The defendant attacked a Jew lawyer who was himself, not long before the attack, quite violent (and had to be restrained). The defendant then, having been ejected from the pub where both parties had been drinking (incidentally, one in which I myself have had a drink once or twice, though about 30 years ago) returned and attacked the alleged victim, so could not, in law, have pleaded self-defence.
The alleged victim apparently suffered considerable injury.
I can see why the defendant was charged with “s.18” GBH (Grievous Bodily Harm with intent) rather than the lesser “s.20” GBH, the defendant having returned to the alleged victim (accompanied by his, the defendant’s, sons). There was, plainly, an intent both to attack the alleged victim and also to inflict serious harm upon him.
Where I find the matter unjust is in the sentence.
A nine-year sentence! Almost ludicrously harsh on the facts (at least as presented in the newspaper), and in this case the defendant has been sentenced to serve 2/3 of that, meaning 6 years.
I hope that the defendant will appeal this seemingly harsh sentence.
Another point that interested me was that the alleged victim says that the defendant “goaded” him “into revealing [the alleged victim’s] ethnicity“, i.e. that he is a Jew. So he wanted to keep it secret or unremarked upon to some extent? I seem to recall that Dr. Goebbels once commented on what he implied was a typical attitude:
We sometimes forget quite how violent and uncontrolled London life was in the past (too).
John Rentoul’s quiz tweet of the week
Well, I usually do better than John Rentoul (almost always, in fact), and this week was no exception: John Rentoul scored 6/10, but I beat him easily with 9/10. The question to which I did not know the answer was question 6 (though I looked up the answer and realized that I did, sort-of, or in the back of my mind, know it, so I nearly scored, for the first time in these Saturday quizzes, 10/10. Damn). Still, 9/10 it is, this week.
Labour now represents mainly the ethnic minorities (except Jews, wealthy Indians and Chinese), the public service workers (esp. NHS), and the so-called “woke”. So where should it be based? Brixton? Spitalfields?
I wonder whether that clown is receiving (but unable to touch at present) monies deposited offshore for him, or has any promise of such monies? I should not be surprised.
Well, the UK electoral system is manifestly unjust, of course. The following example from the General Election of 2015 makes the point:
Boundaries can be (and are) drawn to achieve a desired result:
Alles gut…but frankly I think that my analysis, in blogs of the past couple of days, has been far better (immodest though that reads…).
The reality is that people are pushing back against both main System parties. In areas usually Conservative-voting, against the Conservative Party; in areas traditionally Labour, against the Labour Party. The people are frustrated.
The voters (and the many millions of non-voters) want something different, yet are presented with a System-controlled fake binary choice (plus a LibDem “dustbin” option, and here and there a few “controlled opposition” crank options), neither of which two main options they really want, or even respect.
Exactly. I have been blogging in that vein and, before that, tweeting (until a Jew pack managed to have my Twitter account closed down in 2018), for years.
In the UK, the self-describing “Left” and/or pseudo-socialists put out 95% of their effort into “deplatforming” those they have decided to hate (especially people like me, those with real ideas), rather than trying to present an alternative to global finance-capitalism, the New World Order (NWO), and Zionist Occupation Government(s) (ZOG).
In fact, the self-describing “Left” has no alternative to present, unless you count as a alternative world-view some farrago of “antiracism”, “antisexism”, compliance with Jew-Zionism (sometimes, absurdly, mixed with anti-Israel-ism), “holocaust” fables, anti-“Nazi” rhetoric, and a vague belief in the goodness or efficacy of washed-up societies such as Cuba or Venezuela.
The self-describing “Left” has not really understood yet that history left them behind in 1989 (some of them don’t even understand that history started to leave them behind in 1956).
Here we are, one year away from the next great pivotal year in the 33-year cycle, 2022, with the international conspiracy/consensus moving towards its “Great Reset”, and people in the UK are still talking or tweeting about “the Tories” and “Labour”, as if they really mean something fundamental. Those people do not understand that the System parties in the UK are like Soviet chocolate boxes— the chocolates differing in shape but with identical fillings.
As for “Leftism” (I myself have never designated politics as “Left” or “Right”), the following cartoon says it all:
The British people —what’s left of them— do not want or welcome evidence, they just want to be told that they are safe in all circumstances. All measures are accepted if that is the justification.
You have seen it in the last year or more of “panicdemic” measures. People are told that ludicrous facemask muzzles save them from the dreaded virus (which has —supposedly— killed about 1 in 1,000 UK people, but really far far fewer), and people want to believe that. Those who do not (and fail to wear them as mandated) are fined, and so deterred from not wearing facemasks. cf. “holocaust” “denial” laws in some countries.
The same or similar applies, mutatis mutandis, to the vaccine promotion etc.
The days are long gone when the Soviet Union might have invaded the UK; Russia today has no wish to do so, and no ideology to underpin that kind of strategy. If Russia ever were to invade, though, the British of today would roll up like a map…
Once the Queen goes, they all have to go. New page. New words. New lives.
Especially now that Labour has become a basically minority-ethnic party; at least, that is very much the direction of travel. Which means that most of the white British, especially white English, have just switched off from Labour. They might or might not vote Conservative, but Labour is very much yesterday’s news.
Again, nothing much to be added to that, except that that very slender Conservative Party win (another by-election, in 1959) was on different constituency boundaries.
Another accurate tweet.
Could that be because the voters feel that they have had no real choice?
As for Sky News, their figure for yesterday’s turnout was wildly wrong. Real turnout was about 42%…
More about Hartlepool later.
That Jessica Simor (((person))) seems to have little political nous; was a candidate for the always-doomed “Change UK” short-lived party, and gives me the impression of someone who seems to think that she takes the moral high ground. The air in Hampstead seems to have that effect on some of its residents. Oh, no, wait…https://order-order.com/people/jessica-simor/.
I enjoyed especially her tweet about how others have “unbelievable silver spoons stuck in their mouths“, which is often true in the UK (as elsewhere) but comes awkwardly from a woman who attended St. Paul’s Girls’ School and St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, followed by both City University and Kings’ College London!
Seems that some members of the Bar can, e.g. swear prolifically at people on Twitter without (Bar) censure, yet I —who only tweeted fivecompletely true and accurate tweets on political and social issues— had to be disbarred to placate the Jewish lobby: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/. Oh, and the great “human rights” barristers at, inter alia, Matrix Chambers (which Jessica Simor co-founded in 2000), said and tweeted not a word in defence of my rights to socio-political expression.
I was also surprised that the Simor woman, in one tweet in that Guido Fawkes report above, renders “I could make neither head nor tail of it” as “I couldn’t make head or tale of it.” That’s no more than semi-literate.

Yes. My mother-in-law (aged 99) was recently in hospital for a fracture. After 2 weeks under the hit or miss care of the NHS, she was routinely tested for “Covid-19”. Positive. She had no symptoms. Obviously picked up the virus in the hospital. Was discharged a week or so later. Had she then died from any cause, even in a car accident, she would have become another “died within 28 days of a positive test” statistic. The whole thing is a ludicrous misapplication of statistics and propaganda.
Sadly deluded. A student or ex-student who would have been more at home in Blair/Brown days, it seems.
Ha ha! How could this unthinking young Labourite miss the 4 years of Jewish-lobby bile against Corbyn? Every day, and on every msm platform! I am not even a Labour supporter (or member, or voter), and it was unmissable! Plots, conspiracies, legal cases…Labour Friends of Israel MPs and the rest.
Conservative Party first with 51.9%; Labour second with…28.7%. That’s the headline, of course.
Interesting to note that the eligible electorate is over 70,000. Of those, only 29,933 turned out to vote, and only 8,589 voted Labour. About 12% of the entire eligible electorate.
The demise of the LibDems was confirmed (again): 7th place, with only 1.2% of the vote (349 votes). The worst-ever LibDem result in the constituency, by far. The LibDems got 4.1% last time, in 2019; in 2017, only 1.8%, and in the 2015 meltdown, 1.9% (2010, 17.1%, but in 2005 they got 30.4% and 2nd place, and in 2004, which was another by-election, 34.2% and another 2nd place, that time only 6 and a half points behind the winning Labour candidate).
The 3rd, 4th and 5th places at Hartlepool were taken by an Independent, Sam (Samantha) Lee, a local businesswoman and former local journalist (note: local…), who achieved a creditable nearly 10% of the vote, then “Heritage” and “Reform UK” parties, effectively UKIP/Brexit Party offshoots. 1.6% and 1.2% respectively. Green Party took 6th place, also with 1.2% of the vote.
The Northern Independence Party, which I thought would get around 5%, in fact attracted only 235 votes (0.8%, 10th placed) and looks washed-up already. I had thought that their concept might prove attractive to many “up North”. Seems not. Not so far, at least. Rather unimpressive also that they are so disorganized that they failed to register in time with the Electoral Commission, so their candidate, Thelma Walker, a former Labour MP, had to stand as Independent. They might have done better under their real banner.
The remaining eight candidates were either Independents or crank-party candidates, and only one got more than 0.5% of the vote.
What does this result mean, in the wider sense? Firstly, that Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer is too colourless to make any impression at all. Part-Jew chancer and fraud “Boris” may be corrupt, incompetent, and unfit to be an MP, let alone PM, but he has (carefully-cultivated) presence, a fact recognized by the huge Munich-style effigy of him that appeared at the by-election count. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival_in_Germany,_Switzerland_and_Austria#Alemannic_Fastnacht
Reminiscent of Berlusconi in Italy a number of years ago, or of some banana republic.
As I have blogged before, Keir Starmer has nothing to offer the people, and nothing to say except “I was the Director of Public Prosecutions!”. Nothing to offer. Nothing at all. As some wag commented on Twitter a while ago, were the “Conservatives” to open workhouses in the manner of the Dickensian age, Starmer-Labour would be there to agree with the policy, but say that it should be run more efficiently and slightly more fairly…
Then we recall Starmer on his knees, with dim deputy Angela Rayner, not so long ago, professing fealty to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. That must have played well in Hartlepool, which has a proud, if poor, English/British history…
The problem Labour has, though, is not Starmer but its own identity and role. As I have blogged before, the System parties were all products of the 19th and early-20th centuries (taking the LibDems to be an extension of the old and once-governing Liberal Party).
Somewhere like Hartlepool may look superficially similar to what it did in 2010, 1997, 1980s, even 1960s, but the social changes in the UK have been huge. No large nationalized industries. Few manufacturing industries at all. A growing atomization of the individual in society. Lessening “community”. Growing socio-political volatility. Insecurity. The Internet. In places such as Hartlepool, a considerable drug problem to add to the traditional drink problem.
The old parties have no answers, and not even any questions, about all of that. What Hartlepool and many other places want, perhaps without knowing it, is social nationalism. A new socio-national community to replace the old forms of community that are now all but gone.
Look at that by-election: not one social-national candidate, not even from the joke “parties” such as For Britain or Britain First. The voters wanted rid of Labour. If you like, “Problem— get rid of fake Labour; Method— vote fake Conservative, or stay at home and watch fake reality-TV shows”. Apathy and abstention was enough to sink Labour, as in 2019.
Short and sweet (and true).
She’s right (for once). Where (I apprehend) she is wrong is in impliedly saying that Labour did better in 2017 because of Corbyn. Partly-true maybe, but had UKIP not taken 11.5% of the vote in 2017, Labour, though still in front, would have won by only about 5 points.
It was not always thus. I have never been a Labour member, supporter, or even voter, but many Labour MPs up until the 1980s were decent British ex-workers, others were at least reasonable intellectuals of sorts. I might not have agreed with all they said or did, but they had integrity, most of them. Now look! Since, say, 1989, freeloaders, careerists, expenses cheats, fakes. Jess Phillips, Ruth Smeeth (now binned), Patricia Hewitt (gone), Mandelson, the whole pack of Blair/Jew lobby MPs. Many are still around, unfortunately.
Look at Williams, the Hartlepool candidate that Labour put up: a medic who preferred to “get ahead” as an MP; formerly failed in another constituency; wanted to become a Police and Crime Commissioner too. Rather “dodgy” generally; pro-EU, pro-Jewish Lobby. Never trust a doctor who becomes a politician. A good rule of thumb, by the way.
“During the by-election campaign, Williams apologised for a tweet he posted in 2011: “Do you have a favourite Tory MILF? Mind-blowing dinner table conversation”. He was defended by Starmer, while Labour peer and former shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarticalled for him to be replaced “immediately”. Williams’ campaign featured a pledge to return hospital services to the town, but was accused of hypocrisy after it emerged that he was a co-author of a clinical commissioning group report which recommended the closure of those services in 2013.” [Wikipedia]
A social-national party, were one allowed to exist at all in what is a society of increasing socio-political repression, might not be “voted in” —because the (((System))) would probably make sure of that— but would be a way of gathering support for an attempt to seize power by any other means.

A pretty silly tweet. Corbyn, whatever his faults, was at least as “electable” as Starmer, but that is, well, not very…and the tweeter ignores the 4 years of Jewish propaganda carried on against Corbyn, on a daily basis, and on every single msm platform (and many online too).
Every single one of those MPs is either a Jew or a Jewish-lobby puppet. Expenses freeloader and anti-Corbyn plotter Tom Watson has not only been given the very well-paid sinecure previously occupied by Michael Dugher (another puppet of “the lobby”, now head of a betting organization) but is even getting paid non-political TV appearances. As people say, “ker-ching”…
Two stupid tweets for the price of one. They would probably like that Nigerian bigmouth, Femi Oluwole [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole], still posing as a political activist while living in his affluent parents’ attic, to be Labour leader! Don’t laugh too quickly! Of course, by then Labour will be about as popular as the LibDems are now…
For “British media”, read “Labour Party members”…
Maybe, but probably not. Had Corbyn done that, the Corbyn candidate would have got about half, maybe more, of the Labour vote at Hartlepool, but even taking that as maybe 25%+ (half of 50%+ as in the past), that would still be a close contest if the Conservatives were not also challenged by (as in the past) a Brexit Party or similar; which would probably still result in a Con victory…
System politicians rarely start new parties, mainly because few succeed. One of the few that might have done was Enoch Powell. He just might have gathered enough support from Conservative voters and others (eg National Front voters) to get a bloc of MPs. He decided, though, to reprise Parnell [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Stewart_Parnell], who controlled a bloc of pro-Home Rule (Irish Independence or autonomy) MPs in the 19thC; Powell thought to do that, on a smaller scale, with Ulster Unionists. Never got anywhere. He was too tied up in traditional thinking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoch_Powell.
If that was indeed Powell’s strategy, it was based on faulty thinking (surprising, in someone of Powell’s intellect): Parnell controlled around 90 MPs in the late 19thC; Powell could never have hoped for that with the Ulster Unionists.
In fact, that 2015 poster was one of the better Labour attempts. I suppose that the very silly tweeter hates the “control immigration” bit…but the migration-invasion and encouragement thereof was one of the aspects of Corbynism that appalled many voters…
Listening to PM for the first time in quite a while, heard an interview with Ben Houcher, the Teesside Mayor. Not very impressive in terms of content, but full of confidence, and his electoral result speaks for itself.
Then came an interview with three Labour activists. Not very interesting, though I agreed with their point that “Boris” is “an act” (as they put it), “supported by a sycophantic mass media“. Also true. None openly called for Starmer to go. They really should…
The most interesting thing heard was from the presenter, Evan Davis, in the Ben Houcher interview, who expressed the idea that politics in the UK is “going beyond Left and Right“. Well, I have been saying that for years, decades even. Always the Cassandra, usually right but rarely listened to…
Good to see.
Typical (?) UK Labour supporter of 2021: “ Historical novelist, THE SEA GATE out now. UK publisher of GRRM, Hobb, Lawrence, Feist; ex-Tolkien publisher; gardener. Married to a Berber chef. #CFC#Chelsea...Location Cornwall/Morocco”…[https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/].
Not that she is entirely wrong about the influence of the mass media, but she completely fails to see that the Conservative Party won Hartlepool not because the eligible voters were supporters of the Conservative Party and/or finance-capitalism (egged on by the msm) and voted accordingly, but because out of 70,000+ eligible voters, only about 8,500 went out to vote Labour.
Why? Because Labour is useless. It is now once more completely in the pocket of the Jew/Zionist/Israel lobby, and its MPs are mostly worthless chancers, expenses blodgers, and/or careerists; many of them (especially but certainly not exclusively the blacks) are also as thick as two short planks. Also, Labour scarcely opposes the Government at all, but supports it, or cavils at unimportant details (Keir Starmer was, after all, best known as a prosecution lawyer who became DPP).
The Conservative Party did not win Hartlepool— Labour lost it.
Incidentally, that lady “@JaneJohnsonBakr” is a director of HarperCollins publishers: https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/about/. Whatever her ideological leanings, I think that it can probably be surmised that she does not have the financial struggles common to most of the voters of Hartlepool, and it sounds as though she is far from them in terms of outlook, as well.
I do not think it unfair to say that there we have Labour’s problem in a nutshell. It can get the (apparent) support of a presumably rather affluent lady who, with her Moroccan husband, splits her time between her houses in Cornwall and Morocco, but it cannot get the support of over 60,000 of the 70,000 struggling English voters of somewhere like Hartlepool…
Here’s another of the lady’s tweets, expressly contemptuous of the British people:
I wonder whether she supported Tony Blair’s government?…
Not that she is wrong about “Boris”, of course; and the people are easily fooled, that’s true.
Mainstream media are predicting a Conservative Party victory, while continuing to pretend that a contest between two very similar System parties (and a few cranks and no-chances) is “democracy”, though it seems that, thanks to FPTP voting, the main binary choices will capture about 90%, maybe 95%, of all votes cast.
Turnout will probably be quite low.
I was just looking at a couple of tweets about the contest:
That refers to the outgoing (going, gone…) MP, Mike Hill, who denies sex pest allegations but who decided to stand down as MP because of them. Hm…Still, he can always return to work at the local library…or do a bit of useless trade union droning…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician)].
People may be surprised that I repost the tweet of a Jew-Zionist scribbler, but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say.
The fact is that communities such as Hartlepool are clutching at straws. That does not mean that they are totally stupid. True, the misnamed “Conservatives” are not worthy, and they have been in power, nationally, for 11 years now, but the voters of Hartlepool have had Labour MPs for nearly 50 years, and feel exploited. They can only bin Labour by voting Conservative (or at least staying at home and not voting).
In some countries at some times, failed political parties (members of) face imprisonment and even execution. In the UK, we are kinder. Those parties simply face political death. It happened to the once-all-powerful Liberal Party (though a ghostly shadow still exists, the LibDems), it is now happening to both Labour and Conservative parties. Labour first to go, it seems.
That one, above, the well-known Jewish actress, used to block me on Twitter, I think (my Twitter account was closed down by a Jew-Zionist claque-barrage of complaints in 2018) and even tweet against me occasionally. Correct here, though. Look at that tweet by one Grace Blakely:
Where does one start? Perhaps by expressing “surprise” (no, not really, not these days) that a young woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Blakeley] from a privileged background, privately-educated in Hampshire, and with (for what it is worth these days) a “First” from Oxford, prefers the philosophical-psychological term “ressentiment” to the straightforward standard English “resentment”…I suppose that she picked that up while doing her PPE back-of-postcard degree at St. Peter’s, Oxford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ressentiment
Secondly, by examining the claim that those with a “degree” (even if a “McDegree” from a “McUniversity”, are “the educated“. That is so Blair-1997…pretty outdated as a expression of reality.
Sadly, the “degree” from a “university” is no guarantee of real education, now that nearly half of all persons over 17 go to a “university”. Going to Oxford is no guarantee either, as both Grace Blakely and, for another example, Louise Mensch (if anyone remembers that stupid creature) bear witness.
As a matter of fact, both of the above are also examples of the pointlessness or near-pointlessness of Twitter. Grace Blakely has, apparently, 132,000 Twitter “followers”, while the lunatic Mensch has (looking at her Twitter account for the first time in a couple of years) 281,000! One Direction pop group has 31.5 million!
Grace Blakely is apparently appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Open University! This country is so screwed, it really is…

So what is left of the Royal Navy is being used to show the flag in a fishing dispute with a close ally of this country (Brexit notwithstanding), but 200+ migrant-invaders are being “rescued” and then escorted across the Channel by the same navy and/or the ludicrous Border Force, every day. Mad…

The revolution devours its own children…
This time, involving the tiny and unpleasant “Resisting Hate” “antifascist” troll-org, led by the well-fed Roanna Carleton-Taylor of (near) Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Seems that either Roanna Carleton-Taylor or an associate (she uses several Twitter accounts anyway) posted something involving a banana to a black, which apparently is considered “racist”, though I cannot see why. I myself eat the occasional yellow fruit, after all.
Anyway, there ensued a several-days-long Twitter storm in a teacup, which dragged in “Dr” Louise Raw (prolific pro-“antifa” tweeter) and at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish Zionist woman from North London.
“Dr” Raw has not tweeted for the past week, I now notice.
I concede that I have not followed the nonsense, and am merely amused at the supposed “anti-racists” of different types all tearing chunks out of each other.
The denouement? Roanna “antifashwitch”, the former “@Witchofpeace” on Twitter (she tweeted once about how she kills spiders when putting a curse on someone! Odd…I thought that that brought down bad luck upon the killer…), has changed her account to “@oilpaintwitch” and has posted this:
Can you “resign” from an “organization” that is just you yourself, with a few other idiots? Oh, well, there it is.
As I have blogged previously, I have never seen any of these sorts of “antifascist” and/or Jewish Zionist trolls offer any policies or ideas about how to improve society (except by advocating the “removal” of those they deem “Nazi”, “fascist”, “racist” etc). It’s all negative and all, at root, based around their own hate (they, unwittingly ironically, always claim to oppose “hate”, of course…). cf. “Hope Against Hate” etc.
I have to admit that I am rather curious as to what happened to the £12,000 that Roanna, Mike Stuchbery (the pro-“antifa” tweeter, would-be “journalist”, would-be “historian” and general grifter), and a Pakistani solicitor extracted, via GoFundMe, from 700 well-meaning (?) mugs, on the premise that Stuchbery was going to sue “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon). Never happened. As far as I know, the only action taken was a very poorly-drafted letter from the Pakistani, which may or may not have been delivered to “Robinson”.
Apparently, one of the minor candidates for London Mayor has been associating with some alleged fraudsters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/should-someone-who-wants-london-24047689. Strangely enough, though, I saw nothing in the msm about the fairly recent video put out by “Conservative” candidate Shaun Bailey, which featured a woman best described as a “Balkan fraud”, and who was convicted of both fraud and forgery at Southwark Crown Court in 2013. Come to that, Bailey himself was, arguably, lucky not to face more than a police investigation when his non-profit quasi-charity had to be wound up some years ago. Oddly enough, all the monies had disappeared, and large amounts had apparently been spent on hotels and restaurants for…Shaun Bailey.
Fortunately for West Indian-origined Bailey, the voters in today’s election will have voted by the time I post this; in any case, Bailey has little chance of beating Sadiq Khan in the contest.
I wonder why the Conservative Party picked Bailey? I remember seeing him on one of the Andrew Neil politics shows on the BBC, years ago. Unimpressive. A West Indian with a big mouth and not much of interest to say. I suppose that, London now being a mainly non-white city, the Con Party decided that it needed a non-white candidate. Well, that fell flat (it seems).
“Communism“? Socialism, surely? I thought that Hitchens was once a Marxist (Trotskyist)?
“From the sublime to the ridiculous”, 1960s Prime Minister Harold Wilson almost invariably smoked a pipe in public to show that he was one of “the people”, whereas in fact he preferred cigars (Havanas), not a very “proletarian” choice (even in Cuba).
Unwilling to register with the Independent, I cannot read that article, but the conclusion seems (based on the quoted remark) to be right. Starmer, the Jewish Lobby puppet, is (as I predicted from the start) hopeless and as dull as ditchwater, but he is no more “the problem” for Labour than was the rather different Corbyn.
Labour’s problem is that there is no longer a “proletariat” or (in the old sense) a “working class”, there is no more a bloc “Labour vote”, there are no more, or very few, “working class communities”, as such, no nationalized industries of any size, and no great loyalty to Labour, even in its traditional North and North-East heartlands.
The Labour Party itself has changed out of all recognition since its highest point of popularity in 1945. From being a largely socialist party, it moved to social-democracy and then, arguably, in the 1990s under Blair, ditched even that. It became really just a label (or as the egregious waste of space, freeloader, and careerist, Jess Phillips MP, put it, “just a ****ing rose“). Rather like those Latin American countries where the almost-identical parties distinguish themselves by colour: the Blancos v. the Colorados. Like football teams, or the racing silks in the Hippodrome at Byzantium.
It is hard to see now for what the Labour Party stands. Starmer seems to be saying that he supports almost all of what Boris-Idiot’s maladministration does, but that “Boris” should do it better!
In fact I saw a satirical comment to the effect that, were the “Conservative” misgovernment to reintroduce workhouses, Labour under Starmer would agree, but cavil that that should be done more efficiently and slightly more humanely! A joke? Yes, sort-of…but then look at the attack on the unemployed, disabled etc over the past 15-20 years. Which party really started that? Labour…Yes, the “Conservative” Jew-lobby regime of David Cameron-Levita made it worse, but all that nonsense started under Gordon Brown and his lunatic misgovernment, via Alastair Darling, Stephen Timms etc. They, not the Conservatives, brought in the crazily dysfunctional —and also dishonest— ATOS carpetbaggers, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_Capability_Assessment#History.
As I have often said, Labour is now basically the party of the blacks and browns and/or public service workers, which is why Labour eulogizes the NHS constantly (though the NHS is a very hit-and-miss service overall).
Really, one has to ask (again), “what (and who) is Labour for?”
I imagine that the victor in the upcoming local elections will be apathy, with few people turning out to vote.
This is the moment when a social-national party might make hay. If a social-national party actually existed. A real one, I mean, not the joke ones presently around.
Well, this week I did no better than John Rentoul; we both scored only 4/10 (though if I were to follow Rentoul’s usual practice, I could award myself an extra half-point for knowing that Father Ted was set on an Irish island, though I did not know its name). I had no idea as to questions 1, 2, 7, 8, and 10.
Shchi [щи], or Russian cabbage soup, is one of those things that can be either very pleasant or not very pleasant, other examples being borshch [борщ](beetroot soup), kvass [квас](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kvass) etc.
I suppose it is true of some British foods too. In the end, it is, of course, a question of taste. De gustibus non est disputandum. I like oysters; many do not. I like caviar (when afforded); many do not. I like (boiled and then fried) buckwheat kasha (probably because I ate it daily at one time, long ago); many do not, and think such a choice very odd indeed.
I have no particular animus against Boris-Idiot’s latest “ho” (to use the amusing American black term), but it is scandalous if (and it seems that) the woman has any but purely peripheral and personal influence on national affairs. After all, with the best will in the world, she got to her present position of influence on her back, to put it perhaps slightly crudely and…well, let’s leave that there! Suffice to say that she has never been elected, or even appointed, to any position of significance (and, no, I do not regard her unsuccessful period pumping out propaganda for Conservative Party HQ as that).
The woman likes animals, we are told. I approve heartily of that; and if (as it seems from what I have seen in photos) she has no taste, or employs an expensive interior decorator who has no taste, well…that is the way of the world. If her refurbishment at Downing Street is more “nouveau” than simply new, well…again…these things happen.
I should not like to tar Carrie Symonds with the brush justly censuring Boris-Idiot, but that immunity disappears if, as often claimed, she is interfering with, or even deciding, policy.
Watching The Keys of the Kingdom, it again occurred to me how many deeply Christian films were made by Hollywood in its days of greatness, despite the fact that all or almost all studios were owned by Jews. Ben Hur would be just one other example, others yet being Quo Vadis, The Robe, etc.
Today, it is different. Film studios are now usually not only owned by Jews, but the films often directed by Jews, and those films tend to be bitterly Zionist (often promoting the “holocaust” narrative) and/or serving a materialist agenda. Spielberg is only one example.
Wonderful. A stand taken against the “control” agenda.
As far as the facemask nonsense is concerned, the fear engendered by the System propaganda of a year ago is only a veneer now. Few really believe that everyone is at risk of death. They know (or have guessed something similar) that only 1 in 4,000 people in the world has been killed by “Covid-19”, and that even in swamped (by immigrants and tourists) Britain, only 1 in about every 1,000 people has died from “the virus” (or, more accurately, “within 28 days of a positive test”, though in reality from other conditions).
No doubt the propagandists will try to enforce continued facemask muzzling, but the people are already giving up, despite the dictatorial and possibly invalid “laws”, “rules” etc. The social pressure is less now, as well. I filled up the car with fuel a few days ago and genuinely forgot to put on a disposable mask as I went to pay at the kiosk. A woman exited, also maskless, and the cashier, likewise maskless, did not ask me to put on any mask; in fact, the matter was not mentioned, and she even smiled, a fact I attribute either to her sunny personality or to my charming manner…
In what were “normal” times, this present government of clowns could and would not exist, certainly not for long, but we have a situation in which there is no legitimate government, yet also no legitimate nor effective official Opposition or opposition party. The former Labour leader, Corbyn, who was weak, and was a bit of a joke, but at was least anti-Zionist (up to a point), was replaced by the Jew-lobby puppet, Keir Starmer, whose idea seems to be to say, all the time, to the Government “we support 90% of what you do, but you should be doing it better…oh and doing it on bended knee, and wearing a facemask“!
I should not be surprised if Labour under Starmer were to start to do worse in elections even than under Corbyn and Miliband.
In Scotland, looks as though Scottish Labour (led now by a Pakistani) has pretty much given up (see tweet below):
Well, this week I scored 8/10, thus again beating political journalist, and diehard Blairite, John Rentoul, though he managed 7/10, far better than his embarrassing 1/10 of last week (I always give him full credit for honesty, though). The questions which I was unable to answer this week were questions 6 and 8.
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”…
The present “white race” of post-Atlantean humanity is not merely an evolutionary summit; it is also the basis for future evolution.
Further to earlier blog posts, it seems that the post date of 17 December may in fact not be the date of trial but merely the date on which some preliminary matters of importance are sorted out. I shall post more details as and when I may have them.
So far, the auguries look good for Alison Chabloz, who continues to struggle for artistic and historical truth.
[Latest word is that a trial may not take place until the Spring of 2021, assuming that the matter is not dropped or dismissed]
Exactly. Oh, and don’t think that, when you see or hear Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Keir Starmer or others temporarily prominent (including the “royals”), you are observing the organ-grinders; they are just a few of the controlled monkeys.
When “Coronavirus” first was publicized, about February/March 2020, I thought, for a couple of weeks (as did most people) that it really was some kind of existential threat to the British and world population. I dismissed the “it’s a scam” talk as typically American “conspiracy theory” stuff. I soon realized (unlike most people) that “the virus” was neither as prevalent nor as deadly as billed. Now I see that it has been weaponized for use in the “Great Reset”, just like “Black Lives Matter” (etc) and the climate change narrative.
There is some truth in all of those problems, but they have all been deliberately blown up, and hugely, to fool the world.
How extraordinary that the Johnson Government, while in serious money trouble, chooses to spend billions on a vaccine against a disease which in many cases has no symptoms at all.
Yet this peculiar decision is a mere ripple on the surface of a much deeper problem. Britain in 2020 has many economic difficulties, but good credit. The lenders and investors of the world believe the UK is run by responsible people and will repay its debts.
But my astute colleague Dan Atkinson recently discovered
that the Treasury and the Bank of England are creating money out of nothing on a huge scale. It is like the old fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin, who could spin gold out of straw – but at a terrible price.
Put at its simplest, more than £150 billion of Britain’s Himalaya-sized national debt has effectively been paid off – at no cost – using money created by, and passed between, the Treasury and the Bank of England.…” https://hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/
Mentally-disturbed “antifa” cheerleader, Mike Stuchbery (a sacked one-time temporary teacher who prefers to self-describe as “historian” and “journalist”) gets his facts wrong yet again.
In fact, Alison Chabloz was (wrongly) convicted in Spring 2018, and was made subject to a ban on Internet posting, a ban which was of 1 year duration. That condition expired in Spring 2019. Her appearance in court today (in respect of a podcast from mid-2019) was nothing to do with alleged breach of bail conditions (she was not in fact on bail for anything at the time of the alleged offence, though she is now, in respect of this present alleged offence); her prosecution now is in respect of an alleged breach of Communications Act 2003 s.127, a notoriously badly-drafted and repressive law which is under review at present by the Law Commission.
Looking at Stuchbery’s tweet, and the headline from “Court News UK“, I can only assume that the latter organization is run by Jew-Zionists. The headline is in itself tendentious.
In fact, Alison Chabloz was not “hauled back to court” (in the pathetically biased Sun-speak description of Court News) for breach of that suspended sentence, as such. If and only if she is convicted of a further offence, and the court also finds that any offence was convicted within the “operational period” of the suspended sentence as a whole (2 years from early 2018), would it be necessary for the court to consider whether any extra penalty need be handed down.
In fact, the prosecution is a contrivance and nothing more. I doubt whether Alison Chabloz will be convicted of anything.
The latest news is that the (notionally, 1 day) trial of Alison Chabloz, if it proceeds (which I doubt) will not occur until some time in 2021, possibly not until after April 2021. I myself was unaware until today of the fact that pleas (of “guilty” or “not guilty”) have not yet been taken! Also, there are a number of preliminary matters which will be dealt with (perhaps) on 17 December. That will, it seems, not be the date of trial (contrary to the situation as previously thought).
“Arfur Towcrate”…amazing (or maybe not) how most of the “Zionists” like to use pseudonyms on Twitter. It is natural for “them” to skulk in dark corners.
No comment from me necessary, I think…
Take a look at the tweet below:
The idiot may have benefited (or as he says, “benefitted“) from State nutritional aid, aka “free school meals”, but it seems that he did not benefit much from what I take to have been about 13 years of school. Seems incapable of writing three sentences without grammatical and spelling mistakes. His tweets are stupid and meaningless. Who is he?
That person has 118,000 “followers” on Twitter. A pointer to the near-irrelevance of the platform. Take a look at his tweets…and despair (that the UK or the world contains 118,000 who think him in some sense interesting and worth reading).
As I have previously suggested, Trump could do one thing which would make a difference at the last minute: free by Presidential pardon all social-national or allied prisoners currently doing time in Federal prisons. Some are serving life sentences.
No-one has the power to stop Trump freeing those prisoners.
Willing slaves…compleely brainwashed.
