Multikulti Britain, 2021. Shows both the slide into near-anarchy under the surface, and also the damage that even a “small” weapon can cause. The calibre of the compact Beretta shown is not noted in that report, but quite likely a .22 (a favourite weapon of MOSSAD in the past).

The EU represses free speech (even more)

https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/04/15/the-eus-war-on-free-speech/

I met the academic lawyer and author of that Spiked article, Professor Tettenborn, a couple of times when I was based in Exeter as a practising barrister (2002-2008). In fact we both sat, with a third person, as “Lords of Appeal”, presiding over a moot contested by Exeter University law students in 2002, and held at the city’s historic Guildhall.

[Exeter Guildhall]
[Exeter Guildhall interior]

My one and only time sitting as a “judge”!

In that Spiked piece, Professor Tettenborn says that Alison Chabloz is “an obsessive anti-Semitic headbanger“, which is not true, in my opinion (and that is strange language —even these days— in a serious piece of analysis, surely?). At least the Professor agrees with me that the prosecution(s) of Alison Chabloz has or have been “abusive“.

On the wider point, the fact is that the repression of free speech in the EU and in the UK is almost entirely driven by the Jew-Zionist element.

Alison Chabloz: application for bail pending appeal

Alison Chabloz today applied for bail pending appeal. She was represented, as on previous occasions, by Adrian Davies of Counsel, and the hearing was at Southwark Crown Court before H.H. Judge Tomlinson.

The application was refused, it seems on the ground that, on the facts of the case, it would be impossible to fashion terms of a suitable order that would prevent Alison from “reoffending” in the period between today and the date of the expected appeal hearing.

What that means is that Alison Chabloz remains in custody, though reports from usually-reliable sources indicate that she will probably be released before the end of this month (though, again probably, forced to wear an electronic tag for a while, absurdly).

At present, Alison’s likely release date will be on, or about, 26 April 2021.

It seems that the date of Alison’s appeal (in the Crown Court) from the conviction and sentence of Westminster Magistrates’ Court will be 3-4 June 2021. God grant her victory!

[Alison Chabloz]

Recently, Steven Silverman of the abusive and malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” cabal and lobby group, wrote (in the Jewish press) that the “CAA” had put out “5 years of effort” into getting Alison Chabloz imprisoned, and now had finally succeeded.

In fact, Alison was briefly imprisoned last year, after yet another malicious attempt by the “CAA”, but was granted bail pending appeal; she then won that appeal (in effect: the CPS abandoned its opposition), and so only served 2 days in the end (plus the days of reception and release).

Slitherman crowed about Alison’s imprisonment then and now, as did several of the (other) usual Jews and “antifa” idiots on Twitter.

Net result? After all that five years of effort —on Twitter, in the Jewish press, in suborning politicians and police officials, as well as the CPS—, the “CAA” has succeeded, this year, in having Alison Chabloz imprisoned for a total of what looks like being rather less than one month.

As against that, Alison Chabloz has received huge publicity and rather a lot of support, as a direct result of the prosecution and conviction. Don’t believe me? Look at the Readers’ Comments appended to the recent Daily Mail report about the case. Thousands supporting her.

More Twitter shenanigans. I noticed an interview with Twitter’s former head of European affairs. Seemed to be a Jew. What a surprise.

In fact, when I was expelled from Twitter in 2018 (after a small pack of Jews targeted me…but what goes around comes around…), I had just on 3,000 “followers”, which I suppose equates to about 6,000 in 2021 (the “follower” count increases for most accounts over time almost automatically). The funny thing was that the level was kept (apparently artificially) just below 3,000; had been for some time. Obviously manipulated.

I have blogged about these matter previously. While I usually steer clear of Scottish politics, not having much studied the subject (and having never even visited the country), the overall effect on Westminster is a different matter.

If the presently-ruling SNP, as Scottish Government, holds some form of referendum and decides to leave the UK, as Hitchens seems to be saying, the Westminster government would have a choice: to repress that, as the Madrid government has done in Catalonia, or to say “au revoir” and “see you again“… I do not think that out and out repression would be the right response.

I do not see any need to remove the “Saltire” —St. Andrew’s Cross— from the Union flag even if Scotland declares “Independence”. The Union flag, now, reflects the historical position or record, nothing more.

The effect on Westminster politics of Scotland leaving the UK would be nuclear, however. I have examined this previously in detail, but in essence the position would be that 59 Scottish Westminster seats would go, 47-48 of them (1 SNP MP had whip removed) at present being SNP seats, only 6 Scottish Conservative seats.

It can be seen that that would leave Labour, in England and Wales, up that well-known creek without a paddle. It would be almost impossible for Labour even to form a minority government at Westminster (though I concede that “never say never” in UK politics).

On 2019 General Election results, that would mean that there would be 591 seats in the House of Commons, of which 364 would be Conservative, 201 Labour, 7 LibDem, 4 Plaid Cymru, and 1 Green (leaving 19 others aside).

On 2017 General Election results, the situation would be Conservative 316, Labour 256, LibDem 8, Plaid 4, Green 1 (leaving 18 others aside).

It can be seen the the Conservative Party would have a 60-seat overall majority on 2019 figures, and a 29-seat overall majority even on 2017 figures. Bearing in mind that the Speaker does not usually vote, and that Sinn Fein never take their seats, those majorities in practical terms increase by about 16 in both scenarii. So either a 76-seat majority or one of 45. Unassailable.

On the strategic level, I imagine that the Kremlin would regard Scottish withdrawal from the UK as a windfall of huge proportions, fracturing the NATO alliance and removing, probably, UK/NATO military, naval, and air deployments from Scottish territory.

On the UK domestic political level, it would mean that a Labour vote might be a wasted vote, and that there would be an embedded Conservative elected dictatorship anchored in Southern England. Labour as we now know it would retreat even more into being the party of the “blacks and browns” and/or public service employees, and there would be a far greater chance for social nationalism to go mainstream. On that basis, then, bring it on!

Twitter anonymity

Seems that the UK Government is proposing to do away with anonymity on Twitter and other social media platforms. Oddly, some of the Jew-Zionist element have been pressing for this, which is ironic in that (alongside others) I (who always tweeted from one Twitter account in my own name) was trolled relentlessly by (mainly) Jews, many of whom affected anonymity, though some were eventually exposed in court in cases involving others.

A couple of the several guilty (almost all connected with the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism”) were Stephen Silverman of South Essex, who trolled under a number of pseudonyms until found out (now using the main account “@ssilvuk”), and Stephen Applebaum of Watford/Edgware, who also used a number of accounts (contrary to Twitter rules…) but who now mainly tweets as “@grubstreetsteve” and “@rattus2384”. Both of those named were exposed by the CAA’s own lawyer during a preliminary hearing in one of the Alison Chabloz private prosecutions (persecutions).

Neither Silverman nor Applebaum were ever charged with any offence for such activities. Silverman was supposed to be interviewed by police but weaselled out of attending, helped by “CAA” lawyers.

I have no great objection to the proposed new social media rules or laws on identity. I myself have never been a “troll”, indeed have been the target for trolls. As I say, mainly Jews and/or “antifascist” deadheads.

In a way, I look forward to the exposure of the identities of certain trolls presently anonymous or pseudonymous. A few of them must have fear in their hearts. Rightly so.

There he is. Chris Whitty. One of the most prominent UK officials during the past year of disinformation, scam, lies, weaponizing of illness, and the Great Reset conspiracy. Not quite as bad, arguably, as Ferguson, but part of the same lot of narrowly-focussed technocrats.

The worst thing that any nation (assuming for the moment that the UK still is a “nation”) can do is put specialized scientists, numbers crunchers, and administrative medics in charge. The misnamed “SAGE” lot are halfway through destroying Britain’s short-term and medium-term future.

Well, I think that we know what we shall have to do, maybe not so far into the future. It will be hard, and will scar not only us but also our descendants, for generations, but it will have to be done.

Ha ha! Laurels and oak leaves.

I have blogged about Greta Nut previously: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/

I like what little I have heard of these “hundred-handers”. They are, it seems, akin to the samizdat (self-publishing) dissidents in the Soviet Union during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. When lies are all the public see, whether in mass media, from the churches, the schools and universities, the police, the corrupt political class, ONE SMALL PIECE OF TRUTH pierces the darkness.

If I had to name one single person who personifies almost everything nasty and disgusting about the British society of, say, 1975-2020, it would have to be Branson.

Remembrance of times past

Saw something that sparked memories. In 2002, having taken a lease of a large country house on the Cornwall-Devon border and, a month or so later having joined provincial barristers’ chambers in Exeter, I was asked to sit as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” at a moot (a mock trial), held in the ancient Guildhall in the main street of Exeter.

My fellow “Lords Justices of Appeal” were a Professor Tettenborn from Exeter University (now at Swansea University and an influential legal academic), and the Mayor of Exeter, a humourless elderly fellow.

The three contenders were all final year law students. The one who stood out and was the unquestioned winner of the contest was a young man of Armenian or part-Armenian origins called Taghdissian. He was far ahead of the other two in both advocacy and law and was a worthy victor. However, before awarding him his laurels, the “Court” (privately, not aired in public) had to consider a technical matter, an ethical violation by him. He nearly lost his otherwise well-merited win.

I spoke to him at the reception afterward. My assessment: a sharp-witted, polite but somewhat arrogant young man who, if he mellowed, might be an asset to our chambers.

A year or two later, I heard that, in the chambers that that person had joined (not the same chambers to which I belonged, though I had in fact told both our senior Clerk and my Head of Chambers, who is now a circuit judge, that he was worth offering a place if he applied), there had been one or two suggestions of inappropriate personal behaviour from that young barrister. I do not think that anything more happened about that, though (and I know only what I was told, though told on good authority).

Now, I have just seen that that student of 2002 is still a member of those other chambers, and has political ambitions, being not only the head of the local Conservatives but having been a several-times candidate.

Taghdissian stood for the Conservatives at the 2017 General Election (for the Exeter seat), but came second. He was also one of six Conservative Party candidates on their party list for South West England in the 2019 European Elections; no Conservative Party candidates were elected. He had previously stood at the 2015 General Election, in the constituency of Cardiff West; placed second.

Taghdissian is evidently determined to get into major-league politics. I shall be interested to follow his progress.

The “cuck” “prince” is now once again talking about “unconscious bias”. What about “unconscious bias” in favour of people like him?

Exactly. An excellent training exercise for the SBS, but in the end the African migrant-invaders won. They are here, probably in some mothballed business hotel (not exactly the Ritz, but, hey! a lot of homeless Brits would take it!). Once their details (probably fake) are logged, the invaders will be given about £50 a week pocket money and eventually found housing that should go to British families and individuals. Disgrace.

Hitchens is right. As for me, I too hate mobs and disorder, but also hate a society where the people are slaves or near-robots. The right balance between conformity and liberty (and licence) must be struck. The UK has, in the past 20 years, and plainly so in the past year, gone too far towards not only a serf-state, but a stupidly-governed serf-state.

Again, I agree with Hitchens. I favour public service broadcasting, but the BBC is no longer that, or only incidentally. Lord Reith’s dictum, Inform. Educate, Entertain, is either ignored now, or complied with only in parody form.

Diary Blog, 18 September 2020, including more thoughts about the “virus” situation and about Communications Act 2003, s.127

Coronavirus

This really is becoming ridiculous. “Local lockdowns”, a threatened second national “lockdown”, the population scared out of their stupid skin by deliberate Government action, people forced to wear facemasks and muzzles (enforced by busybodies and nuisances, including toytown police and “Covid marshals”, meaning retired or unemployable pests wearing yellow jackets and carrying clipboards).

The economy is in a far worse state than most want to admit. Huge numbers of people are losing their jobs, their small businesses etc; the NHS has abandoned vast numbers of non-Coronavirus patients; dentists are mostly still not working; young people leaving school and university have very little chance of a job, let alone a decent job.

The Government has so far bought off dissent and opposition: doctors and some other NHS staff have been chucked 4% pay rises even though most are working far less than they were 6 months ago. Business has received some financial help. Employees not able to “work from home” have been furloughed on 80% pay in many cases. Some are even better off, in real terms, than when they were working! This is madness.

The part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister is a deflated balloon now, and he (andhis mostly Jewish and Indian joke-Cabinet) plainly have no idea what to do except to keep the “Coronavirus” fear propaganda going.

I wonder whether the Government will choose the easy path in November and continue “furlough” payments, or not? “Boris” (Boris-idiot) usually chooses the easy way out, so it may be that payments will continue. If not…

There never should have been a “lockdown” (shutdown) of the economy and society. Only pubs, nightclubs, Tube trains, buses (and those not indefinitel), combined with control of inward flights.

The Government should have concentrated on getting people to behave reasonably (eg by not going to crowded hot venues), washing hands frequently, and so on. Self-help, helped by official advice, not fake “laws” and bullying.

I bet that, once the economy really tanks, the same people who are the greatest zealots for “lockdowns”, facemask muzzles and not opening schools etc will be the most vociferous in wanting more money spent on this, that and the other, money that will not exist thanks to the shutdown of the economy for months (or years?).

Free speech and Communications Act 2003, s.127

I happened to see this article by a Professor Tettenborn, whom I met once or twice when I was a barrister in Exeter 18 years ago, and who is now, it seems, Professor of Commercial Law at Swansea University: https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/09/16/we-need-an-overhaul-of-section-127/

I decided to offer the Law Commission my views on that very bad law, so very badly-drafted and so open to abuse (nb. the paragraph-format has been removed):

Re. Consultation on Communications Act 2003, s.127.

I have just read the following article by a Professor Tettenborn: https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/09/16/we-need-an-overhaul-of-section-127/.
I do not know Professor Tettenborn as such, though I did sit as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” with him in 2002, when judging an Exeter University student moot held at the historic Guildhall in Exeter. I was at the time a barrister in chambers in Exeter.
Please find below links to my blog pages detailing my own experiences around the notorious “bad law” Communications Act 2003, s.127.
While the attached articles are self-explanatory, I should like to make the point that this bad law, poorly drafted, has exercized what I believe a justice of the Court of Appeal once described as “a chilling effect” on legitimate freedom of expression in the UK (one —apparently now-ignored— provision of the 2003 Act even purports to criminalize anything posted online which is deemed “false”!).
This law has been used (misused) by, in particular, the pro-Israel “Zionist lobby” or “Jewish lobby”, to attack those with whom it disagrees. A brief search on the Internet will throw up numerous open admissions to that effect, i.e. that Zionist Jews in the UK and USA have been and are using what is sometimes termed “lawfare” against British people in the UK, meaning the making of politically-motivated attacks on people, complaints to police, social media organizations, professional regulatory bodies.
Two of the most active abuser-organizations of the law in question are “UK Lawyers for Israel” and the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which overlap in terms of membership.
Key individuals engaged in such “lawfare”: Mark Lewis (solicitor, now resident in Israel), Stephen Silverman (resident in South Essex),Gideon Falter (resident in London and elsewhere), and Joe Glasman (resident in London area). There are others, almost all Jewish (there are odd exceptions), as are the three persons just mentioned here.
I myself have been a victim of lawfare, partly detailed in the two articles appended. As a result, I have been disbarred (2016), questioned under caution by police (2017) and expelled from Twitter (2018).
The organizations above now perch like vultures waiting for selected victims to post something online that they can claim is “grossly offensive”. This is political interference, by a special-interest lobby, with the rights of the citizen.
The Communications Act 2003, s.127 is an entirely tyrannical (and badly-drafted) piece of legislation.
Free speech must be protected now. By “free speech” I mean speech, and other communication and publication, on socio-political, historical and religious subjects.
Thank you for your attention.
Please note that I require no reply.

These are the articles mentioned above:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and
https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

I hope that the Law Commission finds my articles and views of interest. At least someone is willing to speak the truth. If no-one else does, I have to…

Professor Tettenborn finishes his article thus: “Nevertheless, this is a proposal that undoubtedly takes the law in the way it should be going, and increases freedom of speech. It may not go as far as you wish, but it is better than nothing. Even better, it is merely a proposal, and the Law Commission welcomes comments on it. This is your chance. You have until 18 December. Any comments should go to online-comms@lawcommission.gov.uk or to Online Communications Team, Law Commission, 1st Floor, Tower, 52 Queen Anne’s Gate, London, SW1H 9AG. Feel free.”

So do it…

I might add that the Professor, though he mentions silly “Count Dankula” and his saluting dog, overlooks victims such as Jez Turner, Alison Chabloz, and me, among others. Still, better half a pint than no pint.

For all their toughness, some of these Russian airborne troops are very decent people. I knew several former members of the Soviet VDV (Air Descent Contingent) when I lived in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 1996-1997. Very solid people.

Their parachuting skills are certainly in a different league from mine! My report card from my first jump (over Salisbury Plain in, I think, 1977, maybe 1978), made out by a former sergeant of the Parachute Regiment, said “exit slow, no position, no count, no effort; landing OK.”! The slow exit referred to was me having to climb out of the small cabin of a Cessna and halfway along the wing, while gripping at a strut, before casting off into the void (backwards…); you were then supposed to get into a certain body configuration in the air, while shouting out a count of 1-10. This is not easy! After that, floating peacefully thousands of feet down to Salisbury Plain was “a doddle”. Do people really do it for fun?!
