Diary Blog, 17 December 2021, including analysis of the North Shropshire by-election result

North Shropshire by-election result

None of the other 9 candidates exceeded 1%. UKIP and Reclaim managed 1%; of the remaining 7, only the Monster Raving Loony scored as high as 0.3%.

The start of today’s blog post is written not long after the declaration at North Shropshire, which came around 0415 hrs.

The hour or so of TV news broadcast I have just seen was notable for the superiority of the Sky News coverage over that of the BBC (which I saw briefly before turning over). The Sky presenters were urbane, humorous, and effective, whereas the BBC presenter was a beardless youth who interviewed some BBC talking head who himself seemed odd, oddly alert (and fast-talking, though saying little of interest) at nearly four o’clock in the morning.

As to the result itself, this is “seismic” (as I predicted it would be if the result turned out to be a LibDem win, which I also, though tentatively, predicted); seismic not only for the Conservative Party but for Labour as well.

“Boris” and his pack of clowns are having to learn again the lesson of the French Revolution: you cannot say “let them eat cake” while you guzzle foie gras.

The Conservative Party is making the same mistake in England that the Labour Party made in Scotland, that of saying “where will they [the previously-loyal voters] go?…where can they go?” Labour thought that most Scottish voters would pretty much have to stick with Labour, because they had no alternative. Well, we know how that worked out. It worked for a long time, many decades in fact, but in the end those voters got sick of being taken for granted, and at things not improving for them. Result— Scottish Labour now has 1 MP out of 59 Scottish MPs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#House_of_Commons.

It is always dangerous to assume that people have no alternative. The Conservative Party has thought that, in respect of southern and/or rural English constituencies, for many years. There is no credible social-national party in England, though. The LibDems have always been the “dustbin” alternative. UKIP nearly broke through but was defeated by the FPTP semi-rigged electoral system, and the same was true a decade ago of the BNP (who also had the embedded Jew-Zionist element in the msm working against them).

People in North Shropshire did not vote for the LibDem candidate, as such, but against the “Conservative” one. Big difference.

CCHQ will no doubt refer to the relatively low turnout (46.3%, as against 67.9% in 2019) but part of that low turnout (I think much of that) can be attributed to formerly Conservative voters abstaining, unwilling to vote for the Conservative Party but also refusing to vote LibDem or Labour.

This by-election could go down in history, though it is unlikely to signal the start of (another) LibDem “revival”. Having said that, there are many constituencies where few would vote Labour but many might at least consider a LibDem. Add to that tactical voting by people who would really prefer a Labour MP, and it might add up to something significant.

The Liberal Party scored 31.6% (second place) in 1983; the LibDems’ best result was 25.3% in 1992. The 2021 by-election candidate, who scored only 10% a mere 2 years ago in 2019) has now received 47.2% of votes cast! Voting against (the clown’s candidate), not for the LibDem as such.

So what about the Conservative Party candidate? 31.6%. Well below even the 40.2% of 1997. This was a shout of anger against stupid “Boris” and his pack of clowns. The actual candidate was, in my view, poor: not fully English, and another “Conservative” lawyer (barrister), who was at one time an Army doctor. I am probably biased, but having met a few, I never trust a doctor who becomes a barrister (or a politician, thinking of David Owen, Hastings Banda, Papa Doc Duvalier, “Che” Guevara, Radovan Karadzic etc).

Having said all that, this was not a Neil Shastri-Hurst disaster but a “Boris” and general Conservative Party disaster.

Now, to Labour. Since North Shropshire was re-dedicated in 1983, and until the by-election, Labour has failed to come in second only four times, and only once (2010) since 1992.

It is all very well to talk about tactical voting, or Labour supporters “lending their votes” to the LibDem in order to beat the Con candidate. Yes; no argument on that, but is that the whole story? The 9.7% scored in the by-election was the lowest Labour vote ever in North Shropshire. Even in 1983, at the height of Thatcherism, and when Labour suffered its crushing national defeat under Michael Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_Kingdom_general_election], it still scored 14.7% (third place) in North Shropshire.

The conclusion must be that, while many formerly Labour votes went tactically (or otherwise) to the LibDem, many Labour voters just voted with their feet, if such be the bon mot, and stayed home. Labour scored 22.1% in 2019, and 31.1% in 2017 (both under Corbyn) in the constituency.

If this by-election result is bad for Boris-idiot, it is arguably at least as great a blow for Labour’s Jewish-lobby leadership under Keir Starmer. The problem is not just the “Israel first” aspect of Labour’s present leadership, but also the way in which the supposed “Opposition” keeps propping up “Boris” over various matters, such as the Online Harms Bill and, of more immediate political importance, the Covid/Omicron “panicdemic” “rules” and “laws”.

No-one really can have expected Labour to win the by-election, but to fall below 10% is a straw in the wind that (in my view) is significant.

The other parties that stood? Well, the Greens are perennial 5% (or below) candidates, except in Brighton Pavilion, so nothing of interest there. As for the new Farage pop-up, “Reform UK”, it only got a 3.7% vote. I think that people mostly see through Farage now, either as “controlled opposition” or simply as a moneygrasping “slithey tove” who (like “Boris”) just cannot be trusted.

The various small-c “conservative” “nationalist” parties, i.e. UKIP, Reform UK, Reclaim Party, Heritage, and Freedom Alliance, together scored only around 6%, far less than even my low expectations (I had thought 10%, and maybe, as protest, as much as 20%).

A final thought. Brexit is dead as an issue, politically. It has been very badly mishandled (with “Boris” in nominal charge, how could it not have been?), but we are out and we are staying out.

Only 4 hours?! Talk about sisu! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisu.

It is amazing what even one determined person can do.

One person can achieve plenty, in principle; a group can achieve so much more, if congruent. Look at how Adolf Hitler was only the 7th actual member (there were other supporters) of the DAP which became the NSDAP, and how he managed to lead those few to go from seven men in a cellar to the pinnacle of supreme power in Germany, despite frenzied and violent Jewish and other opposition. It took him 14 years, but he made it.

I think that (as someone unattached to any System party) I can be considered objective. I agree with Williamson inasmuch as the North Shropshire demonstrates (as I have blogged in the past) that Labour’s problem lies not in its leader(s) but in Labour itself. The fact is (as blogged previously) that Labour is now irrelevant, and if it were not for the UK’s FPTP voting system, would by now have all but disappeared.

Look at North Shropshire. In the general elections from 1997, through 2001, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2017, 2019, and now the 2021 by-election, Labour scored 36%, 35.2%, 25.9%, 18.1%, 19.9%, 31.1%, 22.1%, and now 9.7%.

The elections Labour have fought in North Shropshire since 1997 show an uneven pattern, but more of a decline than a rise. Since and including 2010, only once better than 22.1%, and that was 31.1% in 2017, the first general election Labour fought under Corbyn.

The present Government and the present Labour Opposition are symbiotically chained together, and their policies are in practice very similar.

Starmer is a puppet, or monkey-on-a-stick.

Luke Akehurst is a leading (though apparently non-Jew) pro-Zionist who will now do what he can to defend the “Israel first” “Labour” front bench, and Starmer most of all. Dan Hodges is, of course, correct in saying the very same as I have done (earlier in today’s blog).

Israel’s “monkey-on-a-stick” Sajid Javid (well, one of them…) lauds the ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” committee, with its 2 years of “millions will die” propaganda and perennially-wrong forecasting. What’s really behind it all? NWO/ZOG and the planned biosecurity police state, the Great Reset etc.

Look at how inflation is rising in the UK. Over 5%, which is twice the rate it was only a couple of years ago. That is what happens when you waste money in huge amounts (as with the “Test and Trace” nonsense), or “give money away” in huge amounts (as with the “furlough” programme and the rest). The currency cannot be diluted for long without real-world effects.

Also, look at how the msm are conditioning the public to accept a far more rapid rise in the age at which people can expect to receive a State pension.

Stealth “taxation” by another name.

The same applies to the “holocaust” narrative…

Is there not one German who can do what is necessary?

He’s an idiot. People in the future will wonder how a clown like that ever had the possibility of becoming Prime Minister, even a prime minister of a country that seems to be in terminal socio-economic and socio-political decline.

What is extraordinary about that interview is that the Clown seems to be obsessed by “Covid” and especially “Omicron”.

The Clown makes the right noises about how what the public are interested in is government doing things for them, but does not seem to accept that his government has failed precisely in that!

The cross-Channel migration-invasion continues, the facemask nonsense interferes with tens of millions of people daily (and creates massive pollution), the roads are unmended, the railways unimproved, the social care sector is being stretched and near-ruined (and certainly not “fixed” as promised), the NHS is scarcely operating except as a “panicdemic” service…the list just goes on.

The Clown’s only hope is to keep the fear propaganda going re. “Covid”, despite the fact that only about one in a thousand UK people has actually died “with” it (not of it) (and as far as actual English/British —“white”— people are concerned, it is not even one in a thousand. Maybe one in fifteen hundred. Serious but not existential. The real figures may be even less sensational.

Yes, that really came out for a moment or two. The Clown is a rather sinister clown, or would be, had he autocratic power.

This is when an old-style heavyweight political bruiser like Andrew Neil can come into his own, but the Clown has usually refused to be tackled by him. Pity. As for Sam Coates, one wonders whether he would have been quite so forthright before it became obvious that the Clown is on the way out. Perhaps, perhaps not.

[the Clown at his ancestral Wailing Wall in Jerusalem; be careful what you wish for! I do not know whether the Black Hat is an Israeli guide or whether perhaps a distant member of Johnson’s own family]

People are sometimes seen writing in newspapers that Johnson wants to leave, to start penning rubbish newspaper columns again (and getting £250,000 a year for it, like he did before, when, inter alia, the Barclay Brothers were paying via the Daily Telegraph), and writing the sort of memoirs that attract million-pound advances and royalties. I think not. Johnson is a moneygrubber, true, but his primary motivation is to hold power, though not because he wants to do anything with it (and in any case he has no real ideas, and no real capabilities). He wants to hold power just for the sake of it, and to be centre of (favourable) attention.

I do not blame Johnson alone. I blame the msm for puffing this useless barrel of lies and self-promotion as “Prime Minister in waiting” for 20 years. I suppose that his part-Jew origins (and pro-Israel attitude) helped him there.

I also blame the elderly Conservative Party members who elected him as leader of that party. I blame also the MPs who initially nominated and voted for him. Finally, I blame the ingrained political stupidity of the British, especially English, voters, who allowed themselves to be conned by a really not very plausible con-man.

In “the old days”, there was a severe disconnect between what the Soviet mass media pumped out and the reality experienced by most of the 290 million Soviet citizens. I never thought that it would happen here, but look at the BBC, Sky, ITN now!

According to UK msm, we are in the grip of a huge pandemic, which can only be ameliorated by wearing facemask muzzles, being “vaccinated” by experimental “vaccines” and almost weekly (soon) “boosters”, and by shutting down much of the country.

We are also told that either there is no mass immigration problem, or that the invasion is something that we should welcome, and that the invaders will “enrich” us and benefit us.

We are also told that there is a huge “terror” threat, mostly from “the far right”, meaning social-nationalists (white people, often of school age)…

The reality is of course quite different. At some point, the msm drones will have to be held accountable for their lies and their evil retailing of NWO/ZOG propaganda.

The LibDems have been washed-up since they “enabled” the misnamed “Conservative” Party, under part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne, to impose wrongheaded austerity on the poorer two-thirds of the British people.

As for Reform UK, a pathetic “controlled opposition” vehicle, but a straw which may be clutched at by many in the absence of a real social-national party; the lineal successor to Brexit Party and UKIP.

Green Party upswing is another “grasp at straws” sign of voter desperation or frustration.

System politicians and msm talking heads (and the medical establishment) are still pushing the “it’s an existential threat to humanity” narrative, and that is all you will hear and see on the BBC, Sky, ITN etc. They have painted themselves into a corner with their panic, lies, and obfuscations.

We are Chinese, if you please! We are Chinese if you don’t please!...”

The mask zealots are truly insane and/or brainwashed. I had to argue, briefly, with a cheeky Ch… I mean Chinese… student in Waitrose in mid-2020. Told the interfering little alien to get lost.

No…

(((They))) truly are “the simulacrum of the human“…

Telling…The people do not want either main System party “leader” as Prime Minister. The people really want social-nationalism, but they themselves do not even know it, because the repression on free speech, and the lies of the ZOG/NWO msm, have them completely confused.

On that modelling, Labour would need support from both the SNP and the LibDems to form even a working minority government; the Conservative Party would in theory be able to govern with SNP support. However, the price of that would be, at the least, another Scottish Independence referendum.

Writing as advocatus diabolus, I suppose that the Conservative Party could buy the SNP by offering actual Independence without a referendum, but that might cause a political explosion north of the border, where about half of the Scottish voters are opposed to, or at least not in favour of, “independence” (independence from the UK/England, but not necesssarily from the international finance system, NWO/ZOG, NATO etc…).

Still, continuing in the cynical vein, and as I have blogged before, if Scotland were “independent” (from the UK), that would pretty much kill off Labour as a party of (“rump UK” or England/Wales) government. Once you take out the 48 SNP MPs and the one Labour MP from the Commons, as well as the 4 LibDems and 6 Conservatives, it becomes clear that Labour would never be able to form even a minority government, unless there were some kind of “peaceful revolution” in England. On the above modelling, Con 289, Lab 264, LibDem 7. (plus other parties).

The Chase Celebrity Special

Saw an old (not sure how old) “celebrity” version of The Chase quiz show. Featured Jewish-Zionist zealot Rachel Riley, who seemed to be pretty ignorant, though not much worse than the others. She even got a very simple maths question wrong (actually not wrong, because she failed to answer). Ghastly former MP, Edwina Currie, was the only one to be knocked out before the end. Surprisingly, though, the remaining three won £66,000 for charity, so that was nice, anyway.

Those who watch TV quiz shows will know that the “celebrity” shows are invariably cringeworthy, and lead one to speculate why hugely well-paid celebrity faces are often so hugely ignorant. I have seen few such “celebrities” acquit themselves well. One of the few who did was studiedly foppish interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Llewelyn-Bowen]. I think that that was also on The Chase.

Keir Starmer

Heard part of an interview with Keir Starmer, conducted by Nick Robinson. Starmer’s first point, even before it was explored further by Robinson, was how he had done everything he could to stop “anti-Semitism” in Labour (I think that his pleasant phrase was “tear out“…).

Seems that Starmer’s only real interest is in bringing aid and comfort to the Jews, despite the fact that they are numerically few (250,000-300,000), and so relatively insignificant in electoral terms.

Starmer admitted that, at home, his family does celebrate Jewish customary holidays. Sadly, Nick Robinson was too polite to ask whether Starmer, on such occasions, wears the little skullcap (“yarmulka“) which I believe (rightly or not) is de rigueur.

Nick Robinson is himself at least half-Jewish: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Robinson_(journalist).

On radio (the interview was also shown on TV), Robinson’s intro mentioned the problem Starmer has with seeming credible to the public were he to appear, as Prime Minister, on the step of 10, Downing Street. I am scarcely favourable to Starmer but, surely, after Boris-idiot, almost anyone would be credible, or at least not seem worse?

I may listen later.

This is now descending into total madness (again). A “variant” of a virus that kills about 1 in every 1,000 in the UK (and 1 out of 4,000 in the world), and this stupid yet evil Cabinet of clowns is apparently going to mandate the facemask nonsense again! We are pretty much at war now, not with “Covid” but with this evil Con regime, its equally evil fake “Labour” supposed opposition, and with a transnational conspiracy with several (to use Biblical language) heads and/or horns.

So the police shut down mild heckling of “antifa”-type “useful idiots”? Reminds me of the Trafalgar Square disgrace which continued for years in the 1980s, with amplified yelling 24/7 outside the South African Embassy, while the police, on political orders, allowed it and in fact facilitated it.

System conspiracy.

After a 2019 General Election, What?

I just read a typically unsatisfying yet not completely uninteresting article in the New Statesman [below].

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2019/07/boris-johnson-all-roads-likely-lead-general-election

The conclusion of that article is that Boris Johnson will be forced to a general election before very long. Unlike msm talking heads, we have no need to say “whoever is the next Prime Minister”: the system is broken, the 100,000 elderly people actually given a vote love “Boris”, and so we, the other 65 million, are having imposed upon us the least honest, least competent, least loyal, least decent, least worthy, least genuinely British Prime Minister in living memory, perhaps ever.

The crunch is coming, but Boris Johnson has never kept to any “pledge” or promise, whether political or personal, so will not be bound by his “Leave EU by 31 October 2019” one either, in my view.

As I have blogged previously, Boris Johnson likes to be presented as a strong maverick character, whereas in fact he is actually rather weak: weak in logic, weak in general knowledge, weak in resolve, weak in ethical standards, weak politically.

Philip Hammond puts it more diplomatically: ” “He is actually a more complex personality than it sometimes seems,” Hammond said of Johnson in his interview. “He is a mainstream conservative on all topics except Brexit. I very much regret his attitude to Brexit. His own story, which is multicultural, multinational and liberal, speaks for itself.” [The Guardian].

Hammond’s words of course are two-edged and allude to Johnson’s part-Jew, part-Muslim, born-in-USA (and brought up largely in USA and Belgium) background, as well as his loose and indeed louche morality.

I may be overthinking this, because I do not see Boris Johnson as a determined —or indeed any sort of— planner (except in terms of trying to become Prime Minister for the past 20+ years), but I wonder whether Johnson foresaw that the Commons would block fulfilment of his “Brexit on WTO terms by 31 October” so-called “pledge”? After all, it would hardly require clairvoyance. The House of Commons has a large Remain majority.

If Boris Johnson “pledges” to leave on WTO terms on 31 October 2019 and if that is then blocked by the Remain majority in the Commons, Johnson can then sigh loudly in public and say “I did my best, but have been stabbed in the back by all those pro-EU MPs…”, thus absolving him from blame for not “delivering Brexit” (the EU will very likely grant further “extensons” etc…). Johnson can then present himself as the Tribune of the People, fighting the corrupt Remain MPs. A hero to fools…

From Johnson’s point of view, perfect. No need to actually negotiate with people who are more intelligent, more knowledgeable, better prepared than Johnson himself ever is, no need to put in much effort and, finally, also parking tanks on the lawn of Farage and Brexit Party (that less certain, though).

What if it goes wrong for Boris-Idiot and there is a no-confidence vote? I am wondering whether the prospect of this stupid clown as Prime Minister, even leaving aside Brexit, might not be enough to make some Conservative Party MPs abstain in a no-confidence vote. I would not bet against it.

If Labour put forward a no-confidence vote, and if that succeeds, it might not mean an immediate general election. The Conservatives can put forward another, less obviously clownish MP as their prime ministerial choice. If all the Conservatives and all the DUP support that person, then that freezes out Corbyn and Labour for a while.

What if there is a general election? If Brexit Party put up a fairly full slate of candidates in England, and if at least some form of Brexit has not happened by then, there might well be an explosion of rage from the half of the country (more than half) that voted Leave in 2016. That explosion might well not spare the Conservatives who have so badly handled the Brexit negotiations for the past 3 years. After all, that inept performance calls to mind the other stupidities of the past decade.

Scotland seems likely to vote at least 40% SNP in a general election, creating (maintaining) a bloc of about 40-50 Westminster MPs. As for England and Wales, if you take out the blacks and browns (etc), and you take out London (and Gibraltar, which has no votes in Westminster elections), the Leave vote was around 70%. What does this mean?

First of all, Brexit is not the only issue. The socio-economic problems of the country play more to Labour’s advantage. What is letting down Labour electorally now is that it is seen to be largely the party of the blacks and browns, the immigrants and their offspring, as well as public service workers, and those reliant on State benefits. I speak in broad-brush terms of course.

The people who are voting Labour now and might vote Labour in any 2019 general election are concentrated in quite few seats, about 200-250, but some polls are saying that only 40% of 2017 Labour voters will vote Labour if there is a general election this year. Translating that into seats is not easy, but it could mean a substantial reduction from the position now.

The above is however affected by the effect Brexit Party might have on the Conservative vote, bearing in mind that, as with Labour, as high as 60% of 2017 Conservative voters say that they will not be voting Con next time.

If Brexit Party puts up candidates all over England and Wales, and scores at least 15% nationwide, the present 312 Conservative seats will reduce to about 250 and possibly fewer. Most will fall to the LibDems or Labour, but no doubt Brexit Party could win a few too. If Brexit Party can score 20%+ nationwide, then there might be only 150 Conservative MPs left.

We are in minority, possibly coalition, territory. Either

  • Labour + SNP or
  • Labour + LibDems; or
  • Conservative + Brexit Party or
  • Conservative + LibDems

One intriguing fact is that Boris Johnson is apparently marginally more popular with Brexit Party members than he is with Conservative Party members.

My guess today (in this volatile climate, one alters perceptions almost daily) is that it is a race between Labour’s vote (especially in the North) collapsing and the Conservative vote collapsing in much of the country, and weakened further by the existence of Brexit Party (even if Brexit Party itself scarcely wins a seat).

I cannot see Boris-Idiot lasting for long as Prime Minister— he is completely unsuited for such a position; but having said that, the country has already gone half-mad…

Postscript

I had scarcely published the above when, about an hour after that, the Guardian published the report below:

Update, 10 April 2021

Nearly two years later from when I wrote the above blog post, we look back at the December 2019 General Election and see that most of the analysis was correct. What made the prediction of Conservative Party electoral collapse misfire was the event few —if any— predicted, meaning that Nigel Farage, snake oil salesman, stabbed his own pay in the back, and withdrawing from active participation the majority of Brexit Party candidates, all of whom had actually paid for their own deposits (and more)!

All or almost all Conservative Party candidates were given a clear run by Brexit Party. Brexit Party candidates in some formerly Labour seats where the Conservative Party was always unlikely to win, were allowed to stand, as in Hartlepool, where the Brexit Party 2-i-c, Richard Tice, came a very close third and, had the party not been killed by its own leader, might have pulled off an historic coup in a seat Labour-held since it was created. Farage’s actions destroyed Brexit Party credibility during the campaign.

The net result was that, with most intended Brexit Party votes going to Conservative candidates, the Con Party achieved a huge 80-seat overall majority. Many Conservative candidates, especially in the North, won by fewer than 2,000 votes. Had Brexit Party put up more than a token fight, the Conservative Party might well not have achieved a majority at all.

As for Nigel Farage, after his treachery in 2019, he had the gall to wind up Brexit Party (literally, since it was set up as a private company) and start yet another party, Reform Party or Reform UK, which he then abandoned when offered a great deal of money in business. An out and out, controlled-opposition, con-man.
