Russian forces must hit strategic military and infrastructure targets, not civilians.
Once such laws are passed, in any country, the Jew-Zionist element abuses them via “lawfare” to shut down free speech.
As fraudster and “grifter”, “Jack Monroe” is in a league of her own.
The James Bond character was of course absurd, albeit brilliantly so, and Ian Fleming knew very little about real intelligence work, despite having been made, via his family connections, Personal Assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence (and given an instant naval officer rank) during WW2: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Fleming#Second_World_War).
Fleming was an early example of the type of which we now see frequently, especially in UK politics. Talked a good game, full of unmerited confidence (born of his family money, Eton education etc), but pretty ignorant, and more of a bullshitter than anything.
Having said that, the James Bond character of Fleming’s books, twisted and moulded by the film-makers, took on a life of its own (the James Bond of the books is a rather unpleasant and bitter character, more like Fleming himself, in fact).
The films, at first very loosely based on the Fleming books (though later not based on any books) have become, over about 60 years, a quite major industry; they reflected, however distortedly, a definite Englishness. Now, like England itself, the James Bond concept and character has pretty much been stamped out of shape. A pity, in a way.

“Affected“, not “effected“. Never mind. The point is made.
It is tragic. I was just thinking about where the UK would be, in what state, had it not been swamped by waves of mass immigration and births to immigrant mothers. There have been other factors too, but the one that stands out is the demographic change since the 1960s.
It is true that white British people still comprise about 80% of the UK population, but the change has still been huge. Particularly so since the 1970s/1980s. A tipping-point was reached, sometime in the past 30 years or so, since when Britain has degenerated in most respects quite swiftly.
Even in the 1970s (which I well remember, having been born in 1956) Britain had so many paths open before it. The Second World War and its effects were receding into history, the standard of housing was improving, and the cultural life was lively. The Welfare State was generally improving the lives of millions, and there were improvements in areas such as educational access, pensions, disability benefits and services etc.
Now, in the past few decades, one feels that the world has shrunk, Britain has shrunk, and the possibilities open to British people (especially the “young”, say <30 years old) have also shrunk, and shrunk accordingly.
Look at housing. The pressures of mass immigration, births to non-Brits, commercial speculation, and lack of vision, have combined to create, over large areas of the country, huge tracts of “boxes for people”, without sufficient garden space, road access, or service areas (shops, libraries, parks etc).
There is a pervasive sense of the population being almost entombed alive in their inadequate —and increasingly inadequate— housing.
The “revenge evictions” and “no-fault evictions” by residential landlords have become a scandal, millions of people are living in poorly-repaired, poorly-maintained, homes, and the governments of the past couple of decades have done nothing to change that. Indeed, they have made it all worse.
Britain is going back in some respects to the socio-economic conditions of the era before the mid-Victorian age, in that what mattered then —and increasingly now— is how much capital was (or is) bequeathed to people from parents etc. Jobs or positions held were secondary.
Today, we have a society in which young people have to borrow large amounts just to go to a (so-called) university, and it is no argument to say that most will never have to pay it back, because the precondition for non-repayment is that the ex-student will never have a sufficiently high income to trigger repayment! What a commendation!
Basic work scarcely pays at all, once taxes and the costs of simply being in a job (travel, clothing, inflated housing costs etc) are taken into account.
Even “professional” work now pays only a modest amount on those preconditions. We see now strikes and protests by the junior ranks of the medical and legal professions.
Even in simple economic terms, it is clear that Britain would be such a better place had the influx never happened. The British people would be, as individuals, hugely better off in everyday financial terms. Not only in financial terms, though; also, in terms of vision, society, and further possibilities on the national and individual levels.
The question though, is how to get from where we are to where we want to be.

The sad thing in the wider sense is that even those decrying the way things are have been brainwashed into saying “what’s racist about XYZ?” rather than saying “whether XYZ is ‘racist’ or not is of no matter“…
“Mr Martin was jailed for killing Fred Barras, 16, and seriously injuring Brendon Fearon when they broke into his isolated farm in 1999.
Some locals quietly praise Mr Martin for taking a stand against crime. One said: “We had four break-ins. I know you’re not supposed to say this, but what he did stopped the burglaries.”
He added: “I don’t agree with the police and the legal system. They’re supposed to be impartial but they’re far from impartial.”
In fact, the isolated home of Mr. Martin was broken into at night by a group of “gypsies” (in fact, UK-resident Irish so-called “Travellers”), not (as the Mirror report implies) only two. He managed to get two of them (one killed, one injured).
The incident happened in 1999. I supported Mr. Martin then, and I have not changed my mind since then. He should have been given an award for courage, and certainly not charged with anything.
A one-sided point of view in its implications, but still true.
I had and have little time for Corbyn, but the fact is that he was destroyed as Labour leader by a pack of malicious and politically-motivated Jew-Zionists and/or Israel lobbyists, posing (some of them) as the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”.
I was just engaging in my frequent not-guilty pleasure of looking at the Google Map and Street View site. Very addictive.
I have blogged before about how much London has changed since I stopped living and/or working there. I was a resident —on and off— from 1976 to 1998 in various sections of the metropolis, though mainly in Little Venice, and also for a while in 2001-2002, when I lived on the edge of London, in Higher Denham, Buckinghamshire, working out of both Mayfair (off Berkeley Square) and “legal London” (Gray’s Inn Square, where I was leaseholder of chambers in 2002; ironically, also the site of my unmerited, wrongful, and also unlawful disbarment in 2016, the so-called Bar Standards Board being situate in the same square).
Looking at Street View, I see that the area around St. Giles’ High Street (between Charing Cross Road and Holborn) has been hugely redeveloped. The Oasis open-air swimming pool, which I used a great deal in the 1980s, is still there, as is the old church of St. Giles-in-the-Fields, but a large development of new buildings occupies the area opposite that church, part of which area once had a government building without signs or markings, the car park of which always contained a number of unmarked Commer vans in green or grey, in the 1970s and 1980s used extensively by State organizations.
That building was possibly an outstation of MI5 or GCHQ, but I have no idea whether either was the case. The street entrance always had a standing sign just inside, displaying the “security status” or “threat status”.
I notice that a nearby site, that was once occupied by a pub or bar carrying several different names over the years, is now occupied by a new building containing, inter alia, some pizza joint called Vapiano. I often used one of its former incarnations, in the 1980s, when it was a marble and glass bar called the Cafe Munchen; I was a regular customer at that time.
Looking very different, that place had also (in the early 1960s, I think) been a location for a few scenes in a Peter Sellers comedy film about a group of London crooks (I am unsure about the film title).
A little way further afield, I noticed that the Punjab restaurant (est. 1946), on the corner of Neal Street, is still there. Another place that I occasionally visited, though later, in the early 1990s.
My having Saturn in Scorpio does tend to make me visit Memory Lane a lot, perhaps too much.
Theresa May, prior to becoming an MP, spent 20 years at the cheque-clearing organization, BACS. Her case is far from unique. Take a look at my “Deadhead MPs” series on the blog. Tip of the iceberg. Many, perhaps most, MPs cannot even be described as “mediocre” overall. Deadheads.
The UK political system actively rejects anyone with real depth.

I have wondered, since this time last year, whether the main Ukrainian cities will be left standing at the end of the present conflict.
Idiots, and indeed malicious idiots, such as Marina Purkiss, think that free speech being taken away does not affect people. Wrong. I know exactly how the attacks on free speech, and the general attacks on British culture and our (former) way of life, affect people, including me. I also know exactly (((what))) and (((who))) are (mostly) behind those attacks.
Part of the problem in the UK is that the police often do not understand the law and, moreover, often think that their powers under the law are either (as in the above case) fewer or lesser than they actually are, or greater than they actually are (and I have been the subject of the latter incomprehension more than once over the past decade, and have had to put policemen and policewomen right on various points).
Little Matt Hancock trying to be the big bad scorpion with a sting in its tail.
You see rubbish on Twitter about this, all about how New Zealand’s economy is “booming” etc. Well, the statistics lie, and for a very obvious reason: when you shut down a country almost completely for 2 years, the economy nosedives. Any activity at all after that seems, superficially, to be strong growth.
“Then there is her approach to Covid. Initially, the world bought into the myth that her government was a top performer in eliminating the disease.
The truth, of course, is that it’s relatively simple to quarantine remote islands. And having introduced a strategy of isolation and hard lockdown at the start of the pandemic, Ardern clung to a zero-Covid policy that was way beyond the edge of reason.
Her government shut down businesses, closed entire towns if a small outbreak of the virus occurred, and forced New Zealand citizens who happened to be abroad when the pandemic struck to apply to enter their own country, with only a tiny number of places available via an online lottery system.
At first, the policy was popular, with Ardern using Facebook Live sessions to communicate with the nation in a crumpled jumper, after putting her daughter to bed, in a manner that struck a chord with the public. Indeed, in the 2020 election, her party polled almost 50 per cent.
Yet, as time went on, opposition to this sometimes cruel policy (for which exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy) grew, with critics lambasting a sluggish vaccine rollout and pointing out that the only world leader more bloody-minded in holding on to a strategy of eliminating Covid at all costs was communist China’s president Xi Jinping.
The crescendo of division and unrest saw huge demonstrations outside parliament.“
“Huge demonstrations“…which were not covered at all by the BBC, Sky, ITN, or the “Lugenpresse” System msm outlets of the UK; and what about that bit re. “exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy“? Peak pseudo-socialist nonsense. As in “the virus is so dangerous that only the ultra-wealthy and —of course— ‘celebrities’ can do whatever they like”…
It reads more like a parody than real government policy, even if it is from a joke state like New Zealand.
Try telling the truth, though, to the msm drones in the UK, let alone the Twitterati mugs. They are closed to the truth, on almost any subject.
Jacinda Ardern was just another Blair-type NWO/ZOG puppet (in fact, she worked for a while as a “SpAd” at Westminster, under Blair.
The whole interconnected milieux (msm “journalism”, “fashion”, TV/radio “comedy” and “drama”, in fact TV generally) should be purged, and I do not just mean deprived of its riches and platform.
Perhaps the New Zealanders could institute a “Jacinda Day”, akin to our “Guy Fawkes Day”, in which an effigy of “Jacinda” might be immolated in some way that produces few “emissions”… A kind of “damp squib” fire that produces little light or warmth. Symbolic, you might say…
“Far right“? Oh, they mean people not totally brainwashed by NWO/ZOG propaganda:
Only (sort–of) joking… but then, Sinn Fein/IRA has become a joke anyway, a kind of —superficially— more militant SNP or Plaid Cymru.
The police should be investigating all that. Why should a black woman in Bristol be facing trial on very similar facts yet “Jack Monroe” not only not investigated but even still being promoted by some of the msm?
A typical “Jack Monroe” supporter might be a woman of about 60 years old, not badly-off, pretty ignorant but thinking herself rather educated, and living in some suburban or rural area; a Guardian reader, pro the Kiev regime, pro the facemask nonsense, needless to say “anti-racist” etc. Or a male, or LGBTQXYZ, equivalent, possibly retired, possibly a business owner in a modest way, probably “woke” etc. Certainly not “poor” or “struggling”.
The first part of that is plainly not libellous even on its face.
The second part may or may not be.
How is saying that “Jack Monroe” “makes more money than the Prime Minister” libellous at all, even if not true? Answer: it isn’t.
So she claims to be “still suing” Con MP Lee Anderson. I wonder. So far, according to Lee Anderson, he has not received any pre-action correspondence as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.
An action in defamation must be brought within a year of the triggering cause, but even then is still expected to be brought expeditiously; in lieu of that, there may be costs consequences.
“Jack Monroe” still has, in theory, 3-4 months in which to bring proceedings, but I doubt whether they will be brought or, if brought, would be successful.
Can anyone rely on any statement put out by “Jack Monroe”? I think not.

The “Jack Monroe” scandal rolls further on…
My guess is that “Jack Monroe” may even get a solicitor to send a “Letter before Action” to Lee Anderson, which will help her to continue to plead for money im various ways, and keep her in the news, so maybe attracting more mugs to subsidize her. There will, however, be no actual issuance of proceedings against Lee Anderson or Martin Daubney. If I am wrong about that, and proceedings are actually issued, that will eventually turn out to be a very expensive error for the “Bootstrap Cook”.
Actually, she goes lower. Lee Anderson claimed that 30p can feed someone at least for a day or part of a day; “Jack Monroe” claims 11p! Is there a prize for the first idiot or “grifter” who claims to be able to make a 1p lunch?
When I was a practising barrister (1993-2008, though with extended breaks when I was overseas or engaged elsewhere), conducting hearings by video link had either not yet started, or was in its infancy; certainly I never encountered it, though I did some telephone hearings in latter years, usually from home. They involved civil/commercial interlocutory and/or procedural matters. Awkward when the cats miaowed loudly.
I should add that, after the early/mid 1990s, I did almost no criminal cases, except the odd corporate matter, representing large companies accused of breaching the law in various —mostly rather minor— ways.
Now, however, video link hearings in criminal cases are commonplace, especially in respect of sentencing hearings. It saves money, and inconvenience. But…
I think that sentencings especially (but also any examination or cross-examination of witnesses, including the accused) should always be carried out face-to-face in open court. The judge can see, a relatively few feet away, the demeanour of the person talking, in a way that is just not the same via video link, however good the technology.
Can it really be right that a defendant be sentenced, often to a term of years, while in a prison and at the end of a video link? I think not.
I think that the secret ruling circles want Sunak, in part because he is a non-white. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. The message being “Britain is now a multikulti country; even the Prime Minister is non-white“…
Ireland has gone the same way. Until recently, the PM there was a half-Indian called Varadkar (he is now Deputy PM). I noticed that, in the recent explosion in Donegal, in a tiny village far from anywhere, two of the deceased were Africans. Shows how much migration-invasion there has been in Ireland in recent years (and pitiful “nationalist” Sinn Fein bends the knee to it all).
To state the fairly obvious, Labour is not popular; the Conservative Party is unpopular. Labour’s seeming popularity is purely by default.
The Conservative Party has been dumped by the voters because it has just got to a point at which its incompetence and absurdity just outweighs the doubts many have about Starmer, his Friends of Israel Shadow Cabinet, and Labour as a whole.
“Boris”-idiot came close to this point but did not quite reach it. Whether it was his contrived Eton-Oxford gloss, the slightly-easier economic circumstances, or whatever, he was just about holding the electoral line. Once he was chucked out, and especially once it became clear that Britain was heading for a train crash, the electorate woke up to the cold air, looked at Liz Truss and woolly-head Kwarteng, Therese Coffey etc, and was appalled.
A vote for Labour is a vote for more mass immigration, for Jew-Zionist control, for blatant pro-Israelism at the top of government, and for cuts imposed on pensions, State benefits etc. Despite that, Labour is riding high because the people are becoming desperate for anything that looks, however implausibly, like a government, rather than a bunch of headless chickens.
In any case, mass immigration and migration-invasion has continued under the “Conservative” governments since 2010. All that has happened has been a torrent of empty words by such as the Indians (could you make this up?) Priti Patel and Suella Braverman.
The Conservative Party has been held up until very recently by two factors: Brexit (despite that having been totally mishandled), and the fact that pensioners and near-pensioners (broadly, the 60+ age group) voted Conservative, overwhelmingly.
Rishi Sunak suspended the Triple Lock, “for a year” supposedly. That alone diminished the support for the Conservative Party. Labour climbed above Conservative in the opinion polls for the first time in years. Sunak failed to become Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister because the “grey vote” within the Conservative Party defected to Liz Truss, who promised almost everyone almost everything.
Now we see that even the “grey vote” is abandoning the Conservative Party, as I have been recently predicting. If your only real reasons to vote “Conservative”, as a 60+-aged voter, are a. the value of State pensions and benefits (including Pension Guarantee Credit); b. to stop or restrict mass immigration; and c. law and order, then the Conservative Party has let you down royally on all three.
This would be the moment for a social-national party to strike, if there were one. The absence of one is both infuriating (for me) and tragic (for the British people and their future).

Wallace can now ride his horse, sabre aloft, towards Moscow. Pathetic.
Starmer-Labour is just a possibly-more-competent version of what used to be the Conservative Party, in some ways, before the latter became the home of Oxford and Durham university dropouts, and ceased to be able even to pretend to be a serious party of government.
Naturally, the old-style Labourites are jumping ship; the rank and file at least have been doing so for about three years, since the Labour Friends of Israel regained control.
The problem I have with Corbyn, Pidcock etc (well, one problem) is their mealy-mouthed attitude to the Jew-Zionist lobby that has stamped on them. As people say now, “call it out” for what it is; but they will not. They still pay lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, and support the basically Jewish organizations that have beaten them, such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, “Hope not Hate”, “United Against Fascism”, “Community Security Trust” etc.
How about “honestly questioning” Ben Wallace’s ability to be Defence Secretary on a different basis, i.e. that making the UK the bullseye of a Russian nuclear attack on NATO is a Very Bad Idea? Wallace, a former junior officer in the Guards, is just the sort of nincompoop who might, perhaps when in drink, precipitate a war with a power which has about 100 times our nuclear offensive capability.
Maybe. On the other hand, would the British electorate, at a general election, vote in large numbers for the Indian one-time-thought “clever boy” Rishi Sunak (and the rest of the Conservative Party MPs)? I doubt it.
Most people apparently still do not realize that the number one reason why the British economy has crumbled and is crumbling is because the stupid “panicdemic” measures of 2021-2022 included almost shutting down that economy for nearly 2 years, accompanied by a massive propaganda campaign.
Sunak was part of all that.
In any case, people vote primarily for a party, only secondarily for a party’s leader or a potential prime minister. The Conservative MPs are now seen, I think rightly, as a total rabble.
I do not think that it matters much, electorally, whether Johnson or Sunak prevails.
Strange. I still think that Labour has become a party without a purpose (as blogged in the past) but the Conservative Party, which was apparently solidly seated in the (mainly) south of England, propped up by (mainly) the middle-aged and elderly, and by the ranks of house-owners seeing their paper capital increase year on year, has now thrown all that away and become the System party most likely to disappear.
Actually it makes again the well-known point that (as Lenin is supposed to have opined) “to destroy a country, first destroy its currency“. I am not so sure that Lenin ever said or wrote that, but no matter. We can also see what happened in the German hyperinflation of the 1920s.
There were both positive and negative economic effects. The hyperinflation, however, also had political effects, which continued to resonate throughout the 1920s and beyond. The Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 was the first major attempt by Adolf Hitler to seize power. The KPD (German Communist Party) also became powerful at that time.
The faith of the German middle classes, especially, in the currency, was shattered, and not entirely put back together after the actual hyperinflation had ended.
Their faith in the political system of the Weimar Republic was correspondingly weakened.
In the UK, the country was staring down the barrel of hyperinflation under the idiotic misgovernment of Truss and woolly-head. That seems to have been stabilized now, but at what cost? Terrible spending cuts “across the board”, we read (though, strangely, or perhaps not so strangely, “Defence”, meaning money sent to support the Jew Zelensky in Kiev, is probably going to be increased).
Can you believe that idiot Welby?! He should probably not be allowed out without supervision. It really is time for the thoroughly infiltrated Church of England to be disestablished.
Having said that, tweeter “@LesleyPollard1” seems to be another “migrants welcome” idiot. Those people will only learn, and maybe not even then, when Britain is a complete non-white multikulti dustbin, a mixture of black Africa, North Africa, Kabul, Pakistan, Calcutta and a rundown version of New York City. Oh, and China.
As I blogged earlier today, if voters prefer Labour to Con even on immigration and Brexit, and maybe on pensions and (almost certainly) on benefits, then that might leave the Conservative Party with literally 10% of the general election vote, and that might mean only 50 Con Party MPs left. Looks as though idiotic Archbishop Welby should direct his prayers, for what they are worth, to almost all Con Party MPs except Liz Truss (who, in her very safe seat, would probably survive even a 90% cull of those MPs).

The unexpected —by some— degree of support for Johnson is a political grasping at straws. Look at the Conservative Party standing in the opinion polls. 14%! Even if that level of voter intent were to double by the time of a general election, it would still result in a massive Labour victory; and there is no guarantee that voter intentions will improve for the Conservative Party.
The MPs backing Johnson are doing so because they do not believe that any but a smallish minority of the British electorate will vote for a party led by a globalist Indian billionaire. “Boris” (though in fact not entirely English) looks and sounds at least sort-of English, is a known quantity even if useless, and so is “the Devil you know”, and has to be more popular with some of the public (if only as a clown or jester) than Sunak.
Of course, it is desperate.
Onto the bonfire with him!
The stake needs to be in the globalist, not in the ground.
Import millions from other races, import their politics, their ways of life, their corruption etc. Fact.
That last clip shows the reaction of Liz Truss when someone became unwell at the Con Party hustings a couple of months ago. Thank God that the stupid “ho” will not now be in charge of the UK nuclear deterrent. Look at her! Panicking…
All the same, I doubt that it is very strictly supervised.
I have never actually bothered to watch GB News, but was just reading and watching, or listening to, some clips it posted on Twitter. Mostly about how “Boris”-idiot should again take on the unearned and unmerited mantle of Prime Minister.
Quite a few of the GB News presenters seem to be black, including some Ghanaian woman who had a job a year or two ago persuading ethnic minorities to submit to the “Covid” “vaccine”.
Controlled opposition? Scarcely “opposition” at all, in my view, and from what I have seen.

Then, in the end, you will still have to “take up arms against a sea of troubles“, in the Shakespearean phrase, because the bastards have their orders, and the ones giving those orders are not going to just give up.
Unpacking the result, this was always, and obviously, going to be between the Conservatives, who had held the seat since it was created in 1997, and the LibDems, with most msm “experts” forecasting, until Election Day itself, a modest Conservative Party win. Even prior to 1997, the area broadly covered by the constituency had been Con since 1923.
The LibDems put out a huge effort on the ground, I have read.
The Conservative vote-share almost halved, from 60.2% in 2019 to 38.6% at the by-election. Still it shows what a deeply pro-Con constituency Tiverton and Honiton still is, that nearly 40% of those who voted were still willing to vote Con despite Boris-idiot and his Cabinet of Clowns, and despite the former MP having stepped down after having been caught viewing porn in the Chamber of the House of Commons during a Commons debate.
“Those who voted“…ay, there’s the rub. Little more than half of eligible voters turned out to vote (or sent in postal votes). The turnout in 2019 was about 80%. Conclusion: a very large number of former Conservative voters abstained, unwilling to vote LibDem but also unwilling to vote Con. 2019— nearly 36,000 Con votes; 2022— approx. 16,000 Con votes. Boris-idiot must be the main reason for the turning-away by former Con voters, though the peccadillo of the smug farmer who was until recently the MP was another factor, almost certainly.
The Conservative candidate (a woman, after the former male MP’s peccadillo; the thinking is so obvious, you can almost see the Con wheels turning) was a poor candidate; indeed, “thick as two short planks”, like so many State schoolteachers today, but that had little to do with the result.
The previous LibDem high point was in 2001 (35.8%).
What we have here is widespread dissatisfaction and indeed disgust at the present Boris-idiot misgovernment, which resulted at the by-election in much voter-abstention, probably much switching from Con to LibDem, and some tactical voting by those who might formerly have voted Labour.
For me, the most interesting aspect has been the collapse of the Labour vote.
The aforementioned tactical voting no doubt had much to do with the fall in Labour support from 19.5% to 3.7%.
The fall in numerical terms was even more stark— 11,654 Labour votes in 2019 compared to a mere 1,562 at the by-election, out of a total eligible electorate of about 76,000. The same candidate, too.
Interestingly, Labour’s highest vote-share in the constituency was not in the peak Blair years of 1997 or 2001 but in 2017, when Corbyn was Labour Party leader. 27.1%.
The lowest Labour share before this by-election came in 2010 (8.9%).
This is not, by any stretch, a good result for Jew-lobby or Israel-lobby puppet Keir Starmer. Even in 2019, the same Labour candidate managed 19.5%, over five times better than at this by-election. Some of the fall was no doubt by reason of (arguably) intelligent tactical voting; not all, though.
The four pseudo-national parties standing only managed 2.3%, taking all four together (Reform UK being top, at 1.1%).
Conclusion? “Conservatives” despised, and fake “Labour” also despised. As to the LibDem victors, as on previous occasions they have managed to present themselves as some kind of alternative, in the absence of a real one.
The Wakefield by-election requires less analysis. The Labour candidate won easily. Factors were the imprisonment of the former (Con) MP for sexual assault on boys, and the general disenchantment with the Boris-idiot government, in a constituency which has returned Labour MPs since 1932, with the exception of 2019.
The high point for Labour was 1966 (65.39%). Sometimes, however, the margin of victory has been narrow. In recent decades, the Labour vote has been in general but slow decline. Even this by-election resulted in only 47.9%, about the same level as in most recent general elections.
It seems clear that, while the Labour vote-share did increase from 2019 (47.9% from 39.8%), that increase is quite modest. The Conservative decrease was rather greater. Seems that abstentions of former Con voters, rather than switches to Lab, were the drivers here.
As for the plethora of other candidates, only a local Pakistani independent saved his deposit (7.6%). The Yorkshire Party managed 4.3%.
The five broadly “nationalist” or pseudo-nationalist candidates got about 5% as a bloc, the top being Reform UK, on 1.9%, the lowest being Jayda Fransen, standing as Independent, with 0.1% (23 actual votes, out of a turnout of 27,466).
Labour will no doubt hail the Wakefield by-election result as “the Red Wall coming home” or some such. I think not. The Labour result was unspectacular in all the circumstances. I note that the Labour candidate was white English (albeit gay, so ticking at least one “woke” box). It may be that many English voters voted for him partly on the basis that he is white (Wakefield is about 90% white).
The two by-election results will be an unwelcome if not unexpected blow to Boris-idiot, who is hiding in Rwanda (presumably unable to find a fridge this time).
All the same, Labour’s performance has been pretty underwhelming; dull in Wakefield, and (despite the tactical voting aspect) disastrous in Tiverton/Honiton.
I should say that, if the Conservative Party can ditch Boris-idiot, and then somehow manage to find a leader at least not completely hopeless, they might well be able to fend off a Labour victory in 2023 or 2024.

“The world is not without kind people” [Russian proverb].
What a bad joke news such as that displayed above makes of a century of “Irish nationalism”. Sinn Fein members on their knees for “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, masked, muzzled, and pathetic; and Ireland ruled by a gay half-Indian. De Valera must be spinning in his boggy grave.
As already said herein, the idiot posing as Prime Minister was unable to find a fridge in which to hide, so went to Rwanda.

Russian has taken Severodonetsk. Ukrainian troops still alive and not captured have withdrawn.
We hear less now from msm (and UK military) mediocrities about how Ukraine is winning the war etc. Reality is breaking through, gradually.
Hard to believe the number of “bring it on” idiots in the UK, whose “analysis” seems to consist of “if we get hit, so does Russia“, as if that makes the incineration of their own homes, families and way of life (and themselves) somehow OK, because people in Russia will die too. Of course, they are brainwashed by warmongering propaganda, as were their ancestors in 1939 and 1914 (etc). That, however, was before the nuclear missile had been invented.
Ukraine is not our fight. Ukraine has only been a “state”, a more or less “failed state”, for 30 years. It is shambolic, corrupt, Jew-ridden to the core, and is no “free” “democracy”. The existing “government” of the Jew Zelensky has no legitimacy, and has arrested, and even shot, its most significant opponents. Eleven or more political opposition parties have been closed down by force. Its citizens are among the poorest in Europe, too.
Britain has no historical or other ties to Ukraine, either.
This is a full-on NWO/ZOG strategic and propaganda operation.
When I was in the USA in the early 1990s, I was struck by the fanatical feminism that pervaded the society, and which fanatically supported abortion. Both connected trends were largely if not entirely triggered, from the late 1950s, by Jewish women writers and “activists”. “They” always seem to be at the forefront of the collapse of white Western societies. They try to do the same in Russia but have encountered pushback.
Again, “they” are at the forefront of support for and organization of the migration invasion.
Ha ha! Send those idiots at Glastonbury to the Eastern Front! “Diesen Befehl kommt direkt vom Fuhrer!“…
Read that report and then look at the sentence— 3 years, very lenient for what the defendant actually did— meaning that the defendant will be out in 18 months, and possibly earlier.
Why are such untermenschen even in this country, even in Europe? Unnecessary, unwanted, and —at best— useless.
I have seen Ukraine develop as a “fake state” and indeed “failed state” over the past 30 years. There were even strong possibilities, ~23 years ago, that I might spend time there (maybe two years or longer, in Kiev and/or Odessa and/or elsewhere).
Ukraine, a “state” for only 30 years, has been a festering mess of corruption and shambolic maladministration. Also, very much exploited by Jewish interests.
As it now is, Ukraine has control over only —about— three-quarters of its territory, and over about half of its 1990’s population. It has little manufacturing industry still operating, its agricultural produce cannot be exported, and it is almost entirely dependent on American and other foreign aid.
I have received no news about Alison Chabloz, but note that the custodial part of her unjust sentence (for having lampooned supposedly-typical Jewish behaviour in cartoons, animations, and humorous song) comes to an end on 29 June 2022, exactly 2 weeks from today.

What happened to Ireland? The IRA and Sinn Fein may have been a movement I mostly opposed in the 1970s and 1980s, but it seems that the Irish are now completely supine, ground down under the heel of, almost unbelievably, a gay half-Indian puppet of the New World Order and Zionist Occupation Government [NWO/ZOG].
…says a Guyanese Sikh woman. Even the blacks and browns that are living comfortably in the UK seem often to hate us, our race, our culture, our history.
Be warned, though (looking at that Sinn Fein result). Sinn Fein are now about to take over in Northern Ireland. Why? Because the birth-rate of the Republican/Roman Catholic community has for many decades outstripped that of the Unionist/Protestant majority which will soon not be a majority.
The same, mutatis mutandis, in England. The blacks and browns are, in the time-worn phrase, “breeding like rabbits”. We are gradually being outnumbered. Yes, England is still maybe 80% White Northern European, but for how long (and how many of the whites are, in effect, “wiggers”)?
“Manon des Sources” used to retweet me before a Jew cabal plotted to have my Twitter account removed.
You still hear stupid people who want to believe that abortion is about removing something not really human, a kind of “jelly” (I have heard that a couple of times in the past from those who prefer comforting illusions to truth).
As noted previously, interesting to see how many people, tweeting a year ago, are now “cancelled”, along with their tweets.
The above map from Sky News shows the position fairly clearly.
Russian forces are dominant in the south, both on, and inland from, the Black Sea. The same is true in much of the east and northeast but, apart from the southeastern city of Donetsk, which was already under Russian control, no major or even medium-size cities have been taken in the regions beyond the Black Sea.
Donetsk is the fifth-most-populous city in Ukraine, with over a million inhabitants [all population figures as of pre-invasion], Mykolaiv [former Nikolayev], 9th-largest city, has or had over half a million, Mariupol, 10th-largest (exc. Crimean cities), has or had over 400,000 people, Kherson has or had over 280,000, Melitopol about 150,000.
There seems to be a split in the Russian strategy: in the south, by the Black Sea and Sea of Azov, brutal and desperate fighting for the urban areas as well as the areas around and beyond the cities and towns; in the north and northeast, cities attacked by missiles and artillery, and encircled or being encircled, but not yet taken.
In the northeastern and northern areas, the Russians are encircling cities or skirting them, but in the south trying to take them, because in the south, what is important for the Russians is to control the entire Black Sea coast and littoral zone inland for some distance.
I still think that Kiev will be prioritized ahead of Odessa, but if there is a week or two of standoff in and around Kiev before the main bombardment and then assault starts, the Russians may try to retain the initiative by pushing to and possibly into Odessa. Odessa is the third-largest city in Ukraine, with a (pre-invasion) population of well over a million.
As I write, there is news of Ukrainian counter-attacks “in several areas“, but as yet no detail. Whether the Ukrainians can sustain any counter-offensive is doubtful, in view of their resupply problems.
Looking again at the map, the areas of focus for the Russians seem to be Kiev and the Black Sea/Sea of Azov coasts. Other areas are not prioritized at present. For example, there has been no push to take or even encircle Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk], the 4th-largest city (a million inhabitants before the invasion).
As for the inland areas west of the river Dnieper, and as far west as the borders with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova, though the Russians have attacked some key targets, using missiles, there has been no attempt to gain ground there, so far.
The slightly conciliatory tone of Zelensky yesterday, admitting that Ukraine cannot join NATO, could be read as desperation. NATO has supplied anti-tank and portable ground-to-air missiles to the Kiev regime, but no planes, and no tanks or other large armour (it seems), and will not be imposing a no-fly zone.
The upshot of all that is that the forces of the present Ukrainian government are reduced to fighting a guerrilla war. In that, they may have considerable success against the unwieldy Russian forces, but in the end the superior Russian strength must begin to tell. The fact is that, unless Russian forces are very much reduced in numbers, equipment and resupply, they must surely prevail, taking the major cities (or whatever is left of them).
…and, most importantly, a fraction of those arriving “legally”…
The “refugees welcome” dimwits and virtue-signallers then start howling about how pay and State benefits are too low, and about how there are not enough houses, trains, roads, schools, NHS hospitals, doctors and nurses, and the rest.
Cue jokes from some people about “stupid Irish” etc, perhaps, but who are we to talk, when you see the state of the UK now? And yet more flood in, daily.
It is hilarious, though, albeit bitterly so, to reflect that the Irish have fought, literally, for centuries, to resist occupation by the English (and, in Northern Ireland, the Scots), only to allow themselves to be occupied without a struggle and without a fight, by the sweepings of Africa and Asia…
Sinn Fein has become one of the most pathetic examples of all that.
As Hitler said about the USA, “half-judaized and half-negrified“. Hitler was right…
That is of a piece with the rest of the “cancelling”, virtue-signalling etc around today. A kind of “iron fist in velvet glove” sub-Stalinism. The hypocrisy is everywhere, as well. You have fake outfits and people such as the “Free Speech Union”, GB News, Toby Young, James Delingpole, Julia Hartley-Brewer, and the rest.
When did you hear or see any of those parasites stand up for my free speech? What’s that? I am not prominent enough? Well, I was prominent enough in late 2016, after my wrongful (and in fact now admitted to be unlawful) disbarment. Google “Ian Millard, barrister” and you will see that there was plenty of coverage of me in the national press, including the Daily Mail and Independent. Nothing defending me, though, by the usual “free speech” controlled opposition types.
The same goes for others of a broadly social-national type, such as satirist Alison Chabloz. Not a word in support of her free speech from Toby Young and his type.
Well, since almost everything of any use, discovered or invented or developed in our world over the past two or three thousand years, was discovered etc thanks to white European or at least post-Aryan people, that’s our whole culture and civilization “cancelled”.
The blacks cannot create such a civilization; in fact, they cannot even maintain it when it has been given to them, as can be seen in Africa, Haiti, and elsewhere. They can only exist in it (when white Europeans and/or some others exercise control), or destroy it (if left in charge).
Andrew Neil seems to think that Ukraine in the winter/spring of 2022 is akin to Stalingrad in the winter of 1942-43, i.e. heavily sub-zero. Not so.
There may have been some defective tyres, I suppose, but it seems more likely that that convoy was “stuck” where it was because the entire invasion was sluggish.
It merely prolongs and intensifies the agony of Ukraine.
Some people have still not woken up to the fact that the migration-invasion is not somehow accidental, or the result of negligence of some sort, but a transnational conspiracy that reaches up to the highest levels of Western society. Google “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan” or, indeed, “White Genocide“.
The main news seems to be a Russian approach from the Kherson area towards the considerable city of Kryvyi Rih [former Krivoy Rog, “Curved Horn”], the 8th-largest city in Ukraine, with a pre-invasion population of about 612,000. This is the only city of any real size barring the way to Kiev from the south, to the west of the river Dnieper.

Here we go, and we are only just into 2022, the most significant year since 1989…
…and so Jess Phillips, Yvette Cooper etc can continue to virtue-signal without any danger of having to walk the walk…
That’s why BBC Crimewatch was done away with, too.
… and that degenerate, Israel-Firster, and Common Purpose drone, actually pontificates on the ethics of others! What a Pharisee!
I have not had the vaccine(s), and have no intention of having any. Not necessarily because of any sinister aspects attaching to the vaccine(s); those claims may or may not be accurate. The fact is that the vaccines probably ward off the dreaded virus only somewhat anyway, as the virus mutates.
In any case, in the part of southern coastal England where I live, only 8 persons have died in the past month “within 28 days of a positive test”. Most of the 8, if not all, will have died from other causes (even car crashes!); it is very doubtful whether even 1 died “from” or even “with” Covid-19. That is in an area of 291 square miles, with a population of 180,000.
In other words, in the past month, in my part of England, 1 person has died “within 28 days of a positive test” (n.b. not “of” or even “with” Covid-19) out of every 22,500 inhabitants.
The whole “panicdemic” thing has become absolutely ridiculous in the UK, not least the facemask nonsense.
The slow collapse of Ulster Unionism. Ironic. The Official IRA, and then the Provos, tried to storm into the future with their Armalite and other weapons, only to be defeated, tactically, in the field, but all the time, the Irish Republican community’s women, pushing out more babies on average than those of their Loyalist counterparts, were shifting the boundaries strategically, as the general Republican community’s numbers increased vis a vis those of the Loyalist community. Looks as though the tipping point is near.
There we have it— the Westminster Bubble. John Rentoul just cannot see that the BBC has, in the colloquial, “blown it” with the bulk of the British public, just as has the Labour Party. The BBC was both generally trusted and generally at least not disliked, but that was 20-30 years ago, Mr. Rentoul…
Unusually, John Rentoul beat me in this week’s quiz, scoring 7/10; I scored only 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 5, and 9.
I have been hostile to “Boris” for many years, since he was (underwhelmingly) MP for Henley. Others have now caught up; the public has not— yet. I think that it has to happen before too long, though. The part-Jew public entertainer cannot fill the boots of a prime minister. Speaking of boots, an article now compares Boris-idiot to Caligula:
What does Boris Johnson, Boris-idiot, care? A part-Jew, part-Turk, part God-knows-what, born in New York City, brought up mainly in the USA and Brussels, whose stepmother is a very wealthy Jewess. What does he care about Britain and the people of Britain? He is only interested in money, at root. He is not a legitimate Prime Minister, and anything is justified to remove him.
“People wanted to kick the government and Sinn Fein provided the shoe to do the kicking,” says Christy Parker, a journalist from the beautiful but de-industrialised town of Youghal in county Cork. He speaks of the “chasm” between the elite benefiting from Ireland’s impressive economic progress and the large part of the population that has been left behind.” [The Independent]
That was my impression too, though I have not been to Ireland since the mid-1980s (and before that, the late 1970s), and a lot of water has flowed since then.
In fact, that is one reason why the UK should develop a real social-national party, because it just might come about that the shopworn System parties will flag at the very moment when the British people will be desperate for something, anything…
Returning to Ireland, where does it go from here? Sinn Fein, which fought only a proportion of the seats in contest, nonetheless won a plurality of the popular vote: Sinn Fein 24.5% (37 seats), Fianna Fail 22.2% (38 seats), Fine Gael 20.9% (35 seats).
The Irish Parliament, the Dail, has 160 seats including the (non-voting) Ceann Comhairle (Speaker). 80 seats are required to form a coalition government; alternatively to create a “confidence and supply” arrangement less than a coalition.
In other words, one of the first three parties will have to join with one of the others (or both of the others) and/or smaller parties. Sinn Fein thinks that it can get by via an extended coalition with a number of smaller parties. Alternatively, the two main System parties together would only be 7 or 8 votes (the last Speaker was from Fianna Fail) short of a majority.
Sinn Fein would have to bring on board almost all the small parties and most of the (19) Independents in order to rule.
Emily Thornberry is out, thus leaving Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy as remaining contenders. At present, Keir Starmer looks like a shoo-in. I doubt that he would excite many voters, but it may be that in 2022 or 2024, after years of Boris-idiot as PM, that very dullness might even be a selling point…
Stop all farm subsidies. They are a major reason why farmers and landowners pay £10,000 an acre for agricultural (non-building) land. This system (despite some “stewardship” subsidies or grants) is anti-environment, overall, paying money merely for owning land, while the farmers carry on as free businessmen in most respects. Public money going to private pockets, deep pockets at that.
Adolf Hitler said that “the future of electricity generation lies in the winds and the waves” [see Hitler’s Table Talk]. All we have to do now is to reduce the aesthetic impact of wind farms and the impact they have on bird life.
I think that I score four points out of twenty. Five points if my return to the UK from Australia in 1969, aged 13, and aboard the old Oriana, is not labelled a “cruise”. I suppose not, though it had most of the same characteristics, so make that five points out of twenty.
Many will be familiar with the name of Mike Stuchbery, the “antifa” cheerleader who is said to have instigated a kind of “home invasion” at the house of Tommy Robinson’s wife (Stuchbery spins it differently) in 2019. Stuchbery then got a nasty shock when “Robinson” turned up at Stuchbery’s own house (both were located in the Luton area)
There has been water under bridges since then. “Robinson” has done (more) time in prison, while Stuchbery fled with his “German” wife to Stuttgart, where he now lives.
I have mocked Stuchbery’s constant claims to be a hard worker holding down (as he ludicrously pretends) “three jobs”, when it is obvious that he is what his detractors claim, a kind of grifter who relies mainly on donations from supporters, State assistance, and also a working wife (as I apprehend).
Not that there is anything wrong with those three methods of subsistence, an sich. It does grate a little, though, when Stuchbery makes his claims of being a grafter rather than a grifter. He seems to have plenty of time to travel around and, on weekday morns, stroll into Stuttgart for the odd melange and, as it might be, some Schwarzwaldtorte or Sachertorte (actually, the latter is my own favourite…).
I happened to be looking for the first time at the Byline Times, the online “newspaper” headed by the writer Peter Jukes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Jukes]. This is one of Stuchbery’s “three jobs”, I believe. Well, last year (2019), he wrote, by my count, 19 fairly short pieces for Byline Times. So one article every 2-3 weeks. So far, in 2020, only one article. I cannot imagine that that pays much, if anything.
I believe that Stuchbery also takes tourists around Stuttgart and teaches some English as a foreign language.
Actually, Stuchbery reminds me of the conscientious objector, member of a religious cult, during WW2, who was asked how he intended to make his living if not in the armed forces. He replied, on the form provided, “God will provide. (wife working)“!
An underwhelming read, frankly. Britain has declined hugely since the 1980s, let alone early 1970s. Stuchbery has not the personal experience (he only arrived from Australia in 2014, though apparently he was born here), or historian’s —or journalistic— skills, to make much sense of trends and events.
Stuchbery thinks that copying bits out of books or tourist pamphlets makes him a “historian”, just as he thinks that scribbling for platforms such as Byline Times makes him a “journalist”. It’s risible. Look at my blog about him to see a few howlers that he has made.
I have had to explain at intervals that being opposed to “antifa” inciters and enemies of free speech like Stuchbery does not mean that I am in any way a supporter of Tommy Robinson.
At present, I am waiting, with great interest, for Stuchbery’s supposed and proposed legal case against Tommy Robinson (for which a crazed woman called Roanna “@antifashwitch” has raised about £11,000 via GoFundMe). I think that, like the Jewish Messiah and the “cheque in the post”, the lawsuit is unlikely to ever come to pass…
