Exactly. Two people I know went down (if such be the bon mot) with “the virus”: my 20-something Australian niece (in London), who was told to drink water and take a few Paracetomol, and my then 99-y-o mother-in-law. The first recovered within a couple of weeks, the second never had any symptoms at all (routine testing in hospital discovered her supposed infection).

Reply to Martin Bright, of “Index on Censorship”…now headed by Ruth Smeeth, the half-Jew/Zionist pro-Israel propagandist, former Labour MP, and former “strictly protected” confidential contact of the US Embassy…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Smeeth.

As I have blogged before, there is a large bloc of people in the UK who basically want to be controlled, told what to do, what to wear, what to think. Many are “Remainers”, many are (self-proclaimed) “antifascists”, and those on Twitter are often the (usually) idiotic who say that they are “FBPE” etc.

Not sure that I agree with Hitchens here. The few Trotskyists and similar “Leftists” I knew at and immediately after school were all pedestrian in mentality. Some claimed to be both Communist and anarchist! Trotskyism —a dummy intellectuality for the mediocre. Surprisingly (?), many Trotskyists have always been Jew or part-Jew (as, latter, is Hitchens).

I am also not in agreement with Hitchens when he refers to “Left wing” sympathies having been less popular in the (?) 1970s or late 1960s. I myself never use the terms “Left” and “Right” as meaningful, but certainly socialism of the old sort is just passe now, nicht wahr?

…or the non-Jewish (i.e. the “formerly known as” English) “community”?…

1945 propaganda film

American propaganda film from 1945, echoing the kind of anti-German views propounded during WW1 by writers such as John Buchan.

The above tweet typifies not only the view of John Rentoul, but also of the “New Labour” type of System commentator (and politician) generally. They think that politicians should —mainly— find out the public/msm view (via polling, focus groups etc) then do whatever that research suggests in order to be going with the popular tide; to be “electable”. I disagree. Leaders must lead, must make judgments based on their own views and assessments.

In 1928, Hitler and the NSDAP were very definitely not popular. They got only 2.8% of the popular vote. However, their integrity and vision impressed that same fickle public when, after the collapse of the world finance-capitalist economy in 1929, the vision of a German renaissance was held out. The NSDAP scored 33% in 1932 and, with Hitler as Chancellor, 44% in 1933.

Integrity. Congruence. Vision. Belief.

Dominic Cummings. What a very odd little man. How did someone like that attach himself to the very top of government in the UK? On the other hand, the same might be asked of Boris Johnson.

I have blogged about Cummings previously: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/.

The sort of issue which happens when a superficially “liberal” regime (such as under the “Labour”-label governments from 1997-2010) passes kneejerk laws “for public protection”, but which scarcely protect the public while at the same time trashing the true rule of law and civil rights. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprisonment_for_public_protection.

There have been other such laws, such as the very bad law known as Communications Act 2003, s.127, under whch jokers, satirists, socio-political commentators, and those discussing the fakery around the “holocaust” narrative have been harassed and even imprisoned. Singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz for one.

Even I myself was questioned, in 2017, after a cheeky Jew from Essex made malicious complaint to the police of his area about tweets I had —allegedly— posted. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 may now face repeal, following the recent report by the Law Commission, but there are a number of other “kneejerk” laws still standing, such as that by which almost all firearms were criminalized in 1997. As usual emotion led thought: only three “gun massacres” have occurred in British civil history, of which two were pre-1997 (Dunblane and Hungerford).

As a result of politicians wanting to get public approbation for “doing something”, privately held pistols were effectively banned, even if held by clubs. Has that stopped “gun crime”? No. There was a later “spree shooting” (in 2011) by someone using licensed shotguns and rifles, and there have been innumerable shootings by criminal gangs and individuals.

A couple of rounds costs about £1. Cheap at the price.

Priti Patel is not only as thick as two short planks, she is also a proven colluder with (agent of, more or less) the Israeli state and the Jewish lobby (which is 99% pro-migration-invasion); further, she is herself, effectively, a migrant-invader, who would have been serving behind the counter of a Kampala grocery store had her parents not come to the UK.

Apsana Begum

Where does one start? First of all (obviously), she is not of English or British origins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsana_Begum. Secondly, she has (of course) never had a real job, just political agitation and the usual “diversity” and “anti-racism” bs.

“In response to allegations that the ex-Mayor Lutfur Rahman was behind her political career, Begum told Eastlondonlines: “It is grossly insulting, as well as being rooted in racism and misogyny, to assume that I have no agency of my own and that I must be a ‘proxy’ or ‘stooge’ for a man I have not spoken to for six years.” [Wikipedia]

Strangely enough, her defence at her recent fraud trial was quite or almost the reverse: that she had been coerced into doing things by her estranged husband…

I presume that Apsana Begum is still living in her council flat. While, in principle, I have no objection to an MP living in a council flat, MPs do get paid about £85,000 a year (plus fairly generous expenses), so it does seem unfair on the poor and homeless of Tower Hamlets that she continues to occupy a cheap flat when she could afford a better private one (or to buy one on a mortgage), and bearing in mind that Limehouse and Tower Hamlets is a safe Labour seat (and near-rotten borough), so she can probably expect to be the MP for a long long time (unless a national revolution occurs, please God).

In England, it is unlawful for newspapers or others to enquire about the detailed composition or views of members of a jury during or even after a trial, so we do not know the racial and/or religious composition of that acquitting jury. Pity…

No doubt, after any denouement, the new System MP for Batley and Spen, Kim Leadbeater, will say a few appropriate weasel words…

I have heard a number of well-authenticated stories about well-known msm “celebrities” and MPs. The UK needs a very wideranging cultural, political, and social purge, on a scale rivalling those of the 20thC dictatorships. Evil and decadence must be rooted out. Ausrotten!…

Of all the countries in the world, the one I would have thought, years ago, would be least likely to turn into an NWO/ZOG “woke” dictatorship or tyranny would have been Australia, where I myself was at school for three years in the late 1960s (Middle Harbour PS and North Sydney Boys’ High).

Seems that times have changed, to put it tritely.

I was friendly, in 1996-97, with the Australian Ambassador to Kazakhstan, and his lady ambassadress. He updated me, when he and his wife were my guests at dinner (at my favourite small Georgian restaurant, where I and guests were usually the only diners) on the demographic changes since the 1960s, in particular the huge increase of both population and built area (especially in and around Sydney, where I had been as a child, living in Mosman and then Cremorne).

That population explosion and suburban expansion has continued.

In the late 1960s, Sydney had about 2.5M inhabitants; now it is 5.5M. Australia as a whole had about 12M people; now about 25M.

As for the composition of the population, far more mixed now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demography_of_Australia#Immigration_and_country_of_birth

Crazed Britain

A woman who shielded for nine months was killed on her first day out after being hit by a lorry while searching for a face mask in her handbag. Sarah Lewis was struck by the vehicle on November 16, 2020 after stepping into its blind spot while untangling a face covering from her belongings.” [Daily Telegraph] https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/07/21/woman-killed-lorry-first-day-shielding-nine-months/.

I myself have saved not only reckless pheasant and pigeons (not to mention a number of cats) from certain death on the road recently, but several equally-reckless human persons, including one old lady and one young girl, both of whom insisted on stepping in front of my car while both muzzled and engrossed in what I took to be mobile telephones.

I have blogged about Paul Mason previously. When he writes about economics, he can be interesting, but when he writes or speaks about politics, he is ludicrous. His political viewpoint seems to be a kind of anarcho-syndicalist/Trotskyist/general “Leftist” mixture which leaves both history and good sense far behind.

Why does Mason support Jewish-lobby puppet, Keir Starmer? Well, that is an open question. Mason is part-Jew, like Owen Jones and other msm talking heads, so that may be part of it. There again, it may be that Mason thinks that “mainstream” Labour is still the only political game in town apart from the equally-misnamed Conservative Party. He may therefore imagine that he can perhaps influence Starmer-Labour, and so rescue himself from being a fringe commentator.

For all I know, Mason may even harbour ambitions to become a Labour MP and then something more, such as, in time, a major Labour Party figure. Who knows?

That may seem to be absurd, but perhaps less so than “Boris” becoming a Cabinet minister and then Prime Minister…if one political bad joke can rise high, why not another? After all, it happened not only to “Boris” but to Priti Patel, Sajid Javid, Grant Shapps, Matt Hancock etc. A similar case: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yanis_Varoufakis.

Never say never…

John Pilger! A “blast from the past” as people used to say. Had not heard of him for many years. 81 now, apparently: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Pilger.

Another myth is that a scientist is, ipso facto, honest. We have seen enough fakery around the “climate change” narrative to have a different view. For example, that scientist (whose name I forget) at the UN IPCC (and University of East Anglia) who colluded with the Indian at the IPCC to falsify data, so that the public would believe the “climate change” narrative more readily.

That was about 13 years ago, about the same time as said Indian claimed that the Himalayan glaciers would cease to exist by about 2015, leading to the Ganges, Brahmaputra, Indus and other rivers running dry. Not yet, anyway.

Many will recall the Al Gore film, An Inconvenient Truth, with its claims that, inter alia, “climate change” caused the Aral Sea to dry up (no, it was caused by the mad diversion of rivers in order to support cotton production: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_Sea).

That is without even starting on certain “historical” untruths…scientists are not necessarily any more credible than historians, when they depend on certain “narratives” for their careers, publishing etc.

Peter Hitchens has an almost touching faith in the efficacy of writing to MPs. That is one rather big delusion (though I like much of what he writes). I do not know what might change the mind of the clowns now posing as MPs. Not letters, anyway…

and once again the police are useless, pathetically begging the unidentified perpetrator to hand himself in…

Those once-fine old English/British institutions such as the RSPB, RNLI, National Trust etc have all been taken over by the enemy, the fake communitarians of Common Purpose, “BLM” etc. The enemy thus gets well-paid while subverting both the institution in question and the general society. A general purge is needed.

The sort of rabbits that go around wearing facemasks are really the weak-minded who do what they think the mob wants. “Everybody” does it, think they. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if you see someone masked or muzzled when the law does not mandate it, that person can probably be written off as a free or independent thinker.

Glad to see that I am not the only person awake! Ouspensky [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P._D._Ouspensky] once had an experience in the street in which he perceived that all others in that street were actually asleep, not really awake…

I was in Australia for 3 years in the late 1960s, and attended school there (Middle Harbour PS and North Sydney Boys’ High). I have come to understand that basically Anglo countries such as Australia and the UK are held back by their basic philistinism; in other words, by their prioritizing of mass spectator sport and mass TV rubbish over thinking freely.

Thus, the System can easily impose a biosecurity police state, or import millions of backward people from Africa, Asia, Caribbean, without the slightest serious challenge from the people, because what matters to the (so far) majority white population is not spirituality, philosophy, history, good government, even logic, but winning some televised sporting pleb-fest on the other side of the world.

Look at New Zealand. I do not say that Brenton Tarrant [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christchurch_mosque_shootings] did the “right thing” in 2019 (indeed, I blogged to the contrary at the time: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/25/the-new-zealand-attack-and-related-matters/), but he saw New Zealand’s trajectory and wanted to change it, whereas the mass of the population was and remains asleep, and led by a woman totally part of the international System [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinda_Ardern].

These are invaders, and must be treated as such.

I’m with tweeter “@barbyonabike” as far as this goes.

Well, as I understand it (may or may not be correct), Tommy Robinson is not only insolvent but actually bankrupt [https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/tommy-robinson-cocaine-donations-prison-b1787467.html], in which case the damages awarded today will not be collected.

Legal action cannot usually be taken against a bankrupt, but the issuance of proceedings for legal action in this case preceded the bankruptcy petition.

It will be recalled that I blogged prolifically about the supposed legal action (in harassment, I think) being taken a couple of years ago by Twitter twit, “antifa” cheerleader and mental case Mike Stuchbery against Tommy Robinson. It never was likely to happen, as I said from the start. Now, it cannot. A bankrupt cannot usually be sued, as noted. Also, there would be no point in suing “Tommy Robinson” now, even if it could be done.

I suppose that that one will have to be filed with Stuchbery’s other fantasy libel actions (against stray Twitter users, a number of Danes who laughed at him, and against me!). He loves the idea that he might “clean them out”…

Never mind, he can also send me (yet another— he sent a couple in the past when he forgot to take his medication) would-be intimidating comment on my blog comments page. They made me laugh (which is “the best medicine”, it is said; not that I need any).

Stuchbery, with “Resisting Hate” Twitter troll Roanna Carleton Taylor (“@witchofpeace”, aka “@antifashwitch” and now “@oilpaintwitch”) launched a GoFundMe appeal to pay for action against “Robinson”. A Pakistani one-man solicitor firm was supposedly going to issue proceedings. As I guessed would prove to be the case, from the beginning, it never happened.

I still sometimes idly wonder what Roanna Carleton Taylor, Stuchbery, and the Pakistani did with the nearly £12,000 they were given (by a total of nearly 700 “antifascist” mugs). It certainly was not spent on legal work. It seems that the Pakistani drafted only one very short and very poor “letter before action” to Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (Tommy Robinson’s real name), which letter may not even have been delivered.

Possibly yet another Twitter user with mental health problems. I do not know. The “virus” infects many people, but only a tiny number have any symptoms; only a few (an even smaller proportion) need any medical help at all. A tiny tiny number die from or “with” this virus.

My 99-y-o mother-in-law only knew she had it after having been routinely tested while in hospital for a fracture; oh, and she contracted it in hospital, where all patients were constantly masked, an indictment of both the appallingly-poor hygiene in NHS hospitals and the uselessness of facemasks; she was discharged weeks later, still without symptoms.

My 20-something Australian niece (working in London) contracted the virus last year, but only required a few paracetomol tablets and a few weeks of rest. I know of no-one else at all who has knowingly contracted “Covid-19”.

Such traitors do more harm than spies or even terrorists could ever do.

As for thick-as-two-short-planks Priti Patel, her “cunning plan” seems to be to try to discourage small-boat migration-invasion, while allowing in, on an even more lax basis, so-called “legal” immigrants of all kinds, including “asylum-seekers”.

The result of the above is that small-boat invaders will not be returned (anywhere) because most will destroy their papers and/or lie about their origins, while —at the same time— huge new waves of “legal” migration will come. That’s without even thinking about the (up to) 5 MILLION Hong Kong Chinese expected to arrive.

Internet problem

Today’s belated Diary Blog will be truncated by reason of a national, possibly international, attack of some sort on Internet provision; the blog will therefore consist mainly of tweets that struck my attention today. There will be relatively little analysis.

I have also been musing today about how so many who try to do bad things to me, or who have written or said bad things about me, suffer severe hits themselves one way or another. A number have even died from various causes, though not directly through any agency of mine, I should add.

I may write about that some day.

Naturally, films, TV shows, books too, about the evils of Sovietism are, and will be (until the causes are eliminated), outnumbered a thousand to one by films, TV shows, books etc about the supposed evils of the Third Reich, for the simple reason that Zionist Jews control the film industry, TV companies (including the BBC) and publishing empires across the Western world.

Wikipedia and the various versions of “history”

Wikipedia is a useful resource if used with a sceptical attitude. For example, I saw this piece about one Anna Seghers, a Jewish woman who became a Communist Party member in Germany in 1928: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Seghers.

According to that article, Anna Seghers was “arrested by the Gestapo” in 1932. That would in fact have been impossible, if only because the Gestapo was established only in 1933, at which time it was a police organization purely in the region of Prussia, having been set up by Goering. It became a nationwide organization three or more years later, in and after 1936: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestapo.

Anna Seghers was from Mainz, in the Rhineland-Palatinate, and spent all or most of her life until 1934 in that region of Germany, mostly in Koblenz and Cologne. In other words, in the part of Germany where she lived, and when she lived there, there was no Gestapo.

It is possible that this Anna Seghers was questioned by local police, though not Gestapo, or even that she was briefly detained in 1933 or 1934 in Prussia (where there was a Gestapo), though that seems unlikely. Whatever the true facts, and even if she was arrested, she was then released. So she was not (as typical postwar propaganda would have it) brutalized, imprisoned, sent to a concentration camp, shot, “gassed” or her skull exhibited by SS-Ahnenerbe…

In fact, she went —and was allowed to go— to Switzerland in 1933 or 1934, and from there she went to Mexico.

While still in Paris, in 1939, she had written The Seventh Cross, for which she received the Büchner-Prize in 1947. The novel is set in 1936 and describes the escape of seven prisoners from a concentration camp. It was published in the United States in 1942 and produced as a movie in 1944 by MGM starring Spencer Tracy. The Seventh Cross was one of the very few depictions of Nazi concentration camps, in either literature or the cinema, during World War II.” [Wikipedia]

So look at that above paragraph: The Seventh Cross was “one of the very few depictions of concentration camps” before 1945, yet that description is entirely fictional! Anna Seghers was never anywhere near a concentration camp or any kind of camp! In fact, she had left Germany in 1933 or 1934, i.e. before or within a few months of Hitler’s accession as Chancellor.

Reminiscent of the above is the 1993 film Schindler’s List, which many think of as “history”, whereas in fact it was based on a novel, Schindler’s Ark, written by an Australian who was only born in 1935, and whose novel (i.e. a work of fiction, which in fact won the Booker Prize for Historical Fiction) was published in 1983.

Naturally, a few real facts are woven into the fictional narrative. This is common to all “faction” writing (cf. The Day of the Jackal etc).

Another is the film Sophie’s Choice, which is completely fictional, but which many naive people cite as a “true story” and an example of the behaviour of the SS etc!

The “Working Class History” Twitter account weasels about Anna Seghers having “survived”, as if “the Gestapo” did terrible things to her instead of…nothing. The tweet there is very misleading, implying that Anna Seghers was detained for years, maybe until 1945!

If Anna Seghers had any contact with the German political police at all, it was probably no more than I had when a pack of Jews made a malicious report about me to the Essex Police in 2017: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

Priti Patel bullied staff” [news reports]. It is well-known that Indian women often bully their staff, eg household maids etc. That is even more true of those employers (or, in Sun-speak, “bosses”) brought up in modest circumstances (as Priti Patel was— her parents were small shopkeepers who built up a chain of profitable small shops). What surprises me is the surprise shown by all (in the msm etc).

Actually, exactly what do you have to do now to get permanently binned as a minister or Cabinet minister? Seems that bullying your staff is not enough. Neither is being corrupt, nor being an agent of Israel. Priti Patel has now achieved the hat-trick…yet there she sits on her huge rear end, still posing as Home Secretary. Jesus CHRIST!

Jan Morris

Jan Morris, the writer, has died. As a travel writer, particularly, Jan Morris was unequalled, though “In an interview with BBC in 2016 she told Michael Palin that she does not like to be described as a travel writer, as her books are not about movement and journeys; they are about places and people.” [Wikipedia]; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Morris.

Not often that I find myself in agreement with “antifa” supporter, “Dr.” Louise Raw, but…

Ah. MSM drones who never said a single word in defence of Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, me, others, are finding out now that their own freedom of expression is disappearing because it is convenient for ZOG/NWO to repress it.

This is what the MPs who are members of Conservative Friends of Israel (80% of Con MPs) and Labour Friends of Israel (many, inc. Jess Phillips, Rachel Reeves, Yvette Cooper, Keir Starmer etc) are supporting. Dictatorial Jew-Zionist power both in the Middle East and also in Europe, including the UK.

Those who are or think that they are “Left” or “socialist” should simply call those they criticize what “they” really are, behind all the other “identities”… eventually, they must express themselves clearly as to the menace…

Boris-idiot

Looks like the rest of the country is catching up fast with long-time critics of the part-Jew public entertainer presently posing as Prime Minister.

I have been anti-“Boris” for well over a decade.

When I saw a brief part of Prime Minister’s Questions last Wednesday, “Boris” looked not so much crushed as flattened. That was not entirely because of the onslaught on him by actually rather unimpressive Angela Rayner. I think though (and last PMQs thought for the first time) that “Boris” really is, in the time-honoured phrase, now “considering his position” as Prime Minister.

As I blogged a day or two ago, “Boris” enjoyed being PM so long as it amounted to him posing as “World King” (his stated ambition when he was 8 years old). Now, he has understood that, especially in fractious times, being Prime Minister involves the storied “blood, sweat and tears”. Difficult choices and decisions. Trenchant criticism from many, including political “friends”. Nowhere to hide, most of the time. A British Prime Minister may not have to be on display as he gets dressed, unlike the Bourbon kings at their morning “levee”, but apart from that is on display most of the time.

You might think that an exhibitionist such as “Boris” would enjoy the attention which is an inevitable part of being a Prime Minister of the UK, but I apprehend that “Boris” does not like being put on the spot or questioned. Who does, actually?

Theresa May hid away as much as possible, leading to her ludicrous election speeches in 2017 to selected bunches of people in remote aircraft hangars. “Boris” has tried to hide in a fridge, in a tent, at Chequers, and elsewhere too, but his very rank now seeks him out. You cannot “work from home” as a Prime Minister. There is no home, really.

In the end, people want to be Prime Minister for one or more of several reasons: vanity; to accomplish particular things; out of a sense of duty; in order to be at the peak of executive power; malice, meaning to deny the position to others.

Boris-idiot has no ideology, no real ideas, no sense of duty, and has really only the vanity of having attained to the position, and also the sense of power, of being able to hire and fire etc.

Boris has no ideology, that much is obvious. He pretended at one time to have a kind of libertarian, “free-market”, 1960s Hong Kong-meets-Milton Friedman ideology at first; a “can-do” cartoon American self-help view of the world which indicated a total lack of self-awareness. After all, where would “Boris” be without the education (and for “education”, read “connections”) bestowed by Eton and Oxford and bought by his pushy careerist father, and family generally? Every job “Boris” messed up just led to another and another. “Boris” has never had to struggle, because family and other connections always helped him.

Any ideological sense has now left “Boris”. The one-time cartoon “libertarian” now tries to force the British people to wear facemask muzzles, to keep x-feet away from each other, to have no more than 6 people together at any one time, even at family gatherings etc. When was the last time there were such killjoy “laws” (which in fact may not even be —valid— laws)? The Second World War? The Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell?

As for free-marketism, the Boris-idiot government has prevented many businesses from operating profitably or at all, while at the same time propping up those and other businesses with public money: airlines, train companies, bus companies, restaurants, pubs, hotel chains. You name it.

All that in the name of suppressing a virus which peaked in the UK in early April of 2020, and which has been killing fewer and fewer people ever since. Yesterday, the latest figures showed about 4,000 people “testing positive” for “the virus”, most of whom showed no symptoms at all! Meanwhile, about 20 or so people died “from” (with) that virus (supposedly). 1 person dying for every 2,000 known to have the virus.

This is madness. “Boris” made the wrong call right from the start, by “locking down” (shutting down” much of the economy and almost all of our society, even churches and the House of Commons.

“Boris” was misled by the risibly misnamed “SAGE” committee (I prefer “DUMB”— Department Under Matt and Boris).

I do not blame “Boris” for making the wrong call, but I do blame him for not admitting his mistake in due time, for not stopping the “lockdown” after the first few weeks, and for not reining back the excesses of the toytown police across the country. A police state is bad, but a silly toytown police state is in some respects worse and certainly leads to a disrespect for all the institutions of society.

What are the ideas of Prime Minister “Boris”? Schoolboy fantasies of bridges across the Irish Sea, a bridge across the English Channel, of tunnels under the sea, of garden bridges across the Thames, cable-cars across the Thames (the only one that was built, but which is of little use); again, of sci-fi artificial islands, on which were to be new airports and high-tech industries. All fantasy, not thought through.

I think that I prefer the fantasies of Ludwig II of Bavaria, who at least realized some of his, leaving fairytale castles in the Alps for the wonderment of latter-day tourists. Neuschwanstein, Linderhof etc at least were built. “Boris Island”, the “Thames Garden Bridge”, the Scotland-Ireland tunnel etc, will never be.

Looking at Boris-idiot now, there is little beyond a deflated balloon. I think that, in his heart (such as it is), “Boris” knows that he is no good at being Prime Minister, and, in that heart, wants out. However, he will not want to resign in disgrace. That means that he has to keep on pretending that the “lockdown” was necessary, that the “local” lockdowns (which now cover or soon will cover much of the country) are necessary, that the fairly recent facemask-muzzling of shoppers (but not pubgoers or office workers) was and remains necessary.

“Boris” is like someone, an employee, who has bet with the money of the company and cannot leave without exposing his dishonesty and incompetence. A political Nick Leeson.

We see now that a raft of stories emerge about how “Boris” cannot live comfortably with his latest quasi-wife and latest child on the poor salary of a Prime Minister, about how crowded are their living conditions at Downing Street, how they actually have to pay something for their food and drink (!), and how they cannot even use Chequers for entertaining their friends without actually having to pay for said friends!

Can you believe it?! The bastard thinks that he cannot live easily on his salary (nearly £160,000 gross), in addition to which salary he has a free flat at Downing Street, a free country house and park at Chequers, free chauffeured transport etc.

“Boris” thinks that the public funds should pay for food and drink for himself and the “ho”, and for their friends!

This seems like a testing-the-waters for a “resigning for personal reasons”, which might include “health reasons”, i.e. that the idiot’s health has been so damaged by “the virus” that he has to step down as Prime Minister. He can then put forward a narrative such as “wounded in action” or equivalent.

No doubt he would not step down as MP, thus enabling him to keep getting the MP salary and expenses, and to scribble his cretinous rantings in the popular Press (for which he was getting £250,000+ p.a., incredibly). No doubt a book or two would also be scribbled. “My Life” and/or “My Time As Prime Minister“, “Me and the Virus” (etc).

For the first time, I thought over the past week that “Boris” might be gone within a year or so. Who then will be (“unelected”) PM, just as “Boris” was when he took over from Theresa May? Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak, he of the disastrous furlough payments? Somehow I doubt it. Mass unemployment, probably just around the corner, will put paid to him, probably. Another Indian, Priti Patel? Good grief! I hope not. As dense as Channel fog. What about little Matt Hancock? This is absurd now…but that is the political system we are in…

This is good to see!

As my regular readers will know, I rarely use the lazy and inaccurate designations “Right” and “Left”. Politics and society have moved on. Look at Boris-idiot “recommending” (giving) a peerage to former Revolutionary Communist Party and more recently Brexit Party candidate, Claire Fox…

America, “Land of Freedom”…

Seems that the more “hardworking” prisoners are being kept in prison in California, contrary to express court orders, so that they can be used as slave labour doing things like fighting fires, and cleaning cars! The less amenable and probably more dangerous ones are being released, incredibly. Further, guess who argued for those “good” prisoners, mostly blacks, to be kept longer in prison so that they could slave for the State? None other than Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party candidate for Vice-President!

Well, I myself would forgo the steak, or perhaps change it for fish or shellfish, but otherwise that sounds pleasant. Maybe some roasted sunflower seeds too.

I was listening to some System propaganda yesterday on the radio. Unsure now whether it was BBC World Service (probably was) or Radio 4. The only other radio station I listen to regularly is BBC Radio 3. Anyway, that broadcast said that deaths “from” (with) “the virus” now top a million worldwide. Well even taking the million figure as accurate, that is one million out of a world population of nearly 8 BILLION, i.e. 8 thousand million. One person dead from or with “the virus” for every 8 thousand people living on Earth now (in rough figures).

There is no need for “lockdowns” (which huge harm both socially and economically), let alone facemasks.

Late music

Diary Blog, 9 August 2020, including thoughts about BBC World Service, Claire Fox and Nigel Farage

An annoying early-morning start to the day, waking up not far past the middle of the night to typical rubbish on the BBC World Service. A programme called United Zingdom, in which what sounded like two Welsh women (one certainly was, being one Lisa Angharad) got together to trash England, the UK, and the British people. One of them apparently has a Singapore passport as well as a British one.

Everything, it seems, is the fault of “the British” (English). They, the English, are basically nasty, “racist” etc. They should not want their own country, language, customs, population. Now Wales, Wales is different! It (apparently) should have its own language etc. The bias and sheer untruth in that little broadcast was incredible.

The woman with the Singapore passport was asked about whether she would prefer to live there and seemed to affirm, though she said that “but they have anti-gay laws there…”, which apparently was a drawback. She then added “…but the British brought those to Singapore“. Ah, so once more the British (and failing that, no doubt any other white Northern Europeans) were to blame! I should have guessed. The other woman then chimed in with “ah, the British again“. Why are we paying (forced to pay) the BBC so that it can pay bitches like that to spout anti-British propaganda?

They should have added that, until the British arrived on the island of Singapore, there was nothing there at all, and had not been for at least 200 years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Singapore

Another couple of deliberate inaccuracies: we were told that the Welsh language is vibrant and becoming more spoken, and that there is “a huge upsurge” in Welsh nationalism.

Language: I myself know from experience in the 1980s that Welsh is naturally a first language in some areas, in West Wales especially. It seems however that less than a quarter of the Welsh population as a whole speak Welsh to any useable standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_language

Welsh nationalism: Plaid Cymru is only nominally “nationalist” anyway, willing to have people in Wales “whatever their race, nationality, gender, colour, creed [etc]” [Plaid Cymru platform].

Even leaving aside the above, the Plaid electoral performance has been poor: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plaid_Cymru#Electoral_performance

Plaid Cymru controls only one local council in Wales (out of dozens). It also has 4 out of 40 Westminster MPs (a figure unchanged or not much changed since the 1970s), and in the last (and final) EU elections had elected 1 MEP out of 4 (their best result was in 1999, 2 out of 5).

Conclusion: there is no upsurge of Welsh “nationalism”, let alone a huge one.

The trashing of the World Service has been one of the saddest things over the past 30 years. It was once interesting, lively, truthful, stimulating. 1970s and 1980s. Now, it cannot even seem to be able to tell the time clearly! The World Service seemed to go into a kind of spiral of decline in the 1990s. A Jewish woman whose name I forget was on constantly, and —quelle surprise— obsessed on air about “holocaust” and “Nazis” almost nonstop.

The decline of BBC World Service continued, reaching (I hope) the bottom round about 2010. In the past year or two, there has been a slight improvement, but only slight. There are still only a few worthwhile programmes, the best being The Forum, especially when presented by Bridget Kendall: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cszjvc https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridget_Kendall.

Martin Bell, the famous broadcaster, journalist and one-term MP [Independent, Tatton] made the point several times that, in dangerous parts of the world (Iraq, Bosnia etc) people know the BBC World Service, yet the World Service is funded on a shoestring compared to rather useless projects such as the British Council [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Council]

I really value the BBC World Service, which is precisely why I despise what it has largely become. As Nietzsche wrote: “the great despisers are also the great reverers” [Friedrich Nietzsche, Also Sprach Zarathustra].

Here we see science popularizer Professor Brian Cox putting forward, yet again, his tendentious political views. The sort of person all too common in the UK, meaning someone who wants the country to become even more of a multikulti dustbin. After all, “I’m all right, Jack”.

There are two types of scientist: the ones doing serious research and perhaps making real and even great discoveries or leaps forward; then there are the others, who are basically popular in the mass media, write books popular with the public, are on TV frequently, rack up official honours (and plenty of money) for all that. Nuff said…

Cox is a good example of the “clever person” (not infrequently someone of scientific background) who has come to think that he is a good deal more clever than he is and who, at least when out of his specialist area or areas, is rather silly.

Incidentally, he presumably meant to say “arrant nonsense“, not “errant nonsense“…

There are huge numbers of bien-pensant idiots in the UK, who love to think of themselves as kind, compassionate, generous etc, as they virtue-signal on Twitter and elsewhere. The famous or infamous ones, such as Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen, Gary Lineker etc are only the tip of the iceberg. Below their capital, income, and public-recognition levels, there are thousands, perhaps even millions of others.

I hesitate to say that none of those people, the “refugees welcome” dimwits, would ever accommodate migrant-invaders in their own homes. A few of the brainwashed and obscure ones might, just as, out of tens of millions, a very few people swim the Channel (to France, usually!), or learn to speak 10 languages fluently.

I met a man once who worked near Elephant and Castle, London, and who could speak, not 10 languages, admittedly, but certainly 8 languages fluently, and those languages did include some of the near-“impossible” ones, such as Finnish and Hungarian.

Such people are rare. They are not the general run. Most of the “refugees welcome” dimwits want the State and/or other people (which is all the State is, in the end) to house and feed those migrant-invaders, and to educate the children of the invaders. The dimwits prioritize the invaders over English/British people such as the ex-soldiers sleeping on the streets, or the middle-aged Brits struggling to survive after the (basically Jewish-influenced) “austerity” of 2010-2020 and the socio-economic upheavals which have occurred and those which lie ahead.

House of Lords, Brexit Party and Nigel Farage

I thought that Richard Tice, 2-i-c of Brexit Party, had been nominated for a peerage; apparently not. Claire Fox has, though. What a strange nomination that is.

I first saw Claire Fox [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claire_Fox] on TV about a decade ago. I think that it was on Newsnight. Or Daily Politics. I think the former. She was supposedly the head of something called The Institute of Ideas. I was curious enough to look it up via Internet. There was not much to see. The “Institute” seemed to consist mainly of Claire Fox, and (I found out after a while) seemed to be funded mainly by a City of London hedge fund speculator Jew, whose name I cannot at present recall.

As for Claire Fox herself, as seen on TV, she was not at all impressive, not convincing; there was something fake about her and her “Institute”, even before I started to look into it.

I found the “Institute of Ideas” to be little more than a facade; indeed, little more than a catchy name. I was unable to discover much about it. The whole thing seemed opaque, insubstantial. One could not grasp hold of it.

I see now that others, such as the journalist and TV news presenter, Jon Snow, had similar problems:

” The news broadcaster Jon Snow, according to a Guardian article, withdrew from an event to which he had been invited by the Royal Society of Arts after realising the IoI’s involvement. Snow felt there was a lack of transparency. ‘I didn’t have a clear idea of who they were,’ he said.  This lack of transparency affects almost every aspect of IoI events, as the article notes:  ‘From the platforms and the floor, the LM [Living Marxism] line is assiduously promoted by the magazine’s supporters and contributors – often without clear attribution of their affiliations.’ ” [Lobbywatch] http://www.lobbywatch.org/profile1.asp?PrId=142]

It seems that the “Institute” was founded in 2000 by Fiona Fox, sister of Claire Fox, and other undisclosed persons. Fiona Fox also heads the Science Media Centre [http://www.lobbywatch.org/profile1.asp?PrId=121], which is embedded within the very Establishment scientific body, the Royal Institution [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Institution]. Another sister, Gemma Fox, heads an EU-funded IT organization in Wales.

As noted in the Lobbywatch piece, above, the so-called “Institute” was founded by people connected with the tiny, obscure, and superficially uninfluential Revolutionary Communist Party [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutionary_Communist_Party_(UK,_1978)] and its connected magazine, Living Marxism or LM [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Marxism], which formally shut down in 2000 but in reality has now been rebranded as the online magazine Spiked [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiked_(magazine)], which has a fairly high profile on Twitter etc: https://twitter.com/spikedonline

Another fairly high-profile person connected with the above is Frank Furedi, a person of Hungarian origins, frequently on BBC radio [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Furedi], whose wife is the head of the UK’s largest abortion “advice” organization.

The “Institute of Ideas” has now retitled itself “The Academy of Ideas” [https://www.facebook.com/instofideas/]. Oddly, on Wikipedia, neither “Institute of Ideas” or “Academy of Ideas” have pages, though the “Academy” has its own website: https://www.academyofideas.org.uk/.

Some of the tweets of Spiked can command my support, many cannot, such as this pitiful article:

Taking just the main contention of that article, the Anglo-American atom-bomb project aka the Manhattan Project or Tube Alloys [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Project; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tube_Alloys] had as its primary aim the destruction of Germany and the German people, not Japan. Most of the scientists of importance were Jews. They hated Germany and National Socialism. Some were also Communists. Germany was only saved from atomic destruction by its unconditional surrender before the bomb was ready to be used.

The above exploration may or may not be interesting, but what interests me now and particularly is why did Boris-idiot (Boris Johnson) nominate Claire Fox for a peerage? Why?

Claire Fox has no real academic pedigree. Even in the 1980s (i.e. before the start of the present “award inflation”, by which almost all students get a supposed “First” or “Upper Second” degree), a 2:2 in English and American Literature scarcely cut it in the academic world! She was a mental health social worker for some years after graduation, then for 10 years a lecturer in English Literature at a couple of technical colleges in South Essex and in South Hertfordshire.

I think that we can be sure that Claire Fox’s peerage nomination was not for “services to education”!

We have already seen that, as a “think tank”, the “Institute of Ideas” scarcely existed. Even as an active lobby group, its activities do not seem to have had much impact. Claire Fox, despite a few appearances on TV, including the —now very outdated— Question Time, was not until recently (until 2019) a very publicly-known person; neither has she been involved with anything normally likely to attract an honour of any sort, let alone a peerage.

What about Claire Fox’s political life? Well, membership of the Revolutionary Communist Party or anything like it has never been an easy route to the House of Lords! Anyone with similar views who ended up with a peerage at least had to pretend to be “Labour”! I cannot think of many, even so. A few Jews, now long gone, perhaps. As for a “revolutionary communist”, even one now sort-of apostate, being ennobled “on the recommendation of” a Conservative Party Prime Minister would have been unthinkable, until now.

Claire Fox joined Nigel Farage’s pop-up “Brexit Party” in 2019, was selected (along with at least two other “former” Revolutionary Communist Party members) as a candidate for the European elections. She was elected, and was an MEP for about a year, until the UK nominally left the EU. One year…

It goes beyond that. Claire Fox has said things that many consider unforgiveable, such as, and in particular, her championing of IRA bombing in 1993, specifically the killing of a child.

Looking at it all, it seems inconceivable that, even a few years ago, or today, such a person could ever be nominated for a peerage, to become one of the UK’s upper house legislators, even bearing in mind the weird collection now in the Lords. Yet there she sits (soon). In fact, her previous (never reversed) support for the IRA has not stood in her way. Even the Sun “newspaper” has her on its YouTube channel!

Not that I disagree with everything she says. I agree with some of what she is saying in the above clip. [Having now —several hours later— seen all of the interview, I concede that I agree with a good deal of what she says in it].

So why was she given (nomination for) a peerage? I cannot entirely work it out, but it is obviously connected with her work for Brexit, and even more so with the standing down of most Brexit Party candidates while the election campaign was ongoing. A stunning act of betrayal by con-man Nigel Farage. He shot his own party in the neck. Or the back. Moreover, he stood down only candidates facing previously-incumbent or new Conservative Party candidates! Including Conservative Party candidates who were Remain supporters!

Nigel Farage ensured that the Conservative Party won the 2019 General Election. It might have won anyway, but might not have done, and certainly would not have achieved a Commons majority of 80 (or any majority).

If I am correct, and Claire Fox has been somehow rewarded for supporting Farage in his betrayal, why has Farage himself (or his 2-i-c, Tice), not been nominated for the House of Lords? There could be a number of reasons, such as (speculating) that Farage has been paid, as his reward, millions of pounds into an offshore secret account. Why not? I have no evidence that that is the case, but it seems not unlikely to me. £10 million? £20 million? Cheap at the price, when you get the UK in exchange…

Anyway, “the night is young”. Farage still might get a peerage from Boris-idiot; next year, or the year after. Tice too, maybe. Maybe Claire Fox getting one now is in the nature of a “statement of intent” or down-payment to Farage. Maybe giving Farage a peerage right now would make the corruption and betrayal just too obvious. Next year? 2022? Maybe.

The present politics of the System is more than sleazy. It has to be exterminated.

Patriots Day

Just watched an American film, Patriots Day, about the ghastly bombing of the Boston Marathon, and the hunt for the perpetrators. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriots_Day_(film)

I think that the film is one of the best of its type that I have seen. Quite long on TV (with ad breaks, 2 hrs 35 mins), it nonetheless kept the attention throughout (and that is not always the case with me: in younger days, as a 20-something, I was notorious among my friends for getting bored and walking out of cinemas after 20 or 30 minutes of the start of a film).

Assuming that the film was accurate (and I do remember some of the details of that terrible event of 2013), the wife of the main terrorist —she was a Muslim convert, he a Chechen resident in the Boston area— was lucky that it was considered that there was insufficient evidence to charge her.

As for the surviving terrorist, he only last week won his appeal against the death sentence he eventually received. He will spend the rest of his life in some soulless American prison. He was only 19 when he helped his brother to bomb the marathon event.

Such people cannot be described as “urban guerrillas”, if that term is still in use. They are purely terrorists, actuated by malice rather than anything approaching real ideology.

Some may say, “but look what American forces do, bombing civilians“, and that is true, but even from the point of view of hearts and minds, and leaving aside ethics, to bomb a civilian event like the Boston Marathon has no point and indeed is counter-productive: the Islamists gain nothing but the enmity of a superpower and its people.

A film I can thoroughly recommend.

When Australia went mad

Back in the day, Australia had a White Australia Policy. It meant that, until the 1960s (and, because of time lag and events, in effect until the 1990s) Australia was an almost entirely white society. As a child in Sydney in the years 1967-1969, I saw nothing but people of European origin, bar one Aboriginal in the centre of Sydney and one Aboriginal girl in my class at Middle Harbour PS in Mosman (it was equivalent to a British primary school), which girl was on some kind of special programme from the Northern Territory whereby she spent half of the year in a white community.

In the 1970s, a ghastly Australian Labor Party Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, said that Australia was “a South-East Asian nation“. All the subsequent errors stemmed from this one ur-error. Australia is geographically sui generis (with New Zealand and a few small islands) as Australasia, not merely an extension of Asia.

From the 1970s, under political leaders such as Bob Hawke, Australia widened its doors. The Asians, Africans and others flooded in. The country is now a multikulti mess, though you will hear little of that from the msm.

Why has Australia imported even Africans? Evil intent by those with influence and power. How was it sold to the Australian public? Some farrago of nonsense about “refugees welcome”, “boat people”, “Australia has a responsibility” etc. Not so different from the way in which the same socio-ethnic problems are and have been imported into the UK and the rest of Europe. NWO and (((ZOG))).

Sad. However, we should more importantly note the fact that only a fundamentally white ethnostate can also build a decent society now.

(((Someone))), or (((some people))). chose this dystopian emerging semi-chaos for us. Termites working away in government, Civil Service, msm newspapers, TV and radio stations, publishing, academia.

It’s just like when you disparage the fact that Britain is now about 25% non-white (officially nearer 15%, but that is probably a fake statistic). The msm is constantly pushing the idea that the blacks (etc) were always here. You get Twitter idiots claiming that there were numerous blacks here even in Tudor times! Indeed, some malefic academics even claim that the Romans, in Britain or generally. were black! The masses are ignorant and do not know what or who to believe, so this multikulti poison seeps in, but not by accident. There are traitors quite deliberately doing it.

UK “quarantine”

You couldn’t make it up! Thick-as-two-short-planks Priti Patel, posing as Home Secretary. “unveils” her great plan to save Britain from Coronavirus brought in by tourists and others:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2020/may/22/uk-coronavirus-live-news-update-covid-19-travel-quarantine-plan

The elephant in the room is why on Earth the airports and seaports were not closed long ago now, in February or March. Talk about “shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted”! It is almost pointless to do anything now.

Normally, i.e. before and maybe after “Coronavirus”, about 100,000 visitors a day enter the UK. It seems that at least 100,000 but possibly as many as 800,000 visitors have entered the UK since the “lockdown” nonsense was implemented a couple of months ago.

As to the new “quarantine” measures, how absurd they are!

Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has already described the plans as “idiotic” and “unimplementable,” and Airlines UK said they “would effectively kill” international travel to and from Britain.” [The Guardian]

Quite. So almost all of the arrivals by air (and sea, presumably) will be asked to provide an address in the UK at which they will “self-quarantine” for 14 days, on pain of a £1,000 fine? The police will, we are told, spot-check.

This is mere window-dressing. Completely unworkable. Let us say tha, on any given day at present, 15,000 people enter the UK (that is the Government’s own figure; the true figure may be twice that number). So those 15,000 all give, on arrival, a UK address at which they will be “self-isolating”. How many of those can be checked (even once) by the police within the 14 days? 100? 1,000?

A single policeman might be able to check 10 per day, arguably. So even to check a thousand of the fifteen thousand would take about 100 policemen. To check all 15,000 (once) would take 1,500 policemen. To check those 15,000 visitors twice, 3,000 policemen, working only on that job.

The Government in fact does not claim that all will be checked, even once. They say, “spot-checked”. So will only, say, 1,000 of the (Government’s low estimate of) 15,000 daily arrivals be checked (once)? Even that seems unlikely. 100 policemen….

Indeed, what do the fines, if any are levied, do? Nothing (except add £1,000 to police or central funds). Presumably the defaulters, if any, will not (if located before their planned departure dates) be deported, which would by then be pointless anyway (and in fact all the UK’s immigration-detention facilities have been closed by reason of “the virus”, leaving the formerly-incarcerated aliens to roam around as they please).

In terms of deterring those arriving from moving around as they please in the fortnight after arrival, the proposed checks and fines are akin to drink-driving: stiff penalties if caught, but the chances are, that if you only do it once or twice, or a few times, you will not be caught.

Are these “spot-checks” and possible fines even a deterrent? A little, perhaps. What they do do, though, and severely, is to deter from visiting the UK anyone who does not have a compelling and indeed unavoidable reason for coming. I cannot see many tourists, or business travellers for that matter, coming to the UK knowing that for the first 14 days they will be cooped up in their hotels, and checked by the police at that, and fined if they have moved to another hotel (eg if the first one was not to their liking).

This “plan” is typical of thick chancers such as Priti Patel, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith (not guilty in this case, but guilty in so many others…), Little Matt Hancock etc. Not to mention Boris-idiot. These political careerist chancers have no idea. They’re hopeless.

A Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman said that with mandatory 14-day self-isolation in place there simply won’t be sufficient demand to resume passenger services before August at the earliest.” [The Guardian]

The international travel and tourism business in the UK is finished for 2020 and possibly 2021. Hotels, airlines, travel websites etc.

When we look into the future of the UK, do we want it to be an advanced, high-IQ, high-education, prosperous and cultured country, cohesive nation, and ethnostate, or do we want it to be a multikulti, bottom-of-barrel banana republic (with or without a fantasy “royal family” sitting on the peak of the rubbish-tip)?

Peter Hitchens

Some of my readers have been taken aback by my recent reposting of a large number of tweets by Peter Hitchens. This was not done because I agree with Peter Hitchens about everything, but because I agree with much of what he has had to say recently about Coronavirus, “lockdown”, economic shutdown; also, re. Government policy and behaviour.

I have blogged about Hitchens himself in the past:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/

Today, I disagree with him:

At least, I disagree with tweeter “@jona77”, above. If a “wealth tax” is “legalized theft”, then so is that amount of national economic value pumped (via governmental policy, tax policy etc over decades) into such things as, and primarily, private house values.

All but a tiny minority of those who actually have any wealth in the UK have most of it tied up in their house or houses. They themselves did not create such wealth (leaving aside improvements such as house-extensions); the wealth was created largely by the artificially-contrived expansion of value, a result of the policies of governments since, mainly, the 1970s. Margaret Thatcher turbo-charged it.

The value pumped into the real property sector in Britain has, of necessity, taken away value from other sectors.

In other words, if a “wealth tax” (which I do not necessarily support) is “theft”, then so is much of the value that might be “stolen” (taxed). I suppose that that observation is not original, not new. After all “property is theft” [Proudhon], arguably: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Property_is_theft!

As someone who has been cheated, most of his life, I find myself not very sympathetic to the “plight” of the inheritees, trustafarians, buy-to-let parasites, and the sharp-elbowed and property-owning Middle Englanders who always vote “Conservative” (even after that party has changed out of all recognition).

On the other hand, I am certainly in agreement with Hitchens here:

Other tweets seen today

and from one “@Macnessie”, the (it’s becoming a tradition on this blog!) dim SNP tweet of the day:

If the SNP and some Welsh MPs do not wish to attend the Commons, that is their choice and their decision, no one else’s. They are not “barred” by the perfidious English.

A reminder of the volatility of UK politics now:

May 2019, only a year ago…amazing. Conservative Party on 12%.

Talking about the recent past…

I have often thought that many of the stupid actions taken by British governments over the past few decades, from joining the Common Market and abolishing police foot patrols to the destruction of the grammar schools, are so mad that they can only be rationally explained as deliberate sabotage.

The same goes for the fervent dedication of the BBC and much of the press to any cause that would undermine tradition, morality, marriage and manners.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail]

Note: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, often described —by Jew scribblers, by the msm, by (((approved))) Wikipedia editors— as “a forgery”, is really literary fantasy, which however mirrors actual fact and real events. Poetische Freiheit or literarische Fantasie, if you like.

Looks as though reality is slowly intruding…

Coronavirus lockdowns have failed to alter the course of the pandemic but have instead ‘destroyed millions of livelihoods’, a JP Morgan study has claimed. 

Falling infection rates since lockdowns were lifted suggest that the virus ‘likely has its own dynamics’ which are ‘unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures’, a report published by the financial services giant said.” [Daily Mail]

The disastrous “lockdown” nonsense

So that’s about 300,000 more people on the dole thanks to Boris-idiot, “financial genius” Rishi Sunak, and the rest of the Cabinet of clowns.

End the “lockdown”  nonsense now!

Exactly. I suppose that a tiny minority (including me) are already in the frame as dangerously independent thinkers, dissidents, “extremists” (in the view of the NWO, ZOG, “Zionists”, the UK/EU System etc). Others are as yet unidentified by the powers of Evil. The Coronavirus, and the staged panic, and instant laws instituting a toytown police state, are just the beginning.

The System can now use filters such as “who is tweeting or writing against facemasks/”social distancing”/”lockdown” (etc)?” to identify who belongs to the group that is less compliant, less brainwashed. The others, the multikulti “sheep”, “rabbits” etc are malleable and/or unthinking.

The most brainwashed, compliant, easy to order are, of course, those who obediently troop outside their houses once per week to clap or make other noise (at first it was “for the NHS”, now “for our carers”). Social conditioning, as seen also in hospitals, supermarkets etc, where the managements “facilitate” (or should that read “mandate”?) the, in effect, enforced (by social pressure) “clapathon”.

In fact, many do not want to think. Thinking is harder than not thinking, at least at first. You see tweets (often from those presenting themselves as intelligent and/or “caring” and/or “socialist”) actually demanding that “lockdown” be made stricter, that the Government go further, that heavy fines or prison be introduced for “breaches” of “the rules” (regardless of whether the so-called “rules” are law or indeed even lawful). Most of these people are those who believe that they favour “human rights”. They fall at the first fence, unaware of the irony, unable to see it.

Again, quite right.

As I predicted years ago, in 2015 and later, the EU, as part of the NWO consensus/conspiracy, would try to secure (if a Brexit referendum became inevitable in the UK) a Remain victory. Failing that, the first fallback would either be a second “confirmatory” referendum (a re-run, to get the “right” result) or a “deal” on everything, which would really be a “BRINO” (Brexit In Name Only).

Some people are still foolish enough to think that “Europe” (by which they mean the EU) stands in opposition to the USA. That may be true in the —relatively— small things such as agricultural standards and so on, if you like, the “tactical” things; but on the strategic plane, the EU and the USA are really working together as part of the “Western” NWO plan:

BhFozwVCQAAjLNT

The only niggle I would have with the cartoon above is that Zionism, in the usual sense, is only one part of the conspiracy, the other being a kind of uber-freemasonry. In fact, if you look at those playing important public roles (albeit as puppets) in the UK area of the international conspiracy, they are usually part Jew and part connected by present family or by heredity with the sometimes non-Jew but highly Masonic-linked power structures of the West: David Cameron-Levita, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, to name a few.

The migration-invasion continues

TheCampOfTheSaints.jpg

What was once dystopian fiction has become everyday fact: when Jean Raspail wrote The Camp of the Saints, it was regarded as implausible fiction, yet now we see enormous numbers of blacks and browns invading Europe by sea, more or less as per the book mentioned.

As far as the UK is concerned, joke Home Secretary Priti Patel (thick as two short planks, an Israeli tool, and in effect an invader herself) talks about stopping at least illegal immigration, but hundreds, every day, are landing on the beaches of Southern England, or are “intercepted” at sea and then brought here for free shelter, food and cash! Several hundred a day.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Camp_of_the_Saints] [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Raspail]

By the way, the book used to be available secondhand for little money, but has now soared in cost. £100+. Fortunately, a pdf version is available for free:

Click to access Camp_of_the_Saints.pdf

Once here, the invaders are encouraged to breed with European (i.e. white) women, to create the mixed-race population of the future as envisaged a century ago by the evil “genius” of the System, Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi

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

In the UK (and elsewhere), the propaganda for a mixed-race population, to be achieved mainly by the impregnation of white women by blacks and browns, has become truly relentless; in TV ads, TV “soaps” and other dramas or melodramas and in every other way:

Nick Griffin

I have never met Nick Griffin. Before a pack of Jews procured my expulsion from Twitter, I retweeted a few of his tweets; he retweeted one or two of mine. Perhaps, having reposted a number of tweets from Griffin, I should briefly explain my view of him. It is, firstly, that he did very well to get the BNP to the point where two MEPs were elected (Griffin himself and Andrew Brons https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Brons).

I disagreed with some aspects of BNP policy and presentation, but also agreed with much. The same with Griffin’s views as seen now on, eg, Twitter. I agree more than I disagree.

Griffin’s Question Time debacle in 2009 was a bad mistake on his part. I think that he and his colleagues may have considered that the BNP had finally made it into the “mainstream”. He was ambushed. System mouthpieces like American black woman Bonnie Greer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_Greer] relentlessly interrogated Griffin about the “holocaust” and Third Reich etc. Greer was seated on the panel next to Griffin, inches away.

The whole programme was akin to a Chinese Cultural Revolution denunciation-fest organized by Red Guards. Griffin himself called it a “lynch mob”. The normal format of the show was put aside so that Griffin and the BNP could be seen to be (seen by over 8 million viewers) humiliated.

I suppose that one could call Griffin’s decision to attend, “brave but stupid”; more charitably, a gamble that did not come off (because the race was fixed).

The programme was watched by an estimated 8.2 million viewers, more than three times the average figure for Question Time, and on a comparable level with prime time entertainment shows. Griffin’s appearance dominated the following day’s media; a follow-up report in the New York Times said that “the early reading by many of Britain’s major newspapers was that Mr. Griffin lost heavily on points.

In a press conference held on 23 October, Griffin stated that he would make a formal complaint about the format of the programme, which he said was “… not a genuine Question Time; that was a lynch mob“.[93] He suggested that he should appear again, but that “… [we] should do it properly, and talk about the issues of the day”,[94] and added: “That audience was taken from a city that is no longer British … That was not my country any more. Why not come down and do it in Thurrock, do it in Stoke, do it in Burnley? Do it somewhere where there are still significant numbers of English and British people, and they haven’t been ethnically cleansed from their own country.” [Wikipedia]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Griffin#2009_appearance_on_Question_Time

I also feel that Griffin has had to fight the System, and has been arrested, charged, prosecuted by it, though acquitted in the end, thanks to British juries (those results would be less likely today, because there would be more blacks and browns on the juries). Having been myself questioned (though never prosecuted, charged or even arrested), I feel for him!

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

In fact, I recall that, after the final 2006 acquittal of Griffin and Mark Collett https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Collett , Counsel magazine (sent free to all practising barristers) carried an ad for Crown Prosecution Service [CPS] recruitment, which ad had obviously been drafted (and artwork done) in the expectation of Griffin and Collett being convicted. System stitch-up, but it went wrong for (((them))) that time.

Good points. The “push button for degree” and “push second button for ‘master’s degree’ and ‘doctorate’” “university” “degree” system now in place is anachronistic, pointless and, from the purely “career” point of view” of the students, becoming almost worthless for the majority of graduates.

As to the idea of “learning to think”…

DH_Z5-5W0AEvER2

The point is made.

It is interesting to note that some of the most financially successful people in the UK never attended university:

Lord Ashcroft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Ashcroft (he did get a business diploma from a technical college);

Richard Branson https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Branson

Alan Sugar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Sugar etc.

Not that I am commending any of them them as people, but they have certainly managed to create things by thinking outside the box and the usual confines of the educational system.

It is, also, noteworthy how many of those who favour multikulti Britain, mass immigration, Remain(ing) in the EU, a strict Coronavirus “lockdown” etc are those who went straight from school to “university” (of some sort), maybe (for those whose families are more affluent) after a “gap year” (ie an extended holiday in places like Thailand, Goa or wherever). The sort of people who, though often thinking themselves both educated and intelligent, are unused to truly thinking “out of the box”, in other words.

Rishi Sunak and his giveaways

I am far from being fiscally conservative. I disparage penny-pinching and the “pennywise” Scrooge-ism of the Cameron/Osborne/Duncan Smith years (2010-2017, and the 2-3 similar years up to now). I favour Basic Income too, though it has to be basic, not too generous in its early phases. However, the Rishi Sunak measures seem to be driven not by social equity, not by Keynesian expansionism, but by a muddled public relations agenda.

It is quite pathetic how Rishi Sunak is now touted as a future Prime Minister. For one thing, he is Indian! The System wants a non-European to be PM, because it wants the population to become non-European, so naturally it wants a non-European as PM, in 10-20 years.

Apart from that, the giveaways from Rishi Sunak, which might have been justifiable for a few weeks, a month or so, are now set to continue, in full measure, until October! Now, as I said above, I favour Basic Income, but for the furloughed employees and now self-employed, to get up to £2,500 a month until October, while sitting at home, economically inactive, is absurd. There is little or no incentive for many to hurry back to (in many cases) boring work while most if not all of their needs are being met.

Yes, some were making far more than £2,500 a month, but many were not. When you add to the fact that the “furlough” payments will now continue through the Summer and into the Autumn the fear which still exists, created largely by the Government itself, it can be seen that, for many, the idea of having a kind of holiday, in many cases a family holiday is enticing.

The State schools would have broken up in July anyway (am I recalling aright when I “remember” that my old (non-State) school used to break up in mid-June and return only in mid-September? Long time ago now…early 1970s). Endless Summer…

So anyway, many furloughed employees are in no hurry to return to their commuting on crowded trains, or Underground, or buses, or congested roads, and to their jobs, when they can have an extended holiday until October, especially now that the shops, maybe soon even cafes and hotels, will be open for business. People can drive out to national parks, beaches, woods, while knowing that they are being paid by the State until the Autumn.

I wonder a little whether, somewhere in their hearts, those employees and others actually intuit that they might not have jobs or work for long, or are unsure, so are determined to have one last elegiac summer with their families. Just a thought.

Already we see large companies cutting or preparing to cut jobs by the hundreds, by the thousands, once the furlough payments stop. Already companies, large companies, are planning job cuts on a vast scale. As for small companies, many have no real chance of survival.
