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, paticularly 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).
I 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.
Not at present, but our “religion” must be that of positive evolution into the future and far future. As Soloviev put it, “Godmanhood”…

More Twitter shenanigans. I noticed an interview with Twitter’s former head of European affairs. Seemed to be a Jew. What a surprise.
In fact, when I was expelled from Twitter in 2018 (after a small pack of Jews targeted me…but what goes around comes around…), I had just on 3,000 “followers”, which I suppose equates to about 6,000 in 2021 (the “follower” count increases for most accounts over time almost automatically). The funny thing was that the level was kept (apparently artificially) just below 3,000; had been for some time. Obviously manipulated.
I have blogged about these matter previously. While I usually steer clear of Scottish politics, not having much studied the subject (and having never even visited the country), the overall effect on Westminster is a different matter.
If the presently-ruling SNP, as Scottish Government, holds some form of referendum and decides to leave the UK, as Hitchens seems to be saying, the Westminster government would have a choice: to repress that, as the Madrid government has done in Catalonia, or to say “au revoir” and “see you again“… I do not think that out and out repression would be the right response.
I do not see any need to remove the “Saltire” —St. Andrew’s Cross— from the Union flag even if Scotland declares “Independence”. The Union flag, now, reflects the historical position or record, nothing more.
The effect on Westminster politics of Scotland leaving the UK would be nuclear, however. I have examined this previously in detail, but in essence the position would be that 59 Scottish Westminster seats would go, 47-48 of them (1 SNP MP had whip removed) at present being SNP seats, only 6 Scottish Conservative seats.
It can be seen that that would leave Labour, in England and Wales, up that well-known creek without a paddle. It would be almost impossible for Labour even to form a minority government at Westminster (though I concede that “never say never” in UK politics).
On 2019 General Election results, that would mean that there would be 591 seats in the House of Commons, of which 364 would be Conservative, 201 Labour, 7 LibDem, 4 Plaid Cymru, and 1 Green (leaving 19 others aside).
On 2017 General Election results, the situation would be Conservative 316, Labour 256, LibDem 8, Plaid 4, Green 1 (leaving 18 others aside).
It can be seen the the Conservative Party would have a 60-seat overall majority on 2019 figures, and a 29-seat overall majority even on 2017 figures. Bearing in mind that the Speaker does not usually vote, and that Sinn Fein never take their seats, those majorities in practical terms increase by about 16 in both scenarii. So either a 76-seat majority or one of 45. Unassailable.
On the strategic level, I imagine that the Kremlin would regard Scottish withdrawal from the UK as a windfall of huge proportions, fracturing the NATO alliance and removing, probably, UK/NATO military, naval, and air deployments from Scottish territory.
On the UK domestic political level, it would mean that a Labour vote might be a wasted vote, and that there would be an embedded Conservative elected dictatorship anchored in Southern England. Labour as we now know it would retreat even more into being the party of the “blacks and browns” and/or public service employees, and there would be a far greater chance for social nationalism to go mainstream. On that basis, then, bring it on!
Professor Tettenborn, no less. I do not claim acquaintance with him, though I did sit with him and another person as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” at a student moot organized by Exeter University in 2002, and which was held at the historic Guildhall in the centre of Exeter.
That was my one and only time sitting as if in the seat of legal judgment. My loss, or society’s?
Seems that the UK Government is proposing to do away with anonymity on Twitter and other social media platforms. Oddly, some of the Jew-Zionist element have been pressing for this, which is ironic in that (alongside others) I (who always tweeted from one Twitter account in my own name) was trolled relentlessly by (mainly) Jews, many of whom affected anonymity, though some were eventually exposed in court in cases involving others.
A couple of the several guilty (almost all connected with the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism”) were Stephen Silverman of South Essex, who trolled under a number of pseudonyms until found out (now using the main account “@ssilvuk”), and Stephen Applebaum of Watford/Edgware, who also used a number of accounts (contrary to Twitter rules…) but who now mainly tweets as “@grubstreetsteve” and “@rattus2384”. Both of those named were exposed by the CAA’s own lawyer during a preliminary hearing in one of the Alison Chabloz private prosecutions (persecutions).
Neither Silverman nor Applebaum were ever charged with any offence for such activities. Silverman was supposed to be interviewed by police but weaselled out of attending, helped by “CAA” lawyers.
I have no great objection to the proposed new social media rules or laws on identity. I myself have never been a “troll”, indeed have been the target for trolls. As I say, mainly Jews and/or “antifascist” deadheads.
In a way, I look forward to the exposure of the identities of certain trolls presently anonymous or pseudonymous. A few of them must have fear in their hearts. Rightly so.

There he is. Chris Whitty. One of the most prominent UK officials during the past year of disinformation, scam, lies, weaponizing of illness, and the Great Reset conspiracy. Not quite as bad, arguably, as Ferguson, but part of the same lot of narrowly-focussed technocrats.
The worst thing that any nation (assuming for the moment that the UK still is a “nation”) can do is put specialized scientists, numbers crunchers, and administrative medics in charge. The misnamed “SAGE” lot are halfway through destroying Britain’s short-term and medium-term future.
Well, I think that we know what we shall have to do, maybe not so far into the future. It will be hard, and will scar not only us but also our descendants, for generations, but it will have to be done.
Tested positive for Covid earlier. About 5/6 days on from the point in time where I think I picked it up. Only symptoms so far being a dry throat, and a slight increase in anti-Semitism which I've medicated by writing a piece on Christian Zionism. Should be posted at TOO soon.
I like what little I have heard of these “hundred-handers”. They are, it seems, akin to the samizdat (self-publishing) dissidents in the Soviet Union during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. When lies are all the public see, whether in mass media, from the churches, the schools and universities, the police, the corrupt political class, ONE SMALL PIECE OF TRUTH pierces the darkness.
WW2 begins with “Nazism” in history books.
No one talks about communism, or jewish interests, the bolsheviks or anything that led up to the war it always begins and ends with Nazi’s.
This is deliberately done so people dont see who the real enemies were.
“Sensitive, empathic, and insightful, you care deeply about people, wanting to accommodate them on the one hand, and having strong visions that you desperately want to turn into reality on the other. Often preoccupied with mulling over your personal thoughts in your own head, others are likely to describe you as tolerant, courteous, and appreciative, but also a bit remote and dreamy. Thoughtful and caring, you have a well-developed facility for putting yourself in another person’s place and an instinctive understanding of how people work. Though you tend to spend considerable time fantasizing about how society could be improved, you typically refrain from arguing passionately in favor of your solutions. Instead, you prefer to influence others by gently letting them know how their individual contributions would be invaluable in the greater scheme of things.”
This apparently puts me on the same page as Jefferson and Gandhi, inter alia.

Heard what I thought sounded like a typical British and aged Oxbridge academic woman called Dr. Brenda Boardman, demanding that the little UK, with its relatively small population, take measures (which might trash our living standards) to “reduce emissions”, despite the fact that all UK “emissions” of “greenhouse gases” add up to only 1% of those of the world as a whole.
I have no objection to people getting degrees “late” or from the Open University, and it may be that that lady’s work overall has been valuable, but it can be very dangerous or destructive to give academics or semi-academics too much power or influence over the real UK. Look at “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”— “Department Under Matt and Boris”)…
Horrible and upsetting to hear on the Today Programme that “someone”, presumably a local farmer or landowner, has deliberately trashed over a mile of the bank of the River Lugg, which meets the Wye near Hereford: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Lugg
Trees cut down, bushes etc destroyed, the bank of the river actually canalized, otters, birds and fish killed or displaced.
Penalties for this sort of crime must be greatly increased.

I should say, the degree of domestic comfort now taken for granted by UK residents of all conditions. Central heating is major, as is hot water on tap without problems (see old British films for an idea of what many had to endure before, not even 1945, but c.1970).
Incidentally, the first house in England (and UK, I think) to have central heating, at least since the days of Roman Britain, was the country house of the steel magnate, Bessemer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Bessemer], which country house is now a seaside hotel [https://www.beachhousemilfordonsea.co.uk/] not more than a few miles from where I myself now live. Oddly, I also lived (for a year or two) near another area associated with Bessemer, Denmark Hill in South London, which was his main residence (and he died there, not long before the outbreak of the First World War).
What made me laugh were some of the responses to that Goodwin question. Some cited “public housing” (though of course that pre-dated 1945), “good and reliable television” (“reliable”, yes, if that means the picture appears when you switch on; “good”, doubtful…), and of course TV never really got going until the early 1950s though it had existed (in both Germany and the UK) since the 1930s, but with only a few hundred viewers initially.
I did not see “mass immigration” as an “important advance or achievement” cited by even one of the usually avid Twitter virtue-signallers. Honesty by default?
That Anderson person is in the pocket of the Jewish lobby. He used to tweet against me, before part of that same Jew lobby had me expelled from Twitter in 2018. Interesting to see this news. “Oh dear, what a pity, never mind!…“
Speaking of “what goes around comes around”, here is serial Twitter troll “@grubstreetsteve”, aka “@rattus2384”, real name Stephen Applebaum, an active conspirator of the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”, tweeting to others, notably “@TimGStevens” (aka “Dr. Dim”) about me:
So I have “zero life“? Well, it is true that my life is far less affluent —and far more circumscribed in consequence— than it was 15, 20, or more years ago, but Applebaum might reflect on how saying unpleasant things can boomerang back: he, once (long ago) an aspiring film critic, is now never, or hardly ever, published anywhere, is basically a “house husband”, and moreover has recently been tweeting about how he has been diagnosed as having both cancer and “Coronavirus”, which has affected his lungs etc.
Actually, “Dr. Dim” tweeted not long ago to another mentally-disordered Zionist (a Jewish woman from North London) that he quite often looks at my blog (the said Jewess replied that she looks at it daily, no doubt to see whether she might be able to make —another— malicious complaint against me to the police). In other words, Dr. Dim’s assertion that he hardly knows of me, and so on, is rather “economical with the truth”…
“They” snoop constantly on my blog. They do not realize that, by so doing, their own minds will be affected.
Another troll exposed in open court, like Applebaum, is Stephen Silverman, “Head of Enforcement and Investigations” at the sinister Jew-Zionist cabal, the so-called Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA).
I have noticed that quite a few people on Twitter, gratuitously nasty about me in the past decade, are now either dead or have serious and chronic medical conditions. Looks like someone “up there” is on my side. As the ancient Chinese proverb has it, “the stars in their courses fight on the side of the just“. May God mote it be!
In Hampshire, each little police area seems to run its own Twitter account. Most are unexceptionable, informing the public about their work, and about arrests made etc, appealing for information, and so on. Quite useful for the public. A few, however, have fallen into socio-political bias. For example, the “Waterside Cops” Twitter account (covering the area of the Solent shore South West of Southampton), seemed to be, until recently, full of propaganda about “hate speech”, and also about how good, supposedly, are the “Roma”, “traveller” etc “communities”. Ironic, in view of the “situation” with those “communities”…
Well, it seems that the Chief Constable (or whoever) has taken the matter in hand, with the result that all the local police Twitter accounts in Hampshire, all the ones of which I am aware anyway, will be closed on 4 January 2021. It may be that they are throwing out the baby with the bathwater, in that most of those accounts, most of the time, were all right. Still, there it is.

The ongoing persecution of Alison Chabloz by the State, on behalf of a small but nasty group of zionist Jews. https://t.co/zmq7DNWzMq
The above tweet may be unintentionally misleading. The hearing on 17 December 2020 is the trial of Alison Chabloz on another three charges arising from a complaint made in 2019 by Stephen Silverman of the “CAA”. It is not directly connected with Alison’s appeal in respect of earlier trials or matters (which are now concluded).
When Starmer was put in (by the Jewish/Israel lobby) to re-take Labour (he’s married to a Jewish woman lawyer; children brought up as Jewish, just like those of that corrupt little pissant, Robert Jenrick), I thought that he would at least look reasonably competent. Wrong!
Neither did they warn the country that all the promises and reassurances were fantasies and jobs would be lost and the economy would crash. They sat on their hands and instead of doing what an opposition party does, they enabled, thinking they won’t get the blame! I blame them!
A pretty good graphic, though designed for American conditions of society rather than British/European.
The Jew business predator, Philip Green, was discussed on BBC Radio 4 Today. Lord Myners [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Myners,_Baron_Myners] said that Green is “what in the 1970s we called a asset-stripper“, who has never built up or created a brand, but, “highly-geared” (i.e. swimming in debt), bought businesses and then “ran them into the ground.”
Any decent country would hold Green upside down and shake him until all the gold fell out of his pockets. His catspaw, Chappell, is sitting in prison for a few years now [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_Chappell] but Green himself has, it seems, still hundreds if not thousands of millions of pounds (largely in the name of his wife), and several megayachts based in Monaco.
It may be (and Lord Myners mentioned the problem, though diplomatically) that Green may have, in effect, defrauded the pensioners who worked in the Arcadia Group companies, just as the Jew [called] “Robert Maxwell” did in respect of Daily Mirror pensioners. Maxwell, of course, has long ago gone up the chimney, and his daughter, the one-time chief “ho” of the Jew paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is in prison in New York and awaiting trial.
When will people wake up to the fact that in —at least— (((one))) way, “Hitler was right”?…
Speaking of (((predators))), remember Brooks Newmark [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooks_Newmark], the American Jew (Jew by birth, and so genetics, but now a Roman Catholic in terms of religious affiliation), who had to resign as MP after having been involved in sex scandals? Well, this is how he is now profiteering out of “the virus” and the NHS:
I have favoured Leave or Brexit for at least 10 years, but realized years ago, at the time of and after the 2016 referendum, that not only was it being sabotaged in various ways, but simultaneously mismanaged by a number of incompetent “Conservative” ministers, among them several members of the present Cabinet of clowns.
It seems that the UK will (in reality) leave the EU soon. Plans seem not very advanced as to what will then happen and how to deal with it all.
The “virus”, or rather the measures employed in reaction to it, will add to any Brexit chaos. Whether there will be interruption of supply of food and/or medicines, is apparently up in the air.
It seems that about 70,000 people are being infected with “the virus” daily in the UK, and about 1 person out of every 350 (known to be) infected is dying of or with it. Bearing in mind that only a fraction of actually infected people are known to be so infected, the real figure may be as low as one death per several thousand infectees.
Britain must open up again, get rid of all the interfering measures in place for months, and breathe free again. In particular, the facemask nonsense must be chucked in the bin.
As said on previous occasions, if the Scottish people want to separate from England and Wales (and Northern Ireland), well, fine.
It does, I admit, seem to me a strange idea of both “nationalism” and “independence” to remain under the wing (or thumb, or heel) of the EU, the international banks, NATO (probably), not to mention the Jewish-Zionist lobby (which plainly has its claws into Sturgeon and the SNP). Also, “nationalism” that encourages migration-invasion? The SNP minister now cracking down on free speech is a Pakistani. How does that work? Oh…I see. Said Pakistani has a Scottish accent, so he is more Scottish than am I, despite my Franco-Scottish surname and likely part-Scottish ancestry. Or so believes the SNP.
Of course, any departure from the Union would be the end for the Labour Party at Westminster. True, Labour only has 1 MP in a Scottish seat anyway, but if the SNP departs from Westminster, along with its 47 MPs, that leaves the Conservative Party all but unassailable at Westminster on present showing.
Scottish independence would remove any chance for Labour to form even a minority government at Westminster. The 47 SNP MPs,1 Scottish Labour MP and 4 Scottish LibDems, 52 in all, would not be available to form a coalition. Labour, on present showing, would be left with 225 Labour and Labour Co-op MPs, whereas the Conservatives would still have 358 MPs.
Even taking into account all the other non-Conservative Party MPs, that would still leave the Cons with a majority of something like 118, i.e. 38 more than at present. An even more firmly-embedded “elected dictatorship”.
The arithmetic is stark. The Labour Party could not even pretend to be a potential party of government.
On the above premises, Scottish “Independence” might not be completely unattractive to some of the Conservative Party…
As to the Scots themselves…
As Hitler said of the Weimar Republic Germans, “they want not only their daily bread but also their daily illusion“…
This is a doomed campaign by Hitchens. The idea that MPs will be frightened by the possible —but in most cases unlikely— loss of a Westminster seat one, two, three or four years down the line from now, is ridiculous. Some things can frighten MPs, but this is not one of them.
The flaw there is the conflation of “law” (or “laws”) with “the rule of law”. We are in a situation where (and it has happened gradually, over 10+ years) the UK Government has become less and less a government under law, and more and more just a regime laying down laws…
I have reposted the above tweets because they seem interesting, not because I endorse the organization. I have not yet examined that.

Meanwhile, the Jew Green and his family sit on their vulgar megayacht (or one of the three), drinking champagne, as the British employees of Arcadia look towards a bleak Christmas (the Christmas presumably not celebrated by the Greens) and a bleaker future.
This latest stupid sub-legal “rule” (“no drinkee without more eatee than a snackee”) is even more stupid than most of this nonsense. What “science” dictated it? None. Look at the news today! No.10 asked to pronounce on whether a pasty is OK, or a Scotch Egg!
The day starts with the BBC Radio 4 news report, which says that the billionaire Jew merchant, Philip Green, “has been urged to use his family money to help the employees” of the Arcadia Group which Green and his family looted in recent years! It’s too late or too early for April Fool jokes.
The sclerosis of UK politics
It is surely clear that the poliical system in the UK is sclerotic. The needs of the people are not addressed by it; neither are the wishes of the voters, who have a pathetic non-choice. More below.
Labour, coalition ideas, Clive Lewis (and “Femi Sorry”)
Family income presumably in the hundreds of thousands. Educated at a fee-paying school. Supposedly worked at several (unnamed) NGOs for about 3 years in toto (mostly, if not entirely, paid or unpaid internships, the latter something only the offspring of the affluent can do).
So did “Our Future Our Choice”, this little campaign group run by a few young people, operate out of that Solihull attic, or from a tiny office in some poor part of Birmingham or London? Well, no. It had an office in Millbank Tower [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millbank_Tower], one of the most expensive office addresses in London. “Labour ran its 1997 General Election campaign from these offices; after the election, the party vacated its headquarters at John Smith House, Walworth Road SE17, to move to Millbank. Five years later, however, the £1 million per annum rent forced the party to vacate the tower.” [Wikipedia]
Rent of a million a year? Well...”The United Nations also had offices in the tower, but moved out in June 2003, also citing high rents.” [Wikipedia].
Yet “Our Future Our Choice” had an office there. So who paid? The EU, via a couple of cut-outs.
Well, “Our Future Our Choice” is now defunct, but “Femi” has tried to use his publicity from 2019 to fuel a political and msm career for himself. I recall seeing him once recently on the late-night Sky News talking shop (the name of which escapes me). None other than Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s old spinmeister, has commended him by tweet.
Femi’s msm career has hardly rocketed, but he is seen or heard occasionally on radio or TV. I suppose that he scrapes a easy modest living out of it. Hard to say. He seems to want to become an MP, but I doubt that that will work out, even in today’s risibly-poor political milieu.
An example of the “Great Replacement”?
Below, an example of the pathetically-poor thinking skills of “Femi Sorry”…
Is there anything in the idea of a coalition of “anti-Tory” parties? Well, I blogged in the past about how Labour’s only hope in 2019 would have been to get a plurality of MPs at the General Election, and then to have cobbled together a coalition with the SNP and others.
Never happened, because Nigel Farage stabbed his own Brexit Party in the back and betrayed his own candidates, standing them down so that the Conservative Party had a free run in almost all constituencies. That alone gave the Conservative Party its present 80-seat majority. In return, we see Farage still given credence by the msm (he even has his own radio show). He may also have received a multi-million bung offshore (though I concede that I have no evidence of that, just a strong suspicion).
If the Labour Party were able to treat with the SNP at the next General Election, then what? What would the SNP want? Nothing less than a binding Independence referendum, or even a pledge of Independence outright.
If Scotland became “independent”, though, the Labour Party at Westminster would lose, on present showing, its only Scottish Labour MP, and also the support of 47 SNP MPs, as well as that of the 4 Scottish LibDem MPs.
That would leave the speculated grand “anti-Tory” coalition with 226 Labour and Labour Co-op MPs, 7 LibDems, 3 Plaid Cymru, 2 Northern Irish SDLP, 1 Northern Irish Alliance MP, and Caroline Lucas, the “solitary Green”. 240 MPs altogether, even with all of those parties on board.
As against that, again on present showing, the Conservative Party would have 358 MPs (the present complement of 364 minus the 6 Scottish Conservatives).
Result? A Conservative Party majority of 118.
It can be seen that the “anti-Tory” grand coalition mooted is a house built on sand.
The political system is sclerotic. The public in England itself has a “choice” between “two main parties” which are now (Corbyn having been booted out) again very similar. We see that vis a vis the “panicdemic”. The official Opposition is not only not opposing, but actually saving the Government’s bacon, as seems likely next week, in the “Coronavirus” debate. The only real opposition, as I predicted, is now coming from Conservative Party MPs.
Proportional Representation is necessary in the UK, but unlikely at present. Even that, though, will not save Labour. Once FPTP is gone, the System parties lose a degree of “credibility” that they now have over upstart parties.

…and then, just as the people were in despair at ever escaping from “the virus” (i.e. from government “measures”, “rules” etc), there appeared a white knight on the horizon— the vaccine(s). Moreover, vaccines developed in a fraction of the usual time. Am I wrong in being just a little suspicious? It just has something of the “Kool Aid” time about it…[in fact, the lethal drink at Jonestown was a different but similar soft drink, Flavor Aid: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown].
Not that I believe that the vaccines are actually going to kill everyone. Certainly not in the short term. There may, however, be unexpected aspects which will only become known to people generally in the future.
My very provisional assessment of this Buckby is that he seems to be being funded by a North American “think tank”, possibly “libertarian”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frontier_Centre_for_Public_Policy. He is now “anti-racist”, which for me is a negative, looking at the world today. I have to say, also, that anyone who thought that Anne Marie Waters had anything interesting to offer politically, must be lacking in judgment.

A particularly heartbreaking and heartless example of the “virus” madness that has swept the country for most of 2020.
The “British” Government has largely abandoned “lawful, peaceful means”, so why should we be restricted to them??
Once again, I did better than John Rentoul. He got 3/10 in this week’s (harder than usual?) quiz. My score was 5/10, or 4/10 if my answer to question 8 was insufficiently precise. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 6, 7, 9.

Unemployed “antifa” cheerleader, and perennial grifter, Mike Stuchbery, now resident in Stuttgart, vicariously threatens young people in the UK with persecution for their political views. Whatever did happen to the nearly £12,000 that he and “Roanna @antifashwitch” raised from 700 mugs via GoFundMe so that, supposedly, Stuchbery could sue Tommy Robinson?
A year or so on, and nothing has happened.
I only know what I see online about it all, but think that the police fraud people ought to take a look at all that. I am not convinced that Stuchbery and “Roanna @antifashwitch” ever intended to use the monies to fund a legal action.
In a sense, it is incredible how a people as traditionally (though maybe not so much now) educated and intelligent as the Scots can take petty dictator Sturgeon and her unpleasant little SNP pack seriously. I suppose that the blame lies with the (other, older) System parties: “Labour”, “Conservative”, “Liberal Democrat” (all very much misnamed).
The Labour Party lost all credibility in Scotland, finally grinding to a halt under System drone, Jewish lobby mouthpiece (and now Tony Blair-salaried “gopher”), Jim Murphy, a man who spent 13 years as a university student without even getting a degree! Not forgetting Kezia Dugdale, another “never had a job” drone, idiot (and now newspaper-scribbling lesbian).
The Conservative Party is making minor inroads in Scotland by default, i.e. because they are neither Labour nor SNP (nor LibDem), but I cannot see that getting far, bearing in mind the Boris-idiot government in London and the upcoming economic tsunami triggered by government policy around “the virus”, as well as by badly-mishandled Brexit.
The SNP is only “faux”-nationalist, tolerant of mass immigration (perhaps because Scotland has as yet not been affected as much by it as has been England) and very much in the pocket of the Jewish lobby. Indeed, what sort of “Independence” would it be, if Scotland were still in the EU, NATO, and under the international conspiracy-consensus (NWO, ZOG, Bilderberg etc)?
Still, if Scotland wants “Independence”, let it go its own way, by all means. The rest of Britain can then turn to real social-nationalism.
Here is my own assessment, from last year, of Mike Stuchbery: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/. He keeps tweeting that he has been “libelled” by me and various others (including some Danes, apparently), and that he is “keeping track of all the libel“. He often tweets about how anyone exposing him better get good lawyers and/or that he will “clean out” anyone who tweets or writes about him.
Well, here is a piece of totally free legal advice from an ex-barrister: Stuchbery now has exactly 16 days in which he might start legal proceedings against me in libel in relation to my blog post about him. I am not quaking…
I've received a few of these myself. We have not broken any laws other than thinking differently. No other group receives this sort of treatment. Bankers have never been our friend. They've supported/financed revolutions that have led to millions dead. Today they give to blm.
Disgusting. This is how people who tell the truth are treated. Not only are they targeted by the government, media, and marxist groups, but they are strangled by the banks as well. There is so much energy put into silencing those who can debunk the mainstream narratives. https://t.co/6PwKgd2SeZ
I hope that that tweeter, “@DrChrisParry”, knows more about defence than he seems to know about UK strategy more generally. His view seems to be that the UK having a couple of aircraft carriers will push the UK to the top of the tree in terms of world power. Well, the U.S. Navy has 11 aircraft carriers; China has 2 (building another at present, with 6 planned in all); Russia has 2, with 2 more in the pipeline; Italy has 2; France has 1; and so on.
The tweeter noted seems to think that spending money in vast quantities on an aircraft carrier or two will arrest the relative decline of Britain, which has been a fact since 1918 and especially since 1945. This is hardly worth arguing… As for “resisting the power of totalitarian regimes“, the only power constantly intimidating Britain and its corrupt politicians is the USA, our supposed ally… and American military-destructive power dwarfs that of the UK.
Ah, I see that tweeter “@DrChrisParry” does indeed know about defence, at least in its tactical aspects, he having been an admiral and a commander of ships in actual warfare: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Parry_(Royal_Navy_officer). Sadly, it remains true that, just as the environment cannot be left to farmers (because of both self-interest and blinkered viewpoints), defence strategy cannot be left to the generals and admirals, however distinguished.
Oh, the sheer pleasure of being able to slowly advance in that vehicle, watching the horror slowly dawn on the bitch’s face as she realises that she is going down. Would she try to run or jump away in the last split-second, or would she just utter a last scream as the “tank” rolls over her?
That driver is very patient.
Stanley Johnson. Part-Jew, part-Turk, but “sanctified” as a True Blue Brit and “gentleman” by reason of having attended Sherborne School and Oxford…
Blood is destiny. Look at Stanley Johnson’s offspring: Boris-idiot, public entertainer, scribbler of rubbish, and poseur, presently doing a tragi-comic reprise (in miniature) of Winston Churchill; Jo Johnson, politician and former newspaper scribbler specializing in finance; Rachel Johnson, scribbler, editor and TV talking head; Leo Johnson, who is described by Wikipedia as “entrepreneur and film-maker“. Need one say (((more)))?
Tomorrow is often unexpected
I happened to see this:
When I visited the DDR (East Germany) briefly in 1988, the impression I received was that it was more like a stage set of a state than a real one, but I had no idea that, as little as a year or so later, that state would not exist.
Who knows, really, how long any state, even one as longlasting as the UK, will last?
Why did the DDR collapse? Why did the Soviet Union collapse? Many causes, but overall because they decayed internally. That was the number one cause.
Now look at the UK. It may continue for decades, or even centuries. More likely, it will pass into history within a few years from today.
Peter Hitchens still (perhaps) thinks that the UK as a “nation” (no, it is not really a nation any more) exists and that its old and now ramshackle institutions (courts, judges, Parliament, “free” Press, BBC) still have value. “Where are they?“, asks Hitchens, despairingly. They are now but “whited sepulchres”, almost-ruins.
“Stay angry, yet patient“? In Zulu, it was more “stay cool but open fire“.
Once again, a nice, well-behaved, civilized English person who thinks that we need “debate”. I think that we need something quite different (though true facts are always useful).
The “Conservative” Party does hate most of its voters. Look at the Parliamentary Party, the Cabinet, the [person posing as] Prime Minister! What do we see? Jews, Mischlingen, wealthy Indians, token blacks and half-castes like Cleverly. As for the white English and Welsh “Conservative” MPs, most are either greedy speculators like Jacob Rees-Mogg, idiot backwoodsmen in it for the pay and expenses (like Peter Bone), or lobby fodder —and (((lobby))) fodder— without an original thought in all their heads combined.
A few final thoughts for today
Trump: whatever one’s general view of him, he has proven his point. He is 74, overweight, has a poor diet (we are told), has contracted “the virus”, yet has spent only a few days in hospital (and mainly out of his doctors’ caution). His wife, also infected, has just been resting at home.
Conclusion: this is not the plague, most people are not even aware that they have “the virus”; few die from it (in relation to those infected or the population as a whole).
The UK “panicdemic”: the government is simply afraid to tell people “we got it wrong; this is nowhere as bad as we have been saying for 6 months“.
UK finances: now it is becoming clear that either there will be even more public spending cuts, reducing the UK to the backward status of a third-rate power (complete with “diverse” population), or there will have to be steep tax rises for the majority of the population.
A kind of semi-dictatorship, hard to define but somewhere between an oligarchy and what someone wittily termed a “wallygarchy”, is being put into place, not overnight but in Lilliputian steps; many small binding ties. The unnecessary fear the “government of clowns” has injected into the population makes that process much easier…but destroys almost everything else.
So far, the msm is promoting Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak for his largesse with public funds and his schemes to somehow keep large parts of the poisoned economy alive. In fact, it is telling that several Conservative Party MPs have coyly implied that Sunak would be better at being PM than irrelevant poseur Boris-idiot.
“Boris” is like a faded entertainer whose jokes are now falling flat and who, having been a major draw, is reduced to treading the boards in the provinces. While Sunak was expounding his rather underwhelming ideas and new policies in the Commons, “Boris” was inspecting police recruits at some place in East Anglia.
Not so sure about the “great“, but the article in question is important at this time, and Hitchens himself is at least willing to see what is happening, as many in the msm either turn a blind eye or fall in behind the System.
The SNP is a phenomenon. A faux-“nationalist” party which has succeeded in gaining power not because of its own merits but because there was nothing much opposing it.
The Scottish public was sold the idea that much of Britain’s North Sea oil was really Scotland’s North Sea oil…a doubtful (though not completely implausible) proposition, looking at the geography and the Law of the Sea as it applies to Exclusive Economic Zones [EEZs]:
The Scottish seats at Westminster then numbered 71, later increased to 72 but reduced from 2005 to 59. The SNP’s 11 MPs in 1974 remained the high-water mark until the SNP’s huge breakthrough in 2015, when the SNP under Nicola Sturgeon suddenly had 56 out of those 59. In 2010, the SNP had had elected only 6 MPs.
After decline to 35 MPs in 2017, the SNP (as I predicted) surged again to 48 MPs in 2019.
In fact, the apparent landslide does not reflect the views of the public very well. FPTP voting distortion. Even in 2015, when the SNP got 56 out of 59 Westminster seats, its vote-share was no more than 50%. In 2019, that was only 45%, yet the SNP has 48 out of 59 seats.
The SNP rose up for several reasons. Firstly because “it was there”; it existed. People cannot vote for a party that does not exist.
Secondly, the Scottish Labour Party, so long dominant, collapsed after years of complacency and corruption. The name that comes to mind is that of Jim Murphy, a complete System puppet. He got his first “real job”(sort-of…working for Scottish Labour!) at the age of 30! He had been a student for 12-13 years without even managing to get a degree!
The Murphy fiasco was symptomatic of a party totally out of touch. It had thrown away “socialism” in stages after 1990; by the time Murphy became leader in 2014, Scottish Labour stood for almost nothing but the Union with England, as well as a continuation of a failed society and economy.
Scottish Labour has had three more leaders since 2015, none of which has troubled national attention.
Scottish Labour (until 1994 simply part of the —UK— Labour Party) had been first-placed in Scotland in all general elections from 1922. The party was only placed second in 2015, third in 2017 and fourth in 2019. A stunning collapse. The popular vote share fell from 42% in 2010 to 18.6% in 2019. 41 MPs out of 59 in 2010, 1 MP in 2015, briefly 7 MPs in 2017, only to fall back to 1 MP in 2019.
It might be objected that Scottish Labour can still come back. I cannot see how. Recent surveys indicate that, as with Conservative Party support in England, Scottish Labour Party voters are mostly elderly people. A diminishing asset.
In the Scottish Parliament too, Scottish Labour has steadily declined, from 56 seats out of 129 in 1999 to 24 in 2016. The SNP currently has 63 MSPs.
What about the other Scottish parties? The Scottish LibDems now have 4 Westminster MPs out of 59 (11 in 2019, and 1 in 2015); in the Scottish Parliament, another steady decline, 17 out of 129 in 1999, 5 out of 129 now (2016 election).
The Scottish Conservatives declined steadily from 1955 to 1997 (no MPs at all were elected in 1997, and the party then had only one until 2017, when 13 were elected); presently, the Conservatives hold 6 Westminster seats out of 59. The Scottish Conservatives have increased their Holyrood representation: 18 MSPs in 1999, 15 in 2011, but 31 out of 129 in 2016.
The pattern is clear overall. The SNP came up in the 2010-2015 period because the other main parties were seen as declining entities with little to offer. The SNP may now be a fake “nationalist” elected dictatorship North of the Border, and rather incompetent to boot, but there is no obvious sign of challenge as far as Westminster elections are concerned.
In England, we see that Labour has floundered, that the Conservative Party is disastrous (too) and “won” in 2019 by default, with the LibDems on their last legs, but what does not exist in England (or Wales) is any semblance of a new or insurgent and upcoming party.
In Wales, Plaid Cymru is hampered not only because it is not really “nationalist”, but because Wales would be a very very poor little land had it to pay for itself as an “independent” state. Indeed, there is every chance that the Welsh economy will submerge further in 2020 and 2021.
In England proper, there is no real social-national party at all. If one were to exist, the next few years, as the economy crashes, as Brexit is mishandled and ruined, and as mass immigration continues, could be the years of triumph.

In fact, others did speak out, but they were, like me, not msm-approved scribblers and talking heads. I do not even have a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had Twitter expel me in 2018).
Generally speaking, the higher the proportion of European or European-ancestry people that exists in any given country, the better, overall, that country is.
That corrupt little pissant, Robert Jenrick, is in the news again, and as before for the wrong reasons:

Oh, what a surprise. Not. I have been raging against Boris-idiot for about 10 or more years, on Twitter since 2011 and in this blog since late 2016. My influence as yet is small, and it has felt at times like a hopeless struggle against the msm talking heads and scribblers, who have been pushing this completely unfitted vanity machine for about two decades. In fact, the unmerited “triumph” of “Boris” shows how powerful msm propaganda is when it comes to “the moronic masses”…(cf. facemasks and “Coronavirus” fear propaganda in general).
Talking of “the moronic masses”…here we have a British population which, faced with an epidemic that, in the UK, has killed about 1 in 2,000 of the population (and worldwide, about 1 in 8,000), has allowed itself to be scared to death. The majority, or at least about half, of the population seem to want to be locked in their homes, forced to wear facemask muzzles, prevented from going out or going anywhere much, so long as the State funnels some more money their way. As Shakespeare might say, “ay, there’s the rub“, for that money is, ultimately, the resource available by reason of a functioning economy.
No economy = no money. Not immediately. The Government can borrow, and is borrowing. At present, at advantageous rates. Borrowing to invest in people and projects is often good as a policy; to borrow merely to sustain a failing range of industries and companies, or to pay people’s bills, is not a good policy, and will be disastrous in the end.
Ha ha! Fanatical UK-based Jews think that they can hound their critics worldwide! In most countries, the repressive laws of the UK are not replicated, and in some (eg USA) there are safeguards for free speech.
