Radio 4 Today Programme

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.

Late tweets

This is more or less what has happened in the past 13 months in respect of the “virus” panic in the UK.

Hard to believe that tweeter “@TimothyNerozzi” is serious but, as Cecil King once said, no-one ever lost money by underestimating the good sense of the British people (it might have been “the intelligence of”…); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Harmsworth_King.

We have a rotten Government and an equally ridiculous official Opposition, but the idea that “the House of Windsor” could rule autocratically is beyond satire. Who exactly? The almost 100-year old Queen and Consort? Charles and Camilla? Surely not Andrew or Edward? The tame thick princelings, William and Harry? 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/

Other tweets

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

[above: Orthodox Jews in early 20thC Vienna]

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!

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]

Corbyn

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7818831/Jeremy-Corbyn-tweets-happy-Hanukhah-message-sparking-fierce-response-Jewish-editor.html

Corbyn is still trying to say to the Jews, “hey, man! Respectttt!”. What an idiot. “They” will hate you whatever you say. Anyway, why wish them “Happy Hanukah”?

Many misguided Christians think that the Jewish religious festival of “Hanukah” is somehow analogous to Christmas, the profound Christian religious festival of birth and peace. Wrong. “Hanukah” is, like most other Jewish religious festivals, an ethno-nationalist celebration of resistance and victory (of Jewish triumphalism if you like), in this case the rebellion of the Jews against their Greco-Syrian overlords in the 2nd Century B.C. (or “B.C.E.”):

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanukkah#Story

What was the Jewish response to Corbyn’s olive branch? “Jeremy Corbyn‘s annual ‘happy Hannukkah’ message to Jews in Britain and around the world has prompted a furious reaction from, amongst others, the editor of a Jewish newspaper, who told the Labour leader: ‘go f*** yourself!’“… [Daily Mail]

Need one say more? Corbyn has seen and experienced the way in which the Jewish lobby has conspired against him and the Labour Party for over four years. Why give them the satisfaction of throwing a peaceful greeting back in your face? Just cold-shoulder them.

As with the Diane Abbott situation, Corbyn seems incapable of learning from experience…

Meanwhile, Labour leadership contender Rebecca Long-Bailey is attacked by the Daily Mail (which seems to be afraid of her…):

  • “Labour frontrunner Rebecca Long-Bailey has said her political outlook was shaped by watching her father worry about losing his job at Salford Docks
  • But the Shadow Business Secretary, born in September 1979, would only have been two when the docks closed in 1982.” [Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7818065/Momentum-founder-advising-Labour-leadership-hopeful-Rebecca-Long-Bailey.html

Well, if Jews can be terribly upset about the death or disappearance of remote relatives that they never even met, and indeed who died or disappeared long before they, the descendants, were even born, why should Rebecca Long-Bailey not…? (well, you get the idea…).

Was the recent General Election fixed?

That is a good point. I can only think that most postal votes are held by older people, most older people vote Conservative these days, so…Maybe.

Looks like there is something rotten in the state of Boris…

Blyth Valley

I am reading “mainstream” analyses saying, as my blog did in the days since the General Election, that the Conservatives only have those Northern and Midland seats “on loan”, though I do not use that term. I said that the Cons have “shallow roots” there.

The msm are still trying to say that huge numbers of voters turned to the Conservatives; but we know that the Conservative vote increased by a mere 1.2% nationally over 2017. The real story was and is the collapse of trust in Labour and support for Labour. It is probably true that the Con vote increased in those Northern and Midland areas by more than the national average, and did not increase, or it fell, in some other areas.

In the most striking result, perhaps, Blyth Valley went Con after 69 years (the seat was established in 1950 and won by Lab, by Alfred Robens who later, as Lord Robens, was chief of the National Coal Board).

The 2019 Con vote, however, only increased by 5.8% over 2017. The real story is earlier: the Con vote increased from 13.3% in 1997 to 15.9% in 2001, was 13.9% in 2005, and 16.6% in 2010; not much difference. However, the 21.7% the Cons got in 2015 jumped to 36.9% in 2017, then 42.7% in 2019.

What happened? What happened was that national sentiment increased and “proletarian” old-style “socialist” sentiment took second place to that.

Only once in the 69 years did the Conservatives come 2nd where there was a third candidate at Blyth Valley, and that was in 1960 when an Independent stood. The Conservative Party has otherwise always come 3rd or 4th.

In 2010, there was an identifiable “national” vote at Blyth Valley: BNP 4.4%, UKIP 4.3%, English Democrats 0.8%. So 9.5% in toto (Conservatives 13.3%, LibDems 27.2%, Lab 44.5%).

In 2015, only UKIP represented a kind of “national” vote, and received 22.3%, beating the Conservatives (21.7%). Lab won with 46.3%. You can see that Labour only beat the combined UKIP/Con vote by a couple of points.

In 2017, no UKIP or other “national” party, and Labour’s vote surged to 55.9%, easily beating the Conservatives’ 36.9%, but in 2019, Brexit Party stood, getting 8.3%, and the Labour vote collapsed to 40.9%, allowing the Conservatives to win on 42.7%.

For me, the dynamics are clear. The Brexit vote only went partly to Brexit Party (which also was probably perceived as not fully “national”. The Conservatives benefited, though —as said above— by only 5-6 points over 2017. Turnout was 3 points down from 2017. The Brexit Party votes were probably from former Labour voters. Labour only lost to the Cons at Blyth Valley by 1.8 points. Those 8.3% Brexit Party votes were crucial. Had Brexit Party not been there, the vote would have been closer by far; Lab might have won.

The old “proletarian” certainties have disappeared at Blyth Valley, along with the coal mines. Only traces remain. That has cut the ties binding the voters to Labour.

Leaving the Brexit issue aside, as presumably will be the case next time, it can be seen that Blyth Valley will either revert to Labour or may go to a new party, so long as it is both “national” and “social”…

That may be the case in most of the new “Conservative” seats.

NHS

What was that that Boris-idiot was saying about “no plans to sell off NHS”?

Dan Hodges, faux-proletarian, who lives in his mother’s house in Blackheath (she being the once-famous actress, Glenda Jackson), describes Corbyn supporters as “parasites”…So speaks the scribbler who scribbles for the Mail on Sunday (formerly for the Sunday Telegraph) and of whom Wikipedia says: “Hodges is the son of the actress and former Labour MP Glenda Jackson and her then husband Roy Hodges.[4] He worked as a parliamentary researcher for his mother between 1992 and 1997, describing it as ‘straight-forward nepotism’.” “His former colleague Mehdi Hasan described his…role with The Daily Telegraph as one where he “now performs the role of the right’s useful idiot”. “In 2014, Hodges co-founded the Migration Matters Trust, a pro-immigration pressure group chaired by Barbara RocheLord Dholakia and Nadhim Zahawi and run by Atul Hatwal.”

I know which group of (((parasites))) I should prefer to see driven out of Labour!

If Corbyn Does Not Fight Back, “They” Will Bury Him

Those who read my blog regularly will know that I am far from being an unalloyed fan of Jeremy Corbyn. I think him wooden and not a genuine political thinker, someone who is stuck somewhere between the crypto-Communism of the Michael Foot era and the ideological madness of the contemporary self-described “Left” (I myself never use terms such as “Right”, “Left” as useful descriptors), the crazies who have rushed in to fill the vacuum left by the collapse of old-style socialism in and after 1989.

You get the idea.

Corbyn is, in short, a bit of a joke. I have blogged about him, and what I call Corbyn-Labour, in the recent past. He and his party are also in favour of, or not opposed to, mass immigration and the “multikulti” society.

I have little time for Corbyn as a political leader, as such. His poor intellectual level and Lego-brick level of understanding of society and international politics and geopolitics give little confidence.

On the other hand, there is or was something not entirely unpleasantly familiar about Corbyn. As I have blogged and (before I was expelled from Twitter) tweeted about him, he is a recognizable 20th century English type: the bearded “socialist” from the provinces (in Corbyn’s case, transplanted aged about 22 to London), wearing his Lenin cap, reading the Morning Star, Tribune and the Guardian, protesting against 1980s South African apartheid or Israeli West Bank settlements etc, supporting Castro-Cuba, “revolutionary” 1980s Nicaragua, “socialist” Venezuela etc.

Corbyn’s type, with variations, could be observed from around the time of the First World War, and up to the present day, in its “natural surroundings”: the Durham Miners’ Gala, the Tolpuddle Martyrs annual event, the conferences of the Labour Party and TUC, local constituency Labour parties, CND marches, steam rallies, heritage railways, allotments. So much of a “type” is Corbyn that he could easily be imagined included in a series of “English types” in the Edwardian cartoon tradition, complete with outsize head and a little descriptive caption.

Corbyn’s elevation to the Labour leadership was, as I have also blogged, little short of miraculous. Since 2015, Corbyn has also managed to fight off repeated Jew-Zionist attempts to unseat him. What do “they” want? They want Corbyn gone so that Jew-Zionists, lobbyists and placemen can once again control Labour. “They” already control the misnamed “Conservative” Party and have done since at least the end of the Thatcher era; until Corbyn’s accession, “they” controlled Labour too. They want that control back.

We have seen recently how some of Corbyn’s enemies in the Commons started to capitulate and leave the Parliamentary Labour Party, committing political hara-kiri

At the same time, however, Corbyn-Labour has made the mistake of trying to conciliate, making concessions to the Jew-Zionist element. It did that before, when it surrendered to “them” over the so-called “international” “definition” of “antisemitism” (in fact, adopted by fewer than 40 states out of about 200). Now Corbyn-Labour has given in on Chris Williamson MP and has suspended him.

Chris Williamson MP occasionally (maybe two or three times only) retweeted my tweets when I still had a Twitter account. However, when the Jew-Zionists noticed that fact, they criticized him for it, after which he stopped retweeting me and may have (I forget) blocked my account. Weak. It showed weakness in relation to the Jews. I have not forgotten that.

Now Corbyn, John McDonnell and some of their closest allies (as well as swathes of “useful idiots”) in Labour labour under the same cognitive dissonance problem: Corbyn and many of his supporters see what the Jewish-Zionist lobby is trying to do, want to fight against it, but at the same time tie their own hands behind their collective back by saying that they oppose “antisemitism” and are only against Israeli depredations and behaviour rather than being in any way hostile to Jew-Zionist lobby activity in the UK (or France etc).

Corbyn and most of Labour also go along with the largely-debunked “holocaust” narrative as well. It all just plays into the hands of the Zionist lobby, which controls or near-controls many Labour MPs. Yes, some have left (Luciana Berger, Joan Ryan, Angela Smith, Ian Austin, Chuka Fathead) and their political careers are finished. However, there are many like them still in place and reporting back: Stella Creasy is just one example. Mary Creagh, Rachel Reeves and Liz Kendall also come to mind, inter alia, as do the outright Jewish Zionists such as Margaret Hodge.

Since Chris Williamson was suspended, the whole Jewish “claque” on Twitter and in the Press (in fact, in the msm generally) has gone mad again about Corbyn, “anti-Semitism” in Labour etc. It’s odd: we are told constantly that there is no “Jewish lobby”, and that individual Jews tweet or scribble purely as individuals, yet when something like this crops up, they all go the same way instantly, like a shoal of fish.

Corbyn-Labour, for all its flaws, is the only game in town right now for striking against the enemies of our British and European future. It can pave the way for social-nationalism down the road.

This is a crisis for Corbyn and his allies. They must either fight back against the encroaching, whining, pleading, manipulating and angrily-demanding Zionist lobby, or be “cribbed, cabined and confined”, imprisoned in a Zionist-constructed box made out of “antisemitism” allegations, “holocaust” fakery and a raft of trickster-drafted “definitions”, “regulations” and inhibition of free speech. Just say no!

Update, 3 March 2019

Here we see the Jewish anti-Corbyn “claque-storm” in its “tweetstorm” mode, exemplified by this tweet, in which a Jewish woman wants the Labour Party to either disenfranchise its Sheffield Hallam branch (by putting it into “special measures”, i.e. ruling it from London), or to remove (or remove the rights of) the 40 members who voted for a statement (only 1 person voted against). You see the problem: the 40 English people count for less than the one Jewish or pro-Jewish one…If Labour did that across the country, it would be left without active members, the footsoldiers that win elections.

Another one approves the tweet of the first:

Update, 8 November 2019

A good typical example of how, if you give “them” an inch, (((they))) take a mile: the Jew-Zionist lobby gets what it wants re. Chris Williamson, but then whines or blusters about how it is too little too late. Their next demand will soon be uttered…

All Europe needs to awaken to the menace.

Update, 17 February 2020

When I wrote the above article, I thought that 30 or 35 states had “adopted” the “IHRA” definition of “antisemitism”. In fact, and as I now know, the true figure is only about 15, out of 200 states.
