Kirklees Council is within the Batley and Spen constituency area: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirklees_Council. Labour has a plurality though not a majority of councillors (32 out of 69). The Mayor? One “Mumtaz Hussein”. Leader of the Council? “Shabir Pandor”. The Deputy Leader is Peter McBride.

“Shortly after the 2016 local elections, Labour councillors initially decided to replace incumbent council leader David Sheard with Shabir Pandor…Pandor eventually resigned as Labour group leader. Sheard was re-elected as leader of the council and appointed Pandor as his deputy.[14] Pandor was subsequently elected leader of the council in 2018.” [Wikipedia]

You can see that Labour monopolizes the positions of importance at that council and that, over recent years, the non-whites have taken over from the former sort of Labour councillors, who were English, or at least ethnically British.

Incidentally, the salaried CEO of the Council is one Jacqui Gedman, who received, in 2019, over £156,000, and probably gets a great deal more in 2021: https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/information-and-data/pdf/open-data/senior-salaries-and-organisational-structure-2019.xlsx. Despite that, the Council has been heavily criticized for its failures in recent years.

See this, too:

In June 2016 the Huddersfield Daily Examiner exposed several councillors who had failed to pay their Council Tax. Five serving councillors, four Labour and one Conservative, had been issued with court claims after previously receiving reminder letters.[15]

Two councillors who had denied the allegations, Deputy Leader Jean Calvert and Amanda Pinnock, were suspended by the Labour Party. It was the second time in as many years that Calvert had failed to pay her Council Tax when it was due, and Pinnock had accused the Examiner of racism.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirklees_Council#’Ratesgate’_scandal

Looks like Labour (especially) needs a big and damaging kick at the by-election. Looks as though the voting will be split mainly on racial/ethnic lines.

It’s a mad mad mad mad…UK

Be a psychopath and burn down buildings (etc) and you are “spared jail”, but sing a few songs about Jewish behaviour (Alison Chabloz), or make a short political speech in Whitehall (Jez Turner) and you are sentenced to imprisonment (despite, inter alia, being of good character, i.e. no previous convictions). Justice? Or an unjust and biased farce?

Though superficially seeming impossible, is it impossible?

I see Blair as just as much a puppet of NWO/ZOG as, say, Boris-idiot, but one with more ability.

Jeremy Corbyn, anti-Zionist though not really “anti-Semitic” (regrettably), was removed by what amounted to a Jewish and Israeli covert operation, and was replaced by Keir Starmer, who has a Jewish wife (a lawyer), and children who are being brought up as if fully-Jewish. However, it is clear that, while the pro-Israel lobby on Twitter and in the msm likes Starmer, the voting public is unconvinced. Twice as many people prefer (even?) “Boris” to Starmer as future Prime Minister. Bearing in mind how incredibly poor “Boris” has proven to be, that is really something.

If Starmer were to be jettisoned, and with no obvious way forward for Labour, I can imagine that Blair might just be reinstalled, though most Labour members and (voting) supporters seem to be hostile. In one sense, almost impossible; in another, almost inevitable (?).

As to the voters generally, given a choice of “Boris” or Blair, more of them might say “Blair” than would say either “Boris” or “Starmer”… Never say never, I suppose.

“Rahul Kohli”…an “Englishman”?! Ha ha! I looked him up on Wikipedia; TV and film actor, apparently.

People now, many of them, cannot see that an historical figure can do “good things” while also doing things now (100-200 years later) thought of as “not good”….There is no nuance in 2021. It’s all black and white, good v. evil…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egerton_Ryerson], and adjudged as such by, usually, those ill-equipped to make such determinations.

The (relative) few can see what is happening, but the majority either cannot see or can see but still go along with the conspiratorial agenda because they think that nails that stick out get hammered down.

It is ever thus: only the few are the leaders, or in the vanguard. Only the few are the dissidents. There are innumerable historical examples, perhaps the most obvious being the dissidents of various kinds in the Soviet Union. Others would include the early scientists who stood up against, inter alia, heresy laws from the late mediaeval period still extant in the Renaissance. Or again, those in the present age who stand up against quasi-mediaeval “holocaust” “denial” laws and repressions.

At first, both as MP at Westminster and later as PM, especially when meeting the American President at Camp David, Blair was quite naive-looking, or as Mephistopheles puts it in Faust, “an intelligent youth, easy to instruct”. Later, he took on a “devilish” look, and now, at times, looks quite mad as he evidently sees himself as a prime mover and shaker of the Western NWO/ZOG conspiracy/consensus.

Nick Thomas-Symonds

Listened to fairly pathetic BBC Radio 4 PM. Talk about the migration invasion, and in particular the cross-Channel traffic of illegals in small boats. Guest interviewee was one “Nick Thomas”, whom I now see was Nick Thomas-Symonds [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Thomas-Symonds], the Shadow Home Secretary.

So irrelevant has the Labour Party now become that I (someone who takes a fairly close interest in political and Parliamentary affairs) was actually unaware that Nick Thomas was in that post. In fact, I had never heard of him.

Turns out that, on paper, this is a well-educated person, and a barrister who belongs to Lincoln’s Inn, as did I until the Jew-Zionist lobby procured my disbarment in 2016 (thus triggering my expulsion from my Inn).

Sadly, but not at all surprisingly, in answering questions about the migration invasion, Nick Thomas showed himself to be yet another Welsh windbag, taking a great deal of time to say absolutely nothing. Incapable of criticizing mass immigration as such. No real “solution” except to demand that more money be spent in the migrants’ home countries, thus magically stopping the waves of migration. Yeah, right…

That interview was telling, for me. Labour has absolutely nothing to say. Labour has nothing to offer the British people. Even less than has the chaotic government of “Boris”. Labour is washed-up.

It will be interesting to see how far Labour will fall in the two presently-upcoming by-elections.

Diary Blog, 28 January 2021, including thoughts about “Covid passports” and “the mark of the Beast”

Well, here we are, almost a year since the start of the “panicdemic”, and travel internationally has been made almost impossible. Tony Blair (“it’s that man again”…) is now proposing that only those carrying a “vaccine passport” be allowed to travel.

https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-tony-blair-says-uk-should-lead-global-push-for-immunity-passports-12201104

A report by his non-profit organisation the Tony Blair Institute said the “only way to navigate allowing people to travel internationally again” is creating a global travel pass showing each individual’s COVID-19 status.

The idea has been mooted before but was rejected by Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove just last month, when he told Sky News: “I certainly am not planning to introduce any vaccine passports, and I don’t know anyone else in government who is.

Since then, the Sunday Telegraph reported the government is funding at least eight separate firms to develop such a product, which is already in use in countries in the Middle East and Asia.” [Sky News]

What?! Surely cocaine-snorting, expenses-cheating, often-drunk, little puppet of the Jewish lobby, Michael Gove, would not lie (again)?…

Turning his attention to what happens next, Mr Blair’s institute said the UK should “place the creation of a global COVID-19 travel pass as a key item on the G7 agenda”, when leaders from the US, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada congregate in Cornwall later this summer.” [Sky News]

So soon there may be one international passport, at first a document, but perhaps later something akin to a cat or dog “chip” under the skin, without which you will be unable to travel. Maybe eventually you will be unable to travel even internally, between regions, unless you have it.

People will say, “well, it’s for public health, that’s all“. Is that really all, though? Once such a system is in place, it will be easily expanded. How? By saying “we have a terrorism problem“, or “we have a worldwide child abuse problem“, or (fill in whatever), and so have to restrict travel by those the authorities say might be involved in such activities.

After that? Well, we have seen that the definition of those surveilled (and interfered with) by the UK state has expanded from “terrorists” to “extremists” and on to anyone who is “radical”, and even anyone who dissents from what the System is doing in terms of mass immigration, animal welfare etc: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/.

We see the same “mission creep” in the field of restrictions on freedom of expression:

In fact, there is a constant push now, eg in the UK, to go beyond restricting free speech by those who (under already very strict laws) are said to have written illegal things, to those who write things which are not (even under the present quite repressive laws) illegal, but merely “extreme” politically or socially.

Reverting to the “international Covid passport” idea, it could (would) eventually be expanded well beyond travel itself to, for example, whether people can attend universities, use NHS facilities, or even sell things to the public:

“καὶ ἵνα μή τις δύνηται ἀγοράσαι ἢ πωλῆσαι εἰ μὴ ὁ ἔχων τὸ χάραγμα, τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θηρίου ἢ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ. 18Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν· ὁ ἔχων τὸν νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου· ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστί· καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ χξϛʹ.[8]” [Wikipedia]

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.” [Wikipedia, citing the Revelation of St. John] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_the_beast

Ironically, my full name (Ian Robert Millard) adds up to 666 (according to one system of numerology)! Yet here I am, trying to fight against that force or tendency. Paradoxical?

These things do not always go the way the Western cabals want, as when Bush snr. proclaimed the New World Order in early 1990, only to see it derailed several years later by both the rebirth of Russia as a truly independent state under Putin, and also by the Islamist upsurge which resulted in, inter alia, the 2001 New York attack. However, these attempts by the powers of Evil are cyclical, and return in renewed and usually more powerful forms later in history.

Migration-invasion. This is not a “debate”; it is an existential struggle, a war.

In fact, Peter Hitchens is entirely wrong here. The System does not “allow us to remove governments which fail”, but merely (if at all) allows the people to vote once every few years for an almost-identical set of System drones and puppets. Cuckoo-clock binary. Con-Lab-Con-Lab-Con-Lab…

The pseudo-democratic MPs and ministers (in Hitler’s words, “dirty democratic politicians“) have been allowed to get away, in the past decades, with importing millions of blacks and browns etc, and so just ruining this country; allowed to get away with cheating and stealing millions individually; allowed to get away with reduction of pay and State benefits to levels below basic decency; allowed to get away with all the police-state “panicdemic” nonsense now imposed.

MPs have not been punished.

The past year of nonsense has really empowered the petty zealots and busybodies.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cliff_Richard#1940%E2%80%931958:_Childhood_and_adolescence

One fact which is not known to many is that DNA from Egyptian relics, notably Tutankhamun’s remains, shows that modern Europeans have more in common, ethnically, with ancient Egyptians than the latter have in common with modern Egyptians, who basically just crawl over the fallen and ruined stones of ancient greatness. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tutankhamun

Chap“? The word “Jew” seems to be missing…

The white population of South Africa (mostly the English/British South Africans rather than the Afrikaaners, but both) gave in to the forces of the New World Order [NWO] by installing the semi-reformed terrorist Mandela as head of state. Mandela was an ineffective President (also, as thick as two short planks: “Having devoted his time to politics, Mandela failed his final year at Witwatersrand [University] three times; he was ultimately denied his [law] degree in December 1949” [Wikipedia]).

If only South Africa had held out for another year or two! Once the Soviet Union collapsed, the funding tap for sub-Saharan black power movements was cut off. White South Africa might have won out.

The Jews in South Africa, typically, wanted it all ways: they enjoyed a pleasant affluent lifestyle under “apartheid” (though there never was real or complete separation); often supported anti-White causes; owned newspapers that were anti-White; infested TV as soon as it arrived in South Africa; owned much of the commerce and industry; switched to support the corrupt ANC as soon as the Whites stupidly ceded power to it; either left to go to London, USA, or Israel when things got sticky, or hired more security guards and turned their estates into fortresses, while parkig their money overseas.

Diary Blog, 19 December 2020, including thoughts about social-national politics

Direction of travel of the social-national movement

The first thing to recognize is that there is no “social-national movement” in the UK. The modest successes of, mainly, the BNP, 1997-2010, could be described as interesting rather than enthralling; the BNP’s complete collapse in 2010, though ongoing to 2015, was neither enthralling nor even interesting.

I do not include the “controlled opposition” of Farage, his UKIP and Brexit Party vehicles etc (which are scarcely “national”, let alone “social national”); neither do I include the “alt-Right” wastes of space: “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin), “Count Dankula” and others. Not worth bothering about. Most of them are vocally pro-Jew and pro-Israel too (either to buy credit from them and so avoid damage to their apparently lucrative online activities, or out of actual adherence).

Apart from the above, what we have now amounts to little more than various individuals posting tweets, youtube vlogs etc online.

Thus the “antifascist” (mostly Jew or Jew-controlled) element can easily “take down” the aforesaid wastes of space, and (connected) types such as Katie Hopkins, and even Tommy Robinson (the only one of them with anything like a real offline following), simply by “taking down” their Internet service. These people (except, arguably, Tommy Robinson) are dependent entirely on their websites, blogs, vlogs and including online sales, for income.

Offline? Patriotic Alternative are slightly interesting, and I think that they are at least somewhat on the right track. The other little “movements” and “parties” are a waste of time and space. I have blogged about them previously here and there. If you use the search bar on this blog, you will find my comments about them made from time to time.

Anything or anyone else? Well, ex-BNP leader Nick Griffin is or seems to be partly on the right sort of track too, though I was forced to write critically recently about his support for Jayda Fransen and her “British Freedom Party”. His support for that frankly puzzles me.

There is space and indeed a necessity for a credible movement, which would include a political party, but one does not as yet exist. That movement would also include a gradual relocation by many to a few parts of the UK where forces can be concentrated. My views on this have frequently been blogged, and can be found below.

I have listened to the views of those who say that concentrating forces in such a way is a strategy of “running away”, and that we should “stand and fight”. Well, I would answer that by saying that

  1. There is a difference between strategic withdrawal and “running away”;
  2. One cannot “stand and fight” with no weapons and, even more importantly, no army!;
  3. The English cities are becoming majority non-white; yes only gradually, but surely all the same; by 2040, maybe even 2030, the UK cities and large towns will be basically non-white, and already show clear signs of that;
  4. Such a concentration of forces does not preclude activity in the main urban areas.

The next step must be to establish a tightly-controlled political movement, even if small. However, it must be credible and solid right from the start.

My previous blog posts on the overall subject, as applied to socio-politics in the UK of the present day:  https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/new-communities-in-england-and-wales-for-social-nationalists/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/how-would-the-safe-zone-become-a-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/why-should-people-relocate-to-the-safe-zone-of-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/getting-real-about-repatriation-creation-of-the-british-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/03/04/the-way-forward-for-social-nationalism-in-the-uk/amp/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/09/17/europe-will-soon-be-in-chaos-we-can-create-a-new-civilization-from-that/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/05/the-pressing-need-for-safe-zones-in-the-uk-and-across-europe/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/post-collapse-survival-preservation-of-civilization-and-culture/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/from-secure-base-to-national-power/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/24/concentration-of-resident-supporters-in-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/10/fortress-centres-of-culture-and-science/.

Can that be true?! Could be a game-changer if it is. Imagine if Blair actually took over Labour again…he is completely controlled NWO/ZOG. Just in time for the next crucial year in the 33-year cycle— 2022.

Britain is riddled with enemies and traitors; they have to be rooted out.

A very significant graph.

Hello?! Is anyone in? Has anyone out there heard of “The Great Reset”? Has anyone heard of “The Great Replacement”? What about the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan? Or NWO? or ZOG?

Boris-idiot speaks…

Just listening to the clown presently posing as Prime Minister. Describing the latest illegitimate restrictions on the population. So some people, in some areas, are now to be actually prohibited from travelling overseas “except for work”. So that gives the wealthy business or parasite element a good get-out (as in “I have a business meeting in Marbella or Eilat, and will be using a private charter aircraft…).

In addition, Christmas and the New Year are now cancelled. “The Great Reset”…

From where does the (alleged) “new variant” of “the virus” come? China? Some secret laboratory? Was the existing virus strain designed that way, i.e. to mutate? Or is it a purely natural mutation, like strains of influenza? We do not know.

The bottom line is that the UK economy is going to tank. Still, “always look on the bright side of life”, and this could be the impetus, in 2021, for the formation of a real, and credible, social-national party.

For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero]

Damn. For the first time since I started looking at these quiz questions on Saturday, John Rentoul beat me, having apparently scored 5/10, whereas I scored only 3/10 this week (though had I thought for a moment I would have scored a few extra…); my worst-ever score…I had no idea at all about questions 2, 6, and 7.

That alone will certainly not be enough, though it is good an sich.

Still think that those of us who have been talking about an upcoming private-public UK police state are wrong?

As I predicted some time ago, Sturgeon is using “the virus” to do “pretend-Independence” things. Closing borders unilaterally is the prerogative of a state, not a mere part of a state.

So? If the “Conservative” label fails and is voted out, the “Labour” label, equally (((controlled))) gets voted in, and very little changes…

Are we supposed to believe that that clown, “Boris”, is actually “in charge”? He is merely the puppet of powerful hidden forces.

Conspiracy theory

The very latest conspiracy theory— just made up…by me. The mutating virus was planned in advance (and/or new mutations are deliberately released) with aim of reducing world population drastically. Maybe newer and newer mutations will “emerge”, each succeeding one more lethal than those before it (the first one was/is not so lethal, having —supposedly— killed 1 in 1,400 people in the UK).

Well, the above is just a speculation and may not be so…

Diary Blog, 25 September 2020, including thoughts about the SNP and about the encroaching police state in the UK generally

An important article on liberty in the West

So far, the msm is promoting Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak for his largesse with public funds and his schemes to somehow keep large parts of the poisoned economy alive. In fact, it is telling that several Conservative Party MPs have coyly implied that Sunak would be better at being PM than irrelevant poseur Boris-idiot.

“Boris” is like a faded entertainer whose jokes are now falling flat and who, having been a major draw, is reduced to treading the boards in the provinces. While Sunak was expounding his rather underwhelming ideas and new policies in the Commons, “Boris” was inspecting police recruits at some place in East Anglia.

Not so sure about the “great“, but the article in question is important at this time, and Hitchens himself is at least willing to see what is happening, as many in the msm either turn a blind eye or fall in behind the System.

SNP

The SNP is a phenomenon. A faux-“nationalist” party which has succeeded in gaining power not because of its own merits but because there was nothing much opposing it.

The SNP [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party] was founded in 1934, but only had its first MP elected in 1967. It increased representation to 7, then 11, in the febrile political conditions of 1974 (also the time when North Sea Oil https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Sea_oil came to the forefront of public attention). [it’s different now: the cost of production is higher than the price of the oil produced in 2020].

The Scottish public was sold the idea that much of Britain’s North Sea oil was really Scotland’s North Sea oil…a doubtful (though not completely implausible) proposition, looking at the geography and the Law of the Sea as it applies to Exclusive Economic Zones [EEZs]:

The Scottish seats at Westminster then numbered 71, later increased to 72 but reduced from 2005 to 59. The SNP’s 11 MPs in 1974 remained the high-water mark until the SNP’s huge breakthrough in 2015, when the SNP under Nicola Sturgeon suddenly had 56 out of those 59. In 2010, the SNP had had elected only 6 MPs.

After decline to 35 MPs in 2017, the SNP (as I predicted) surged again to 48 MPs in 2019.

In fact, the apparent landslide does not reflect the views of the public very well. FPTP voting distortion. Even in 2015, when the SNP got 56 out of 59 Westminster seats, its vote-share was no more than 50%. In 2019, that was only 45%, yet the SNP has 48 out of 59 seats.

The SNP rose up for several reasons. Firstly because “it was there”; it existed. People cannot vote for a party that does not exist.

Secondly, the Scottish Labour Party, so long dominant, collapsed after years of complacency and corruption. The name that comes to mind is that of Jim Murphy, a complete System puppet. He got his first “real job”(sort-of…working for Scottish Labour!) at the age of 30! He had been a student for 12-13 years without even managing to get a degree!

Jim Murphy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career] hit all the buttons: a doormat for the Jewish lobby [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career]; an expenses cheat and freeloader [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Expenses], who claimed over £1M from 2001-2010; a rubberstamp for Blair and Brown. Murphy later (from 2016) became a salaried “gopher” for Tony Blair and still seems to be one.

The Murphy fiasco was symptomatic of a party totally out of touch. It had thrown away “socialism” in stages after 1990; by the time Murphy became leader in 2014, Scottish Labour stood for almost nothing but the Union with England, as well as a continuation of a failed society and economy.

Murphy was followed by Kezia Dugdale [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kezia_Dugdale], another one who, like Murphy, had never had an outside job. Generally useless.

Scottish Labour has had three more leaders since 2015, none of which has troubled national attention.

Scottish Labour (until 1994 simply part of the —UK— Labour Party) had been first-placed in Scotland in all general elections from 1922. The party was only placed second in 2015, third in 2017 and fourth in 2019. A stunning collapse. The popular vote share fell from 42% in 2010 to 18.6% in 2019. 41 MPs out of 59 in 2010, 1 MP in 2015, briefly 7 MPs in 2017, only to fall back to 1 MP in 2019.

It might be objected that Scottish Labour can still come back. I cannot see how. Recent surveys indicate that, as with Conservative Party support in England, Scottish Labour Party voters are mostly elderly people. A diminishing asset.

In the Scottish Parliament too, Scottish Labour has steadily declined, from 56 seats out of 129 in 1999 to 24 in 2016. The SNP currently has 63 MSPs.

What about the other Scottish parties? The Scottish LibDems now have 4 Westminster MPs out of 59 (11 in 2019, and 1 in 2015); in the Scottish Parliament, another steady decline, 17 out of 129 in 1999, 5 out of 129 now (2016 election).

The Scottish Conservatives declined steadily from 1955 to 1997 (no MPs at all were elected in 1997, and the party then had only one until 2017, when 13 were elected); presently, the Conservatives hold 6 Westminster seats out of 59. The Scottish Conservatives have increased their Holyrood representation: 18 MSPs in 1999, 15 in 2011, but 31 out of 129 in 2016.

The pattern is clear overall. The SNP came up in the 2010-2015 period because the other main parties were seen as declining entities with little to offer. The SNP may now be a fake “nationalist” elected dictatorship North of the Border, and rather incompetent to boot, but there is no obvious sign of challenge as far as Westminster elections are concerned.

In England, we see that Labour has floundered, that the Conservative Party is disastrous (too) and “won” in 2019 by default, with the LibDems on their last legs, but what does not exist in England (or Wales) is any semblance of a new or insurgent and upcoming party.

In Wales, Plaid Cymru is hampered not only because it is not really “nationalist”, but because Wales would be a very very poor little land had it to pay for itself as an “independent” state. Indeed, there is every chance that the Welsh economy will submerge further in 2020 and 2021.

In England proper, there is no real social-national party at all. If one were to exist, the next few years, as the economy crashes, as Brexit is mishandled and ruined, and as mass immigration continues, could be the years of triumph.

In fact, others did speak out, but they were, like me, not msm-approved scribblers and talking heads. I do not even have a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had Twitter expel me in 2018).

Good point. In fact, look at the societies or states in the world that are effectively all black: Liberia; Sierra Leone; Haiti, Congo, Nigeria (etc). Not places where many white (or black) people would want to live. Indeed, compare the two sides of the island of Hispaniola: on the one side, the Dominican Republic, a black/mixed/mestizo and white state; then look at Haiti, an almost entirely black state…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispaniola#Ethnic_composition; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispaniola; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominican_Republic; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti

Generally speaking, the higher the proportion of European or European-ancestry people that exists in any given country, the better, overall, that country is.

Oh, what a surprise. Not. I have been raging against Boris-idiot for about 10 or more years, on Twitter since 2011 and in this blog since late 2016. My influence as yet is small, and it has felt at times like a hopeless struggle against the msm talking heads and scribblers, who have been pushing this completely unfitted vanity machine for about two decades. In fact, the unmerited “triumph” of “Boris” shows how powerful msm propaganda is when it comes to “the moronic masses”…(cf. facemasks and “Coronavirus” fear propaganda in general).

Talking of “the moronic masses”…here we have a British population which, faced with an epidemic that, in the UK, has killed about 1 in 2,000 of the population (and worldwide, about 1 in 8,000), has allowed itself to be scared to death. The majority, or at least about half, of the population seem to want to be locked in their homes, forced to wear facemask muzzles, prevented from going out or going anywhere much, so long as the State funnels some more money their way. As Shakespeare might say, “ay, there’s the rub“, for that money is, ultimately, the resource available by reason of a functioning economy.

No economy = no money. Not immediately. The Government can borrow, and is borrowing. At present, at advantageous rates. Borrowing to invest in people and projects is often good as a policy; to borrow merely to sustain a failing range of industries and companies, or to pay people’s bills, is not a good policy, and will be disastrous in the end.

Ha ha! Fanatical UK-based Jews think that they can hound their critics worldwide! In most countries, the repressive laws of the UK are not replicated, and in some (eg USA) there are safeguards for free speech.

The “Campaign Against Antisemitism” has been making malicious allegations to Twitter, Facebook, professional bodies and police for years: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Most of their contrived attempts to use the UK police as puppets have failed.

Diary Blog, 30 August 2020, including thoughts about the next great socio-political shift in the world

My blog

Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.

The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?

Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.

Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.

Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.

A few “thoughts out of season”

I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!

Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).

2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).

When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.

After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.

In China, the transition that started in the 1980s intensified, becoming “a new brand of thinking combining socialist ideology with free enterprise, dubbed “socialism with Chinese characteristics” [Wikipedia].

After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.

Socialism does not work well in the economic sense, but finance-capitalism does not work well socially. Hence the —as yet largely not understood— need for the Threefold Social Order: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding.

In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.

In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.

While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.

Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.

In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.

People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.

As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”

For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Time moves on

I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…

Image

It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].

I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.

Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.

The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.

The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.

Police state Germany

In Merkel’s police state, hundreds if not thousands have been arrested in the past 24 hours. Also, people have tried to storm the Bundestag: https://www.euronews.com/2020/08/29/thousands-of-anti-corona-protesters-flood-berlin; https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-53959552

In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.

You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.

…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!

Dido Harding

Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.

Tweets seen

The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.

Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!

Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!

Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…

Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.

“Eat out to help out”

Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:

A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.

Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.

Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.

More tweets

[the building is the Royal Ontario Museum, in Toronto, Canada]

A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.

As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.

Presumably a representation of some organ of the human body (?), or maybe some sea-creature, plonked down in the midst of what seems to be a town in Southern Germany:

One wall, one squad…

Diary Blog, 19 December 2019

First, some music:

The General Election continues to supply interesting facts.

The “experts” are still working on General Election 2019 statistics. One that I saw today was that, because Brexit Party was standing in Labour-held seats, the Conservative Party was deprived of another 20 seats.

I have already blogged about how Labour got (in rough figures) about 37% of the vote in Hartlepool (its lowest-ever share), while Brexit Party got about 25% and the Cons 28%. Had Brexit Party not stood, the Cons would have won Hartlepool! The same is true the other way round too, of course. In fact, I wonder whether Brexit Party might not have won Hartlepool anyway had Farage not stood down his candidates in Conservative-held seats. His action in doing that destroyed Brexit Party’s credibility and totally exposed it as a fake and as basically a shield for the Con Party.

The other piece of election-related news I saw was that, if the proposed boundary changes go ahead, as well as the reduction of MP numbers to 600, the Conservative Party would have a majority of 104 on the GE 2019 voting figures. The Cons would have fewer seats, 352, than the 365 they now have, but Labour would have only 179 compared to the present 208. SNP would have almost the same number as at present (47), maybe minus one or two. The LibDems would have 7 MPs instead of 11.

I do not know how the absence of Brexit Party (which must surely just fold soon) would affect those figures. If it meant that the Cons would get 20 or even 10 seats more, then that would give the Cons an unassailable advantage, about 360 or 370 seats out of 600. With Labour on maybe 169 or even 159 out of 600, the changes would reduce Labour to near irrelevance and the LibDems to near-zero.

It occurred to me that, in the (admittedly very unlikely) contingency that Scotland became “independent” (of the UK, though not from the EU, IMF, NATO etc…that’s another story), its (presently) 59 (or reduced figure) MPs would be removed, leaving the Westminster Parliament with about 540. That would, notionally, entrench Conservative rule in England and Wales even more. Without the SNP, Labour would be a small niche party with no possibility even of minority government.

but…

We have seen (noted in previous blogs) that relatively few young people voted Conservative at GE 2019:

  • 18-24s only 23% (Labour 56%)
  • 25-29s 23% (Labour 54%)
  • 30-39s 30% (Labour 46%).
  • Only the over-40s gave Conservative a plurality of votes (41%, with Labour on 35%)
  • and only the over-60s and over-70s gave the Cons a majority (57% and 67% as against Labour’s 22% and 14%).
  • LibDem support was consistent at all ages at 11%-12% (with a slight increase among 30-y-o people: 14%).

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/17/how-britain-voted-2019-general-election

If you were to take out the over-70s and introduce a notional new 18-24 wave, that would change the overall picture entirely. The Conservative majority might well disappear, perhaps to be replaced by a Labour majority.

If only life were that simple!

The bias of Radio 4 Today Programme

I rarely listen to the Today Programme for more than a few minutes these days. It was never much to my taste, but now it is basically a Jewish-lobby-oriented multikulti-favouring, finance-capitalist-favouring propaganda outlet.

When Justin Webb (one of the presenters) finished his time in the USA and joined the Today Programme, he was asked about the difference between the UK and USA. His answer? (and remember this was after eight years in the US)…He told the old old apocryphal story about how, in each country, a poor man sees a rich man driving a Rolls-Royce or Cadillac. In the UK, the poor man says “I have nothing; he has too much” but in the USA, the poor man says “I have nothing, but one day I too shall have such a car“…

Is that the sort of  “insight” we get when drones such as Justin Webb get paid £200,000-£300,000 a year out of the BBC’s “licence fees” (a tax imposed on the viewing public, on pain of imprisonment if unpaid)? Sadly, yes, that is exactly the sort of “insight” that those on the Today Programme provide…

Another aspect of the Today Programme is the religio-philosophical platitude-slot, sub nom “Thought For The Day“. About one day out of five, a Jew (usually some “rabbi”) does it. It seems to be about 1 out of 5 (20%), it may be (but no, I think not) as infrequently as 1 out of 10 (10%). Yet Jews in the UK number 250,000-300,000, so perhaps about 1 out of 280 (perhaps fewer), which is a fraction of one percent; in rough figures about 0.25%. Look at the disproportion. 1 out of about 280 of the whole population, but 1 out of 5 or so on Thought For The Day!

Here’s a “Thought For The Day”

There must be a curb (i.e. a tax) on the huge concentrations of economic power (capital wealth) in the hands of so very few. That applies to the USA, the UK, Russia and elsewhere.

Stray read

Saw this. Worth a look.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/dec/19/i-didnt-buy-any-food-for-a-year-and-im-healthier-than-ive-ever-been

Probably a great deal easier in the Floridian climate than it would be in Northern Europe, though.

A few more thoughts about Labour

I read this:

and this:

As I have been saying for several years in blogs and (before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter) in tweets, Labour declined parallel to the decline of the society and conditions and people that created and sustained it.

Lisa Nandy

Just read her recent tweets. The odd spelling mistake. As to content, not an airhead, neither in the obvious Jess Phillips way, nor in the less obvious Caroline Flint way.

I of course disagree with quite a lot of what Lisa Nandy says, eg re. “refugees” and other migrant-invaders, but she seems politically-effective. Obviously a System politician but of a higher calibre than the average MP (including most of Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet).

Stray thought

Mao said that the guerrilla was like a fish, swimming in the water (the people). Looking at tweets from the most fervent Corbyn supporters, there is plenty of water but (so far) no fish.

Labour’s problem

Labour’s problem is that the more “socialist” leaders of recent decades (Corbyn, Miliband, Kinnock) failed to “win” elections under the existing electoral system and so some Labour people say “return to good old Tony” because Blair won three successive elections. However, what really happened was that Blair-Labour won in 1997 against a tired fag-end of a Conservative government, after 18 years of Con government, but then struggled to win in 2001 and 2005.

The figures:

  • 1997: 43.2%, 419 seats; Blair
  • 2001: 40.7%, 413 seats; Blair
  • 2005: 35.3%, 356 seats; Blair
  • 2010: 29.1%, 258 seats; Brown
  • 2015: 30.5%, 232 seats; Miliband
  • 2017: 40.0%, 262 seats; Corbyn
  • 2019: 32.2%, 202 seats; Corbyn

The anomalies caused by Britain’s crazy FPTP voting system and the carefully-“managed” boundaries account for some inconsistencies; also, the total number of MPs in Parliament has varied from 646 to 659 even in the past 25 years.

You can see from the above timeline that, in the sense of national vote-percentage, Corbyn in 2017 did about as well as Blair did in 2001, nearly as well as Blair did in 1997 (!) and far better than Blair and Labour did in 2005. Corbyn also, both in 2017 and 2019, did as well as or better than both Brown and Miliband did in 2010 and 2015.

In 2019, Corbyn-Labour slumped, but still got 32.2% of the national vote, which was as good in rough figures as Miliband in 2015, and better than Brown in 2010. In fact, it was only 3 points off Blair’s 2005 performance.

The national vote percentage of Labour declined steadily from 1997 right through to Corbyn’s leadership! The 2010 and 2015 results were similar in terms of percentage. Corbyn did better than his two most recent predecessors and almost as well as Blair!

I say the above not to praise Corbyn, but to bury Labour. It can be seen that both the Tony Blair 43.2% in 1997 and the Corbyn 40% in 2015 were anomalous in a picture otherwise of decline, or at best stagnation, that started around 1970.

My main point in practical terms is that returning to some mythical “Centrism” will not help Labour. “Centrism” seems to be somewhere between “Con-lite” and social democracy; pro Israel; anti-socialist; anti-national; globalist. Finance capitalism but with some crumbs thrown to the pigeons. You have seen what has happened to the LibDems who espouse similar ideas. Smashed. 11 MPs, which will, after boundary changes and another election, probably be 3 or 4. Or none.

Of course, Labour’s poor recent performance was to a large extent the result of truly relentless Jew-Zionist propaganda since 2015 and especially since the 2017 result (which showed that Labour might actually be able to win a majority or at least become the largest party in the Commons). Labour, especially Corbyn, has been trashed daily in the msm as well as on social media. That was not the only factor, but it was very significant.

The idea that Labour will suddenly become “electable” if it bows the knee to the Jews and abandons any “socialist” ideas is ridiculous. In fact, Corbyn and McDonnell should have stopped parrotting the Zionist “holocaust” nonsense (and stopped recounting 1930s Communist/Jewish propaganda around “Cable Street” etc as well); they should have fought back. Idiots.

Corbyn supporters write

“Cosmic Landmine” used to follow my Twitter account (before the Jews had me expelled). Good to see that he is still trucking.

Below, a despairing Labour supporter tweets…

Perhaps that tweet should read “Why is Jess Phillips, who always doormats for the Jew-Zionists, is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, parrots “holocaust” propaganda, and who trashed her own party and leader during the recent General Election campaign, getting so much airtime?“…

Look at this Daily Mirror article by a former Labour adviser. Not a word about suffering British people: unemployed, poor, disabled, sick, young people without hope of their own homes or even decently-paid work, just two or three paragraphs about Jews Jews Jews. Typical. System-Labour:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/i-ran-jeremy-corbyns-leadership-21103136

It’s rubbish. That’s machine-“Labour”, Mirror “Labour”, Kevin Maguire tribal “Labour”. Failed Labour.

…and here is Matthew d’Ancona, another System mouthpiece and Conservative Party partisan, pushing bad joke MP Jess Phillips for Labour leader:

https://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/talented-strong-and-relatable-jess-phillips-is-labour-s-best-asset-a4316766.html

Mary Creagh

Seems that Mary Creagh cannot quite bring herself to accept that her well-paid position, with its decent salary, very generous expenses and plenty of opportunity for both “donations” from here and there and also outside income possibilities such as “consultancies”, has been taken away by the voters of Wakefield. She still calls herself “MP” on Twitter. As rather sarcastic people tend to say on Twitter, “bless”.

Mary Creagh is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, and a frequent and fervent critic of “anti-Semitism”. All the same, the Jewish lobby could not save her and she will not be an MP again. I expect that “they” —you know, (((they)))— will find her “a nice little earner”, but her eviction from Westminster must give those “Friends of Israel” still in Parliament pause, nicht wahr?

Note the final sentence at the foot of that Independent profile of Wakefield, Yorkshire, a few weeks before the General Election: “Personally,” he says, “I think a lot of people here just won’t vote. I think they’ve had enough of it all.

Was that not the truth of the GE 2019 result? Conservative vote up just 1.2% nationally, but Labour vote down, and by 8%. Labour may have lost, but this was not a Conservative victory, as such. People were not voting Labour, maybe not voting at all, or were in a few cases voting Con to spite Lab. They were not voting Con for “positive” reasons.

Blink and you would miss it

Ah, nearly missed it: a small news story about the winding-down or winding-up of the “Independent Group for Change”, briefly known as “Change UK”, the party whose meetings tended to attract a crowd of about 5 (literally), once or twice actually getting into double figures, and where the audience was always outnumbered by the Press and sometimes by the few on stage.

Anna Soubry is now off to swim in a vat of gin.

Trump impeachment

Americans like a bit of drama. When I lived in the central/shore area of New Jersey, local TV (based in New York City) would sometimes report on an expected storm, sending a reporter out onto the New Jersey beaches dressed in raincoat and scarf. Often enough, the waves were disappointingly languid, resulting in a non-event.

That is how I see the “Trump impeachment”— lots of noise, but no result that means anything. Trump is sent for trial by the Democrat-controlled lower house, sent for trial to a Senate where the Republican majority will secure his acquittal. Over there, they regard that sort of waste of time and effort as “democracy”. I just call it “farce”.

Meanwhile, in another fake democracy…

Something more to think about

Final words
