I myself am not on Facebook, but that reminds me of the attitude of the Bar Standards Board [BSB] when a pack of Jews called “UK Lawyers for Israel” complained about me to the BSB in 2014, a malicious complaint that led to my disbarment nearly two years later, in 2016: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

Out of 150,000+ tweets and retweets posted over a number of years, and about 100 complained of by those Jews, a mere 7 (SEVEN!) were thought to be “grossly offensive” by the BSB and so formed the basis for the quasi-trial (Bar Disciplinary Tribunal hearing) in October 2016.

In fact, the allegedly offensive tweets were reduced in number at hearing to only 5 (FIVE). Out of 150,000+…Over 6 years of Twitter membership.

My point here is other, to wit that my tweets, all general comments about society and politics, were true in all particulars. One, at which the Tribunal took particular offence, was that Michael Gove [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Gove] was “a pro-Israel, pro-Jew expenses cheat“. That was deemed “grossly offensive” despite the fact that the facts alleged by me were, in fact, facts.

In other words, I was condemned for having tweeted the truth. Where is the greater offence, the crimes or defaults of a politician, or the tweets posted and which commented on those defaults?

I might add that, in 2016, the general public was not aware (neither was I) that snivelling Jewish-lobby puppet Gove was (is?) also a regular cocaine abuser.

The other four tweets which sank me at Tribunal were also all true…

Truth is often no defence in the public-private politically correct and Zionist-dominated police state of 2020 Britain.

What should be done with Professor Ferguson and others?

Bicycle riders are a nuisance, especially in the semi-rural English coastal area where I live; dark clothing, often no lights, usually no street lighting. Having said that, car drivers are often very negligent too.

My own niece, an Australian citizen working temporarily in West London, was knocked off her pushbike early in the year, and was lucky not to have been badly injured. The “accident” happened at an intersection where she had the right of way. The driver briefly stopped , then sped off. The police (who could have seized cctv evidence from nearby businesses, but did not), were useless. The hit-and-run driver, probably a non-European, has never been traced, identified, or punished.

I agree with Hitchens on the liberty point (not to have to wear helmets) but it is true that many have lost their lives by reason of not having been wearing helmets.

Around 1988 or 1989, I was asked by a friend and former Russian-language teacher of mine, the now-deceased Dostoyevsky translator, Ig Avsey, a good-hearted if eccentric fellow [https://www.theguardian.com/education/2013/dec/09/ignat-avsey-obituary], to investigate the death of his 30-something nephew, an employee at the BBC radio monitoring facility (now closed) at Caversham Park, close to Reading: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Park

Ig told me that his nephew had suddenly fallen down at home (in the Caversham Park suburb close to the monitoring station; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Park_Village); he later died. Ig was (unwarrantedly) suspicious of the nephew’s girlfriend, with whom the deceased had recently had a child; mother and baby also lived in the house.

Ig seemed to think that the young woman, a Ukrainian in her twenties, might have had a drunken argument with the nephew, and hit him with something. There had been a head injury, but the police were not treating it as suspicious.

Having heard of the deceased nephew (and having once briefly met him in London, several years before these events), I was aware that he was a fairly heavy drinker. On the night of the death he had apparently taken a fairly considerable amount of drink at the bar within the monitoring centre.

Anyway, I attended the inquest held in Reading, though only as observer (I was at the time not yet Called to the Bar). Ig had instructed Counsel, a fairly confident young woman whose name escapes me but who made a career at the Bar (I used to see her around the Inns in later years).

The inquest was a rather sad waste of time, as many are. The trail seemed to have gone cold.

However, some weeks after that, the report of the inquest, printed in the local newspaper, brought forth a bus driver who declared that he had been driving his bus one evening when a cyclist, not stopping where a cycle path met the road, and the man not wearing a helmet, had shot across in front of the bus, which had stopped short; the cyclist had, despite not having been struck, fallen off onto the road. He had been helped up, and had continued on his way, obviously somewhat the worse for drink.

So there it was. No espionage connection, no drunken domestic argument and assault, just a somewhat intoxicated man who fell off a pushbike and was not wearing a safety helmet. His choice, his accident, his death.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to read more about Ig Avsey, I have mentioned him in blog posts occasionally: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/09/24/diary-blog-24-september-2020/comment-page-1/ (scroll down until you find the relevant bit).

Rare pleasures

Had two relatively rare pleasures, one being traditional fish and chips, the other being a glass or so of Royal Tokay. The fish and chips was the first I had had for months, the Tokay (5 putts.) the first for at least 10 years. Both very pleasant.

At the same time, I saw University Challenge, another alumni match (Durham and Downing College, Cambridge). As on previous occasions, I did better than both teams. In a sense, that pleases me, but in another sense it displeases me (that highly-paid and respected broadcasters, scribblers and others are so damned ignorant in this country!).

BBC World Service

Woke up to some interminable BBC World Service Outlook programme, based around a black girl with sickle cell anaemia. Next up was something called Witness History, which might have been better entitled Witless History. Basically, more anti-white, anti-European propaganda, this time based around the history of UNESCO, and featuring an angry, shouting UN career “diplomat” from Senegal.

The World Service continues to be very poor.

Blogging, like tweeting, is mainly a waste of time and effort. Maybe 99% a waste (the blog; tweeting, 99.9%!)). I blog and will continue to do so, not because of that 99%, but because of the 1%.

Ukraine

As Peter Hitchens has written, Ukraine has been at the centre of many of the conflicts of the past century. Bolshevism, the White Guard, the Russian Civil War, Collectivization, Lebensraum, the war of 1941-45 etc.

During the Second World War, many Ukrainians supported the German invasion, as they had the German anti-Bolshevik occupation after the First World War.

Now we have a situation which has developed from that where the old Soviet Union collapsed and, understandably, after 70 years of Sovietism and/or war, many Ukrainians felt that they would be better off independent of Russia, an aim of many since the 19th Century.

Ukrainian-Americans were an important factor in the Ukranian nationalist revival, which however was before long taken over by Jewish-Zionist elements. One must never forget that the Khazars were from regions now partly in Ukraine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazars; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazars#Judaism.

Sadly, many of the hopes of the Ukrainians were dashed in the 1990s and thereafter. Corruption, poverty, gangsterism, and a wave of Jewish carpetbaggers arriving from the USA and elsewhere. I even saw that some Jewess from Maida Vale (the area of London where I spent most time over the years) had bought a confectionary factory there!

The “Orange Revolution” of 2004-2005 was basically a Jewish-funded NWO/ZOG plot, though you will look in vain for any hint on Wikipedia…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Revolution.

Now, Ukraine’s President, Prime Minister, and other top figures are Jews! One is even a Israeli citizen!

Ukraine was the germ of Russia itself. The Vikings or “Varangians”, as they are known in Russia, sailed down the great rivers of that part of the world (Don, Dniepr, Volga etc) and founded Kievan Rus, which is where Russia began, along with Novgorod: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.

Varangians | Familypedia | Fandom
[Nikolai Roerich: Guests from Overseas]

Ukraine and Russia have always developed together. Not always in great harmony, but always together. That partnership is now fragile and under attack.

The Crimea was placed administratively under the control of the Soviet republic of Ukraine in 1954: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimea. The population, though, is mainly Russian (65%; Ukrainians 15%; Crimean Tartars 10%; others 10%).

The Russian reassertion of sovereignty in 2014 was opposed by “the West” (NWO), which since then has completely taken over “independent” Ukraine and is building a great naval base on territory controlled by the Kiev government.

As Peter Hitchens says, these “NATO” (NWO) incursions are a direct threat to Russia, to its integrity and future. As Hitchens notes, imagine what would happen if the Russians did something similar in the Gulf of Mexico…

We may be looking here at the genesis of World War Three. At the same time, “NATO” forces are engaged in military exercises both in Ukraine and in the Baltic states.

Without Ukraine at least as neutral, Russia, as a near-superpower, is no longer in existence. Indeed, it would be not very viable, long-term, as a state at all, especially looking at the slow infiltration of Chinese influence in the Eastern part of Siberia (the former Soviet Far East).

[“Russia does not have borders; it is wherever there are Russian people”]

Russia may be relatively poor compared to the USA and the EU, but it has both nuclear and non-nuclear forces which can match the “West”. Yes, the USA can destroy Russian cities and bases ten times over, and it is not known for sure whether the Russians can destroy the similar America targets ten times over, five times, or only once! Is there any difference?

In fact, were, say, New York, Washington DC, Seattle, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Boston to be destroyed, would the USA even be able to function? Would it take 10 years to recover? 50? 100?

This is a road better not travelled down.

I do not often agree with Maajid Nawaz, but…

One of the best Twitter accounts.

Exactly. The US Constitution is largely anachronistic and ineffective. Also, this is not a debate; it is a war. So far, mostly a cold war. So far.

A very important tweet. Had I the money, I would buy a country estate. I notice, incidentally, that the supply of such estates in the UK has lessened in the past couple of years. The wealthy are trying to buy lifeboats…

The Bealtaine Cottage Twitter account and website is also worth looking at: https://bealtainecottage.com/

Quite. I thought, earlier in 2020, that to create new hospitals was a great achievement even bearing in mind their limited aims and equipment etc, but now I wonder whether those “Nightingale Hospitals” were just part of a propaganda “big lie”…

Just as the most enthusiastic supporters of mass media and social media censorship now are those who, in the past, would have fought for liberty: journalists, MPs, published authors etc.

The Jewish influence in society (and especially in the mass media and the legal profession) is a large part of all this.

Diary Blog, 18 September 2020, including more thoughts about the “virus” situation and about Communications Act 2003, s.127

Coronavirus

This really is becoming ridiculous. “Local lockdowns”, a threatened second national “lockdown”, the population scared out of their stupid skin by deliberate Government action, people forced to wear facemasks and muzzles (enforced by busybodies and nuisances, including toytown police and “Covid marshals”, meaning retired or unemployable pests wearing yellow jackets and carrying clipboards).

The economy is in a far worse state than most want to admit. Huge numbers of people are losing their jobs, their small businesses etc; the NHS has abandoned vast numbers of non-Coronavirus patients; dentists are mostly still not working; young people leaving school and university have very little chance of a job, let alone a decent job.

The Government has so far bought off dissent and opposition: doctors and some other NHS staff have been chucked 4% pay rises even though most are working far less than they were 6 months ago. Business has received some financial help. Employees not able to “work from home” have been furloughed on 80% pay in many cases. Some are even better off, in real terms, than when they were working! This is madness.

The part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister is a deflated balloon now, and he (andhis mostly Jewish and Indian joke-Cabinet) plainly have no idea what to do except to keep the “Coronavirus” fear propaganda going.

I wonder whether the Government will choose the easy path in November and continue “furlough” payments, or not? “Boris” (Boris-idiot) usually chooses the easy way out, so it may be that payments will continue. If not…

There never should have been a “lockdown” (shutdown) of the economy and society. Only pubs, nightclubs, Tube trains, buses (and those not indefinitel), combined with control of inward flights.

The Government should have concentrated on getting people to behave reasonably (eg by not going to crowded hot venues), washing hands frequently, and so on. Self-help, helped by official advice, not fake “laws” and bullying.

I bet that, once the economy really tanks, the same people who are the greatest zealots for “lockdowns”, facemask muzzles and not opening schools etc will be the most vociferous in wanting more money spent on this, that and the other, money that will not exist thanks to the shutdown of the economy for months (or years?).

Free speech and Communications Act 2003, s.127

I happened to see this article by a Professor Tettenborn, whom I met once or twice when I was a barrister in Exeter 18 years ago, and who is now, it seems, Professor of Commercial Law at Swansea University: https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/09/16/we-need-an-overhaul-of-section-127/

I decided to offer the Law Commission my views on that very bad law, so very badly-drafted and so open to abuse (nb. the paragraph-format has been removed):

Re. Consultation on Communications Act 2003, s.127.

I have just read the following article by a Professor Tettenborn: https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/09/16/we-need-an-overhaul-of-section-127/.
I do not know Professor Tettenborn as such, though I did sit as a “Lord Justice of Appeal” with him in 2002, when judging an Exeter University student moot held at the historic Guildhall in Exeter. I was at the time a barrister in chambers in Exeter.
Please find below links to my blog pages detailing my own experiences around the notorious “bad law” Communications Act 2003, s.127.
While the attached articles are self-explanatory, I should like to make the point that this bad law, poorly drafted, has exercized what I believe a justice of the Court of Appeal once described as “a chilling effect” on legitimate freedom of expression in the UK (one —apparently now-ignored— provision of the 2003 Act even purports to criminalize anything posted online which is deemed “false”!).
This law has been used (misused) by, in particular, the pro-Israel “Zionist lobby” or “Jewish lobby”, to attack those with whom it disagrees. A brief search on the Internet will throw up numerous open admissions to that effect, i.e. that Zionist Jews in the UK and USA have been and are using what is sometimes termed “lawfare” against British people in the UK, meaning the making of politically-motivated attacks on people, complaints to police, social media organizations, professional regulatory bodies.
Two of the most active abuser-organizations of the law in question are “UK Lawyers for Israel” and the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which overlap in terms of membership.
Key individuals engaged in such “lawfare”: Mark Lewis (solicitor, now resident in Israel), Stephen Silverman (resident in South Essex),Gideon Falter (resident in London and elsewhere), and Joe Glasman (resident in London area). There are others, almost all Jewish (there are odd exceptions), as are the three persons just mentioned here.
I myself have been a victim of lawfare, partly detailed in the two articles appended. As a result, I have been disbarred (2016), questioned under caution by police (2017) and expelled from Twitter (2018).
The organizations above now perch like vultures waiting for selected victims to post something online that they can claim is “grossly offensive”. This is political interference, by a special-interest lobby, with the rights of the citizen.
The Communications Act 2003, s.127 is an entirely tyrannical (and badly-drafted) piece of legislation.
Free speech must be protected now. By “free speech” I mean speech, and other communication and publication, on socio-political, historical and religious subjects.
Thank you for your attention.
Please note that I require no reply.

These are the articles mentioned above:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and
https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

I hope that the Law Commission finds my articles and views of interest. At least someone is willing to speak the truth. If no-one else does, I have to…

Professor Tettenborn finishes his article thus: “Nevertheless, this is a proposal that undoubtedly takes the law in the way it should be going, and increases freedom of speech. It may not go as far as you wish, but it is better than nothing. Even better, it is merely a proposal, and the Law Commission welcomes comments on it. This is your chance. You have until 18 December. Any comments should go to online-comms@lawcommission.gov.uk or to Online Communications Team, Law Commission, 1st Floor, Tower, 52 Queen Anne’s Gate, London, SW1H 9AG. Feel free.”

So do it…

I might add that the Professor, though he mentions silly “Count Dankula” and his saluting dog, overlooks victims such as Jez Turner, Alison Chabloz, and me, among others. Still, better half a pint than no pint.

There could be a place for someone with such skills…

These people should be on our side…and want to be.

For all their toughness, some of these Russian airborne troops are very decent people. I knew several former members of the Soviet VDV (Air Descent Contingent) when I lived in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 1996-1997. Very solid people.

Their parachuting skills are certainly in a different league from mine! My report card from my first jump (over Salisbury Plain in, I think, 1977, maybe 1978), made out by a former sergeant of the Parachute Regiment, said “exit slow, no position, no count, no effort; landing OK.”! The slow exit referred to was me having to climb out of the small cabin of a Cessna and halfway along the wing, while gripping at a strut, before casting off into the void (backwards…); you were then supposed to get into a certain body configuration in the air, while shouting out a count of 1-10. This is not easy! After that, floating peacefully thousands of feet down to Salisbury Plain was “a doddle”. Do people really do it for fun?!

Diary Blog, 12 August 2020

I can relate to that…

Coronavirus

My view about all that has changed little or not at all in the past 5 months. I think that “the virus” swept through Europe in March/April, peaked then, and after that subsided. The death toll in the UK has dropped steadily since just before the middle of April, and that has been the situation in most if not all of Europe, regardless of whether the country concerned had a “lockdown” (shutdown of almost everything) or not.

Naturally, mass testing has resulted in many more “new cases”, people who, yes, have “the virus”, but who have few or no symptoms. Ludicrously, the recent increase or bulge in “cases” has trumped the falling death rate in terms of the governmental response.

As for the facemask nonsense, only now, when the death rate is almost flat, has the UK government of clowns mandated the wearing of masks or muzzles.

At present, in August 2020, on any given day, any UK resident has a one in THREE MILLION chance of dying with or from (mostly “with”) Coronavirus! At present, for example, a UK resident would have to take about 11,000 train journeys to even be infected! Not to die; just to be infected.

A society cannot live, certainly cannot live decently, when its population is muzzled and its economy shut down. Now, at last, most businesses in the UK are again open, but the retail ones are supposed to police the wearing of facemasks by their customers. I cannot see that that will encourage shoppers; quite to the contrary.

Already, millions of people in this country have been laid off (or not taken on) despite the “furlough” and other payments from central government funds. There will almost certainly be millions more.

This should be, in logic, the moment when everything is allowed to open up again, with the arguable exception of pubs and nightclubs. Of course, had it been my decision to make, Britain never would have been “locked down” anyway (except for pubs and nightclubs…and inward flights).

Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock (advised by the ludicrous SAGE people) did everything wrong, pretty much: “locked down” most businesses, forced Britain to take a massive hit economically, destroyed much of the feeling that UK people still had civil rights, destroyed the proper functioning of the legal and courts system, turned the police into toytown bullies and nuisances, failed to stop inward flights; and even now are making the wrong decisions: mandating useless facemasks or muzzles, “locking down” towns or parts of cities etc.

Britain has survived a lot in its history, but I am not so sure that it will survive, in a recognizable form, this “virus” panic. Respect for the police and law has been greatly weakened, people know that the government are a bunch of clowns, but the official Opposition is similar and in fact almost invisible.

The consequences of the “virus” panic might be overcome, were they to stand alone. However, Britain has to contend with other pressures coming at the same time: the Brexit effect for one.

I supported Leave, support Brexit, but the governments of Theresa May and Boris-idiot have mishandled Britain’s exit to an extent that surprised even a reluctant cynic like me. Now, Britain is looking at potential chaos in some areas, at least initially.

Then we have the continuing migration-invasion, which not only does the government seem powerless to halt, but which it is actually encouraging! Boris-idiot has invited 4 million Hong Kong Chinese to live in the UK, which would require (will require?) enormous amounts of building, road construction etc.

To put it one way, 4 million people equates to nearly 1.5 times the population of the whole of Greater Manchester (2.8 million) or approximately the population of the Birmingham metropolitan area (4+ million).

To put it another way, Boris-idiot has invited a population the equivalent of between a quarter and a third of that living now in the entire London area sprawl to come to the UK.

Also, the “points-based” immigration system which is present government policy will mean that 660 MILLION immigrants could, in principle, come here. Yes, I know that 660,000,000 will in fact not come here, but 66 million might, and 6 million (oh…) or more certainly would.

This is more than simply the careless negligence of an incompetent part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister. It is “the Great Replacement” or “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan“: https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Replacement

In other words, we see that the incompetence of the present UK government masks more obviously sinister motives by those standing behind the present government.

That one made me laugh, and reminded me of the Fawlty Towers episode, The Germans, which ended with the Major saying “Naughty moose!”…

One has to ask, what kind of country allows itself to be “led” or “ruled” by a Cabinet composed almost entirely by persons of alien origin? Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc.

Meanwhile this [below] is Labour’s Shadow Chancellor. No, really…

Two points on the above: firstly, the tweeter may or may not be aware that, just like that little pissant Robert Jenrick, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman (a lawyer), and their children are being brought up as Jewish. In other words, Starmer is completely in the Jew-Zionist pocket (to say the least); Starmer is also a Labour “Friend of Israel”.

Secondly, that sad scene from Jerusalem reinforces the fact that where Jews live in any but very small numbers, non-Jews have no decent life and certainly no freedom. That applies as much in the UK as it does in occupied Palestine (“Israel”). You only have to look at how Zionist Jews in the UK are trying to strangle free speech. Take a look at my own experiences in this regard, or some of such, over the past 6-7 years:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/ https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

The Zionist assault on freedom in the UK has been intensifying for years.

What the pseudo-socialists of today cannot accept is that National Socialism in Germany actually created, in a few short years (really 6 years only, the years of peace 1933-39) a society which gave the majority, in fact the vast majority, of the German population, benefits hitherto only promised as “pie in the sky” by finance-capitalist parties and the social-democrat and socialist parties, let alone the KPD (German communists), who supported the blood-soaked and poverty-stricken rule of Stalin in the Soviet Union.

It turns out that Ms. Butler was not stopped (in fact the car seems to have been being driven by a white man of some kind) “because she is black“, because that car had tinted windows! Or maybe it was after dark. Will check…

I expect that Dawn Butler would make a good candidate for my occasional series, “Deadhead MPs”. In fact, looking at her Wikipedia entry, I am unsure how she has avoided being profiled by me already: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawn_Butler#Expenses.

Some Parliamentary constituencies in the UK, particularly in London, are becoming like some of the more “ghetto” cities in the USA, places where only blacks can stand for election, realistically, because the black mobs there will only vote for a black candidate, no matter how stupid, uneducated, uncultured, incompetent or corrupt.

Poor England. It’s almost gone now.

Coronavirus (again)

More Britons have been killed by flu and pneumonia than coronavirus for seven weeks in a row, new data has revealed. 

Research published by the Office for National Statistics found influenza caused more deaths in the UK than Covid-19 between June 19 and July 31.  

In the seven-week period, 6,626 Britons were killed by flu or pneumonia – compared to 2,992 coronavirus deaths.” [Daily Mail]

Late evening

In the car earlier, heard a piano piece (via Radio 3) by someone whose name I did not catch, and who apparently was a noted young female composer who died young (I think that the presenter said aged 27). It caught my attention because it was called “Maida Vale“, and may have been (I don’t know) inspired by visits to the BBC studios, Maida Vale, which still exist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_Vale_Studios (Wikipedia says that closure was announced in 2018, but as of today, the studios are, it seems, still in temporary use, if I did not mishear; I thought that the programme was being broadcast from there, but I was reading at the time too).

[BBC Maida Male Studios, London]

I myself lived in Maida Vale for about 20 years (but with breaks), though I was in Little Venice, and the BBC studios are much further out.

As to that short piano piece, it was actually quite intriguing, the style see-sawing between a French Belle Epoque composition and something almost in the style of Gershwin, I thought. That was my not very considered impression, anyway.

Ah, well thanks to the wonder of Google, I have found the composer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morfydd_Llwyn_Owen, who was Welsh, and died at the tragically-young age of 26, in 1918.

I was obviously wrong about her possible connection with Maida Vale Studios though, despite the fact that the building was constructed in 1909. She may have known the building, though not as studios. It was an ice-rink at first, and only became BBC studios after reconstruction in 1933-34.

Well! Small world. The lady was apparently friendly with not only D.H.

I myself knew a lady who, as a young girl, knew Yusupov, who became a friend of the girl’s father and stayed with them in the 1930s at their estate in East Prussia. By a strange quirk of fate, the lady I knew lived, when I knew her, in Maida Vale and had done since the late 1950s.

Diary Blog, 24 July 2020

One of the aspects of the present madness that interests me is not only how supine half of the public has been, but the extent to which the kind of people most rebellious, and also vocal about “rights”, in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, are now the most eager to submit to State authority: the “socialists”, “Left-wingers” (I myself disparage such “right”/”left” terminology, though), civil rights activists etc.

Don’t believe me? Look on Twitter. The kind of people in the categories just listed are all but begging to be “locked down”, monitored, tested, traced, masked, muzzled and generally told what to do, when to do it, and what to wear while doing it.

As I have blogged in the past, the degeneration of that part of the body politic is palpable.

You see it in other ways too: the wish not to leave the EU, because the EU (they imagine) will control things, control them, lay down rules for everything…

Again, you see it in the wish to be subject to the arbitrary constraints of Twitter and other online platforms; and the allied wish to “report” those whose views dissent from the shibboleths of the Twit-pack.

Below, two tweets about the latest Jewish or anti-Corbyn legal activity:

Mark Lewis cannot be “disbarred”, because he is not and never has been a barrister, though he is a solicitor and (at least as yet) not struck off.

I have blogged fairly extensively (mostly in 2018 and 2019) about Lewis and his conspiratorial, unhinged and disgraceful behaviour:

Have a read of the above. Lewis was and is aware of everything I wrote about and against him; his Jew-Zionist friends and allies monitor my writings obsessively and have done for years: Lewis himself has been obsessed with me for years, since 2011 or 2012, and has plotted against me for all that time. Lewis has never sued me, though; indeed, he has never even threatened to sue me, despite everything that I have written, but has tried to strike at me covertly. (((Typical))).

The other Jews in the Mark Lewis/”Campaign Against Antisemitism” etc cabal(s) are aghast that Lewis and his clients cannot extract both flesh and blood from Corbyn; here below, fanatical Jew Zionist David Collier:

The tweet below made me laugh! I dare say that even Lewis himself might be (albeit bitterly) amused by it.

Even Lewis’s enemies often tend to accept him at his own valuation (and self-publicizing) as so-called “top lawyer”; yet at the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, those judging him were told by Lewis’s own Counsel that all he owned were a mobility scooter, a private pension worth £70 a week, and his own clothes! Even discounting the usual tendency of Jews (cf. Ghislaine “Maxwell”) to play the Jewish “victim” when caught out, I doubt that Lewis has millions (or anything much) salted away.

Below, some interesting quotations:

Of course, the “Jew who dislikes Jews” is a not-uncommon figure: in the historical past, Marx for one, who wrote to Engels “I am in Ramsgate; nothing but Jews and bedbugs“; through those figures cited in the tweet above, and on to the anti-Zionist Jews of today such as Miko Peled and Gilad Atzmon.

Yet another MP sex scandal. Almost normalized now. This particular idiot is apparently unsure whether he prefers girls or boys, so ineptly tries to have it off with both.

What still astounds me is the sheer mediocrity (at best) of so many MPs these days. So few have even a modicum of education, culture, or real belief in anything at all, let alone any genuine desire to serve the country or their constituents. Just trash, really.

When I became aware of the existence of Rob Roberts (about an hour ago), I was wondering whether he would make a good candidate for my Deadhead MPs series on this blog, but sadly he seems (judging by his Wikipedia entry) to have nothing interesting about him at all. Nothing. See for yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Roberts_(politician)

Coronavirus panic/scam

In the local authority area where I live (a quite large area of nearly 300 square miles in coastal and near-coastal Southern England, rural and semi-rural, with a few small towns and villages), the population is about 180,000 people. The “R” number has been varying below 1 and 2 (ie. number of cases per 100,000 population). In the past week, 1.8. There have been, therefore, about 2 or 3 confirmed new cases in the past week. Out of 180,000 people…

When you consider that only one out of dozens, perhaps a hundred, new cases will die from this condition, you can see that, in this particular area, perhaps one or two people are likely to die from “the virus” over the course of the next year! Sad for those people and their relatives, but not repeat not a reason to shut anything down, nor to make the population wear facemasks.

This is, thankfully, not the Plague.

The tweeter above, “Sarah Deech” or “@londonette”, is the daughter, I believe, of “baroness” Deech, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Deech,_Baroness_Deech, a Jewish woman who, when my “case” was being “investigated” by the Bar Standards Board from 2014 (the case having been brought against me, in effect, by “UK Lawyers for Israel”), was not only the Chair of the Bar Standards Board but also a Patron of…UK Lawyers for Israel!

By the time that the case came up before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, it having been decided that my (in the end, only) 5 supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets (out of between 150,000-200,000 tweets and retweets!) merited my being “tried”, “baroness” Deech had in fact been replaced by a different Chair, though only by a former UK Amassador to Israel, who was extremely pro-Israel and extremely pro-Jewish interests!

I raised the question of perceived bias (in the decision to take me before a Tribunal) at the hearing itself , but the (generally reasonably fair) retired Circuit Judge chairing the 5-person panel told me at least twice that whatever the merits of my claim that the decision-making process was flawed (because, as I submitted, “justice must not only be done but be seen to be done” and “no man can be a judge in his own cause“), it was not relevant , because what mattered was the justice of the hearing itself…

With all respect to that judge, I disagree. If a person is only “tried” because a biased process decided that he should be tried, then he is on the back foot from the start, no matter how “fair” the hearing is.

The above, in my view, is so even if “baroness” Deech took no part in the decision to haul me before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, though I find it hard to believe that she was, at the material time, unaware that an organization in which she was a major figure (UK Lawyers for Israel) was complaining officially about me to another organization which she headed and for which she had responsibility (the Bar Standards Board).

As a matter of fact, the hearing in October 2016, though generally fair in the way it was conducted, was wrong about, inter alia, whether my five tweets (the Jews had originally complained about many dozens!) were in fact “grossly offensive”.

Take the one about Michael Gove, in which I truthfully described the little bastard as something like a pro-Jew pro Israel expenses cheat. ALL TRUE (I was unaware at the time that the bastard was also a cocaine abuser and drunk!): https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/726458/Barrister-Ian-Millard-disbarred-anti-Semitic-tweets-Michael-Gove-Nicholas-Sarkozy

In fact, I could have appealed the findings of fact and/or the disbarment penalty, but, having ceased Bar practice in 2008, eight years before I was “tried” and disbarred, it would have been almost pointless. I did not care, though it does deprive me of being able to lunch at my (former) Inn when in London, which is a nuisance; I rarely visit London these days anyway.

Lincoln's Inn - The Great Hall - YouTube
[The Great Hall, Lincoln’s Inn, London]

Actually, the BSB did write to me a couple of years after I was disbarred, saying that I should have had the right to challenge the allocation of my case to a 5-person panel instead of a 3-person panel (only a 5-person panel can disbar) and that I could do so if I wished. I could not be bothered and so did not take that up.

I wrote about some of the above here: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ and may blog in greater detail at a later date.

Finally, I took a look at the composition of the present BSB (the actual governing board): 13 members (a coven? Only joking…), out of which 3-4 Jews. The kind of disproportion one sees everywhere.

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/about-us/how-we-regulate/our-governance/our-board.html

One of the present Board was actually an unsmiling “bookend” on the panel at my own “trial” in 2016, though I see no point in identifying her.

End “lockdown” now

What the government needs to do is to end the “lockdown”, right now, but also to keep advising people strongly, via the msm, re. washing hands (the only really effective way to prevent getting the virus) and reasonable social distancing (i.e. in particular avoiding crowded places and/or places where there are hot and excited people).

Michael Gove

Michael Gove, the pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby careerist MP and now Cabinet minister, is in the news again. It will be recalled that he was an expenses cheat in the 2005-2010 Parliament, to the extent that he was lucky not to be prosecuted for fraud. He is also a (supposedly former) cocaine abuser and drunk, who was also filmed in 2019, in the Chambers of the House of Commons, either dead drunk or drugged.

https://evolvepolitics.com/watch-michael-gove-accused-of-being-drunk-or-on-drugs-as-he-sways-and-stumbles-during-crucial-commons-debate/

Gove has a Jewish wife, Sarah Vine, who is a Daily Mail scribbler:

She is thought to come from a wealthy background and, although it is difficult to find out what her parents did, at the time of her marriage to Gove in 2001, they were resident in Monte Carlo. The wedding was at the beautiful village of Vence in the south of France and the reception was held at a local chateau.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jul/02/sarah-vine-daily-mail-columnist-and-driving-force-behind-goves-pm-dream

It was a tweet about Gove which was one of five tweets (yes, that’s right, only 5 out of 150,000+) that got me disbarred in 2016, at the instigation of a pack of Jews: see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ , or google “Ian Millard barrister” for a one-sided msm view. Now, my tweet about Gove can be seen to have been obviously true (as were the other 4). At that time, Gove had not yet been exposed as a “cokehead”, just as a fraudster, embezzler, doormat for Jews and Israel, and a backstairs manipulator.

The emerging British toytown police state

It strikes me that, in most revolutions (in their uncontrolled “street” phase), it is not the intellectuals, not the ideologues, not the “responsible” trade unionists or the faux-revolutionary newspaper scribblers and TV talking heads who are the first to take to the barricades, but the delinquent youths and the —to use the contemporary colloquialism—  the “totally pissed-off— who do so. They are the ones who assault the police, hang the HVO secret police (Hungary 1956) , burn down the headquarters of the local Stasi and destroy its files (East Germany/DDR 1989) and who create the conditions for an actual revolution going beyond mere temporary upheaval.

Who are those who are “ignoring the rules” of toytown dystopian Britain in 2020? Not the bloggers, not the journalists (not even the dissident ones), not the pesudo-religious priests, priestesses and other frauds. No, we see that it is the youth, or part of it, plus a hard core of people willing to think for themselves and show themselves unafraid of the state, as well as (whisper it) the blacks and other non-Europeans in the UK (who have no thought for the principles of liberty, but who just want the practical or actual freedom to go to parks, play football on Brighton beach etc).

There is no revolution happening in Britain. Not yet, anyway. However, I notice that the young are the ones mostly ignoring the new repressive law and the police-invented “rules” taken from Government ministers’ mere wishes.

My local online newspaper reports that the police have, inter alia, tried to apprehend 7 youths fishing. My God, fishing! What devilment is this?! In fact, “when the officers arrived, the youths ran off“. Meanwhile, in other evil, police were called to a beach where youths had been reported to be using a jetski. My God, don’t they understand that they could be “spreading Coronavirus“, “literally killing people“, and “destroying the NHS“?

Well, no, actually. Because they are not. This pathetic poundland police state-ism is driving even me up the wall. Fishing in small groups (people who already know each other anyway), or using a jetski on the sea (much as I dislike jetskis) are not behaviours with the slightest chance of spreading this bloody Chinese virus.

In fact, the police were out of luck with the jetski “criminals” too, because it appears that, “by the time officers arrived, the youths and the jetski had gone, but officers found the remains of a barbecue on the beach.” A barbecue? The bastards!

Joking aside, what does it take for “Middle England” (let alone the brainwashed plebs) to defend what little is left of their liberties and civil rights?

Actually, my impression is that the vast bulk of the British people have sold their soul not for fame, money (in any large quantity), or other of the usual inducements. No. Just chuck them a family-pack of loo paper, some dried pasta, and a bottle of booze. That’s them sorted…and goodbye all the fine words about “democracy”, “a society under law” (nb. “law“, not laws“), “freedom”, “civil rights”, “human rights” etc.

I don’t want to hear any more about the (large fake anyway) “wartime spirit”, “Dunkirk spirit”, “Blitz spirit” etc, and how “we” fought “tyranny” (as propaganda had it in WW2 and, germinally, for several years beforehand, as well as since).

We see the 100-y-o ex-officer raising £20M or more for the NHS, and he is quite rightly being honoured. Having said that, why does a National Health Service need to have monies raised for it by ad hoc crowdfunding? The fact is that the NHS has been both underfunded and, at least equally important, maladministered for years, even decades. In the past decade, vast sums have been shaven off NHS budgets and, since 2017, nurses have had their pay frozen.

Will the £20M-£30M raised be properly deployed or applied? Come to that, I wonder whether that 100-year-old ex-officer himself voted Conservative in 2010, 2015, 2017 or 2019??

More tweets about the current madness

Yes, the virus has killed a significant number of people, but the expected mass onslaught of deaths has not arrived. The NHS has a huge number of empty beds for the time of year. The mortality figures show a confused picture, not least because it is not clear how the authorities decide who is and who is not recorded as a Covid-19 death.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail]

https://alisonchabloz.com/2020/01/08/a-pound-of-flesh-just-in-time-for-shabbat/#more-7941

Alison will be at Derby Crown Court on Friday, should anyone be able to support her.

As a former barrister (disbarred 8-9 years after I ceased practice and by reason of a Jew-Zionist complaint against me by a pro-Israel cabal: see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/), I am aware that the moral support given to an accused even by one or two people is worth much.

Random thought

Saw this blog:

https://hippie-inheels.com/how-living-in-goa-changed-me/

I have never been there. I doubt that I would like it much.

I have lived in a number of countries in my life, from my own land, the UK (much of my life from 1956 to 2020); Australia (<3 years aged 10-13 in the late 1960s); USA (about 2 years within the years 1989-1993 in New Jersey and New York City, and then, much later, shorter business and personal trips to South Carolina and Florida); France (4 years but commuting every couple of weeks to the UK); Kazakhstan (one year, 1996-1997); Rhodesia (part of 1977); Turkey (a few months), Egypt (a few months), the Eastern Caribbean (a few months). Shorter visits and holidays etc have been many and varied, from Moscow to Cayman, Liechtenstein to Alderney, Tunisia to Poland (where I spent a total of, probably, about 3 months in the late 1980s), North Cyprus to Qatar, among many others.

Now? I am too European —and maybe too advanced in years now— to live in countries controlled by non-Europeans (and to tolerate their dirt and disorganization).

Harry and the Royal Mulatta

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jan/08/prince-harry-and-meghan-say-they-are-stepping-back-from-royal-family

Well, seems that those who said that the thick princeling would end up being taken to Hollywood were not wide of the mark…

That pair have become mere “celebrities” in a milieu where it sometimes seems that everyone and his dog is a “celebrity”. Even the Jew-Zionist lawyer, Mark Lewis, and his “she-once-read-Sky-News” second wife (the marriage lasted nearly a year) were posing as “celebrities” about 6 years ago. Now Caroline Feraday is a single mother (no, not Lewis, apparently), and is living in a small house in an obscure Californian suburb, and working in an office, while Lewis himself, now living in Israel, was found to have sent a number of people obscene or offensive messages while, it was said in his defence (!), almost doolally on prescription drugs. Censured and fined by the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, he was let off a heavier fine because having been, in effect, sacked by his law firm, the Tribunal heard that his only assets were his vulgar clothes, a pension worth £70 a week and a mobility scooter! Even his car was provided by the DWP, via the Motability scheme! The “top libel lawyer”…

Jess Phillips

A couple of things today re. uncultured loudmouth Jess Phillips, who thinks that she could be a prime minister! In the American vernacular, JESUS H. CHRIST!

Jess Phillips is a real freeloader even compared to most MPs:

The other thing is that I have still not been able to prove that Jess Phillips is maybe part-Jew or has some familial Jewish connection, which I have long suspected; but I notice that the Twitter Jew-Zionist cabal seem to favour her and, only today, I saw some System talking head tweeting about how it was “antisemitic” to oppose Jess Phillips. “The shark can scent blood a mile away when he is hungry…” [Control in The Spy Who Came In From The Cold]

On the stupidity front…

Ha ha! Oh, yes, the voters of Redcar voted to support the Jews! That’s plausible (not)…

Anna Turley was known as completely pro-Israel etc, so why did the Redcar voters not support her and vote for her and so, via her, the Jews? (though I concede that it may just be that the Redcar electorate is composed of badly-educated plebs easily fooled by the Sun “newspaper”. I have never been there, so cannot say).

Still, good riddance!

TV ads

I have blogged about this before, but it has now gone way beyond a joke when almost every single TV ad has to have a mixed-race couple (usually black man with white and often blonde woman) and usually mixed-race offspring. In fact, the situation now is worse even than it was when I blogged about that. It’s plainly a conspiracy, a kind of social engineering aimed at children and the young generally. Normalizing such liaisons.

Diary Blog, 31 December 2019; and also my thoughts, on the final day of 2019

Well, here we are…not on Merry Christmas but (maybe) near Happy New Year. Time for a few stray thoughts about the year passing away, the year(s) ahead, and about where UK society and the world may be going.

I am going to be adding to this throughout the day, in a stream of consciousness way, not in any particular order or with any fixed structure.

Bush fires in Australia

As a child of 10-13, I lived in Sydney, on the North Shore (Mosman/Cremorne), in the late 1960s (2-3 years). I recall seeing bushfire damage in the Ku-ring-gai Chase area (many miles to the North) once or twice (may have been a controlled burn fire gap), but only once saw an actual bushfire, and that was when my family drove up to Queensland in 1968. Somewhere in the Northern coastal part of New South Wales. We drove through an area with fire on both sides of the highway (Australia had no motorways then outside Sydney). That cannot of course be compared to the almost apocalyptic pictures we now see on TV from NSW and Victoria.

Temperatures? Well, I do recall that, one day, in Sydney, the news was full of how the next day would be the hottest ever recorded in Sydney. I think it got to 112F (44C). One day only, as far as I can remember. I think that that was in December 1967 or January 1968. I see from Wikipedia that Sydney’s record high, more recently, is recorded as having been 45C. So not very different.

Where it is now different is that such extreme heat now seems to go on for weeks or even months. I have heard so from members of my family who have visited Sydney a number of times in the past 20 years or so (a few even live there). They have no doubt that Australia is far hotter now than it was in the late 1960s. As I say, it is now not a question of isolated very hot days but of relentless heat every year for months at a time.

No-one had aircon in their home then!

For me, the question of “climate change” or “global warming” resolves into:

  • Is the climate worldwide getting hotter?
  • Is human behaviour part (or even all) of the causation?
  • What if anything can be done to ameliorate the effects, or even halt the process?

For me (obviously not a scientist and/or “expert”), again, the answers (provisionally) seem to be:

  • There is evidence that there is a warming trend worldwide, but the evidence is far from conclusive;
  • Human behaviour may be part of the causative trigger, but is unlikely to be the whole or only reason why the Earth’s atmosphere etc is warming (assuming that it is);
  • Human behaviour might make a difference but only if the really large-scale industrial powers, with overwhelmingly huge populations, cease to exist or to exist in the way that they now do. I am talking about, mainly, China and India.

What I can be certain about is that ridiculous rants by the likes of Greta Thunberg, and the kind of pathetic sub-terrorism indulged in by Extinction Rebellion will achieve nothing at all. I have blogged about these already:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/

as I have about green politics and the connection to social nationalism:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/17/social-nationalism-and-green-politics/

For me, it is clear that the problem is, at root, the huge human population on the Earth now, which is twice as large as it was even in 1970 and about twenty times what it was at the start of our present age (the Fifth Post-Atlantean) in or about 1400 AD.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/

I feel that a huge “correction” in coming. In fact, I am rather glad that I shall probably be discarnate when it happens, though I do feel a responsibility, not to do anything to prevent it (I have no power to do so anyway), but to plant a seed which may one day burst into life as a new super-race and super-culture.

The collapse of the recent “climate change” summit was inevitable. The large polluting countries, chief among them China and India, cannot do enough (on the premise that cutting back on “emissions” actually helps), the USA will not do much, so the international System and the System msm concentrate on the peripheral issues, such as “emissions” of carbon from countries such as the UK, Australia etc. The UK only produces about 1% of global carbon “emissions” anyway, so it scarcely matters, in reality, what the UK does. That is even more true in respect of Australia.

Russia and “the West”

Russia today is not the Soviet Union. It is merely a large nation-state which sits somewhere between being a regional power and being a superpower.

The Soviet Union wanted to take over the world and certainly Europe in the 1920s, 1930s and even 1940s. By the 1950s, its leaders knew that that would probably never happen. Just as the Schlieffen Plan solidified into the trench warfare of the First World War after 1914, the revolutionary and later at least expansionist aspirations of the Soviet Union had solidified by the late 1940s into the Cold War rivalry with the US-led “West”. After 1989, that had all but stopped but was then replaced by a Russian-nationalist ideology.

As it now is, Russia is not going to invade Europe, but NATO is encircling (has encircled) Russia, and is pushing. Don’t push Russia too far. It now has hypersonic missiles and is years in advance of the Americans. The new missiles can hit American targets within 15 minutes.

The general who oversees U.S. nuclear forces, Air Force Gen. John Hyten, said in February that hypersonic missiles can strike America within 15 minutes, half the time of ballistic weapons” [Bloomberg]

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-12-30/putin-s-hypersonic-nuclear-missile-stirs-fears-of-new-arms-race

The lesson is obvious: stop poking Russia with a sharp stick.

In terms of conventional arms too, if need be, Russia can place 4 million men in the field, and even its active forces dwarf those of Europe and are more effective as well. As for the Americans, they have technology and numbers, but do they have real will?

The New World Order tried to swallow Russia in the decade after 1989. It failed, thanks to the upsurge in Russian nationalism under Putin and also thanks to the Islamist upsurge.

Russia is unlikely to be the aggressor (in Europe) but do not underestimate its power.

Some people make the mistake of saying “Russia’s economy has fundamental weaknesses, therefore it is militarily weak”. A mistake made throughout history. The Medes and the Persians. The Spartans and the Persian Empire etc. Stalin said of the atom bomb, “we must have it even if we have to eat grass”…(cf. North Korea).

China

One of the jokes of recent years was the spectacle of the then UK Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, a former fireplace salesman, interrupting playing with his pet spider (yes, really…) to threaten both Russia and China with his meagre forces! What a total idiot! He even threatened to send one of Britain’s few (about 20) capital ships to the South China Sea! That would really frighten China, which has about 700 naval ships and submarines, and over 700 naval aircraft! Not to mention 255,000 sailors:

The UK, politically

I have blogged a great deal about the recent General Election. No point in regurgitating all that. Still, worth recalling that the 2019 Conservative vote only increased by 1.2 points over 2017. The Labour vote fell by 8 points. All the same, Corbyn did as well or better than Miliband or Brown, in national vote percentage terms, and not far short of Blair. Unfortunately for Corbyn, the national vote percentage is not the only factor.

The General Election of 2019 reinforced my view that Labour is now a niche party for the “blacks and browns” as well as public service people. It has no broad appeal. That however may change. Had only 18-24 y o voters voted, Labour would have captured almost all seats in England and Wales, and at least half of those in Scotland. The Conservatives would, by contrast, have no seats at all, not one. Is that a straw in the wind? Was 2019 the “last hurrah” for Labour, for the Conservatives, or for both?

The roots of the Conservatives in their new Northern seats are very shallow. Look at Hartlepool, a Labour seat even now. Labour received over a third of the vote, but both Con and Brexit Party over a quarter. Volatile, like all of the North and Midlands now.

It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that Labour, if radical, could bounce back and, with new voters coming up and retired elderly ones dying, seize back the field, all but wiping out a Conservative Party which in some respect is as weak as Labour.

Free speech in the UK

A matter close to my heart.

In the last couple of years, we have seen Jez Turner (Jeremy Bedford-Turner) convicted and (incredibly) imprisoned merely for making a humorous reference to Jews in a public speech, and the satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz convicted and briefly imprisoned (the matter is still in part under appeal as I write) for singing humorous songs!

What we face in the UK is an intensification of the assault on free speech, which is actually now being placed in the hands of police supposedly investigating “terrorism”! One man was convicted in 2019 of putting up “neo-Nazi” stickers on lamp-posts. Sentence? 2.5 years! Another was imprisoned for 2 years merely for posting remarks o Twitter and Facebook. The judge in that case was unwise enough to say that the harsh punishment was “to deter others”. A poundland Judge Jeffreys…

Etc

There is a huge amount still to say, but no more time today.

Happy New Year.

 

 

“Mark Lewis Lawyer” Tries to Have Part of the Case Against Him Thrown Out

  • The Jew-Zionist lawyer (solicitor) Mark Lewis, best known for the UK phonehacking cases of some years ago, is facing a disciplinary tribunal under the auspices of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, and is trying to have part of the case against him thrown out on the specious basis that he was “merely responding” to rude comments about him by “a Who’s Who of neo-Nazis” (as if that were a defence? Oh well, let’s leave that aside…he’s not my solicitor, thank God!). I post the link to the Law Society Gazette report below.

I should add that I am neither party nor witness in those disciplinary proceedings.

I shall be blogging further about this unpleasant individual, probably in considerable detail, at a later time. For the moment, I shall confine myself to saying that

  • Mark Lewis started to send me a small number of abusive tweets (unprompted by any tweets from me to him) in 2012 or 2013. I did not reply in kind and blocked him on Twitter;
  • Lewis’s then wife (a short-lived marriage), one Caroline Feraday (a “Z List” would-be “celebrity” about 20 years ago) was in fact the first to abuse me on Twitter, having seen a tweet by me about the “WW2 Jewish looted art” “restitution” scam, reported on by the Radio 4 Today Programme. Lewis joined in her hysterical abuse against me. (The marriage failed after less than a year and after a few years —in 2018— she had a child by another man in Southern California, to where she —and Lewis, for a while, in 2013— had relocated);
  • I had to block both Caroline Feraday and Mark Lewis on Twitter because of their unpleasant abuse; I should add that, until they started to abuse me online, I had never heard of either of them;
  • Some time after I blocked Mark Lewis on Twitter, I was informed (and saw evidence from his own online output) that he had tried to make complaint against me to the Metropolitan Police in or around 2013. I know the name of the police officer who was (in Lewis’s words) “dealing with the case”, a woman who had previously served in the Royal Military Police. The complaint failed (in fact, I was not even contacted by the Metropolitan Police);
  • Mark Lewis is or was a leading member of, and office-holder in, two Jew-Zionist organizations, UK Lawyers for Israel [UKLFI] and the so-called Campaign Against Anti-Semitism [CAA]. The first cabal (UKLFI) made complaint against me to the Bar in 2014 (6-7 years after I ceased practice, a purely political and malicious complaint based on a small number of tweets, none of which were addressed to any individual but were general comments on society). I was disbarred in 2016 as a result of that complaint. The second cabal (the CAA) has tried on several occasions to have me prosecuted, via malicious complaint to Essex Police [see link below] and elsewhere (but now is itself under investigation by the police in relation to several matters);
  • Mark Lewis has from time to time posted other rude or abusive comments about me online, the last being about a year or two ago;
  • Mark Lewis is supposedly now relocating to Israel, and the London law firm which employed him for a couple of years, Seddons, parted company with him a while ago.

Unfortunately, I was unaware until recently that Lewis was being “tried” for abuse online against others, and was only aware today that Lewis had made preliminary application to throw out the case in part on the basis that he was merely “replying” to abuse by “neo-Nazis” (in which category he apparently places me). In my case, I was tweeted by Lewis; I was neither rude nor insulting, still less abusive to Lewis, yet he was –unprompted– horribly rude and abusive to me, as was his short-term and hysterical then wife, though she soon moved on and concentrated on (risibly) trying to convince her Twitter followers —mostly bought– that she was still, really, a “celebrity” (apparently a few people still remember her reporting on London traffic congestion etc);

  • It is important to underline that I was never even rude, still less abusive, to Lewis. His abuse was unprompted, unexpected both in itself and in its ferocity, and not the result of anything I tweeted to him (he addressed me “out of the blue”).

I await the results of the disciplinary proceedings with interest.

Debate about this on Twitter…

Update, 23 November 2018

It appears that the hearing has in fact now started and that Lewis failed to get part of the evidence (and so the case) thrown out:

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/lewis-regulatory-action-inevitable-after-death-threat-tweets-tribunal-hears/5068449.article?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Lewis apparently has given evidence that, at times, he “had no idea what he was doing” because of the drugs he was prescribed! Glad that he is not my solicitor!

download

170217-lewis-die-e1533384703639

Psychotic (or maybe the MS he has afflicts mind as well as body); he himself, at trial, blamed drugs for some nasty tweets, but he stands by those shown above!

Update 26 November 2018

Lewis was given a fairly lenient penalty by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority for his sins: £2,500 fine plus £10,000 costs. Pity he was not struck off the solicitors’ roll. He admitted that he sometimes has no idea what he is doing because of prescription drugs. He’s on the way out.

On Twitter, the whole UK Twitter Jew Zionist cabal (many of them lawyers, several of them Jews with not obviously-Jewish names) is out in force, defending Lewis’s behaviour. Take a look on Twitter under “Mark Lewis” or “@mlewislawyer”.

Also, compare the lenient treatment given to Lewis (whose ferocious abuse was aimed at named individuals and addressed directly to them) to that meted out to me, disbarred for tweeting 7 (reduced to 5) tweets critical of or mocking Jew Zionism!

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

Update, 27 November 2018

Jews immediately set up crowdfunding pages for Lewis. Already, about £8,000 has been given (by Jews, presumably and judging from names of donors) and it seems likely that the SRA financial penalty and costs will all be paid that way. Lewis may even make a profit on it all! I cannot imagine that Lewis and his “carer”/”partner” Mandy Blumenthal (a property “investor”) are exactly short of money anyway.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, the debate continues:

The division is sharp: Jews and a few “useful idiot” non-Jews supporting Lewis (I dare say that most are unaware of the true facts of Lewis’s persistent and long-term abuse of people or have been misled by the story his Counsel put forward on his behalf); non-Jews mostly not supporting his position.

Here for example, we see Aisha Ali-Khan, an oddly pro-Lewis Muslim woman (and married to a one-time policeman, himself given a suspended sentence for a criminal offence as well as dismissed from the police), supporting him. She often calls on Twitter for the prosecution of supposed “anti-Semites” etc. Strange hypocrisy: she herself has been imprisoned two or three times for contempt of court, harassment and so on. Maybe she considers Lewis, as another abuser, to be a kindred spirit! I forgot to mention that, at one time, she was assistant to ex-Labour and Respect former MP George Galloway. I wonder what she was up to…

https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/16171212.george-galloways-former-parliamentary-assistant-jailed-for-contempt/

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-26873650

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/jealous-copper-spied-george-galloways-3943177

Pathetic minor academic Ben Gidley (another Jew-Zionist), here posing as one of his other Twitter faces, “Bob From Brockley” (yet another of his aliases is “@antinazisunited”; he was also “@TheSoupyOne” but was expelled from Twitter for –again!– harassment! Those Zionist Jews never seem to learn…), and here supports Lewis in reply to Katie Hopkins, dragging me into it all! Note that my featured tweet is not addressed to Lewis…In fact Gidley/BobFromBrockley is once again wrong: I have not been on Twitter for about 7 months now; I no longer have an account. Ben/Bob also falsely implies that I was part of “a concerted campaign” to harass Lewis. No…in fact I never tweeted to him except perhaps (and politely) once, when Lewis started his campaign against me (mostly from the shadows). That Twitter reply from me was in 2011 or 2012.

and it seems that Mandy Gargoyle is not very well thought of, either.

Here is some pseudonymous Jewess, “Anna”, attacking Katie Hopkins, and also persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz. I have seen tweets identifying “Anna” (and other accounts) as… Mandy Gargoyle, but I have no idea whether she is or not. Maybe not: probably straight from Tel Aviv, judging by the poor English (eg Alison Chabloz as someone’s “son“!). No matter. [note, 29 November 2018: the Twitter account “Anna” has now disclaimed being Mandy Blumenthal, though claiming that she is “honoured” that “one antisemite” “keeps on” making the association. No idea who that might be….I’m looking but not finding, today].

Here’s an amusing one. Jew (odds-on) who thinks that Lewis should not have been prosecuted by the SRA because tweeting in a personal and not professional capacity.

Well, I pleaded that (inter alia) when Jew-Zionists had the Bar Standards Board “prosecute” me (2014-2016). The tribunal decided (quite wrongly on the facts) against me. I never held myself out as barrister on my Twitter profile or in any of the 5 supposedly offending tweets (none of which was addressed to a named individual). Lewis has always (typical…) self-promoted as a “lawyer” (solicitor) on his Twitter profile. I shall be blogging about the so-called “top lawyer” in greater detail at a later date.

Anti-Zionist Jew, Gilad Atzmon, mentions Lewis and his behaviour here:

https://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2018/11/26/gilad-needs-additional-support

This is an amusing one, from Simon Myerson QC, who is part of the Jewish Zionist troll group called “@gnasherjew” on Twitter. My impression over the years is that he constantly tweets “as a Jew”, but here he claims not! In fact, his Twitter profile used to self-describe as “ocean-going Zionist QC”, a neat way of wearing his Jewishness on his sleeve while also bragging (about being both a QC and an ocean yachtie).

Update, 3 December 2018

The Jews continue to pile in for Lewis. Twitter is still full of Jews wishing Lewis well in his move to Israel (supposedly the day after tomorrow), and Legal Business magazine here quotes a lawyer saying things helpful to Lewis. Was the lawyer a Jew, one wonders?

https://www.legalbusiness.co.uk/blogs/media-lawyer-mark-lewis-fined-2500-in-controversial-sra-antisemitism-row/

and Legal Business continues:

“The partner added: ‘Is it the role of the SRA to intervene in Twitter rows? This is a case about boundaries, and it suggests that the SRA’s boundaries are in a different place to that of the public.’”

Well, how very supportive. Where were all these supporters of free speech when the Jew-Zionists had me disbarred for 5 tweets about society generally?

In fact not every tweeter has supported Lewis and his appalling behaviour:

Update, 4 December 2018

Another Jew lawyer weighs in on Lewis’s side, at the same time wishing him bon voyage to Israel…

A day or two premature, nicht wahr?

Update, 6 December 2018

Yes, the dog has indeed left!

Landing in Israel, Lewis said to TV reporters that Jews should clear out of Europe:

“In my opinion, Europe has ceased to be a place for Jews, we are a wandering people and it is time to wander again,” Lewis concludes”

https://www.10.tv/news/177728

https://www.timesofisrael.com/europe-is-finished-leading-lawyer-says-as-he-leaves-uk-for-israel/?fbclid=IwAR0zICcsod6xz3RfW92qUvwO_0ZgX3o4ovK-32XjGK9b2u6WVe8AGcCRwjs

Lewis says that “Europe is finished”, when what he means is “finished” in the sense of “no longer so easily exploited by Jew-Zionists”!

As for “finished”, he looks pretty finished himself, a shambling wreck in fact, as shown in this clip from RT News:

In fact, Lewis’s remarks seem to be almost incoherent. It is not clear whether that is because of disjointed RT News editing, the long flight to Israel, the effects of his medication on his brain (as mentioned in his recent “trial” before the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority) or some other cause (such as any degenerative effects on the brain caused by progressive MS). It has occurred to me several times over the past 6 years that Lewis’s brain might have been affected by some side-effect of his MS condition itself, but I do not know enough about MS or medicine generally to say whether that is possible (I read that it is, though) or likely. He often seems to me to leave rationality behind.

What would “Golda Meir” have said?

Dt6s0pEWwAEylHO

Anyway, here’s someone calling himself “Golden Anglo”, a tweeter who seems to be yet another critic of Lewis and his attitude etc…

Reminds me of this amusing ten-minute cartoon:

Update, 7 December 2018

Some (a random selection of) very recent tweets about Lewis and Blumenthal (funny though how RT News seems to have swallowed the same bs as the “British” msm about how Lewis is or was a “top lawyer”…)

 

Lewis denying that he has property in Israel:

Lewis may or may not have a house in Israel (yet), but he certainly has or had (I suspect still has) an apartment, as he admitted in this 2011 interview with the [London] Evening Standard:

“I was devastated,” he says. “I’d been turned down for so many jobs, I’m thinking to myself, I can’t go on any more, you can only get so many knockbacks. I’m giving in and going to my flat in Israel and retire in Eilat.”

https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/mark-lewis-my-ms-consultant-told-me-not-to-do-anything-stressful-so-i-went-after-murdochs-phone-6370688.html

Lewis, like Israel, prefers to get his “defence” in first…

In other words, Lewis (and Blumenthal) now exhibit their primary (in fact, really, only) loyalty, i.e. to the state of Israel and to their fellow-Jews. Yet Jews always say that it is “anti-Semitic” to say that Jews have (even) dual loyalty, let alone that they put Jewry and Israel first, before the host country (in this case, the UK). Here we have a typical case: while in the UK, Lewis and Blumenthal were “British” “patriots”, even putting themselves above real British people in that regard, but as soon as they have emigrated to Israel, Europe (not just the UK) is “finished”, “anti-Semitic”, “unsafe” and Britain is not a home for the Jews but just a “Hotel California” where they spent a few years, or a few generations…

The people I despise are the British ones who, out of naivety, or bribery, or fear of career repercussions etc, doormat for the Zionists. Most barristers, for example, are either such doormats or are silent through fear of being blackballed by the Jewish-Zionist lobby in the legal professions, and particularly by Jewish solicitors who might withhold work. The same applies in the world of entertainment and the msm in general.

Update, 8 December 2018

Tweeters are still commenting…

She made money out of a contrived Zionist stunt? It might not be on the “Ann Frank” scale but still, “not a bad little earner”…

…and Lewis’s ex-wife Caroline Feraday cannot stop herself from commenting! Well, why not? After all, he cannot slap her from Israel!

Dt6s0pEWwAEylHO

Meanwhile, Lewis answers one of hundreds of critical tweeters. Note that he —a Jew born and brought up in Manchester, UK— describes the Jews as “my people”: he’s left behind the fiction that he is “British” except in terms of one of his passports (he now proudly holds up his new (?) Israeli one). He’s an Israeli now even officially. I hope, though without much confidence, that he now shuts up about UK matters.

…and Mandy Gargoyle has now joined in, trying to intimidate a tweeter who is tweeting under a pseudonym. She is not very intelligent. Just as well. Malice and intelligence would be harder to laugh off.

Update, 10 December 2018, P.M.

Meanwhile, dirty little pro-Zionist propagandist Douglas Murray blogs in favour of Lewis. His brief piece made me laugh out loud, so credit where due! Lewis, says he, never sought limelight for himself! Hardy ha ha! “Modest” (ha ha!), “self-effacing” (ha ha ha!), “cerebral” (what on Earth is Murray on?!), “upholding…the principles of a free and fair society” (!). Ah, so that was what Lewis and his fellow Jew Zionists (of “UK Lawyers for Israel” and “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”) were doing when they had me disbarred for daring to tweet the truth, when they had Alison Chabloz prosecuted for singing songs, when they had Jez Turner imprisoned for speaking the truth in a public speech…

“Though he was near to limelight, he never sought it for himself. A modest, self-effacing and cerebral figure, his career was not about seeking personal notoriety, but of practising the law, representing his clients and upholding what he saw to be the principles of a free and fair society.”

https://unherd.com/2018/12/why-are-jewish-people-wandering-again/

Update, 16 December 2018

Here below, at the foot of this section, is one of Lewis’s tweets about me, from over 2 years ago. As you, the reader, will see, he refers to me as “failure as a barrister and as a human being”, among other things.

I suppose that most people who read that tweet were unaware of the irony: until Lewis got onto the “phonehacking” wagon, he himself was at rock-bottom. He had parted company with a firm of solicitors in Manchester under unclear circumstances (rather a theme…see below), had been divorced (ditto), and in or about 2009 was only making about £9,000 a year (as he admitted to a newspaper interviewer a few years later).

The phonehacking stuff paid off, and soon Lewis was busily “creating” a legend as “top lawyer”. The phonehacking stuff did not last long of course. Technology moved on and phonehacking is now just a footnote in legal history (it’s a purely UK story anyway: hardly anyone in the USA has heard of it). Lewis left his next firm, in London (where he was a “consultant”), under acrimonious circumstances (he much later sued that firm and they countersued, but it is not publicly known how that ended, the matter presumably having been settled and sealed).

Lewis married, in 2013, one-time local radio presenter Caroline Feraday. “Top lawyer marries celebrity”, or at least that is how the narrative went. Stories were seen in the Press about how Lewis “had clients in the USA” to where he and la Feraday would be relocating (to her new apartment in West Hollywood, no less). She, in her turn, seemingly had various Hollywood opportunities lined up, the newsreading public was told.  She already had a part in a TV sitcom arranged —had “been cast” in it—, the gullible (?) readers were told. More than that! She was busy “writing a book”, which was to be turned into a film and “several studios are interested…”

Lewis, the Daily Mail’s tame showbiz reporter was told by Feraday, had clients in the U.S. and would “commute” between LA and London. As 1950s people were wont to say, “get you!”…

Lewis and Feraday moved to West Hollywood, flying Virgin Upper Class (well, after all, they were, er, “celebrities”, weren’t they?) to LA. They joined the West Hollywood branch of the Soho House club, on Sunset Boulevard. “Celebrities” have more than a few thousand Twitter followers, of course, so they both “acquired” tens of thousands of new “followers”, Lewis ending up after a week or so with about 80,000!

Sadly, all that hype seemed to disappear like a mirage in Death Valley. La Feraday never did get into an American sitcom (or if she did, it must have bombed, or been pulled immediately…there never was one, I am guessing). I have no idea whether she ever got any part in American film or TV. Her breathless “look at me, people—a celebrity in sunny Hollywood!” Twitter account said nothing (that I saw, anyway) about her getting a acting part, but that is unsurprising. After all, why should an acting part on American TV, or in a film, go to someone without any acting experience, and who was nearly 40? The supposed book deals and film options also vanished without trace.

As for Lewis, his brave new Californian world crumbled into ashes. American lawyers soon realized that Lewis (unlike, er, me) had never qualified at the Bar of any American state and so was not qualified to practise in California (or any other state). Those lawyers made sure that the California Bar was aware of the foregoing. The upshot (whatever the causes…and I have heard a few stories) was that the marriage foundered after only a year (including a few months in LA) and Lewis returned to the UK in 2014 with his tail between his legs.

By the following year, Lewis had joined the well-known London law firm, Seddons, as a partner (salaried “partner”, not equity partner). At the time, I was surprised that Seddons had taken him on, but there it is. He left in 2018, just as it became known that he was coming up for “trial” in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal (where he was found guilty on all charges). Seddons’ statement was that Lewis had resigned as a partner because of his upcoming “aliyah” (emigration) to Israel (he is now an Israeli citizen).

Lewis’s second ex-wife, Caroline Feraday, stayed on in LA, did some amateur comedy appearances there and a few 2-minute reports about the Oscars etc for the British local TV news show, BBC South-East Today (cheaper than actually sending someone, I suppose), and eventually had a child in 2017 by another man.

Lewis is now an Israeli citizen and resident (he has or had a flat there). He is not now a partner or employee of any law firm in the UK and has stated that he will not seek admission to whatever Bar may exist in Israel. He has a degenerative progressive medical condition and is, apparently, on medication.

[note: much material about Lewis, including some newspaper coverage, has mysteriously disappeared from the Internet, or at least from Google searches]

Lewis is pretty much washed up in every way now.

The Slide of the English Bar and UK Society Continues and Accelerates

When I started to blog, I intended to write about things of general or objective importance. I intended to avoid the personal and subjective. Above all, I wished to avoid mixing the objective and the subjective. However, I think that some of my personal reminiscences and thoughts might be of interest to others. I also consider that objective conclusions can be drawn about UK society from some of my experiences.

Many of those who are reading this will be aware that I was disbarred in late 2016. That happened after a group of Jew-Zionists calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel” (some of whom, probably many, also belong to the so-called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”) made official complaint (in 2014) about a number (at first, several dozen) of tweets which I had posted on Twitter. Eventually, the number of tweets comprising the subject-matter of the charge was reduced to seven. Seven (7) tweets (reduced to 5 at Tribunal) out of, at the time, at least 150,000.

Now, though I may blog in detail about the manifold injustices around my own case at a later date, my purpose today is to compare the overall “justice” I received with that meted out to another Bar defaulter recently, in order to illustrate wider points.

Now the bare bones of my own situation were that:

  • I ceased Bar practice in 2008 and last appeared in court in December 2007;
  • I did not hold a Practice Certificate after 2008;
  • I joined Twitter in 2010 and started to tweet in 2011 or 2012;
  • My Twitter profile and picture never made any reference to my being or having been a barrister (whether practising, non-practising or employed);
  • Only a tiny handful of the 155,000-200,000 tweets I had posted made any mention of the fact that I had, years before, been a practising barrister; none of the supposedly “offensive” tweets did so;
  • The tweets I posted (whether complained of or not) were all posted as part of my “personal or private life”, I having had no professional life after 2008 anyway.

It should be said (without getting too technical) that the Bar Code of Conduct was once a slim volume but has expanded into a fairly lengthy and complex code. Suffice to say that the now-usual “race and religion”, “diversity” etc stuff is now included (and I think that we can be sure what kind of persons drafted those clauses…).

In the past, a barrister’s private life was not justiciable under the Code except in a few carefully-drawn exceptions, the main one being where a barrister had been convicted of a (serious) criminal offence (parking, speeding etc excluded). The new Code, in force for a number of years, kept those boundaries but, crucially, made them advisory only, taking away the cast-iron defence that whatever was complained of had been done in the course of the barrister’s personal or private life.

At the same time, the old and sensible distinction between barristers who are in practice, or who are employed as barristers, as against those not practising, or not employed as barristers, was removed in relation to “Core Duty 5”, i.e. in effect “bringing the Bar into disrepute”.

In short, I was, in effect, “bringing the Bar into disrepute”, or so decided a Bar Tribunal panel of 5 chaired by a retired Circuit judge, when (6+ years AFTER having given up Bar practice) I tweeted the seven *reduced at Tribunal to five) “offensive” tweets (on my Twitter account that made no mention in its profile etc that I had ever been a barrister).

I should say that the presiding judge made the point in his summation and sentencing that I had had an unblemished record at the Bar throughout the years since I was Called in 1991.

Other barristers had and have Twitter accounts. Some post obscene comments, such as the “lady” QC whose every sentence contained a swear word. Many have pictures of themselves in wig and gown, or advertise their practices via website links etc (which is now OK but would have been a serious Bar offence only 20 years or so ago). None of those who have used obscene language etc (including telling people to “fuck off” etc) has ever been hauled before a Bar Tribunal, despite their proclaiming their professional status, despite having photos of themselves in Bar clothing in some cases, despite their being in practice at the Bar and talking about it and the law constantly. The presiding judge at my 5-person Tribunal called my case “unprecedented”.

There are so many examples today of barristers doing things which would have meant disbarment decades ago but which are now laughed at and even applauded. We see, for example, the Jewish barrister known to the public as “Judge Rinder” (not in fact any kind of judge) on TV, the show aping that of (also Jewish) “Judge Judy” in the USA. The barrister who plays the role of “Judge Rinder” is acting entirely within the ambit of what is now tolerated by the Bar regulators, but one could not imagine such a show on TV in, say, 1967 or even 1987.

That is even leaving aside the vulgar advertizing and self-promotion undertaken by members of the Bar in practice. That was not permitted until the 1990s. The following example of a Bar defaulter was also one of the most shameless self-promoters.

Now let us look at how the Bar treated so-called “celebrity barrister” Henry Hendron, who, despite being a horrible little bastard –from what I have heard on radio and read in newspapers (I have never met him, admittedly)–, was treated very leniently by the Bar Tribunal, certainly as contrasted with my case.

Hendron supplied so-called “chemsex” drugs, apparently used in gay orgies, to his 18-y-o foreign boyfriend, who died as a result.

Hendron was ALSO found guilty, on his own admission, of failing to administer properly his chambers (which he headed as Head of Chambers) and in respect of that was fined £2,000, a trivial sum for someone who made hundreds of thousands of pounds in a year.

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-suspended-for-three-years-following-criminal-convictions-for-supplying-illegal-drugs/

So the Bar Standards Board and a Bar Tribunal think that a barrister and indeed head of chambers who was convicted at the Central Criminal Court of supplying illegal drugs for immoral purposes, and that supply having resulted in death (within the Temple itself at that!) AND failing to run his chambers properly should get suspended from practice for three years (in fact only two, because time was ruled to run from 2016!) and get a modest fine, whereas I, “found guilty” of having tweeted five (reduced at hearing from seven charged) supposedly “offensive” tweets about Jews, and not a practising or employed barrister at all, had to be disbarred! You really could not make it up.

This is what the Bar Standards Board official , Sara Jagger, Director of Professional Conduct, said about the Hendron case:

“A conviction for supplying illegal drugs is a serious matter. In this case, it had tragic consequences. Mr Hendron failed to meet one of the core duties of a barrister, which is to uphold public trust and confidence. The suspension imposed by the tribunal reflects this.”

This is what the same woman said about my case:

“The use of such offensive language is incompatible with the standards expected of barristers. The Tribunal rightly found that such behaviour diminishes the trust and confidence the public places in the profession and the decision to disbar Mr Millard reflects this.”

The Board’s press statement (still on its website today) also repeated the lie that my Twitter account “made it clear that” I was a barrister. An out and out lie.

Who, I wonder, would the public think less properly able to reflect the standards expected of a barrister? A snivelling, drug-taking degenerate, convicted of illegal drug supply resulting in death, and who also ran his chambers improperly, OR someone who, as part of his non-professional life and indeed post-professional life, posted seven supposedly “offensive” tweets (taking them as described by the Bar Tribunal)?

You decide.

Postscriptum: The BBC Radio 4 “PM” programme interviewed Henry Hendron in a very sympathetic way recently; the popular Press handled the story with a relatively light touch. Contrast that with the day or three of msm storm around my case last year! We can see the way society is going: downhill, fast.

Update, 26 January 2019

Now he is or has been selling “legal packages”! Perhaps he could set up a stall or barrow in one of the London street markets? Is the Bar Standards Board OK with this? Is the Bar itself OK with this?! I begin to think that the whole bloody system should be chucked into the mire…

https://www.legalcheek.com/2018/05/suspended-chemsex-barrister-sells-4000-legal-advice-for-life-on-facebook/

And what is one to make of this? He now intends to sail around the world! Hello sailor! He even has the cheek to solicit donations from the public! As for his hypocrisy, in pretending to be a “victim” of “unequal justice” when he has been treated so incredibly leniently compared to me (read the blog article, above!), words fail me…(his crowdfunding page from August 2018 raised….just £40. Seems that the public are not so stupid after all). [Update, June 2019: Hendron has now deleted all his blog posts about sailing around the world with a bumboy etc and seems to be intending to use his website to flog more “legal services”]

https://henryhendron.com/

According to the blog below, he set off in August 2018, not knowing how to sail, and had to be rescued by the Coastguard the same day…then set off again a day later…The blog writer wants him to give up his “suicidal” journey. Seems that Hendron has one friend, anyway. [see above update, however]

https://www.russelldawkinsbackontrack.co.uk/my-mates/

In fact, it seems that he survived at least until 4 September 2018 (see his blog, below). What appals me about it is the poor grammar, spelling, use of English generally. That such a person was not only treated better than me by the Bar “regulators”, but was at the Bar at all, makes me fume (almost literally). Incidentally, and as of September last year, he had managed to get as far round the globe as Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, having started off in…the Isle of Wight or the nearby Hampshire coast.

https://henryhendron.com/author/hhendron/

[see update above]

I have to wonder, looking at his obviously disordered mind and his poor use of the English language, whether there really are mugs stupid enough to want to retain him on any basis. He asks for £600 an hour. Apparently, in the past his services were utilized by Nadine Dorries MP! Comedy gold.

Ah, seems that Hendron is no longer sailing around the world, unless his navigation is up the creek (literally)…he’s in Romania! https://twitter.com/henryhendron/status/1079764170…

[again, please refer to update, above]

or was, as of New Year’s Eve. Listening to him, I have to admit that I start to feel sorry for him, so pathetic is he. Compassion is my weakness, often.

A Few Stray Bits of News

a dissatisfied client of Hendron having his or her say… 

Update, 15 March 2019

Now he is on Question Time! (ironically, I agree with most of what he is saying!)

Update, 10 May 2019

Just noticed this (see below). Made me laugh that a young (?) lady calling herself @pussycatt1984 tweeted that she wanted to have the babies of “pink jumper man”. She might be disappointed…

Update, 21 July 2019

The online legal news site, Legal Cheek, reports on Henry Hendron’s return to Bar practice, presumably operating from home or his boat (if he still has it):

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/06/henry-hendron-returns-to-practice-three-years-after-drug-conviction/#.XQZ78yEYw-k.twitter

Another barrister does not sound very thrilled at the news (or at Hendron being described in a “newspaper” as “QC”!)…

Quite. Rather a shame, though, that Cherrett apparently does not know the difference between “practise” (as in “to practise”) and “practice” (as in “his practice is criminal”). Still, I suppose that one could be broadminded or charitable and say that, in the USA, the words are reversed…I should not want to be too much of what some call “a grammar nazi”…Oh, fuck it! Why not?! I am sick and tired of semi-educated or narrowly-educated people at the Bar (especially..) and elsewhere in good positions in this sliding country! The Bar, journalism, msm generally, Westminster.

In fact, reverting to Hendron, I was just reading a few of his recent tweets. He is at least not too bad from the political point of view:

and he seems to be an animal lover, so not all bad in that respect either, having retweeted this:

Update, 30 July 2019

Seems that Hendron has yet again been suspended from Bar practice, though only for 3 months:

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/chemsex-barrister-suspended-again-by-tribunal/5071174.article

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/07/henry-hendron-suspended-again/

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-ordered-to-be-suspended-from-practice/

So Hendron

  • supplied illegal drugs to his foreign teenage boyfriend;
  • as a result of which the boy died;
  • at a “chemsex” orgy held
  • within the precincts of the Temple in London;
  • as a result of which Hedron and others were convicted and sentenced
  • at the Old Bailey

and

  • also found guilty at Bar Disciplinary Tribunal of failing to run his Chambers (of which he was Head) properly

and now also has been found guilty by a BDT of

  • failing to pay a lay client monies
  • despite having been ordered to by the Legal Ombudsman

but instead of being disbarred, has once again been only suspended. He must really have some good contacts in the Bar establishment! Or does he “know too much”?

Still, he only did what is chronicled above (oh, and sold so-called “legal packages” to the public from a metaphorical barrow), all of which have been in the newspapers. It is not as if Hendron did something really bad, like tweeting a few critical remarks about Jews…

I was looking at a few of Hendron’s tweets from 2016 and 2017. Only semi-literate. Does he claim to have dyslexia or something? No wonder that the Bar has lost most of the prestige it had half a century ago. It is just a multikulti dustbin now.

Update, 2 September 2019

Jew-Zionist hypocrite Simon Myerson Q.C. belongs to both main organizations that have persecuted me, “UK Lawyers for Israel” and “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism” [“CAA”]. Now he is playing the Jewish “victim” because others are trying to get him disbarred for his tweets etc…Ha ha! What goes around comes around.

It must be yet another case of “anti-Semitism”!…Another Jew hypocrite. Myerson was one of those who conspired to have me expelled from the Bar, and he has been both snooping on me and trolling me on Twitter for a decade.

Ha ha!

Update, 25 October 2019

“They” are still mentioning me online, really getting “full value”…

Update, 5 January 2021

Henry Hendron wins appeal against second suspension

Mr Justice Fordham wrote: “[T]he BSB’s position is that a barrister whose practising certificate has been suspended is not a ‘BSB regulated person’”, adding that “I have heard no argument and seen no analysis to the contrary.

The judge praised the BSB and its barrister, Zoe Gannon, for telling him about the “suspended-barrister problem” even though it cost them the case. Hendron himself “had not identified it or relied on it in his grounds of appeal”.

Hendron himself had not identified it…“, Well, it is well known that “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client“. I would not want his barrister to represent me, though! Semi-literate, and unable to identify legal issues, as well as morally suspect in various ways.

I should remind myself and my blog readers that the purpose here is not to attack Hendron but to show up the Bar itself, and to highlight the injustice to which I was subject.

I saw a few tweets from Hendron:

The “Crime Bar“?! As I said, semi-literate…

More?

I don’t care if he does claim “dyslexia”; if so, he should never have become a barrister.

As for this, what is one to make of it?

Your“? (Should be “you’re” or “you are“, of course). Calls his chambers his “office”, and seems to be in a position to pay someone up to £60,000 p.a.! Not sure that I believe a word that he says, though.

An older tweet, from 2011:

The Petersham Hotel? All human life must have been there! I certainly have been, though in the 1980s. “SS Headquarters Normandie”, as my friends and I used to call it! https://www.petershamhotel.co.uk/. Used to be a good place for a quiet drink.

Update, 3 February 2021

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9220171/Barrister-40-tells-misconduct-hearing-charges-against-rubbish.html

Looks like Hendron has finally run out of road. Not that I was ever personally hostile to him; I have never met him, and indeed only heard of him after the scandal involving his “drugs and sex” activities came to light in the Press a few years ago. My aim in the blog was to compare his very lenient treatment by the Bar with the totalitarian repression that bore down on me because I said (on Twitter) a few supposedly “offensive” things about Jews.
