Tiverton and Honiton by-election

A stunning reversal for the misnamed Conservative Party. The result: LibDems 53.1%; Conservatives 38.6%, Labour 3.7%, Green 2.5%, Reform UK 1.1%, UKIP 0.6%, Heritage 0.4%, For Britain 0.3%.

The victor, one Richard Foord, is an ex-officer so obscure that, so far, all that Wikipedia can say about him is that he is “a retired Army major who works in a university“.

[Update, same day: Wikipedia has now augmented its profile— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Foord].

Unpacking the result, this was always, and obviously, going to be between the Conservatives, who had held the seat since it was created in 1997, and the LibDems, with most msm “experts” forecasting, until Election Day itself, a modest Conservative Party win. Even prior to 1997, the area broadly covered by the constituency had been Con since 1923.

The LibDems put out a huge effort on the ground, I have read.

The Conservative vote-share almost halved, from 60.2% in 2019 to 38.6% at the by-election. Still it shows what a deeply pro-Con constituency Tiverton and Honiton still is, that nearly 40% of those who voted were still willing to vote Con despite Boris-idiot and his Cabinet of Clowns, and despite the former MP having stepped down after having been caught viewing porn in the Chamber of the House of Commons during a Commons debate.

Those who voted“…ay, there’s the rub. Little more than half of eligible voters turned out to vote (or sent in postal votes). The turnout in 2019 was about 80%. Conclusion: a very large number of former Conservative voters abstained, unwilling to vote LibDem but also unwilling to vote Con. 2019— nearly 36,000 Con votes; 2022— approx. 16,000 Con votes. Boris-idiot must be the main reason for the turning-away by former Con voters, though the peccadillo of the smug farmer who was until recently the MP was another factor, almost certainly.

The Conservative candidate (a woman, after the former male MP’s peccadillo; the thinking is so obvious, you can almost see the Con wheels turning) was a poor candidate; indeed, “thick as two short planks”, like so many State schoolteachers today, but that had little to do with the result.

The previous LibDem high point was in 2001 (35.8%).

What we have here is widespread dissatisfaction and indeed disgust at the present Boris-idiot misgovernment, which resulted at the by-election in much voter-abstention, probably much switching from Con to LibDem, and some tactical voting by those who might formerly have voted Labour.

For me, the most interesting aspect has been the collapse of the Labour vote.

The aforementioned tactical voting no doubt had much to do with the fall in Labour support from 19.5% to 3.7%.

The fall in numerical terms was even more stark— 11,654 Labour votes in 2019 compared to a mere 1,562 at the by-election, out of a total eligible electorate of about 76,000. The same candidate, too.

Interestingly, Labour’s highest vote-share in the constituency was not in the peak Blair years of 1997 or 2001 but in 2017, when Corbyn was Labour Party leader. 27.1%.

The lowest Labour share before this by-election came in 2010 (8.9%).

This is not, by any stretch, a good result for Jew-lobby or Israel-lobby puppet Keir Starmer. Even in 2019, the same Labour candidate managed 19.5%, over five times better than at this by-election. Some of the fall was no doubt by reason of (arguably) intelligent tactical voting; not all, though.

The four pseudo-national parties standing only managed 2.3%, taking all four together (Reform UK being top, at 1.1%).

Conclusion? “Conservatives” despised, and fake “Labour” also despised. As to the LibDem victors, as on previous occasions they have managed to present themselves as some kind of alternative, in the absence of a real one.

Wakefield by-election

The Wakefield by-election requires less analysis. The Labour candidate won easily. Factors were the imprisonment of the former (Con) MP for sexual assault on boys, and the general disenchantment with the Boris-idiot government, in a constituency which has returned Labour MPs since 1932, with the exception of 2019.

The high point for Labour was 1966 (65.39%). Sometimes, however, the margin of victory has been narrow. In recent decades, the Labour vote has been in general but slow decline. Even this by-election resulted in only 47.9%, about the same level as in most recent general elections.

It seems clear that, while the Labour vote-share did increase from 2019 (47.9% from 39.8%), that increase is quite modest. The Conservative decrease was rather greater. Seems that abstentions of former Con voters, rather than switches to Lab, were the drivers here.

As for the plethora of other candidates, only a local Pakistani independent saved his deposit (7.6%). The Yorkshire Party managed 4.3%.

The five broadly “nationalist” or pseudo-nationalist candidates got about 5% as a bloc, the top was Reform UK, on 1.9%, the lowest being Jayda Fransen, standing as Independent, with 0.1% (23 actual votes, out of a turnout of 27,466).

Labour will no doubt hail the Wakefield by-election result as “the Red Wall coming home” or some such. I think not. The Labour result was unspectacular in all the circumstances. I note that the Labour candidate was white English (albeit gay, so ticking at least one “woke” box). It may be that many English voters voted for him partly on the basis that he is white (Wakefield is about 90% white).

The two by-election results will be an unwelcome if not unexpected blow to Boris-idiot, who is hiding in Rwanda (presumably unable to find a fridge this time).

All the same, Labour’s performance has been pretty underwhelming; dull in Wakefield, and (despite the tactical voting aspect) disastrous in Tiverton/Honiton.

I should say that, if the Conservative Party can ditch Boris-idiot, and then somehow manage to find a leader at least not completely hopeless, they might well be able to fend off a Labour victory in 2023 or 2024.

What a bad joke news such as that displayed above makes of a century of “Irish nationalism”. Sinn Fein members on their knees for “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, masked, muzzled, and pathetic; and Ireland ruled by a gay half-Indian. De Valera must be spinning in his boggy grave.

As already said herein, the idiot posing as Prime Minister was unable to find a fridge in which to hide, so went to Rwanda.

Jesus H. Christ! Are they day-trippers, or did they just land in rubber boats?

…and that includes serving the Jew-Zionist lobby, eg in the UK.

…and all that can be done is to talk about it online…

Ukraine

https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2022/jun/24/russia-ukraine-war-zelenskiy-hails-eu-decision-russian-forces-encircle-troops-in-lysychansk-kyiv-officials-say-live-news

Russian has taken Severodonetsk. Ukrainian troops still alive and not captured have withdrawn.

We hear less now from msm (and UK military) mediocrities about how Ukraine is winning the war etc. Reality is breaking through, gradually.

Hard to believe the number of “bring it on” idiots in the UK, whose “analysis” seems to consist of “if we get hit, so does Russia“, as if that makes the incineration of their own homes, families and way of life (and themselves) somehow OK, because people in Russia will die too. Of course, they are brainwashed by warmongering propaganda, as were their ancestors in 1939 and 1914 (etc). That, however, was before the nuclear missile had been invented.

Ukraine is not our fight. Ukraine has only been a “state”, a more or less “failed state”, for 30 years. It is shambolic, corrupt, Jew-ridden to the core, and is no “free” “democracy”. The existing “government” of the Jew Zelensky has no legitimacy, and has arrested, and even shot, its most significant opponents. Eleven or more political opposition parties have been closed down by force. Its citizens are among the poorest in Europe, too.

Britain has no historical or other ties to Ukraine, either.

This is a full-on NWO/ZOG strategic and propaganda operation.

When I was in the USA in the early 1990s, I was struck by the fanatical feminism that pervaded the society, and which fanatically supported abortion. Both connected trends were largely if not entirely triggered, from the late 1950s, by Jewish women writers and “activists”. “They” always seem to be at the forefront of the collapse of white Western societies. They try to do the same in Russia but have encountered pushback.

Again, “they” are at the forefront of support for and organization of the migration invasion.

Ha ha! Send those idiots at Glastonbury to the Eastern Front! “Diesen Befehl kommt direkt vom Fuhrer!“…

Well, one can dream…

Saturday quiz

Well, this week I again beat political journalist John Rentoul: 7/10 as against his 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 9, and 10, and my correct answers to questions 3 and 5 were more or less educated guesses.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10928505/Male-blood-donor-turned-away-clinic-refused-answer-pregnant.html

Over nearly 50 years, Leslie Sinclair has given a formidable 125 pints of blood.

But on his last trip he was turned away after refusing to answer a question on whether or not he was pregnant.

Mr Sinclair, 66, was told to fill in a form which asked whether he was expecting a child or had been pregnant in the past six months.

When he complained that as a man in his 60s this question did not apply and he should not have to answer it, Mr Sinclair said staff at the clinic told him they could not accept his blood.

Socio-political madness is now embedded in our sick society, from incidents like the above, through all the other LGBTQXYZ and “trans” nonsense, the “Black Lives Matter”, “Extinction Rebellion” and “Insulate Britain” craziness, to the 2020-2022 “panicdemic”/”scamdemic” of “Covid”, and everything associated with the conspiracy around that.

The latest, and potentially most dangerous madness is, of course, the pro-“Ukraine” (really, pro- the Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev) propaganda. Anti-Russia propaganda (and UK government actions).

“Most dangerous” because the end of it all might actually be a nuclear exchange between Russia and NATO, including (inevitably) a massive attack on the UK, which would destroy almost everything, irradiate almost everything, and quite possibly wipe the UK and its people off the map forever.

So the Chief Medical Officer of Wales is now interfering in climatalogical matters? Farcical. Is Wales suddenly going to become superheated? I doubt it.

The (supposed) “experts” are very often wrong, in any area.

It is terrible that a fine and historic British institution such as the RNLI has been infiltrated by the enemies of the people. Only total mugs donate to it now.

Read that report and then look at the sentence— 3 years, very lenient for what the defendant actually did— meaning that the defendant will be out in 18 months, and possibly earlier.

Why are such untermenschen even in this country, even in Europe? Unnecessary, unwanted, and —at best— useless.

I have seen Ukraine develop as a “fake state” and indeed “failed state” over the past 30 years. There were even strong possibilities, ~23 years ago, that I might spend time there (maybe two years or longer, in Kiev and/or Odessa and/or elsewhere).

Ukraine, a “state” for only 30 years, has been a festering mess of corruption and shambolic maladministration. Also, very much exploited by Jewish interests.

As it now is, Ukraine has control over only —about— three-quarters of its territory, and over about half of its 1990’s population. It has little manufacturing industry still operating, its agricultural produce cannot be exported, and it is almost entirely dependent on American and other foreign aid.

Alison Chabloz

I have received no news about Alison Chabloz, but note that the custodial part of her unjust sentence (for having lampooned supposedly-typical Jewish behaviour in cartoons, animations, and humorous song) comes to an end on 29 June 2022, exactly 2 weeks from today.

What happened to Ireland? The IRA and Sinn Fein may have been a movement I mostly opposed in the 1970s and 1980s, but it seems that the Irish are now completely supine, ground down under the heel of, almost unbelievably, a gay half-Indian puppet of the New World Order and Zionist Occupation Government [NWO/ZOG].

Can nothing be done?…

Comment perhaps superfluous…

Morning music

That music always stuck in mind because it was the soundtrack to a training film I saw when I was 21 and on a (private) parachute course in Wiltshire. On that film, as the music played, a stream of parachutists exited the plane still holding on to each other, streaming down the fuselage of the aircraft, then one by one let go, only deploying their parachutes much later. Memorable.

Comment unnecessary, I think.

Alison Chabloz

Regular readers of the blog, as well as others, will be aware that persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz was imprisoned yet again on Thursday 14 April 2022, for —in effect— the heinous crime of poking fun in song at some aspects of Jewish behaviour.

Alison was sentenced (by District Judge Nina Tempia, sitting at Westminster Magistrates’ Court) to 22 weeks’ imprisonment. The maximum would have been 6 months, i.e. about 26 weeks. A harsh sentence by any standard, though Alison should be released from actual custody at the halfway stage— 11 weeks, meaning 30 June 2022.

Anyone wishing to send postcards, letters, or books to Alison [new books only, softback only, preferably from online booksellers, but note that the prison will not accept Amazon deliveries] can send them to:

Alison Chabloz A6478EK,

HMP Bronzefield,

Woodthorpe Rd,

Ashford TW15 3JZ.

I understand that Alison Chabloz is applying, via her lawyers, for bail pending appeal to the Crown Court. As yet, however, she still sits in Bronzefield Prison, and indeed as of today has already served over 2 weeks out of the 11 she needs to serve before she can be released (unless she gets bail pending appeal).

The Jew-Zionist “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” crowed last year on Twitter etc that they had finally had Alison Chabloz imprisoned, after having striven to that end for 5 years. Much effort for little reward. Same this year. Alison has already served, in effect, a fifth of her sentence, yet the sentencing hearing was only the other day.

The mask is off. The NWO has come out pretty much openly over this Ukraine thing, a sign of the importance the NWO is attaching to the “Ukraine” project (the attack on Russia, or get control back over Russia, project).

Neil Parish; also, a few thoughts about Labour Party voters

Very true, though equally true of most Labour drones.

Actually, what interests me about Parish is something tangential, and nothing to do with his recent (alleged) behaviour (in respect of which, any honourable MP in more honourable times, meaning roughly “before 1990”, would have RESIGNED, at once.

My interest in Parish [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Parish] is small (in fact I had never heard of the bastard until today) but I happened to notice that, before he started his “career” of expenses-blodging and freeloading (as an MEP for South West England in the European Parliament for a decade before election as MP for Tiverton and Honiton in 2010), he had taken on the suicide mission of standing as Conservative Party candidate for Torfaen, in South Wales.

In 1997, when Parish unsuccessfully contested Torfaen, it was considered a solid Labour seat. In the General Election of that year, the Labour candidate received nearly 70% of all votes cast, while Parish managed only just over 12% in second place, marginally above the LibDems (there also three other candidates, all of whom lost their deposits).

Looking at the subsequent results in Torfaen is instructive in considering the decline of the Labour vote almost everywhere. In 1997, Lab got (about) 70% at Torfaen, Con 12%; in 2001, Lab 62%, Con 16%; in 2005, Lab 57%, Con 16%; in 2010, Lab 49%, Con 20%; in 2015, Lab 45%, Con 23%; in 2017, Lab (under Corbyn) rebounded to nearly 58%, but the Con vote also rose significantly, to 31% (best-ever).

In 2019, Lab only got 42% at Torfaen, but Con still came in second, though on 32% [all figures rounded-up or down].

The trend is clear: while Labour is still getting enough legacy votes —from the older generation who remembered the pre-1939 world and the pre-1979, pre-Thatcher world too— to win seats such as Torfaen, automatic loyalty to Labour, even in a place like that, is a thing of the past.

UK too. Today, I was driving around more than usual, in one of the most affluent parts of Southern England, and the roads were almost untraversable. No wonder people in the region all seem to drive Range-Rovers, Porsche Cayennes, other SUVs. Potholes, ridges in the road, sunken drain covers. Like something out of somewhere like…Ukraine…, in fact. The Boris-idiot mis-government gives hundreds of millions to the Kiev regime (which has nothing to do with us), yet our own roads, hospitals etc are pitiful now.
