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), 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!

Twitter anonymity

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.

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.

Ha ha! Laurels and oak leaves.

I have blogged about Greta Nut previously: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/

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.

If I had to name one single person who personifies almost everything nasty and disgusting about the British society of, say, 1975-2020, it would have to be Branson.

Diary Blog, 30 November 2020, including Brexit, Scottish independence, and business predators

A pretty good graphic, though designed for American conditions of society rather than British/European.

Philip Green

The Jew business predator, Philip Green, was discussed on BBC Radio 4 Today. Lord Myners [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Myners,_Baron_Myners] said that Green is “what in the 1970s we called a asset-stripper“, who has never built up or created a brand, but, “highly-geared” (i.e. swimming in debt), bought businesses and then “ran them into the ground.”

Any decent country would hold Green upside down and shake him until all the gold fell out of his pockets. His catspaw, Chappell, is sitting in prison for a few years now [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_Chappell] but Green himself has, it seems, still hundreds if not thousands of millions of pounds (largely in the name of his wife), and several megayachts based in Monaco.

It may be (and Lord Myners mentioned the problem, though diplomatically) that Green may have, in effect, defrauded the pensioners who worked in the Arcadia Group companies, just as the Jew [called] “Robert Maxwell” did in respect of Daily Mirror pensioners. Maxwell, of course, has long ago gone up the chimney, and his daughter, the one-time chief “ho” of the Jew paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is in prison in New York and awaiting trial.

When will people wake up to the fact that in —at least— (((one))) way, “Hitler was right”?…

Speaking of (((predators))), remember Brooks Newmark [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooks_Newmark], the American Jew (Jew by birth, and so genetics, but now a Roman Catholic in terms of religious affiliation), who had to resign as MP after having been involved in sex scandals? Well, this is how he is now profiteering out of “the virus” and the NHS:

Brexit

I have favoured Leave or Brexit for at least 10 years, but realized years ago, at the time of and after the 2016 referendum, that not only was it being sabotaged in various ways, but simultaneously mismanaged by a number of incompetent “Conservative” ministers, among them several members of the present Cabinet of clowns.

It seems that the UK will (in reality) leave the EU soon. Plans seem not very advanced as to what will then happen and how to deal with it all.

The “virus”, or rather the measures employed in reaction to it, will add to any Brexit chaos. Whether there will be interruption of supply of food and/or medicines, is apparently up in the air.

“Coronavirus”

It seems that about 70,000 people are being infected with “the virus” daily in the UK, and about 1 person out of every 350 (known to be) infected is dying of or with it. Bearing in mind that only a fraction of actually infected people are known to be so infected, the real figure may be as low as one death per several thousand infectees.

Britain must open up again, get rid of all the interfering measures in place for months, and breathe free again. In particular, the facemask nonsense must be chucked in the bin.

Morning music

Scottish “independence”

As said on previous occasions, if the Scottish people want to separate from England and Wales (and Northern Ireland), well, fine.

It does, I admit, seem to me a strange idea of both “nationalism” and “independence” to remain under the wing (or thumb, or heel) of the EU, the international banks, NATO (probably), not to mention the Jewish-Zionist lobby (which plainly has its claws into Sturgeon and the SNP). Also, “nationalism” that encourages migration-invasion? The SNP minister now cracking down on free speech is a Pakistani. How does that work? Oh…I see. Said Pakistani has a Scottish accent, so he is more Scottish than am I, despite my Franco-Scottish surname and likely part-Scottish ancestry. Or so believes the SNP.

Of course, any departure from the Union would be the end for the Labour Party at Westminster. True, Labour only has 1 MP in a Scottish seat anyway, but if the SNP departs from Westminster, along with its 47 MPs, that leaves the Conservative Party all but unassailable at Westminster on present showing.

Scottish independence would remove any chance for Labour to form even a minority government at Westminster. The 47 SNP MPs,1 Scottish Labour MP and 4 Scottish LibDems, 52 in all, would not be available to form a coalition. Labour, on present showing, would be left with 225 Labour and Labour Co-op MPs, whereas the Conservatives would still have 358 MPs.

Even taking into account all the other non-Conservative Party MPs, that would still leave the Cons with a majority of something like 118, i.e. 38 more than at present. An even more firmly-embedded “elected dictatorship”.

The arithmetic is stark. The Labour Party could not even pretend to be a potential party of government.

On the above premises, Scottish “Independence” might not be completely unattractive to some of the Conservative Party…

As to the Scots themselves…

As Hitler said of the Weimar Republic Germans, “they want not only their daily bread but also their daily illusion“…

The facemask nonsense must be junked at once.

This is a doomed campaign by Hitchens. The idea that MPs will be frightened by the possible —but in most cases unlikely— loss of a Westminster seat one, two, three or four years down the line from now, is ridiculous. Some things can frighten MPs, but this is not one of them.

The flaw there is the conflation of “law” (or “laws”) with “the rule of law”. We are in a situation where (and it has happened gradually, over 10+ years) the UK Government has become less and less a government under law, and more and more just a regime laying down laws

Significant. In England, there is no credible choice to set against a bad joke government totally lacking in credibility, because Labour is even less credible than the Conservative Party, especially now that the Jewish lobby has retaken control.

Keir Starmer, whom I thought could at least put on a brave face of credibility or at least steadiness, has been photographed on his knees or knee, along with his deputy, the absurd Angela Rayner, making a show of their surrender to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense (System-controlled nonsense, though…). Starmer looks like a weak accomplice of all Government policy, so far. There’s nothing beyond the “I was the DPP” facade. Nothing.

In Scotland, it is slightly different. For me, Sturgeon and the SNP are faux-“nationalists”, but from the point of the Scottish voters, or at least about half of them, the SNP looks like a real alternative (even if it is not). The same applies to “Independence”. Don’t like Boris-idiot, or fake “Labour”? Well, vote SNP and vote for “Independence”…

Exactly. The police are still around, and are actually quite good at tracking down murderers etc. However, the police fall down when it comes to “small” robberies, burglaries, car crime, anti-social behaviour, and other mattersof more concern to most inhabitants of these islands. Also, of course, any crime likely to result in black riots “has to be” handled with velvet gloves .

At the same time, the police are really energetic, given their head, in acting like a toytown militia, preventing ordinary citizens from doing harmless and normal things. That all came out during the ridiculous Government/msm-inspired Coronavirus panic and accompanying “lockdown” regime. The police were behaving like manic clockwork toys: the Government wound them up and off they went…

The police are also now a “poundland KGB” when it comes to so-called “hate crime”, which can mean almost anything, including general comment on society. Look at Alison Chabloz and the persecution she has suffered and is still suffering from the police, who are doing the bidding of —again— the Jewish Zionist lobby. One has to ask, “why is it always (((them)))“?

“Hate crime”…in terms of expressing comments about society, this is a non-crime. The police love it. No need to have an identified “victim” (beyond a malicious “complainant”, such as the two Jewish Zionist organizations, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” and the “Community Security Trust”), no need to do much if any detective work; and the “criminals” (unlike real criminals) are very unlikely to behave in a violent manner if questioned or arrested.

What about this?

Great Reset“? Would that be the same as the “Great Replacement“? Or maybe the latter is just part of the former? What about “White Genocide“?

6 July 2020:

Heard a story about a weekend medical emergency. The usual NHS story, perhaps: efficient and pleasant paramedics, mostly caring but run-off-their-feet nurses (one exception apparently being a nurse sitting doing nothing but watching a frail old patient unable to eat his breakfast porridge by reason of Parkinsons or similar), and excellent doctors one of whom eventually bent the rules so that the patient (the one I know, not the old one with the shaking hands) could get what turned out to be an excellent surgical result immediately, rather than having to wait days or weeks. Food in hospital apparently not bad, and including such as cod Mornay (the food much better than same patient’s experience at same hospital a few years ago, so the NHS can improve, incidentally).

What let down the patient’s experience was, as always with the NHS, the administrative side: transport, and general organization in the hospital and ward, part of which might be ascribed simply to how very busy the nurses were. The poor administration was ameliorated by the willingness of a few staff to bend the rules slightly and not to be jobsworths (which a couple were). That however should not be necessary.

Hearing the story, and having visited a number of hospitals (not as a patient) over the past decade, it seems to me that what is required, in part, is for each hospital ward to have someone as a kind of receptionist and “fixer”.

In offices situated in places like the Arabian/Persian Gulf, there is usually a person (I forget the Arab title) whose job it is, working with a receptionist, to arrange transport, make sure that telephone or other messages are delivered, and so on.

Looking at the often-shambolic NHS organization, it is clear that that is the weakest link. There is no need for all the stress on both staff and patients caused by problems around transport, parking, scheduling of operations, availability of wheelchairs (something so basic!) and other hospital activity. A ward “fixer” might not solve all the problems of the NHS, but it would solve many of the everyday ones. It would also, immediately, free nurses and junior doctors to do their primary work.

It is a great shame that the —mostly very good— work of paramedics, nurses, doctors, surgeons etc should be let down by shambolic administration and systems. What makes it worse is that the administrators, who are so often simply negligent, are among the better paid (at top, hugely well-paid) people in the NHS.

Incidentally, in France there are no hospital wards and have not been since, I believe I read, 1978. Maybe it was 1988. At any rate, since at least 30 years ago, French hospital patients all have either a single room or one shared with one other patient. Another point: in France, certainly in Brittany, patients with serious conditions, and who are being treated as outpatients, have taxis booked at State expense to transport them to and from hospital. Also, as far as I am aware, there is no such thing in French hospitals as having to pay to park a car when visiting patients.

Why is the above (re. French hospitals) all regarded as somehow impossible or unworkable in the UK?

I had assumed that the Coronavirus panic had abated, and so it has…in the general population; not in the NHS though, the GPs of which are still available only on the telephone, and that is only if people can somehow get to talk to them. The NHS has certainly protected itself, but what about the rest of the population?

Jesus H. Christ! They used to call it (or them) “the White Man’s Burden”, but I think that, as far as 95% of them are concerned, “a millstone round our collective neck” is an equally just verdict.

[above: in the USA, a scene like this is usually called a “chimp-out”, or so I am told…]

Of course, little Greta Nut, the Swedish autistic and mental case, who (in our decadent age) is listened to with faked reverence by many of “the great and the good” (but mostly the stupid), makes much of what she always calls “The Science”, despite the fact that she has no scientific qualification (she is still only 17) and obviously has no real understanding either.

The same can be said of the leader (?) of Extinction Rebellion, a former smallholder or farmer called Hallam. He too reverences “The Science”, which he plainly does not understand in any detail. See: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/ and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/extinction-rebellion-greta-thunberg-cressida-dick-and-the-madness-of-protesting-crowds/

Britain’s new and proliferating toytown police state

An actor was stopped in the street by a police officer because she was wearing a strongly worded t-shirt.”

Leaving aside the absurd contemporary affectation by which all actresses are supposed to be referred to as “actors” (and leaving aside the woman’s obviously ridiculous and anti-white views), this is yet another example of the British police acting as a poundland KGB.

So go, if you do not want to stay part of the UK! I am not stopping you. Just remember that, from now on (after Independence), Scotland pays for everything it wants or needs without English help. State spending per head is presently higher in Scotland than it is in England.

I hope that all those Scots pro-Independence voters realize that they will be far poorer after such “Independence”. They will, of course, only be “independent” from the UK, not from the international banking set-up, the transnational companies, the UN, NATO and, perhaps most directly, the EU.

Still, that poll gives me the opportunity to repost the “SNP dim tweet of the day” (which I do not, in fact, post every day). Today, two for the price of one:

Oh, it may have something to do with shared —if not always peaceful— history, cultural links, that sort of thing.

The other view:

“Labour” Party

The social security or “welfare” system is supposed to provide basic subsistence for those without sufficient income. It is not supposed to be a State-run insurance scheme (even though parts of it started like that).

The main problem with public acceptance is that people see migrant-invaders straight off the boat (often a rubber boat landed on a Kent pebble beach) getting more help than the British people do, despite the latter having paid in all their lives.

Not everyone can pay in, but the monies going to invaders who should not even be here are a, maybe the, major problem.

Basic Income must come, but should be available only to British people (and I do mean real British people).

Looking at the latest Labour nonsense (see above), one can see that Labour is going back to a kind of Blairism without Blair, or Gordon Brown-ism without Brown. You have Keir Starmer, with Jewish wife (a lawyer) and whose children are being brought up as Jewish. You have these rather tired or outdated anti-“welfare” statements being made (this is 2020, not 2010). Above all, you have Boris-idiot, not much respected by the public, but sitting there, and sitting on his 80-seat majority which nothing is going to dislodge for at least 2 years.

I had not previously heard of that MP, Jonathan Reynolds.

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

One or two good points noted, such as support for Basic Income and proportional representation. A few bad marks too, such as the fact that he is a vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel. That is very bad.

Reynolds is also one of the many “never had a real job” MPs, really, though he did some (unspecified and probably very minor) work for the local council as well as 4 years’ work for his mentor, the Blairite MP and now BBC bigwig, James Purnell https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Purnell , a horrible little bastard and one-time Chair of Labour Friends of Israel (also a noted expenses cheat).

Reynolds became a solicitor before being elected as MP, but has never practised.

The Last Night of the Proms is of course anachronistic, in that only about three-quarters or so of the inhabitants of the UK are even white/European now! (officially about 85%, but is that a statistic or a mere “damn lie”?).

There are two ways, beyond face value, of looking at the Last Night of the Proms: either it is a reactionary insult to “BAME people” and should be banned, or it is a way of pretending to the remaining British population that Britain is a real country with real patriotic people, when it in fact no longer is…

As Hitchens perhaps implies here, there is only incidentally law enforcement now in Britain. What has taken its place is a kind of politically correct, politically approved enforcement of multikulti society norms, using the law as a ploy, by a police “service” which is on the one hand brainwashed and on the other hand a poundland KGB.
