Diary Blog, 25 June 2020

Good grief. When I was about 8 years old, around 1964-65, my family would occasionally drive down from the Berkshire/South Oxfordshire border area where we lived to spend a day at Bournemouth (usually at nearby Boscombe). Maybe not on the most crowded days, but I do not recall anything like these crowds. Why now? Is it because more people have cars now? Population increase? I have no idea.

In fact, though I am against the ludicrous “lockdown”, to crowd onto a beach with thousands of others like that must be an excellent way to get infected by Coronavirus. Strange to think that only a few weeks ago, the toytown police were patrolling and bullying even lone sunbathers on deserted beaches to “move along”! Mad world.

Brixton

The blacks are revolting!

This is not surprising, firstly because it is the sort of “chimp-out”, to use the American phrase, that happens when there are large black populations; secondly because the blacks have been encouraged and emboldened by the craven police response to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense and faux-insurrection (including policemen literally bending the knee to the blacks, in sign of fealty or surrender); thirdly because Sadiq Khan is hopeless; fourthly, also significant, the heat and humidity of yesterday is the climate that acts as a catalyst for such disorder.

Britain has still to make the decision as to whether it wants to be an advanced, European-race, high-IQ, high-tech, environmentally-aware country, or a multikulti black-brown and mixed-race mess, a “Congo-North” if you like, with ever-declining standards, pay, “welfare”, environment and culture.

Churchill College, Cambridge

Cambridge condemns abuse against academics, after petition to fire Dr Gopal launched.” [Varsity]

Gopal shared examples of the racist and hateful attacks she has received to her university email since the petition was launched, including from an anonymous person who said she was “disgusting inside and out”, and, “[i]f you don’t like white people, pack up your sh*t and go home. Problem solved.”” [Varsity]

She is not in fact a “professor”: https://www.english.cam.ac.uk/people/Priyamvada.Gopal/

Gopal is supported by other disgusting blots on this country, living here and, so far, tolerated. Here are a few more of them:

These —and many like them— will not be required in the new Britain.

How long before it really “kicks off”?

The ludicrous UK “lockdown” is being eased, but only with absurd restrictions in place. Who will want to go to a pub when there are plastic screens everywhere? Who will want to fly (certainly for touristic purposes) when forced to wear facemasks, muzzles or whatever?

Already, we see the wave of redundancies rising. Royal Mail is to (in effect) sack 2,000 people, all in managerial or other senior roles. The knock-on effects from such decisions are many and affect many outside the ranks of those sacked.

We have a non-Government and a non-Opposition, a collapsing economy, and black or multikulti mobs rampaging in the cities. It is time for the British people to step up.

and see this:

This is sometimes referred to as “White Genocide”, sometimes as “The Great Replacement”.

More about Cambridge University and Churchill College

It now seems that Cambridge University has, since yesterday, elevated the anti-British, anti-European academic terrorist Priyamvada Gopal to the rank of professor. What a scandal. It’s a disgrace. We need a cultural purge in this country, starting with the msm but not sparing the universities.

I noticed decades ago that Cambridge University was a cesspit of treachery.

Here’s another swine who wants White Genocide:

[Priyamvada Gopal retweeted the above tweet…]

These “people” have declared war on us.

Rebecca Long-Bailey

Keir Starmer, a Jewish lobby doormat with a Jewish wife etc, has sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jun/25/keir-starmer-sacks-rebecca-long-bailey-from-shadow-cabinet

The chances are that he was just waiting for a chance to do that, if he could find a plausible reason. Well, now he has found a reason.

This news, combined on the same day, or within a day or so, with Starmer’s refusal to call for the resignation of corrupt little pissant Robert Jenrick (another one with a Jewish lawyer wife and half-Jewish children), surely shows what types are now pulling Starmer’s puppet-strings.

Not that I have much time for Rebecca Long-Bailey. She seems rather dim, for one thing, and could never be considered to be “prime ministerial material”. For example, she said that she “...would support workers in all strike actions and industrial disputes, “no questions asked”.[47].” [Wikipedia]. Well, that is just asinine.

Rebecca Long-Bailey has also said, in the recent past, that “she was unhappy with Labour’s response to allegations of antisemitism within the party during Corbyn’s leadership, commenting that “I don’t think we were dealing with complaints quickly enough”. She said that if she was Labour leader then she would follow the recommendations of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.[42][43][44]“[Wikipedia]

In other words, Rebecca Long-Bailey, while not as much of a doormat for Jewish Zionism as is Keir Starmer, is or was all the same willing to kow-tow a bit to “them”.

Some tweets seen

The above tweeter is evidently a decent but naive fellow who is seemingly unaware of the (((infestation)) in both Labour and the UK generally.

https://twitter.com/IanHarrold/status/1276181490175479808?s=20

Labour has been doing better in the opinion polls of late purely because of the incredible incompetence of the “Conservative” government. However, looking at its position structurally or strategically, it is even less connected with most British people now than it was when led by Corbyn.

I am talking about white British/English people, but I am not so sure that Labour is very strong now, or so strong, in the black/brown “communities”. The “ethnic” demographic(s) were Labour’s strongest suit. If they give up on Labour, all it will have left will be the public service people, the unemployed/disabled (in broad-brush terms) and the metro-London types that live in gentrified former slum areas. I am not so sure that even the Jews will drift back much to Labour, for all Starmer’s doormatting. They are anyway few in number, relatively.

More tweets

Not just a doormat, but proud to be a doormat…

Here (below) is an interesting tweet, though it is disappointing (even these days) to discover that the Editor of CityAM cannot spell “Damascus”…(and on a standard keyboard, “a” is far from “u”):

Jesus H. Christ! Why on Earth do people do it? They cannot lie down or even sit down in comfort. Yet there are other places along that coast in both directions where the beaches (albeit that some are pebble beaches) are not very crowded at all even on days such as this. I can only assume that people are just not willing to research alternatives, despite the Internet.

Silly, but it made me smile:

Tweets seen this evening

I prefer my profile of Jenrick: an entitled little pissant, who is a complete tool of the Jewish/Israel lobby, has several houses, a Jewish wife who is a lawyer, and children being brought up as Jewish. In other words, not unlike Keir Starmer.

Update, 28 June 2020

The petition to sack Priyamvada Gopal from Cambridge University, which already, within a couple of days, had tens of thousands of online signatures, has been pulled by the platform (change.org).

So now in the UK you cannot tweet, post on Facebook, petition, put up stickers (a man got 2 and a half years for that recently), march or demonstrate, or have a banner flown over an empty football stadium, unless you are in favour of multiracialism, multiculturalism, Jewish influence and power, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, or other “approved” (by the System) beliefs.

President Kennedy put it best:

Diary Blog, 16 February 2020

I start —very late— today, and with thanks to “Claudius”, an occasional commentator on the comment pages of my blog, who sent me the following short piece on Irish history; well worth reading:

https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2019/08/30/become-other-than-white-ireland-and-radical-jewish-activism/

In relation to the part of that article dealing with the Jewish-Zionist influence in contemporary Ireland,  it seems that the existence of even a few “embedded” Jew Zionists (embedded in the “Establishment” or local power structure) can ruin a country. Indeed, that may be the result of even one such “embedded” Jew, as with Barbara Lerner Spectre in Sweden: see below).

[note the typical disconnect between “smiling” and any reason to smile. As someone once put it, “the simulacrum of the human”. Like a faulty electrical connection].

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

If comments seen are correct, Barbara Lerner Spectre has now relocated back to Israel, as Sweden burns.

The ultimate aim of this sort of thing is contained within the sinister Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan: https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/ ;

Sometimes fiction is fact that has not yet happened: e.g. Jules Verne novels, or The Camp of the Saints etc…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Camp_of_the_Saints

I have written previously about the sad state of Sweden:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/18/the-swedish-sickness-contaminating-the-rest-of-europe-what-is-it/

Another aspect of all this (and which affects the advanced parts of the world generally) is the existence and influence of the unpleasant System puppet, Greta Thunberg:

“Weirdos and misfits”?…

A new No.10 “weirdo and misfit”, but, arguably, not entirely wrong in his views:

BBC

Saw this unthinking and almost kindergarten “analysis” of the BBC’s situation:

Where to start? Firstly, “Labour” and the “Conservatives” are not “two sides” politically in any meaningful sense. Two faces of one lying whole. The BBC is pushing the whole multikulti agenda to the max. It lies to the British people time and again, it pushes and promotes every kind of decadence, and that is before we even consider its overpayment of its supposed “stars”. Why is the former footballer Gary Lineker paid something like £2M a year to shoot the breeze about his sport? Why are newsreaders paid hundreds of thousands of pounds per year? And so on.

I am in favour of “public service broadcasting”, but most of the time the BBC is not it…

The Mayor of London cannot distinguish reality from semblance

There was a time when Sadiq Khan was spoken of as a possible leader of the Labour Party and even as a potential Prime Minister. That was then. Since then, he has failed to prevent multikulti London becoming a crime-ridden ant-heap split between masses of downtrodden people and the few who buy Georgian houses, fortify them, then excavate vast 10-storey dystopia-cellars below ground. In Xanadu, did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure-dome decree…

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadiq_Khan#Political_image_and_views

As always, credit where due: at least Sadiq Khan, by retaining his Tooting seat in 2010, prevented the evil Mark Clarke from becoming an MP. Clarke himself now has no prospect of ever becoming an MP and has been sacked at least twice for being a sex-pest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Clarke_(politician)

Rebecca Long-Bailey

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey on the Marr show:

Well, what can one say? Doormatting for the Jew lobby, trying to curry favour with the wealthy or influential Jews (the rest are not of interest to her or Labour, because even en bloc they represent only 300,000 votes and most of them vote Conservative anyway). She also seems not particularly intelligent. And why quote the “IHRA definition” of “antisemitism” when it has been “adopted” by only about 15 countries out of nearly 200? Is that more doormatting?

Rebecca Long-Bailey may or may not become Labour leader (it seems unlikely) but whether she does or not, she will never be Prime Minister. I mean, just look at her…

Oh, God…look at this! She’s just a lunatic, or at least an unthinking “me too-er”:

I had no great interest in Rebecca Long-Bailey previously and knew little about her, but I see now what a very poor candidate she is. She is a walking, purse-lipped collection of politically-correct soundbites. How can she even in her wildest dreams see herself as a Prime Minister?!

Listening to Twitter clips of Rebecca Long-Bailey and her supporter Angela Rayner (candidate for Deputy Leader) on the Marr show, I really think that Labour must be on the way out, despite the fact that it had very considerable support among younger voters (under the age of 25, especially) at the 2019 General Election.

How does Rebecca Long-Bailey consider that Israel as a state is not a “racist endeavour”? It was founded by Jews for Jews! Yes, they do employ some others, mainly the Palestinian Arabs whose ancestors they defeated in their ethnic-cleansing war of 1948. Does that change the nature of the state? The whole enterprise is a Jew ethnostate! That is one reason (as well as a place to dump the Jews that Hitler wanted out of the Reich, out of Europe) why the Reich did not oppose its — then only potential— founding.

Endeavour

Watched a new episode of Endeavour. Quite well-executed as always, but the “agenda”, as in other series such as Grantchester etc, becomes so very obvious that it is silly. Every second character is black, South Asian or gay. This in the Oxford of 1970! Even the tinker “gypsy” children who find one of the bodies near their caravans are playing football with a black boy; and the mother of a “racist” teenager who is stabbed later blames the “British Movement” and its Parliamentary candidate, so redeeming herself as a true multikulti convertee. All a bit too desperate…

Endeavour has also continued the Inspector Morse and Lewis tradition of a few subtle or not so subtle jests in each film. In this case, a Bangladeshi restaurant called The Jolly Rajah and an apartment building called Tiffin Court

Even leaving the above gripes aside, the plot this time was nowhere near as good as in most if not all previous episodes.

An early start…

 

Boris-idiot

I have been hostile to “Boris” for many years, since he was (underwhelmingly) MP for Henley. Others have now caught up; the public has not— yet. I think that it has to happen before too long, though. The part-Jew public entertainer cannot fill the boots of a prime minister. Speaking of boots, an article now compares Boris-idiot to Caligula:

https://www.politico.eu/article/uk-prime-minister-boris-johnson-brexit-the-new-caligula/

HS2

A Chinese enterprise “promises” to build HS2 in 5 years at relatively low cost (£100 BN instead of £120 BN or more? Original estimate was £62 BN…). At what environmental cost?

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/hs2-china-build-railway-latest-boris-johnson-a9337061.html

Ancient woodlands felled:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-51475549/hs2-cubbington-wood-group-to-continue-their-protest

What does Boris Johnson, Boris-idiot, care? A part-Jew, part-Turk, part God-knows-what, born in New York City, brought up mainly in the USA and Brussels, whose stepmother is a very wealthy Jewess. What does he care about Britain and the people of Britain? He is only interested in money, at root. He is not a legitimate Prime Minister, and anything is justified to remove him.

Ireland

People wanted to kick the government and Sinn Fein provided the shoe to do the kicking,” says Christy Parker, a journalist from the beautiful but de-industrialised town of Youghal in county Cork. He speaks of the “chasm” between the elite benefiting from Ireland’s impressive economic progress and the large part of the population that has been left behind.” [The Independent]

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/sinn-fein-ireland-election-victory-brexit-politics-elite-a9336496.html

That was my impression too, though I have not been to Ireland since the mid-1980s (and before that, the late 1970s), and a lot of water has flowed since then.

 

In fact, that is one reason why the UK should develop a real social-national party, because it just might come about that the shopworn System parties will flag at the very moment when the British people will be desperate for something, anything…

Returning to Ireland, where does it go from here? Sinn Fein, which fought only a proportion of the seats in contest, nonetheless won a plurality of the popular vote: Sinn Fein 24.5% (37 seats), Fianna Fail 22.2% (38 seats), Fine Gael 20.9% (35 seats).

The Irish Parliament, the Dail, has 160 seats including the (non-voting) Ceann Comhairle (Speaker). 80 seats are required to form a coalition government; alternatively to create a “confidence and supply” arrangement less than a coalition.

In other words, one of the first three parties will have to join with one of the others (or both of the others) and/or smaller parties. Sinn Fein thinks that it can get by via an extended coalition with a number of smaller parties. Alternatively, the two main System parties together would only be 7 or 8 votes (the last Speaker was from Fianna Fail) short of a majority.

So far, neither of the System parties has agreed even to talk to Sinn Fein: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51508380

Sinn Fein would have to bring on board almost all the small parties and most of the (19) Independents in order to rule.

 

Labour leadership

Emily Thornberry is out, thus leaving Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy as remaining contenders. At present, Keir Starmer looks like a shoo-in. I doubt that he would excite many voters, but it may be that in 2022 or 2024, after years of Boris-idiot as PM, that very dullness might even be a selling point…

Storm comment

Stop all farm subsidies. They are a major reason why farmers and landowners pay £10,000 an acre for agricultural (non-building) land. This system (despite some “stewardship” subsidies or grants) is anti-environment, overall, paying money merely for owning land, while the farmers carry on as free businessmen in most respects. Public money going to private pockets, deep pockets at that.

Wind power

Interesting tweet about wind power:

Adolf Hitler said that “the future of electricity generation lies in the winds and the waves” [see Hitler’s Table Talk]. All we have to do now is to reduce the aesthetic impact of wind farms and the impact they have on bird life.

Et vous?

Saw this.

I think that I score four points out of twenty. Five points if my return to the UK from Australia in 1969, aged 13, and aboard the old Oriana, is not labelled a “cruise”. I suppose not, though it had most of the same characteristics, so make that five points out of twenty.

Mike Stuchbery

Many will be familiar with the name of Mike Stuchbery, the “antifa” cheerleader who is said to have instigated a kind of “home invasion” at the house of Tommy Robinson’s wife (Stuchbery spins it differently) in 2019. Stuchbery then got a nasty shock when “Robinson” turned up at Stuchbery’s own house (both were located in the Luton area)

Stuchbery

There has been water under bridges since then. “Robinson” has done (more) time in prison, while Stuchbery fled with his “German” wife to Stuttgart, where he now lives.

I have blogged a couple of times about Stuchbery:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/  (the latter is updated as necessary).

I have mocked Stuchbery’s constant claims to be a hard worker holding down (as he ludicrously pretends) “three jobs”, when it is obvious that he is what his detractors claim, a kind of grifter who relies mainly on donations from supporters, State assistance, and also a working wife (as I apprehend).

Not that there is anything wrong with those three methods of subsistence, an sich. It does grate a little, though, when Stuchbery makes his claims of being a grafter rather than a grifter. He seems to have plenty of time to travel around and, on weekday morns, stroll into Stuttgart for the odd melange and, as it might be, some Schwarzwaldtorte or Sachertorte (actually, the latter is my own favourite…).

I happened to be looking for the first time at the Byline Times, the online “newspaper” headed by the writer Peter Jukes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Jukes]. This is one of Stuchbery’s “three jobs”, I believe. Well, last year (2019), he wrote, by my count, 19 fairly short pieces for Byline Times. So one article every 2-3 weeks. So far, in 2020, only one article. I cannot imagine that that pays much, if anything.

I believe that Stuchbery also takes tourists around Stuttgart and teaches some English as a foreign language.

Actually, Stuchbery reminds me of the conscientious objector, member of a religious cult, during WW2, who was asked how he intended to make his living if not in the armed forces. He replied, on the form provided, “God will provide. (wife working)“!

Stuchbery explained his reasons for fleeing to Germany in an article written on 2 September last year, my birthday in fact: https://bylinetimes.com/2019/09/02/goodbye-to-all-that/

An underwhelming read, frankly. Britain has declined hugely since the 1980s, let alone early 1970s. Stuchbery has not the personal experience (he only arrived from Australia in 2014, though apparently he was born here), or historian’s —or journalistic— skills, to make much sense of trends and events.

Stuchbery thinks that copying bits out of books or tourist pamphlets makes him a “historian”, just as he thinks that scribbling for platforms such as Byline Times makes him a “journalist”. It’s risible. Look at my blog about him to see a few howlers that he has made.

I have had to explain at intervals that being opposed to “antifa” inciters and enemies of free speech like Stuchbery does not mean that I am in any way a supporter of Tommy Robinson.

At present, I am waiting, with great interest, for Stuchbery’s supposed and proposed legal case against Tommy Robinson (for which a crazed woman called Roanna “@antifashwitch” has raised about £11,000 via GoFundMe). I think that, like the Jewish Messiah and the “cheque in the post”, the lawsuit is unlikely to ever come to pass…

The midnight hour approaches…

Diary Blog, 2 February 2020

Labour leadership contest

Emily Thornberry, who may or may not go through to the actual election for Labour leader, makes some points about absentee landlords “from China” or wherever.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/landlords-empty-homes-housing-crisis-labour-leadership-emily-thornberry-bristol-a9313051.html

She is in a slightly embarrassing position, bearing in mind the news, a few years ago, that she herself (with her husband, a High Court judge) owns no less than 8 buy to let properties! True, she is making a different point here, but she is in a rather awkward position all the same.

As for the three others already in the race, Lisa Nandy made a perhaps correct but rather underwhelming point about “left behind” towns in the North;

Rebecca Long-Bailey says that “quality homes” should be built, saying (truly enough) that “Housing is a basic human right and we are not providing our people with that basic human right at the moment”; [The Guardian]

Keir Starmer “said that more houses were required at “rents and rates that people can actually afford”. He said overcrowding in London was having a negative impact on children’s learning and labelled the current situation “disgraceful”. “Don’t see it as a housing issue, see it as a much bigger social justice issue because that’s what it is,” Sir Keir said.” [The Guardian].

The points made by Starmer and Rebecca Long-Bailey were true in themselves, but we know that the UK population has grown by somewhere between 10 million and 15 million in only 20 years. Most of the growth has been the result of immigration (including births to immigrants). 15 million! Even if you were (generously) to assume as many as 5 persons per household, that works out at three million households! Yet not one of the Labour Party leadership contenders has flagged mass immigration even as a issue (except binned loudmouth Jess Phillips, who is stupid enough to think that mass immigration to the UK is and has been a wonderful bonus for the British people!).

Mass immigration to the UK, and births to those immigrants, poses an existential threat to the UK, not because these non-Brits are terrorists (relatively few are) but because the integrity (not only racial or ethnic, but also cultural) of the UK is strained now. Seriously strained.

It has got to the point where the System (and also the “anti-fascist” idiots etc) try to enforce the point of view that anyone with a British passport is “British” (and even “English”, “Scottish”, “Welsh”), when real British people do not accept that fiction. An example would be the black-clad “ISIS brides”: on paper, “British”, but in reality certainly not. It has put us in the position where British people have lost almost all sense of their own identity.

In fact, it may be that that scrabbling around for “identity” is one reason why there has grown up in recent decades some kind of near-obsession with how England (in particular), and as a sporting nation, is doing in football, cricket, rugby etc. Olympics too (under UK banner). Is it a wish for identity, however shallow?

Marr

Just watching The Andrew Marr Show. Impressions:

  • Nigel Farage in a rather loud yellow silk tie quite like (maybe the same as) one I used to wear sometimes, years ago (I never wear —or have to wear— a collar and tie these days);
  • Farage attempting to talk up Brexit Party as a living entity. How is that possible, after he stabbed all his candidates and members in the back at the height of the 2019 General Election campaign?
  • Wuhan: what amazes me is how many UK, French, Australian, American persons have recently been in, or even been resident in, Wuhan. If I am honest, I have to admit ignorance as to Wuhan; I do not believe that I ever heard the name until the coronavirus struck; China does tend to amaze: 11 million people in Wuhan, yet it is merely the eleventh-largest Chinese city!
  • Leo Varadkar, the “Irish” PM, says that an alleged diktat from Downing Street, forbidding UK diplomats from sitting next to EU diplomats, is “petty”. I have to agree, but that is what the EU itself did when it disagreed with the election of so-called “far right” politicians in Austria and Portugal a few years ago…;
  • Sinn Fein apparently “second” in popularity in Eire (as I often call Ireland), where there will soon be a general election…Well, Marr said second, but the Irish press are saying that Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail are now level in support (24% each, with Fine Gael on 21%) https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/poll-puts-sinn-fein-level-with-fianna-fail-to-win-election-979234.html;
  • Dominic Raab (a half-Jew) talking about the proposed immigration points system. All it means is that supposedly “qualified” persons, with a UK job offer at a —low-ish—salary level of about £26,000 pa (e.g. Indians who can work a computer, or who bought a degree somewhere), will come, with their extended families. Those who enter, and their children, will start to breed in the UK…this is a disaster about to happen; it has ruined parts of Australia (another “points system” country), by the way;
  • John McDonnell playing (and describing himself as) the “elder statesman”. Ha ha! As I blogged after the election, when he was interviewed in his garden, he looked like nothing so much as a bemused pensioner, tipped out of his wheelchair and mugged;
  • Why does Marr not ask John McDonnell why he and Corbyn (and all but about 4 “Labour” MPs) signed up to the fake “International Definition of Antisemitism” (which has been adopted by only a dozen or so countries in the world)? McDonnell has behaved as a doormat for the Jewish lobby for years; he obviously thought that the lobby would help him to become Labour leader. Ha ha! Bye!…
  • McDonnell saying that all the Labour leadership candidates are “superb, fantastic…”. He’s a complete idiot! He even thinks that Dawn Butler might lead Labour!
  • Marr a little too polite to McDonnell. After Leo Varadkar was asked about Sinn Fein about to overtake Fianna Fail and possibly form a government in Dublin, Marr could have asked McDonnell about his previous support for not only Sinn Fein but the Provisional IRA itself. Or would that be too edgy? Yes, McDonnell was pro-IRA long ago, but I bet that if I were on Marr, I would be asked about things I said back in the 1980s or 1970s…;
  • Donald Tusk interviewed. He was born in 1957. He graduated in 1980. He came to prominence after 1990. What was he doing for the decade of the 1980s? His long Wikipedia entry says nothing about that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Tusk

The fake charity, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] is at last being properly investigated, it seems. It is not charitable in any sense. It is a political pressure group which supports a foreign state (Israel). It is completely political. Its main office-holders have repeatedly been caught trolling (usually using pseudonyms) and offline stalking those they consider as enemies, particularly several women. The latest drunken Jewish triumphalist rant by one Joe Glasman (brother of “lord” Maurice Glasman of “Blue Labour”), posted on Twitter but deleted, is merely one of its latest excesses:

HS2

No discussion of the disastrous HS2 nonsense on Marr. £120 BILLION and it could be more! This was another of David Cameron-Levita’s failed policies. Just bite the bullet, cancel it, sack its people, then redirect some of the money to giving both the North of England and the rest of England better rail services, new less environmentally-destructive lines (such as ultralight trains, narrow-gauge, robot trains, inter-suburban trams etc).

High-speed trains are useful in countries which are large (eg France) or very large (such as China) or very long, such as Japan (the same is true of Chile, Russia, Australia, though none of those have high-speed rail).

Japan is 1,900 miles long and the two main islands and others are joined by rail and road tunnels. Even the largest island, Honshu, on its own, is over 800 miles long, i.e. far longer than the UK, and with a number of very large industrial and commercial cities. Japan is developing an ultra high speed maglev line on which trains will run at over 300 mph:

HS2 is just not useful for the UK, even discounting the environmental damage and the huge cost.

Sinn Fein

I have in the past generally been opposed to Sinn Fein and its military wing (the IRA), but the Troubles were some time ago now. At least the IRA were white Northern Europeans with vestiges of decency, unlike the ISIS barbarians and other enemies of Western culture and life.

I see that Sinn Fein are the likely victors in the current Irish General Election. That being so, and in the spirit of diplomacy…

…and here’s one specially for John McDonnell!

The Jews I met at an oasis

A random tweet just reminded me of when I met a group of Jews in a desert oasis. It happened like this: I was in Egypt for several months in the winter of 1997-1998. I started off in charming Aswan, spent a week or two under canvas in a then-remote part of the Red Sea coast, and then a month or so in Alexandria (an experience recounted, in part, here: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/).

I left Alexandria to visit the remote oasis of Siwa, in the Western Desert not very far from Libya and South West of the Qattara Depression and only a mile or two from the first great dunes of the Great Sea of Sand:

275681-Siwa_Oasis_Egypt275695-The_desert oasis of Siwa

SiwaPanoramaA VIEW OF THE OLD AND NEW CITY OF SIWA IN EGYPT'S WESTERN DESERT.

I lived for a month, maybe longer, in a kind of small concrete chalet in the garden of the very small hotel I used. The hotel garden was sand but planted with closely-situated date palms. I discovered that dry date palm fronds, fallen from the trees, burn easily. Thus I inadvertently started a “tradition” of having a fire around which people gathered and talked in the cool of the evening.

Most visitors to the oasis would arrive on the one bus (a luxury Mercedes coach) in early evening, stay only one or two nights, then return to Alexandria (an 8-hour journey via Marsa Matruh on the coast). By the time I left, I had spent at least a month there and was the longest-resident foreigner save for a Finnish person who did Tai Chi on the flat roof of the hotel (well, maybe you have to be a little unusual to stay long at Siwa!) and an Anglican nun who wanted to set up a Christian centre there (not a very good idea even if the authorities approved it, which was almost inconceivable). Turned out that she knew a man who had tried (unsuccessfully) to teach me Physics when I was at school in the early 1970s. Small world.

I met a number of mostly young people there. I myself was an arguably youthful 41. Apart from the Finn and the English nun, I recall quite a few others who stayed at the oasis for longer than average. Some were more eccentric than others.

There was an odd young man from somewhere near Lancaster. When in the UK, he lived in a caravan on a red squirrel conservancy and had inherited a small legacy (£12,000, I think) from his grandmother. He had lived for eight years on that, in India. He said that India was both cheaper and dirtier than Egypt. I found both statements hard to believe.

Another oddity, also English, was someone about 28, whom I at first took to be some sort of evangelical Christian, but who in fact was a militant atheist. Very militant. He had bicycled across vast expanses (including the Kazakh steppe), using a specially-built bicycle which had water storage inside its frame. He had cycled from Alexandria and was planning to cycle from Siwa to the next oasis, Bahariya, a journey of some 250 miles to the East, on a desert road used only by occasional Egyptian Army patrols, perhaps once weekly. Not a good place to get a flat or run out of water. I wonder whether he made it.

One young lady, a very attractive French girl from Rennes, the capital of Brittany, was rather interested in me, but had a boyfriend with her, a rather pleasant fellow from Montpelier, so our animated conversations did not lead anywhere, or any further…

We temporary “local expats” would eat such as molokhiya, a rather slimy but oddly tasty soup made mainly from green vegetables (jute leaves); more often we might have falafel, and maybe drink helba, a kind of yellow-green herbal tea made from fenugreek (Siwa was dry in both senses).

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

https://www.inside-egypt.com/health-in-a-cup.html

So what about those Jews? They were tourists from Israel, travelling in a group. Students. There seemed to be about 8 of them. None of them seemed to be overtly attached. The girls were quiet, pleasant, modest; the boys slightly less quiet. Only one was extremely unpleasant, a transplanted New York Jew aged about 25, with beard and carrying at all times a thick and obviously unread paperback about “the holocaust”. I cannot recall the exact title, something about the SS and “holocaust”. This particular Jew was studying at some university at Jerusalem and within minutes had marked me as a probable enemy! My copy of Alan Clark’s Barbarossa probably triggered his interest.

The others in that Israeli group, in discussion with other tourists (including my French “girlfriend” who never became a girlfriend), seemed to be reasonable in that they were not looking for war with the Arab world, but of course the unspoken elephant in the room was the historical basis: the migration of millions of Jews to British Mandate Palestine and later Israel, which displaced the previous occupants.

Still, in that milieu, by the “camp-fire”, one could briefly believe in an Arab-Israeli concordat. Only the presence, at times, of the American Jew Zionist fanatic, disturbed that pacific fantasy. He personified the Zionist fanatics who never quite get around to moving permanently from New York, Los Angeles or London to “Eretz Israel”, yet they are the ones who, as much or more than the “native” Israelis, push the hardline Zionist agenda. Look at the recent film featuring the former heads of MOSSAD, Shin Beth etc. They seem, in principle, less warlike than both the American (etc) “diasporic” Jew fanatics and Israel’s own political leaders.

[I am going to post that reminiscence separately as well]

A quiet end to the day

 

Diary Blog, 17 January 2020

Something those under the age of, say, 25 should be shown, especially if they are followers of Greta Nut (Greta Thunberg)…

The international “System” will do anything, say anything, suppress anything so long as the reality is hidden: that the world simply has too many people and particularly too many non-European people.

Tweet about Belgium and also about Ukraine

From a couple of months ago, but just seen:

A bit like the UK, where there is an an enormously disproportionate Jewish presence in politics, law, business leadership, television, radio, Press, publishing, yet the masses are told —by that same (((controlled and/or influenced))) msm— about the allegedly huge “antisemitism” in the UK! Even the Cabinet is now basically a pack not only of Jews and part-Jews but of non-Jews who are completely in the pocket of the Israel lobby.

Britain today, British “Conservatism” today…

Take a look at this personification of much of what is wrong in the UK:

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

His degree was in Zoology and he then obtained a doctorate focussing on the mating habits of the common pheasant. His next step was to get his first job, aged 26, working as a journalist (for 8 years). He then became a director of a bank, Northern Rock, which, in 2008, was the first British bank to fail by reason of a bank run in 150 years (it was nationalized and then sold off in pieces to protect investors).

I suppose that a casual reader of such a CV might say, “what a clever man, to be a zoologist and journalist and then become director of a bank!” Well, not really, when you learn that his father had been a Northern Rock board member for 30 years and eventually Chairman, leaving just before Matt Ridley joined…

Under the chairmanship of Matt Ridley, Northern Rock had a business plan which involved borrowing heavily in the UK and international money markets, extending mortgages to customers based on this funding, and then re-selling these mortgages on international capital markets, a process known as securitisation. In August 2007, when the global demand from investors for securitised mortgages was falling away, the lack of money raised by this meant that Northern Rock became unable to repay loans from the money market. This problem had been anticipated by the financial markets, which drew greater attention to it. On 14 September 2007, the bank sought and received a liquidity support facility from the Bank of England, to replace funds it was unable to raise from the money market. This led to panic among individual depositors, who feared that their savings might not be available should Northern Rock go into receivership. The result was a bank run – the UK’s first in 150 years – where depositors lined up outside the bank to withdraw all of their savings as quickly as possible, particularly since everyone else was doing the same.” [Wikipedia].

In 2007, I was still a practising barrister. One day, I had just finished a contractual dispute involving boatbuilding at Southampton. I exited Southampton County Court to see something unusual: across the street, a Northern Rock branch, with a line of people outside. Right next door to Northern Rock, a branch (maybe a charity shop; I just saw the sign) of The Samaritans! I wish I had had a camera! I probably could have sold the photo to the national Press!

Away from reminiscence. So here we have Matt Ridley, trained in zoology, aged 36 and who has become a bank director (Chairman from 2002) by reason solely of family connection. To add to his other attributes, he is also a “libertarian” and an atheist. Oh dear…

Matt Ridley inherited a large estate in the North of England. It has been in his family’s ownership since the 17th Century (1698):

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

http://www.blagdonestate.co.uk/

http://www.blagdonestate.co.uk/about-blagdon/family-history

Matt Ridley is now causing a storm on Twitter because of his view that the past decade was the best ever.

If only everyone could inherit an estate and a fortune, become director of a bank (taking deposits from the public, at that) despite having no qualifications or experience whatever, run that bank into the ground, cost the country incredible amounts of money, yet face no personal penalty or sanction! If only everyone could be like that, the UK would be so much happier.

Having said that, I have been reading some tweets and other material about Matt Ridley. When it comes to scientific questions, he is interesting and may well be right in certain areas (e.g. re “Nature and Nurture”), but, like so many scientists (not to mention actors and others) becomes effectively an idiot as soon as he steps out of his magic circle into the realms of politics and, it seems, socio-economic policy.

Labour leadership

More black marks for Jess Phillips: she is pro-abortion, and is apparently endorsed by a few msm idiots such as James Corden (he tweeted in favour of her a year ago). She has given an interview to the joke “newspaper”, the Huffington Post:

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/jess-phillips-labour-leadership_uk_5e20786ec5b673621f71c30c

She would “immediately” expel “anti-Semites”, apparently. For me, “anti-Semitism” is not a crime anyway (it is not a crime in England either, though many seem to have been brainwashed into thinking that it is). Seems that Jess Phillips believes in rights for Jews but not for “anti-Semitic” British people.

She would, it seems clear, actually expel Jeremy Corbyn from Labour! Oh, and she wants to bring back into Labour not only the disloyal Jewesses Luciana Berger and Louise Ellman, but also Fathead Chuka (Umunna)!

Monty Don’s American Gardens

I like gardens, though not gardening! I very much like Monty Don’s odysseys across the history and geography of gardens. His Italian Gardens series was excellent. This latest series today included the Middleton Plantation in South Carolina, near to Charleston, where I once had colleagues. We had a small lunch and business meeting at that estate one weekend. Only about 6 or 7 people. I recall that I decided to go local, so ordered catfish and collard greens; you can’t get much more “Southern” than that!

Tempus fugit. Doesn’t seem like 18 years ago…

If music be the food of love, play on…

Labour leadership poll

I thought that it might be closer than that. Well, we shall see. Not that I care, so long as Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy have no chance. I suppose that the Labour membership is thinking that a System figurehead such as ex-DPP Keir Starmer would not frighten the horses electorally. True, but he would also be a pretty dull choice. I am not sure how much Starmer really wants positive change, whereas Rebecca Long-Bailey does, not that my view of her is particularly kind either.

News from the “broken society”

I suspect that the judge, in the case reported below, had some sympathy for the defendant. So do I. There is far too much anti-social behaviour around, and the police are usually not very useful. I think that the lady in question was quite right, in the circumstances.

News from Labour

The newspapers in a flurry because Rebecca Long-Bailey seems to be in the lead, ahead of ex-DPP Keir Starmer. As already blogged, I have little time for any of the candidates, but the two I most want binned and humiliated are Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy. Overall, Rebecca Long-Bailey is probably the best from a policy point of view at least, but in a terribly poor field.

Voter migration 2017-2019

That is an interesting graphic. From it can be seen Labour’s haemorrhage of support quite clearly.

The Conservatives stood firm, gaining few new voters but still more than they lost; more Brexit Leavers migrating Lab to Con than Brexit Remainers migrating Con to LibDem.

The 4-point upswing in the LibDem popular vote is seen to be entirely Remainer dissidents from both Lab and Con, together with some 2017-non-voting Remainers.

While Labour did lose former (2017) voters, i.e. Leave supporters, to both Conservative Party and Brexit Party, and almost as many Remain supporters to the LibDems, almost as many former Labour voters as all of those defectors simply did not vote at all in 2019. What is especially interesting is that those former Labour voters who did not vote at all in 2019 were split about 50-50 between Remain and Leave.

What that means, to me, is that a very great number of people who used to vote Labour found it unsuitable in 2019 not because it was pro or anti the EU, but for other reasons. We are talking about somewhere in the region of a million people who voted Labour in 2017 but who did not vote at all in 2019. About 2.7 million fewer people voted Labour in 2019 as compared to 2017. Almost half of of those did not vote at all in 2019. So at least a million, maybe nearly 1,250,000.

What do these dynamics mean for the short or medium term? One problem is that we do not know all of the facts. Some former Labour voters defected to the Con Party or Brexit Party because those voters supported Brexit, but others obviously could not support Con Party or Brexit Party for other reasons. They at least could perhaps be called “social national” voters without a home. 500,000-600,000 people.

Brexit, even if probably in a messed-up, disorganized way, is going ahead. Remain is a dead duck politically. Brexit will not be a factor in the next general election, except in residual ways. That means that, inter alia, the LibDems are toast.

About a third of the new 2019 LibDem voters were Remainers who were previously Con, Lab or non-voting. Now that Brexit is set to leave the political agenda, at least as an In/Out question, those voters will ebb away. At the same time, the concentrations of LibDem support in a small number of constituencies are diffusing, but the LibDems have no real national narrative to tell, while the paucity of MPs (11 at present) means that the pool of potential leaders is a mere puddle. Finally, the proposed boundary changes and reduction of MP numbers from 650 to 600 will kill off at least half a dozen LibDem seats anyway. Result— misery and probable annihilation.

I admit that I have been predicting LibDem annihilation for 9+ years, but in my defence I can only plead that I underestimated the stupidity of the electorate or some of it. I also underestimated the effect of the UK’s effectively rigged political system. Where else but to the LibDems could the voters go if unwilling to vote Con or Lab? Only to UKIP or Brexit Party. Controlled opposition. I do think, now, that the fateful hour is approaching for LibDemmery. Their vague “centrism” and “let’s all be nice in society” messaging rang very hollow after the terrible things done by the Con Coalition, in which now-binned Jo Swinson was a junior minister.

The Con Coalition killed the LibDems, or rather mortally-wounded them. The LibDems are slowly dying from the effects of 2010-2015.

The frontrunner for next LibDem leader is Ed Davey, who was a Cabinet minister in the Con Coalition. Not really likely to revive the LibDems, though a more substantial figure than Jo Swinson (whose recent elevation to the Lords, after having been chucked out by the voters of her Commons constituency, has probably irritated voters generally even more). Looking at the other LibDem MPs, one sees the problem in finding even a halfway-suitable leader!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_Democrats_(UK)#Current_MPs

Another point to remember is that the turnout in 2019 was about 67%. Nearly 33% of eligible voters (in round figures, about 16 million people) did not vote. There are yet others who are eligible but who are not registered. Could there be a political position that would attract the allegiance of that 16M-strong or maybe 20M-strong bloc?

Interesting to see that the Greens, though basically a joke-party, managed to attract Brexit-unaligned voters who had not voted in 2017. Seems to me that, in part, that was a protest vote against the lack of choice.

Labour is hopeless at present, with no decent leader in sight and policies which are partly-popular but also partly deeply unpopular (eg mass immigration laxity). Its traditional base is ebbing away and its new foundations in the black and South Asian “communities” are not so solid.

Labour seems not to want to turn to the truths that everyone else, pretty much, sees: such as that mass immigration has destroyed decent pay, benefits, and has crowded schools, NHS, prisons etc. Labour wants to say that “unions are the answer” when they were not even the answer 30 years ago!

What about the Conservatives? Their new seats are not theirs by tradition or custom. The roots are very shallow. They are a government by default, who won the recent General Election by default. Labour might have had a chance were it not for the Jew-dominated hate barrage put up over 4 years and intensified during the campaign. However, that was only part of the story. The other part was Labour as it actually is. Diane Abbott as proposed Home Secretary? A West Indian woman who scarcely knows what day it is, who cannot put the right shoe on the right foot, who cannot add up…it just goes on! Oh, and who has made plain her hatred for the British people again and again.

Labour just did not look like a credible government. Even compared to Boris-idiot’s “Conservatives”. It did not hit hard enough against the Israel lobby that was behind the anti-Labour msm barrage either. Since the campaign and election, one of the sinister “Campaign Against Antisemitism” bastards, one Joe Glasman, even posted a triumphalist clip (he looked drugged or drunken) on Twitter (it is deleted now, I read) in which he admitted that the Jews beat Labour through msm links, “spies and intel” and a relentless focus on negative attacks on Corbyn especially. Indeed, he revelled in “his” victory.

The Conservative victory was won without having had to oppose a credible opponent (made still less credible by the Jewish-lobby publicity campaign and by its own flaws). Another factor was the weaponization of Brexit. 52% wanted Brexit in 2016 and even if the mismanagement etc had reduced that to perhaps 45% or 50% by December 2019, that 45%-50% was still more than the Conservative voting intention of earlier in the year, that stood in the 35%-40% range. It was that Brexit factor that augmented the Conservative lead.

2022/2024? Completely open. If a social national party exists by then, it might gain huge support. True, the political system is rigged via FPTP voting, carefully-drawn constituency boundaries etc, not to mention the msm, but if such a party has elections as a stratagem, not an end, such a party might still triumph eventually via other roads to glory…

An enemy of the truly European future

The Coudenhove-Kalergi idea again. How anyone could believe that a white Northern European population is less creative and has fewer evolutionary possibilities than, say, the populations of Nigeria, Congo, Brazil etc is hard to understand except in terms of multikulti brainwashing. Judge the trees by their fruits.

It would also be good if scientists who tweet could use “too” and not “to” when they mean “too”…

Ah, mystery solved. Our “scientist” is a former lifeguard and waiter, who later worked in IT and is now a lecturer at a couple of former polytechnics:

Harry and the Royal Mulatta

A tweet or two.

That last tweet hits the nail on the head. “He who would be first must be the servant of all”. The Queen understands that, at least in principle, but the younger royals feel only the entitlement, not the obligation. Some were always like that, of course. Princess Margaret. Prince Andrew. Edward Fag-End (as the Anglo-Saxons might have named him). Now we have this pair of msm “celebrities”.

An older sort of monarchy would have loaded their camels with gold (if they were lucky) and then banished them forever to a far kingdom. I suppose that, in a sense, that is what was done with Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson after 1936.

This marriage has tarnished the whole concept of British Royalty in a way never done before, certainly not so openly.

Update, 8 February 2021

Looking at the above blog post a year on in time, I think that it has held up well. Even the fact that the idea to reduce MP numbers from 650 to 600 in time for the next General Election has been binned changes little. The LibDems are still a dead duck, in my view.

Flybe

I was sorry to hear that Flybe may shut down, though it seems that the government is trying to save it without supplying it with direct subsidy. I used to use Flybe sometimes, about 15 years ago when I was professionally based in Exeter (and living on the Cornwall-Devon border). It was useful for long cross-country journeys, such as Exeter-Norwich (no longer offered), Exeter-Newcastle etc. I also used their flights between Brest (Finistere) and the UK occasionally. I like small airports anyway. I tried the Newquay-Gatwick service once, which was also good, but in my case I was heading into London, so that meant a jam-packed train (Gatwick Express) as well, which took the gloss off the experience. Anyway, good luck Flybe…

Harry Dunn/Anne Sacoolas

I saw this:

https://news.sky.com/story/pm-chances-of-harry-dunns-alleged-killer-facing-extradition-very-low-11908260

So once again the “Special Relationship” proves to be worthless. It’s a one-way street. The UK has often extradited its own citizens to the USA because the USA has demanded that, yet when it comes to the UK wanting a US citizen, no way, Jose! Let’s get out of that one-way and exploitative treaty.

Robert Jenrick

I always thought that Robert Jenrick was a horrible little pissant, even when he was first trying to get elected in 2014. My instinct is rarely wrong. Once installed, in 2019, as Secretary of State for Housing, Local Government and Communities, he “demanded” that local authorities adopt the so-called “international definition” of “anti-Semitism” (in fact adopted by only about 30 out of nearly 200 states).

In July 2019, he said “I want tackling antisemitism and ensuring that the Jewish community feels protected and respected to be one of my priorities as secretary of state”… In September 2019, he said “I will use my position as Secretary of State to write to all universities and local authorities to insist that they adopt the IHRA definition at the earliest opportunity…and use it when considering matters such as disciplinary procedures. Failure to act in this regard is unacceptable.” [Wikipedia].

Jenrick is a member of the Parliamentary Conservative Friends of Israel [CFI] group.

Jenrick has said his connection to the Jewish community “forms a very important and integral part of my life.“” [Wikipedia]

I was until recently unaware that Jenrick’s wife is a Jewish corporate lawyer who was born in Israel. Their children are being brought up as Jews. Jenrick and his wife even celebrate Jewish holidays! In short, he is a complete doormat for “the lobby”.

Labour and the Jewish lobby

“They” are still pushing for charges to be made in relation to half a dozen now-expelled Labour Party members arrested in early/mid-2019. LBC’s (((political editor))) tweets:

There is a genuine atmosphere of the Stalinist purges about this, though being arrested and bailed in the UK is obviously not the same, in absolute terms, as arrested and taken to the Lubyanka or the Butyrka in 1930s Moscow. All the same, just look at that tweet (and the others in the same thread):

“Woman in her 70s arrested on March 21. Again, Section 19 Public Order Act, following warrant executed in Wandsworth, south-west London”. A woman “in her 70s“! Arrested for allegedly saying this or that about Jews!

The fact is that where this lobby exists in sufficient numbers, non-Jews have and can have no freedom. Look at the Alison Chabloz case. There is more to come out about that now, but she was persecuted and then prosecuted (initially privately, by the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, a malicious little cabal which has wormed its way into various police and political areas).

What did Alison Chabloz do? Sang some humorous songs, and if the Jews or others say that her songs are not funny (though I disagree), then what? Haul her before The Court of Unfunny Songs?

The freedoms that we used to take for granted (until the advent of Tony Blair but made even less free under David Cameron-Levita and Theresa May) are eroding fast. Repressive and badly-drafted laws such as Communications Act 2002, s.127 allow well-organized and (((funded))) lobby groups such as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” to manipulate tame police and sometimes CPS into interrogating (and even arresting, charging and prosecuting) anyone who criticizes Jewish behaviour or the farrago of (mostly) nonsense that is the “holocaust” narrative.

Labour leadership contest

Well, there it is. All five candidates have agreed that Labour must henceforth be under the thumb (or the heel) of the organized Jew-Zionist lobby. We can now bid goodbye to Labour except as (((controlled))) opposition to the (((occupied))) “Conservative” Party.

The best thing would be for Labour to be reduced to a useless powerless rump, a niche party for the blacks, browns, public service staff etc. A new party can emerge for those who agree with Jack London (Jack London, not Tom London): “I am a socialist, but a white man first.”

Corbyn at least represented something understandable. These others? Useless and craven.

Alison Chabloz

After her appearance in court on her appeal last Friday, which was adjourned until 25 June 2020, persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz must feel that the end is now in sight. Depending on what Crown disclosure is made, it is possible that her appeal will not be opposed. Later? Her persecutors may ultimately find themselves in trouble.

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]

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!

Diary Blog, 18 December 2019

Welcome to my diary blog, which will probably be published on a near-daily basis from today. It will contain political and social comment, mainly, but may also include music, art etc.

Anything requiring more length or structure will be put into a separate blog article.

I saw a tweet (see below), which shows how many of those on Twitter are in a relatively small echo-chamber. The tweet contains an “exit poll” taken on the recent Polling Day, and asks for which party the voter voted. The result (of over 68,000 responses): 64% Labour, 20% Conservative, LibDem 7%, 10% Other. So Labour was overvalued at about twice its real national vote-share, Conservative Party undervalued at less than half what it actually received on that day, the LibDems also undervalued at 7% instead of the real figure of 11.6%. As to “Other, 10%”, well Brexit Party got 2% in the actual election, Greens got about 3%, then there were SNP, Plaid, the various Irish parties; so “Other” may have been accurate overall, something which evidently cannot be said of the main Twitter poll.

The lady further below the tweet understands what an “echo-chamber” Twitter is:

This made me smile:

“@mojoss55/Maureen Fitzsimmons” used to follow my Twitter account. “Three degrees of separation”?

“and now for something completely different…”

Labour Party leadership

Rebecca Long-Bailey [Lab, Salford and Eccles] has been put forward as a candidate for Labour leader. She is in the Corbyn camp.

I do not know much about her at present, but what I do like is that the Jews on Twitter etc all seem to hate her. A good sign! Also, I like the fact that she is not one of the many “silver spoon” MPs (both Labour and Conservative): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_Long-Bailey#Early_life_and_career

I shall do a separate blog on the Labour leadership contest once all candidates are known.

Labour leadership (again)

Just took a look at Oddschecker and it appears that Rebecca Long-Bailey is favourite in the betting market. All the Jew-Zionist claque on Twitter is attacking her. Looking good…(from my perspective). I of course am not a Labour supporter, but their rank and file are at least generally better than the selfish, moneygrubbing “Conservative” ones, with their parasitic buy-to-let investments, inbuilt family life-advantages etc.

So the Jews are attacking Rebecca Long-Bailey, the usual msm drones are attacking her, the System talking-heads too. She must be one of the best candidates…

Of course, these msm talking heads (let alone the Jew element) are scarcely objective. “They” want to retake control of Labour, so that it can be “controlled opposition” again, and if it comes to it, a (((controlled))) government as well.

In fact, all this talk about “would Labour be electable under a socialist Labour leader?” (as distinct from a more “social-democratic”, or even “Con-lite”, one) tends to neglect the fact that:

  • The Labour vote collapsed from 40% to just over 32% at the General Election, true, but that was only a partial collapse. Three-quarters and more of the Labour vote held, despite the years of System and especially Jew-Zionist vilification of Labour and especially Corbyn, which campaign became almost hysterical near Polling Day. Jews, we were told, were sitting on their suitcases, waiting either to make a last despairing bid to get to Tel Aviv or awaiting the knock at the door and the train to the East. Yeah, right… Contrast that with the mostly very soft msm treatment given to Boris-idiot over 20 years. (and I should have thought that, were any of the “Jews are scared of Corbyn” stuff true, it would have encouraged more people to vote Labour!).
  • Statistical work done since the General Election shows that, had only 18-24 year old voters voted, the Conservative Party would not have a single MP anywhere in the UK. That does not necessarily mean that they will vote Labour next time, or that the next wave of 18-24s will, but it does make me think that the coming mainstream of voters will want a more radical agenda than the System preferees such as Keir Starmer or Lisa Nandy are willing to offer.
  • The next general election will not only have all those present 18-24s or most of them voting Labour (probably) but also the next wave of 18-24s (and they might be more inclined to use their vote if Labour has a radical leader).
  • The next general election will have far fewer Conservative voters, as older voters (and most Conservative voters are old) fall victim to “old age, sickness and death” (Buddha’s description of the Primal Karma of humanity).

The recent General Election win for the Conservatives is unlikely to be repeated for the above reasons. This may be partly why they are tightening up on voter registration etc. The boundaries of constituencies are being changed too.

Looking at the above, the smart move for Labour, counter-intuitively, might indeed be to have a (younger and) very radical leader. Corbynism without Corbyn. After all, someone such as Rebecca Long-Bailey has no baggage from the 1970s, 1980s and generally; and the Jews can hardly play the “we are all so scared” card again and with a woman aged only 40-something (she is 40 at present).

By the way, Salford and Eccles was previously represented by disgraced expenses cheat fraudster, Blair-Brown acolyte and Labour Friends of Israel drone, Hazel Blears:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hazel_Blears#Expenses_scandal

I do not know whether Yvette Cooper will try to become Labour leader. She would be disastrous: pro-Jew, pro-Israel, with a history of formulating and getting passed poorly-drafted legislation, often very repressive legislation too.

Yvette Cooper is a virtue-signalling “refugees welcome” hypocrite and idiot who, with her equally bad-news husband, Ed Balls, pretended that they would be offering their home(s) to migrant invaders, while urging others to do the same (which they never did, of course; cf. Lily Allen). Perhaps she did not understand that most British people do not have several houses. She and Ed Balls made mucho money out of the British taxpayers when they were both MPs. They now have several properties, none occupied by “refugees”.

The family, which includes their three kids, live in a £650,000 terrace house in Hackney, East London. They also own a £900,000 North London house and a property worth £230,000 in Castleford, West Yorkshire. (The Sun & Daily Mail)https://www.spearswms.com/ed-balls-net-worth/

To cap it all, Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper may have been lucky to avoid prosecution for fraud:

Wars and rumours of wars

Large-scale wars do not start without warning. There are always rumblings from the telluric depths first, sometimes for years.

It would be madness for the UK to fight Russia. Russia may not be the old Soviet Union, but it can still put up to 4 million men (and women) in the field, if need be. That’s including reserve forces. 900,000+ are active; many of those are front-line forces.

Britain’s forces total just over 200,000, of which only a small fraction (perhaps 40,000) are both active (non-reserve) and front-line.

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

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

Similar proportions in respect of naval, air, strategic rocket forces etc.

The fact is that, if the UK gets involved in a war with Russia, the UK will be devastated. Glasgow (which is near the Faslane base), London, the major ports etc. There would not be much left. That may be true of some Russian target areas too, but the old Soviet Union was 92x the (geographic) size of the UK, and even the present Russian Federation is about 70x the size.

Before you cut, measure seven times…

Jesu Christi!

Just when you thought that Diane Abbott could not do more to destroy Labour with most present UK voters, the stupid monkey comes up with this!

I am convinced that the mere existence of Diane Abbott, at least as Shadow Home Secretary, lost the Labour Party a million votes at the recent General Election.
