Well, in view of the fact that, per head, and thanks to subsidies from England (in effect), Scotland’s population has about 20% more spent on it as compared to the population of England, that is unsurprising. Try keeping that level of service going when Scotland achieves its faux-“Independence” (if it ever does).
Seems as if at least one moneysaving expert has missed something in the past few months…
Get rid of the brainwashing, and the brainwashers.
It is amazing, when one thinks of it, how much of that which we take for granted as the backdrop of our lives is actually relatively new in the world. After all, the American “Wild West” was in the 19th Century; the American Indian wars (effectively a genocide) around the 1870s. Only about 150 years ago.
Likewise, much of Africa, though partly known in outline to Europeans for hundreds of years, was only colonized and developed over the past 150 years or so, and some only over the past century or so.
Australia, as a European colonized development, only goes back a couple of hundred years or so. As for Antarctica, its very existence was unknown until a Russian ship spotted it in, I think, 1808.
Radio— as a mass product, in the past century; TV— for most people, since the 1950s; Internet etc— for most people, since the mid-1990s, not even 30 years ago.
I personally do not have much confidence that our present form of civilization and/or society will last much longer. I am now 66, meaning that it is moot as to whether I myself shall be able to contribute directly to the creation of a new society (rather than merely inspiring “our unconquerable (ideological) children“) to create anew.
It may be, that it will only be possible to lay down the basis in this incarnation, akin to planting a seed, with the expectation that the seed will only germinate at a later period of history, when we shall reincarnate in order to carry through the project to a victorious conclusion. We may have to accept that.
Well, this week, political journalist John Rentoul scored the same as me: 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3, and 7 and, if truth be known, my correct answer to question 4 was an educated guess.
Slowly slowly catchee monkey…
In fact, the NWO/ZOG agenda is now accelerating, now that we are in 2022, the primary year of the 33 year-cycle ending when the next such year starts in 2055.
Already, banks in the UK have introduced restrictions on transfers of cash and other payments, and note a range of other transactions. It’s coming. Slow enfoldment.
2022, the most significant year since 1989. Previous such significant years were 1956 and 1923.
An octopus has quite high intelligence and sentience. I rarely buy seafood salad with octopus rings now for that reason.
I have wondered why Jews, especially, are and have been among the most fanatical for the “vaccines” and other “measures”, including the facemask nonsense. You see tweets from them claiming that they have, have had, or are afraid of getting “Covid”, as well as tweets (even now) fervently urging compulsory mask-wearing etc.
I think that this can all be traced back to an ingrained wish to be seen as the perennial “victim”, even when that is extremely implausible.
1945 was a setback, but not the complete defeat that it seemed at the time. The Reich was crushed, but the essence of National Socialism has survived in other forms, other places. It is still possible to create the basis for the necessary quantum leap in human evolution.
Even by “their” standards, Giles Coren is a horrible little bastard.
How long before Giles Coren plays the “antisemitism” card?
“Giles Coren“, in that tweet, could be replaced by many another name with equal truth: to name but a few, Boris Johnson, Dido Harding, and The Royal Cuck, Harry of that ilk, Formerly Known as “Prince”.
Translation— a total nut, probably living off a trust fund. America is in real trouble.
Stuchbery used to call himself “historian“, but was only ever one in the manner of someone who travels around (Germany, mainly), copies tourist information he sees here and there, then collates it into tweets.
Nothing wrong about that, in itself; in fact I have always said that I enjoy his tweets on mediaeval and Renaissance history (he is usually wrong about history after about 1880), but he is no historian.
Exactly. I read the local newspapers online, the ones for coastal Hampshire and Dorset. The court reports are interesting inasmuch that, even for me, a one-time barrister (albeit far more civil and commercial etc than criminal), the sentences often surprise by their leniency.
I am far from being a “hanger and flogger”, and I favour clemency where possible, perhaps even too much, but I now read of people who have committed crimes of considerable violence and brutality, not to mention egregious theft, being effectively “let off”.
You have to work quite hard to get imprisoned in the UK these days (unless the Jews say that you have been rude about them).
Example? A few years ago, I heard tell of a man, an accountant aged in his 40s, who had a paid job, I think part-time, with a really worthwhile hospice charity not far from where I myself live (about 2-3 miles away). That person stole (embezzled) £40,000 from the charity.
In court, the embezzler must have had Counsel very good at mitigation because, on the premises that the defendant’s parents had stumped up the £40,000 to compensate the hospice, the defendant got off with a suspended sentence, despite the egregious breach of trust, despite also the fact that he was only caught by chance or Fate, and despite the fact that he had initially tried to blame more junior staff.
No. Far too lenient.
For once I agree with that stupid woman. GPs, at least many, may be overpaid, and those that want an easier life may find it congenial to drop by the surgery a couple of days a week and still pick up a gross pay of about £60,000 in many cases.
Incidentally, I have no animus against my own GP, a very polite person whom I have not actually seen face to face for years, but with whom I am reasonably satisfied, and who monitors me via routine blood tests etc, and sends the odd letter.
