Another rather dull-looking day, so some wake-up music:
“News you can use”
Useful tips, though not all are applicable to the UK/Western European situation.
The world can be a very strange place…
More tweets seen
More Twitter shenanigans. I noticed an interview with Twitter’s former head of European affairs. Seemed to be a Jew. What a surprise.
In fact, when I was expelled from Twitter in 2018 (after a small pack of Jews targeted me…but what goes around comes around…), I had just on 3,000 “followers”, which I suppose equates to about 6,000 in 2021 (the “follower” count increases for most accounts over time almost automatically). The funny thing was that the level was kept (apparently artificially) just below 3,000; had been for some time. Obviously manipulated.
I have blogged about these matter previously. While I usually steer clear of Scottish politics, not having much studied the subject (and having never even visited the country), the overall effect on Westminster is a different matter.
If the presently-ruling SNP, as Scottish Government, holds some form of referendum and decides to leave the UK, as Hitchens seems to be saying, the Westminster government would have a choice: to repress that, as the Madrid government has done in Catalonia, or to say “au revoir” and “see you again“… I do not think that out and out repression would be the right response.
I do not see any need to remove the “Saltire” —St. Andrew’s Cross— from the Union flag even if Scotland declares “Independence”. The Union flag, now, reflects the historical position or record, nothing more.
The effect on Westminster politics of Scotland leaving the UK would be nuclear, however. I have examined this previously in detail, but in essence the position would be that 59 Scottish Westminster seats would go, 47-48 of them (1 SNP MP had whip removed) at present being SNP seats, only 6 Scottish Conservative seats.
It can be seen that that would leave Labour, in England and Wales, up that well-known creek without a paddle. It would be almost impossible for Labour even to form a minority government at Westminster (though I concede that “never say never” in UK politics).
On 2019 General Election results, that would mean that there would be 591 seats in the House of Commons, of which 364 would be Conservative, 201 Labour, 7 LibDem, 4 Plaid Cymru, and 1 Green (leaving 19 others aside).
On 2017 General Election results, the situation would be Conservative 316, Labour 256, LibDem 8, Plaid 4, Green 1 (leaving 18 others aside).
It can be seen the the Conservative Party would have a 60-seat overall majority on 2019 figures, and a 29-seat overall majority even on 2017 figures. Bearing in mind that the Speaker does not usually vote, and that Sinn Fein never take their seats, those majorities in practical terms increase by about 16 in both scenarii. So either a 76-seat majority or one of 45. Unassailable.
On the strategic level, I imagine that the Kremlin would regard Scottish withdrawal from the UK as a windfall of huge proportions, fracturing the NATO alliance and removing, probably, UK/NATO military, naval, and air deployments from Scottish territory.
On the UK domestic political level, it would mean that a Labour vote might be a wasted vote, and that there would be an embedded Conservative elected dictatorship anchored in Southern England. Labour as we now know it would retreat even more into being the party of the “blacks and browns” and/or public service employees, and there would be a far greater chance for social nationalism to go mainstream. On that basis, then, bring it on!
Professor Tettenborn, no less. I do not claim acquaintance with him, though I did sit with him and another person as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” at a student moot organized by Exeter University in 2002, and which was held at the historic Guildhall in the centre of Exeter.
That was my one and only time sitting as if in the seat of legal judgment. My loss, or society’s?
Seems that the UK Government is proposing to do away with anonymity on Twitter and other social media platforms. Oddly, some of the Jew-Zionist element have been pressing for this, which is ironic in that (alongside others) I (who always tweeted from one Twitter account in my own name) was trolled relentlessly by (mainly) Jews, many of whom affected anonymity, though some were eventually exposed in court in cases involving others.
A couple of the several guilty (almost all connected with the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism”) were Stephen Silverman of South Essex, who trolled under a number of pseudonyms until found out (now using the main account “@ssilvuk”), and Stephen Applebaum of Watford/Edgware, who also used a number of accounts (contrary to Twitter rules…) but who now mainly tweets as “@grubstreetsteve” and “@rattus2384”. Both of those named were exposed by the CAA’s own lawyer during a preliminary hearing in one of the Alison Chabloz private prosecutions (persecutions).
Neither Silverman nor Applebaum were ever charged with any offence for such activities. Silverman was supposed to be interviewed by police but weaselled out of attending, helped by “CAA” lawyers.
I have no great objection to the proposed new social media rules or laws on identity. I myself have never been a “troll”, indeed have been the target for trolls. As I say, mainly Jews and/or “antifascist” deadheads.
In a way, I look forward to the exposure of the identities of certain trolls presently anonymous or pseudonymous. A few of them must have fear in their hearts. Rightly so.
“The stars in their courses fight on the side of the just” [ancient Chinese saying].
There he is. Chris Whitty. One of the most prominent UK officials during the past year of disinformation, scam, lies, weaponizing of illness, and the Great Reset conspiracy. Not quite as bad, arguably, as Ferguson, but part of the same lot of narrowly-focussed technocrats.
The worst thing that any nation (assuming for the moment that the UK still is a “nation”) can do is put specialized scientists, numbers crunchers, and administrative medics in charge. The misnamed “SAGE” lot are halfway through destroying Britain’s short-term and medium-term future.
Well, I think that we know what we shall have to do, maybe not so far into the future. It will be hard, and will scar not only us but also our descendants, for generations, but it will have to be done.
Tested positive for Covid earlier. About 5/6 days on from the point in time where I think I picked it up. Only symptoms so far being a dry throat, and a slight increase in anti-Semitism which I've medicated by writing a piece on Christian Zionism. Should be posted at TOO soon.
I like what little I have heard of these “hundred-handers”. They are, it seems, akin to the samizdat (self-publishing) dissidents in the Soviet Union during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. When lies are all the public see, whether in mass media, from the churches, the schools and universities, the police, the corrupt political class, ONE SMALL PIECE OF TRUTH pierces the darkness.
WW2 begins with “Nazism” in history books.
No one talks about communism, or jewish interests, the bolsheviks or anything that led up to the war it always begins and ends with Nazi’s.
This is deliberately done so people dont see who the real enemies were.
My own I.Q. was once (long ago!) tested at 156, which is considered high, the global average being taken to be 100. The average for UK university students is supposed to be 125 (though I am citing a figure from the 1980s, before “everyone and his dog” went to a “university”, so the average for students must surely be lower now…). I believe that the British “dating club for eggheads”, MENSA, takes candidates with I.Q. levels above 140 or 142 (I cannot recall exactly, offhand).
That Christopher Langan biog. is an interesting read in terms of the “Nature v. nurture” debate. As Wikipedia notes, it is interesting to speculate as to whether Langan would have had a very different (easier? Less turbulent?) life had he had such background (and family wealth) as the Jewish scientist, Oppenheimer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Robert_Oppenheimer].
Hard for the sort of mediocre, self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits and/or Jews often noticed to describe someone such as Langan as “a knuckledragger”, but no doubt many would still do it. They certainly do it to other intelligent and well-educated social-national people; they have done it even to me! Fortunately, such ignorant critics are irrelevant both to me and general society.
High IQ is better than low, but high morality (in the sense of the Good, or compassion etc) is more important, or equally important; perhaps more important. We are used to thinking, perhaps from popular thrillers etc, of “clever” and “bad” as going together, whereas “bad” often goes with stupidity, in fact. The future must be both “clever” and “good”.
Nature v. nurture. A debate which has been lively since the time of Darwin, and arguably since much earlier times. The Jesuits said, following no less than Aristotle, “give me the child until he is seven, and I shall give you the man.”
Rudolf Steiner was right to place education in the forefront of society. The German National Socialists, with very different aims and methods, did the same. As did the Soviet Union. None was 100% “right” in terms of what was done. Even Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) schools are subject to criticism, sometimes ill-founded, sometimes not.
Whatever one may say about different forms of education, there is no doubt that, in the wider sense (meaning upbringing from birth, as well as more formal education), it is key to the future of the whole world.
People vary widely in their abilities. It should be the job of educationalists to discover what abilities a child has, and then to nurture them, both for the good of the child and for the good of society. Vocational dissatisfaction is at the root of many of the ills of society.
Also, it is not just a matter of stuffing the child with as much knowledge as possible, important as that may be. “EQ” (emotional intelligence) must run alongside I.Q. This idea is not new. After all, in exaggerated form it appears in Tom Brown’s Schooldays:
That formula, however, all but chucks out the idea of “IQ” and an education of facts. It is more akin to the basic National Socialist education of 1930s Germany. Not for nothing did Hitler admire the Boy Scout and Girl Guide movement of Baden Powell, and emulate it via the Hitlerjugend and Bund Deutscher Mädel.
The better ideal takes into account both the formation of intellect and the formation of character, including that of helping others: Durch Mitleid wissen (“Through compassion to knowledge”, the motto of the Knights of the Grail).
I wish that the “educational debate” in the UK were more about the themes noted above, and less about meaningless “grades”, “degrees” etc; and far less about “equality” (whether absolute or “of opportunity”).
I wonder what it would take to “raise the sense of personal threat” felt by members of “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”, the Department Under Matt and Boris”)? Or MPs, for that matter…
Of course, many MPs have contracted “the virus” and are still around. Are they incapable of learning?
Britain at the end of 2020
Yes, that is right. As Hitchens says; 1998, not 1997, I think. I remember reading about it, in an overpriced Sunday Times bought when I was living in Alexandria in early 1998.
Peace at any price…in 1997, the USA had its own agenda anyway. From the USA, the UK seems very much a sideshow (part of Europe/Eurasia), so Northern Ireland is “a sideshow of a sideshow”…
Ten persons, only two (or —unclear—four) of whom are white Northern Europeans. Britain’s crippled near future?
That sort of pseudo-SWAT militia is more now in evidence than previously. In the 1990s, they were mainly seen around Heathrow, often with smug semi-smiles on their faces. I often used to wonder what would happen in the event of a real terrorist outrage. Would the “robocops” really open fire with their Heckler & Kock MP5s? In a crowded terminal?! As seen often on Twitter, “genuine question”…
Having driven extensively in both Greece and Turkey (and in the Northern part of Cyprus), I am both unsurprised and (because I like the tweets of “European Housewife”) disinclined to comment!
I remember tweeter “Manon des sources” from when I had a Twitter account. She used to retweet my tweets occasionally.
Ah. If it is true that Ferguson is talking with (conspiring with?) Blair, then it becomes clear why Ferguson is still given a clear run on the BBC…
There has been a backlash, though. I notice that in Hampshire, where I live, the police command has decided to close a number of the local police Twitter accounts. Most were in fact interesting and informative, but I saw a couple which were obviously out of control. One was (it is not now tweeting and will be closed within a week or so) “@WatersideCops”, covering the western shoreline areas of the Solent, close to Southampton. That Twitter account was always pumping out propaganda about various things, particularly “racism” against “Roma” gypsies and so-called “travellers”, i.e. the caravan-dwellers once known as “tinkers”. Ironic, in view of the crime profile of the area (and areas around).
Often, though not always, civilian employees of the police are to blame for nonsensical tweeting.
Oh well…”Waterside Cops” will soon have to stop tweeting nonsense and start doing their real job better.
[Update, 2 January 2021: as of 29 December 2020, “Waterside Cops” were still threatening people who mocked their silly tweets! See below:
Nothing since then, so it looks as though the above silly and impotent tweet, posted not long before midnight —hm…—, will be the swansong of “Waterside Cops” on Twitter. Byeee!]
I suppose that I should not say more at present about the continuing persecution of the singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, the complaints against whom (like the malicious Jew-Zionist complaint made against me in 2017) have mostly been made by the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” in the person of Stephen Silverman of South Essex. Alison comes up for trial at the end of March 2021.
One has to ask, in general terms, how it is that a tiny fanatical pressure group has in recent years exercized such influence over the police of London, Essex, Derbyshire etc. Also, how it is that these Israel-fanatics are apparently welcome on LBC, Sky News etc. Well, I suppose that it depends on the (((political editors))) and on their (((bias)))…
Well, Enoch was right, in principle, about mass immigration, but as to mental hospitals, may or may not have been right. It is a complex problem. I agree, though, that he was, for all his erudition, often vain and silly.
Watched that excellent film, Waterloo. Rod Steiger is amazing as Napoleon, the man who changed the face of Europe even in defeat.
While watching I drank (probably too much) “blackstrap”, a mixture of cognac and port. A drink almost forgotten today, but which, before the First World War, was considered the drink of the Life Guards (officers) and (as and when permitted) Eton.
A good and warming drink, when taken in moderation.
“[Some Conservative MPs] believe Boris is no longer even clear in his own mind what his strategy is.
‘I don’t think even he knows what he’s trying to achieve now,’ a senior backbencher told me.“
“A cheery belief that something will turn up is not a strategy…Just as issuing increasingly vacuous homages to British stoicism, while roughly and randomly manhandling the British people from one lockdown tier to another, isn’t a strategy… ‘Everything will be all right in the end,’ Boris said last week. It won’t. And if he cannot see that, then the time has come for Tory MPs to make him face reality.” [Daily Mail]
Let us assume for a moment that the vaccine(s) expected actually work. What then? There is every chance that “the virus” will mutate, rendering the vaccine(s) almost useless. Or another virus may emerge, far worse than “Covid-19”.
Meanwhile, the economy of the UK will have been trashed to the extent that it may never recover.
People may think that I am being alarmist, but look at the facts. The UK economy was badly damaged by the First World War and the consequent government debt.
The Second World War made matters worse overall. Britain was saved, up to a point, by North Sea oil and gas, which started to come on stream in the late 1960s.
Another factor keeping Britain afloat after WW2 was the expansion of the world economy, with Britain advantaged in Africa and elsewhere by the policy of “Imperial Preference”.
Again, Britain after WW2 still had a functioning industrial and skills base, more so than the damaged, in some cases shattered, economies of mainland Europe.
However, instead of creating a wealth fund, as Norway and other oil producing states have done, the UK squandered its black gold on the same things noted by Correlli Barnett in relation to post-1945 policy: maintaining a mirage of being a global power, maintaining the Welfare State inc. NHS, and leaching money to private capitalist entities (such as the oil companies themselves).
The long-term trends are the ones that matter. Take the value of the US Dollar vis a vis the Pound Sterling. The pound/dollar exchange rate has freely floated since 1971, prior to which the official rate was fixed.
In 1972, the pound, boosted by North Sea oil and expansionist economic policies under Chancellor of the Exchequer Anthony Barber, reached not far short of USD $3 (about $2.70).
The pre-1971 rates cannot be compared to that because they were fixed. Prior to the 1930s, the UK was on the gold standard, so again the rates were not floating in the manner in which they now are. Still, it is interesting to reflect on the fact that the effective exchange rate in 1919 was about £1 Sterling to USD $4.50. It has been suggested that the rate in 1860, prior to the American Civil War, was effectively about £1 to $8!
At present, the pound is worth around USD $1.30, and that despite the poor state of the US Dollar itself.
The UK economy has become, since the 1970s, largely a service industry economy. The “lockdowns”, the facemask nonsense etc have hit the service industries hard.
The untold billions being sprayed across the economy by Rishi Sunak merely freeze the situation overall. The largesse “solves” nothing.
Already, 2.5M-3M unemployed are forecast for the UK by next year. That could turn into six million by 2022 (strange, that “six million” again…). Such events could give social-national politics the best chance since the 1930s, maybe even better. There has to be a suitable vehicle first.
It seems clear to me that the international “consensus” or “conspiracy” has decided to throw Europe as a whole on the scrapheap for several reasons. North America and the Far East are to be built up as world trading hubs. Europe is surplus to requirements. Its peoples are surplus to requirements.
This is what is behind so-called “Great Replacement” of Europeans by the blacks, browns and others. Once Europe consists mainly of blacks, browns, mixed-race offspring of mixed parentage, that new population will become a mass of controllable “pleb” consumers and serfs, raceless, cultureless, powerless.
That mass will be controlled and ruled by a oligarchic cabal or collection of cabals. Not merely Jews, though the Jewish-Zionist element will be major in all of it, and indeed already is.
The “Great Reset”. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. NWO/ZOG.
You can see the propaganda softening-up taking place. TV ads, “soaps”, TV dramas etc. All pushing the “mixed-race future” of what amounts to “White Genocide” to the so-far largely-supine British (and other European) masses.
There is only one way out of this for Europe— a social-national “reset”.

The SNP is the fake party par excellence, with its strident faux-nationalism and its support for both the Jewish lobby and the migration-invasion. Now it is pushing for even tighter control over freedom of expression, the “minister” behind that being of Pakistani origins.
In a way, I would love to see the SNP get —nominal— “independence” for Scotland, so that I could see the ruination thereby produced then —eventually— be visited upon the SNP, and on Sturgeon herself.
The NHS was a fine idea in its concept, and in many ways the NHS is a fine institution with very many very good people working in it. It does have flaws though, and it should not be a religion-substitute (as it is for many).
Personally, I do not favour custard-pie or milkshake-throwing as political statements; they trivialize resistance to the encroaching police state.
“The prisoner eventually learns to be grateful to his captors for almost anything. Once he has accepted his position as powerless victim, even the things he used to count as normal become luxuries.
So it is with most of us. Since we marched obediently into captivity last spring, we have turned servile. Look at us now, arguing about whether we should be in one tier of absurd limits on our lives, or another.”
“None of this has worked. As I have pointed out from the start, there is no evidence that the repeated throttling of our society and economy has saved a single life. Plenty of research confirms this.”
“if lawful protest is ignored, what do people think is going to happen when the P45s and the bankruptcies spread like a great puce blot across the country through the miserable winter months, and next spring brings no real release?“
The nonsense becomes ever more nonsensical, but some of the public are almost begging to be controlled more! What pathetic little serfs they are! How did Britain ever create an empire spanning a third of the entire world at one point? See the tweet by one David Wennington, below…
Boris-idiot, famously, “does not do detail”; trouble is, he is no good at “big picture” strategy either…
“As to all these nonsense conspiracy theories about creating a police state, they are just that: nonsense.” [Sarah Vine, Daily Mail]
Sarah Vine, scribbler, is of course married to Jewish-lobby doormat and expenses fraudster (and Cabinet Minister), Michael Gove.
“Nonsense”? Tell that to those who were walking in the Peak District when the toytown police state sent drones overhead to lecture them. Tell that to those whom the police stopped from driving harmlessly on motorways. Tell that to those brutalized by police because protesting about “virus” “lockdowns” etc.
That article is chick-lit-lite rubbish.
The readers’ comments in the Daily Mail are, to say the least, critical…
Some interesting words about women and their place in society, from Dr. Goebbels
The invasion across the Channel in small boats continues. Having said that, the real invasion, or 99% of it, is not like that. It is going on every day legally or semi-legally, via scheduled airport arrivals, student arrivals (many of whom never go home), “tourist” arrivals, work and business arrivals etc. A further “invasion”, even less obvious, is via births to non-European, non-white mothers in the UK.
The latest analysis shows that the real British people will be a minority in the UK by 2066. A very conservative date; I would suggest 2050 at latest. Possibly even 2040.
The NWO/ZOG “British” Government has no intention of stopping or even slowing the flow. Their only concern is to pull the wool over the eyes of the British people until it is too late.
I have blogged in the past about the necessary response, as things stand: social-national people must withdraw from the mainstream and form, not “communes” or collectives as such, but communities within suitable and already-existing towns and villages in one or two parts of the UK, in order to create a Schwerpunkt or concentration of force.
Such a concentration would develop real power, which would later retake the rest of the country.
“More than 2,000 adult asylum seekers arriving in the UK have lied about their age to be processed less harshly in the system as children.
Of the 3,755 ‘children’ investigated over their age by UK immigration since 2015 more than half were found to have been lying.” [Daily Mail]
The tragi-farce continues, despite all the evidence piling up of terrible public health outcomes generally, terrible financial and real-world economic pain looming ahead, and near-destruction of the civil liberties it took centuries to root in the British soil.
Well, it’s “lauding”, not “lording”! Still, if the cap fits…
As Nick Griffin has speculated, the System in the UK is itself split as respects “the Great Reset” and “the Great Replacement”.
The endless pathetic “advice”, “rules” etc emanating from ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” (aka DUMB, the “Department Under Matt and Boris”) put me in mind of Khrushchev’s words against Malenkov (see Khrushchev’s memoirs); he said that colourless bureaucrats are the most dangerous people to be given power. You can see that in many of these Government “virus” pronouncements. It is as if they are telling themselves…
“…now, let’s see….task for today is to lay down some totally unnecessary rules for pubs…hm…ah, yes, booze with a full order of food = good, booze with a bar snack = not good, and so banned. Great; that will do…”
“Golf courses? Oh, no, golfing in groups has to be banned, even if the group is just a few people; but shooting birds? Fine…up to 30 people…the Conservative Party faithful and donors will love that.”
The Church of England has been a joke for most of my lifetime, but now I feel that it has moved on even from that, and has slid to being a nullity, a complete and utter irrelevance. Sad, really, almost elegiac.
Of course it is a disgrace that MPs are to get a large pay increase at a time when so many are suffering, and when there will be a pay freeze for millions in the private sector as well as the public. Still, it may stoke justified resentment, and the next time an MP gets into trouble, scandal, or meets an unfortunate fate, there will be little sympathy.
We must now look at everything from a strict social-national and utilitarian point of view.
The UK msm is full of people such as Sonia Sodha [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonia_Sodha], working away to certain agendas. I wonder, in fact, how long it will be until newspapers like The Observer, unprofitable and ever-less influential, start to receive outright State subsidy on some such ground as “how necessary it is to retain a spectrum of opinion” (approved opinion, that is…).
We see msm drones and talking heads on, say, the Marr Show, or Sky News and BBC News newspaper reviews, but were any of them to seriously disrupt the narrative being put forward by the System, they would never appear again.
What worries me about the debate re. the facemask nonsense, the curfew, the “lockdowns” etc, is that we are in danger of losing sight of the big picture. “Coronavirus” has been weaponized for a purpose, the”Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” agenda. We must think how to achieve victory —against the odds— against that.
They seem to be a stout band of young people. Good to see their growing activities.
One of the 5 tweets that got me disbarred (at the instigation of a pack of Jews) in late 2016 was one —accurately— describing Sarkozy as a gesticulating little Jew. Well, seems that he had one or both of his gesticulating hands held out for bribes…
So far, the ludicrously-misnamed SAGE entity has demonstrated that my suggestion for a change of name is a good one— DUMB (Department Under Matt and Boris)…
What at first was ridiculous is now just sick.
Looks like even Peter Hitchens is coming to the view, reading between the lines, that MPs will in fact not listen until compelled to do so by events that they cannot ignore.
NWO. ZOG. The Great Reset. The Great Replacement. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.
Google the above or any of them, and you will be on the right track.
Switch “Jew-Zionist” for “liberal” and that is even more true.
Unsurprising. The System msm drones, BBC, Sky, whatever, all paid 10x, 20x, or 100x the pay of the average British person, know that their inflated salaries and fees will still be credited to their bank accounts or offshore trusts whether most of the UK is crumbling to dust or not. Same goes for System “experts”, MPs etc etc.
“Millions of overs 50s could be given orders to stay at home as part of Boris Johnson‘s ‘nuclear plans’ to avoid another national lockdown.” [Daily Mail]
The latest statistics show 4,000 infections per day, but well under 100 deaths per day (yesterday 74, the day before 10, I think; these figures inflated anyway) from or with “the virus”.
It seems that, at present, 1 person dies for every 80-400 persons known to be infected. Many are infected but show no symptoms, so the real figure for the death rate (even taking the deaths figure as accurate) may be 1 death per 5,000 or even 10,000 infected.
It does not surprise me that the ludicrously misnamed SAGE committee (I prefer DUMB— Department Under Matt and Boris) is worried about public disorder. Incidentally, it it their job or their business to worry about that aspect? I think not. I suppose that that is what happens when proper government and administration is replaced by dystopian nonsense from people like Dominic Cummings.
I (like the “Government”) have been surprised to see how compliant and easy to scare and corral and order about the British people have been, but there is (probably) a limit.
The idea that the clown currently posing as Prime Minister can “order” anyone over 50 to “stay home” in a form of house arrest for months, or even years, is absurd. Even leaving aside the legalities, how would that even be enforced?
We have seen how compliant the rabbits of the UK are, but such a measure would certainly be unenforceable. For one thing, there are many who, though over 50, and even over 60 (like me) do not —on a good day!— look over 50. The police cannot check everyone’s age and, in the UK, people do not have to carry any ID or age papers, legally. So will the Handmaid’s Tale militia now used by supermarkets be checking passports at the door? This is unbelievable!
I shall, if such an “order” is ever given, be “49” for the duration, just like an ageing Hollywood actress.
In any case, I doubt whether many shops would actually enforce an “under-50s only” policy, firstly because that would wipe out half their trade (and many would buy as little as possible online to punish those retailers); secondly, such a policy by shops would surely be contra “equalities” laws, though admittedly that was never my area of expertise when I was at the Bar.
The “Government” (of clowns) has painted itself into a corner. Instead of taking sensible and limited measures early, such as stopping most inward flights, shooting “refugees” (migrant-invaders) in the Channel, closing pubs, nightclubs and crowded sporting and other events for the duration or at least for a few months, and stopping the Underground, other train services and other public transport, the idiots ordered the “lockdown” (shutdown of the economy). Result? A collapsing economy and little effect on “the virus”.
The next “policy” made up on the spur of the moment has been the facemask nonsense. “Holland’s top scientists said there’s no solid evidence coverings work and warn they could even damage the fight against Covid-19” [Daily Mail, 2 August 2020]
“Kate Nicholls, of Hospitality UK, which represents pubs, restaurants and hotels, said shutting down ‘large chunks of the economy’ was a short-sighted strategy.
‘We need to be focusing on collective efforts to drive down and control infections,’ she said, adding that the hospitality industry directly employs 3.2 million, with another two million reliant through supply chains. ‘It’s simply too big to just switch off.
‘We would be talking about millions of people unemployed, a major loss of economic activity.‘” [Daily Mail]
One problem is that the people giving the ludicrous “orders” are people who have never actually run anything much, starting with part-Jew public entertainer Boris-idiot; then we have little Matt Hancock (did a year or so as a graduate teaboy at the Bank of England), Gavin Williamson (once a fireplace salesman with a pet spider), Dominic Cummings (tried to set up an airline in Russia 25 years ago; it failed after one flight); and let’s not forget the ivory tower merchants, Chris Whitty and idiotic Professor Ferguson (who said that 800,000 would die in the UK, and who broke his own rules by letting his married “ho” visit him during “lockdown”).
What a bunch of clowns! And we the people are expected to obey their confused and quite possibly unlawful decrees? Screw that.

Of course, not only the police, the Security Service etc know the identity, but also most MPs and many if not most journalists at the national level.
The mask is really coming off now. The “English gent” persona carefully crafted by Johnson since he was about 12 is now being replaced by the part-Jew, part-Turk charlatan playing the despot. That comes naturally to him. Johnson after all is not really English. As said, a part-Jew, part-Turk, born in New York City, brought up in the USA and Belgium until sent to Eton and Oxford to acquire the fake “English toff” persona (mask). Hard to say whether his patent inability to actually be an effective Prime Minister is an aggravating factor or a blessing in disguise.
Without going into the rights and wrongs, on the face of it this is more than a disturbing report about one particular case. It seems to show the way the police are going in the UK. Only 2 months ago, persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz had her bedroom invaded quite early in the morning by a whole crowd of (mostly non-white) police “officers”.
The “police state” in the UK may be a “toytown” one at present, usually, but it is clear where this is going.
Bars and pubs are the most likely places in which to transmit or get infected by “the virus”, so what does the government of clowns order? Pubs and bars can stay open and the customers can sit, drink, talk, shout or whatever without the requirement to wear a facemask or muzzle; but go next door to the supermarket and it’s “facemasks on or else!”. When did Britain become a country of scared unthinking rabbits ruled by clowns? I supposed that, like the Fall of the Roman Empire, it happened bit by bit, and almost unnoticed.
Imagine, a little pissant like Robert Jenrick posing as a Cabinet minister! Then again, Boris-idiot as Prime Minister…This whole situation veers between tragedy and farce.
As usual, unsurprising. A government of clowns, and an official Opposition which weakly supports (with mild carping) whatever the clowns are doing. Result? In a situation where the polled are asked which of the “main parties” (in which select group is included, ludicrously, the all-but-dead LibDem party) they support, people just say one or the other of Con or Lab, without conviction, without interest, despising both almost equally.
Poachers must be sought out and killed off. Their bases as well.
I do not know whether Dan Hodges ever “sold out” (as Corbyn supporters claim), because I have no idea whether he ever had any real political beliefs or principles before he started to doormat for the Jewish lobby and the Conservative Party. All that can be said is that the article above is as fine a piece of sycophantic rubbish as I have seen for many a day. In fact, the tweet accompanying it hits the spot better.
We never know what will happen in life. “Prepping” may not be as silly as many imagine…
I wonder whether many people would have imagined, say a year ago, that the UK government would shut down much of the economy, tell most people to stay at home unless shopping, and have the police going around harassing lone sunbathers on beaches, and elderly couples walking on the fells of the Peak District? Or that the entire population would be told to wear facemasks in shops etc, though not in pubs? Or on trains and buses, but not in offices?
Likewise, who would have thought, a year ago, that so-called “refugees” would be escorted across the Channel and put up in 4-star hotels (and given money on top) by the tough-talking “Conservative” government? Or that those detained ready to be deported would all be released?! Not many, I think.
How many of the over-50s, who were the ones that mainly voted “Conservative” in 2019, would have thought then that their being put under house arrest indefinitely would be a subject for serious discussion by the very government they had voted into unmerited office? Not many, I think.
So Tui is going to close down 166 travel agency shops. I suppose that that must add up to about 1,000 people losing their jobs. Tui is owned mainly by a Russian; for once a real one, not a Jew, but that has not improved his behaviour. He is supposedly worth USD $20 billion, and is the 4th-richest individual in Russia, yet in 2001, when already a billionaire, was paying only $600 a month to keep his ex-wife and their son alive…
Few in Russia would want the old Soviet system back, particularly the unfree sneaking and spying system run by the KGB (mainly the Second Chief Directorate), but the present system of oligarchy and near kleptocracy cannot last forever. Too many inequalities and, worse, too many inequities.
Of course, Tui closing its doors (only the offline ones) is not really a function of the Russian economy but solely of the UK one, meaning the mad “lockdown” shutdown.
Evening tweets seen
Yes. We are all used (in theory) to the idea of the “police state”, in which the state, and/or a dictator, tyrant, despot or fanatical political party imposes rule by force and penal laws.
What is so diabolically cunning about the present situation is that the public has in effect been scammed; fear has been weaponized. Not fear of the State or the police or the law, but of “the virus”. A fairly serious public health problem has been blown up into a deadly plague by which people will be killed.
Once the population internalized that fear, the other measures, such as police control, fines, social pressure, simply reinforced the feeling of social obedience or compliance.
The Charlottenburger Chaussee. There must be something like a hundred thousand there.
What happens when a part-Jew public entertainer poses as Prime Minister? Well, now we know:
“One official said ministers were right to act at speed, despite allegations that the gradual rise in cases could have led to smoother communications. “Given how quickly the virus can transmit, it doesn’t do to wait.”
Apart from the mixed messaging and brainless policies (the facemask nonsense, the shutting down of the economy, the cheap gimmicks— “£10 off a Wetherspoon lunch!”, “free bicycle repairs!” etc) around “the virus”, we now have a House of Lords farce as well!
It would take a brave novelist who had this as the plot of his political thriller: a part-Jew “British” maverick MP, son of a kind of careerist con-man, is born in the USA and brought up in both USA and Belgium, but nonetheless attends both Eton and Oxford and thus is able to take on the mantle of “the English gentleman”, though in exaggerated or cartoon form.
That charlatan, over the years, becomes both Mayor of London and MP. He does his best to create a pseudo-Churchillian persona, even to the extent of hamming up a hunched posture and a gruff voice on occasion.
Many are fooled by the charlatan MP. Those who are not fooled by his am-dram Churchill impressions are amused by his after-dinner speaking ability or his schoolboy plans and ideas, some of which he puts into practice as Mayor of London: a cable-car over the Thames (a failure); bendy buses that are unpopular (abandoned); water cannon that are bought but never used (abandoned, then sold for scrap); new “Routemaster”-style buses that however have no rear platforms, no openable windows, no ventilation and no air-con (all style and no substance, like the Mayor?); a bridge from Scotland to Ireland (not built so far); an artificial island in the Thames with a new huge airport on it (not built so far); another “garden” bridge over the Thames (abandoned) and so on.
The MP in that non-existent novel becomes Leader of the Conservative Party when most Conservative MPs back him, thinking that he will be an electoral asset, and when the only people able to vote, 140,000 Conservative Party members, mostly over retirement age (in a total UK population of nearly 70 million), support him.
As Prime Minister, the main character imposes a shutdown of the economy, ruins it and society for decades to come, and possibly indefinitely. He also forces the population to wear facemasks or muzzles on trains, planes, buses and in all shops, but not in pubs.
Finally, the dystopian novel ends (?) when the “Prime Minister” charlatan appoints all sorts of odd people to the House of Lords, including his own brother and the son of a Russian…former…KGB officer!
The charlatan “Prime Minister” even elevates, as a “baroness” in the House of Lords, a woman who applauded the IRA bombing at Warrington in 1993, which killed two young children. No, now that surely would be too implausible to put into a novel…
No, that proposed plot for a novel is just too far-fetched…
Obviously, one has no time for Nigel Farage and his “controlled opposition” to the System. Still, an interesting tweet.
Below, a tweet from someone who is always the tough guy (from a safe distance):
Sadly, simply sending the enemies of white Northern European culture and civilization emails or tweets (“threatening” or otherwise) will change nothing.
That Whitty person strikes me as one of the worst enemies of the British people at the present time. He may be merely incompetent, but I begin to think that he is or may be actively malicious.
On paper, Whitty is extremely well-qualified in both medicine and economics (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Whitty) and yet seems unable or unwilling to see the huge damage that the “lockdown” (shutdown) and the facemask nonsense is doing to this country’s economy and society. Or is he an “insider” in some wider global conspiracy? I note that he was or is tied up with Bill Gates and/or his Bill Gates Foundation (refer to Whitty’s Wikipedia entry).
In fact, the international conspiracy, in its various aspects, is becoming blatant, and yet the British “rabbits” are all walking about as ordered, in facemask muzzles. If ordered or socially-pressured, they would, many of them, still be out clapping like idiots at their own impoverishment and at the destruction of the future of their children and grandchildren.
Interesting. I knew that surgical masks are not exactly the same as most of those now imposed upon the shoppers of Britain, just as SAS urban-operational clothing is not ordinary black clothing but is made specifically for its likely use in dangerous situations; very tough and also flame-retardant. I certainly had no idea that surgical masks are not actually necessary at all.
Harold Wilson, as PM, certainly appointed or elevated a pack of treasonous Jews as members of the House of Lords; some corrupt types as well. I doubt though, whether he would ever have made “peers” out of the son of a [former] KGB officer, out of pro-IRA women etc. What do the idiots who troop out and vote “Conservative” think of that? Does the news make them think, for once? Just once? Probably not.
“SAGE”…what a bad joke! How about renaming it “DUMB.”? (Department Under Matt and Boris”?)…
You often read of, say, the days of Stalin, and about how the most extraordinary and Kafka-esque social conditions were induced by various methods of State and social pressure. “Couldn’t ever happen here!“, English people used to say. Well, they were wrong; and it will get worse.
True, no-one has been shot yet, but people are already being imprisoned or otherwise penalized for making a public speech (Jez Turner), singing songs mocking “holocaust” fakes and hoaxers (Alison Chabloz), or for putting up stickers in Cardiff (name unknown to me, but whoever he was, he got two and a half years! For putting a few stickers on lamp-posts!).
The above tweet shows other aspects of the same madness. The knee-bending plods would be yet another aspect of that same or an allied madness.
Saw a good description of the form of government now pretending to rule the UK: the “wallygarchy”.
The Boris-idiot government now wants people to wear masks in shops and elsewhere, despite the fact that these masks are really only useful when people are working in extremely close proximity, as in dental clinics. Even there, only one of the two people (the dentist) can wear one.
At the same time, this idiotic government wants people to go back to work, and also to spend freely in shops, restaurants etc.
Who on Earth would want to dine out, when the diners may be asked to wear masks?! This really has gone into farce now. Not even Little Britain territory, but that of Monty Python!
Shops? I myself do not much like shops anyway, but if “required” (forced) to wear a mask, I shall avoid them as much as I can. I doubt that I am alone. I suppose that the shoplifters will enjoy the extra protection, though (protection from identification, not from the dreaded virus).
This situation will accelerate the online shopping trend. I can see not just a few shops closing down, but most shops shutting up for good.
I feel rage against this ridiculous government of fools, who overblew the Coronavirus situation, scared the population out of its skin, destroyed much of the economy and plainly has little idea of how to get out of the hole, but is doubling down on the fear factor, insisting on masks etc.
Yes, Scotland is worse, but then it would be, under Sturgeon and her clan. As I predicted would happen, she is using the Coronavirus situation to pretend that Scotland is sort-of-independent already. Scottish borders must be protected! Not from mass immigration, though…
What strikes me about this particular government of idiots is how mixed are their messages: go back to work in offices and wherever, so that the cafes and pubs and shops can survive, but wear a mask and stay 3-6 feet away from everyone! No-one not desperate for some item will line up and wear a mask just to shop, and online shopping must be boosted even more by all this.
All because Boris-idiot and his government “locked-down” British society. Well, you can’t get toothpaste back in a tube, and the UK economy is now looking at a situation that is very bleak. “Lockdown”, Brexit (fake or otherwise), low pay, low State benefits. An economy dependent on consumerism and service industries.
“A reformed jewel thief has reportedly claimed that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell filmed powerful people having sex with underage girls.William Steel, an ex criminal turned writer, says he was shown footage of two high-profile US politicians having sex with minors.“[Daily Mirror]
I am not one of those who thinks that “the virus” does not exist. It exists. How it started to spread we do not know, whether accidentally, by Chinese negligence or design, or whatever. Once you get beyond there, however, things become very strange. It is “as if” this situation has been used by powerful forces to impose control on some societies.
We know that, so far, in the UK, only about 1,500 people have died entirely as a result of Coronavirus. Another 45,000 seem to have died with it, meaning that they had other very serious health problems and were “pushed over the edge” by getting the virus. Most were very elderly. Even then, the figure for deaths is somewhere around one death for every 1,600 or 1,700 people in the population. Most people either do not get the virus, or show no or very minor symptoms.
Anecdotal evidence is always limited in its applicability, of course, but I personally have not knowingly encountered anyone who has, or has had, this virus. Indeed, I know no-one who knows anyone who has, or has had, the virus.
I happened to have a word with my doctor recently, and in the course of a short conversation, I asked whether he and his colleagues had been busy with virus cases. He said that he and his colleagues had been busy with the usual range of cases but that the whole practice (about a dozen GPs) had seen only one patient with the virus, if I understood him correctly. He also noted that the whole area had had few cases.
Naturally, it is hardly surprising that one might never (knowingly) encounter anyone with this virus, in a situation where the vast majority of people either never get the virus or do get it but show no, or few, symptoms.
Now we look at the official response. The whole society, pretty much, closed down. People imprisoned in their homes (almost…yes, we were “allowed” to go and buy bread…). We all saw how the toytown police went mad. We saw how new pop-up hospitals were created, never used, then dismantled. Parks were prepared to become mass graves. Never used. Never happened.
Idiot scientists like that Ferguson fellow were saying that as many as 800,000 might die in the UK from Coronavirus. Not 45,000. Not 1,500. Also, that we must not meet anyone outside our own household (but Ferguson himself had his “ho” visit him, with her husband’s permission at that).
Question: who is the bigger “cuck”, that husband of the blonde “ho”, or the British people who accepted these absurd controls and restrictions without even thinking about saying “no”? The same British people (some of them, anyway) who obeyed the call to stand outside their houses, stupidly clapping, every week?
Now we are told that, despite the virus obviously having run its course, we must all wear facemasks when shopping, visiting pubs and restaurants! Screw that. I may be forced to buy food like that, but I cannot be forced to shop like that; neither can I be forced to visit pubs and restaurants in such joyless fashion. I would rather watch the High Street of Britain shut down. At least that might trigger social national rebellion.
State of the System parties
Pretty much as I thought. Conservatives somewhat ahead of Labour, not much. They are the Government party after all, and are there until, maybe, 2024 sometime. As for Labour— underwhelming. Its “new” mixture of Jewish lobby neo-Blairism, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense and “sensible” (they hope to look) support for much done by the Boris-idiot government does not attract many voters.
Hard to believe that this government, or apparently Dominic Cummings, may decide to scrap much of the Parachute Regiment, one of the most effective regiments of the British Army. Why? To save money and to be able to set up “cyber-warfare” units!
I can only agree with the contention that our society is moving gradually towards a “Mark of the Beast” dystopia; I say that despite the fact that, according to one system of numerology, my own name (Ian Robert Millard) adds up to 666!
Interesting, nicht wahr, the way in which people, in the UK, have been herded like sheep… Not much dictatorial “you WILL!” (or “you WILL NOT!“), but the engendering of a climate of fear, not of the Government or the police, but of something yet more sinister because unseen, supposedly deadly, possibly striking you from contact with your family, friends, or people encountered in the course of mundane life. Orders are then given “for public safety”. Wear facemasks, keep x-feet away from anyone etc.
What is really behind all this?
I do not think that you have to be much of a “conspiracy theorist” to see that this whole “Black Lives Matter” nonsense is being at some level co-ordinated. BBC, Sky, TV ads, all pushing the blacks in everything, and at the same time trying to normalize mixed relationships and marriages (and, above all, offspring). This is the “Great Replacement”, this is the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, and this is, down the line, “White Genocide”.
12 July 2020
The video clip below is from 2016 or 2017. It shows a “demonstration” (attack) by “antifa” untermenschen on an art gallery in East London which had an exhibition of work of which the untermenschen disapproved.
One brave individual (and, presumably, individualist) defends the right of free expression.
Another thing that is significant is that the individual there is subject to “deplatforming” by “antifa” and (before it existed under that name) “Black Lives Matter” urban rats not because the individual is “inciting” anything but simply because he silently expresses dissent by saying that freedom of expression should be protected.
Note the result. At first, vocal aggression against him, but finally violence from the black/brown/white traitor mob.
By the way, note how the toytown police allow the mob to bully and assault the lone dissenter…
You see the same thing online. First verbal attacks, usually by Jews but sometimes by white or black doormats of the Jews. Then there is a gang attempt at “deplatforming”, by getting the individual removed from, eg, Twitter, as has happened to so many, including Alison Chabloz; me too (to coin a phrase).
There is no easy answer to Zionist or Zionist-inspired intimidation, except to fight for freedom.
Not only was I too blocked by Owen Jones when I had a Twitter account, but he told John Woodcock (the then MP, sex pest, depressive mental case, and doormat for Israel and the Jewish lobby), outright on Twitter, to block me (Woodcock complied at once!)…
Interesting! A woman called Clare Hazell-Iveagh, apparently from Suffolk, here [above] photographed with the Jew Zionist criminal Epstein (now gone up the chimney) and with Ghislaine “Maxwell” (still alive but under detention). Intriguing combination: seen with Jew criminals trafficking minors for sex, allegedly owned a model agency, and is or was head of West Suffolk NSPCC (again allegedly; I do not see her on their present main/national website: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/about-us/organisation-structure/executive-board-trustees-pay/).
Incidentally, the Daily Mail refers to the woman, formerly plain Clare Hazell, as a “British aristocrat“, though she may be American or anyway a former resident in the USA, having owned a model agency in Ohio, it seems. As for “aristocrat”, that is bending the facts whichever way you look at it. Even leaving aside the lady herself, the Earldom of Iveagh was only created for the head of the Guinness brewing family in 1919. The present Earl of Iveagh is the 4th. Like most of the present supposed “aristocracy” of England, a 20th Century creation or invention.
Below, a tweet about Jew terrorism in the UK:
I saw this unintentionally amusing tweet:
In fact, I might agree with the main point, but the fact that ridiculous creatures such as Lammy are now barristers takes away from the credibility of the Bar and the English system of law in general.
He’s right, too. What an incredible piece of police state cruelty. A boy of 12 (!) “taken to custody” for allegedly posting a few silly things about a black footballer online. Also, West Midlands Police seem unaware that there is no crime in this country called “racism”. Plod off.
Further to the above, Jez Turner of the London Forum was actually imprisoned in 2018 for the “crime” of stating, in a speech in Whitehall, that Jews should be driven out of England as they were in the past. Typical double standard.
I had never heard of Nish Kumar until today. Some non-European migrant-invader or offspring of, who apparently told a funny (I doubt it) joke to the effect that the white audience should go and kill their own parents (for being white). Oh, that’s fine…the insulted are “only” British white people, who created most of what is valuable in this world in the past two thousand years, together with other Europeans.
Writing as a (former, thanks to the Jew pack that instigated my political disbarment in 2016) barrister, I have never heard of anything called the “Comedian Defence“, as raised by so many pro-multikulti tweeters; as in “though what I said directly incites violence, I AM A COMEDIAN, and so I can use words inciting violence, including murder, without penalty.”
My “fantasy politics” first reaction? Drop a tiny atom bomb on the lot of them… This was a nation, with rough edges to be sure, but now is just a concreted mess full of urban rats, and most of the whites no better than the blacks. Other tweets say that this was in Crawley (West Sussex)).
Crawley has obviously deteriorated. When I returned from a misadventure in Rhodesia, in 1977, I eventually got various short-term jobs. One was in Crawley, working 12-hour shifts in a huge bakery, or better put, bread factory. I think that it was called Mother’s Pride. I worked overnight, wearing huge padded mittens that went up to the shoulder, stacking red-hot baking trays that had just come from the huge automated oven, the mouth of which was like the mouth of Hell in a Doré print, and about the width of a domestic garage.
The whole industrialized process was automated, and the plant so hot that one felt dried out even in a subzero winter with massive hangar doors open.
Well, Crawley itself was not so bad, despite being a concrete 1950s or 1960s new town . I recall buying, for a lady I liked in Berkshire, a small wooden crate of Lindt liqueur chocolates there, before I caught my train back to Reigate from Crawley Station.
Crawley, like most of Britain, has evidently deteriorated, looking at that clip of cultureless ugly harridans and their mixed-race offspring.
The great achievement of Kemal Ataturk was to take Turkey out of the maelstrom of a world in conflict and chaos. A secular state, with freedom of religion; new cities; neutrality (in particular, neutrality in the Second World War); social advancement; public education. And so on.
Now, Erdogan is ranging himself more clearly on the side of, not only the Arab and Muslim states, but on the side of the Islamist crazies.
I liked Turkey on the whole during my several visits, in one of which I drove there from England and lived in Fethiye, on the Turquoise Coast, for several months (in 2001). In most respects, it is more impressive than Greece.
Now, the great legacy of Ataturk is being undone. A pity.
“Private hospitals are empty and up to 40,000 NHS beds lie unused amid mounting fury over the handling of non coronavirus treatment as thousands of operations are cancelled and cancers go undetected.
Figures suggest that up to four times the number of beds are free than normal for this time of year after a huge slowdown in non Covid-19 admissions as health bosses aim their focus at the pandemic response.
Hospitals have cancelled ‘thousands’ of their non-urgent surgeries – like hip and knee operations and IVF treatment – to free up space for infected patients, and operating theatres, equipped with oxygen supplies, have been turned into coronavirus wards.
Nightingale hospitals, built for the expected surge in coronavirus victims, are also largely empty, and private hospitals taken over by the NHS at a cost of hundreds of millions of pounds are also barely being used.” [Daily Mail]
“Medics say up to 2,700 cancers are being missed every week as the numbers being referred by doctors for urgent hospital appointments or checks had dropped by 75 per cent. Professor Karol Sikora, a cancer specialist, has warned that the impact of the coronavirus outbreak could result in 50,000 cancer deaths.
Meanwhile NHS staff have been accused of making a ‘mockery’ of the health service as they faced a barrage of criticism for posting ‘tone deaf’ and ‘disrespectful’ videos of dance routines on coronavirus wards while seriously ill patients have their medical treatment delayed.” [Daily Mail]
[above: “NHS staff at the Tavistock Day Case Theatre in West Devon were forced to apologise after they filmed themselves performing a traditional Maori chant“—Daily Mail]
“Clap for the NHS”? Nein danke. The NHS is a very good thing, in principle, but the fact is that maladministration is a major problem, as well as underfunding. I have no time for virtue-signalling, nor for de facto enforced “community-ism”.
“NIGHTINGALES COULD BE RE-PURPOSED
It emerged today that NHS Nightingale hospitals could be ‘re-purposed’ to treat non-coronavirus patients to clear a mounting backlog of cancelled operations and other treatments.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace yesterday said empty beds at the seven Nightingales around the country may be used for cases including cancer sufferers or ‘stepdown’ patients on the road to recovery.
It came as the Nightingales remain largely empty despite having the capacity for up to 11,000 patients.
The first of the seven major sites in England to open at the ExCel Centre in East London has so far treated just 41 patients despite already having a capacity of 500.
And the transfer of more than 30 patients to the hospital which opened on April 3 was allegedly ‘cancelled due to staffing shortages’, according to NHS documents.
Of the 41 patients treated in London, four have died, seven have been discharged to a less critical level of care and the other 30 are still having treatment there.
There have since been three more Nightingales open – in Birmingham on April 16, in Manchester the following day and in Harrogate in North Yorkshire on Tuesday.
The NHS has not yet provided data on how many people have been treated by any of these three, although the figure is believed to be dozens at best. This means the total number of patients treated at the four sites could be under 100.” [Daily Mail]
So, after all the hullabaloo around the huge instant “Nightingale” hospitals, at least one (on Tyneside) never opened for patients at all, and the others outside London have had few if any patients. The London one, capacity 500, which was supposed to be treating “thousands” of critically-ill patients has in fact received only 41!
Of those 41, 7 have been discharged, 30 are still there, and 4 have died. So, with known infection rates in London falling quite fast now, it looks as though the London Nightingale will soon be redundant unless repurposed, but it is a “hospital” good for only one thing— keeping patients alive who need ventilation or oxygen. It has no operating theatres or other usual hospital facilities, so it looks as if Ben Wallace is talking out of his ****.
Sweden, Britain, washing hands and other questions
It has been obvious to the non-brainwashed since the beginning of the Coronavirus situation that the only known way to stop its spread is widespread washing of hands, thoroughly, with soap and water. As I blogged almost two months ago, the survey of 2015, showing the levels of personal hygiene across Europe, exposed the fact that Italy, Spain and France were the least hygienic, the very countries where the pro rata infection rates have been highest.
Likewise, the only other really useful measures to help stop the infection on a mass basis are closure of or avoidance of crowded, hot, places where many excited people gather: popular concerts and dances, nightclubs, underground and other trains. Preventing people from walking, sunbathing, sitting on beaches or park benches are useless wastes of time.
Coverage of Sweden's rational approach to Covid-19 is perhaps becoming less hostile as the weeks go by https://t.co/BCQ6CG2sKI
Countries that avoided hard shutdowns have had fewer deaths per million – Japan (1.2 coronavirus deaths per million), South Korea (4.3), Singapore (1.8) and Taiwan (0.3) – than those that imposed most severe rules – Spain (397.6), Italy (358.2), France (256.3) and the UK (193.5). https://t.co/nxdci442Y2
It seems a strange idea at first blush. After all, we are brought up to believe that diseases generally attack people on an equal-opportunity basis. Whites, blacks, whatever. However, that is, like much of what people are told to believe, not actually true.
It is well known that some diseases attack, or conditions affect, only blacks: sickle-cell anaemia is one (showing that blacks do not belong in Northern climes). Likewise, though NHS and other propaganda concealed it or tried to conceal it, HIV/AIDS was much more easily contracted by blacks, half-caste blacks etc than by Europeans, especially those from North-West Europe or with family origins there.
Now we see Coronavirus affecting, in the UK for example, people of all racial origins, yes, but so called BAME people (including Jews) far worse than those of what might be called “Aryan” or more accurately “post-Aryan” origins.
Age is obviously the most important demographic factor in Coronavirus infection, symptomatics and mortality, but after that the racial aspect is obviously significant, though the importance is blurred by social factors such as modes of life, ways of life and living, housing etc.
I was struck by the Boris Johnson case. Here you have someone aged 55, of not only European but also Turkish and Jewish origins. He gets the virus and, it seems, was lucky not to die from it. His fiancee, Carrie Symonds, apparently European, and only 32 years old, showed symptoms and tested positive but suffered no more than slight discomfort before swiftly recovering. Makes you think…
1/2 Government ought to be alarmed by Daily Mail editorial today :'This national paralysis must end soon. The Government simply must not, whatever its top scientist blithely warns, let the shutdown drag on for a year…
I had to go out in late afternoon (Friday afternoon) on an errand even the new UK bully police would certify as “essential”, so was able to observe how many people were out and about in my corner of Southern England. In fact, quite a few.
I remember when the “lockdown” nonsense started, a few weeks ago (though it seems far longer). The roads were empty. Now, today, I should say that, though the traffic has not built up to the Friday or any weekday norm, there was rather a lot of traffic around. Private cars as well as delivery vehicles. Quite a few people on bicycles, too.
A police car saw me as I passed in the opposite direction. The police car had cars ahead of and behind it. It slowed. I wondered whether the driver wanted to check me out, but was unable to do so because of the road situation. In fact, he would have been wasting his time. My car has valid MOT, is properly registered, as well as fully insured and so on; my UK licence is up to date and without “points”. In short, and in those senses only, I am “kosher”!
As I blogged yesterday, there is a “yes, repeat no” thing going on. No-one in the UK is rioting about this nonsense of the whole population being placed under conditional house arrest; no-one is even protesting loudly in the streets. Yet, with the weather warm, people are just taking their chances of being hassled by the toytown police, in the knowledge that the relatively few police around cannot, despite being more in evidence than pre-Coronavirus, arrest, ticket, or even talk to every motorist, every walking couple, every sunbathing young lady…
It reminds me of what happened in 1989. In 1988, I crossed the “East German” (DDR) border by car from Poland, then the next day into the then West Germany (Bundesrepublik). The border was rather fearsome in a quiet way, despite the fact that I crossed at a little-used and rural crossing-point in the south of the DDR.
Yet, only a year later, triggered by an announcement from a government minister (seemingly unintended), thousands of DDR citizens built up at the Berlin Wall and just started to cross. The Grenzpolizei (border police, aka Grepos) did not know what to do…so did nothing. One illegal crosser— shoot him; a thousand? Ten thousand. Impossible.
That, in minor key, is the situation the UK police are in now. They can throw their weight around when only a small number of (harmless, law-abiding English) people are involved, but when a thousand or a million people decide that they have had enough of the misconceived (and in any case pointless) “lockdown” petty tyranny, the police are powerless to stop those people from doing things such as driving around, visiting beaches, walking in parks or even —what wickedness!— sunbathing…

The scenes at #WestminsterBridge and in other parts of the UK really angered me. Social distancing went out the window, and the very same services who tell us to #StayHomeSaveLives abandoned it for a bit of self-organised congratulations..
Many people evidently have taken the “lockdown” at face value. This was an attempt by the global self-styled “elite” power club to see how far they can go in turning notionally “free” people into obedient, compliant, and above all unaware and bamboozled, serfs, clapping their own house arrest, in effect. Look at Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner and Common Purpose “alumna”, right there in the forefront. I was thinking that this was the result of stupidity [cf. the view of @ClarkeMicah/Peter Hitchens] but I veer now to conspiracy.
The plebs are easily manipulated…
“A woman says she was “named and shamed” by neighbours after she fell asleep and missed the weekly clap for carers tribute to NHS staff and key workers.
The mother said had been tired after “a rough night” with her son, and inadvertently failed to take part in the event despite having done so in previous weeks.” [Sky News]
If people actively wish to applaud the NHS, then that is their business and good for them. But any sort of compulsion or shaming directed against anyone who does not join in is totalitarian in nature. Applause that is not voluntary and spontaneous is worthless. https://t.co/qm8ChHxwXN
“The woman went on to write: “I just feel like I’m a total outcast on my previously friendly street now even though only one person posted it and only two others agreed
“It’s really disturbing how quickly people are ready to turn on each other and ‘report’ each other.”” [Sky News]
What many of the unthinking plebs would love would be a kind of “Nuremberg Trial” or kangaroo court every month (or week), with dissidents suitably “named and shamed” and then put in virtual or actual stocks so that the mob can throw things at anyone not going along with the official line.
Some “dissident” tweets
Sweden is taking the rational, considered approach any grown-up government would take. You need to ask, why is the UK government acting like a collection of hysterical prep-school boys? https://t.co/A0Z15KMTT1
This is just the abuse of power by petty authority for its own sake. There is no reason to it. Exercise will *protect* people, especially older people, from illness and so reduce the general pressure on the NHS. People exercising have no major risk of breaking distancing rules. https://t.co/bgvKRUlbTv
Like most barristers (in my case, “ex”, since late 2016) who have done criminal trials, I am thoroughly in favour of juries, not because they are educated, intelligent, logical, or have any knowledge of the law beyond what the judge chooses to share with them (direct them as to), for mostly those qualities do not apply. No, the value of the jury is in the “sense of justice” within that small conclave. That may go against “the law” as written, against the evidence in some cases. It is a mystery, a mystery which worries the neat and little minds of some.
I can think of a few cases from my pupillage and later my own Bar experience (though I stopped doing most criminal work after a year or two, around 1995); other cases I have in mind were far more serious trials where the State was obviously thought, by the jury, to have gone “too far”.
The problem that we now have is that juries are so brainwashed by State and/or politically-correct propaganda that the accused might often actually be better off being tried by a “Diplock Court” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplock_court].
Care homes are a separate issue @dermotmcgrath. The government, especially after observing Italy, should have quarantined them. But it preferred to pretend (I think it still does) that Covid-19 was equally dangerous to everybody, and to make grandiose gestures. https://t.co/lKwT60MjEe
Remarkable story from The Guardian. Cummings' place on SAGE must considerably lessen the authority of Downing St "guided by the science" line, given we now know, that to some extent at least, that scientific advice has been influenced by well, Downing St. https://t.co/XgwJQpyWCv
Have just spoken to Sir Bob Kerslake, former Head of the Civil Service. He told me that if Cummings is a full member of SAGE: “it’s both surprising and concerning. The risk is the government is leading the science when it’s supposed to be the other way round.”
