Cruel and disgusting individuals

A primary school worker and her boyfriend encouraged a two-year-old to kill badgers and foxes during a barbaric family day out, a court heard.

Paris Jade Carding, 28, of Fawley Grove, Wythenshawe, appeared in 32 video clips showing ‘shocking and horrendous’ incidents of animal cruelty.”

Her boyfriend, Grant Leigh Jnr, 30, of the same address, was also found guilty, reports Manchester Evening News.

Inquiries revealed she had been joined on the barbaric family expedition by her boyfriend and his ex-huntsman father, Grant Leigh Snr, 52, of Marler Road in Hyde, Tameside.”

Will they even be imprisoned? I hope so.

I believe that a 6-month maximum still applies unless the dogs were injured (which raises the maximum to 5 years, the crimes having happened before 2021).

I would not be surprised if the bitch featured in the report gets off lightly because of the mere fact that she has children (who may well grow up to be as bad as the rest of the “family”).

The courts cannot at present punish this sort of depraved and scarcely-human trash with sufficient severity. The prospect of being sentenced soon does not seem to have wiped the smirk off the evil woman defendant’s face…

I think that the newspaper should have published the exact addresses of the defendants in this case.

The above-reported-on is a very nasty series of crimes despite the fact that the government itself, in the past decade, has wrongfully killed untold thousands of badgers in order to placate the farming lobby.

Absurd leniency in sentencing

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10494577/Neighbour-44-harassed-grandmother-putting-washing-machine-constant-spin-cycle.html#comments

I am not at all a “flogger and hanger” but the misplaced leniency shown in that report is just a bad joke. Where is the justice for the victim? I bet that someone who, for example, said something mildly “anti-Semitic”, would get a far heavier sentence (which, after all, would hardly be difficult).

Incidentally, the Daily Mail really ought to employ competent sub-editors, or at least a few literate reporters (I note that the semi-literate scribbler who penned the above report is one “Danyal Hussain”, which may explain the poor English).

Without his unmerited titles and monies, “Prince” Harry would be merely a mildly mentally-disturbed nobody. He has nothing useful to say (let alone to do). Shut up.

If Liz Truss is trying to reprise Anna Karenina (at least in terms of her outfit), then she should re-read the end of the book. Choo choo!

System political puppet-show polling

Other pollsters are broadly in the same area at present, with a slight decrease in the Labour lead over the past couple of weeks.

It is fairly clear to me that, if the misnamed Conservative Party can ditch “Boris”, and if they can then find someone not immediately obviously an idiot to replace him, the two main System parties will be near parity before very long; that suits Con rather than Lab in terms of potential Westminster seats.

Recent local council by-elections continue to show a decrease in the Labour vote-share (with a few exceptions) even where Labour has won the seat in question.

The British (especially English) dilemma remains: if, as voter, you dislike, distrust or despise both main System parties, where do you go? What can you do?

My own political stance is rather different, both in terms of orientation and strategy. I cannot see a way forward as things stand. There has to be a breakdown of both the political system and the economy before a real social-national movement can arise.

Hard to see where Starmer-Labour has any edge over the Cons. Its policies remain similar to those of the Cons, and apart from a sluggish feel to Lab under Starmer, there is the perception, surely correct, that Labour has become a would-be technocratic or “managerial” “we can run workhouses better” party, which I would suggest is not immediately attractive to most voters.

Looking at the near-meltdown of the “Conservatives” (Liz Truss as Foreign Secretary! Nadine Dorries actually in Cabinet! etc) in recent months —indeed, over the past 2 years—, it is amazing that Labour and Starmer are not higher in the polls than they are.

Were a new Con Party leader to come in and sweep away the Truss, Dorries, Priti Patel (etc) detritus, Labour would be dead in the water (again). Corbyn was “Marmite” to many, but Labour was doing better under Corbyn in real elections than it has done under Starmer, so far at least.

Starmer’s trump card, he thinks, is managerial efficiency, and that is certainly the Cons’ weak suit, but Starmer and Labour may find that that is not quite enough. Also, I should imagine that the voters, even if unaware of the Labour Friends of Israel aspect, look at Rachel Reeves, Yvette Cooper etc, and see (rightly, in my estimation) would-be tyrants, full of political correctness and hatred for free speech.

Little Matt Hancock, once “health tsar”, now totally washed-up and irrelevant, wishes the Prince of Wales “recovery” from an “illness” of which said notable would be completely unaware were it not for a “test”!

This whole “Covid” thing, whether you call it “panicdemic”, “scamdemic” or whatever, has just become utterly ludicrous. I think that the public perception of that (albeit that it took the public 2 years to wake up to it) is behind the swift abandonment of restrictions such as the facemask nonsense.

“Boris” may be an idiot, but he has a general cunning re. the public mood. He needs a boost, and getting rid of the restrictions will give him one, even if not as much of a boost as he needs.

Incidentally, I went to Waitrose about 5 days ago. Not very crowded (early evening). As I entered the store, I saw a number of people, all at least 80, all wearing facemasks. About 6-8 of them. My heart sank that the sheep had still not awoken from the brainwashing. However, on going further into Waitrose, I saw that almost all the remaining shoppers (of all ages) were not still wearing the useless bits of cloth or plastic. Thank God for that.

Jacinda Ardern, like Justin Trudeau, will not be removed by petitions, peaceful demonstrations, or even election voting.

Russia must take Eastern Ukraine, Kiev, and the Black Sea littoral soon, or lose the golden moment. Waiting a few weeks might or might not be OK. Waiting a year would be disastrous. The New World Order will by then have built up Ukraine into, if not a NATO state (NATO rules disallow a country to join if its territory is partly-occupied), then a quasi-NATO ZOG puppet state.

A lot depends on weather, as with Barbarossa in 1941. If the mud gets worse, it might impede even the armoured vehicles of 2022, and the mud will not go until the late spring, or summer.

Everything favours the Russian forces…so far. Russia’s air power is overwhelming, its armour also very strong. Russia also has superiority in the numbers, equipment, and training of its ground troops.

A simultaneous seizure of the whole east of Ukraine, of Odessa (with Black Sea coast and the littoral stretching a few miles beyond that coast), and of Kiev, would mean that all major cities of Ukraine except Lvov would be in Russian hands. The capture of Kiev would decapitate the regime of the Jewish clown now posing as President, and there would be no immediate need to seize the half to two-thirds of Ukraine west of the Dnieper and inland.

Admittedly, that might leave considerable anti-Russia forces in the west of Ukraine, and a rump government based on Lvov. However, that rump government would have few sources of funding, be unable to import or export by sea, and would have limited credibility. Russian air power would be able to eliminate any large concentrations of armour left, and the air force of Ukraine is very weak; it would probably by then have more or less ceased to exist.

It is tragic that two peoples closely bound together for so long (over a thousand years) should battle in this way, but Russia has little choice now. For the sake of the whole civilian population of Ukraine, it must strike both swiftly and overwhelmingly. A Blitzkrieg for the sake of mercy, if you like.

More about Ukraine etc

While driving, I listened to BBC Radio 4 PM (old and bad habits die hard). Liz Truss in Moscow. Bloody hell! What an embarrassment this whole Cabinet is! The presenter said that Liz Truss was “talking tough” to the Russians… Talk about a hollow threat! Little Liz Truss, “talking tough” but with literally nothing to back her up.

The British Army, supposedly about 70,000 strong, but (if what I read is correct) with only about 11,000 active front-line troops altogether. Around Ukraine alone, Russia is said to have massed over 100,000.

It would have been better for Liz Truss to have said nothing than to have uttered, as she did, scarcely-veiled threats, when the Russians know that she has nothing in her arsenal with which to speak louder.

Talking about useless people, I also heard Cressida Dick yapping about how she is going to root out police personnel engaged in “racist, homophobic or misogynistic” language. How about the police actually doing their main job instead of doing the bidding of malicious Jew-Zionist agitators such as those in the tiny group of troublemakers called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”?

The CAA specializes in making malicious and often completely false allegations. I have had several made against me in the past decade, most recently only last year: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

[Cressida Dick, Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, talking at New Scotland Yard with Gideon Falter, “Chief Executive” of the tiny “Campaign Against Antisemitism” group]

The police seem all too ready to play the role of “poundland KGB”. There have been thousands of recent examples of police exceeding their powers, and going well beyond what the law actually says (repressive as it anyway now is). There again, Cressida Dick is a Common Purpose drone, and their arrogant motto is “leading beyond authority“, a major reason why idiots like Mizz Dick have been promoted beyond their competence, and why public administration is now beginning to break down.

Meanwhile, I notice that, in Winchester, a statue has now been unveiled to honour a mediaeval Jewish moneylender woman! Comment is superfluous…

It can only be a matter of time before Odessa is taken.

Raus!

So Lavrov, Foreign Minister of a country 72x the size of the UK, with several times the population, and armed forces about 20x as numerous and powerful, got bored listening to the shrill grandstanding of Liz Truss, who carries no weight whatsoever, either militarily, politically, or intellectually. For the UK, this is embarrassingly poor.

As I said, Liz Truss is just an embarrassment, like “Boris”-idiot…

Saturday quiz

This week, I once again managed to beat political journalist John Rentoul, scoring 6/10 as against his 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 7, 8, and 9 (though in fact the only completely impossible question was no.3; the others I had heard of but could not bring to mind).

What was that old rugby song? Ah, yes… “Get down, you Zulu WAR…rior“!

In any case, petitions are a waste of time, even more a waste of time than marching peacefully in the streets (almost always), voting (almost always), tweeting and, yes, blogging (usually).

Exactly what I have been saying on the blog for some time. Of course, the Jews want it all their way, as usual.

Aux armes, citoyens [canadiens]…”

The use of “Bolsheviks” is ahistorical, and unnecessary (despite the implied NWO/ZOG linkage), but the tweet is otherwise correct.

Another person who, in his well-meaning lack of full understanding, thinks that the problem lies with, in this case, Twitter office staff (or Facebook staff, or some newspaper people, or some MPs etc), rather than what might be called “Zionist Occupation Government” [ZOG] and the New World Order [NWO] agenda.

The same sort of well-meaning people often write that “Jews are only a religion” (etc)…

So far, few of those really responsible for such misery have been punished. A few have. Too few.

I agree, much as I despise the “Conservatives”. A Labour government would mean Jewish-lobby puppets Yvette Cooper and Rachel Reeves as Cabinet ministers. Nein danke!

A false choice between two packs of NWO/ZOG globalist puppets is no choice. No choice, no “democracy”.

How can that be “undone”? Discuss…

Incredible. Since 1997 only!

China is now the decisive player on the world stage. The Russia-Ukraine situation shows that plainly.

The USA still has massive nuclear weapons destructive power, but is a colossus on legs of straw, “led”, officially, by a President who is plainly afflicted by old-age dementia.

Ukraine

Interesting analysis, much of which agrees with my own:

The above analysis goes astray towards the end, when it talks about a massive insurgency after an expected Russian victory and occupation. That analysis leaves out the fact that most of the potential Ukrainian insurgents fighting the potential Russian occupation forces would be west of the Dnieper.

I should not expect a continuing Russian occupation west of the Dnieper, except around Kiev and, also, on the Black Sea littoral.

The other factor not given full weight is Russian air power, not only missiles but also planes. Russia has a total of 3,000-4,000 (some estimates say 4,500) fighter aircraft alone (obviously not all on the “Ukrainian front”), whereas Ukraine is said to have about 67. Even if only a third of the Russian fighter strength (and at the lower total) were to be deployed to the relevant theatre, that would be 1,000 jet fighters against as few as 50 Ukrainian. 20 to 1…

Jew found guilty of harassment-related death is hiding in Israel

https://www.timesofisrael.com/france-seeks-extradition-of-french-israeli-hacker-for-death-following-phone-hoax/.

One notices that, on UK Twitter, many of the fanatical Jew-Zionists, who have been harassing non-Jews (and even some anti-Zionist Jews) for years, either have pseudonymous “sock accounts”, or hide full-time behind pseudonyms. Some have been exposed, some not (as yet). Time to go en ratissage, to see if others can be uncovered.

Not mentioned in that Times of Israel report is the fact that the fugitive Jew (how many of them are there?) also targeted brave and now-deceased “revisionist” historian (surely most good historians are revisionist?), Robert Faurisson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Faurisson], in poor health at the time. Well, you would not expect decent behaviour from “them”, would you? In that respect, “they” never disappoint.

Tweets seen

Tweeter “@MaierViv” is worth following, for those who still have a Twitter account. The Jew-Zionists have been trying for years to have her expelled, so far without having succeeded.

Rachel Reeves, MP, Shadow Cabinet minister under Keir Starmer, and (of course) a member of Labour Friends of Israel (like the rest of the Shadow Cabinet). I have as yet been unable to discover whether she is part-Jewish or not; my instinct is that she is, but I have as yet no direct evidence of the fact, if it is a fact.

The (((Lobby)))…

There is a ~33-year cycle, as I have blogged on previous occasions: 1923, 1956, 1989, 2022.

The New World Order was proclaimed openly by President Bush snr. in early 1990. Socialism collapsed worldwide from the 1989 pivot-year, symbolized of course by the literal collapse of the Berlin Wall. South Africa was destroyed as a white European country in Africa, destroyed from within. The UK Labour Party removed “Clause Four” (nationalization etc) from its Constitution in the early 1990s. The USA started its campaign of attacking Iraq, in order to remove the anti-Israel states in general; since then, we have seen Iraq, Syria, Libya and Lebanon effectively neutralized, and Egypt controlled from a distance by bribery and infiltration. A few examples…

The post-1989 effect ripples on, as do the effects from 1956 etc. A new impetus is now brought in, which can be summarized as putting into effect, as far as possible, the “White Genocide” implicit in the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, meaning the destruction of white Europe, and its replacement by a mixed race population, ruled over and/or influenced by (brainwashed by) Jews and part-Jews. That, and the microchipping of the population of the Earth, starting with the advanced countries.

That silly woman, “@furnessgirl”, used to attack me on Twitter before the Jew-Zionist lobby had me expelled. Typical of much of the self-describing “Left” (a meaningless descriptor) on Twitter. Seems to be, like so many of them, fairly comfortably-off, and lives far away from the multikulti urban hellholes which she thinks should be “enriched” by more mass immigration; and so on.

What a surprise— not only a Remain whiner but, as we see so many times, yet another one totally brainwashed by the “panicdemic” propaganda.

As for Henry Williamson, the author of Tarka the Otter, he was a good man, insofar as anyone is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Williamson.

[Tarka the Otter; first edition woodcut]

How typical of the “@furnessgirl” type to dismiss a man such as Henry Williamson with the dismissive or “cancelling” (?) “…a fascist“. Someone who loved animals and wanted to protect them; someone who wanted to avoid a second disastrous 20thC war in Europe (he fought in the first one); someone who saw the good National Socialism had brought to Germany.

As I said, a silly woman, who thinks that she is very clever.

In fairness to her, though, I do agree with her tweet below:

One of the things that infuriate me is that you can be almost certain that, if a British schoolteacher or trainee schoolteacher appears on a TV quiz show, he/she/it will be frighteningly ignorant.

It is hardly surprising that children in the UK so often come out of up to 13 years of full-time primary and secondary education almost devoid of any real knowledge at all, when those who have taught them are themselves often unbelievably ignorant.

I think that a very great deal of the huge amount of money (£99 Billion p.a. at present, 4.5% of national income) which the UK state spends on “education” (as it fondly supposes), is just wasted. https://ifs.org.uk/publications/15858.

In the late 1930s, Britain and France started to offer worthless guarantees to states in Central and Eastern Europe. When Poland called in the chit, in September 1939, and despite the fact that both Britain and France did declare war on the German Reich because of the invasion of Poland by the German Reich, the chit or guarantee was worth nothing.

Poland was still invaded (indeed also invaded from the East, by Soviet forces). No French or British forces fought (or ever could have fought) in or for Poland. As for the Soviet Union, Britain and France did even less to stop its 1939 invasion of Poland; even the words were muted.

Now we see the UK, which has virtually no useful armed forces anyway, alternately threatening Russia (over Ukraine, which was part of the Muscovite state for well over a thousand years, and has had less than 30 recent years of chaotic and corrupt “independence”), and then back-pedalling. The less Liz Truss says, the less foolish she will seem.

When push comes to shove, what then? The USA has been pumping weapons and money into the Kiev regime’s reserves. Let’s say that Russia annexes Eastern Ukraine, where the population are heavily pro-Russian. The shambolic army and militias of the Kiev regime will be defeated. Will the USA declare then war on Russia? I very much doubt that. Obviously, the same applies to the UK. That is not even a question.

In the end, Russia will prevail here. Its leaders may want to win without war, as per Sun Tzu: “to win without war is the supreme excellence“: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu.

Having said that, even if the Russian leaders would prefer to achieve victory without having to fight, there is no doubt that they will fight if they have to. That applies particularly knowing, as they do, that the opposing forces are unable to resist for long, and that the USA will not want to get involved directly.

Russia would prefer to have a referendum in Eastern Ukraine (only) on whether that region should reintegrate with Russia. Such a referendum would result in a —genuinely— 95%+ vote in favour. Somewhat similar to what happened in Crimea.

The Kiev government would never accept such a referendum. It stands by its view on “territorial integrity”, but that integrity rests on a mere 29-30 years of “independence”, out of about 1,100 years. In Soviet times the Ukraine-Russia border was really just lines on a map, almost meaningless.

So there we have it. The tendentious Defence Correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, Con Coughlin (very pro-Israel etc)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Con_Coughlin] scribbles that “this is only the start, if we appease Putin now“. So…what does Coughlin want Britain to do? Fire our —few— nuclear missiles on Russia?

Not very clever as a strategy, when dozens (at least) of Russian missiles would then devastate the small UK (which is only a 72nd of the area of Russia). Fight for Ukraine in Ukraine? Again, unintelligent, when the Russian armies massed near Ukraine are already twice the size of the whole British Army.

Anyway, why? Why should British soldiers fight for the Kiev regime? It is a corrupt —and very Israeli-dominated— cabal, which has little legitimacy.

If the UK helps Russia, we can open new trading links, get cheap natural gas, and forget about trying to be a poundland world policeman; that was finished half a century ago at least.

It’s KIEV, not “Kyiv”…

Jewish National Fund UK chair: ‘Jews have no future in England

In an interview with the Jerusalem Post earlier this month, Jewish National Fund UK chair Samuel Hayek warned British Jews may “feel more comfortable” after the defeat of Jeremy Corbyn but “the underlying issues have not gone away”.

In addition to suggesting British Jews should consider emigration, he said: “Let’s assume that Corbyn would have become prime minister. We all know our lives would have changed without recognition. We cannot even understand it fully.”

“Is it easy to sell their businesses?” he asked. “Could they do it quickly? Where would they go? To South Africa, the United States, Canada – hopefully, Israel.”

A Jew like Giles Coren can suggest that someone (Mira bar-Hillel, a Jewish, but anti-Zionist, journalist) who is both named, and known to Coren, be killed by Jew Zionists, but will the police take any interest? No, of course not; yet if you, as an English person, say “boo” not even to a Jew but about him (or her, or it), the skies will fall in as the police —or even, maybe, their “anti-terror command”— play at being a poundland KGB.

Labour Party

Interesting, and typical of many tweets seen this morning. Looks as if Keir Starmer’s Jewish-lobby “Labour” Party (Rachel Reeves, like Starmer and all his Shadow Cabinet, being a fervent member of Labour Friends of Israel) is not convincing many. I concede that Twitter is very unrepresentative, but offline I have not met an openly Labour supporter or voter for about 7 years.

That is one reason why I took a very early look, a few days ago, at the Erdington by-election. That looks very much like it is going to be a straight Labour-Conservative fight, in a situation where both main System parties have lost public confidence. The question is, which party is hated and/or despised the most?

In recent by-elections, the Conservative Party has done badly, losing two hitherto safe Con seats, but to the LibDems as relatively uncontroversial third party, not to Labour. Both Chesham and Amersham, and North Shropshire, were considered safe Con seats. Birmingham Erdington has been a safe Labour seat since the 1930s (with a near-upset in 1983).

The Conservative Party vote-share fell hugely in the two by-elections mentioned; it also fell at the 2021 Batley and Spen by-election (won narrowly by Labour), and that at Old Sidcup and Bexley (won easily by the Conservatives).

However, in all those by-elections except Old Bexley, the Labour vote also fell, and by a considerable amount. The Labour percentage vote-shares were: Batley and Spen 35.3%; Old Bexley and Sidcup 30.9%; North Shropshire 9.7%; Chesham and Amersham 1.6%.

Another, earlier, 2021 by-election, was that held at Hartlepool, in March 2021. There, in a seat always Labour since its establishment in 1974 (and usually also in the predecessor constituency), and where Labour candidates almost always scored over 50% (Peter Mandelson 60.7% in 1997), Labour’s losing (to Conservatives) 2021 by-election vote-share was only 28.7%.

None of Labour’s 2021 by-election results can be plausibly laid at the door of the departed Jeremy Corbyn.

Out of those 5 by-elections, only one success (Batley and Spen) and only one increase in vote-share (Old Bexley and Sidcup). To me, the results show that Labour is being seen as not only unpopular but as actually irrelevant. As I have noted before, the Keir Starmer “pitch” to the public is, more or less, “we support what the Government is doing, on the whole, but it should be doing it better, and while down on one knee and wearing a facemask“. Not very inspiring.

The odds must be that the Birmingham Erdington by-election will go Labour’s way, but I am unsure about that. Until the past few weeks, I should have said that the Cons were only a couple of points behind Lab in the constituency. Now? Hard to say. This may be a battle between two blocs of apathy…

Islington North: more Labour Party news

A high-profile Labour woman who lost her seat ‘thanks to Jeremy Corbyn‘ should be the candidate to end his Commons career, it was suggested last night.

Party insiders say that one of several female MPs who lost in the disastrous 2019 election would be Labour’s best choice to stand against the former leader in his North London stronghold, Islington North.

Mr Corbyn is currently barred from standing as the Labour candidate in the next General Election because of a bitter antisemitism row with Sir Keir Starmer.” [Mail on Sunday]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10382919/Labour-woman-lines-Jeremy-Corbyn-London-stronghold-Islington-North.html

I think that one can guess what (((type))) of individual thought up that bitter and vindictive “pound of flesh” idea…

Mary Creagh was one of the most active and fervent pro-Israel drones in the Commons; Ruth Smeeth, half-Jewish and descended on one side from East London gangsters, was exposed by Wikileaks as listed as a “to be strictly protected” secret informant by the U.S. Embassy in London. In effect, an agent or spy, to put it one way. It is not known (by me) whether she was paid for that. Before becoming an MP, she was also employed by the Israeli propaganda operation known as BICOM.

Both women were or are members of Labour Friends of Israel. Both were found well-paid jobs heading non-governmental orgs after the electors of their constituencies disposed of them.

As to what might well happen if one of those two is selected by the Jewish-lobby “Labour” Party now headed by Keir Starmer to contest Islington North, that might be interesting.

Islington North is a very solid Labour stronghold. The last election there won by the Conservative Party was in 1935. No Labour Party candidate since 1931 has recorded a vote-share below 40%.

Corbyn has been MP for Islington North since 1983, and his peak vote-share of 73% (in 2017) exceeded even that which he achieved in 1997 (69.3%) and that of the winning Labour candidate in 1945 (67.4%). In 2019, his vote was at 64.3%. Only when he was first elected in 1983 did his vote-share dip below 50% (40.4%), and that was because the Social Democratic Party stood, and garnered a vote of 22.4% (Con 25.3%).

How much of that solid Labour voting is for Labour label, and how much for Corbyn? We have seen many past examples of former Labour MPs standing as independent or small-party candidates, only to be swept away. No doubt Starmer and “Labour Friends of Israel” hope that that will happen in this case. I doubt it.

This situation is, as far as I know, unprecedented. Former Labour ministers have stood against Labour in the past (notably in the SDP days), and with mixed but generally poor results. Never, however, has a former Labour Party leader stood for election in a constituency, against an official Labour Party candidate.

Corbyn is extremely well-known, to say the least, both in the country generally (since 2015) and in the constituency (since 1983; 38 years…).

I should think that, in such unique circumstances, Corbyn would have every chance if he stood as Independent, or Independent Labour. I doubt that, with his background, he would start a new party.

The Conservative Party vote-share in the constituency peaked at 66.07% in 1931; since then, there has been an uneven but gradual decline overall. In the 1980s and 1990s, mostly in the 20%-30% range, and lower since then: the elections 1997-2019 show 12.9%, 10.8%, 11.9%, 14.2%, 17.2%, 12.5%, and finally 10.2%.

See the direction of travel below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islington_North_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Election_results

There is every chance that the Conservative vote will slip below 10% —maybe even below 5%— next time. That means that the contest will be between Corbyn (if he stands) and whoever Labour selects to oppose him. Corbyn may well be the front-runner.

As to the LibDems, their vote peaked at 29.9% in 2005, and in the last few elections has been in the 10%-20% range (15.6% in 2019). It may be that they could mount something of a challenge in a 4-horse race. If Con votes joined with LibDem votes, on 2019 figures, that might add up to 25% or so, but it seems unlikely even then, that they could do better than a second place.

A situation to watch.

Mary Creagh

I just saw a comment by one of Mary Creagh’s former Wakefield constituents:

Mary Creagh was our mp, unfortunately. She is the most arrogant, self-important, waste of space. She literally did nothihng for the Wakefield area. Her attitude is appalling, she just could not be bothered with the area. Goodness knows why people voted for her. Islington is welcome to her. Strange isn’t it that she is still blaming someone else for her loss. She lost because she asserted remain when our area had voted leave and still the penny has not dropped for her. Her sense of entltlement is staggering. Watch out Islington!

Mary Creagh had her eyes on things far more important to her than the poor people of Wakefield, namely the interests of Israel and the Jewish lobby, followed by the pro-EU Remain campaign. Her own career and money too, of course…

Seeing TV reportage of Mary Creagh crying in anger and frustration, after the voters of Wakefield binned her, was stellar.

Addendum: saw this comment about Islington Labour voters: “Young professionals who have never lived through a Labour government. Could they cope through another Winter of Discontent with constant strikes, sitting my candlelight with no heating and rubbish piled up in the street?

The “”Winter of Discontent” myth has become as ingrained as the old “holo (you know what)” farrago! I was in the UK (aged 22) during the said winter. There were strikes in some parts of the economy, yes, for a few weeks in some cases. Few people had their electricity supply interrupted; same with heating. As for rubbish piling up, yes, but only in some areas, and for a few weeks. The whole thing was short in duration and limited in effect(s). It was not the Siege of Leningrad. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_of_Discontent.

The “Winter of Discontent” has become one of those things that many think is so, but is only partly so, a bit like the aforesaid “holo” stuff and various other situations (eg that the UK only had basic foodstuffs until about 20 years ago, or that there were large numbers of blacks living in the UK in the 1960s or even 1950s.

You often see people moaning also about how terrible the whole of the 1970s were, with light and heat cut off because of strikes, and similar “facts”. In fact, the “three day week” and the power cuts affected mainly businesses, lasted weeks not months (in late 1973) and few domestic users were even affected. A few, for short periods. Yet you see people, even those who were there at the time spinning nonsense in newspaper comments sections, or on Twitter, about how they spent much of the 1970s without heat, light, or even food!

It does make me wonder about the fallibility of human memory.

“Doctor”? Hardy ha ha…The law should be clarified as to who is entitled to use the designation and who should not (e.g. someone whose doctorate is merely a Ph.D. based on a study of a strike in a match factory in 1888…).

Rod Liddle strikes me (though I have never met him) as a remarkably unpleasant person, with some of whose views (not re. the “panicdemic”, obviously) I agree, from time to time. Why anyone should think his views on medicine in any way authoritative, I have no idea; Liddle’s mature-student degree was in Social Psychology: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_Liddle.

Sometimes, non-violent resistance can work, if the regime opposed is not completely brutal and/or deranged; and if the time is right. It worked in the Baltic republics, the DDR and other Soviet satellites in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and indeed in the Russian core of the Soviet Union in the same period, but it would never have worked in, say, 1970s Cambodia.

Diary Blog, 29 June 2021: mainly about the “panicdemic”, the Labour Party, and the Batley and Spen by-election campaign

Batley and Spen

I continue to update my blog post about the upcoming by-election on a daily basis: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/. 2 days remaining.

Despite being generally a “good citizen” (most of the time, I think), I have sympathy with that attitude. We have had an entirely faked communitarianism forced upon us since the “panicdemic” started (started to be promoted). All those idiots clapping on command outside their houses, and so on. The entirely pointless facemask nonsense. The hero-worship of the (not always but quite often) rather poor NHS. All of that.

Does that count as “sex work”?

I blogged about Sajid Javid a couple of years ago, when he was first appointed to Cabinet: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/25/the-boris-johnson-cabinet/. An ex-Muslim pro-Israel fanatic and Ayn Rand devotee.

Yet Starmer says that he will stay on whatever the result. He is not his own man. He is “under orders”…

When I had a Twitter account (the Jew cabal on Twitter had me expelled in 2018), I was occasionally retweeted by that tweeter, “@JohnEdwards33”, a pleasant-seeming old stick who is a former fire chief from the West Midlands (I think). I say that despite his calling me “a dreadful fascist”!

As I have blogged, Labour is a party which started off as a “working class” party for organized industrial workers, miners, shop workers etc. That party then took on a “middle class” and/or intellectual element from the 1930s; that “coalition” was the basis for the Labour governments of 1945-51, 1964-70, and 1974-79.

The migration-invasion of those years, though resented by many white English people (it mainly affected England), was on a relatively-limited scale compared to what came later, particularly from 1997, when the Jews in the Tony Blair government started to import millions of immigrants quite deliberately, in order to destroy British (esp. English) society. About 5 millions were imported in those years (1997-2010). That has contiued unabated, and the immigrants or migrant-invaders have been breeding prolifically.

Labour slowly, since 1997, has become a party largely supported by the “blacks and browns”. It kept its support in the public sector workforce, still largely white and English/Welsh/Scottish, until 2010, but the wider white electorate was starting to abandon Labour, just as Labour had abandoned those people.

In Scotland, Labour collapsed as the SNP rose and then reached the First Past The Post tipping point. The SNP went from 6 Commons seats in 2010 to 50 in 2015. Scottish Labour went in the opposite direction, from 46 to 1. Scottish Labour now has only 16,000 members. Out of 5.4 million inhabitants in Scotland.

In England, under Corbyn, Labour did better than often thought in 2017, but since then its inherent contradictions have created fissures in its structure and its popular support. It still has the support of the blacks, broadly, but they and the mixed-race are only between 5% and 10% of the population.

The traditional white English Labour-voters at first kept with Labour, but the combination of relentless Jewish-produced propaganda against Corbyn, and the perception that Labour was basically for blacks and browns, for mass immigration etc, meant that those white voters just voted with their feet. Almost as many abstained in 2019 as defected to other parties:

There was, under Corbyn, the feeling that Labour at least believed in public services, but since Starmer took over, we have heard time and again the pathetic refrain parrotted by, again, Kim Leadbeater this week, about government having “no magic money tree“. The Rachel Reeves song…

The Muslims were still almost Labour en bloc in 2017, but since Corbyn was replaced by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, they have begun to abandon Labour too. At Batley, they have an alternative in Galloway and his Workers’ Party. The Muslims do not all support Galloway, but will vote for him to hit out at Starmer’s Labour Party.

As for white voters at Batley, I suspect that those who would never vote Conservative will either not vote at all, or may vote for Galloway or one of the other small-party candidates, as a protest.

Labour finds itself a nullity: it abandoned actual “socialism”, or social democracy, in the 1990s; it destroyed much of the feeling of Britain as a nation by importing millions of non-Europeans and further millions from other parts of Europe; it follows the “Conservative” line on economics and social welfare (indeed is now more “conservative” than the Conservatives!); and despite its lying by-election leaflets at Batley, it is completely under the control of the Jewish lobby and Israel.

So who would vote Labour now, broadly? The West Indians, most of the Twitterati (twits), some students, remnants of traditional Labour voting. Few others. Maybe 25% or so of the population, if that. Yes, polls still give Labour up to 35%, but that is probably because people do not want to say “don’t know” or the like.

I may be mistaken, but I can see the Conservatives winning fairly clearly at this by-election, followed, quite likely, by Galloway, then Labour. The Labour vote? At a guess, around 25%.

Interesting: “…came back with eggs“. Came back from where? Parked cars nearby? Houses nearby? Sounds as if the attackers were locals, and as if Labour is now very very unpopular in the Batley and Spen area. Reminds me of the old joke: Soviet leader— “you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.” Soviet citizen— “well, we see the eggshells, but where’s the food?“…Labour Party, take note.

People dislike the present government but, crucially, still prefer it to a Starmer (or any Labour?) one (which in any case cannot exist before 2024).

So out in 6 years, as against being taken in a helicopter to a point about 20 miles offshore in the Atlantic and dumped.

…and at Wimbledon, a load of over-wealthy idiots were clapping the woman who developed that vaccine.

The facemask nonsense must go. Now.

Has that Tom Peck scribbler yet stopped a milkshake or an egg?

Quite. It seems that millions of people in the UK are in need of a good-quality bullshit detector…

Well, the fact is that the Labour candidate is a former or one-time personal trainer who has no political experience, and indeed who only joined Labour about 6 weeks ago. She seems to get her income out of the Jo Cox Foundation “charity”, if I am not mistaken in what I read. If she were to become the MP, it would be very nice for her but useless for the Batley population; and Boris-idiot would still have a Commons majority of 80.

I also take with a pinch of salt the Con Party candidate, but it surely stands to reason that he might be able to attract investment or assistance from central government. He might not be able to, true, but there is every reason to suppose that Kim Leadbeater would not and could not. In any case, she is a poorly-educated local woman whose ideas about finance and government spending only stretch as far as parrotting rubbish about “magic money trees”. Frankly, she comes across to me as an idiot.

The fear engendered by lying “panicdemic” propaganda has largely though not entirely dissipated, but the stupid “rules” laid down, like the asinine facemask nonsense, have almost taken on a life of their own. Few are really afraid of suddenly being “struck down” by “Covid” (which for most is akin to a mild cold) but many are scared, not of “the virus” but of the social disapprobation if they ditch the facemasks.

This government has spent £300 BILLION (and rising) pointlessly on this farrago of nonsense.

Batley and Spen by-election

I continue to update my by-election blog post daily: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/. 5 days left before polling.

“What is Starmer hoping for?” asks tweeter “@Stephen46723144”. Nothing. He is a puppet of the Jew-Zionist lobby. He was inserted into the Labour Party leadership in order to return Labour to the NWO/ZOG fold. He would of course like to be Prime MInister, as a dyed-in-the-wool System careerist, but everything he does reflects his basic allegiance to Jews and Israel. Labour Party interests or prospects come second or third.

Exactly what I have been saying in my blog for a quite long time now— Labour was once the party of both the British “working classes” and of the “progressive” somewhat more affluent. I suppose that both the 1945-51 Attlee governments and the 1960s Wilson governments exemplified that “alliance”.

The Blair-Brown governments of 1997-2010 were a kind of parody of the foregoing. The “workers” were there notionally, but actually without power or influence. The affluent middle classes and many of the Jews both supported and influenced “Blairism”, of which mentally-disturbed Brown’s government was a fag-end.

Over the years from 1945, and especially from the 1980s, the demographic changes in the UK altered the picture, in that mass immigration brought in at first hundreds (1950s), then thousands, then (from the 1980s) millions of immigrants, who started to breed. Most voted Labour.

Other social changes occurred. The industrial “proletariat” disappeared, along with most heavy industry. Their descendants became a latter-day “lumpenproletariat” of (sometimes) drug-abusing “chavscums” etc, or the abused insecure workers or “precariat” of the “gig economy” and the “click economy”.

Traditional ideas did not fit. “Socialist” (supposedly socialist) scribbblers and approved “talking heads” on TV, such as Owen Jones, the part-Jewish faux-revolutionary, tried to write about the “working class” but ended up conflating that old designation with the new “precariat”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chavs:_The_Demonization_of_the_Working_Class

The occasional clips of real people, concerned that Labour was not listening, especially but not exclusively about mass immigration, have become, as people now say, “iconic”:

Telling…as were the remarks Brown later made.

…and look at his later television comment. Questions about immigration from Mrs. Duffy were “irritating“. Yes, it all looks very different at Bilderberg, or at the meetings of Labour Friends of Israel…

Then we have the complete or almost complete takeover of national (i.e. London-centric) Labour by the wealthy (mainly Jew) element. Blair and Brown were both Labour Friends of Israel members, as were and are so many now again at the top of Labour. Rachel Reeves, many others, including of course Keir Starmer.

Labour became, slowly, the party of mainly, those paid from public funds one way or another, and the party of the ethnic minorities generally. After Corbyn came to prominence, Jews mostly left Labour, but the blacks and browns remained and became Labour’s new core vote.

In Scotland, the former Labour voters went mostly to the faux-nationalist SNP. In England, real social nationalism was all but banned, and now even more so. Labour voters began simply not voting. The graphic below shows that, in the 2017 and 2019 general elections:

The white English have largely abandoned Labour. The 2021 Hartlepool by-election showed that. Far more abstained than changed allegiance from Labour to Conservative, taking the whole eligible electorate into account.

Look at the 2021 Chesham and Amersham by-election: Labour 1.6%. Yes, former Labour voters voted tactically, to deny the Conservatives a win, but still very telling, in my view.

Now we see that, at Batley, the Muslim brown voters will not, most of them, vote for the Labour candidate, because she is white, lesbian, and Labour, which is now led by a puppet of the Jewish/Israel lobby. Also, they have an alternative for whom to vote: Galloway.

However, the white English former Labour voters are also jumping ship, because the Labour candidate is just someone pushed in to try to get a “sympathy vote”, her sister having been assassinated by a socio-political dissident in 2016.

The English voters at Batley think that a Conservative MP might get more help from a Conservative central government. As well as that, the local council has ignored white English people for years.

The Labour candidate has not defended the English schoolteacher driven from his job and home by Muslim crazies.

The by-election at Batley has brought into focus the sheer uselessness of Labour. It has not opposed the Government on so many recent issues: the facemask nonsense, “lockdowns”, social security etc. Without most English and without most Muslim/brown people supporting it, where does Labour go? The Twitterati twits, NHS zealots and West Indians only add up to about 15% of the population…

Can you imagine a creature like Dawn Butler as Leader of the Labour Party? Ha ha! “I’m lovin’ it”…In fact, now that Labour is (in terms of voters at least) largely black and brown, she might fit well, though of course that will be the end of Labour as a major force nationally.

The Whigs disappeared, the Liberal Party declined and disappeared, the LibDems are disappearing; Labour is sliding now. “Conservatives”? Like the Bar, the Conservatives have kept the names and titles, but not the content…

They are also not young.

The second one realizes that Labour is falling to pieces, though.

Whether the Hancock scandal will have much effect on the upcoming by-election is doubtful. It may have, it may not have. My instinct says no.

Exactly what I said yesterday in answer to a commentator on my blog. Hancock will be kept alive like the wrapped-up fly in a spider’s web, until the spider decides to utilize him. Then— gone. That might be tomorrow, it might be in 6 months or more. The only thing that might expedite it is if Boris-idiot think that Hancock remaining in post will lose the by-election at Batley and Spen.

[Update, a day later: well, Boris-idiot did not sack him, but Hancock did not want to be a fly wrapped up for later use, so resigned. That’s him binned…]

Ha ha! Ecce the white “me too”, pro-BLM Labour Party supporter! These idiots must have a death wish! At first I thought that that comment was parody, but no!

All very well, but what is the point of this? It is akin to a letter to a newspaper, or a blog, posing as a by-election candidature. As I say, I have no quarrel with what is said, but this person and her party are a one-issue party, pretty much.

I have to admit that Ms. Waters seems more personable than I had thought, with a pleasant Irish manner.

Diary Blog, 10 May 2021, with thoughts about Rachel Reeves and the floundering Labour Party

Morning music

Labour “getsmuchworse”

I happened to see the tweet below, which mentions events from eight years ago.

Now Rachel Reeves is back in the news, having been appointed Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer.

What do we know about Rachel Reeves? Wikipedia has this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Reeves.

I have been trying to discover whether Rachel Reeves is part-Jewish. No firm conclusion, though my instinct says yes. Be that as it may, the Labour Party is something of a family business for Rachel Reeves and her sister Ellie [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellie_Reeves]: both Labour Party MPs, and the sister, Ellie Reeves, is married to another Labour MP, John Cryer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Cryer].

All are pro-Israel, as far as I have been able to discover. Certainly Rachel Reeves is. She is the Vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel, supports the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, and has even written one chapter of a book which was effectively Israeli propaganda.

Rachel Reeves is married to one Nicholas Joicey, a former Treasury civil servant who is currently Finance Director-General at the Department of Work and Pensions [DWP]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Joicey. He was at one time speechwriter for Gordon Brown.

A few indicators to Rachel Reeves’ character and views:

Reeves was named in 2011 by The Guardian newspaper as being one of several MPs who employ unpaid interns, a practice that some maintain may breach the National Minimum Wage Act 1998.” [Wikipedia]

In 2013, she caused controversy, especially among the left-wing members of the Labour Party, by stating that they would be “tougher” than the Conservative Party in cutting benefits.” [Wikipedia]

She caused controversy in early 2015 by stating “We [Labour] don’t want to be seen, and we’re not, the party to represent those who are out of work”.” [Wikipedia]

Reeves’ parliamentary credit card was stopped at the start of 2015, owing to a debt of £4,033.63, which she subsequently repaid.[33] In 2018, she claimed £188,686 in expenses, of which £149,514 was in staffing costs and £22,089 in office costs, £30,422 more than the average parliamentary claim of £158,264.” [Wikipedia]

So there we have it. Once you take away some kind of early-ingrained Labour tribalism, there is nothing “socialist” or even “social-democratic” there. I am not certain that she can even be described as an example of “managerial socialism” or the like, in the latter-day Blair-Brown sense.

Rachel Reeves is an economist, and I am sure that she has no difficulty separating the concept of running a national economy from that of running one’s own domestic finances, but her apparent inability to prevent herself running up (interest-free?) credit card debt (paid for by the taxpayer?) does sit awkwardly both with her new status and with her former pronouncements attacking the unemployed, poor, those on State benefits etc. Particularly as she and her husband (his salary being about £170,000 p.a.) are getting about half a million pounds in pay, expenses and perks annually out of the public purse…

Where does that leave the Labour Party? Up that well-known creek without a paddle, arguably.

As I have repeatedly blogged, the Labour Party now has almost nothing in common with what it was in 1930, 1960, 1990, or even 2000. The same could be said of the Conservative Party, but we are talking about Labour at present.

The Keir Starmer and Rachel Reeves Labour Party will find it hard to appeal to any defined bloc of voters. Even in 2010 (after “Labour” had brought in the ATOS carpetbaggers etc), the poorer sections of society could still view Labour as at least better, less harsh, than the Conservative Party. Now (and now that Corbyn and his supporters have been purged), it is hard to see that voter-demographic as bothering to go out to vote Labour.

Another bloc of voters, those not “affluent” but not actually poor, also probably see nothing to vote for in the Starmer and Reeves Labour Party.

What about the more affluent? Maybe. Some. The metropolitan pro-EU types. Those, maybe. However, they are a minority, a fairly small minority. We have just seen that Labour’s new (supposed) stronghold, London, almost toppled Sadiq Khan from the Mayoralty, despite the fact that the Conservative Party put up a West Indian who was almost a joke candidate.

Labour is said to have a great deal more traction among “the young”, whether that means the under-25s or just under-40s. Perhaps, but whether that will be true now that stale Starmer and Reeves are in control, I wonder. Maybe not.

Labour may find itself reduced to being a niche party for certain black-brown “communities”, and for some of the publicly-paid employees.

Then there is the question of the SNP, the only bloc of MPs likely to give support (on conditions) to any minority Labour government which might be formed somewhere down the line. If Scotland breaks away, that is Labour’s last lifeline gone.

There was much to laugh at in Corbyn-Labour, but this Starmer/Reeves idea of a “managerial”, or “we can run workhouses better!” pseudo-Labourism is doomed from the start.

If Labour wants to have even a semblance of a chance at electoral success, it has to get rid of Starmer, Reeves and their like.

Where Jews exist in any but very small numbers, non-Jews will always be exploited, and can never be free. That is as true in Europe (and including the UK) as it is in the Middle East.

We in the UK are as much occupied as are the Palestinians; the (((control))) in the UK is simply more sophisticated.

So what? What does it matter whether it is “anti-Semitic”? There is nothing wrong with being “anti-Semitic”. Au contraire…

Interesting. I have to admit that I had not heard of the Yorkshire Party before today.

Good to see that “European Housewife” is still around.

Long long ago, in the mid-1970s, I knew a woman, now I imagine long-deceased, whose maiden name was de Lusignan. The de Lusignans were the Norman rulers of Cyprus about 900 years ago.

That woman, rumoured to be part-Afghan despite the other supposed ancestry, had something of the look of “European Housewife”. I remember her well. I last encountered her when exiting the Aeroflot office in London, sometime in the early/mid 1990s. She was walking down Piccadilly. I would probably not have recognized her, not immediately, but a lady accompanying me did, at a slight distance too. There was a brief conversation on the pavement. The de Lusignan lady was amazed when it was pointed out to her that I was the Ian she had known in 1976. She had not at all recognized me.

What a better world we would all now be living in had the Second World War either not started (on the Western Front especially), or had it stopped in 1940 (after Dunkirk), or even had it stopped, or been limited in its scope, in and after 1941.

Heard half an hour of what used to be called the BBC’s “flagship news show on radio”. Do they have the cheek to still use that description? I hope not. Terrible. Dull in the extreme: Covid Covid Covid blah blah, Covid Covid Covid blah blah. Rubbish presented as news and “analysis”. Pathetic.

Rachel Reeves, the pro-Israel lobby MP (nominally “Labour”) was on, talking about David Cameron-Levita, Boris Johnson, and the breaking of the Ministerial Code. All very earnest, superficially, and I am sure that a few people in the Westminster Bubble were interested, but not 99% or more of the British people.

BBC Four

Now it seems that the BBC may be about to kill off or ruin one of the few decent parts of the BBC still left, television station BBC Four. Typical. The BBC must be defunded. It is more or less “Soviet TV” now, just a craven mouthpiece of the government in power. It has lost all legitimacy and credibility.

Interesting discussion. Britain should have a scientific institute akin to the one-time SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe]. Part of such an institute would be for research into history, archaeology, heredity etc, but another and equally important part would be devoted to research into ways to evolve humanity in general and European/”white” people in particular to higher levels; in other words, the creation of higher race-forms in every way. The “design” of a higher race, if you like.

Believe it or not, the bastard being discussed is David Cameron-Levita! I thought that there could scarcely be a worse Prime Minister…until Theresa May and then Boris-Idiot came along. All three part-Jew, by the way… [addendum: I have now been told that the PM under discussion was in fact Blair. “Best PM ever“? I think not! A complete NWO/ZOG puppet, whose hastily-passed laws and policies still impede us today].

Startling ignorance of course, though rather highlighting the Hitchens “Oxford” obsession (he lives there). Not everyone knows the sex of even famous people, if the names are unusual.

When I started Bar practice in London in the early 1990s, I was given one of my relatively few Crown Court cases (I always did more public, administrative and civil law, as compared to criminal).

The case involved the sale of counterfeit tapes, and was set down for trial, to be heard at Snaresbrook Crown Court. One of the artistes allegedly copied was Shabba Ranks. My first question to the clerk at Chambers was “who’s she?“. Not a good start (it’s a “he”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shabba_Ranks).

That was not my first Crown Court trial (the first having been a case of “s.18” GBH, aka “GBH with intent”, a serious charge carrying a maximum sentence of life imprisonment), but it was at any rate one of the first few.

I was always lucky in the Crown Court, partly because, as a mainly non-crime barrister, I never graduated to the really serious criminal cases such as murder, terrorism etc. The most serious cases rarely result in acquittal, because the evidence is usually very strong and often overwhelming.

Well, anyway…more by luck than judgment, I did manage to do OK in my counterfeit tapes trial, after (on the first morning), the Prosecution told me that they were discontinuing (on the ground of cost, the cost of proving via forensic science that the tapes concerned actually were not genuine). Thus my defence, based mainly on an arguably implausible alibi, was never tested.

Incidentally, I was also lucky in that “GBH with intent” trial, held in what was then the Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court (the building in Parliament Square now occupied by the Supreme Court of the UK). In that trial, the defendant, despite having stabbed the thuggish “victim”, and then having poured boiling oil over him, was acquitted on the ground of self-defence.

I suppose that at least Andrew and William could fly away, piloting their own helicopters, when it all went wrong…

We think of the Wall and the Stasi when we think of the GDR. But few are aware of the political correctness, the children stuffed into nurseries while their mothers were marched off to wage-slavery, the comprehensive schools and the contempt for the church.”— Take away the Wall and the Stasi and the rest is pretty much the same as 2021 Britain. Maybe that is the point that Hitchens is trying to make, in fact…

It always makes me laugh when some uncultured, semi-educated “antifascist” idiot and/or Jew calls social-national people “knuckledraggers” or the like; low culture, education, or intelligence is at least as common, I would say far more so, on the so-called “antifascist” side.

Mental illness is also very prevalent on the “antifascist” side; I have even blogged about it: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/

I am with Paul Mason in respect of his second sentence; in respect of the first, Rachel Reeves may pretend to clarity but in reality is talking nonsense. You cannotcontrol the virus” unless by stopping it coming to your country or region at all. New Zealand. North Korea. Some other faraway, remote, isolated countries and areas. New Zealanders may think that all their lockdown and facemask nonsense has prevented mass infection, but 99% of it was the fact that inward flights were stopped, and then allowed only with the condition that the passengers were quarantined for weeks on arrival.

Also, Rachel Reeves talks about how the Government’s policies are causing huge economic damage. How much more will a further shutdown of the entire country cause?

Paul Mason was briefly thought of as worth listening to, when he was commenting on political and economic matters on Newsnight in the aftermath of the 2008 banking crash (scandal). Then it became clear that he also held views which were somewhere around anarcho-syndicalism. Crazed post-Marxist communitarianism.

Now he has fallen off the edge of his flat Earth: “In the New Statesman magazine in mid-2018, Mason argued the case for state suppression of “fascists”, saying that he favoured a policy of using “the full panoply of security measures to deter and monitor those he described as “racists” and added: “For clarity, unlike many on the left, that means I am in favour of state suppression…” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Mason_(journalist)#Politics].

At least one of Mason’s grandparents was Jewish. He is presently writing a book called How To Stop Fascism, which will apparently be published by Penguin. I think that I can guess what that will be like: a pastiche of cartoon-view 20thC history and selected highlights of the past 20 years, combined with a no-doubt convoluted argument which, however, will easily be reducible to the formula “I want to imprison or shoot those with whose views I, Paul Mason, in my self-perceived wisdom, disagree; those whom I and my friends decide to label “fascists”.”

Mason’s formula is not new. Stalin, Trotsky, and the Jewish thugs and gangsters of the 1930s and 1940s would have recognized it. Castro, too. State repression of dissidents.

Brexit could have worked. I favoured it. However, Brexit has been very badly mishandled by stupid and lazy “democratic” politicians like cocaine-snorting drunk Michael Gove; the same goes for Boris-idiot, and in fact for dozens of other Conservative Party drones since 2016. In fact, they are right to say that the EU will collapse; they are wrong to imagine that the UK, as it now is, will not.

Historically, not a few persons holding power, and who are as inept, incompetent and arrogant as Gove, Boris-idiot etc, have ended up getting shot once their misrule has led to societal collapse and then revolution. I would not rule it out here either.

I blogged about such matters nearly two years ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/

Ironic, though. The first Twitter account is run by Jew-Zionists, the very types that are always trying to censor online (freedom of) expression…

I’m not so sure about this one. Throwing money at “NHS heroes” is popular, of course, but the NHS overall is not working as hard at present as it did a year ago. That applies to many of its staff. Also, “the virus” has not hit doctors, nurses etc harder than many other occupations. Finally, non-nursing staff (including well-paid doctors) have just been given a pay rise of between 4% and 5%. For someone on, say, £150,000 a year, a further £7,000 gross, annually.

Comment surely unnecessary.

The UK mass media sewer

Sooner or later, there will have to be a real cultural purge, hitting the BBC, ITV, Sky, publishing, newspapers, the lot. Not just one on paper. A real one.

Is that true? I think that it may be. I blogged quite a while ago that it was obvious that “Boris” was finding it hard to fill the boots of a Prime Minister, just as he had found that he was unable to fulfil properly the role of Foreign Secretary.

David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne, both part-Jew. Theresa May, part-Jew. Boris Johnson, part-Jew. Does anyone see a thread here?…

Since 2010, the flawed but basically decent UK which then existed has been trashed by governments headed by trash.

As Hitler said “Jews have never created a civilization, but have destroyed many“.

Johnson. Wall. Squad. End.

(…and add Cameron-Levita, Osborne, Dunce Duncan Smith and many others to that list).

America’s “democracy”. A facade with nothing behind it. A sham.

Yet a few rounds would have solved the immediate problem.

Yes; I was under shadow ban on Twitter for some time. Still, my follower numbers got up to a modestly respectable 3,000 before I was actually expelled, despite the fact that I only followed about 50 accounts, mostly organizations.

Very good. The link: https://www.whiteroseandthorn.co.uk/

This, or similar, will be at least a major part of the way forward. I have blogged about social-national communities many times.

Yes, there is a kind of “woke” groupthink on many matters. The facemask nonsense is one of them.

It is the horrible, typically “woke” hypocrisy of the “lockdown” and facemask zealots that makes them so rotten. They know, really, that vast numbers are suffering and dying precisely because of the shutdowns, lockdowns, facemask nonsense etc, but they want to pose as “caring sharing” people who “clap for the NHS” etc…

I bet that the very same people are those often seen tweeting “refugees welcome” and “bring your families!” (translation: “bring your fanatics and criminals and rapists and useless millstones round our necks”), while themselves living, most of them, in pleasant leafy suburbs, or in the countryside, far from most of the problems caused by mass immigration of backward peoples into Europe…

Italy has announced plans for ending its lockdown after the coronavirus-ravaged country today recorded its lowest daily death toll for more than two weeks.  

Rome recorded another 525 deaths, taking its total to 15,887 – the highest of any country in the world – however, this marked its lowest daily increase since the 427 registered on March 19.

Furthermore, the number of people in intensive care (3,977), fell by 17 since Friday, and the number of cases rose to 128,948 from yesterday’s 124,632, a lower increase than the day before.

It comes amid growing signs that Spain’s strict coronavirus lockdown may be working, as the country records its lowest death toll for a third consecutive day.” [Daily Mail]

Keir Starmer and the Labour Party

His surname is English, rather than Scottish, it seems:
https://www.houseofnames.com/starmer-family-crest

Keir is now a Scottish first name, Keir Hardie having been, of course, the main founder of the Labour Party:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keir_Hardie

but “Keir” was the surname of Hardie’s mother, which he kept as part of his surname, only later using it as a first name.

Keir Starmer’s parents named him after Keir Hardie:
Keir Rodney Starmer was born in Southwark, London, on 2 September 1962[5][6] and grew up in the small town of Oxted in Surrey.[7][8][9] He was one of five children of Josephine (née Baker), a nurse, and Rodney Starmer, a toolmaker.[9][10] His mother had Still’s disease.[11][12] His parents were both firm Labour Party supporters, and named him after the first Labour Party MP, Keir Hardie.” [Wikipedia]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keir_Starmer

Note:
Personal life
Starmer married Victoria Alexander, a solicitor, in 2007. The couple’s son and a daughter are being brought up in the Jewish faith of their mother.[12][61]
[Wikipedia]

There you have it: Starmer’s wife is Jewish, and his children are therefore half-Jewish (according to ordinary genetics), and simply “Jewish” according to Jewish religious practice, as well as being brought up as culturally Jewish.

So far, Starmer has appointed members of Labour Friends of Israel to Shadow Cabinet: Rachel Reeves and Lisa Nandy. Emily Thornberry is to stay in Shadow Cabinet.

I think that we can write off the Labour Party now.

Ghetto life in Israel

The Israeli state is considering sealing off “ultra-Orthodox” areas, thus creating quasi-ghetto zones within the Jewish state. Who would have predicted that?!

JewQuarterVienna1913

The Guardian article also makes the point that the Orthodox Jewish areas in London may also have been major incubators for Coronavirus. The boroughs of Barnet and Harrow, as well as Brent, are in the top half-dozen Coronavirus “hotspots” not just in London but in the whole of the UK.

Coronavirus— the exit strategy

Or to put it another way, what exit strategy? It is one thing to say to people, “stay inside except for a few closely-defined outings for a few weeks“, and quite another to say “stay inside your homes for several months, and if you dare to come out even to spend an hour walking in a national park, or on the beach, or sunbathing harmlessly in a largely empty park, or driving on an empty motorway, the police will stop you, question you, fine you and may fine you as much as £1,000“…

How long is this “lockdown” going to be sustainable? I see that even the msm outlets are beginning to ask the question now.

If someone has a country estate, or even a sizeable ordinary detached suburban or smaller rural house, perhaps with gardens, a swimming pool, a tennis court, an orangerie, a vegetable garden, “staying home” is not so hard to do. For the majority of the population, stuck in small houses, flats etc, perhaps with children or bored teenagers, this “lockdown” is a house arrest which cannot continue indefinitely. At some point, before long, the Government is going to have to announce a relaxation and then an end, before people start to ignore the restrictions.

Good points by Lewis Goodall of BBC TV Newsnight (ex-Sky News):

Little Matt Hancock and others may threaten more severe restrictions, but without public consent, even the present restrictions cannot be enforced widely. The present conditions are holding because the public has been persuaded or stampeded into compliance. I think that we are just approaching 2 weeks of “lockdown”. Can the UK sustain 2 months? That would be five times as long.

The economic damage is already huge.

Tweets:

Anyone who believes that Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet is anything more than a nominal “Opposition” is very naive. In 2015, the Jewish-Zionist lobby lost control of one of the previously-controlled two main System parties. After nearly 5 years, that lobby now has regained control. The Jews as a group care only that the (sort-of) “anti-Zionist” Corbyn has been removed. Hardly any Jews have voted Labour for many years.

Quite. Unreasoning fear is all around. Shoppers at Waitrose stand about 10 feet apart before they are allowed to have a trolley and enter the store, but inside they shop sometimes only a couple of feet from one another!

Likewise, the usual type of Twitter virtue-signallers continue to tweet on silly hashtags demonizing (of all targets!) people doing completely harmless things, such as walking along largely-empty beaches, almost deserted national park moorlands and forest trails etc, driving or motorbiking on almost-empty roads and motorways to places (or simply around, just to get a change of view and some fresh air).

If I had to say what unites the majority of the “Twitterati”, it would be their love of conformity, their obedience to authority, and their love of the largely-failed “multikulti” society. I suppose that is why Twitter was mainly pro-EU…

Here is a typical example, from someone calling himself “@sychodefender”:

You see the mentality. Any dissent from the “aurhorized” version of the truth is to be suppressed, and anyone not going along with the official narrative is “murdering” those unfortunate enough to die from Coronavirus. Who then is “murdering” those who, by reason of the “lockdown” (house arrest of the British people), cannot access lifesaving operations or other medical help for many other life-threatening conditions which (unlike Coronavirus) can be treated? Coronavirus can only be managed, via ventilation, not “treated” or “cured”. Who is “murdering” those people? No-one? The Government? Conformist tweeters such as “@sychodefender”/Simon Burgess? The first thing being murdered is the truth; after that, the English language.

Interesting legal case…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8189913/Ex-MI6-spy-dirty-dossier-Donald-Trump-sued-three-Russian-oligarchs.html

It seems to me that the thing SIS/MI6 is best at is bolstering its own reputation (not by its own successful product or analysis, but via self-serving propaganda or public relations). That, and providing fairly well-paid careers for often rather mediocre members of the Oxbridge-educated middle classes.

Let’s think of a few of the less ancient SIS/MI6 failures:

  • the invasion of the Falklands; failure to warn HMG;
  • failure to warn HMG about the likely fall of the Shah of Iran;
  • failure to warn of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe…to name but three very large-scale events.

What about SIS/MI6 successes in the past 50 years? The Gordievsky defection, I suppose, but that is or was “spy game” or “spy wars” stuff, rather than large-scale success in forecasting. The same might be said of the “Viktor Suvorov” defection from the GRU or that of Oleg Lyalin (KGB). Those were, in essence, “walk-ins”, of course, though Gordievsky “walked in” having been cultivated for some time (in Copenhagen).

Of course, it can always be said that “the successes must be kept secret”. Perhaps, but I have little doubt that many failures are also kept secret (aka “covered up”).

At some point, SIS/MI6 must be reorganized to provide useful information to government, especially on the strategic level. That might mean using more open-source material as a percentage of the whole.

Naturally, anyone who —like me— is not a member or former member of such an organization is commenting somewhat in the dark, but it is surely clear that this is not a properly-functioning organization.

Now this…

Good grief!

The Army is so desperate to fill its ranks that it is signing up recruits with a reading age as young as five. Normally, its rules bar hiring anyone with a reading age below ‘entry level two’ – equivalent to that of a child aged seven to nine.” [Daily Mail]

Last year, the Army was roundly mocked for recruitment advertisements stating ‘Your country needs you’ to ‘snowflakes, phone zombies, binge gamers, selfie addicts, and me, me, millennials’. Now it appears that some potential recruits would not even have been able to under stand the adverts – even as warfare become increasingly computerised.” [Daily Mail]

How absolutely stupid! The Coronavirus is spread via water in air, so is far more likely to be spread via exercise than via sunbathing!

“...there are concerns that public confidence could be lost if those in power with gardens and ample living space tell those who live in crowded conditions they cannot go to the park or exercise outdoors.” [Daily Mail]

This is becoming very silly (which is why 90% of “Twitterati” support the “lockdown” in an extreme way…).

If the Government and police don’t stand down these restrictions pretty soon, there will be disobedience and perhaps actual disorder. At the very least, much of the public will “just say no”, or perhaps more likely “yes repeat no”, i.e, apparent compliance but followed by the opposite as soon as the police or other busybodies go away.

The rest of Europe is already starting to exit “lockdown”…

The British government is headed by a pack of idiots that have no real idea what they are doing. Look at little Matt Hancock! His only pre-political job was “making tea” (not quite, but he was very junior) for a year at the Bank of England. Now he is a Cabinet minister! It’s mad. The present government is mad or stupid or both.

Has it peaked in the UK too?

England, Scotland and Wales have declared 434 more deaths caused by the coronavirus today, taking the UK’s total to 5,368. 

England accounted for 403 of the fatalities while Scotland and Wales independently declared 31 more deaths in the past 24 hours.

The statistics are a ray of hope as the daily death count has fallen for the second day in a row and was today the lowest it has been since March 31, when it was 381.

Today’s number is a 30 per cent drop from the 621 fatalities recorded yesterday, and a 39 per cent fall from Saturday, which was the worst day so far with 708.” [Daily Mail]
