On this day a year ago
Well, this week, another victory over political journalist John Rentoul. I scored 7/10 as against his 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, and 7. I was lucky, in that I only learned very recently what a “doula” is (question 3).
I see that Russia is castigated for bringing in legislation criminalizing the dissemination of “disinformation” etc on broadcasts and elsewhere. A police-state measure, they cry. Well, yes, but I have seen no msm sources as yet admit that the present UK government is also planning to bring in very similar measures this year, likely to include criminalization of “false” (dissident) assertions on social media..
First Past The Post voting results in “undemocratic” elections and/or apathy, but also in tactical voting. The recent couple of LibDem by-election successes, as at Amersham, have not shown the true picture, which is that, ever since the 2010-2015 Con Coalition, the LibDems have been declining from a major, or near-major, party to a minor and even fringe one.
The LibDems are now dependent on squeezing in at elections in places where the Conservative Party (usually) will win if LibDem and Labour voters do not vote tactically, but where the LibDems can win if Labour voters decide to vote tactically.
The results in general elections show the history: a peak in 2005 (62 MPs out of 646), under now-deceased alcoholic multikulti zealot Charles Kennedy, reducing slightly in 2010 (57 out of 650), collapsing in 2015 (8 out of 650) after the Con Coalition, then rising in 2017 to 12 out of 650; the 2019 result brought only 11 MPs out of 650.
In fact, FPTP voting never shows the full picture. In 2015, the LibDem collapse (from 57 MPs to 8) was not fully reflected in the popular vote (a reduction from 6,836,248 votes to 2,415,862, a far less-steep fall.
The decline in LibDem fortunes at Westminster has been mirrored in the devolved legislatures of Scotland and Wales. Scotland: 17 out of 129 MSPs in 1999, but only 4 out of 129 now. Wales: 6 out of 60 members in 1999, but only 1 out of 60 now.
All that having been said, I cannot see the LibDems doing other than continuing to decline. LibDemmery is a tradition which far predates the LibDem party, and goes back to the old Liberal Party, to the days when Liberals became Prime Ministers, before the First World War. Long gone days; the days of LibDem MPs may also be nearing their end.
After a conspiratorial campaign by a pack of Zionist Jews connected with the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism [“CAA”], I was finally expelled from Twitter in 2018. Nick Griffin is still just about there, but only just. His name cannot be searched for, and Twitter has restricted his content. It cannot be long before his Twitter account goes entirely (and I suspect that it has only been allowed to keep going this long so that State and Zionist organizations can see who interacts with it etc).
We in the UK, and across much of “the West”, are not getting accurate news or, rather, accurate comment. It seems clear to me that the invasion is slowly going Russia’s way, as far as the securing of main objectives is concerned .
Some hotheaded or biased talking heads and scribblers in the UK and USA are shouting for a “no-fly zone”, and suggesting that that would not necessarily mean war with Russia. Cloud-cuckoo land. It would. Others are suggesting that aerial warfare between NATO and Russia would not lead to a general war. It would. Yet others are suggesting that even a war with Russia would not necessarily be nuclear. It would.
Staff colleges in the West undertook exercises during the Cold War to see whether tactical (“battlefield”) nuclear weapons could be used without triggering an all-out strategic nuclear exchange, or whether such an exchange could be halted in its early stages. In all cases, the exercises ended with both sides using all their nuclear missiles.
The present madness is being stoked, as in 1939, by the Jewish-Zionist element in the USA and UK.
Madness? What else is it, when many brainwashed people are considering a major European war, or even nuclear war, acceptable, just because Russia has invaded a country which, until 1991, was effectively part of its own territory, with which country or territory the UK is not allied, and never has been.
How can any advanced society be created with inhabitants of that sort? They are like something out of the Stone Age. In fact, even our existing society cannot be maintained, and is slipping into the mire.
Another recent case:
“Liverpool Crown Court heard that the defendants lived in Manchester, Birmingham and London. They are all Somalian but come from a specific area with its own dialect of Bravenese and were assisted by the only Bravenese interpreter in the country.”
They should not even be in the UK, nor in any part of Europe. At best, completely useless, at worst a huge pest, and in fact a potential social danger.

It looks as if Putin will have to commit huge new military forces or reserves to the campaign if it is going to achieve its main strategic objectives.

Can you believe that this country is now, possibly, going to be (mis)led into a war with Russia, with inevitable huge destruction via nuclear attack, by idiots like Boris Johnson, Liz Truss, Priti Patel, Ben Wallace etc? Jesus Christ! They make the British politicians of the pre-1914 or pre-1939 eras look like great minds!
