Guy Fawkes Day

Remember, remember the 5th of November,

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot,

Life is short but memory long,

And traitors deserve to be shot.

I am no Trump partisan, but the situation is not without its suspicious aspects. Also, I find it very suspicious that the msm drones are all saying that “there is no evidence” for any chicanery.

In the longer term, one can see a general “culture war” developing, or continuing to develop, first in the USA, then elsewhere. Rudolf Steiner wrote about a far-future “War of All Against All”, and one can see the vague outlines even now: racial conflict, ideological conflict, old against young conflict, rich against poor, employed against unemployed; self-employed against both of those. Then we have male v. female, feminists v. men, and also against non-feminist women; feminists and others against “trans people”. The categories noted would not be a full list.

As far as the USA is concerned, I wonder how long it can exist as one state or (as it originally was) a federation of states. The divisions are great even as between the labels “Democrat”/”Republican”, which labels hide —to an extent— other divisions.

It might seem simplistic to suggest an “Alfred the Great” solution (as when he agreed to the “Danemark” in part of Eastern England, but maybe some of the states of the USA could develop into semi-official and more or less autonomous “ethnostates”. There have been small attempts, mostly in the Pacific Northwest: Idaho, Oregon, Washington state etc.

Slowly slowly, the toytown police state becomes a real one. Oh, yes, wearing velvet gloves— at first…

Stalin would have had lying and/or careless “experts” such as Whitty, Vallance and Ferguson, inter alia, shot. Their activity has resulted in massive damage to Britain, in all ways—economic, social, political, and health-wise.

“Boris” Johnson may, superficially or nominally, carry the rank of Prime Minister, but in reality has none of the ability, and is able to command none of the respect.

How much difference a few months makes…

Nazim Ali

I have blogged briefly in the past week and also a couple of years ago about the persecution of a London pharmacist and Palestinian, Nazim Ali, a persecution carried on by the (or part of the) Jewish (Jew-Zionist) lobby, namely the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].

At first, the “CAA” tried to bear false witness against Nazim Ali, in order to support the CAA’s complaint about him to the police. When the police and CPS refused to prosecute Ali, the CAA made application in the High Court for a judicial review of the no-prosecution decision. That failed miserably. Comprehensively trashed by the Court.

The CAA then turned to another method of attack— the abuse of professional regulation. My own 2016 case in the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal was the template for such “lawfare” abuse by the Jew-Zionist lobby: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

After my case, Gideon Falter, the Director of the CAA, explicitly said to the (uncritical) Press (Judenpresse/Lugenpresse) that anyone making remarks critical of Jews “would face devastating professional consequences“. In fact, Falter and his fellow plotters had miscalculated (I had given up Bar practice anyway, 8 years previously! The deadhead…

The case brought by the CAA against Nazim Ali has been heard over the past week or so (and today is still being heard) in the disciplinary tribunal of the General Pharmaceutical Council.

What Nazim Ali said on the relevant occasion in 2017 (the Al Quds march in London) has now been found to be not “antisemitic” (not that there is anything unlawful about being “antisemitic” anyway, as the Crown Court judge said in one of the Alison Chabloz appeals).

A Jew-Zionist, apparently present at the judgment, tweets…

An anti-Zionist answers on Twitter:

Nazim Ali has been put through hell by those bullying Jew-Zionists. Here’s one of “them” enjoying Ali’s stress as the Tribunal vindicated him:

When the going gets tough, the tough get going…

Looks as though binned ex-MP [Lab, Stoke on Trent North, 2015-2019], Zionist conspirator and one-time “confidential source” of the US Embassy in London, Ruth Smeeth, has been comfort-eating since the loss of her Westminster seat.

Still, “they” gave her a well-paid sinecure as “Chief Executive” of a fairly obscure charity, Index on Censorship, so she can scarcely complain. Also, now that Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer has become Leader of the “paper tiger” Labour Party, she is again in with that sad rump of a party, and may even be given a safe Labour seat (if any still exists).

Democracy in action. Even the dead have voting rights!

In the UK, it’s different. Since the Blair era, you cannot even form a political party (and contest elections etc) without getting approval from the Electoral Commission, a Blair-established quango. You may say, “Well, I’m sure that they would not prevent a party from putting up candidates“, but in fact they can, do, and have…

Of course, any overt “antisemitism” or “racism” and they will just close down your fledgling party without more ado…

And that is even before any interference by the “Equality and Human Rights Commission” [“EHRC”], as seen in the recent Labour Party travails.

Ursula Haverbeck

Ursula Haverbeck, a political prisoner in Angela Merkel’s ZOG police-state Germany, has finally been (again) freed from prison.

Furlough extension

As I predicted some months ago, the “furlough” scheme (stay at home on 80% of pay up to £2,500 per month) is being extended fot several months. Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak would probably have preferred not to do that, but without it (in circumstances where the “lockdown”/shutdown madness is being restarted and likely as not continued for months to come) would mean millions more unemployed and a huge political backlash.

This way, the political backlash is bought off (for now), and while the cost to the Treasury is huge, so would be millions of unemployed people.

Early evening foray

Went out just before dark to get fuel for car and check tyre pressures about 5 miles away. Surprising amount of highway traffic (rural/semi-rural A-road) in what is an area without nearby large towns or cities. I thought that everything or almost everything was supposed to be shut. So where are these cars all going?

When there is no self-knowledge

I happened to see this tweet from the Council of Europe:

Ah. Free speech. Unless you want to say something “unapproved” about the “holocaust” farrago (in almost all EU states). Key recent names? Alison Chabloz (barred from entering France for 40 years); Dieudonne (imprisoned); Ursula Haverbeck (repeatedly imprisoned); others too.

Incidentally, the above tweet was retweeted by self-describing “journalist” and “historian” (a sacked one-time temporary teacher), Mike Stuchbery, an “antifa” cheerleader who spends an inordinate amount of time (well, I suppose that he has a lot of time on his hands) trying to get people’s free speech removed by complaining about them to Twitter, Facebook, other social media sites, even the police, and even to German security organizations. What a pathetic hypocrite! https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/.

Nazim Ali— Update

Well, Nazim Ali’s case concluded at the tribunal of the General Pharmaceutical Council. While what he said at the Al Quds march in 2017 was determined to be “not ‘antisemitic’“, his words were determined to be “offensive“. He was, in other words, found technically guilty. The tribunal decided that azim Ali should be given an official warning as sole penalty.

So there it is. The malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake charity has tried for 3 years to “get” Nazim Ali. They sent Jew spies to the Al Quds march, badgered the police and CPS, went to the High Court, lost aain; finally had minor success when the General Pharmaceutical Council decided to raise a disciplinary case against Nazim Ali. Now we see the net result of all that plotting and conspiring: a mere “warning”…

Another CAA failure. Falter, Silverman, Glasman, Applebaum etc will be gnashing their teeth, wailing and, metaphorically, eating bitter herbs…

Having said that, the pharmaceutical profession regulator should not have become involved at all.

EU Elections 2019 in Review: Labour

Labour did not do well at the EU elections: 3rd-placed with 2,347,255 votes, a 13.7% vote share, and 10 MEPs (down from 20). Labour only got two-thirds as many votes as the LibDems, and far less than half as many votes as Brexit Party attracted.

Remain whiners are saying that that happened because Labour did not proclaim itself as anti-Brexit and/or pro a second EU referendum. That is a doubtful proposition, in that it seems that more Labour voters voted Leave than Remain in 2016. What probably is correct is in saying that Labour’s message was mixed, or that Labour and Corbyn were “fence-sitting” re. Brexit (true, but what else can he do?). Parties that had a clear Brexit message (Brexit Party, LibDems, Greens) did better than those with mixed messages (Conservative and Labour). In the Russian proverb, “if you chase two hares, you won’t catch one”.

True, Change UK and UKIP had clear messages either way on Brexit and both failed miserably, but in the case of UKIP, Brexit Party simply took its votes and was seen as the bandwagon on which to jump; Change UK was just seen as a joke (there was something of that in UKIP too, it having joined with the “alt-Right” wastes of space “Sargon of Akkad” Carl Benjamin, “Prison Planet” Paul Watson and “Count Dankula” Mark Meechan).

Labour did not come in 1st place in any of the EU constituencies and, in the 5 constituencies where it came 2nd, was far behind Brexit Party (and typically with less than half of the votes of Brexit Party), with the sole exception of London, where Labour came 2nd to the LibDems (23.9% vote, LibDems on 27.2%).

Labour’s campaign was weak, and the Jewish-Zionist element was, as always, still there, sniping from cover at Corbyn and his (as far as I can see) very limited if even existent “anti-Semitism”.

Labour’s best argument in respect of Westminster elections has been, for the past 9 years, that it is not the Conservative Party. That trend has continued and strengthened under Corbyn. Is that enough?

True, Labour has policies designed to appeal to the middle-of-the-road voter (public ownership of some utilities, rail lines etc, a fairer deal for tenants, promises of more money for NHS etc).

On the other hand, if a voter wants to really give the Conservatives a kick, particularly in usually-Conservative-voting areas or in marginal Con-LibDem (Westminster) constituencies, that angry former Labour voter or floating voter might well do better to vote Brexit Party rather than Labour, because in strongly Conservative areas, Labour has no chance anyway in most years, whereas the LibDems are often the second party in such areas. Such a voter could (obviously) just vote LibDem straight off. Many voters, though, if there is a 3-way Con-LibDem-Brexit Party split (realistically), may want to vote Brexit Party rather than LibDem in the hope that a BP candidate can come through the middle to win, or because the LibDems enabled the 2010-2015 “coalition” government.

As to the impact of Brexit Party on Labour seats in the North and Midlands, I should assess it as potentially very damaging, but difficult to quantify. It is not just that Corbyn is said to be unpopular. It is also a question of Labour’s failure to stand up for (real) British people, for white neighbourhoods and communities. Labour failed to stem mass immigration and in fact encouraged it (of course, we now know from a whistleblower that Labour Jews such as Barbara Roche, and Phil Woolas, deliberately imported millions of non-European immigrants in order to destroy our race and culture).

There is also the connected fact that Labour never even admitted the nature and extent of the sexual exploitation of young girls by Pakistani gangs across the country, and particularly Northern England. In fact, Labour covered up the crimes, assisted by Common Purpose organization members in the police and in local councils.

The Labour voters who voted Green in the EU elections (held under proportional voting) will mostly return in a Westminster election (held under FPTP voting) because in the Westminster election, a Green vote is a wasted vote, without doubt.

If Brexit Party can take away 10% or more of what would otherwise be the Conservative vote, the Conservative Party is badly damaged (as when UKIP got 12% in 2015). If Brexit Party can get an overall 20%, the Conservative Party is toast except in a few very safe seats. Labour voters should therefore (whatever they think of Farage and his party) vote Brexit Party and not Labour, unless Labour is in a very strong position to win in any particular seat.

Labour has a good chance of forming a minority government or even a (small?) majority one if a general election is held soon, meaning in 2019, maybe 2020. The Conservatives are despised, divided, and weakened both internally and by the upstart Brexit Party. I blogged recently about how the Conservatives might try to limp on to 2022, when the reduction in MP numbers to 600 and accompanying boundary changes will cost Labour as many as 30 MPs. Much depends also on whether Brexit Party is a flash in the pan or a growing menace to the Conservatives.

I wrote the following after the Stoke-on-Trent by-election of 2017:

Labour has been declining for years. Corbyn is both symptom and cause. The disappearance of the industrial proletariat has swept away the bedrock underneath Labour, replacing it by the sand of the “precariat”. Labour imported millions of immigrants, who are now breeding. The social landscape becomes volatile. The political landscape too.”

I see no reason to change my view.

Update, 6 June 2019

The tweet below, from the Peterborough by-election, illustrates my often-posted belief that the Labour core vote is now largely composed of the “blacks and browns”:

More proof…

In other words, Labour is now the party of the blacks and browns.

Update, 21 September 2019

…from the Independent, “reporting” on beach patrols at Dover; all too typical of the sort of persons now prominent in “Labour” and what is left of the trade unions:

Riccardo La Torre, firefighter and Eastern Region Secretary of the Fire Brigade Union, branded the coast patrol “despicable” and said: “These have-a-go, racist vigilantes have no place in any kind of enforcement or emergency activities and will only serve to make conditions and tensions worse.”

“These groups claim to be the voice of the working class, but now they want to act as an arm of the authorities by patrolling beaches to apprehend struggling working-class people desperately trying to get to safety.
[https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/far-right-britain-first-beach-patrols-calais-dover-anti-migrant-a9113471.html]

So “Riccardo La Torre” (que?), a regional secretary of the Fire Brigade Union, thinks that migrant invaders from Africa and the Middle East are “working class people”, who are “trying to get to safety”?!

Safety from, er, France? There you have in a nutshell, the craziness that is much of “Labour” now. Alien migrant-invaders are “working class people”, who should be allowed to occupy the UK at will (and be subsidized too)! Note the fag-end “Marxism”, trying to shoehorn the facts into some 1980s polytechnic back-of-postcard Marxism-Leninism.

Stoke Central and Copeland: the aftermath for Labour and UKIP

The by-elections in Stoke Central and Copeland have been held. The public relations people for Labour (UKIP seems to have no public relations section) are still trying to spin positives out of the Stoke result and even the Copeland defeat. The time has come to look to the future based on what can be taken from these by-elections.

The Result in Stoke Central

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoke-on-Trent_Central_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

The Result in Copeland

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copeland_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

First Thoughts

I blogged before the poll that, if UKIP failed to win Stoke Central, that that would surely be the end or at least beginning of the end for it as a serious contender. I have also blogged and tweeted for 18 months my view that UKIP peaked in 2014. I have no reason to change those views now.

As a candidate, Paul Nuttall was fairly poor, not resilient, not intelligent, not really passionate enough politically. The UKIP organization or administration of the campaign also seemed poor. Overall, as in the past, UKIP seemed to be afraid to really set the campaign alight. The law being what it now is, UKIP could hardly have copied the successful 1960s Smethwick Conservative by-election candidate whose posters said “if you want a n****r for a neighbour, vote Labour”, but UKIP seemed to want to bypass the race/culture question entirely. There was no bite to the UKIP campaign.

The Labour candidate at Stoke Central, Gareth Snell, might fairly be described as “a poorly-educated and spotty Twitter troll, living mainly if not entirely off his allowances and expenses as a local council leader, who seems never to have had a non-political job (except a trade union one of some kind)”. In some respects he was a worse candidate than Paul Nuttall.

One has to bear in mind the heavily-industrial, heavily-Labour-voting history of Stoke-on-Trent. Labour has always had a built-in advantage there. The Conservative candidate, Jack Brereton, though looking like a schoolboy, did well to come a close third to Labour and UKIP, though in fact the Conservative vote increased by only a modest 1.8 points over the 2015 result.

Apathy or hostile apathy was the real winner in Stoke Central. 62% of the electorate did not vote. No party energized them to come out to vote for it.

As to Copeland, the main point that leaps out, apart from the obvious Labour car crash, is the poor performance of UKIP.

Future View

UKIP

UKIP surely must be finished now. It started in 1993 and in the nearly 24 years since then has failed to win a single Westminster seat, save for that of former Conservative MP Douglas Carswell, who is really just a Brexit Conservative and “free market” globalist.

UKIP would have been in a far better position had it won even a couple of seats at the 2015 General Election, but, in the irritating phrase, “we are where we are”. Theresa May’s Brexit policy has “shot UKIP’s fox” on the EU.

That leaves immigration, race and culture. UKIP now seems to have many spokesmen who are not of European race, so UKIP is not even offering the UK a white persona, a white country, if you like.

The conclusion is clear: UKIP is pointless, hopeless and must go.

Labour

Labour has been declining for years. Corbyn is both symptom and cause. The disappearance of the industrial proletariat has swept away the bedrock underneath Labour, replacing it by the sand of the “precariat”. Labour imported millions of immigrants, who are now breeding. The social landscape becomes volatile. The political landscape too.

The elimination of “socialism” from Labour led to focus-group rudderlessness, surely personified by Tony Blair, who has no principles, no real ideology, just careerism, self-seeking and politically-correct non-thinking. Labour became a party made in Blair’s image. It has no real ideology any more, not even social-democracy.

By 2020, the House of Commons will consist of 600 MPs, reduced from the current 650. Labour is currently at about 25% in the opinion polls and it is likely that, in 2020, Labour will have between 100 and 200 MPs in the House. Labour cannot now form even a coalition or minority government. It will slowly crumble.

The Future Beyond 2020

A new social nationalist party must be formed. It must be ideologically clear, administratively disciplined, capable of gaining trust and credibility. When a crisis comes, that small party may be able to seize control, as has happened before in history.

Update, 23 April 2019

I am updating because there has been much water under the bridge in the past 2 years and 2 months. Labour did fail to become the largest party in the Commons at the 2017 General Election, held a few months after the above was written. However, the Conservatives lost ground. Labour has trailed in the opinion polls since I wrote the above blog post, but just recently has managed to come back, not really on its own merit but because the Conservatives under Theresa May have had a complete car crash in several respects, especially Brexit. Labour has been sitting on the fence, not exactly a “cunning plan” but effective enough…

Update, 20 November 2020

The world turns…the 2019 General Election finished off the “15 minutes of fame” political career of Gareth Snell. He lost out to the Conservative Party candidate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gareth_Snell; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoke-on-Trent_Central_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.

As for the planned reduction of MP numbers to 600 (from 650), that will not now occur.

Update, 6 December 2020

I just noticed that my prediction of Labour MP-strength in the House of Commons (100-200 by 2020) was right: the Labour Party now has 200 MPs (201, if presently-suspended Jeremy Corbyn is included).

At date of writing, and despite the appalling incompetence of the Boris Johnson government, Labour under Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer is still trailing a few points behind the Conservative Party.
