On this day a year ago
Cruel and disgusting individuals
“A primary school worker and her boyfriend encouraged a two-year-old to kill badgers and foxes during a barbaric family day out, a court heard.
Paris Jade Carding, 28, of Fawley Grove, Wythenshawe, appeared in 32 video clips showing ‘shocking and horrendous’ incidents of animal cruelty.”
Her boyfriend, Grant Leigh Jnr, 30, of the same address, was also found guilty, reports Manchester Evening News.
“Inquiries revealed she had been joined on the barbaric family expedition by her boyfriend and his ex-huntsman father, Grant Leigh Snr, 52, of Marler Road in Hyde, Tameside.”
[Daily Mirror/Manchester Evening News].
Will they even be imprisoned? I hope so.
I believe that a 6-month maximum still applies unless the dogs were injured (which raises the maximum to 5 years, the crimes having happened before 2021).
I would not be surprised if the bitch featured in the report gets off lightly because of the mere fact that she has children (who may well grow up to be as bad as the rest of the “family”).
The courts cannot at present punish this sort of depraved and scarcely-human trash with sufficient severity. The prospect of being sentenced soon does not seem to have wiped the smirk off the evil woman defendant’s face…
I think that the newspaper should have published the exact addresses of the defendants in this case.
The above-reported-on is a very nasty series of crimes despite the fact that the government itself, in the past decade, has wrongfully killed untold thousands of badgers in order to placate the farming lobby.
Absurd leniency in sentencing
I am not at all a “flogger and hanger” but the misplaced leniency shown in that report is just a bad joke. Where is the justice for the victim? I bet that someone who, for example, said something mildly “anti-Semitic”, would get a far heavier sentence (which, after all, would hardly be difficult).
Incidentally, the Daily Mail really ought to employ competent sub-editors, or at least a few literate reporters (I note that the semi-literate scribbler who penned the above report is one “Danyal Hussain”, which may explain the poor English).

Without his unmerited titles and monies, “Prince” Harry would be merely a mildly mentally-disturbed nobody. He has nothing useful to say (let alone to do). Shut up.
If Liz Truss is trying to reprise Anna Karenina (at least in terms of her outfit), then she should re-read the end of the book. Choo choo!
System political puppet-show polling
Other pollsters are broadly in the same area at present, with a slight decrease in the Labour lead over the past couple of weeks.
It is fairly clear to me that, if the misnamed Conservative Party can ditch “Boris”, and if they can then find someone not immediately obviously an idiot to replace him, the two main System parties will be near parity before very long; that suits Con rather than Lab in terms of potential Westminster seats.
Recent local council by-elections continue to show a decrease in the Labour vote-share (with a few exceptions) even where Labour has won the seat in question.
The British (especially English) dilemma remains: if, as voter, you dislike, distrust or despise both main System parties, where do you go? What can you do?
My own political stance is rather different, both in terms of orientation and strategy. I cannot see a way forward as things stand. There has to be a breakdown of both the political system and the economy before a real social-national movement can arise.
Hard to see where Starmer-Labour has any edge over the Cons. Its policies remain similar to those of the Cons, and apart from a sluggish feel to Lab under Starmer, there is the perception, surely correct, that Labour has become a would-be technocratic or “managerial” “we can run workhouses better” party, which I would suggest is not immediately attractive to most voters.
Looking at the near-meltdown of the “Conservatives” (Liz Truss as Foreign Secretary! Nadine Dorries actually in Cabinet! etc) in recent months —indeed, over the past 2 years—, it is amazing that Labour and Starmer are not higher in the polls than they are.
Were a new Con Party leader to come in and sweep away the Truss, Dorries, Priti Patel (etc) detritus, Labour would be dead in the water (again). Corbyn was “Marmite” to many, but Labour was doing better under Corbyn in real elections than it has done under Starmer, so far at least.
Starmer’s trump card, he thinks, is managerial efficiency, and that is certainly the Cons’ weak suit, but Starmer and Labour may find that that is not quite enough. Also, I should imagine that the voters, even if unaware of the Labour Friends of Israel aspect, look at Rachel Reeves, Yvette Cooper etc, and see (rightly, in my estimation) would-be tyrants, full of political correctness and hatred for free speech.
Little Matt Hancock, once “health tsar”, now totally washed-up and irrelevant, wishes the Prince of Wales “recovery” from an “illness” of which said notable would be completely unaware were it not for a “test”!
This whole “Covid” thing, whether you call it “panicdemic”, “scamdemic” or whatever, has just become utterly ludicrous. I think that the public perception of that (albeit that it took the public 2 years to wake up to it) is behind the swift abandonment of restrictions such as the facemask nonsense.
“Boris” may be an idiot, but he has a general cunning re. the public mood. He needs a boost, and getting rid of the restrictions will give him one, even if not as much of a boost as he needs.
Incidentally, I went to Waitrose about 5 days ago. Not very crowded (early evening). As I entered the store, I saw a number of people, all at least 80, all wearing facemasks. About 6-8 of them. My heart sank that the sheep had still not awoken from the brainwashing. However, on going further into Waitrose, I saw that almost all the remaining shoppers (of all ages) were not still wearing the useless bits of cloth or plastic. Thank God for that.
Jacinda Ardern, like Justin Trudeau, will not be removed by petitions, peaceful demonstrations, or even election voting.
Russia must take Eastern Ukraine, Kiev, and the Black Sea littoral soon, or lose the golden moment. Waiting a few weeks might or might not be OK. Waiting a year would be disastrous. The New World Order will by then have built up Ukraine into, if not a NATO state (NATO rules disallow a country to join if its territory is partly-occupied), then a quasi-NATO ZOG puppet state.
A lot depends on weather, as with Barbarossa in 1941. If the mud gets worse, it might impede even the armoured vehicles of 2022, and the mud will not go until the late spring, or summer.
Everything favours the Russian forces…so far. Russia’s air power is overwhelming, its armour also very strong. Russia also has superiority in the numbers, equipment, and training of its ground troops.
A simultaneous seizure of the whole east of Ukraine, of Odessa (with Black Sea coast and the littoral stretching a few miles beyond that coast), and of Kiev, would mean that all major cities of Ukraine except Lvov would be in Russian hands. The capture of Kiev would decapitate the regime of the Jewish clown now posing as President, and there would be no immediate need to seize the half to two-thirds of Ukraine west of the Dnieper and inland.
Admittedly, that might leave considerable anti-Russia forces in the west of Ukraine, and a rump government based on Lvov. However, that rump government would have few sources of funding, be unable to import or export by sea, and would have limited credibility. Russian air power would be able to eliminate any large concentrations of armour left, and the air force of Ukraine is very weak; it would probably by then have more or less ceased to exist.
It is tragic that two peoples closely bound together for so long (over a thousand years) should battle in this way, but Russia has little choice now. For the sake of the whole civilian population of Ukraine, it must strike both swiftly and overwhelmingly. A Blitzkrieg for the sake of mercy, if you like.
More about Ukraine etc
While driving, I listened to BBC Radio 4 PM (old and bad habits die hard). Liz Truss in Moscow. Bloody hell! What an embarrassment this whole Cabinet is! The presenter said that Liz Truss was “talking tough” to the Russians… Talk about a hollow threat! Little Liz Truss, “talking tough” but with literally nothing to back her up.
The British Army, supposedly about 70,000 strong, but (if what I read is correct) with only about 11,000 active front-line troops altogether. Around Ukraine alone, Russia is said to have massed over 100,000.
It would have been better for Liz Truss to have said nothing than to have uttered, as she did, scarcely-veiled threats, when the Russians know that she has nothing in her arsenal with which to speak louder.
Talking about useless people, I also heard Cressida Dick yapping about how she is going to root out police personnel engaged in “racist, homophobic or misogynistic” language. How about the police actually doing their main job instead of doing the bidding of malicious Jew-Zionist agitators such as those in the tiny group of troublemakers called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”?
The CAA specializes in making malicious and often completely false allegations. I have had several made against me in the past decade, most recently only last year: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.
The police seem all too ready to play the role of “poundland KGB”. There have been thousands of recent examples of police exceeding their powers, and going well beyond what the law actually says (repressive as it anyway now is). There again, Cressida Dick is a Common Purpose drone, and their arrogant motto is “leading beyond authority“, a major reason why idiots like Mizz Dick have been promoted beyond their competence, and why public administration is now beginning to break down.
Meanwhile, I notice that, in Winchester, a statue has now been unveiled to honour a mediaeval Jewish moneylender woman! Comment is superfluous…
It can only be a matter of time before Odessa is taken.
So Lavrov, Foreign Minister of a country 72x the size of the UK, with several times the population, and armed forces about 20x as numerous and powerful, got bored listening to the shrill grandstanding of Liz Truss, who carries no weight whatsoever, either militarily, politically, or intellectually. For the UK, this is embarrassingly poor.
As I said, Liz Truss is just an embarrassment, like “Boris”-idiot…
