“At least one in five working-age families in most UK constituencies – including in Liz Truss’s seat – would lose out by hundreds of pounds on average if real-terms benefit cuts go ahead, a study has found.
The scale of the impact of a below-inflation rise on already struggling households and by extension, local shops and businesses, is revealed in a study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). It would amount to the biggest-ever real terms cut to benefits in a single year.
The findings will increase pressure on the prime minister to stick to promises made by her predecessor, Boris Johnson, to guarantee benefits would rise next April in line with September inflation – about 10% – rather than by the rise in earnings figure of 6%. This real-terms cut would deliver around £5bn in savings to the Treasury.
Dozens of backbench Tory MPs are understood to be prepared to rebel over real-terms benefits cuts, while a number of cabinet ministers – including Penny Mordaunt and Robert Buckland – have also signalled their opposition.
The JRF analysis shows seven out of 10 MPs represent areas where at least 20% of households are reliant on universal credit and other means-tested benefits.These include 193 Conservative seats, including a number of key marginals where over a third of working-age families would be affected by a cut.
“Politicians should think long and hard about the impact of withholding hundreds of pounds from thousands of families in their constituencies when the basic rate of benefits is already at its lowest in real terms for 40 years and prices are sky-high,” said Katie Schmuecker, JRF’s principal policy adviser
Families in ”red wall” seats in one-time Labour strongholds taken by the Conservatives at the last general election would be particularly badly affected by real-term benefit cuts. They include Blackpool South, where nearly half (46%) of households stand to lose out, Burnley (38%), and Redcar (33%).
The JRF analysis shows that even in the most affluent constituencies at least one in 10 households are on means-tested benefits.
Most Conservative Party MPs voting for the proposed measures will be turkeys voting for Christmas.
“A former academic at University College London must pay almost £50,000 in damages to a former colleague after falsely portraying her as a sex worker on social media as part of a months-long campaign of harassment.
Christopher Backhouse, a former research fellow at the department of physics and astronomy at UCL, has settled to pay £49,975 to Erica Smith, a physicist and a postdoctoral fellow at Indiana University in the US.
Backhouse was revealed as the perpetrator after Smith enlisted a US lawyer to subpoena Twitter and Google. Documents from the tech giants identified an IP address in London, despite great lengths by the perpetrator to cover their tracks using global proxy servers, the court heard.

Deadhead MP and now, absurdly, Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Health, Therese Coffey, still attracting critical and/or incredulous tweets:
It is shaming for Britain to be represented by such as stupidly ignorant “ho” Liz Truss, ugly, nasty moneygrubbing drunk Therese Coffey, woolly-head Kwarteng, and ignorant half-caste James Cleverly.
The present Cabinet has no legitimacy.
The question is how to get rid of them.

It will be recalled that Derbyshire Police (one of the worst-performing forces in the UK) was instrumental in the Jew-Zionist campaign against satirist Alison Chabloz, and its Police and Crime Commissioner at the time (removed in 2021) was a Labour Party drone, a Sikh, who was basically suborned some years ago by the malicious small pressure group called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].
Derbyshire Police was also one of the worst police forces involved in illegal bullying of the public during the “panicdemic” of 2020-2021.
Talking about the police and their slide into becoming a pathetic poundland KGB, what about this, below?
The ridiculous little twerp of a policeman shown is indeed, as the tweeter writes, egregious in his behaviour.
“Labour” is now just a label. In fact, one of Labour’s least impressive MPs, the unpleasant self-publicist Jess Phillips, said a few years ago that it was “just a f****** rose” (a reference to its symbol).
Labour is riding high in the opinion polls now by default, the Conservative Party having all but imploded, but Labour, in itself, is every bit as rubbish as the Conservative Party.
Both main parties are just one System, really.
A “coup” launched by Jews, and doormats of the Jewish lobby; Lisa Nandy being one of the latter.

134,000. At ~4 persons per family, that works out at about 35,000 homes required. Homes which should be going to British people.
I have seen a few comments on Twitter, mostly from the sort of people who are now quite often in evidence in England, for example from one well-known pro-Labour (Corbyn-Labour, lesbian, and half-caste) activist, to the effect that the death of Queen Elizabeth is of no importance, and that people should focus on energy prices, low pay, inadequate State benefits etc. I disagree.
The death of even one person has meaning, and when the death is that of a truly global figure such as Queen Elizabeth, the State and the society of —in this case— England and Britain is shaken to the core, no matter what else, even of great importance, is happening at or around the same time.
It is not a matter of whether one is a monarchist or not. I myself am not —as such— a monarchist or royalist, and believe that different socio-political arrangements fit national requirements at different times. Neither of my parents was royalist and, in the early 1960s, the royals (mainly the Queen herself, and the Queen Mother), were only glimpsed (by my own family) from afar, both on the TV and at the racecourse (Ascot, Newbury and, occasionally but later, in the early 1970s, Windsor).
All the same, for an Englishman such as myself, born in 1956, only a few years after the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth, her presence, even though experienced mainly on television or in the Press, has been part of the backdrop for my own life, and the lives of others of my generation, whether we like it or not.
As a person usually described as “social nationalist”, though others say some variety of “national socialist”, and even (per the Dowager Lady Birdwood, circa 1975), “national bolshevik“, I cannot but wonder whether all the inhabitants of these islands are affected similarly by this momentous and very recent event.
While I have met blacks (West Indians and a few others) who were both royalist and also had quasi-patriotic feelings about the UK, my impression is that the bulk of the “blacks and browns” (and other such as Chinese) now in the UK have no such feeling or sentiment.
The young Jamaicans, or other West Indies-origined, of the inner cities, the hordes of more recent Chinese immigrants who have flooded the UK (especially though not exclusively in London and the south of England), the Pakistanis and other Muslims, the fake or other “refugees” of various kinds (eg the recent though smallish Ukrainian or supposedly Ukrainian influx) have no sentiment toward either this country or the Monarchy. To them, even those born here, Britain is a place to live in, benefit from, in some cases work in or make money in. A mere geographic space. Most of them have no patriotic feeling, no knowledge of our history, no real connection at all. They are just…here.
I am talking not about politics, or policy, or power, but of
“This royal throne of kings, this scepter’d isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England“
There is also an age-demographical point here. The younger English too (and Welsh and Scottish) people around, particularly those aged maybe up to 35, are often emotionally distant not only from the Monarchy, but also from the race and nation.
You see msm vox pop, or Twitter, comments, or appearances on TV quiz shows, from those broadly “young”, let us say 18-30, which are so lacking in basic knowledge of England’s (and the world’s) history etc that those talking might as well have just arrived from Mars.
For many of the “young”, the members of the Royal Family are, as I have blogged in the past, basically denizens of the empty and stupid milieu of supposed “celebrity”, not essentially different from the casts of The Only Way is Essex, Made in Chelsea, or whatever else of a similar nature.
Indeed, with the marriage of “The Harry formerly known as Prince” and “the Royal Mulatta” (Harry and Meghan of that ilk), the two previously acquainted but once very different worlds of British Monarchy and “celebrity culture” have collided, with disastrous results, even so far.
As I have blogged on one or two previous occasions, it is not only the British population that has changed; so have “the royals”.
Whatever one may have thought of the late Queen and Prince Philip, they were traditionally and unmistakeably royal. They could never have been mistaken for “the common people”, not even the most ultra-wealthy “commoners”. They would certainly never have been mistaken for members of the suburban middle classes, or the working class or classes.
It can be seen that that unmistakeable “royality” slid somewhat in the generation of Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. The younger two, Andrew and Edward (born 1960 and 1964), in particular, might be considered similar, at least in some respects, to their neighbours in suburban or semi-rural Surrey or Berkshire. Think of Andrew and “Fergie”, living in their sprawling villa, the so-called “South York”; Edward wanting to run a theatre company; Edward’s wife carrying on (until it became an embarrassment) with her public relations enterprise.
Of course, there have been many other scandals and, most recently, the scurrilous rumours about the next generation, mostly about Prince William.
While the Andrew/Edward generation could be said to be not far, in terms of lifestyle, from the very wealthy of the Home Counties, the William and Harry generation are not so far in attitude and lifestyle from quite ordinary, albeit very wealthy, commoners of their own age. If “Fergie’s” parents were an Army major and a mother, as “Fergie” has said, “from country gentry with a bit of old money“, Kate Middleton’s parents’ origins are that the father, though from a wealthy background (and later wealthy in his own right, via business), worked as a flight dispatcher, while Kate’s mother had been an air hostess.
Subtle differences but, over three generations making, overall, a big difference.
So now we have King Charles III, whom I regard as a basically well-meaning but also incredibly self-absorbed person who is more “at sea” ideologically and/or intellectually than most people think; perhaps more than he himself thinks.
Regular readers of the blog may recall that I blogged once or twice about how I met with and very briefly (a few minutes) talked with the then Prince Charles in late 1996, when I was invited to a royal reception (about 25-30 people) held at the official Residence (not the Embassy) of the British Ambassador in Almaty, then the capital of Kazakhstan.
The new King is 73, and will be 74 in November.
As for the next generation, I once described Princes William and Harry as “tame thick princelings“, signed up to what people now call a “woke” agenda, and I see no reason, several years on, to change that view.
The late Queen was an anchoring presence, not only in what she did but in what she was.
Without necessarily endorsing the following view, it can be said that Queen Elizabeth personified the idea that a monarch, at best, holds a nation together. Britain’s problem now is that it is rapidly ceasing to actually be a nation. It is more like a geographical space within which reside a number of interpenetrating racial, national, social and economic, and ideological, tribes, many of which dislike, or even despise and hate, each other.
I saw this very worthy historical blog and travelogue about the Thames, “that silver thread that runs through England’s history” as someone may have called it (Churchill called it “the golden thread through our nation’s tapestry“): https://thames.me.uk/Thames1891.htm.
Interesting, I think, not only for those who, like me, spent some of their young teenage years rowing on it.
“Professor” Uju Anya? What is wrong in American academia that a ridiculous monkey like that gets and/or keeps such a position?
American academia is very sick, largely because of this sort of nonsense. The usual suspects (((them))) are behind much of it, pulling the strings. The black “academics” (usually retailing pseudo-academic nonsense) are, to a great extent, just the puppets.
Unless America can recover its ethnic white European identity, it is doomed. There needs to be a reset of the white/non-white population-proportion in the USA, getting back to the ~90% white America of the 1920s.
Apart from which, there are times when a decent reserve is the right persona, and when nasty and tasteless jeering is not the right persona.
For me, the main point is that the tasteless minority pretending to celebrate the death of the late Queen (and a few even hoping, on Twitter etc, that that death was painful) are not only celebrating the death of Elizabeth II, but are also —and in fact primarily— making a truly evil attack on the British people, on our history, on our now-disappeared Empire, on our culture, on our (and all European) culture, and on the overall European way of life. That is why they should all be deported, exiled, or eliminated.

…and despite that, Jew-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his deputy, thick-as-two-short-planks Angela Rayner went down on their knees in fealty to the “BLM” “Black Lives Matter” idiocy, as did many others, including members of this country’s police, while on duty at that.
That, of course, was before the transnational conspiracy put up other idols for the unthinking to worship: first the “Covid” “panicdemic”/”scamdemic”, and now the present nonsense about Britain’s (non-existent) “need” to “support” the Jew dictator Zelensky and his corrupt and antidemocratic cabal in Ukraine.
The tweets and retweets of the tweeter @DwayneDavidPaul (click below) are instructive. Monkeys like that can only just about live, parasitically, in a civilized society or culture; they could never create one, not in a million years:
The limited Kiev-regime counter-offensive in the south of Ukraine (Kherson area) was joined by another limited counter-offensive in the north-east, in the Kharkov area. Now, however, Russian missile strikes have hit a number of cities.
If accurate (the tweeters plainly both being pro the Kiev regime), the tweet immediately below shows a situation not good for the Russian side:
As for the tweet immediately below here, its judgment would be more convincing had the Kiev regime not been shelling and rocketing the population of parts of the Donbass for about 8 years…
If Russian forces are seriously pushed back on a consistent basis, and if the outcome of this war is in the balance, we can expect to see a massive escalation of force from the Russian side.

I was unaware of that (that it was in Hitchens’ book).
As blogged many times, Ukraine is a new-ish state (1990s), a failed state, and a shambolic kleptocracy run by a pack of Jew billionaires (like Zelensky, who owns several luxury homes including one in Florida worth USD $40 million).
The Zelensky regime shoots its opponents both in secret and in the street, has banned opposition parties, banned trade unions, and arrested prominent opposition politicians.
Liz Truss wants to waste many billions more of UK taxpayers’ money on the criminal Kiev regime, as did “Boris”-idiot.
A commentator on the blog reminded me of the clip below, not seen for a long time:
I still think that the most telling thing about Greta Thunberg is how the decadent mainstream media, politicians etc at least pretend to take this uneducated and afflicted girl (now 19) as some kind of sage, when actually she has nothing to offer. It says something about the world we are in today.
“Jack” Monroe, the “Bootstrap Cook”; some thoughts about “poverty”
I thought that it was worth reposting those tweets, which refer to the Twitter storm around “Jack” Monroe, aka “Bootstrap Cook” (mentioned in yesterday’s blog).
I have no particular animus against “Bootstrap Cook”, and I should imagine that many find her recipes and other advice very useful [see https://cookingonabootstrap.com/category/recipes-food/], but it is clear that she herself is not (now) in what most people would regard as poverty.
Was I myself “in poverty” when I returned to London? It certainly seemed so!
Think living in a single room in a flat (provided by a friend of a friend— eventually, and very belatedly, months later, paid for by Housing Benefit). Think living largely off tiny State benefit for 3-4 months (monies also delayed for weeks). Think having to be a little bit “creative” in finding ways to travel around London, and equally “creative” in finding out how to increase supply of food and reading material (mainly books).
Yet only a few years before, I had quite often been paid, as Counsel, £1,000 or more for often quite brief (less than half a day) appearances in the High Court or elsewhere.
Later, living in the former Soviet Union in 1996-97, my home was a kind of large penthouse with a very wide wraparound balcony, I had a former MVD car and driver to ferry me to my office etc, a Rolex Seadweller on my wrist, and I rarely carried less than USD $5,000 on my person.
Incidentally, barristers reading this might sneer at the modesty of those High Court fees (perhaps a tenth or a twentieth of the fees some now get and even back then received), but this was 1993-95, nearly 30 years ago, and I was only just out of pupillage (on-the-job training). Anyway, it seemed good at the time to me.
What those born into wealth usually fail to know, having never experienced it, is how quickly a comfortable lifestyle can disappear, without personal capital or family money as a safety net.
When I was living on pennies —and my wits— in the London of March-June 1998, I often walked past Julie’s restaurant in Notting Hill, a restaurant patronized by film stars and other “celebrities”, and a place which I had previously visited several times, only 2-3 years before, and arriving in a large white Mercedes (a girlfriend’s car).
Maybe 3 years later, in 1998, I would have been unable to buy a coffee in the same restaurant, and I wondered whether those staring out of the windows could perceive somehow just how poor I was (maybe a subjective and resentful thought: after all, the Rolex may have gone, but I was still clad in an Austin Reed overcoat and Dents leather gloves etc).
There is no need for me to say more about that very pinched time in my life. Adolf Hitler had it worse, in the Vienna of 1909-1912. Eventually, my several months of poverty came to an end and then, less than a year after I had returned penniless to London, I was spending time living in a villa in the Caribbean, with a private beach (in effect), though those sometimes pleasant months sadly did not become sybaritic years (though I did spend much of 1999 in and around the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico— several Caribbean islands, and the Gulf Coast of Florida).
I later had more ups and downs, but that is enough for today.
I do not know a great deal in detail about “Jack” Monroe, the Bootstrap Cook, but I would guess that she knows a lot about “precarious” life in the Britain of today. Occasional poverty, occasional plenty, but not much security either way.
Many many people in Britain in 2022 are part of that “precariat”. This has political implications. Labour was the party of the industrial “proletariat”, mainly, a class which is now all but non-existent. “Bootstrap Cook”, leaving aside her personal predilections, is in that sense far more typical of the masses than would be the Soviet-style miner, rail worker, or other member of the organized labour force, insofar as such people still exist in the UK.
If there were a credible social-national movement in the UK, the “Bootstrap Cook” would probably not support it, but the “precariat” in general would, especially as inflation, low pay, and low State benefits all start to bite.

Well, £600 is not a fortune for a watch these days (any of my one-time Rolex Seadwellers would be £10,000-£15,000 in 2022), but I take her point.
…on the other hand, Bootstrap Cook is, after all, from Essex, the home of “bling”…
Meanwhile, though the @norfolkchatter1 Twitter account has disappeared, the storm around the Bootstrap Cook has, if anything, intensified, with many Twit-people (including the terminally “woke”) supporting her, but also with many others either criticizing her or demanding to know exactly how much capital or income she really has at her disposal, and asking whether she is exploiting people who donate to her when they really cannot afford to do so.
[Incidentally, I do not know anyone involved in either of the two GoFundMe appeals above; I just happened to see them].

Sometimes I wonder what, WHAT, would make the mass of British people wake up to the “panicdemic”, the nonsense measures such as facemask-wearing that were part of the scam, or to the “support Ukraine” propaganda or, as in that tweet, the very real dangers of the “Covid” “vaccines”, but I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that nothing, nothing at all, will awaken the masses. A “victory” by a football team, or whatever absolute shite is on “reality” (unreality) TV that week, and the real and important issues are forgotten again.
Maybe after the nuclear war with Russia that so many have been brainwashed into (as they imagine) wanting to see, the survivors will see their reality more clearly.
First of all, though, we must examine said loonie.
Wikipedia says nothing about the parentage or family origins of Wallis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Wallis. All that we know of his early life is that he attended a Roman Catholic school, followed by a comprehensive school at Bridgend (Wales).
Wallis was awarded a degree in chemistry from Oxford, followed by a doctorate in astrobiology from Cardiff University. The usual Oxford chemistry degree follows a 4-year course, not 3 years, and confers a master’s degree (M.Chem.).
Wallis was involved with a number of sleazy and dishonest trading activities both before and during his time as MP.
When Wallis realized that the game was up in various ways, he cashed in on the “trans” aspect, which led to “Boris”-idiot and other MPs “supporting” him, despite the probable falsity of his claims to have been raped, and to have suffered consequent post-traumatic stress disorder etc.
Anything “trans” or LGBTQXYZ seems, these days, to be the last refuge of the scoundrel, triggering an avalanche of virtue-signalling.
Needless to say, an honourable MP would by now have resigned, on several different grounds, but this moneygrubbing Wallis individual has not done so; I doubt that he/she/it will do.
Having said that, I very much doubt that Wallis will remain as MP for very long, even if not deselected.
Turning now to more general thoughts around the case of Wallis, I was just looking at the more recent general election results for Bridgend, which is a large town in South Wales: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgend.
Bridgend constituency was created in 1983. That year, the Conservative Party won it, but Labour won the seat in the subsequent 8 general elections. Wallis was elected in 2019.
For me, there are pointers here that go beyond this very sleazy MP, and beyond Bridgend.
Wallis will not be re-elected whatever the label he adopts at the next general election. It may be that Labour will recapture the seat. However, it can be seen that Bridgend’s support for Labour has —with a brief upsurge when Corbyn was newly-adopted as leader— slowly waned over the years.
I think that that is true over large swathes of England and Wales. Voters are turning off from both main System parties, but the Conservative Party roots are now basically stronger in its heartlands than Labour roots now are in its.
The Labour Party is just not capturing the loyalty, or even the casual interest, of most voters.
What part of “Boris was a major part of the scamdemic repression” does tweeter “@BenIrvineAuthor” not understand? Boris-idiot was not some political hero captured by evil forces (as in the Trump/QAnon fantasy conspiracies) but a willing and enthusiastic collaborator with them.
Even I was (very briefly) taken in by the “scamdemic” propaganda, for a week or two.
That doctor, a psychiatrist (wouldn’t you know— a living caricature) seems to have his own mental problems, judging by a few tweets seen from time to time. Still, perhaps he has his points; I try not to judge others as unfairly as some judge me.
Exactly. Only one thing deals with these charlatans properly.
Perhaps someone will watch the accession ceremonies from the Grassy Knoll. Oh no..wait…
Rwanda has done its bit for “Conservative” empty rhetoric on migration invasion; it can now depart, like Othello.
I suppose that some tiny version of the Rwanda policy might be kept going as a meaningless talking-point between “refugees welcome” dimwits and the equally dim “Priti and Boris want to stop immigration—yay!” idiots. Priti Patel and “Boris” have no intention of stopping, or even seriously trying to stop either mass immigration generally or the cross-Channel migration-invasion.
Incidentally, and as I suggested yesterday in response to commentators on the blog, it occurs to me that the “Mo Farah was a trafficked illegal immigrant” story may be just another way of promoting the idea that illegal immigration is not really a problem for the UK (or Europe generally).
You can just hear the idiots saying “well, after all, Mo Farah was an illegal immigrant and look what he has done“. Actually, what has he done? Made a lot of money out of his success in athletics, married an Englishwoman, had several children with her etc: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mo_Farah
…and two of the others are a Jew (Shapps) and a part-Jew (Tugendhat). It seems that only 3 out of the 10 so far declared are actually white, actually English/real British: Penny Mordaunt, Jeremy Hunt, Liz Truss. If Priti Patel also declares, that will be 3 out of 11 candidates.
Not a race war as such, or simplistically, but a race and culture war.
The Israeli agent (at least agent of influence), Priti Patel, who (incredibly) made it to the rank of Cabinet Minister despite being Indian (via East Africa), thick as two short planks, and thoroughly dishonest (as well as no good at her job), has pulled out of the Conservative Party leadership contest. Good riddance.
Same goes for Jew-Zionist business trickster Grant Shapps, who has also given up his doomed bid to head the “Con” Party.
What huge lack of confidence British people now have as a people. Oh, no, we could never have a health service without immigrants, never have a police service, never have a…pizza delivery service…
“Wait a moment!” We (Brits) did manage to invent or discover about 80% of everything, though (and if you include Germany and France, almost 100%); oh, and we did create the largest empire ever known (at peak, between 1918 and 1939, nearly a third of the Earth).
The enzyme for degradation, degeneration etc is usually the (((you know who)))…
No comment, or at least [see below]
I once, aged about 12, had a copy of the Agatha Christie book with its original title, Ten Little Niggers. That “had to be” changed, some years later, I think in the 1980s, to Ten Little Indians, until even that became contentious; it is now republished as And Then There Were None.
I suppose that the Conservative Party equivalent will be And Then There Was One (Idiot), just as in 2019.
It may be, with Hunt having a Chinese wife, that he is inured to the very authoritarian ways of Chinese government.
Ah. Andrew Bowie MP, a Conservative Party cretin so far never seen nor heard of by me. His educational background [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Bowie_(politician)] obviously flatters him. Ex-Royal Navy. Strange views. He even thinks that having Jamie Wallace on board the good ship Con-Party is a positive factor.
Is it true? I did suspect as much at the time. The “panicdemic” was, to a large extent, a “scamdemic”.
More on the pathology of the facemask nonsense
I have blogged a few times recently of the survival of the facemask nonsense among the more feeble-minded of our citizens.
Today, I went early to a routine appointment at the local hospital, a small, architecturally-pleasing place, with a very green and treed car park, and a building designed to allow hundreds of birds to live among specially-designed rocks, covering the exterior (and held in by a kind of metal mesh). The birdsong was very loud, almost overwhelming, but beautiful.
I marched in unmasked, and to my surprise was not greeted (as on a previous and recent visit) by a proffered facemask and a prim, “this is a hospital” (Oh, really? I thought that it was a Cuban piano bar…).
At the appointed department, a nervous-looking lady waited, unmasked, and reading a magazine. As I sat down at the other side of the waiting area, she picked up and donned her thick cloth facemask! At that point, the nurse or technician came to the waiting area and called that lady’s name.
As they exited, the patient said (for my ears?) “are masks still compulsory in the hospital?“, to which the nurse said “no, not any more. The policy has been changed.” Shocked silence. The nurse then continued, “but you can wear a mask if you want“, to which the lady quickly replied “ooh, well, I would be glad to wear it if you like“, obviously gagging to be effectively told to continue to wear the mask.
In one small incident there, you see the pathology of the facemask nonsense: the wish to be regulated and controlled, the virtue-signalling, the censorious attitude to facemask non-wearers, and the wish to have them controlled. The pathetic grovelling to authority was patent.
There is a small minority of nutty people to whom the facemask nonsense has given a kind of spurious self-identity. I saw another one a couple of days ago; a cyclist, in the open air, riding along an empty road, while wearing one of those thick black wraparound cloth facemasks seen on Boris-idiot and Starmer.
“Against stupidity, the Gods themselves struggle in vain” [Schiller, Die Jungfrau von Orleans].

Just saw today photos of the Luxor Hilton, several miles from Luxor itself. When I first visited Egypt, I think in 1994, I stayed there. Unlike most Hilton hotels, quite low-level (4-storey).
The real core vote for both of the main System parties is around 25% of that part of the eligible electorate that actually bothers to vote. The aim, for both parties, is to get another bloc of voters, between 10%-20% of that whole, to bring their actual vote to between 35% and 45%, and so probably achieve a Commons majority via FPTP.
Both main System parties now have a further aim— to prevent their core vote from dwindling at a time when the voters either hate them or despise them, as well as seeing them as useless.
It was obvious to me almost from the start (about 2 weeks after the first fear-propaganda appeared) that “Covid” was not the deadly plague it was sold as, but the mass of plebs did not wake up until recently; in fact, many have still not woken up fully.
As for Boris-idiot and his pack, their behaviour makes it clear that they had little or no fear of “the virus”, and rightly so. What makes their behaviour so bad is that they colluded in the “panicdemic” scam and, indeed, threw fuel onto its pyre.

The Ukraine (Russia v. Jew-Zionist Kiev regime) war has been largely a propaganda war, and the Zelensky Kiev-regime side has been far more skilled in that than have been the Russians. However, in the real war, the Russians still have the edge.
The members of the present House of Commons must be punished by the people themselves, directly.
Well worth reading, especially by MPs, especially by Conservative Party and (Starmer-) Labour Party MPs.
The photo shows, I think, the inspection carried out later (in 1943) by the German forces that had invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, and so also the part of Poland taken by Soviet invaders in 1939. Some international experts from Switzerland and Hungary took part in the exhumation.
The massacre itself was carried out by the Soviet NKVD in 1940.
“At the beginning of 1944, Ron Jeffery, an agent of British and Polish intelligence in occupied Poland, eluded the Abwehr and travelled to London with a report from Poland to the British government. His efforts were at first highly regarded, but subsequently ignored, which a disillusioned Jeffery later attributed to the actions of Kim Philby and other high-ranking communist agents entrenched in the British government. Jeffery tried to inform the British government about the Katyn massacre, but was as a result released from the Army.
In 1947, the Polish Government in exile 1944–1946 report on Katyn was transmitted to Telford Taylor.
In the United States a similar line was taken, notwithstanding two official intelligence reports into the Katyn massacre that contradicted the official position. In 1944, Roosevelt assigned his special emissary to the Balkans, Navy Lieutenant Commander George Earle, to produce a report on Katyn. Earle concluded the massacre was committed by the Soviet Union. Having consulted with Elmer Davis, director of the United States Office of War Information, Roosevelt rejected the conclusion (officially), declared he was convinced of Nazi Germany’s responsibility, and ordered that Earle’s report be suppressed. When Earle requested permission to publish his findings, the President issued a written order to desist. Earle was reassigned and spent the rest of the war in American Samoa.” [Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre].
As blogged a day or two ago, Soviet agents, pro-Soviet “useful idiots”, and/or Jews, were trying, as late as the early 1980s, to pin the guilt for the Soviet massacre at Katyn on the forces of the Reich.
Mirabile dictu! At last, Boris-idiot’s government may be doing something which which I may be able to agree, depending on the detail. Much later, perhaps, we may be able to remove millions of others from the UK to Rwanda or other such countries. They would be more suited to life outside Europe.
It might just save our country’s socio-ethno-racial future.
Whatever one may think of the present shambolic UK government, if the proposed scheme gets going on a large-enough scale, that will cook Labour’s goose for good, I should think.
The area now known as “Ukraine” has of course a history which includes being part of the Khazarian empire:
You can see now why Ukraine is vital to the plans of NWO/ZOG. That is why, despite the alleged war crimes, despite the terrible destruction and harm being done, Russia must fight on to topple the Zelensky regime.

Terrible losses, assuming that the figures are accurate. Tanks lost are about 5% of all tanks operational in the whole of Russia; as for the soldiers, though, no more than 2% of the overall active strength. Very bad losses, all the same.
I saw recently that Graham Linehan, the former scriptwriter, was feeling sorry for himself because “trans” fanatics had had him “cancelled”, and because his wife left him, it seems, once he had little money or income left.
What to say when you dislike both sides of a conflict?
I have blogged before about both Linehan and the “trans” nonsense which seems inescapable in the UK of 2022:
As a matter of fact, I had never heard of Linehan until he was scathing about me on Twitter several years ago. I had only vaguely heard of Father Ted, and certainly never seen it.
I have to say that his present troubles could not have happened to a more appropriate person; I see that quite a few Daily Mail readers seem to agree with me. I do not agree with the Daily Mail scribbler who refers to him as “this decent man“, even though I agree with Linehan about the “trans” nonsense and associated lunacy.
In the American phrase, “what goes around comes around“…
A few other self-appointed enemies should muse on that.

What makes “EternalEnglish” so sure that a world (nuclear) war will not happen? I am beginning to think it quite likely, the way that NWO/ZOG is pushing Putin.
Where there is a keg of gunpowder, a single spark can cause a mighty conflagration (to recycle Lenin’s well-known words).
The Western world has been plunged into multiform lunacy.
Yes, Twitter and those behind it have made their point— you exist on Twitter (Facebook, Instagram etc) at their convenience and command. One “wrong” tweet or message and BANG, you’re gone.
Even people basically on the right path do not see that they are being played and used in a bigger game.
Fascinating to trawl back through Twitter, in that you see people tweeting this week the same sort of stuff, indeed often exactly the same stuff, that they were tweeting 4+ years ago. Pathetic. Pointless.
Saw one of my own comments, but on the GAB system, from nearly 4 years ago, from when (in mid-2018) I was expelled from Twitter at the instigation of a pack of Jew Zionists. Most of my tweets are now unavailable, but a few were copied and reposted, either by supporters or enemies, and so are still available, as are a few old GAB remarks (I do not bother with GAB now, nor with other social media platforms).
Still seems very arguable to me.
Ha ha! Below, another of my old tweets, reposted by some idiot angry that the Guardian scribbler Martin Belam used it in his semi-obit. piece about deceased and once-famous actor, Peter Wyngarde:
Interesting to see, now again reading that Guardian article online, that my above tweet and also a few others are now just blank spaces. Testament to the ever-intensifying censorship on Twitter.
Incidentally, I see from those old tweets about me, that yet another person who declared war on me (online) seems to have died (at least his Twitter account trailed off over 18 months ago, though only just now noticed by me).
That has happened to rather many Twitter twits, most of whom were just “me too” pile-on idiots who neither had had any direct contact with me at all, nor thought to behave decently, or just politely, in tweeting to, or about, me. Good riddance to them all.
In fact, at present a few other long-term, malicious, and venomous anti-Millard tweeters are presently in very poor conditions of health (which came upon them suddenly, it seems), and may not be around for much longer. As the Chinese proverb has it, “the stars in their courses fight on the side of the just“…
Putting it more lightly, #TenGreenBottles…

Meanwhile, the sinister part-Jew clown posing as Prime Minister stokes up conflict with Russia so that he can play the Poundland Churchill. The real Churchill was partly responsible for the start, and certainly for the continuing after 1940, of WW2. Will the “second time as farce” Churchill am-dram copyist, “Boris”, trigger WW3? If so, “goodbye England”…
I doubt that most French voters really know Macron’s full political and career background, in particular the Jewish cabal that has always pushed and promoted him.

The holy multikulti society programme must never be challenged. That’s why it happened as it did.
Exactly. There are supposed to have been nearly five million “cases” in the UK last week alone! Hardly anyone even felt unwell. The whole Covid scam “panicdemic” train has hit the buffers now. It has just become completely and hilariously nonsensical.
The social, medical, and economic results are, however, not at all funny.
Were I a dictator in power, I would hang Professor Ferguson, and some others, high high high…
…and if anyone gets angry at the MP-parasites, and so much as emails them to express that, the toytown police are at the door in a flash…So much for our “democratic” “freedoms”…
As frequently expressed previously, Russia should have been able to seize the most important parts of Ukraine swiftly, efficiently, and without massive damage or loss of life. Sadly, that failed miserably. Russia now has to fight for its own very future down the line.
The Ukraine invasion has become the Ukraine war. It is a ghastly bloody mess. I hate what has happened, and feel very sorry for those suffering, but Russia must now fight on, and win the eastern and southern parts of the country, come what may.
Putin must call up the three million reserve troops Russia has, and then just steamroller the Kiev regime.
As I have blogged several times, the Russians could have taken Kiev, Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and the Black Sea littoral, with a kind of “Blitzkrieg” combined with special forces operations, accomplished that (and the elimination of the Jewish regime in Kiev) in a few days, and without much harm or panic caused to the civilian population.
Sadly, that did not happen, and the whole invasion has become a bloody mess. The Russian Army and General Staff is culpable.
Having said the above, I see that the Russians are following the same basic strategy that I outlined weeks ago, not bothering so far to do much in the western two-thirds of the country, at least not in areas very far beyond the Black Sea.
As I flagged up some days ago (only now starting to be mentioned in the UK msm), the Ukrainians in the contested areas are starting to run out of food, fuel, possibly ammunition, and in some areas even water.
This is now a depressingly-bloody and sad war of attrition, which Russia is very slowly winning. The major cities, except Lvov, are almost certain to fall to Russian control. The population remaining will be sullen, unco-operative and, more or less, prisoners. How far beyond that they will go (to actual armed resistance), once Russian rule is dug in, is uncertain.
The Russians may allow, or even encourage, Ukrainian civilians in the Russian-controlled areas to leave and go as refugees to the western parts of the Ukraine, or via there to neighbouring countries. If that happens, the Russians will have got rid of people probably hostile to them, people who need to be fed etc; that would also place a greater burden on the Kiev regime (as long as it remains active) and on the EU states bordering Ukraine.
Hard to watch the superficially-kind but actually propagandistic (and contrary to international convention) treatment of a captured Russian soldier. Yes, he was given tea, but the Ukrainian soldiers or militia fighters in the crowd looked savagely exultant. Hope he survives and is not ill-treated. The telephone call to the boy’s mother in Russia was obviously designed to put pressure on her and the Russian population and government.
“Commanders of Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces warned they would no longer take Russian artillerymen as prisoner of war in response to their ‘brutal shelling’ of cities – a move which would be a war crime.
‘Each and every gun crew… will be slaughtered like pigs,’ a statement on their Facebook page on Wednesday evening said.” [Daily Mail].
“Each action posits an equal and opposite reaction”, so I dare say that the Russians will also soon stop taking prisoners, at least any thought to belong to irregular forces, including any “volunteers”, adventurers, or freebooters from Western countries.
I do not know why the Russians have failed to kill or capture Zelensky and his cabal. That should have been top priority. If it was, and yet failed, it argues again that both the GRU and Russian Army need thorough reform, once this is all over.
In the UK, the msm has whipped up a kind of “let’s bomb Russia even if it means nuclear war” madness.
Were I ensconced in a castle in the South West of the UK, together with loyal followers, I might be more sanguine, in that, after massive destruction, we could take over the UK, eliminate surviving enemies, and create a new social-national society.
However, as it is, that is little more than a pipe-dream. I do not want my (still, at least partly) “green and pleasant land” to be hit by waves of nuclear weapons-caused destruction.
The Great Replacement. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.
Invasions can take a number of different forms…
As I began to notice a while ago, the “panicdemic” propaganda has ebbed away, to be replaced by “kill Putin and evil Russia” propaganda. In fact, the same major msm liars are already heavily on the case, well-paid propaganda idiots such as Piers Morgan and the various sofa-sitting talking heads on “British” TV.
At least Greta Nut has disappeared for a while. Be grateful for small mercies.
Hard to believe that large parts of the UK public are willing to take their news and views from horrible little blots like that. Still, there it is…
Oh, yes, the “free-speech ethos” that had me expelled from Twitter in 2018 at the instigation of a pack of conspiratorial Jews.
They left out “Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Japan etc 1941-45“.
“The place where Europe began: Spiral cities built on remote Russian plains by swastika-painting Aryans”
“Desolate: The Bronze Age cities were built some 4,000 years ago by the Aryans in a 400 miles long region of the Russian Steppe.”
The Aryans’ language has been identified as the precursor to a number of modern European tongues. English uses many similar words such as brother, oxen and guest which have all been tracked to the Aryans.” [Daily Mail report]
‘These ancient Indian texts and hymns describe sacrifices of horses and burials and the way the meat is cut off and the way the horse is buried with its master. If you match this with the way the skeletons and the graves are being dug up in Russia [on the border of Siberia and Kazakhstan], they are a millimetre-perfect match.’”
[Bettany Hughes, TV historian, in UK Daily Mail].
The foundations of modern Europe lie with the Aryans and their post-Atlantean, post-Aryan descendants:
The future of Russia and the future of Europe lies with Aryans, or rather post-Aryans, and with a super-race which does not yet exist.
Long live, er, freedom…
Russia has to secure at least its major objectives (Kiev, Black Sea coast, east-of-Dnieper Ukraine) quickly, before those weapons are deployed.
A horrible and bitter end, but Russia now has no choice, from where it now is, leaving aside blame for how things have turned out.
One of many tweeters prematurely hailing a Kiev-regime victory. The game is not yet at an end. Russia is what the mediaeval ages called “investing” (besieging) most of the major cities of Ukraine. The tactics also are those of the Middle Ages— starvation and bombardment.
How long can those cities hold out without food, or perhaps without water and electricity? I feel sorry for those civilians trapped therein. Old people, unwell people, companion animals too. It should not have happened in this way, and the Jew-Zionist-controlled msm in the West has used these circumstances to demonize Russia, because of the human and animal cost of all of this.
I think that Russia can still achieve its strategic objectives in the east and south. That leaves the approximately two-thirds of the country to the west of the Dnieper and to the north of the Black Sea littoral. That rump of Ukrainian territory would have been of only limited importance, but now will be of major importance because of the arms flooding in from the West. It may be that, before too long, the destruction of locations in the west of Ukraine will more than equal that happening at present elsewhere.
…and “refugees welcome” dimwits want more of these bastards to come here…
Surely calling those idiots “intellectuals” is a little too kind? That horrible little blot, Harwood, was recently sharing, on Twitter, his revelation that Italy, on a map, looks like a boot!
Almost as good as the “advice” given to the British public in the 1980s by constipated civil servants, to the effect that, in the event of nuclear attack, British people should shelter under a stout table, “protected” by a tablecloth or blanket, and should not forget to keep safe their pension books and bank documents!
As previously blogged, the aim in the medium-term is to get as many people as possible microchipped, probably on the arm or wrist, and get them using that system for all everyday uses: NHS, shopping, travel. Those refusing will be gradually marginalized and, ultimately, probably, detained indefinitely.
Only extreme resistance now, or soon, will prevent this in Western and Central Europe, North America, Australasia, and elsewhere.
As a control mechanism, “the virus” has done most of its job. The majority of the (eg) British population have been proven to be sheep, easily corralled and controlled; in effect, brainwashed. The facemask nonsense was key in doing that.
Of course, a properly-run society would properly punish the likes of Professor Ferguson (or, indeed, laugh at him from the start, and certainly not take him seriously).
Stray thoughts about the increasingly acrid Ukraine situation
Had the Russian forces mounted a properly-planned Blitzkrieg from the start, and thus achieved their main strategic objectives within days, toppling the Jew-Zionist Kiev regime and installing a puppet government de facto over the Kiev region, over that part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and over the Black Sea littoral, there would have been no time for the creation of a civilian resistance, and no time for the NWO/ZOG powers of the EU, UK, and North America to respond effectively. Also, the Ukrainian civilians would not have suffered harm, certainly not on the scale that looks likely now.
In the ancient cult of Magna Mater, the candidates for initiation had at one point to wade through a literal bath of blood. Metaphorically, that is where Putin and the Russian forces now are.
Unless they are going to abandon the operation completely, which would not only be humiliating for Putin personally but disastrous for Russia strategically, they have to press on to victory, even though any victory now will be horrible and bitter.
NATO, the EU, even usually-neutral Sweden, and others, are funnelling serious armament into Ukraine now. It will be placed at the disposal of the Kiev regime.
The ground-to-air armament flooding in may deny Russia command of the skies before very long. Even now, Russia’s air force does not seem to be being used as effectively as it could be, and certainly not as ruthlessly as the Americans use theirs.
This situation can only worsen for Russia over time. The only answer will be for Russia to destroy the Kiev regime very soon, whatever it takes. The key players have to be captured or eliminated.
I tremble for the remaining civilian population of Ukraine (and their companion animals). This should never have happened, certainly not in this way.
Supplies of food and fuel must be running out in Kiev. The odds are still in favour of the Russian invaders, if they press forward.
The Russian Army has been hugely upgraded over the past 15 years, but has shown itself incapable of proper staff work and planning. It dithered for weeks (that may have been Putin’s fault), then launched an unimpressive, sluggish and “bitty” invasion that seems to have lacked elan and rigour.
In a way, this incipient debacle is reminiscent of what happened in Karelia in 1939-40.
Stalin would have been shooting generals by now. Putin cannot do that, but he has to reinvigorate this operation before it becomes a manifest and historic defeat.
How is it that a country with (one reads) 4,500 fighter aircraft cannot dominate the skies of one that has fewer than 100?
If Putin and his generals do nothing, or if they withdraw behind Russia’s frontiers, The Kiev regime will be resupplied, its forces upgraded (all paid for by NWO/ZOG states), and before long there will be NATO or NATO-proxy forces stationed only 300 miles from Moscow (Moscow is 300 miles from the Ukrainian border at the nearest point).
The logic of the above is that the Kiev regime must now be toppled by massive force, even though a victory bought at such a price in destruction and suffering could not be other than bitter and even sickening.
Ukraine— possible developments
What if Russian forces manage to control the whole area east of the Dnieper, as well as the Kiev area and the Black Sea coast? What then?
If there is a relocation of the Kiev regime to Lvov, with control over the western part of Ukraine, then NATO and the EU will flood it with arms and training staff. Russia, and Putin especially, would then have the choice of coming to some accommodation with that government, or fighting it. The Western allies would presumably keep referring to it as the Government of Ukraine de jure, even if the Russians install a Ukraine government, de facto, in Kiev.
In fact, both such regimes would only, de facto, control about half of of the whole country. Both would be supported as “de jure” governments of the whole by, and only by, their individual patron-states.
It is hard to see any such Lvov regime accepting Russian rule over a third to a half of present Ukraine, and including Kiev. On the other hand, and on present evidence, the Russian forces would seem incapable of taking the whole country, let alone holding it.
It is easy for many to talk about Ukraine as if it is smaller than it is, but Ukraine is about the same size as France. Huge. Nearly three times the size of the whole UK.
As for Kiev, with its 3 million inhabitants, it is —depending on where administrative boundaries are drawn— about the 7th-largest city by population in Europe. Indeed, if one excludes Istanbul, Moscow, and St. Petersburg, the 4th-largest.
Of course, if one includes suburbs outside strict city limits, London and Paris have even larger populations, but that would still mean that Kiev would be the 5th-largest city in Europe (excl. cities in European Turkey and European Russia), after London, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin.
The international situation can only go down from here. On the periphery, biding its time, China…
Time to repost my blog thoughts about the potential necessity of founding a new civilization on the rubble of the old…

Analysis on video
This is basically correct.
As that person is saying, Russia is not, as yet anyway, flattening everything in Ukraine, whereas the American idea, seen repeatedly, is to flatten whole cities, regardless of civilian harm.
In any case, Putin does not want to take over a flattened wasteland.The way things are going, though, he may have little choice.
Again, the cold logic seems to lead to a massive attack on the locations of the Kiev regime itself, i.e. on central Kiev, with the aim of decapitating the present government and thus starting to end any mass resistance.
