The “Great Reset”

“The Great Reset” is not some kind of weird “conspiracy theory”. It is a real conspiracy or, if you like, “consensus”. See the Financial Times, for example: https://www.ft.com/content/39c53b9f-f443-4dde-9cdb-07e8999ec783.

Scribblers such as Hitchens would be far more credible were they able to write about how disastrous the Second World War was; and, above all, that it need not have happened….(Hitchens is part-Jew, though, so that may play a part in his reticence).

https://www.timesofisrael.com/customized-van-helps-uk-holocaust-survivors-record-their-stories-during-pandemic/

A “holocaust” “survivor”, born in a WW2 camp in Austria, who spent one week there until American forces arrived. Don’t they see how mad this is (and reads)?

Incidentally, that Israeli report says at first that the said “survivor” was born at Mauthausen camp, and then lived there for a month; later it clarifies that, and says that she was only there for one week! How long was the stay? A month, a week, or maybe even only one day? I myself know nothing of the matter and, of course, cannot say whether the account is true at all, though there is no particular reason to disbelieve the entirety of the narrative .

Obviously, elderly persons cannot actually remember anything of what happened to them when they were a day, a week, or a month old. The report says that the person mentioned tells stories about her mother, on the premise that the mother had told them to the daughter.

Equally obviously, I know nothing of what happened to that mother during or before WW2. How long was she at that camp? It is unclear where she originated. From the surname, maybe in Czechoslovakia.

Mauthausen is in Austria, which joined with Germany after the plebiscite of 1938. Czechoslovakia was entirely annexed to the German Reich in 1939. The central Mauthausen camp was constructed from 1938, and became a labour camp in 1939. There were offshoots. In other words, it was in operation for up to 7 years.

We do not know whether the mother of the “survivor” mentioned in the Times of Israel report was at Mauthausen from the late 1930s, early 1940s, or only during 1945 when the Americans arrived. Later rather than earlier, in all probability. At any rate, the mother also survived the war and, according to the newspaper report, died in 2013 in the UK.

There is a continuing propaganda effort made by Israel and by Zionists resident elsewhere. We should never accept accounts, whether first-hand or, as here, secondhand (or third-hand), naively, meaning on trust. Not when there is a large-scale operation behind these sorts of accounts.

Moreover, the “historical” aspect is to some extent a red herring. The real purpose is to reinforce Zionist power now, in the contemporary world.

China, for all its impressive achievements ancient and modern, is appalling. There is a self-interested cabal in Britain, centred on the financial industry, that is effectively a pro-China lobby group. Many MPs have also been bought or suborned by China. We should be joining with Russia to oppose China, NWO and ZOG (though Russia is itself not uncontaminated by the last).

Oh…and look at this! I blogged about the egregious Professor Ferguson only yesterday or the day before:

PETER HITCHENS: Guess where Professor Lockdown got his ideas … China’s police state…” [Mail on Sunday]

One of the strangest things about our recent national madness has been the role of Professor Neil Ferguson, the physicist who has somehow come to dominate Johnson’s Covid policy.

Physicist? Yes, that is his main academic discipline. He doesn’t even have a Biology O-level, as he himself cheerfully admits. But that’s no odder than his repeated record of wild predictions of vast numbers of deaths, for a variety of diseases from foot-and-mouth to mad cow, which can kindly be described as exaggerated.

And then there’s his complicated private life, which resulted in a pretty clear breach of the miserable restrictions he had helped to impose on the rest of us. As with all such cases, I don’t blame him for breaking the stupid rules. I despise him as a hypocrite for supporting them and then thinking they didn’t apply to him.

Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, said at the time that it was ‘just not possible’ for Ferguson to continue advising the Government. But this was not true. The professor was said to have resigned from the SAGE advisory committee. But did he? Not really. 

A current State website lists him as a member of the ‘New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group’ (NERVTAG). Minutes suggest he was only ever away from that for a few weeks. But this is small potatoes, set beside an amazing admission by Ferguson in a recent interview with the semi-official newspaper The Times. 

Here, Ferguson spoke of SAGE’s growing admiration for China’s tyrannical attempts to contain Covid.

To begin with they thought – with good reason – that the dishonest and repressive Chinese state was covering up the truth about the Wuhan outbreak. I am sure they still are covering it up.

Modern China is a horrible place, cruel, ruthless and unembarrassed. But for some reason SAGE came to like Peking’s Covid strategy. Ferguson told The Times that ‘as the data accrued it became clear it was an effective policy’.

I’d be interested to know how the SAGE geniuses evaluated data from this police state, which lacks a free press or independent universities. But there.

Even so, they hesitated. As Ferguson says: ‘It’s a Communist one-party state, we said. We couldn’t get away with it in Europe, we thought.’

Aren’t those words ‘we couldn’t get away with it’ interesting? Is this the way in which public servants in a free country think of the normal limits on what they can do? I can only hope not.

But Ferguson and his friends then saw what happened in Italy, where a formerly free country reached for the weapons of repression and mass house arrest. And the rule of fear was so great that they got away with it. So we were next. Or, as Ferguson puts it: ‘And then Italy did it. And we realised we could.’

They could. But they did not have to. They chose the Chinese way. And so they ‘got away with’ beginning a disaster which still continues. There is still no evidence that any of this Chinese-inspired repression has worked.

Every country that has locked down has failed to control the disease and keeps doing the same thing over and over again in the hope of getting a different result.

If lockdown is an effective policy, then the guillotine is a good cure for a headache (except that the guillotine probably does cure a headache).

The shame of it is that the lockdown fanatics did ‘get away with it’, and continue to do so. That is, quite simply, because most of the responsible people in our society did not stand up for wisdom and freedom but allowed themselves to be swept away in a flood of State-sponsored fear, like so many pawns.” [Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday].

Not sure that that is correct. It has been long since I was a practising barrister, and even longer since I had any substantial contact with private international law, or tax law (though I did both academically in the 1980s, and to a limited extent professionally in the succeeding two decades).

Still, it seems to me that countries (states) do not enforce the tax laws of other countries. I cannot see how that law can be enforced or even organized. I hesitate to say that that tweet is simply wrong, because I do not know, and because nothing that this bad excuse for a government might do would surprise me.

A “thought out of season

We support this or that, oppose this or that, do this or that, and all the while all that we are doing is, in effect, a re-arranging of the deck chairs on the Titanic, in the hackneyed phrase.

Interesting historical note about Southern England

“At the end of the last glaciation, about 10,000 years ago, the area’s ecosystem was characterised by a largely treeless tundraPollen studies have shown that this was replaced by a taiga of birch, and then pine, before their replacement in turn (c. 4500 BC) by most of the species of tree encountered today – including, by 4000 BC, the beech, which seems to have been introduced from mainland Europe. This was used as a source of flour, ground from the triangular nutlets contained in the “mast”, or fruit of the beech, after its tannins had been leached out by soaking. Beechmast has also traditionally been fed to pigs.[7]

However, by 4000 BC, as Oliver Rackham has indicated, the dominant tree species was not the beech, but the small-leaved lime, also known as the pry tree.[8] The wildwood was made up of a patchwork of lime-wood areas and hazel-wood areas, interspersed with oak and elm and other species. The pry seems to have become less abundant now because the climate has turned against it, making it difficult for it to grow from seed. Nevertheless, some remnants of ancient lime-wood still remain in south Suffolk.[9]

Clearance of forests began with the introduction of farming (c. 4500 BC), particularly in the higher-lying parts of the country, like the South Downs. At this time, the whole region, apart from upland areas under plough, and marshy areas (e.g. Romney Marsh in Kent and much of Somerset), was heavily forested, with woodland stretching nearly everywhere.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Lowlands_beech_forests

Ha ha! In fact, tweeter “katmonkey/@braidedriver2” is halfway right. “@rattus2384” is in fact house-husband, and one-time “film critic”, Stephen Applebaum (who also tweets as “@grubstreetsteve”). He has no job or profession, so she is right in principle.

On the wider point, that cartoon has it quite right. For those who, like me, are neither employed nor self-employed, the “lockdowns” or near lockdowns make little difference beyond being a general nuisance.

In my own case, being now 64, and having been disbarred in 2016 by reason of the machinations of a pack of Jews [see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/], I have nowhere to commute to or attend on a daily basis. I never attend (and rarely ever did) parties, or crowded nightclubs and/or discotheques. In fact, I lead —and generally have led— a fairly reclusive life (with some exceptions in previous times, admittedly).

My own everyday life is scarcely impacted at all by “lockdowns” etc. I oppose these stupid “measures” because they are trashing society, trashing the economy, ruining the very concept of law, and for what? Nothing.

It is obvious, as that cartoon expresses, that the public sector (including much of the NHS) is in fact working far less now but for enhanced or the same pay as pertained pre-“the virus”. The retired, unemployed and disabled are as well off, or better off, than they were “pre-Covid”.

Particularly well-off are MPs, who are getting more pay than before, who in many cases are getting more paid outside (and often fake) “work”, (almost bribes, really) “consultancy”, but are doing almost nothing for it.

Beware of most “scientists” and technical bods, with their often very narrow range of knowledge, and their often very fixed political viewpoint.

The truth is out there, as they say…or to use another well-worn phrase, you can lead a horse to water but cannot make it drink. The problem with the “virus” situation”, including the facemask nonsense, “lockdowns”, the economic consequences etc, is that most people do not want to think, and do not want responsible freedom; they want to be told what to do, when to clap, when to wear a face muzzle, and when to obey “official” directives, even if more or less made up by the local police superintendent.

We have been here before: most British people refused to take the threat of, and consequences of, mass immigration seriously. They preferred to direct their interest to whether the “England” team would win a football, cricket or rugby game on the other side of the world. Look at the results…

Alison Chabloz

Readers of this blog will be aware that persecuted singer-songwriter and satiriste Alison Chabloz was to have been tried today, following a complaint by the malicious Jew-Zionist “charity”, the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”.

[Alison Chabloz]

Alison had been (probably unlawfully) banned from posting anything on the Internet since her arrest in January of this year, an arrest which took place immediately after yet another malicious complaint against her (also by the CAA…) failed, inasmuch as the CPS decided not to oppose her appeal to Derby Crown Court following her first-instance conviction at the magistrates’ court on a charge of having breached the conditions of her suspended sentence from 2018 on yet another CAA-instigated charge!

The real reason why Alison’s appeal at Derby succeeded (in effect) was because the CPS was unwilling to produce documentation which would have proven political interference in her case, and in particular in why she was prosecuted, i.e.Jewish-Zionist suborning of senior political figures of the time, notably David Gauke, the then Secretary of State for Justice.

Alison Chabloz has certainly already suffered much from “them”…

Well, latest news is that Alison’s trial, which was set to be started and perhaps completed today, has been (for the third or fourth time) adjourned. Her bail conditions have apparently been amended: she can now post on the Internet, publish elsewhere, or broadcast, but —crucially— excluding anything about Jews, Israel, the Second World War, or “famous figures” of that era (ha ha…); also anything about the NSDAP or “the Jewish religion”.

I suppose those very restrictive conditions scarcely count as a amendment at all, bearing in mind the entirely Jewish, Zionist, and pro-Israel roots of the complaint against her. However, there would be little point in her appealing the conditions, in view of the fact that the trial has now been put off until 17 December 2020, only a month away.

May victory attend her on 17 December!

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas“…

Looking at the many tweets from those making money out of BBC, ITV, Sky, the msm in general, all kowtowing to the “BLM” etc exclusion of white British people from their own Christmas and their own society, I see that our country is just riddled with traitors and collaborators.

Tweets seen today

As readers of my blog will know, I never took Corbyn (or McDonnell) seriously. Corbyn’s only positive point, ideologically, was that he was supposedly “anti-Zionist”. Well, as I wrote on many occasions, Corbyn managed to oppose Jewish power in Israel, Palestine, the Middle East generally, yet not seriously oppose it in the UK, France or Europe generally. He was always paying lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago etc.

McDonnell was worse yet, so I was more than pleased when, after the 2019 General Election, McDonnell was interviewed in his garden looking totally stunned, or as I put it at the time, “like a pensioner tipped out of his wheelchair and mugged”.

There is no point in repeating in detail my view that Corbyn is anyway as thick as two short planks. Still, to see him now, waiting for the Jews to tell him to jump, so that he can ask “how high?”, is simply pathetic.

Corbyn will no doubt continue to have his supporters on Twitter (aka “Witter”…), but he is yesterday’s news, as is McDonnell. Many of their most ardent supporters are still stuck in the Spanish Civil War or something! “No Pasaran!”, “The Battle of Cable Street” etc.

Impressions of the evening

Heard part of the pathetic BBC Radio 4 PM programme. Two things caught my attention. First of all, yet again the ridiculous Professor Ferguson was on as the great “virus” expert, despite his many completely wrong forecasts (not just “Britain will have 800,000 fatalities from Coronavirus by May 2020” but similar nonsense years before, re. the Foot and Mouth outbreak) but also his breaking of his own “rules”, put into (invalid) “law” by the Boris-idiot government.

The second piece that more than caught my attention was the revelation that the NHS had apparently been unable to source protective clothing etc without going via a Spanish broker-person (paid USD $20 million or more!) who sourced the stuff from a jeweller in Florida who had bought the stuff as a gamble on spec. from Chinese contacts!

The contracts were worth hundreds of millions of pounds!

What the hell is wrong with this country?!

Sometimes, even I am amazed at how truly screwed this country is…

“In other news”, the police are going to “review” the ludicrous and quite possibly invalid (and often unenforceable) £10,000 fixed penalty tickets they have been handing out to people having a party or barbeque during the stupid “lockdown” etc.

Oh, and in the nasty little police state formerly known as Scotland, that ghastly bitch Sturgeon was heard laying down her (supposed) anti-“virus” regulations. The bit I heard was that some exception would be made for the Jewish holiday of Hannukah. She actually used the word, which I suppose until recent years most British people had never heard in their lives.

Talking of Jews, I had to laugh during an episode of The Chase. Question: “what is the Hebrew word for a community gathering?“, to which the obvious answer was “kibbutz” (not sure whether the question was phrased exactly right but the required answer was obvious). The contestant screwed up her face and came out with…”ghetto?” Very amusing.

Alison Chabloz update

Without going into the legal nitti-gritti, the matter being still before the court, Alison’s trial, which was supposedly to start today, was —as blogged earlier— yet again adjourned, this time to 17 December 2020. Apparently, the Crown Prosecution Service was yet again unprepared, and (I hear) displayed both confusion and a degree of disingenuousness.

Again, as noted earlier today, Alison’s bail conditions were notionally varied, allowing her to post on the Internet so long as she says nothing about Jews, Israel, the Second World War, “major WW2 personalities” (It’s That Man Again!) or similar matters. So, in reality, little has changed. A judgment of Solomon. Almost Talmudic.

If Only “The War” Had Never Happened

I happened to see the second tweet below, the one showcasing an opinion poll from November 1947:

You see, here we are 73 years later, and the Jewish lobby with the compliant msm are constantly putting forward the idea that the 1930s were backward, poor, basically terrible, but that “the war” changed all that. In reality, the latter part of the 1930s was a time of general economic and social advance.

Looking mainly at the UK, the second part of the 1930s was a time when, at least in the South and Midlands, there were job opportunities, new towns and roads being constructed, air routes being laid out, both across Europe and, via Imperial Airways etc, worldwide, using safe and comfortable flying boats.

Across the South of England, people were moving into the detached and semi-detached suburban housing still considered desirable property today, 80-90 years later.

More than that. Advanced thinkers were already laying the intellectual foundations for the Welfare State: decent public housing, a National Health Service etc.

Then came the war. It has been said that, under strict WW2 rationing, perhaps as much as a quarter of the UK population was actually better-fed than it had been in the 1930s, an indication of the social inequality rampant before the war. However, in general, the war impoverished the whole nation (how could it not?). Britain suffered under rationing of various types until the mid-1950s! There is no doubt that poverty and indeed inequality would overall have been ameliorated quicker had the war not “frozen” the social situation.

Before 1939, Britain was taking steps to grant independence to the colonies. The White colonies had already achieved Dominion status. The colonies of black Africa and elsewhere might have been given independence later but on a more secure basis, after sufficient Africans (etc) had achieved the stature capable of running advanced societies and economies. Sadly, that never happened.

“The War”, as UK people still call WW2, was disastrous for most of the peoples, animals, birds etc of the world. Environmental degradation today continues apace, a result, ultimately, of the corruption and inefficiency of the “independent” states formed after WW2.

The peoples of the former colonies have suffered wars, civil wars, banditry, rapacious officialdom, you name it. All because of premature decolonization. Not only in the former British Empire, which attained its greatest territorial extent after the First World War, in 1918. About a third of the world was under British control at that time. Also, there were the colonies of the other European states in Africa and elsewhere, those of France, Portugal, Spain, Belgium and the former German colonies (South West Africa, Tanganyika).

How much better a world would we now have were those formerly colonized lands still under European rule, or ruled in collaboration with a large enough and cultured enough African elite built up by the colonial powers over time …Look at Rhodesia up to 1979, and then its decrepit successor-state, Zimbabwe…

This is not just a question for the UK. It is a problem, historical and contemporary, for the world.

In Europe, the UK (and France) might have not given the Poles the worthless “guarantees” of 1939, which led the Poles to imagine that Britain and France would actually fight for Poland. Never happened.

Likewise, after the Fall of France in 1940, Britain might have secured an honourable armistice with the German Reich, so saving the peoples of Western and Central Europe from the massive destruction caused, mainly, by the Allied and Soviet forces during, again mainly, 1941-45. It would also have meant no Soviet takeover of the East and most of the Centre of Europe by Stalin’s Soviet Union in the mid-1940s.

We hear much (much too much) of the Jews, who were, prior to WW2, being allowed to emigrate from Germany and its allied or vassal states. Indeed, the Germans were glad to be rid of them. Well, had there been an armistice in 1940, that emigration would have continued: to the USA, Australia, Palestine etc.

Terrorism after WW2 was a product of the terrorists or “guerrillas” during that war, both those trained and funded by the shambolic British organization, SOE, and by the Soviet Union (the “partisans”). Most postwar “terrorism” from 1945 through to recent times can be traced back readily enough to British, American and Soviet sources.

Had “the War” (in the West) never happened, or been stopped in its tracks in 1940, the Soviet Union would probably have collapsed by 1942, there would have been no massive destruction by Soviet forces (or by the UK/USA air fleets) in the Europe of 1941-45, no Cold War, no Berlin Wall, no East-West proxy wars. The Israeli state and the arrogant Arab and Iranian oil states would have all either been strangled at birth, or kept on a tight rein.

In Britain itself, the neglected historian Correlli Barnett [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correlli_Barnett] has made the point that, because of Britain’s having been bled dry by the War, it could not do more than one, or at most two, of its three main policy aims after 1945:

  • keep the Empire;
  • regenerate UK industry and commerce;
  • introduce a Welfare state.

In the end, Britain tried to do all three, but could not fully succeed in any, eventually almost abandoning the Empire and its remnants.

If only there had been no “War”, or a war lasting only a year…

If only.

A Few Thoughts About 6 June 1944 and also (mainly) About 6 June 2019

Foreword

Well, here we are on 6 June 2019. Peterborough by-election day, but also the 75th commemoration of the Normandy Landings, aka D-Day. There has been wall-to-wall coverage on BBC News, ITV News and Sky News.

Preamble

This is not the place in which to discuss whether the Second World War could have been avoided (on the Western Front, in Western Europe generally; I think that it could have been). This is not the place in which to discuss whether the British Empire and the German Reich could have concluded an honourable armistice after the Fall of France (I think that they might have done; Germany made about ten separate offers).

It is important to note that these anniversaries are made use of by the Jewish Zionist element. Which is partly why they are pushed so hard on TV. Another chance to remind the masses about “the Nazis”, about how bad they supposedly were, and about how “necessary” it was to declare war on Germany, and eventually to defeat “the Nazis” (and so, Germany).

My own father was too young to be in the armed forces for much of WW2, though he was, near the end of the war, recruited by lot as a “Bevin Boy” (he was born and brought up in County Durham), and worked both in coal mining and later a shipyard (after the war, he became a professional footballer). Ironically, that service, far from the front lines of the war, killed him about 70 years later (via exposure to asbestos in a shipyard).

My maternal grandfather served as a soldier throughout WW2 and was both at Dunkirk and, rather later, in Burma.

Overview of my outlook re. the Second World War

My view of the war, even leaving aside my general sympathy with National Socialism in terms of ideology and aspiration, is that, on the Western Front, it need not have happened and should not have happened. I believe the same about the First World War, incidentally.

More

Born in 1956, I was brought up, as people were then, with “the War” as a constant backdrop. My grandfather talked scarcely at all about his war service with the British Expeditionary Force in 1939-40, or with the Army in Burma for much of the rest of the war, though it affected his health. He did give the odd bit of advice when I, aged maybe 7 or 8, was laying out my little Airfix plastic soldiers (various armies, but including, I think, German, British Eighth Army, Japanese and US Marines). I remember a couple of his comments, such as that patrolling soldiers should always be following one another in a line if in jungle, never abreast.

Had my grandfather not already been in uniform by reason of having been in the Territorial Army in 1939, he might never have served actively in the war at all, being at the time 38 or 39 years old (the usual cut-off age was 41). That’s Fate…

As mentioned above, people of my age who were brought up in the 1950s and 1960s always had “the War” there, around, like the woodsmoke and burning leaf smell of autumn in those days. The Germans were regarded by children of my age as honourable enemies (unlike the Japanese) and not some force of malign and almost cosmic evil, as the Jews try to make out now.

The Jewish “holocaust” propaganda and historical distortion that is now pervasive had not then really started in a big way. Also, the unspoken narrative was that Britain had suffered and struggled and “won the war”. The —in fact, overwhelming— input of the USA and the Soviet Union was popularly regarded (not only by children) as being at best no more (even taken together!) than that of the UK.

Churchill (as myth) hung over the scene like a Mount Rushmore presidential sculpture or —with apology to Jane Russell— like a thundercloud, only equalled by the leader of the “German hordes”, Hitler.

In the early 1960s, my grandparents never missed All Our Yesterdays (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Our_Yesterdays_(TV_series) and I usually watched it with them.

The UK at that time (1960s) was still basically homogenous racially, certainly outside London or some port cities. In places like Reading, where I was born, and on the edge of which I lived until age 10 (my family was then in Sydney for 3 years), there were few blacks and browns (in fact, barring a family of Anglo-Indians whom we knew, there were almost none). The only black I recall seeing in England in the early/mid 1960s was the NHS consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading who treated me for hearing impairment at age 7 or 8. He was from somewhere in the Caribbean. The country was then still a nation. The various war anniversaries were just part of the landscape, along with Trooping of the Colour, the Royal Tournament (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Tournament), the University Boat Race, Ascot, the Queen etc.

Today

Today, the UK is split and fissured racially, ethnically, economically, ideologically. It is scarcely a nation at all.

Today, with the “D-Day” ceremonies, the old Establishment or old Britain had its day in the sun: the unthinking royalists, the BBC and other msm, the remnants of the British armed forces (both of WW2 vintage and from today’s depleted armed services).

Though today’s ceremonies were in similar format to those of the past, there was, despite the wall-to-wall BBC/ITV/Sky news coverage, an end of the season feel. I wondered how many millions were really watching the seemingly endless TV.

I very much doubt that any but a tiny percentage of the ethnic minorities watched the shows today. Fewer will have understood the background even in the cartoon form presented by the TV people (Good v. Evil etc).

I would be prepared to bet that less than 1% of the population under 25 years of age watched more than a minute or two of the news coverage about the ceremonies in England and France. Same applies to most persons of non-European origin.

What we see here are two UKs: there is

  • the official, Establishment UK, together with the msm and the Jewish Zionist element (who latch onto anything “Second World War” as an opportunity to re-demonize National Socialist Germany); and the few now very elderly people who were at least in their teens in 1944; and there is also
  • the real UK, which is vastly more numerous and mostly has no interest in what happened in 1944.

In fact, it occurs to me that that division (between those who regard today’s ceremonies as hugely important, and those who regard them as of no interest or importance) reflects the change in UK society, and also that in UK politics. There is a chasm between what, say, the BBC or Sky think important, and what the bulk of the public think. A difference of orientation, of what is in the emotional life and which will eventually change political life.

Update and further thoughts, 8 June 2019

As I write, Trooping of the Colour, held today, is not trending on Twitter (not that Twitter is the world) anything like as much as the Michael Gove cocaine scandal. Point made, I think. These events (Trooping of the Colour, WW2/WW1 anniversaries etc) have some significance for the elderly, perhaps to some extent for those who (like me, aged 62) prefer not to think of themselves as elderly quite yet; for some (a minority) of white (i.e. real) British/English people, but not at all for the “broad masses” and certainly not, speaking in group terms, for the ethnic minorities.

Yet the System is still trying to interest the people in such things. Look at this tweet by Tom Newton Dunn of the Sun “newspaper” [below]: May Bank Holiday changed date next year.

The fact is, that moving a one-day holiday to a different date is not going to have much if any impact on the public, whatever amount of “news coverage” (propaganda) is pumped out. It just does not now have much emotional impact on most people in the UK, not even those of (real) British origin (and let’s not pretend that the Africans, West Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese etc in the UK are somehow at one with the descendants of the Huguenots or those of long-ago Viking/Norman origin etc…).

As the Second World War recedes in memory and time, these commemorations become ever less relevant. The Jewish Zionist element has latched onto them in a parasitic way, as a method of pursuing its anti-Third Reich, anti-anti-Semitism message, along with pushing the “holocaust” fable and industry. It has less resonance with every year that passes, though.

It is the measure of the national self delusion still abroad that the question as to whether “D-Day” could be mounted today, in 2019 [see tweet below], could ever be asked!

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9232117/tobias-ellwood-calls-for-defence-budget-increase/

“Struggle” to mount D-Day again?! Ha ha!

Tobias Ellwood MP [Con, Bournemouth East] may have reached the exalted rank of Army captain (Royal Greenjackets), but either is ignorant of history, strategy and geopolitics, or (far more likely) is talking in this manner in order to boost the MOD budget. He cannot seriously imagine that Britain could ever mount another Normandy Landings operation! In fairness to Ellwood, he does write:

But we must not kid ourselves. Pressures on the defence budget since the end of the Cold War have left us with one deployable division of 35,000 personnel who could not fight a sustained campaign without allied support.” [The Sun]

In fact, Britain on its own would have been unable to do “D-Day” even in 1944 without huge American, Canadian (etc) assistance. The very first day, ie “D-Day” itself,  airborne soldiers (mainly British, American Canadian) numbering 24,000 were dropped into battle. Behind them, the rest of the 150,000-strong assault force.

That of course was not the entirety of Allied forces, which numbered in the millions across the world. The total of engaged participants on all sides has been estimated at 100 millions.

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

Britain now (as Ellwood writes) has 1 deployable brigade of 35,000. That, leaving aside rear echelon and headquarters contingents of every kind, is pretty much the usable British Army now, though official figures state 81,500 regulars and 27,000 reserves (former TA):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Army#Modern_army

Compare the figures: in 1945, over 3 million (in the Army alone, not including other arms); in 1980, just before the Falklands campaign, 222,000 (mostly regulars, at that); even in 2010, 155,000. Now the Army (regular and reserves) numbers about 108,000 officially and probably greatly fewer in reality. The Army, Navy, Air Force are losing 2,000 men and women a year.

Then there is the lift capacity, by air and sea. Hugely depleted.

The fact is that the UK could not even repeat the Falklands re-invasion today, the British Task Force fleet then consisting of 127 ships, including 43 Royal Navy vessels (the last figure not being the whole of the Royal Navy by any means). Today, the Navy only claims about 74 ships worldwide, and only 31 of those are large combat vessels and submarines (the rest are small vessels such as minesweepers, patrol launches etc).

In 1939, the Navy had over 1,400 ships. That figure did not include supply ships. “By the end of the [Second World] war the Royal Navy comprised over 4,800 ships, and was the second largest fleet in the world” [Wikipedia].

I get the impression that there is a sizeable and entirely ignorant part of the British public (and it seems to include Gavin Williamson MP, until recently Defence Secretary!)…

…which actually believes that the UK could “take on” Russia, or China, or both! I see tweets urging British intervention in Syria, for example. Even in the (madly stupid) British bombing of Libya some years ago, the UK was dependent on French and Italian help.

These delusions have political consequences.

Update, 11 June 2019

Point proven? [see tweet below]. Note how this Bengali woman, Ash Sarkar, persists in saying “we” and “us” and “our” [British], just because she was born in the UK (assuming that she was)… talk about “cultural appropriation”!

Update, 21 July 2019

Well, the Iranians have seized British-registered ships in the Gulf of Hormuz. Bad boys. Oh, wait…turns out that not one of the officers and crew are British, and anyway this is tit-for-tat because the British seized an Iranian ship at Gibraltar “on suspicion” that it might be breaking the sanctions regime imposed basically by the USA. In fact, this whole incident was caused at root by that idiot Trump having torn up the agreement with the Iranians re. uranium enrichment. Looks like “perfidious Albion” has been superseded by “unreliable Yankee-Doodle”…

The relevant point here is that the UK Foreign Secretary (Jeremy Hunt) is talking about “consequences” for Iran, but in reality all that the UK can do is rattle sabres a little and freeze funds in the City of London. Britain cannot do much in terms of gunboat diplomacy for a very cogent reason— Britain has few gunboats.

Special Blog Post, To Honour Professor Robert Faurisson [1929-2018]

A (arguably the) pre-eminent revisionist historian, and a man of great integrity, Robert Faurisson has died at the age of 89. Predictably, the usual tasteless jackals took the opportunity to gloat and laugh on the Twitter echo-chamber and elsewhere. (((They))) give themselves and their character away so easily. Ignore them.

The work of this courageous fighter for truth will now be disseminated to ever-wider readerships. I start that here and now by posting the English-language edition of his unpublished book about the “holocaust” controversy etc.

There Should Have Been An Honourable Peace in 1939 or 1940

The Background

September the 9th, 2018. 79 years and 8 days since the famous German attack on the Polish radio station at then Gleiwitz; 79 years and 6 days since Britain (and so the entire British Empire) and France declared war on Germany; about 78 and a bit years since the German defeat of France, since the British retreat from Dunkirk; 78 years since the air Battle of Britain.

What weakens the usual System-history narrative about the history of those times is the a priori assumption or, if you like, a Grundnorm [basic underlying concept or belief, often unquestioned or deliberately made impossible to question], that the declaration of war by Britain and France was unquestionably both “the right thing to do” and unavoidable.

The typical, conventional System view, as displayed above, is of course grounded on an even deeper-held belief or Grundnorm, that is that the German government of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP was so evil that it had to be destroyed. That view (at the time and really until the 1970s at least –talking about British attitudes–) was based on the opinion that Germany was again trying, for the second or third time in memory, and as a continental power, to take over mainland Europe. More recently, the more Jewish-influenced attitude has held sway, because of the Jewish control or veto over the worlds of publishing, academia, politics, msm etc in the West: that Germany had to be confronted and defeated because of its policy re. Jews.

The whole “Germany had to be defeated because of the ‘holocaust'” nonsense is of quite recent date. Not often (i.e. never) mentioned to the brainwashed masses or to their equally brainwashed offspring in British schools, is the fact that not one of the world leaders or the most important military leaders (e.g. Churchill) made any mention of “extermination programmes” or “gas chambers” in their spoken remarks or post-war written memoirs. The Jewish-Zionist element has taken control of the historical narrative and completely twisted it. That is why “they” hate any historical revisionism. They present a weight of mutually-quoting fakery as if it were a weight of evidence. In any case, even the Zionist propagandists do not claim any German “extermination plan” or programme for the Jews  until 1941.

Returning to war and peace in 1939-40, we see that the big picture shows a world far more than today split between European empires. The British Empire ruled between a quarter and a third of the world. Most of the rest (leaving aside the Soviet Union, the USA and China) was ruled by other Europeans: empires of the French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Belgians. The depredations of the early imperial days had begun to give way to the idea of stewardship. The native peoples were beginning to be looked after, the wildlife the same. All that (which became so positive in the 1950s) was ruined by the Second World War and its aftermath. Decolonization, globalist finance-capitalism etc have been disastrous for the peoples and environment of Africa, South America, Asia.

In Europe too, we see how disastrous was the decision to go to war in 1939. Immense destruction, huge loss of life (some estimates say 80 million), cruelties, hardship etc. Also massive economic dislocation.

We often hear half-baked nonsense about how “the war” stimulated inventions and technological progress. Most of this is either not true or is at best half-true. In both Europe and USA, huge strides were being made in the 1930s. What the war did was to change priorities: planes built for speed rather than comfort, housing built on a utilitarian rather than an aesthetic basis etc.

In the UK, much nonsense is talked about the Welfare State in this regard. In fact, social housing (which had existed in limited forms for centuries) was being created on quite a large scale in the UK of the 1930s, particularly in and around London. As for the NHS etc, that was already being prepared in studies etc, though the war may have concentrated minds and so on.

The Phoney War

The Phoney War, also called the Bore War and (in Germany) Sitzkrieg, lasted from September 1939 to April 1940. At that point, few people, even in the armed services of either side (meaning UK/Germany) had been killed. Any bitterness or venom (mainly on the British side and stirred up by relentless propaganda) was small compared to what existed later. There could, after Dunkirk, have been an honourable peace, an armistice. Germany could then have turned its full attention to destroying Stalin’s regime the following year. The Russian people would eventually have come to a concordat with the German Reich. Only the Jewish commissars etc would ultimately have lost out.

Conclusion

Britain lost out hugely by going along with Churchill’s ridiculous adventurism. Terrible loss and turmoil during the years of war, 10 years of “austerity” after the war ended. The perceived “need” (in fact a conspiracy) to import blacks and browns in the 1950s and thereafter in order to make up for those killed and injured in that wholly unnecessary war. Slow poisoning of the folk.

Britain and France declared war on Germany, ostensibly, to protect the independence of Poland. It never happened. Poland was split between the German Reich and the Soviet Union at first, later taken entirely by the Reich, then later still taken entirely by the Soviet Union. Instead of one or two weeks of war, Poland was strafed by 6 years of it. Only since 1989 has Poland regained anything like full political sovereignty. When I myself visited Poland on several occasions in the late 1980s, one still met older Poles who might mention those worthless guarantees of 1939.

Had an honourable peace been found in 1939 or 1940, the British Empire would have wound down more gradually, as would the other European empires. There would not have been so much war and misery across the world, the American cultural death-impulse would not have been so powerful and destructive; also, the environment would not have suffered anything like as badly. Above all, Europe would be fully European and have a fully-European future.
