Russia and Ukraine have always been, if not one entity, then at least bound together. The very word “Ukraine” comes from a root meaning something like “outskirts”, in other words an outer part of Russia. Little Russia, as it was once called. In the 19thC, Tchaikovsky called his Second Symphony, the “Little Russian“.
A typically-meaningless example of Twitter logic: if you removed the “black and brown” vote from UK elections (since about 1990), you would never have had the Labour governments of the 1997-2010 period, and you would in fact never have any Labour-label government again.
The forces of Evil usually pose as “good”.
Behind their would-be dictating, though, the guilty politician-puppets are afraid, which is why they are always whining about their supposedly inadequate security.
The SNP has proven to be a good example of the old maxim of Lord Acton about how “power corrupts“. First that old fraud Salmond, who turned out to be a sex pest and/or rapist (though, “lucky in his jury”, he was acquitted, formally); then came would-be dictator and would-be “world leader” Nicola Sturgeon, that silly little woman. Not to mention that Paki-stani, whose name escapes me, and who wants to introduce Stasi-style interference with free speech, even in private homes.
The SNP, which in any case is not really “national” at all, should be kicked into the bin.
Chuck a few logs on the fire from me!
“Kids“? Is that a typo? I was thinking “n**s“.
As a group, they cannot create a civilization, and find it hard even to live in one created by others. Their more natural role is to destroy anything decent that those others have created and maintained. In our society, and as a group, useless and quite negative.
Starmer, at best, is just a puppet. Bin him.
White Genocide, in essence.
To coin a phrase, “me too“…in fact, I do not know anyone at all who has ever watched GB News. Does it really have an audience?
There are still a couple of English left, at the back. “Hello, Robinson Crusoe!“
My view of Enoch Powell has not at all changed since the 1970s. A highly-intelligent, highly-educated, very courageous man, who was also a political idiot.
In this long BBC assessment of the Jew “oligarch” and billionaire, Roman Abramovich [see below], penned by one Justin Parkinson, the words “Jew” and “Jewish” appear not once. Not one single time: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-60708450.
According to the BBC, the oligarch-thieves are all “Russian“…and many poor saps that know no better probably believe the lies that are broadcast by BBC, Sky, ITV News etc.
I suppose that the ordinary UK person actually believes that the so-called “Russian” oligarchs really are Russian. In fact, few are.
So it appears that the Science and Technology reporter for the Independent cannot distinguish between a personal disagreement and a situation where silly, “entitled” pseudo-“green” crazies, making a ridiculous propaganda point, block people from getting where they need to go on public roads.
The only quibble I have about that tweet is the use of the word “animals” in the full post. Don’t tar animals with the brush of the guilt of degenerate sub-humans.
Incidentally, while I generally dislike the death penalty (as such), in rare and particularly-egregious cases of the above sort, I just think…”let them burn“…
A fairly hard-hitting video by Paul Joseph Watson, “@PrisonPlanet”. I do not rate Watson very highly from the strict political point of view, but his interesting vlogs have awoken many, at least from unquestioning acceptance of the propaganda pumped out by the System.
This time, the crime involved crazed lesbians, one of which (the actual murderess) was from some (unspecified but looking at the photo probably Irish tinker-“traveller”) “gypsy” origin, according to the newspaper report.
Is there more of this sort of terrible abuse now, as compared to, say, 1960, or 1930? I do not know. The breakdown of society, and social norms, may be part of the problem, but there is a dearth of reliable information.
The cost of the panicdemic/scamdemic “measures”and relief
Conservative Party candidates have won every election for the seat since 1832 (the seat was not in existence between 1885 and 1983), and the Conservative Party vote peaked in 2019 at 62.7%.
Labour, though traditionally usually coming in in second place, came close to ousting the Conservative candidate in 1997; only about 4 points separated the top two that year.
In 2019, the Labour candidate received a vote-share of 22.1%, but the same candidate had scored 31.1% in 2017.
The Conservative Party vote-share has risen uninterruptedly since 1997, whereas the Labour vote has generally declined; the 2017 Labour vote-share was higher than in most years.
It follows that, should the “unthinkable” occur and Shastri-Hurst not be elected, the shock to the Conservative Party (and “Boris”) would be seismic.
Among the 14 candidates are Reclaim Party (the Laurence Fox vehicle), Reform UK (the latest Nigel Farage pop-up), the rump of UKIP, and Heritage, as well as Green Party and the LibDems, whose best result in effect (as Liberal Party) was a second-place 31.6% in 1983.
In the past, it was likely that serious tactical voters would go Labour rather than LibDem, Labour having the higher likelihood of success in the seat, but that is an open question this time. The bookmakers put the Conservatives and LibDems neck-and-neck, and it seems that confidence is not high in the “Boris” camp. Having said that, bookmakers are often a poor source for election predictions, their odds reflecting (mainly) bets placed, many of which are placed far from the constituency.
Naturally, newspaper reports such as that, showing that the LibDems have a good chance, tend to encourage tactical voting.
As to how much the Conservative vote will be impacted by the smaller quasi-conservative parties such as Reform UK, Reclaim, UKIP and Heritage, hard to say but probably no more than 20% altogether. Still, that notional 20% could be crucial.
Turnout is forecast to be low, not least because many usually Conservative voters seem to despise “Boris” and his misgovernment, and so, unwilling to vote Labour or even LibDem, may simply abstain.
My assessment? I think that the LibDems must have a chance, anyway.
The usual Conservative vote may not turn out (though many will have voted by post already), the overall turnout may be low (favouring other parties), the majority of voters in such a seat will never vote for post-2010 Labour, and the four smaller baby-con parties will tap votes which would otherwise go Con.
The LibDems are not quite as zealous about Covid “restrictions” and “measures” (such as the facemask nonsense) as are the present Government and its Labour “enablers”. That may help the LibDems.
The Conservative candidate is non-white (apparently half-English) in a 95% white English constituency, though that may be of only peripheral importance, looking at non-white “Conservative” MPs elsewhere. I had never heard of him until today but, reading about him, he seems to be very much a “head over heart” person; the voters may not warm to him.
There again, many people just want to give both the “Boris” circus and the Labour “enablers” (who have just saved the Government’s bacon yet again) a good kick. That has to favour the LibDems. Still, fairly open even now.
It will be interesting to see how misnamed “Labour” does, too. About 31% in 2017, but only 22% in 2019 (both times under Corbyn). Now, under “Covid” zealot Starmer? If Labour cannot get at least 20%, it will be significant.
So to get a peerage now, if you cannot donate a million to a System political party, you have to do noteworthy things such as…set up a charity or “good cause” which closes after a year or two with all its monies “gone” under suspicious circumstances, then fail to become either an MP or Mayor of London, and then…oh. that’s it, except that it helps to be black or brown these days.
At least Stuchbery has given up describing himself as “historian“. Now it is “journalist/content editor“…
A rigged contest between an incompetent government and the official opposition that is enabling most of that government’s dictatorial “Covid” laws and regulations.
I have blogged before about potential minority Labour governments which would depend on SNP support. Problem would be that the SNP would like another Independence referendum, or even actual Independence. The hypothetical minority Labour government could not of course grant the latter without a referendum. As to the former, the SNP would probably make the holding of such a referendum a sine qua non of any Commons support.
Were a Scottish Independence referendum to be held, and were the SNP to win a majority for breaking away from the UK, as soon as the break happened, there would be no SNP MPs at Westminster. That Labour government would then fall.
On the figures modelled, Labour could then govern with LibDem support, but recent elections have shown the Conservative Party far larger in the Commons than Labour. No SNP might mean no Labour government ever again. An interesting conundrum for Labour, if those modelled figures were to match electoral reality in the next 2-3 years.
That Tom Harwood person is obviously a “slithey tove”, and careerist, who is quite knowingly “controlled opposition”.
Pretty sad that a government can use the Whittys and Fergusons to give faked “credibility” to their agenda —or rather the agenda of a transnational conspiracy of which “Boris” and his clowns are mere puppets— and then use scribblers and talking heads to spread the fake news.
For some reason, far more hits on the blog today than usual; several hundred, in fact. The other unusual statistic is that two-thirds today are apparently from Germany, which is very anomalous. There are usually a few hits from Germany, but not hundreds! Deutschland erwache!?
For those who may be interested, this blog usually gets about 80% of its hits from the UK; the rest come from all over the world, though most are from the USA, Australia, and a few other countries (France, Germany, Canada, and —oddly?— China are usually represented). I have had hits from almost every country, even places such as Burkina Faso, Paraguay, and (once only, I think!) Antarctica. Perhaps Adolf, emerging from an Antarctic opening from the hollow Earth (by submarine or flying saucer?), with devotees of the Welteislehre! Only joking…
Early evening music
The atomization of the population, and the sophisticated tools now in use for repressing any collective political or socio-political dissent, may lead to a wave of “lone wolves”, unless a proper social-national movement comes into existence soon. That possible wave of lone wolves would be a pity, because only a social-national movement can save us.
Just imagine…that could, and in fact would, be President of the USA if Biden were to snuff it while in office! Still, look at Biden himself. Come to that, who are we to talk, looking at Boris-idiot, Gove, and the rest of that pack of clowns?
I would compare these venal MPs to members of another old-established occupation, but at least those others give their customers pleasure, and/or a presumably required service, and at least the public does not end up footing the bill.
I did not know that, not that that matters, I not being a voter in North Shropshire.
I have a better and more just idea, but do not think that I can express it. I might add that I am surprised that Griffin, a Cambridge graduate, cannot spell the word restaurateur.
Already, Oxford is very different to what it was, not in the time of Zuleika Dobson, or that of Brideshead Revisited, but to what it was in the early 1960s.
I recall going once or twice with my mother in or about 1962 to some kind of Oxfam volunteer thing on, I think, a Saturday (we lived between Reading and Wallingford, so not hugely far from Oxford). I recall tables strewn with donated clothing in some kind of church hall or the like. People were sorting them, I think.
I do remember fairly empty roads, even in Oxford itself. I think we drove past the famous meadow track where the 4-minute-mile had been broken in 1954; my mother remarked on it. Anyway, the point is that the city and surroundings seemed uncrowded, quite different to the congested Oxford of today, where driving and especially parking is a nightmare.
Inflation 5%…not very long ago it was about 2.5%. Then we have the “proposal” to increase the pension age more rapidly than had been planned before the “panicdemic”.
Still think that “furlough” payments, and the rest of the “Covid” madness, came at no cost to the individual citizen? Think again…
Incidentally, the hall where that noble performance of Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony was recorded, on 7 October 1944, was destroyed by Allied bombing only weeks, or even days, later. There is now nothing left of the Beethoven-saal but a few stones and a couple of plaques. Wikipedia has the date of its destruction as 1 January 1944, which is probably a mistake (it may have been 1 January 1945).
Overall impression? What an incredible “cuck”, in the American vernacular, that man is! Actually, his manner reminds me of another weasel, now deceased: Cecil Parkinson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Parkinson]. There is even a passing physical resemblance:
The above picture shows Parkinson when aged 75. When younger, he looked a good deal more like Starmer, in my opinion.
I doubt, however, that Starmer is a shit, in the personal realm, on anything like (if at all) the level that Parkinson was:
“Parkinson died from colorectal cancer at The London Clinic in Marylebone, London, on 22 January 2016. He left nothing in his will for his daughter Flora: in April 2017, it was reported that Sara Keays was preparing to sue Parkinson’s estate to continue to gain support for her daughter’s 24-hour care, for regular payments had ceased a few months after Parkinson died.
Parkinson’s daughter, Mary, was found dead at her home in Wandsworth on 10 December 2017, aged 57. Police did not treat the death as suspicious, and it was later reported that she had committed suicide.” [Wikipedia].
Apart from the (to my mind) physical similarity, Parkinson had something else in common with Starmer, who is (at an educated guess) a freemason. Parkinson was apparently an “active freemason” [Wikipedia]. It would be surprising if Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions, were not a freemason, though I concede that I have no direct evidence that he is.
I ought to add that I once knew a woman who was seated alongside Parkinson at a State banquet, some time not long after the scandal with Sara Keays. That woman said that Parkinson was quite sympathetic in his manner. Maybe he went down better with women; I always thought that he deserved a good kick.
Reverting to that Nick Robinson interview, obviously Starmer is not a clown and pathetic waste of space in the “Boris” Johnson mode, but actually I can see why he has not really cut through to the public, despite Johnson’s incredible lack of ability and competence.
Starmer, like a good mid-range lawyer, makes the right noises: Channel migration invasion must be dealt with by “cross-border co-operation“, and the “upstream causes” dealt with, said he.
What does that mean? “Upstream causes“? So…wars and socio-economic problems in places such as Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, Afghanistan, black Africa etc? How will Starmer “deal with”, or cure, those? Answer came there none, methinks.
The only thing that Starmer looked at all passionate about, or even interested in, was so-called “anti-Semitism”, with the focus on his Jewish wife and half-Jewish children. I saw no real interest in (or policy concerning) the huge poverty that does exist in the UK in places, made worse by continuing mass immigration. Housing problems, the same.
It may be that Starmer does take an interest in those social, and so political, problems, but if so he failed to actually convey any great interest. That is of importance in a supposedly “democratic” political leader.
Hitler talked about “dirty democratic politicians“. We are now in a contest between the sheer incompetence and corruption of the “Boris” regime, and the —if you like— “managerial semi-socialism” of a Keir Starmer Labour offering. No wonder the opinion polls show a stalemate at present.
Looking again at Parkinson’s Wikipedia entry, interesting to note that he achieved high office despite having come from unmoneyed, modest, and indeed humble, origins. Something increasingly rare in our own day.
Quite. The facemask and “vaccine” zealots display a pathology that is quite incredible at times, and which will of course be given full rein yet again, now that the Cabinet of clowns has ordered mask-wearing in shops, on trains etc from Tuesday.
As many have pointed out, masks in supermarkets but not in crowded pubs…The whole thing is just mad. All because (we are told) a “new variant” has appeared which may (or may not) be “as dangerous” as previous “variants”. Meaning those variants that killed 1 in 1,000 (if that) of the UK population. Madness but, on some level, planned madness.
I cannot believe that Farage retains even the slightest degree of credibility with anyone but, sadly, there probably are maybe rather dim Daily Mail readers, or Daily Express readers (if any still exist), who would still follow him.
I have only known personally two people who have knowingly contracted “the virus”. Two people! In nearly 2 years! Both in 2020. One was my late —nothing to do with “Covid”, incidentally— and then 98 y o mother-in law, who only knew she had “the virus” because she was routinely tested while in hospital for another, and completely different, problem. She had no symptoms, despite her age, infirmity, and existing medical conditions, and was discharged a few weeks later. Like so many others , she only contracted “Covid” because she was staying in one of the NHS’s shambolic hospitals.
The other person I know who has had “Covid-19” is my 20-something Australian niece, living in London, who was advised to take paracetamol, drink water, and rest! So much for the (unused) emergency “Nightingale” hospitals etc! She lost taste and smell for a week or so, had a few other symptoms, but soon made a full recovery without the need for any NHS medical assistance at all, unless you count the “take paracetamol and drink water” “advice” (given over the telephone).
All to do, really, with scaring the people to accept a biosecurity police state, so that “the Great Reset” can proceed from 2022-2055.
That ridiculous “Femi” creature was hoping to become a Labour MP, I think, and thousands of white, and even educated, Twitter twits seemed to give him credibility, about 2-4 years ago, but most people soon saw through his complete nonsense, so he remains living with his affluent parents, and pretends to be some kind of socio-political “influencer” on Twitter. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole. Note that Wikipedia calls him “British”…(apparently he was born in the UK).
Forget whatever that evil woman, Priyamvada Gopal, may have said about Israeli puppet Priti Patel; more to the point, the Gopal woman is an enemy of the British people, their history, race and culture. There are, in the real (not the strictly legal) sense, traitors riddling Whitehall.
Just heard 25 mins of his history podcast. What a total “cuck” for the Zionist lobby… a silver-spoon “favoured nephew”…
I shall not bother with his stuff again.
Apropos of that, the woman interviewed was terribly excited about a British Intelligence bod of (mainly) the 1920s and 1930s. These people never see the wood for the trees. Yes, such spy bods were and are very active, but the big picture is that Britain could have joined with the German Reich to rule much of the world, but instead of that decided to declare war against the Reich. As a result, Britain (with its big friends USA/USSR) beat Germany into the ground, but also lost both its Empire and its world role, and set itself back economically for decades.
As for the rest of the world, the Second World War was disastrous. Famine, population upheavals, civil wars, premature decolonization, environmental degradation. The effects are still rippling out.
Now? Well, we hear much about the supposed “threat” from Russia —non-existent were it not for Russia being prodded constantly by NATO (NWO)—, and of course “terrorism” (including the actually or effectively non-existent “far right” sort) while the UK is actually being destroyed from within, daily, eaten away by treacherous termites, not to mention the connected migration-invasion, and births to non-whites.
The Augean Stables need to be cleansed: msm outlets, Parliament, academia, other areas too.
The big picture is what matters, not spy games by minor-public-school careerists.
In these times of increasing State and Zionist-lobby repression, we in England must remember that, though people may be repressed, the idea of a better future cannot, ultimately, be repressed.
A reader of this blog sent, via the Comments section, a link to, inter alia, a haiku [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku] he had written. I was thus “inspired” to write one for the first time in years. It is in the English haiku tradition, 17 syllables over 3 lines:
The empty words From the mouth of “Boris” Seem even emptier now
On this day, a year ago
As my blog’s regular readers will know, I usually steer clear of Scottish internal politics. I do not purport to know a great deal about Scottish politics, and have never even been there. Having said that, the SNP and its peculiar cranky little leader, Nicola Sturgeon, cannot be entirely ignored.
The SNP, which had almost no MPs until six years ago (it took about 40 years just to get one), took off in 2015, and is still in precarious power north of the border.
The SNP benefits from not being Conservative, Labour, or LibDem. Simply that. Scotland was once rock-solid Labour, but a few years of Blair’s pathetic, smug, and dishonest henchman, Jim Murphy (and general trends), put paid to that. Labour now has only one Westminster MP from Scotland.
As the Spectator article notes, only half of the Scottish electorate (in fact, at present, less than half— 47%) favour Independence, the number one policy of the SNP.
Surely Scotland could not and would not break away from the UK if only a tiny majority voted to leave the Union?
In reality, what if even , say, 57% favoured Independence? Would that really be enough to tear Scotland from England? It might be far more divisive in Scotland than the Leave result was in the UK overall in 2016.
The SNP has not done so well in its other areas of responsibility, a fact that might explain why it has only 64 seats out of 129 in the Scottish Parliament, a plurality but not a majority (the SNP governs with the 7 votes of the Green Party): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Parliament.
No radical conclusion from me. I do not see the present Con, Lab, or LibDem parties enthusing Scotland much in terms of Westminster elections, so it seems that the SNP will remain the only game in town, north of the notional, if not “national”, border.
“The Great Reset” starts in only 5 weeks…33-year cycle. 1923. 1956. 1989. 2022. 2055…
The LibDems have been washed-up since they “enabled” the misnamed “Conservative” Party, under part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne, to impose wrongheaded austerity on the poorer two-thirds of the British people.
As for Reform UK, a pathetic “controlled opposition” vehicle, but a straw which may be clutched at by many in the absence of a real social-national party; the lineal successor to Brexit Party and UKIP.
Green Party upswing is another “grasp at straws” sign of voter desperation or frustration.
Well, this week brings another victory for me over political journalist John Rentoul; I scored 7/10 as against his 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 5, 6 and 7.

System politicians and msm talking heads (and the medical establishment) are still pushing the “it’s an existential threat to humanity” narrative, and that is all you will hear and see on the BBC, Sky, ITN etc. They have painted themselves into a corner with their panic, lies, and obfuscations.
“We are Chinese, if you please! We are Chinese if you don’t please!...”
The mask zealots are truly insane and/or brainwashed. I had to argue, briefly, with a cheeky Ch… I mean Chinese… student in Waitrose in mid-2020. Told the interfering little alien to get lost.
(((They))) truly are “the simulacrum of the human“…
Telling…The people do not want either main System party “leader” as Prime Minister. The people really want social-nationalism, but they themselves do not even know it, because the repression on free speech, and the lies of the ZOG/NWO msm, have them completely confused.
On that modelling, Labour would need support from both the SNP and the LibDems to form even a working minority government; the Conservative Party would in theory be able to govern with SNP support. However, the price of that would be, at the least, another Scottish Independence referendum.
Writing as advocatus diabolus, I suppose that the Conservative Party could buy the SNP by offering actual Independence without a referendum, but that might cause a political explosion north of the border, where about half of the Scottish voters are opposed to, or at least not in favour of, “independence” (independence from the UK/England, but not necesssarily from the international finance system, NWO/ZOG, NATO etc…).
Still, continuing in the cynical vein, and as I have blogged before, if Scotland were “independent” (from the UK), that would pretty much kill off Labour as a party of (“rump UK” or England/Wales) government. Once you take out the 48 SNP MPs and the one Labour MP from the Commons, as well as the 4 LibDems and 6 Conservatives, it becomes clear that Labour would never be able to form even a minority government, unless there were some kind of “peaceful revolution” in England. On the above modelling, Con 289, Lab 264, LibDem 7. (plus other parties).
Saw an old (not sure how old) “celebrity” version of The Chase quiz show. Featured Jewish-Zionist zealot Rachel Riley, who seemed to be pretty ignorant, though not much worse than the others. She even got a very simple maths question wrong (actually not wrong, because she failed to answer). Ghastly former MP, Edwina Currie, was the only one to be knocked out before the end. Surprisingly, though, the remaining three won £66,000 for charity, so that was nice, anyway.
Those who watch TV quiz shows will know that the “celebrity” shows are invariably cringeworthy, and lead one to speculate why hugely well-paid celebrity faces are often so hugely ignorant. I have seen few such “celebrities” acquit themselves well. One of the few who did was studiedly foppish interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Llewelyn-Bowen]. I think that that was also on The Chase.
Heard part of an interview with Keir Starmer, conducted by Nick Robinson. Starmer’s first point, even before it was explored further by Robinson, was how he had done everything he could to stop “anti-Semitism” in Labour (I think that his pleasant phrase was “tear out“…).
Seems that Starmer’s only real interest is in bringing aid and comfort to the Jews, despite the fact that they are numerically few (250,000-300,000), and so relatively insignificant in electoral terms.
Starmer admitted that, at home, his family does celebrate Jewish customary holidays. Sadly, Nick Robinson was too polite to ask whether Starmer, on such occasions, wears the little skullcap (“yarmulka“) which I believe (rightly or not) is de rigueur.
On radio (the interview was also shown on TV), Robinson’s intro mentioned the problem Starmer has with seeming credible to the public were he to appear, as Prime Minister, on the step of 10, Downing Street. I am scarcely favourable to Starmer but, surely, after Boris-idiot, almost anyone would be credible, or at least not seem worse?
I may listen later.
This is now descending into total madness (again). A “variant” of a virus that kills about 1 in every 1,000 in the UK (and 1 out of 4,000 in the world), and this stupid yet evil Cabinet of clowns is apparently going to mandate the facemask nonsense again! We are pretty much at war now, not with “Covid” but with this evil Con regime, its equally evil fake “Labour” supposed opposition, and with a transnational conspiracy with several (to use Biblical language) heads and/or horns.
So the police shut down mild heckling of “antifa”-type “useful idiots”? Reminds me of the Trafalgar Square disgrace which continued for years in the 1980s, with amplified yelling 24/7 outside the South African Embassy, while the police, on political orders, allowed it and in fact facilitated it.
“Birmingham men“?! Hardy ha ha…
Good grief!The gall and madness surprises even me! A consultant cardiologist is “fact-checked” by some bimbo with a “degree” in…wait for it… magazine journalism!
If Greta Thunberg did not exist, it would be necessary for the international conspiracy to invent her. Oh, no, wait…

I did not know that that trial had started; if it has concluded, I have seen no report of it. As of today, she is still tweeting:
I hope that the Welsh teaching contingent teach the children of Wales how much better Africa was when Europeans ruled most of it. Especially between 1945 and until European colonies ceased to exist in the 1960s and 1970s. I doubt that that will be taught, though…
Claudia Webbe is ignorant, and as thick as two short planks.
If people never speak, they cannot spread “subversive” ideas such as free speech, freedom of expression, or the idea that Europe would be far better without (((certain elements))).
I rather like the tweets of @EternalEnglish. I urge any readers with Twitter accounts to follow that account while they can, before (((the usual suspects))) have it expunged. I might not agree with all of what he says, but, adapting the lyrics of “Meatloaf”, “nine out of ten ain’t bad”.
When I was a barrister practising from chambers in Exeter (2002-2008), I had contact with some of the Devon (and East Cornwall) hunting/shooting country set. Not necessarily “bad people”, but not particularly “good” either. Overall, just rather backward in terms of attitude, I should say.
(Q: is “laughter the best medicine”?)
I am no medic, but there has been, from the start, something not right about the whole System narrative around the Covid-19 “panicdemic”.
First of all, in early 2020, we were told that this was something almost akin to the 1970s British TV series, Survivors (no relation to the funny Alison Chabloz banned song of the same name): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivors_(1975_TV_series); incidentally, writing this, I notice that Survivors was remade in 2008, still with the same idea, i.e. that a Chinese lab releases a deadly virus, which spreads worldwide, changing everything…makes you think.
So, anyway, we were all thoroughly frightened in early 2020. However, measures such as the facemask nonsense were not implemented in the UK for about another 7 months. In some parts of Europe, notably Sweden, there was no panic, no facemask nonsense, all the bars and offices stayed open, and —quelle surprise— outcomes were better than in the UK and the other panicked parts of Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium etc).
Since then we have seen that, in the world as a whole (even on the very inflated and misapplied statistics used), maybe 5 million people have died of or, rather, with “the virus”, which figure sounds huge but is out of 8 BILLION people. In other words, roughly one person out of every 1,800.
In fact, most of the deceased had other life-threatening problems anyway, many have been very aged (thus with low immunity), and many have become part of the death-statistics simply because they had (unreliable) positive tests for “the virus” up to a month prior to their death (which might even have been in a car accident). Absurd.
The UK is now going to be hit with poverty and restriction thanks to the policies applied for nearly two years by part-Jew chancer “Boris” and Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak. Pensioners are going to be hit as far as they can be without alienating their mainly pro-Conservative Party votes entirely; taxes overall will be increased by stealth as far as possible.
Huge amounts that could have been spent improving infrastructure and/or the environment have been just squandered on nothing much, squandered for no reason.
The crazed “furlough” payments and other policies did not come free of charge, though the masses probably, in fact clearly, assumed that they did.
Interesting. Even less favourable than I would have assumed. A small sample, though.
A far larger sample than with the previous tweets, but once you adjust for the inbuilt Remainer bias on Twitter, the result is, in reality, probably not far off 50-50 again.
Keep chucking a few msm crumbs at Ash Sarkar and her cohorts, and the System will have no trouble from them, none at all. Give her a regular TV slot, and she will say (and probably do) almost anything…
Meanwhile, and while free speech in the UK is being destroyed by, mainly, Jew-Zionists, the BBC has seen fit to make a TV drama series, Ridley Road, portraying Jew terrorists, gangsters, and other thugs of the 1960s, as heroes.
Britain: the view from New York
A girl I once knew had a Jamaican record, the lyrics of which went something like “Execute de corruptors!“…
As Labour is now, its only hope of office is to get within about 50-60 seats of a Commons majority, and then to make a compact of some sort with the SNP and its MPs (numbering, at present, 45). However, the SNP would only make such a compact on the firm understanding of an early Indyref Mark 2. If that were to happen, and if, then, the SNP won such a second “indyref”, then the UK would break up, the SNP would no longer be in the Commons at all, and Labour as a party of government would be history.
Good point from Hitchens here. The point is valid also in respect of the Second World War. In the UK, great strides were being made in the 1930s in the areas of town planning, housing etc; the Depression poverty of the North was certainly not replicated in the South of England, generally speaking, certainly not in the late 1930s. The War spoiled much of the good that was happening. Britain only started to recover from its pyrrhic victory from or after 1955.
Multiply that by about £20,000 per person (including NHS services, educational services, legal and police costs etc), a modest supposition, and the cost exceeds £32 billion per year…
How polite we British still are! Try that in, say, Russia or France and see what happens! It would have been amusing to see the cars shown here roll slowly towards the virtue-signallers (who mostly no doubt live comfortable easy lives with their parents in some suburban or semi-rural enclaves), and then just keep on going…
A Victorian phrenologist would have a field day with Sajid Javid’s head.

Such goblins and gargoyles purport to rule over us…
My own view of cannabis (and other illegal drugs) and the law is that, while the clarity of complete decriminalization appeals, I despise drug abusers, and would prefer either drug abuse to cease to exist, or drug abusers to cease to exist (or be eliminated).
On the other hand, the present system is not working.
I am also cognizant of the fact that societies where cannabis use is prevalent tend to fall to pieces, as Hafiz, the Persian poet, saw happening in his own country many centuries ago, and as one can see in the areas of the world where cannabis use is prevalent; Jamaica, for one.
All the —mainly British— people I knew when younger (1970s, 1980s), those who regularly smoked marijuana, dropped out of society to a greater or lesser extent.
The old Stasi, in the DDR, would have loved “Covid passports”, “track and trace” etc.
That anti-white narrative or stream of constant msm propaganda particularly affects the blacks, who as a group tend to lack logical-critical thinking skills.
Radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (who blocked me years ago on Twitter when I exposed her ignorance on a point or two of law and procedure) seems to be turning a blind eye to the abuses carried out by the Jew-Zionist lobby. She has never said a word in support of the free speech of those attacked, and even prosecuted, at the instigation of packs of Zionist Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. I wonder why?
Yes, Laurence Fox and his “Reclaim Party” can be put in the same bin as all the rest of the controlled opposition: Reform UK, Brexit Party, UKIP, “anti-immigration” “Conservatives”, Katie Hopkins, “Tommy Robinson”, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad”, Delingpole, Toby Young and his fake “Free Speech Union” etc etc.
…meanwhile, in England, the people amuse themselves with football, rugby, tennis or cricket matches on TV, the latest meaningless msm gossip, the latest “celebrities” one has never heard of, and they worry about their booking of controlled, mask-wearing, machine-holidays of the upcoming summer.
Is that so? If the new Alba Party challenges the SNP in most Scottish consituencies, and effectively enough so that other parties come through the middle (Conservative, LibDem, Labour), then yes. It may well be, though (and I never claim great knowledge of Scottish politics) that many voters “up there” will choose between Alba Party and SNP, and simply dump the others.
Voters who are pro-Independence but anti-SNP. I do not know whether that is so, and whether there are even any pro-Independence but anti-SNP voters.
I am guessing, but it may be that Salmond’s quite recent sex crime trial has mortally wounded him politically, even if he was formally acquitted.
Either way, it does seem that “Independence”, however nebulous a concept that is in the Scottish context where a new Scotland might still be tied into EU, IMF, World Bank, NATO etc, is gaining ground with Scottish voters. That might have big geopolitical implications.
Well, I see that John Rentoul has again been defeated by me, this week scoring only 3/10. My own score was 6/10 (I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 9 and 10).
In 2015, the SNP captured 56 out of the 59 Scottish seats in the Commons; in 2017, 35 out of 59, and in 2019, 48 out of 59. “Scotland” therefored, supposedly “voted SNP”.
In reality though, meaning in terms of the popular vote, the SNP only scored 50%, 36.9% and 45% in those years.
Usually, when there is a successful popular movement for a country to leave a larger country or empire, there is a large popular majority for that: 90% in favour, perhaps; certainly 80%. In Scotland, any majority at all is likely to be small, maybe 55% for and 45% against.
I have been watching, recently, a TV mini-series (three episodes) called Zen, which though a British production and using some British actors and actressses, is filmed entirely in and around Rome. It is a about a detective called, oddly, Zen, who works in the Questura (the Italian police detective branch).
As with many other well-known fictional detectives (Inspector Morse, Inspector Alleyn, Wallander, Sherlock Holmes), Zen himself is rather an outsider, in his case because he is both incorrupt and from Venice.
Zen is a quality production in every respect, and maintains the seriousness while not omitting a small amount of passing humour here and there.
Having never been to Rome, I cannot say how well the series captures the grandeur-meets-squalor of that great and ancient city, but it seems a plausible representation, to me at least.
Until last week, I had never heard of Zen, which is from 2011. Apparently, the then controller of BBC1, a Jew called Cohen (why? Always…every single time…) decided to cancel the series because “there were too many male crimefighters on TV“…Why do “they” always ruin everything decent that they touch? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen_(TV_series).
I had a Twitter “account” from 2010, and started to tweet regularly and quite prolifically from 2011. I used my own name (“@ianrmillard“). The loud Jew-Zionist cabal on Twitter (really just a small number of unpleasant individuals) had me expelled from Twitter in 2018.
Since then, I have not posted on Twitter; I have no other, and never have had other, Twitter accounts. Recently, I have noticed that, if I look on Twitter, I sometimes notice accounts of people and organizations which carry the notice “Follows you“.
How and why, when I have no Twitter account? I am not very technical, so it is a complete mystery to me.
Part of the Big Brother “weekly clap”, I mean the reason why many did clap, was that there was and is a feeling that Britain was ceasing to be a community. People therefore, many people anyway, bought into the fake communitarianism of the “weekly clap” etc.
I wonder, though, how many, overall, did stand outside their houses clapping. Where I live, a tiny minority.
“Jonathan Sumption was once the epitome of the Establishment — a brilliant barrister who represented the Government in the Hutton enquiry, Supreme Court Justice, supporter of the Remain campaign and esteemed historian of the Hundred Years’ War. But then Covid happened.
Over the past year, his unabashed criticism of lockdown policies has turned him into something of a renegade. It is a development that mystifies him; as he sees it, his views have always been mainstream liberal, and it is the world around that has changed.
In the course of our conversation, the retired judge doesn’t hold back. He asserts that it is becoming morally acceptable to ignore Covid regulations, and even warns that a campaign of “civil disobedience” has already begun.” [UnHerd magazine].
Lord Sumption, a former Lord of Appeal and Justice of the Supreme Court, who has been treated recently as a crank and half-mad dissident by the msm. The problem that Lord Sumption faces is that he is talking on the ground of reason, whereas the “lockdown” fanatics, facemask zealots and others of that type (who, with a mob of scared rabbits, may well even be a majority of the population) are dealing in fear and unreason, which is inherently more powerful as a tool of persuasion.
“John Stuart Mill regarded public sentiment and public fear as the principal threat to a liberal democracy. The tendency would be for it to influence policies in a way that whittles away the island within which we are entitled to control our lives to next to nothing. That’s what he regarded as the big danger. It didn’t happen in his own lifetime; it has happened in many countries in the 20th century, and it’s happening in Britain now.” [Lord Sumption, on UnHerd/Lockdown TV]
Interesting to see and hear Lord Sumption has come to the same conclusion that I came to nearly a year ago about the various tyrannical “laws”, “rules”, “guidance” around “Coronavirus”. That is, that there will be little mass public anger, but more of a hidden or half-hidden defiance. In other words, “Yes, repeat No“…
As I have written often before, I never use the terms “Right”/”Left”, but the self-describing “left” now has nothing to offer people, no vision of a better society etc. It concentrates on “deplatforming” anyone described as “Right”, which apparently covers anywhere from Brexit Party, UKIP and the “alt-Right” wastes of space right through to National Socialists and those who, like me, postulate ideas and concepts which might form the basis for a society far in advance of where we are.
You can see it on Twitter, that element which is mostly pro-Corbyn-Labour, anti-Israel (mostly) while at the same time (mostly) supporting the Jewish Zionists! Also, connectedly, paying lip-service to the “holocaust” narrative etc.
Basically, the post-1989, post death-of-socialism self-describing “Left”, or pseudo-socialist position, has nothing at all to offer the people. It is an ideological and political dead end.
It occurs to me that Scotland might become a kind of “Slaka” if (when) it achieves faux-“Independence” under faux-“nationalist” political party, the SNP.
The present kefuffle around Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon etc is a straw in the wind. Salmond (obviously guilty of sexual shenanigans despite his plainly politically-motivated acquittal a while ago) and Sturgeon (a petty tyrant) are the Romulus and Remus of Scottish (fake) Independence.
I have no objection, as such, to Scotland breaking away from the UK. I wonder, though, how many in Scotland understand in what sort of country, poor and politically-repressed, they may end up living?
As a matter of fact, I can see upheaval coming to Scotland, in that only about 50% (it may be 55% or even soon 60%) of the Scottish voters support the SNP and/or Independence (as presented). If, then, the anti-SNP or anti-“Independence” 40%-50% are forced to live under a corrupt and incompetent SNP regime (even now putting forward extreme anti-free-speech laws), expect fireworks.

Actually, that condensation and adaptation of part of the New Testament is rather kinder on the Jews than the original:
“When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.” [Matthew 27, King James Version]
“And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it. And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.” [Mark 15, King James Version]
“Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.” [Matthew 27, King James Version]
“When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.” [Matthew 27, King James Version]

Re. the Royal Mulatta, it is so funny watching the self-describing “Left” defend “Meghan”, simply because she is “black” (actually, of course, a half-caste, like Obama). No matter that she has, apparently, bullied her staff etc, she’s “black”. That’s her anytime Get Out Of Jail Free card.
As for the Royal Cuck, what can one say? Why are the “socialists” of Twitter not asking the question “why should we respect the Royal Cuck anyway?“
Were Prince Harry mere Harry Who?, he would be, at best, a junior Army officer or something like a car salesman.
The concept of royalty, in the real world, is mainly dependent on blood descent. Even leaving aside the Royal Cuck, the Royal Mulatta has no right, really, yet she is given the title of “duchess”. They have both forfeited any right to position and respect, and they have done what they have done for money and to be “celebrities” on American TV.
Actually, these contaminated British titles (duke, duchess, earl, baroness etc) are now so devalued that they really should be done away with.
I suppose that the ludicrous “Royal Married with Children” soap will continue. It’s a good alternative, for American TV, to other wealthy “celebrity” riff-raff such as the Kardashians.
A good “conspiracy theory” might be that the Royal Cuck and the Royal Mulatta are being built up as a way of engaging the interest of Britain’s new raceless, cultureless masses, who have little time for the traditional royals. I don’t suppose that such is the case (it’s too subtle for the royals, I expect) but an interesting idea an sich…
Musing….it seems to me that the Harry and Meghan marriage might be described as “White royal privilege meets black affirmative action privilege”. Just an idle thought…
The best way of describing Meghan Markle would be as in the old German saying, “Put a beggar on a horse and (s)he rides it to death“…

New York in the 1930s…
Amazing how different many of the places shown are today (and were even when I was last in New York, 28 years ago).
If the Gulf Stream really were to falter, and to fail to reach the UK, Britain might be plunged into something akin to an ice age, albeit (?) limited.
A 95-year-old woman is to be tried in Germany. Her crime? She was the secretary of a WW2 camp commandant, in fact based (it seems) outside the camp itself.
The German police state (the present one, not the 1933-1945 Reich) has prosecuted her as a scapegoat for those now long-dead. Others have in recent years suffered similarly, such as very old men who, as boys of 18, belonged to the Wehrmacht or SS and did low-level work in concentration camp offices, or other activity. Even accountants have found themselves charged with complicity in the alleged death of thousands of Jews or others.
Of course, behind the conscienceless prosecutors of Merkel’s Germany stand the Jews and Israel, on the international level.
Another interesting contrast is between the bleeding heart pseudo-liberals and their refrain in relation to almost any criminal (that people should be treated leniently, released early etc), and the same bleaters when someone of 95 or 100 is on trial for supposed “crimes” “committed” by Germans in the early 1940s (such as shuffling paper in railway offices). Then, the “liberalism” vanishes, because the one-time 18 year old SS recruit or 18 year old secretary was “a Nazi”, i.e. was alive in the Germany of 1941-1945.
Were the 18 year old secretaries or draftees of 1945 Los Alamos (New Mexico) somehow responsible for Hiroshima and Nagasaki? No? Why not? If they were not guilty of wartme mass killing, then neither is a very old lady who was secretary to an SS commandant in 1944 or 1945 when she was 18 or 19…
The Guardian report even recycles the discredited “six million” stuff…
Farcically, the persecuted and prosecuted 95 year old (presently resident in a care home), will be tried in a youth court, because she was under 21 during WW2! Alice in Wonderland, in German translation.
That very old woman is a pawn in a game of “holocaust” publicity, the game being yet another ZOG Schauspiel.
I think that there may have been 10 incidents, in fact. Others say 10 stabbings in 5 incidents. Net result more or less the same. Seems that some blacks have not taken the “Black Lives Matter” mantra too seriously…
Paramedic tweeter “@peepculture” finds it a puzzle what is happening. His Twitter profile has a “rainbow” motif etc. It naturally must be puzzling or even hurtful to people who perhaps sincerely believe that a multiracial, multicultural society can work, when all human history shows that it cannot, not for long anyway.
Looking at that “von Sternberg”, he certainly did not look German. I sought the answer. Wikipedia informed me that his real name was in fact Jonas Sternberg; Jew. The “von” presumably added for reasons of fashion, though I presume not camouflage (after all, most Hollywood studios were run by and riddled with Jews even in the 1930s, few of whom thought to attempt to conceal their origins).
Damn. John Rentoul got 6/10 today, better than me, who scored only 5/10. That is only the —I think— third (maybe even second) time he has beaten me since I started doing the quiz months ago. Today, I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10.
I have blogged many times about the Labour Party. An important topic, in that the UK has a basically binary system which was Liberal Party v. Conservative and Unionist Party until just after the First World War, then Labour Party v. Conservative Party. A situation which still pertains, and which, from the psychological point of view, emerges from the typical British mindset of “rivalry”, which also results in the British love of sporting rivalry, particularly in team sports.
I saw the tweets below:
“Lewis joined the Army and toured in Afghanistan“. Very naive. Clive Lewis, a person of mixed race, joined the Territorial Army as commissioned officer, then did three months in Afghanistan, as far as publicly known not seeing any action, after which he had a breakdown or meltdown on return to the UK. More of a gap year misadventure than Bravo Two Zero…
Goodwin’s main point is that Labour must show itself “patriotic”, which apparently means waving a flag or wearing a red poppy once a year. Hard advice to follow when the voters know that Labour under Blair and Brown uined Britain by deliberately importing millions of blacks and browns, who have since been breeding prolifically.
True, the “Conservative” Party record on mass immigration is almost as bad, and now is getting worse, part-Jew Boris-idiot having now decided to allow entry to as may as 6 million Hong Kong Chinese, 300,000 of whom are expected to arrive within a few months! That however, will not help Labour much.
As Goodwin correctly says, though, Labour is now a party of “London progressives” (in terms of members and supporters); its voting base among English and Welsh voters (meaning white people) has all but collapsed, making Labour reliant on “the blacks and browns” and/or those employed by the State and its offshoots such as the NHS.
The 2019 General Election made plain that the Labour vote is only about a third of the total vote. Core vote? Maybe 25%.
There is a ray of hope for Labour, in that persons under 30, maybe more under 24, seem better disposed towards Labour (that may also have an ethnic dimension, because the proportion of blacks and browns is increasing in that part of the age demographic as those populations breed). However, the under-24s are notoriously non-voting.
I wonder how many SNP supporters know, accept, or care about that prediction? Few, probably.
The belated rise of the long-struggling SNP has been remarkable. The SNP was founded in 1934, yet took 33 years to get its first MP (Winnie Ewing, in a 1967 by-election). Between 1967 and 2015, the SNP representation at Westminster swung between 1 and 7; on the eve of the 2015 General Election, the SNP still had only 6 MPs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.
In a sense, the most remarkable thing about the SNP is how its post-2014 rise at Westminster shows up the absurdity of FPTP voting. In 2015, the SNP landslide —56 out of 59 Scottish Westminster seats— was achieved on the back of only 50% of the actual popular vote in Scotland.
At Holyrood (the Scottish Parliament), elected under a fairer —proportional representation— system, the SNP has never won more than about half of the MSP seats: 69 out of 129 in 2011, and 63 out of 129 in 2016: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#Scottish_Parliament_2. It will be interesting to see what happens later this year. The SNP representation at Holyrood broadly equates to the support for Scottish Independence. Somewhere around 50-50, so far.
I do not hold myself out as any kind of expert on Scottish politics, and in fact have never been North of Hadrian’s Wall, but it seems to me that SNP support comes from two main directions: voters committed to “Independence”, and voters disgusted by the other major parties, and so voting by default. An overlapping Venn diagram.
At any rate, as I have recently and previously blogged, if the SNP manage to wrest Scotland away from the UK, that pretty much sinks Labour in England and Wales, at least in terms of being a party of government.

Germany is a dustbin now, ruled and/or strongly influenced by Jews, full of Central European and Eastern European (ethnically non-European) Gypsies. I noticed the decline in standards, from when it was mostly West Germany, when I returned for the first time in 13 years in 2001. Huge numbers of non-Europeans in Munich (which city looked quite scruffy as well).
That minor msm radio drone, “@adamgarriereal”, has no conception of the evil wrought by the “holocaust” mythus and the connected quasi-heresy laws extant in several countries (not in the UK, but the System politicians, msm etc operate a kind of unwritten “holocaust” “denial” law). Once you start to criminalize or demonize truth by mandating “official truth”, Pandora’s Box is open, and out fly not only “holocaust” “denial” laws or quasi-laws, but the description of other dissenting views as “denial”…
I was once trolled (on Twitter, some years ago) by a whole group of idiots grouped around one very stupid woman who thought herself terribly clever, a nurse (oh, yes, one of those supposedly caring, sharing people…) from the North West of England. I had to block about 15, and they had no choice but to FO. Such people are very tiny minds (as can be seen in the tweets of some of the “antifascist” and allied Jew-Zionist crowds).
It will be fun, if it becomes mandatory to use your own name on social media, to see who exactly trolled me in the past (some still comment about me). Then we’ll see what happens. What fun!
I just read a few of the tweets of “@eldram_artwork”. Two minutes of my life wasted, minutes that I shall never get back.
