perhaps my paranoia is showing…).
The “personal security expert” was introduced as ex-British Army (no detail, as far as I can recall), and started off by saying that he had only been in Almaty and Kazakhstan, for the first time, two days, and that every expat Brit he had met had told him that the city was very safe. He disagreed, and then recounted how, the very evening before the talk, he had attended a nightclub, only to trip over a dead body as he left…
Actually, the security expert was halfway right. There were dangerous aspects to Almaty. An American (possibly CIA), supposedly a journalist (no-one had heard of), working for a little magazine (that no-one had heard of), and based (supposedly) in Texas, was tied to a chair, tortured, and then murdered, in a building across the wide avenue from where I myself lived.
Arrests and confessions were made and obtained the very next day by the Kazakh police. The story I heard later was that the KNB (the continuation of the former Soviet Kazakhstan SSR KGB) suspected the American of being some sort of American spy, and so had installed hidden cameras and listening devices in his flat (quite likely; I had reason to think that my flat was similarly blessed, at least as to audio), and so the police, via the KNB, had actual footage of the ghastly crime committed by two men the American had met in a nightclub.
The official line was that the American had met the two men in a casino/nightclub and taken them back to his flat for homosexual purposes. They wanted his money, and his CD and video players, and killed him for that. The Kazakh authorities did not say how they had tracked down the killers in only one day; as to the confessions, a few stories I heard about other incidents make the confessions easier to believe: the Kazakh police can be very rough.
Well, there’s my story. The visiting “personal security” expert gave a few tips about securing doors etc, but I cannot recall that he mentioned my own top security tip, which is to avoid most bars, nightclubs, and casinos in places like Kazakhstan! I hate noisy nightclubs anyway, and managed to avoid them, when I was in Almaty, with the exception of one place I had to attend, once, out of duty. My own evenings when not at home were spent in quiet restaurants (especially a Georgian place I liked, down a very quiet lane not far from my address), in equally quiet hotel bars, or with Russian friends at the small ski resort (just a hotel, a cafe, and a ski lift) of Shymbulaq (in the mountains above Almaty), or (quite often) at diplomatic receptions to which I was invited.
A few times, on weekends, I went up to a place even higher in the mountains, an Alpine-style lodge at Tyuk-Su, informally called the Presidentski Bar, which was actually owned by President Nazarbaev, but was open to the public (to the few who had imported SUVs or at least Lada Niva jeeps, and so could get up there) when the President was not using it. I liked that place.
I have to say that I found Almaty to be reasonably safe then (25 years ago), though I did once have a scuffle in the car driven by an unlicensed “taxi driver”, i.e. car owner making extra money, and when returning from my office one day. Nothing much, I suppose, though my shirt was slightly torn and my sunglasses broken (the driver also suffered a couple of shoves and elbow jabs etc before he drove off quickly). After that, I engaged a former Soviet MVD driver, used by some German diplomats, to ferry me to and from my office, though I still used “wild” cars (and local trolleybuses and trams) at other times.
Safety now, in Almaty? I have no idea. I have never returned.
For me the lesson is to be sceptical of both “security and intelligence” bods and “terrorism and radicalization” “experts”.
Incidentally (?), I have noticed that these various odd “anti-radicalization” and “terrorism and security” academic think tanks (etc), are packed with Jews. Indeed, the tweet showcased above, from the “ICSR” at King’s College (London University), shows that the ICSR is publishing material in tandem with the “Community Security Trust” [“CST”], the very well-funded Jewish strongarm and snoop org. Blatant infestation.
“Doomsday prediction [that] Omicron could overwhelm NHS ‘is flawed’: HALF of patients in London hospitals ‘with Covid’ were only diagnosed AFTER arriving with another ailment, it is revealed as experts and MPs rail against ‘pessimistic’ Sage’s worst-case scenarios.”
Separate figures published on the NHS England website show there were 1,248 patients in hospital with coronavirus in London on December 14, the latest date available, but only 963 of them were there because of the virus.
The remainder – almost a quarter – were being treated for something else and their positive test was merely incidental.” [Daily Mail]
The most likely place to get “Covid” —and much else— is precisely in one of the now-shambolic, maladministered, and unclean NHS hospitals.
OK as far as it goes, but the writer does not mention the “Great Reset”, nor the fact that the “panicdemic” is being utilized as an excuse to launch a transnational police state and dictatorship, complete with microchip “vaccine passports” (to track people 24/7) and so on.
Sarah Moulds, animal abuser— latest
“A shamed primary school teacher filmed kicking and slapping a horse during a hunt has been sacked.
Sarah Moulds, who was condemned by the RSPCA for alleged animal cruelty after shocking footage of her emerged, has now lost her job at Somerby School after she was suspended last month.
The disgraced rider and mother-of-two from Somerby, near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, learned her fate today following a six-week investigation by education chiefs.” [Daily Mail].
Well done to the anti-hunt activist who took the film, without which that bitch would never have been named, shamed, and prevented from having contact with young children.
Starmer and “Labour” have just nothing to say, nothing…
Neither have the “Conservatives” anything to say, though…
The enemies of national freedom riddle the msm.
I saw a newspaper report to the effect that the Queen is concerned that Prince William continues to fly himself with his family in one helicopter. I share that concern, despite not being particularly pro-monarchy. After all, whatever one may think of “William and Kate”, were they to be knocked off the board (with their offspring), the British people would be looking at a King Henry IX somewhere not far down the line, with Queen Meghan as queen-consort. That really would be the end of the monarchy. Maybe not such a bad idea…
I have not watched much of the Budget coverage. Talking heads and/or “journalists” (System propagandists) yapping ignorantly and, all the while, smug MP or ex-MP freeloaders (such as David Gauke) seen on Sky TV or BBC talking about “wasting government money” etc (when Gauke himself —among many many others— claimed for everything he could, including tacky furnishings, TV sets, luxury hotel stays etc).
What a bunch of monkeys!
This Government has, of course “wasted money” (UK’s economic resources): £37 BILLION on the ludicrous “test and trace” nonsense alone, headed by incompetent crony Dido Harding. Something that was not even necessary in the first place. That’s more than the projected cost of even the HS2 vanity-rail white elephant.
Imagine what other could have been done with £37BN. Improving the whole rail infrastructure of the country. New hospitals. Libraries, or education generally (I mean real education, not warehousing children in schools, “taught” by ignorant teachers —very often— while the parents work, or jump through bureaucratic hoops).
£37BN works out at around £1,000 for every working-age adult in the UK. In other words, the Treasury could just have given every person in the UK about £1,000, with better results socially and economically.
To put it another way, the most expensive aircraft carrier ever built, the USS Ford, cost about £9 Billion in pounds sterling, so the UK could have had (disregarding running costs) four like that, instead of the useless, pointless, “test and trace” fiasco. Or might have had built about 37 smaller warships.
When you see that part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer, “Boris”, posing as Prime Minister (forget Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, and the other clowns), you know that the UK political system is terminally sick.
“Criticized“? Yes, but we have seen in recent years what frightens the corrupt and the conspirators, and it is not being “criticized” in official reports.
The “Thalidomide” of our times?
Yesterday, the hugely ignorant Daily Mirror scribbler, Susie Boniface, aka “the Fleet Street Fox” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susie_Boniface] suggested, in a Mirror opinion piece, that “anti-vaxx” protesters should be imprisoned, and generally treated as terrorists. From where did that come? At any rate, an interesting straw in the wind as we approach 2022, the most significant year since 1989 (and, previously, 1956 and 1923). 33-year cycle.
How long before anyone questioning the System narrative and System policies is considered to be a “social terrorist” or “enabler”? Anyone who questions the “panicdemic” narrative. Anyone who opposes the cross-Channel or other migration-invasion. Anyone who questions the power or influence of the Jewish lobby. Anyone seeking a better society. Others…
You can see already the outline of what is taking shape. Look at the Online Harms Bill. Even less free speech than now exists. The Jewish (Zionist) lobby is behind much of the repression.
I wonder what our society will be like in a couple of hundred years if it continues on its present trajectory?

Alarming that the most powerful military-destructive machine in the world is now controlled, at least notionally, by someone who appears to be a confused, semi-demented, and possibly incontinent person, who may or may not be some kind of child abuser. One can only hope that, if Biden tries to reprise Hilary’s idea, and launch a third world war against Russia (or China), that there is some American version of a chekist standing quietly behind him, pistol always ready to administer a quick coup de grace…
Exactly. UK streets are less safe year on year, but the repression of opinion, including online opinion, is intensifying with every passing year.
As the tweeter says, “wealthy“…perhaps in fact not “beyond the dreams of avarice” (let’s not set the bar too low!) but probably worth a couple of million anyway, including the detached house in a pleasant neighbourhood etc.
“It was not painful; didn’t hurt…” Obviously not sufficiently deterred…
What gives the idiots the right to stop other people moving freely? Some weird idea that their actions will force Government to make more house insulation mandatory, or to pay for that? The protesters’ whole premise is nonsense. There is obviously a hidden agenda here, but protesters such as that retired doctor are merely pawns in someone else’s game.
Too many people are waking up. Bring on the talking heads and scribblers such as Susie Boniface, Fleet Street Fox, to call for the imprisonment of dissidents.
Note the police robots standing behind the “protester” (para-terrorist), not stopping him, not arresting him, nor even talking to him; in fact, looking “as if” they are protecting him…
In fact, the police car in that picture is also blocking the road.
Come to think of it, I have seen nothing from Susie Boniface, “Fleet Street Fox”, about treating “Insulate Britain” or Extinction Rebellion as “terrorists”. She may perhaps have done so (I tend to avoid reading her ignorant drivel), but I have anyway not seen it.
I remember watching this, as a boy of 14-15, in black and white (it was made in colour but I had my own huge and ancient b&w TV, with wooden case, and made, I should think, in the 1950s).
Looking at what little is on YouTube, and what (also not much) I can now recall, it is interesting to see the differences between the 1971 view of the near future (The Guardians was set in the 1980s) and what actually happened in the 1980s and on to 2021, 50 years after the 13 episodes of the series were shown.
There may have been those, in the early 1980s, amid the Miners’ Strike etc, who found parallels (the early paramilitarization of some police, and the use of SAS soldiers dressed as police).
Looking back now, one still finds parallels, but also great differences. The first is the relative quiescence of the public now. No, or very few, violent demonstrations, few big marches (and even fewer violent ones) compared to the 1970s.
Now, we have the Internet, and all its issues. That was not a factor, for the public, until the mid-1990s at earliest. The authorities have far wider powers in practice now, and use them.
In 1971, the “Guardian” force was seen as paramilitary, but in 2021 the forces of repression use plainclothes operatives (mostly), and not decrees (as such) but “laws” nodded through by a rubberstamp Parliament— look at the Online Harms Bill being put through Parliament right now, and with no resistance at all from a useless “Opposition” led by a Jewish-lobby puppet.
Also, 1971 people would not have taken seriously the idea that a virus which (supposedly) kills about 1 in 1,000 of the population would enable the UK Government to impose wide-ranging curbs on the most basic civil liberties (eg freedom to travel —even by car— in 2020); or that the kind of people who were most likely to resist actively in 1971 would become, in 2021, virtue-signalling “we’re good citizens, we are” serfs.
Interesting short documentary about the Afrika Korps in Libya and French Equatorial Africa (now, Chad, in part) in the early 1940s

‘I was terrified when I found out,’ recalls Dr Randall. ‘I had visions of being investigated by MI5, of men coming to my house at dawn and knocking down the front door. What was I supposed to tell my family? It was crazy.” [Daily Mail]

The UK, a country in which, in recent years, a barrister (me) can be disbarred for tweeting five completely true and accurate tweets about society generally (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/); a country in which an ex-soldier with an exemplary record in Afghanistan and elsewhere (Jeremy ‘Jez’ Bedford-Turner) can be imprisoned because he had the temerity to suggest that Jews be expelled from the UK in a humorous speech; a country in which a professional singer and entertainer (Alison Chabloz) can lose her job because a few malicious Jews targeted her employer, and later find herself actually imprisoned for posting a satirical song or two on the Internet!
You can see the way the UK is going. It is not going that way by accident…
If the world suffers great calamities soon, it may be necessary to institute a “revaluation of all values” in rebuilding it.
The old institutions have become corrupted empty shells which are filling with Evil. They may have to be eliminated.
Please refer to my last comment, above…
Note Hitchens’ timescale. 1989…the last pivotal year; the previous one was 1956, the one before that, 1923. The next pivotal year will be 2022, and the international conspiracy/consensus is trying to seize it, and with it the agenda for the 33 years starting then. Inter alia, the “Great Reset”, and with it, “the Great Replacement” of people in Europe and elsewhere.
These people should be on our side!
There is no point in refighting the war of 1939-45 (on the Eastern Front, mainly 1941-45). The Reich has passed into history, but so has the Soviet Union, and indeed Sovietism itself. We are where we are. Let’s build a new world together!
…and about 95% of students at Oxford and Cambridge now get either “Firsts” or “2:1” degrees. A First was once a coveted rarity. Now? Bog-standard, really. The holders of such degrees may consider themselves highly-educated, but most are not.
…and if that presenter woman is not Jewish, I’ll eat my hat.
Always. Every. Single. Time.
Facebook, “Doomsday Machine”
An article attacking Facebook, from the editor of an msm outlet. In fact, just another attempt to shut Pandora’s box. There is a huge campaign now by NWO/ZOG to shut down even the limited free speech that exists.
What is the phrase? Something like “a waste of oxygen“… We Europeans, especially perhaps we British, are in general and by nature more compassionate than Africans, North Africans, Orientals, Muslims generally, but that does mean that, sometimes, the unworthy benefit.
The truth of that was made manifest in the survival of decency and culture within families even in the terrible milieu of Jewish Bolshevism, and later Stalinism, in the Soviet Union of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s,1950s, and on to the collapse of socialism around 1989. I suppose that the worst time for secrecy plus denunciation was the 1930s, especially the Yezhovshchina of 1937-1939, and then the late 1940s.
In fact, the “Conservative” government “child spies” campaign or proposal is merely the logical consequence of what has gone before (in recent years); it is a continuation of what already exists.
In and after 2010, we saw part-Jew Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, call upon curtain-twitching pleb-Cons to “report” their neighbours who were unemployed and/or disabled, and who might be sleeping late rather than hurrying and scurrying to “seek work” (often unobtainable anyway) in the (((finance-capitalist))) economy.
For years we have seen the authorities demand that neighbours, families, churches, mosques, schoolteachers, even Church of England priests (if there are any left who are not arse-faced lesbians), report or denounce their own families, and friends, acquaintainces, pupils, parishioners etc; not only for “terrorism”, by the way, but also for supporting animal welfare, for opposing mass immigration (migration-invasion) etc. The government even established “Morozovist” organizations, such as “Prevent” and “Channel”, in order to facilitate it all.
More recently, we have see government attempts to get people to denounce neighbours, friends, family who might have exceeded the arbitrary “Rule of Six” invented by Boris-idiot, or who might actually have invited family members to visit at Christmas.
Over the years, we have seen the users of Twitter etc delight in “reporting” “wrong thinking” and “wrong speaking” people to Twitter, or to police, or to others who might punish the dissident. Employers, academic institutions etc. As always, the Jewish element was in the forefront in “reporting” people, though others joined in, particularly the “antifa” idiot-crowd, and the allied self-describing “Left”.
I wonder whether Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer will go along (yet again) with what this government is going and proposing?
The real agenda lies behind the supposed reasons for the “reporting” campaigns; to create a serf or slave society somewhere down the line.
Final thought (for today) on all that: remember what happened to Pavel Morozov. After all, if you play by Moscow Rules…
What we are seeing is not exactly “authoritarianism” but the infantilism of, mostly, the self-describing “Left”, who just want to be told what to do by the Big Brother State. Those types are the core of the lockdown and facemask zealotry. A chance for them to see people bullied and bossed around, while retaining a figleaf of “caring sharing” fakery at the same time.
I have to admit that I did not like the look of this Brand person much, but if he is now waking up, then I warm to him (at least slightly).
White genocide. The Great Replacement. The Great Reset. Fight it or die (pretty soon)…
Just what I was blogging about recently. I shall be laughing when the UK and connected “antifascist” Twitter-twits are expelled. They have little or nothing else.
A now-deceased friend of mine, acquainted with both Mosley and his wife Diana in the 1950s, always said that Mosley’s mistake was to accentuate the “Man of Action” and military aspect of his character (genuine though that was: WW1 officer of both the Army and the Royal Flying Corps; wounded in action), while playing down his more intellectual side (which my friend thought reflected his overall character more, though in the late 1950s Mosley was, of course, over 60).
Unless the Government simply props up airlines and travel companies (pointlessly), they are finished. Who on Earth will book a foreign holiday from the UK when that tourist (and family, if any) will now quite likely have to spend 10-14 days quarantined in a guarded hotel, and even have to pay for their own incarceration?! Forget it.
In fact, the country where the tourist is booked may also impose some such requirement, and at short notice…
In short, the travel and tourism sector, both domestic and overseas, is totally screwed, as are its huge number of employees.
Incidentally, the whole travel and tourism sector in the UK employs a total of 3.8 million people, about 11% of the entire UK workforce.
Late tweets seen
Update, 22 March 2022
It is actually shocking to see how many tweets cited in the above blog post are now “cancelled” by Twitter. Free speech hardly exists any more.
I am often critical of (some) farmers and of both their behaviour and attitudes, but it is not an unmixed picture by any means.
It becomes very obvious that “the virus” is being used, being weaponized. Coronavirus or “Covid-19” has killed about 1 out of every 1,400 people in the UK. More accurately, it has killed 1 out of every 1,400 people, who have mostly been over 80 and who mostly had several other serious conditions. Even leaving all that aside, it still means that 1,399 people out of 1,400 in the UK have either not had “Covid-19”, or have had it and survived (usually without ever having noticed that they were infected).
International organizations, such as the World Economic Forum, have openly proclaimed the virus situation as an “opportunity” for a “Great Reset” of world society.
The populations of Europe, USA etc are being taken for a ride.
“Ain’t that the truth?”…not only about Jewish talking head Portes, though. The general point is also true. Fake or supposed “professors” are everywhere now. At one time, “Professor” was an esteemed rank or title. Now? Well, of course every tertiary educational institute, however basic, is now a “university”. “Universities” need or anyway have “professors”. So now we have not only “grade inflation” and “award inflation”, but also “title inflation”. “Professors” are two a penny these days.
That’s not to say that Portes is always wrong about everything; he was right, imo, about the wrongheadedness of most if not all of the policies pursued by George Osborne, 2010-2015.
Ha ha! Lammy must have been a crap barrister! Unintentional admission implied?
As for the “professionalism” no doubt claimed by “Prevent” and its practitioners or employees, I believe that there are no Israeli settlements in Gaza; not even the most determined anti-Zionists claim that! So not terribly impressive that “Prevent” gets even basic and unargued facts wrong…Unless, of course, Channel 4 changed “West Bank” to “Gaza”.
Unintentionally amusing. Could be applied to one of the biggest —and unproven— “conspiracy theories” of all— the “holocaust” “gas chambers”…
Exactly. Jewish lobby puppet Starmer wants even more “lockdown”, shutdown and facemask nonsense. He’s as much of a waste of space as “Boris”…
“NWO” and “ZOG” pretty much covers the waterfront… Add in “the Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” if you like…
Ha ha! As the Irish are said to say “will ya look at that eejit?!“…
Exactly. Also, you will never get to the bottom of this if you try to apply ordinary party or other political ideas to it. This is not about the outer labels of “Conservative” or “Labour” etc, not even about trying to create a Bilderberg/WEF “one world” corporatist tyranny. That is just part of it.
This is about trying to steer the whole of the world in an oligarchic materialist-dictatorship direction. It is tied-in with occult, evil purposes which reach right down into everyday life, even into family life.
Wealth is certainly part of this but there must be more. I am not scientifically trained (just like “Boris” and his Cabinet of clowns), but it is surely at least possible that the hidden agenda of the vaccines is to secretly weaken the human immune system so that, in a year, 3 years, 10 years, a new virus will “suddenly” appear and wipe out most of the population of the world, who (thanks to robotics and AI) are thought “Not Wanted On Voyage”…
Surely Neil Clark did not seriously think that “Labour” drones in Parliament or outside (or the pathetic self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits) would stand up for freedom and civil rights? They cannot even stand up for free speech against the Jew-Zionist element.
Well, admittedly I live in a “Tier 2” area, but over a whole 9-10 months now, not only have I not known anyone personally who has had the “virus”, but I know, from questioning people, that I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it. Not died from it, or been to hospital because of it, just had it, or been tested and found be infected. Not one.
I read online about people in London or Birmingham who have supposedly had it. I have no reason to doubt at least some of those claims, but this is not, or not yet, a plague. The big headline today or yesterday about this was “318,000 virus deaths in USA”, which (though many did not die of the virus anyway) is a huge number, but the USA has about 350 million inhabitants, so that is still far less than 1 in every 1,000 inhabitants.
That Stadlen individual is typical of many in the UK today, especially those who make a living being scribblers or TV talking heads. Unlike most of their predecessors, they see nothing wrong in censoring views, either directly or indirectly (the latter by simply encouraging the BBC, Sky, Press etc to disallow dissidents to write or speak).
Stadlen has a First in Classics from Cambridge, albeit gained since award inflation became rampant, yet seems never to have heard of onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat, sometimes put more simply as the rule that “he who asserts must prove“.
In the above case, the positive action taken was to institute “lockdown”. That changed the norm. Therefore it is for those who claim that “lockdowns” work to prove that they do. Not merely assume or assert; prove.
What does this Stadlen care? Wealthy Jewish background, well-paid jobs for BBC and other msm outlets. Looks like he has had a pretty easy life so far. No real concern for the millions of British people suffering (and about to suffer far more). Just crocodile tears tacked on to the end of his virtue-signalling.
All part of the “fear propaganda” brainwashing and conditioning.
“Atrocious” maybe, but scarcely surprising to anyone who has seen on TV Anneliese Dodds, let alone Angela Rayner or Keir Starmer. Not that I have much time for Indian “clever boy” Sunak either.
I had occasion to visit a small NHS facility recently. It was a lovely, quiet unit, with only about a dozen or so patients, those patients living, prior to discharge, in several large “bays” and a few individual rooms. The unit was surrounded by flower gardens with small flowering trees and a few classical statues. Beyond that (out of sight) was a very small town (little more than a village) and the countryside of Southern England. If you have to go to a hospital, you could do worse. So why am I blogging about this?
While waiting to go in to see the patient in question, I perused the literature rack by the nursing station. One leaflet caught my eye. I have it before me as I write. Under the NHS logo and the name of the NHS foundation trust running the unit at the strategic level, the title:
[the words contained within a shield device; with two hands –dark blue and light blue (the old KGB colour..ironic) and perhaps (?) representing white and non-white– clasped]. The leaflet was then sub-headed:
Preventing vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism
Inside the leaflet:
What is Prevent? Prevent is part of the government’s counter terrorism strategy; aiming to prevent people of all ages from being radicalised and drawn into terrorism.
The leaflet continues:
What kind of extremism does Prevent aim to deal with? It aims to deal with all forms of extremism; for example far right extremism, animal rights extremism and religious extremism.
So we see that “terrorism” has already been conflated with or replaced by “extremism”, an even less easily-defined idea. Moreover, we see that Islamist terrorism, the only kind actually posing even a slight threat to public order in the UK, is not mentioned by name (no doubt that would be called “Islamophobic”…) and only coyly implied, sub nom “religious extremism”. No doubt the Jewish Zionist fanatics, who go in their hundreds to be trained by the Israelis in Israel, are not considered “extremists”, “terrorists” etc. No, they just go to an alien society to be trained in the use of weapons and in the techniques of killing with bare hands (oh, and of course, how to “bring down” British MPs thought not to be pro-Israel or pro-Jew…).
Who are these “extremists” in pole position in the Prevent leaflet? Ah, yes, the “far right” (also left undefined, presumably social nationalists, those who hate mass immigration and the trashing of the UK by certain groups and types) as well as those who hate the cruelties inflicted on the animal kingdom by some humans and by human society; but let us now return to the leaflet:
What are some of the possible signs of radicalisation?
you may notice changes in the person’s behaviour or mood;
the person’s appearance may change and they may spend excess [sic] time on the internet;
the person may start to express extreme political or radical views;
the person may become withdrawn or have a change in their circle of friends.
So now we have travelled from “terrorism” and even “extremism” to people who have or may have merely “radical” points of view about, say, the disastrous effect that mass immigration has had on the UK, or about the exploitation and cultural contamination carried out by Jew-Zionists, or even about animal welfare.
The leaflet then asks what the reader might do should he or she actually suspect that another person has changed lifestyle or perhaps have acquired “radical” views:
NOTICE: Be aware of an individual’s vulnerability to radicalisation, any change in behaviour or ideology. An ideology is a set of beliefs an individual may have. [this section of the leaflet also contains the iconic alien-looking “all-seeing eye” motif…]
CHECK: If possible and appropriate check out any concerns with the individual…your line manager and the [NHS] safeguarding team. [this section of the leaflet contains a motif of a magnifying glass with a little humanoid figure inside the lens…]
SHARE: You need to share your concerns with the [NHS] safeguarding team. They can advise you on any relevant partner agencies who will need to be contacted. [note “will need to be contacted” not “may need”…presumably police, MI5 etc].
The leaflet then goes on to list telephone numbers and internet contact details, before ending with these dystopian remarks, which would not have been out of place in an early 1970s BBC Play For Today, or perhaps George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four:
What happens to my referral? [“my referral”, note, not “my denunciation”, “my informing”, my accusation” etc…]. Prevent referrals are shared with the MASH (multi-agency safeguarding hub) or [name of city] SPA (single point of access) depending on where the individual lives. Referrals are then screened for acceptance in to the channel process.
What is channel?
Channel is a multi-agency process whereby professionals and partner agencies can share resources and expertise. The aim of channel is to work with the individual to reduce risk. If your referral is accepted into the channel process you may also be asked to attend the channel meetings to share relevant information as part of effective multi-agency working.
I have sometimes been accused of being, inter alia, a “grammar Nazi”, and am, of course, (also) appalled by the poor English displayed in the leaflet. I have no idea by whom the leaflet was written. Perhaps the Home Office and MI5 are now less likely to recruit graduates from Oxford or Cambridge, or perhaps the near-illiteracy shown is just a function of the UK’s sliding educational standards. The main impression given, though, is that of a police state operation which would be recognizable to an official of Stalin’s Russia or any similar society. The saving grace is probably that it is not (though I am guessing) very efficient.
Indeed, shorn of the millennial “nudge”-government, fake “sharing caring” and armchair psychology nonsense, the leaflet could be seen simply as a method of recruiting agents…
Finally, think about where this leaflet was found– not in a prison, a government office, nor even in a university library, but in a normal NHS clinical environment in the heart of the South of England…
