The Keys of the Kingdom

Saw a fine old film called The Keys of the Kingdom [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Keys_of_the_Kingdom_(film)]. Based on a book by the arguably now-almost-forgotten A.J. Cronin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._Cronin], one of those writers who, while bestselling authors in their day, are later rather neglected. I suppose that Edgar Wallace was another example; he sold 50 million copies of his many works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Wallace.

Watching The Keys of the Kingdom, it again occurred to me how many deeply Christian films were made by Hollywood in its days of greatness, despite the fact that all or almost all studios were owned by Jews. Ben Hur would be just one other example, others yet being Quo Vadis, The Robe, etc.

Today, it is different. Film studios are now usually not only owned by Jews, but the films often directed by Jews, and those films tend to be bitterly Zionist (often promoting the “holocaust” narrative) and/or serving a materialist agenda. Spielberg is only one example.

Multikulti Britain 2021… a dustbin.

Wonderful. A stand taken against the “control” agenda.

As far as the facemask nonsense is concerned, the fear engendered by the System propaganda of a year ago is only a veneer now. Few really believe that everyone is at risk of death. They know (or have guessed something similar) that only 1 in 4,000 people in the world has been killed by “Covid-19”, and that even in swamped (by immigrants and tourists) Britain, only 1 in about every 1,000 people has died from “the virus” (or, more accurately, “within 28 days of a positive test”, though in reality from other conditions).

No doubt the propagandists will try to enforce continued facemask muzzling, but the people are already giving up, despite the dictatorial and possibly invalid “laws”, “rules” etc. The social pressure is less now, as well. I filled up the car with fuel a few days ago and genuinely forgot to put on a disposable mask as I went to pay at the kiosk. A woman exited, also maskless, and the cashier, likewise maskless, did not ask me to put on any mask; in fact, the matter was not mentioned, and she even smiled, a fact I attribute either to her sunny personality or to my charming manner…

Boris-Idiot

I see that my blog post of July 2019, assessing the then new Boris Johnson Cabinet, has been receiving many hits: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/25/the-boris-johnson-cabinet/.

Dominic Cummings

I see that Dominic Cummings has turned against Boris-idiot…https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/apr/23/dominic-cummings-launches-attack-on-boris-johnson

I blogged about Cummings several times over the past two years: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/ etc.

In what were “normal” times, this present government of clowns could and would not exist, certainly not for long, but we have a situation in which there is no legitimate government, yet also no legitimate nor effective official Opposition or opposition party. The former Labour leader, Corbyn, who was weak, and was a bit of a joke, but at was least anti-Zionist (up to a point), was replaced by the Jew-lobby puppet, Keir Starmer, whose idea seems to be to say, all the time, to the Government “we support 90% of what you do, but you should be doing it better…oh and doing it on bended knee, and wearing a facemask“!

I should not be surprised if Labour under Starmer were to start to do worse in elections even than under Corbyn and Miliband.

In Scotland, looks as though Scottish Labour (led now by a Pakistani) has pretty much given up (see tweet below):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anas_Sarwar; https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/19251664.scottish-labour-leader-anas-sarwar-admits-hypocrisy-childrens-private-education/; https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/19255314.being-hypocrite-means-can-see-greed-sides—week-anas-sarwar/

Truly pathetic…

Well, this week I scored 8/10, thus again beating political journalist, and diehard Blairite, John Rentoul, though he managed 7/10, far better than his embarrassing 1/10 of last week (I always give him full credit for honesty, though). The questions which I was unable to answer this week were questions 6 and 8.

World Mental Health Day

Today is, apparently, World Mental Health Day, in honour of which I am reposting a blog article I wrote 15 months ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/

Ha ha!

Good to see. The Zionist-Jew lobby has been making contrived and mendacious complaints for years. I myself have been conspired against in that way: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

In a sense, it is incredible how a people as traditionally (though maybe not so much now) educated and intelligent as the Scots can take petty dictator Sturgeon and her unpleasant little SNP pack seriously. I suppose that the blame lies with the (other, older) System parties: “Labour”, “Conservative”, “Liberal Democrat” (all very much misnamed).

The Labour Party lost all credibility in Scotland, finally grinding to a halt under System drone, Jewish lobby mouthpiece (and now Tony Blair-salaried “gopher”), Jim Murphy, a man who spent 13 years as a university student without even getting a degree! Not forgetting Kezia Dugdale, another “never had a job” drone, idiot (and now newspaper-scribbling lesbian).

The Conservative Party is making minor inroads in Scotland by default, i.e. because they are neither Labour nor SNP (nor LibDem), but I cannot see that getting far, bearing in mind the Boris-idiot government in London and the upcoming economic tsunami triggered by government policy around “the virus”, as well as by badly-mishandled Brexit.

The SNP is only “faux”-nationalist, tolerant of mass immigration (perhaps because Scotland has as yet not been affected as much by it as has been England) and very much in the pocket of the Jewish lobby. Indeed, what sort of “Independence” would it be, if Scotland were still in the EU, NATO, and under the international conspiracy-consensus (NWO, ZOG, Bilderberg etc)?

Still, if Scotland wants “Independence”, let it go its own way, by all means. The rest of Britain can then turn to real social-nationalism.

Here is my own assessment, from last year, of Mike Stuchbery: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/. He keeps tweeting that he has been “libelled” by me and various others (including some Danes, apparently), and that he is “keeping track of all the libel“. He often tweets about how anyone exposing him better get good lawyers and/or that he will “clean out” anyone who tweets or writes about him.

Well, here is a piece of totally free legal advice from an ex-barrister: Stuchbery now has exactly 16 days in which he might start legal proceedings against me in libel in relation to my blog post about him. I am not quaking…

I wish the venture well, though I myself am more of a coffee-drinker (my favourites, now rarely enjoyed, being Turkish/Arab coffee, or a real Viennese “Melange“: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_coffee; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiener_Melange.

I hope that that tweeter, “@DrChrisParry”, knows more about defence than he seems to know about UK strategy more generally. His view seems to be that the UK having a couple of aircraft carriers will push the UK to the top of the tree in terms of world power. Well, the U.S. Navy has 11 aircraft carriers; China has 2 (building another at present, with 6 planned in all); Russia has 2, with 2 more in the pipeline; Italy has 2; France has 1; and so on.

The tweeter noted seems to think that spending money in vast quantities on an aircraft carrier or two will arrest the relative decline of Britain, which has been a fact since 1918 and especially since 1945. This is hardly worth arguing… As for “resisting the power of totalitarian regimes“, the only power constantly intimidating Britain and its corrupt politicians is the USA, our supposed ally… and American military-destructive power dwarfs that of the UK.

Ah, I see that tweeter “@DrChrisParry” does indeed know about defence, at least in its tactical aspects, he having been an admiral and a commander of ships in actual warfare: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Parry_(Royal_Navy_officer). Sadly, it remains true that, just as the environment cannot be left to farmers (because of both self-interest and blinkered viewpoints), defence strategy cannot be left to the generals and admirals, however distinguished.

Oh, the sheer pleasure of being able to slowly advance in that vehicle, watching the horror slowly dawn on the bitch’s face as she realises that she is going down. Would she try to run or jump away in the last split-second, or would she just utter a last scream as the “tank” rolls over her?

That driver is very patient.

Stanley Johnson. Part-Jew, part-Turk, but “sanctified” as a True Blue Brit and “gentleman” by reason of having attended Sherborne School and Oxford…

Blood is destiny. Look at Stanley Johnson’s offspring: Boris-idiot, public entertainer, scribbler of rubbish, and poseur, presently doing a tragi-comic reprise (in miniature) of Winston Churchill; Jo Johnson, politician and former newspaper scribbler specializing in finance; Rachel Johnson, scribbler, editor and TV talking head; Leo Johnson, who is described by Wikipedia as “entrepreneur and film-maker“. Need one say (((more)))?

Tomorrow is often unexpected

I happened to see this:

When I visited the DDR (East Germany) briefly in 1988, the impression I received was that it was more like a stage set of a state than a real one, but I had no idea that, as little as a year or so later, that state would not exist.

Who knows, really, how long any state, even one as longlasting as the UK, will last?

Why did the DDR collapse? Why did the Soviet Union collapse? Many causes, but overall because they decayed internally. That was the number one cause.

Now look at the UK. It may continue for decades, or even centuries. More likely, it will pass into history within a few years from today.

Peter Hitchens still (perhaps) thinks that the UK as a “nation” (no, it is not really a nation any more) exists and that its old and now ramshackle institutions (courts, judges, Parliament, “free” Press, BBC) still have value. “Where are they?“, asks Hitchens, despairingly. They are now but “whited sepulchres”, almost-ruins.

Stay angry, yet patient“? In Zulu, it was more “stay cool but open fire“.

Once again, a nice, well-behaved, civilized English person who thinks that we need “debate”. I think that we need something quite different (though true facts are always useful).

The “Conservative” Party does hate most of its voters. Look at the Parliamentary Party, the Cabinet, the [person posing as] Prime Minister! What do we see? Jews, Mischlingen, wealthy Indians, token blacks and half-castes like Cleverly. As for the white English and Welsh “Conservative” MPs, most are either greedy speculators like Jacob Rees-Mogg, idiot backwoodsmen in it for the pay and expenses (like Peter Bone), or lobby fodder —and (((lobby))) fodder— without an original thought in all their heads combined.

A few final thoughts for today

Trump: whatever one’s general view of him, he has proven his point. He is 74, overweight, has a poor diet (we are told), has contracted “the virus”, yet has spent only a few days in hospital (and mainly out of his doctors’ caution). His wife, also infected, has just been resting at home.

Conclusion: this is not the plague, most people are not even aware that they have “the virus”; few die from it (in relation to those infected or the population as a whole).

The UK “panicdemic”: the government is simply afraid to tell people “we got it wrong; this is nowhere as bad as we have been saying for 6 months“.

UK finances: now it is becoming clear that either there will be even more public spending cuts, reducing the UK to the backward status of a third-rate power (complete with “diverse” population), or there will have to be steep tax rises for the majority of the population.

A kind of semi-dictatorship, hard to define but somewhere between an oligarchy and what someone wittily termed a “wallygarchy”, is being put into place, not overnight but in Lilliputian steps; many small binding ties. The unnecessary fear the “government of clowns” has injected into the population makes that process much easier…but destroys almost everything else.

Diary Blog, 25 September 2020, including thoughts about the SNP and about the encroaching police state in the UK generally

So far, the msm is promoting Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak for his largesse with public funds and his schemes to somehow keep large parts of the poisoned economy alive. In fact, it is telling that several Conservative Party MPs have coyly implied that Sunak would be better at being PM than irrelevant poseur Boris-idiot.

“Boris” is like a faded entertainer whose jokes are now falling flat and who, having been a major draw, is reduced to treading the boards in the provinces. While Sunak was expounding his rather underwhelming ideas and new policies in the Commons, “Boris” was inspecting police recruits at some place in East Anglia.

Not so sure about the “great“, but the article in question is important at this time, and Hitchens himself is at least willing to see what is happening, as many in the msm either turn a blind eye or fall in behind the System.

SNP

The SNP is a phenomenon. A faux-“nationalist” party which has succeeded in gaining power not because of its own merits but because there was nothing much opposing it.

The SNP [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party] was founded in 1934, but only had its first MP elected in 1967. It increased representation to 7, then 11, in the febrile political conditions of 1974 (also the time when North Sea Oil https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Sea_oil came to the forefront of public attention). [it’s different now: the cost of production is higher than the price of the oil produced in 2020].

The Scottish public was sold the idea that much of Britain’s North Sea oil was really Scotland’s North Sea oil…a doubtful (though not completely implausible) proposition, looking at the geography and the Law of the Sea as it applies to Exclusive Economic Zones [EEZs]:

The Scottish seats at Westminster then numbered 71, later increased to 72 but reduced from 2005 to 59. The SNP’s 11 MPs in 1974 remained the high-water mark until the SNP’s huge breakthrough in 2015, when the SNP under Nicola Sturgeon suddenly had 56 out of those 59. In 2010, the SNP had had elected only 6 MPs.

After decline to 35 MPs in 2017, the SNP (as I predicted) surged again to 48 MPs in 2019.

In fact, the apparent landslide does not reflect the views of the public very well. FPTP voting distortion. Even in 2015, when the SNP got 56 out of 59 Westminster seats, its vote-share was no more than 50%. In 2019, that was only 45%, yet the SNP has 48 out of 59 seats.

The SNP rose up for several reasons. Firstly because “it was there”; it existed. People cannot vote for a party that does not exist.

Secondly, the Scottish Labour Party, so long dominant, collapsed after years of complacency and corruption. The name that comes to mind is that of Jim Murphy, a complete System puppet. He got his first “real job”(sort-of…working for Scottish Labour!) at the age of 30! He had been a student for 12-13 years without even managing to get a degree!

Jim Murphy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career] hit all the buttons: a doormat for the Jewish lobby [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career]; an expenses cheat and freeloader [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Expenses], who claimed over £1M from 2001-2010; a rubberstamp for Blair and Brown. Murphy later (from 2016) became a salaried “gopher” for Tony Blair and still seems to be one.

The Murphy fiasco was symptomatic of a party totally out of touch. It had thrown away “socialism” in stages after 1990; by the time Murphy became leader in 2014, Scottish Labour stood for almost nothing but the Union with England, as well as a continuation of a failed society and economy.

Murphy was followed by Kezia Dugdale [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kezia_Dugdale], another one who, like Murphy, had never had an outside job. Generally useless.

Scottish Labour has had three more leaders since 2015, none of which has troubled national attention.

Scottish Labour (until 1994 simply part of the —UK— Labour Party) had been first-placed in Scotland in all general elections from 1922. The party was only placed second in 2015, third in 2017 and fourth in 2019. A stunning collapse. The popular vote share fell from 42% in 2010 to 18.6% in 2019. 41 MPs out of 59 in 2010, 1 MP in 2015, briefly 7 MPs in 2017, only to fall back to 1 MP in 2019.

It might be objected that Scottish Labour can still come back. I cannot see how. Recent surveys indicate that, as with Conservative Party support in England, Scottish Labour Party voters are mostly elderly people. A diminishing asset.

In the Scottish Parliament too, Scottish Labour has steadily declined, from 56 seats out of 129 in 1999 to 24 in 2016. The SNP currently has 63 MSPs.

What about the other Scottish parties? The Scottish LibDems now have 4 Westminster MPs out of 59 (11 in 2019, and 1 in 2015); in the Scottish Parliament, another steady decline, 17 out of 129 in 1999, 5 out of 129 now (2016 election).

The Scottish Conservatives declined steadily from 1955 to 1997 (no MPs at all were elected in 1997, and the party then had only one until 2017, when 13 were elected); presently, the Conservatives hold 6 Westminster seats out of 59. The Scottish Conservatives have increased their Holyrood representation: 18 MSPs in 1999, 15 in 2011, but 31 out of 129 in 2016.

The pattern is clear overall. The SNP came up in the 2010-2015 period because the other main parties were seen as declining entities with little to offer. The SNP may now be a fake “nationalist” elected dictatorship North of the Border, and rather incompetent to boot, but there is no obvious sign of challenge as far as Westminster elections are concerned.

In England, we see that Labour has floundered, that the Conservative Party is disastrous (too) and “won” in 2019 by default, with the LibDems on their last legs, but what does not exist in England (or Wales) is any semblance of a new or insurgent and upcoming party.

In Wales, Plaid Cymru is hampered not only because it is not really “nationalist”, but because Wales would be a very very poor little land had it to pay for itself as an “independent” state. Indeed, there is every chance that the Welsh economy will submerge further in 2020 and 2021.

In England proper, there is no real social-national party at all. If one were to exist, the next few years, as the economy crashes, as Brexit is mishandled and ruined, and as mass immigration continues, could be the years of triumph.

In fact, others did speak out, but they were, like me, not msm-approved scribblers and talking heads. I do not even have a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had Twitter expel me in 2018).

Good point. In fact, look at the societies or states in the world that are effectively all black: Liberia; Sierra Leone; Haiti, Congo, Nigeria (etc). Not places where many white (or black) people would want to live. Indeed, compare the two sides of the island of Hispaniola: on the one side, the Dominican Republic, a black/mixed/mestizo and white state; then look at Haiti, an almost entirely black state…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispaniola#Ethnic_composition; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispaniola; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominican_Republic; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti

Generally speaking, the higher the proportion of European or European-ancestry people that exists in any given country, the better, overall, that country is.

Oh, what a surprise. Not. I have been raging against Boris-idiot for about 10 or more years, on Twitter since 2011 and in this blog since late 2016. My influence as yet is small, and it has felt at times like a hopeless struggle against the msm talking heads and scribblers, who have been pushing this completely unfitted vanity machine for about two decades. In fact, the unmerited “triumph” of “Boris” shows how powerful msm propaganda is when it comes to “the moronic masses”…(cf. facemasks and “Coronavirus” fear propaganda in general).

Talking of “the moronic masses”…here we have a British population which, faced with an epidemic that, in the UK, has killed about 1 in 2,000 of the population (and worldwide, about 1 in 8,000), has allowed itself to be scared to death. The majority, or at least about half, of the population seem to want to be locked in their homes, forced to wear facemask muzzles, prevented from going out or going anywhere much, so long as the State funnels some more money their way. As Shakespeare might say, “ay, there’s the rub“, for that money is, ultimately, the resource available by reason of a functioning economy.

No economy = no money. Not immediately. The Government can borrow, and is borrowing. At present, at advantageous rates. Borrowing to invest in people and projects is often good as a policy; to borrow merely to sustain a failing range of industries and companies, or to pay people’s bills, is not a good policy, and will be disastrous in the end.

Ha ha! Fanatical UK-based Jews think that they can hound their critics worldwide! In most countries, the repressive laws of the UK are not replicated, and in some (eg USA) there are safeguards for free speech.

The “Campaign Against Antisemitism” has been making malicious allegations to Twitter, Facebook, professional bodies and police for years: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Most of their contrived attempts to use the UK police as puppets have failed.
