Channel 4 Dispatches/”Hope not Hate” film

I understand that the basically Jewish “antifascist” org, misnamed “Hope not Hate” recently joined with Channel 4 Dispatches [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispatches_(TV_programme)] to make a filmed report on Patriotic Alternative: see below

I did not see the report. In the past I have seen several such “exposures” of the social-national side of British politics, both on TV and in the Press (“Lugenpresse”/”Judenpresse”), starting in the 1970s. Such reports have been on various groups or individuals: National Front, League of St. George, British Movement, British National Party, the London Forum etc. Such reports tend to be much of a muchness.

A few years ago, I think in 2017 or 2018, the Jewish “antifascist” “Hope not Hate” crowd cobbled together a similar film about the London Forum. I said at the time that it would sink without trace. It did. I believe that it was shown on late-night TV (again on Channel 4, and with an audience of two men and a dog) late at night, and later also broadcast in Belgium or the Netherlands and (I think) Sweden.

The Jew-Zionist-controlled “antifascist” cabals make a shrill noise about such “exposes” every time, briefly, before the films disappear down a black hole.

How big is the Channel 4 Dispatches audience? I cannot say, exactly. Not large, anyway.

I have just seen a review of said Dispatches report, written by a UKIP activist (apparently they still exist, though only seen rarely, like a coelacanth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coelacanth.)

This is that online review: https://www.ukip.org/review-dispatches-the-enemy-within

The only Dispatches report I myself remember seeing was this one:

I have heard nothing about whether the imprisoned satirist and singer-songwriter has been released on bail pending appeal; I think she has not. In the meantime, she is now on the 28th day of 77 days of incarceration. In other words, she is now well over the one-third mark of her sentence.

Naturally, those who bought in to the facemask nonsense will feel aggrieved or betrayed, the stupid saps. I saw an old-ish woman in Waitrose only yesterday, still wearing her muzzle.

Embarrassed” seems a mild term…

Just another virtue-signalling hypocrite who should be punished.

The presenter should have opposed “Femi” because he is anti-white-European, not because he is “racist” (whether he is or not).

The sickness in our society comes out, inter alia, in the constant pushing onto TV and radio of this useless “Femi” person. He is as thick as two short planks, for a start, and is only on the msm because the System is desperate to find blacks who can string more than a few words together. An eternal student type, who fronted a failed, EU-funded, anti-Brexit campaign for a year, several years ago now (around 2015), and now resides in the attic of his affluent Nigerian parents’ house (they being NHS doctors). At the age of 32-33, that is his entire CV, or 99% of it.

The “Femi” individual has nothing to contribute to this or any other European country. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole (yes, that waste of space has a Wikipedia entry…).

Why are there no British groups or organizations doing that or something like that, for struggling British families? Or are there, but not publicized?

Add “Femi” to the list (in an ideal world…).

Channel 4 “wokester”, undercover, in other words a spy, gets taught a lesson when “antifa” thugs ambush him and a couple of British nationalists (on whom he is spying). In the USA, the “antifa” swine would just be shot down, of course…

It occurs to me that if (as I am told) one of the Channel 4 (or other) producers tipped off the “antifa” idiots, and so (by that deliberate and/or negligent act) caused the undercover reporter/spy to be injured, then said spy might have a case in negligence against the said producer and/or his/her employer… What fun.

Southend West by-election result

Hardly worth blogging about the result of the Southend West result but, for the record, the Conservative Party candidate won as expected, and with 86.1% of the vote, though on a pathetic turnout of 24%, and without the other main System parties standing: Labour, LibDem, and also Greens, absented themselves from the contest.

All other candidates lost their deposits. The second-placed was some character who wants drug decriminalization, and called himself the Psychedelic Party. His vote-share was 3.4%.

As for the “nationalist” candidates, Steve Laws (UKIP)— 2.7%; Catherine Blaiklock (English Democrats)— 2.2%; Jayda Fransen— 2%. Bearing in mind that this was the ideal chance to pick up protest votes, pretty unimpressive.

The real “protest vote” was the fact that 76% of those eligible to vote abstained. In fact, the abstainers together with those who voted for candidates other than the Con candidate comprised over 90% of those eligible to vote in the by-election.

Hardly “democracy’s” finest hour.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Southend_West_by-election#Results

Other thoughts arising: as noted previously, that England does not have any credible social-national or even conservative-nationalist party, and that, that being so, the voters treat the underwhelming candidates that do exist (and stand in elections) with, not even contempt, but indifference.

As I blogged a day or two ago, unlikely but not impossible.

A puzzle. Reach for the sky!

Inflation

When the present UK government started to throw money at the “panicdemic”, paying millions to stay home, paying businesses which otherwise might go into insolvency, the msm “experts” all applauded Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak and, of course, Boris-idiot. A few voices worried about the inflationary effects, but they were treated as near idiots. Peter Hitchens was one of the few inthe ranks of msm scribblers.

Almost everyone seemed to think that the “furlough” holiday season was cost-free. Now look. True, energy prices are from another direction, but the rest can be laid at the door of the effective devaluation of the currency. Now we read that inflation may reach 7%! A couple of years ago it was 2%.

Still think that all those furlough payments, “eat out to help out”, and business support schemes came at no cost? If you do, what can I say or suggest? That you should stand outside your house and clap until told to stop?

Historical discovery

Chaos at Downing Street

What interests me about the latest nonsense around Boris-idiot is that, as the “advisers” depart, how few are English, or even really British. Just as in the Cabinet. I note the names: Rosenfield, Narozanski, Mirza…

Clever of the Russian Government to focus on the weakest point of the present UK Govt., i.e. competence or, more pointedly, incompetence.

If so, Moscow must have changed much since I was last there. On my (only two) visits there (1993 and 2007), the same thought occurred to me: Moscow is not a comfortable or convenient city. It is not even a question of money spent; whether you pay out plenty or not, everything conspires to make you feel dissatisfied.

As a matter of fact, I found it easier to get by there, on a daily basis, in 1993, than on a later fairly brief visit in 2007.

The post-1945 order in Europe fell to pieces after 1989. Russia now has the chance to reset the post-1989 agenda, but that means, inter alia, seizing Eastern Ukraine, Kiev, and the Black Sea littoral. So far, the tanks have not started to roll. It is now —within the next weeks— or never, probably.

“There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

[Shakespeare, Julius Caesar]

Literary note:

Brutus and Cassius are discussing the final phase of their civil war with the forces of Octavian and Marcus Antonius. Cassius has been urging that they group their forces at Sardis and take advantage of the secure location to catch their breath. Brutus, however, advocates heading off the enemy at Philippi before Octavian can recruit more men. Brutus’s main point is that, since “the enemy increaseth every day” and “We, at the height, are ready to decline” (lines 216–217), he and Cassius must act now while the ratio of forces is most advantageous. “There’s a tide in the affairs of men,” he insists; that is, power is a force that ebbs and flows in time, and one must “go with the flow.” Waiting around only allows your power to pass its crest and begin to ebb; if the opportunity is “omitted” (missed), you’ll find yourself stranded in miserable shallows.” [Shakespeare Quotes]

Russia today is not the old Soviet Union, with its worldwide hegemonic aims, and its Marxist-Leninist ideology; it is basically defensive. However, a basically defensive strategy can include specific offensive capabilities and operations. The point is that the “West”, particularly Western Europe, and Central Europe, has nothing to fear from Russia unless Russia is attacked or provoked too far.

The “panicdemic, together with its absurd “laws”, “rules” and “guidance”, has exposed, brutally, the level of psychopathology in large parts of the population. In various ways. Those who fear, not “the virus”, at root, but everything outside their own circle. The obsessive and pointless mask-wearing is one example. Another is the alacrity seen in those suddenly given petty power to tell others to wear a facemask, wear it differently or better, stay x-feet away from other shoppers (or from the said obsessive), and so on.

“The virus” has also exposed what little real respect most people now have for civil liberties, or even logic. So it was that the people —many, perhaps most, of them— accepted the ludicrous “Rule of Six” made up by the part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and liar posing as Prime Minister.

Doubt about the official narrative has grown, but only slowly, and it may be that the System overplayed its hand, in that the conspiratorial “SAGE” committee (I used to call it “DUMB”— the “Department Under Matt and Boris”) heralded the “Omicron variant” as something likely to kill hundreds of thousands.

Well, now, only weeks after the latest alarmist predictions of the egregious Professor Ferguson and his cohorts, we see that “Omicron” is killing almost no-one, despite the frenzied testing and consequent announcement of millions of “cases”.

The public is waking up, though seems to have little real anger about having been played for two years. The System has spun it as “the measures taken mean that —if we keep “vaccinating”— we can live with Covid“. That spin or gloss pats on the back SAGE, the No.10 chancer, the government as a whole, and the poor saps otherwise known as The Great British Public…

Thus the Government (weakly opposed by the “we can run workhouses better” fake Opposition) can remove the various restrictions without having to admit to having got it wrong for 2 years, and without having to impliedly admit that the “panicdemic” was also —largely, not entirely— a “scamdemic”, and the measures taken for other reasons.

Southend West by-election

I have already blogged briefly about the upcoming by-election at Southend West, set down for 3 February 2022: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/13/diary-blog-13-january-2022/.

Seems that the latest news is that canvassers for the Conservative Party have been met with “a wall of disapproval” never previously encountered. That may mean a very low turnout as people “vote with their feet”. They cannot vote for any credible alternative because they have been denied that option.

The System parties have decided that, as with the Jo Cox assassination, the David Amess incident must be marked by the voters being denied a proper choice at the by-election, leaving standing only the “Conservative” Party candidate and a ragbag of small and/or joke parties and independents.

It will be interesting to see what proportion of the vote will go to Steve Laws (UKIP), who is somewhat known, by reason of his monitoring of, and tweeting about, the cross-Channel migration-invasion. He seems to be the front runner after the “Conservative” woman, though Catherine Blaiklock (English Democrats) may get quite a few votes.

I doubt whether Jayda Fransen (standing as Independent) will do well, but perhaps the Southend West voters will confound me.

Southend is not an area I know. I have been there, though only for an hour or so, and long ago, in 1977 or 1978.

I had returned from a youthful misadventure in Rhodesia, aged 20-21, and had signed up for a temporary job doing various kinds of casual work. One such, for a few days, was travelling around London delivering booze to various places as the driver’s mate, hauling crates around.

I remember that one destination was Pentonville Prison (for the guards), a cavalry barracks in Hounslow (the Sergeant’s Mess), and a bingo hall in some concrete town in Essex (Basildon? I forget now). Also, to what was either the Conservative Club, or the Naval and Military Club, Southend-on-Sea.

I remember that the Club to which we delivered was on a kind of bluff or clifftop overlooking the sea. There was a greensward between the Club and the clifftop. A tree growing there too (a monkeypuzzle tree? Or is that my memory inventing something?).

The sun was just setting over the sea, and that, together with the Union Jack on a flagpole, rendered the scene somehow elegiac. The Evening Hymn and Last Post might have been fitting.

Looking now at Google Maps and Google Earth, I think that that club was “Naval and Military” rather than “Conservative”. The latter seems to have been in a less pleasant setting in the middle of the town, and to have closed permanently a few years ago, a function of the declining membership of the Conservative Party: https://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/16385600.southend-conservative-club-close-doors-final-time/.

I remember the day mentioned partly because, having launched a crate of Scotch down a wooden chute to the cellar from the street, it had unfortunately slid down far too fast, and right into the gammy leg of the steward, who let out a few oaths that were certainly blue, and possibly naval, though not necessarily Conservative.

Thanks to the incredible resources now available via Google, Google Earth etc, I have just tracked down the place: Naval and Military Club, 20 Royal Terrace, Southend-on-Sea.

[Naval and Military Club, Southend-on-Sea]

Still going, it seems.

I have just been looking at some photos of Southend. Not terribly pleasant-looking overall. In a way surprising that it is a Conservative Party stronghold.

In fact, that seems not as clearcut as the election results for Southend West and other other local constituency (Rochford and Southend East) would suggest. Quite a high level of poverty, and the Southend local council is a non-Conservative minority-coalition administration, with little more than a third of all councillors Conservatives (20 out of 51).

The well-known anti-poverty campaigner and creator of recipes made on a shoestring, “Jack” Monroe, aka “the Bootstrap Cook”, is from Southend: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Monroe.

I notice that the local newspaper report on the closure of the Conservative Club in 2018 reported that Southend “is not safe at night“…

BBC “News”

This morning, watched, for the first time in a while, a whole half-hour of BBC TV news. Of the 30 minutes, about 20 mins was given over to the idiot posing as Prime Minister, and as to whether he broke his own ludicrous “Covid” “rules” or “laws”. Then we had 5 minutes about Ukraine and the possibility of invasion by Russian forces. A strange disproportion, to my mind: 20 mins about the idiot at Downing Street, and his cake and wine, but only 5 mins about the possibility (I would think probability) of (more) war in Ukraine.

The remaining 5 mins was mostly the weather report and forecast, the most accurate part of the whole broadcast.

The bit about Ukraine was mostly devoted to someone called James Nixey, an expert from the Chatham House think tank formerly (and surely better-) called the Royal Institute of International Affairs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham_House].

I have little quarrel with what the said Nixey had to say, though it did not tell me anything that I did not already know (but then the news broadcasts are supposedly for the population as a whole).

I noticed that Nixey had on the bookshelves behind him (at his home, apparently, at Pangbourne) a couple of books which I myself have; I saw one about George Blake. https://www.chathamhouse.org/about-us/our-people/james-nixey; https://uk.linkedin.com/in/james-nixey-3621a710.

If true, it is one of the (very few) things “Boris” has done of which I approve wholeheartedly. Why lie about it? I would rather those innocent animals be rescued than many of the Afghans, some of whom hate us or despise us, and none of whom will ever be anything but a nuisance to us (at best). If “Madame Boris” (Carrie Johnson) got him to do it, well, never mind. It is the sort of thing a “first lady” should do— exercise compassionate influence.

Personal sanctions may be inconvenient to Putin (and those close to him) but they will not change his intent for a second. What is happening now around Ukraine is not the impetuous policy-on-the-hoof of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and Nicholas Sarkozy, when they stupidly decided to help the Libyan rebels in 2012. This is a long-considered and carefully worked-out plan by Putin, the Russian General Staff or Stavka, and the intelligence services, especially the GRU.

Putin and others see the Ukraine situation in the light of the 1100 years of conjoined close connection between Russia and Ukraine more than the 30 years of shambolic Ukrainian independence. They see it as a matter of territorial integrity (of the Slavonic heartlands), and also as a matter of existential national survival; they want a dead stop to NATO installing advanced weapons in Ukraine (and Poland, and the Baltic states).

What now? I myself would expect, as blogged recently, there to be an invasion at least of the Eastern part of Ukraine, and probably Kiev area too. I would expect the Spetsnaz forces of the Stavka, perhaps partly undercover, to create chaos in Kiev and some other key cities and non-urban locations first, before tanks roll in. and before the skies are full of descending parachutes.

I doubt that Russian forces plan to occupy anywhere much west of the Dnieper. Putin would rather install a pro-Russian Ukrainian government in Kiev, which would at least try to control the western part of Ukraine, while allowing the eastern part to exercise (pro-Russian) near-autonomy.

Russia gains little or nothing by delay. Every day that passes now makes a potential invasion or “incursion” slightly more difficult for Russian forces.

The Soviet Union always had awesome capabilities for swift mass deployment of forces (eg in Afghanistan), especially by air, and Russia’s newly-upgraded forces still have that, as far as I can see. The main reason that Russia did not simply invade a week or more ago was probably that Putin needed to “condition” the European states and the USA to the idea of Russian incursion, so as to obviate a sudden “Cuban Missile Crisis” situation developing.

Now, Putin can be sure that all that the NATO core states (really just USA and UK) will do is to impose blah-blah “sanctions” on Russia and its leaders. No attempt at direct military parrying. Biden has said as much. As for “Boris”, he is just a spectator, really.

Putin would probably prefer to “win without war”, in the famous phrase of Sun-Tzu, but it seems doubtful that the Kiev government will give him what he wants (though the Kiev leaders do seem to be disenchanted with the USA’s lukewarm support, so there is a slight possibility).

As said previously, I doubt that Russian forces would invade, or need to invade, more than a few miles west of Kiev. Mostly in the eastern part of the country, where there are several million ethnic-Russian civilians living.

Also, Russia will try to work psychologically on the Ukrainian population, mainly in Kiev and east of the Dnieper. Anxiety, maybe panic etc. If unexpected sabotage etc takes place, the countdown has begun.

I would expect the storm to break, if it does, within a week or so of today.

Britain, where nuts are treated as serious protesters

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10395493/Hammer-wielding-activist-scales-BBCs-Broadcasting-House-starts-destroying-Eric-Gill-sculpture.html

This is what Britain has become; it has descended into a place where any nut with a hammer and a narrow view of history can destroy a statue, a painting, a mural, or some other artwork, while the politically-correct and hugely-ignorant police stand around doing nothing, and as other ignorant persons applaud the vandalism online or otherwise.

As for the nut himself in this case, some cigarette-smoking “chav” type, he apparently shouted out to passers-by, including women, who were telling him to stop vandalizing, that they were “paedos”. What can one say?

Eric Gill [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Gill] certainly was perverse, but so have been many other artists of note. Gill’s art is not 100% to my taste either, but that does not necessarily mean that it can just be destroyed by the first idiot that turns up with a hammer and a contrived grievance.

Society is built on order. There are worrying signs in the UK that disorder is slowly taking over, and I am not talking only about idiots vandalizing statues or artworks.

Upcoming Southend West by-election

It is not worthwhile blogging about the upcoming Southend West by-election in any great detail, because the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties are boycotting the event out of “respect” for the assassinated MP whose death triggered the by-election. That means that, as with the by-election at Batley and Spen held some years ago after the Jo Cox assassination, the voters of Southend will be denied the array of choice (however false) that they would usually have.

Not even Green Party and Reform UK (the latest Farage vehicle) will be standing candidates.

Wikipedia has opened a page about the by-election, which is set down for 3 February 2022: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Southend_West_by-election.

As can be seen on Wikipedia, a number of minor candidates are standing. Two of at least passing interest are Steve Laws (UKIP), well-known for his reportage tweeting about the continuing cross-Channel migration-invasion, and Jayda Fransen (standing as Independent, but formerly a member of two or three parties).

I have blogged about Jayda Fransen in the past: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/09/11/diary-blog-11-september-2020-including-a-few-notes-about-jayda-fransen-and-her-new-british-freedom-party/.

Southend West has been held by the Conservative Party since its creation in 1950, the Con vote peaking the following year at 69.1%.

The MP elected in 1950, 1951 and 1955 was the very wealthy Anglo-American, Henry “Chips” Channon, famous for his indiscreet diaries [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Channon]. His rather mediocre son, Paul Channon, “inherited” the seat and was elected in a by-election in 1959, holding the seat thereafter until 1992, when David Amess was elected on a vote-share of 38.8% (LibDems second on 33.1%). In every subsequent election, Amess’s vote never dipped below 46%.

In 2019, Amess was elected with a solid 59.2% of the vote (Labour second on 28.1%; LibDems third with 11.4%).

In the by-election, The Conservative Party candidate, one Anna Firth, a barrister and Sevenoaks District Council councillor [https://www.linkedin.com/in/anna-firth-095271202/], has tried to reach the House of Commons on two previous occasions. Looks like it will be “third time lucky” for her.

I could not see Anna Firth’s name on the chambers’ website for the set with which Ms. Firth is supposedly connected (Hailsham Chambers), so it looks as though she is no longer there. The Daily Mail and Linked-In also mention her as CEO of an “e-learning” organization (some kind of taxpayer-funded “social enterprise”, it appears), so maybe she is no longer in active practice at the Bar at all: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10299379/Conservatives-select-candidate-Southend-West-election.html.

There is minor interest around this by-election, in seeing firstly what vote-share Ms. Firth will get, in the absence of any real competition; also, as to the number of protest votes going to UKIP’s Steve Laws and to Jayda Fransen. Steve Laws may do better than Ms. Fransen; we shall see.

The German Reich and the Soviet Union fought and died, the Reich quickly in 1945, the Soviet Union slowly over decades. It was a fated and fateful encounter. There is today no reason, good or otherwise, for Europe, including Eastern Europe, to exhaust itself in terror and bloodshed.

Very picturesque, even if the music (by Shostakovitch) added for the amateur YouTube video is anachronistic (I think that the film itself is from the famous 1960s War and Peace).

It would be a fatal error to imagine that that could not happen. All serious wargames since 1960 that postulated use of tactical nuclear weapons have ended up with strategic nuclear weapons being used.

What would that mean in the UK? First, sudden and deadly Spetsnaz attacks by lethal special forces units on ground targets in this country— early-warning stations, ports, air bases, transport infrastructure, Internet infrastructure, and on heads of state and government. Then nuclear attacks on the same, if still in one piece.

Russia is about 72x the area of the UK. Nuclear attacks on Russia by NATO (mainly USA) would cause undreamt-of destruction, but Russia would survive, and rebuild, even if it took a hundred years. Were the UK to be attacked with nuclear weapons, almost all of the country would be flattened. Britain might not survive in any recognizable form.

The whole idea of Britain joining the Americans in war with Russia is mad. Why do it? So that Jew oligarchs can continue to exploit Ukraine? So that Ukraine, which prior to 1991 was never an independent state, can keep its present borders, which contain —especially in the East— large numbers of Russians and pro-Russians? So that the New World Order can expand its power?

Britain, disastrously, went to war in 1914 and then in 1939, both times for no good reason. Not again, I hope.

Steve Laws is standing in the Southend West by-election on 3 February 2022. I would normally not recommend a vote for UKIP, but in the absence of any real social-national candidate, Laws deserves at least a protest vote, if anyone there is going to vote at all.

The mask zealots are truly insane and/or brainwashed. I had to argue, briefly, with a cheeky Ch… I mean Chinese… student in Waitrose in mid-2020. Told the interfering little alien to get lost.

No…

(((They))) truly are “the simulacrum of the human“…

Telling…The people do not want either main System party “leader” as Prime Minister. The people really want social-nationalism, but they themselves do not even know it, because the repression on free speech, and the lies of the ZOG/NWO msm, have them completely confused.

On that modelling, Labour would need support from both the SNP and the LibDems to form even a working minority government; the Conservative Party would in theory be able to govern with SNP support. However, the price of that would be, at the least, another Scottish Independence referendum.

Writing as advocatus diabolus, I suppose that the Conservative Party could buy the SNP by offering actual Independence without a referendum, but that might cause a political explosion north of the border, where about half of the Scottish voters are opposed to, or at least not in favour of, “independence” (independence from the UK/England, but not necesssarily from the international finance system, NWO/ZOG, NATO etc…).

Still, continuing in the cynical vein, and as I have blogged before, if Scotland were “independent” (from the UK), that would pretty much kill off Labour as a party of (“rump UK” or England/Wales) government. Once you take out the 48 SNP MPs and the one Labour MP from the Commons, as well as the 4 LibDems and 6 Conservatives, it becomes clear that Labour would never be able to form even a minority government, unless there were some kind of “peaceful revolution” in England. On the above modelling, Con 289, Lab 264, LibDem 7. (plus other parties).

I may make a more exact “year ago” posting a feature on the blog. Here is my offering from exactly a year ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/11/27/diary-blog-27-november-2020/.

The Chase Celebrity Special

Saw an old (not sure how old) “celebrity” version of The Chase quiz show. Featured Jewish-Zionist zealot Rachel Riley, who seemed to be pretty ignorant, though not much worse than the others. She even got a very simple maths question wrong (actually not wrong, because she failed to answer). Ghastly former MP, Edwina Currie, was the only one to be knocked out before the end. Surprisingly, though, the remaining three won £66,000 for charity, so that was nice, anyway.

Those who watch TV quiz shows will know that the “celebrity” shows are invariably cringeworthy, and lead one to speculate why hugely well-paid celebrity faces are often so hugely ignorant. I have seen few such “celebrities” acquit themselves well. One of the few who did was studiedly foppish interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Llewelyn-Bowen]. I think that that was also on The Chase.

Keir Starmer

Heard part of an interview with Keir Starmer, conducted by Nick Robinson. Starmer’s first point, even before it was explored further by Robinson, was how he had done everything he could to stop “anti-Semitism” in Labour (I think that his pleasant phrase was “tear out“…).

Seems that Starmer’s only real interest is in bringing aid and comfort to the Jews, despite the fact that they are numerically few (250,000-300,000), and so relatively insignificant in electoral terms.

Starmer admitted that, at home, his family does celebrate Jewish customary holidays. Sadly, Nick Robinson was too polite to ask whether Starmer, on such occasions, wears the little skullcap (“yarmulka“) which I believe (rightly or not) is de rigueur.

Nick Robinson is himself at least half-Jewish: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Robinson_(journalist).

On radio (the interview was also shown on TV), Robinson’s intro mentioned the problem Starmer has with seeming credible to the public were he to appear, as Prime Minister, on the step of 10, Downing Street. I am scarcely favourable to Starmer but, surely, after Boris-idiot, almost anyone would be credible, or at least not seem worse?

Late tweets

I may listen later.

This is now descending into total madness (again). A “variant” of a virus that kills about 1 in every 1,000 in the UK (and 1 out of 4,000 in the world), and this stupid yet evil Cabinet of clowns is apparently going to mandate the facemask nonsense again! We are pretty much at war now, not with “Covid” but with this evil Con regime, its equally evil fake “Labour” supposed opposition, and with a transnational conspiracy with several (to use Biblical language) heads and/or horns.

So the police shut down mild heckling of “antifa”-type “useful idiots”? Reminds me of the Trafalgar Square disgrace which continued for years in the 1980s, with amplified yelling 24/7 outside the South African Embassy, while the police, on political orders, allowed it and in fact facilitated it.

System conspiracy.

Good grief! The gall and madness surprises even me! A consultant cardiologist is “fact-checked” by some bimbo with a “degree” in…wait for it… magazine journalism!

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

Direction of travel of the social-national movement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A very significant graph.

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

Boris-idiot speaks…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Conspiracy theory

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

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

Diary Blog, 23-24 August 2020

UKIP, Brexit Party etc are just “controlled opposition”

I happened to see the tweets below. The first are from Gerard Batten and Henry Bolton, two of the former leaders of whatever is left of UKIP.

The other tweeters seem to have both more logic and more commonsense than the two would-be “leaders”:

From Batten, complete lack of understanding that “race is the root-stock, culture is the flower“…

Look at this exchange:

What hope was there for UKIP, when its own former leaders are unsure whether, had they been born in Japan (eg in transit), or lived there, they would be Japanese? What a bunch of clowns!

Looks as though Batten needs to look at the Nuremberg Laws (the real ones, not the Jew-Zionist “edited highlights”…

UKIP is of course on a very different page vis a vis my own ideological basis. It never was social-national, and was never heavily attacked by the Jew element in the msm, a very bad sign (individual Jews tweeted etc against UKIP, but the core Zionist element was untroubled by it). UKIP was always given Press coverage, TV coverage; Farage the con-man extraordinaire was forever on Newsnight, Question Time, the TV news etc. Permitted opposition. Controlled opposition.

When UKIP was still a functioning party with a real chance of forming a small House of Commons bloc, I tweeted about it quite frequently. I am talking about between 2010-2015. After 2015, I understood that UKIP’s chance had gone (in fact, it peaked around 2014), cheated as it was by the UK’s pseudo-democratic electoral system: 12.6% of the national vote but only a small fraction of 1% of the MPs, in fact only 1 MP out of 650 (and he was a defected Conservative Party MP anyway).

I did blog a little about UKIP in the runup to the 2017 General Election. I knew that it would sink like a stone. The only reason that I now blog about it (for the first time in about a year) is because I saw those absurd Batten tweets. I was not going to blog today, but I can tack this bit about UKIP onto the start of tomorrow’s blog post.

UKIP has almost fallen into obscurity. Its not-bad 2015 General Election percentage (12.6%) fell to 1.8% in 2017, under the dim Paul Nuttall; that was the first decline in national vote-share that UKIP had ever suffered since its foundation. The 2019 General Election result was even worse: under the ludicrous Patricia Mountain, UKIP’s vote fell to 0.1%, i.e. one vote out of every thousand.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_United_Kingdom_general_election#Full_results

In fact, so obscure is UKIP now that I realize that I was scarcely aware of some of its leaders of recent years.

The tweet/reply below, by one Valerie Leppard, made me laugh (though at the same time despair at the naivety displayed):

Ms. Leppard makes much of the fact that human beings all have 99% similar DNA. That is true. In fact it is said to be considerably higher than 99% similarity. On the other hand, chimpanzees share 96% of their DNA with humans, cats share up to 90%, and even bananas share 60%! https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/human-dna-share-cats-cattle-mice-same-genetics-code-a8292111.html

How far do such facts take you? I was once a guest at a private tennis club in North London. I had gone out of politeness. Despite having played occasionally since childhood, I still scarcely know the rules or how to play properly; anyone who knows me knows that I am not very sport-oriented. I did once score a direct hit from some distance with a tennis ball, on the bottom of a Ukrainian lady who had stooped to pick up another ball, but that hardly counts!

That London tennis club was rather formal. You had to wear the right clothing etc; it also had a pleasant bar, from which one could watch people playing. I saw a doubles match and, to my untutored eye, they looked not much different from the professionals who play at Wimbledon. Of course they were different, and that is the point. There was a far greater gulf between my inept level of play and the doubles-players than there was between them and the Wimbledon champions.

Champions, or the top people in every category of activity, are ipso facto better than almost all others. However, they may not be much better than a mass, perhaps a vast mass, just below that championship level. It is that tiny amount of edge that makes the difference.

Applying that to races and, yes, in big-picture “scientific” terms the DNA of the Northern European is very very close to other peoples, and even to the most backward peoples. It is that tiny difference that, all the same, matters.

In your nothing I hope to find my everything“; “In deinem Nichts hoff ‘ ich, das All zu finden“[Goethe, Faust; Faust answering Mephistopheles, who has said that Faust’s belief is nothing].

Well, leaving such observations and reverting to the mundane world of UK politics as it is, and UKIP, I notice that even Wikipedia has found little to say of some of the post-Farage “leaders” of UKIP. In one case, that of someone called Wauchope, apparently (never heard of him), even the year of his birth is uncertain!

UKIP is said still to have 25,000 members, though I doubt that.

I see that one Freddy Vachha is now the “leader” of this embarrassing joke of a party. An Indian accountant. The tide has gone out, leaving some odd bits and pieces on the sand.

Bad news (below): the latest attack on British culture…

I always supported public service broadcasting. Still do, but the BBC is incurable. Defund the BBC and wipe it out.

We read or hear that semi-lunatic “adviser” Dominic Cummings wants Sunak to impose spending cuts. Now that millions more face being dependent on State benefits by next year, that could just be the flame which, applied to the blue touchpaper of the present developing situation, could trigger the social-national revolution.

Finance-capitalism is failing. Old-style Marxist or Marxist-influenced socialism has already comprehensively failed, in the UK and across the world. The people will be ready to clutch at our straw. Not yet. Soon, though.

Regular readers of this blog will recall the encounters I had with a couple of similar brainwashed would-be lecturing idiots a while ago.

If staff in businesses, or anyone else, act like cartoon labour camp overseers or prison guards, then they must expect to be laughed at.

Resist the facemask nonsense! Only wear a facemask if you really have no choice, and if you do wear a mask, make sure that you do so in a manner that makes it clear that you mock the nonsense and the government of clowns. Laugh at those who take it all seriously. Laugh at the rabbits!

The Army, Navy, Marines are all recruiting now on TV. They are finding it hard going to recruit many. I wonder why? Could it be that potential recruits realize that the armed services have become a joke? Also, that they abandon their people once their useful service has ended?

Take a look at Twitter. The Jewish-Zionist cabal on Twitter constantly tweets in favour of the migrant-invaders, “generously” wanting more to invade us. Yes, that Jewish mob on Twitter are all wonderfully generous with other people’s money, State funds etc, wanting the UK to take in anyone who manages to get here, no matter how hostile or useless. The same is true of “refugees welcome” dimwits and hypocrites such as Gary Lineker, Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen and all the other usual suspects.

Batten is too late. Regular readers of my blog will know that I suggested at least a year ago that Harry and the Royal Mulatta should (and would) relocate from the UK to Southern California.

I went on to suggest that they become a “reality TV” sitcom mix, perhaps living a pseudo-“royal” life in a little house; just Harry, the Mulatta, their baby, the dog (if not abandoned) and a butler, a Benson type. “Royal Married with Children“, with the Mulatta running her henpecked “cuck” husband ragged with impossible demands, as she tries to be a contender for political positions.

Sometimes I think that I am a male Cassandra, always predicting accurately, but rarely listened to…

Well, “historian” (TV presenter) Neil Oliver may be belatedly speaking up for some free speech now, but I seem to recall that he tweeted against me years ago when I still had a Twitter account. I have never seen anything from him supporting me, eg when I was disbarred for posting 5 tweets (out of 150,000+) on socio-political matters. I likewise did not see him support Jez Turner (imprisoned for making a speech) or Alison Chabloz (persecuted, prosecuted and convicted for singing satirical songs).

I also recall how biased Oliver was when some matters involving WW2 came up on his TV show, Coast.

Scotland does seem to be even worse on free speech than England. The combined influence of Jew-Zionism, freemasonry, Common Purpose (Police Scotland is riddled with both of the last two) and post-socialist SNP petty authoritarianism.

Ironic. What does Batten think that UKIP were? Quite. Controlled opposition. Just like Brexit Party, Tommy Robinson, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc.

Only machineguns can sort out this upsurge of madness in the USA. What it says to me is not “there is disorder now” but “if the US system ever weakens greatly, which is quite possible, there will be civil war“. Those unpleasant scenes may well be just the start.

I noticed in Waitrose that Ben & Jerry’s icecream is not selling, and has been reduced in price as a consequence. Don’t bother to sabotage it. Just boycott it.

Although Beira is the popular resort on the Indian Ocean, the hotel has never been able to attract many visitors.

Hard to know what to think. The Greenland ice cover is vast and deep, certainly, and Wikipedia says that “If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world’s sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

If that were to happen, a scenario that has interested me since the late 1970s (along with the possible melting of polar ice proper, both from Arctic and Antarctic), then most of the major cities of the world would be drowned, situated as most are on or near sea-level.

A rise of 23ft would flood much of London, New York, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, to name only a few of the most obvious.

On the other hand, we know that Greenland has been at times warmer than it now is. The Vikings farmed there; there are remains of farmsteads from quite ancient times, certainly from the first millennium AD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#History.

Not all of Greenland is ice and snow, however. In that vast land, over nine times the size of the UK, there is farming, in the southern part, by the coast.

I doubt that humanity can do much to change the climate in a significant way, but the issue is naturally one of utmost seriousness.

Less seriously, I just read that “Greenlandic coffee is a “flaming” dessert coffee (set alight before serving) made with coffee, whiskey, Kahlúa, Grand Marnier, and whipped cream. It is stronger than the familiar Irish dessert coffee.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#Cuisine. After a few of those, the sting of living in Greenland must at least be made less painful!

Rule Britannia

If you went, as orchestral conductor, or as ordinary tourist, to another country, and then tried to trash the traditional festivals of that country, you would be jeered at and quite possibly attacked or deported. In Britain, all sorts of oddities arrive, aided by traitors in the BBC etc, and want to disrespect us. I know that Rule Britannia is now simply an expression of an Empire that no longer exists, but it does stand for part of the national psyche. The part not yet contaminated. It must not be blotted out by the “woke”, the non-whites, the cosmopolitan Jews etc. As performed at the Proms, it is both emotional and fun. It must remain.

Diary Blog, 24 June 2020

Censorship

[above: David Icke, not the so-called “leading academic”]

The “leading academic” is one Daniel Allington, who describes himself on his own blog as a “computational social scientist”, so not an academic lawyer or human rights specialist. He is a “senior lecturer in AI”, and does not have a professorial chair. Oh, and he is “Head of Online Monitoring” at the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] too. The latter is the Jew-Zionist organization which has been conspiring against me and others (to name a few: David Icke, Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner) for years. See: 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/

The “CAA” describes Allington’s piece in the Sun “newspaper” as an “op-ed“, meaning a piece of opinion commissioned by the newspaper (sometimes unpaid). The term was first in use, I believe, in the Jew-infested New York Times (“all the news that fits”…), and the New York Times “op-ed” page was once described by Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan as the “Amen Corner” of the newspaper, because the scribblers were all Jew-Zionist neo-cons pushing the Israel First interventionist foreign policy line.

This is yet another attempt by what one might call “ZOG” and/or the Jewish lobby to destroy free speech, both online and offline. (((They))) have been pushing this for 60 years now, at first (of course) re. print media, now re. Internet publishing too.

As for the Sun “newspaper”, Rupert Murdoch has always been even more pro-Israel than most Jews (he himself is said to be part-Jew), and the Sun “newspaper” is and always has been slavishly pro-Israel and pro-Jewish lobby.

It is beyond ironic that Allington got his nonsense printed only in the Sun, long notorious for its invented “news reports” and other trash. There again, perhaps Allington simply does not quite “get” irony…

Some tweets seen

I would not normally repost anything from the unpleasant “Hope Not Hate” Jewish lobby group, but this is worth brief perusal:

So UKIP goes from bad to worse. The quite large quasi-System party “controlled opposition” of years ago has slid inexorably into Monster Raving Loony territory. There was an “interim leader”, some lady called Pat Mountain, and who was (as UKIP leaders since Farage have all been) as thick as two short planks; now this. An Indian with a faked-up CV, who is “libertarian”, and who wants to work against “Nazi” ideas and against “holocaust” “denial” (historical re-examination and revision). Just mad.

UKIP was always a bit of a joke, and was never social-national, but this surely takes the biscuit! I don’t know why the “Hope Not Hate” snoopers are making fun of this Vachha person, though. He sounds not so far from them in some ways, ideologically. Maybe he will join them.

A Joseph Rowntree report. Possibly worth reading:

The police will probably not catch these degraded individuals. Only Karma can bring justice. They will be punished.

We often underestimate what even one human being can achieve over time. It has been said that many people overestimate what they can achieve in a year, yet underestimate what they can achieve in 10 years. Look at Adolf Hitler. In his first year as political leader, he achieved comparatively little. Even nine years later, in 1928, his party received only 2.6% of the national vote. However, by 1932, that had increased to 33%; the following year, the vote was 44% and he was able to take on full powers of rulership.

[makes you think…]

Tom Watson

Well, as I predicted last year would happen, the Jewish lobby has found a well-paid sinecure for former Labour Party deputy leader, Tom Watson, who was notoriously in the pocket of the Jewish lobby, as well as being a relentless expenses cheat (until the system was slightly reformed, he was even blagging £500 a month on expenses —without fail— for food alone!)

Now I read that Watson has been appointed Chair of UK Music: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Music. Another “Labour” ex-MP entirely controlled by the Jewish lobby, Michael Dugher, was CEO until recently. Dugher is now the head of another body, to wit, Chief Executive of the Betting and Gaming Council (((BGC))).

In fact, I just discovered that, several years ago, around 2013, Tom Watson was “personally involved” with the (20 years younger) Stephanie Peacock, who was at the time trying to become a Labour Party MP. I do not know whether the affair continued, or continues. She failed in her first attempt to get into the MP racket, in 2015, but succeeded in her second, at the 2017 General Election, having been selected (by the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party, i.e. not by the local party) only a week before the election, for the —then— safe seat of Barnsley East. Oh, and guess who was, back in 2013, Chairman of the Labour Party NEC? That’s right…Tom Watson.

Now, Stephanie Peacock retweets posts by the Jewish lobby “Hope Not Hate” crowd. Once you start digging through the compost, you see that it is all (((connected))).

The first picture above is certainly accurate or at least plausible; I myself saw scenes like that (usually minus the lady) in Rhodesia, when I was there in 1977.

The Japanese, while quite impressive in some ways, indulge in habits which may or may not be harmless but which we (as a “nation”) do not do: buying used schoolgirls’ panties from vending machines, overnighting in coffin-like transparent capsules, washing before getting into a bath etc. I put the wearing of facemasks into that sort of category.

I noticed that long ago. Thus it is that the Twitter mob mostly favour “lockdown” as well as Remain; also, internet “regulation” (aka “censorship”), harsh laws against any expression of freedom re. the migration-invasion, “holocaust” “denial”, and so on.

Burnley aerial banner

The young hero who organized the recent “White Lives Matter” aerial banner has been sacked from his job at a factory. “Long live freedom”. Not in the UK!

There is little or no real freedom left in this country. The young man’s girlfriend has also been sacked. Guilt by association? True, we are not yet shot or chucked into labour camps in the Stalinist way, but the slope is there and getting slippery.

Jenrick

“Things are looking bleak”, they say, for that little pissant, Robert Jenrick, who has a Jewish lawyer wife and who is a complete doormat for the Jewish/Israel lobby.

Oh, and here is part-Jew “prime minister” Boris-idiot with the same Jew businessman, who seems to be sporting an Eton tie (lefthand photo below), though he did not attend Eton (he went to a local authority school in North London: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ%27s_College,_Finchley#Notable_former_pupils). Boris Johnson (who did attend Eton) is not wearing an Eton or OE tie).

Now why would Keir Starmer, new leader of the “Labour” Party, be so unwilling to attack the behaviour of pissant Robert Jenrick of the “Conservative” Party? Could it because both are in the pocket of the Jewish-Zionist-Israel lobby, both have Jewish wives (both of which are lawyers, too!), and both have half-Jewish children that both are bringing up as Jewish? Answers on a postcard…

Oh, and the Conservative Party donor and businessman (property vulture, publisher of porn etc) involved, and who gained £40 million by Jenrick’s corruption, is a Jew. What a shock. Not.

Indeed…

The ones who are kneeling are craven traitors and/or careerists.

I would say that the evil Indian woman noted by Nick Griffin, below, an academic at Churchill College of Cambridge University, is another “traitor”, were she British, but of course she is not. She is an enemy of the British people, living here and spewing poison against us.

Labour Is The Party of…? Labour Is The Party For…?

The most recent opinion polls [see below] must make sobering reading for Keir Starmer and his colleagues.

Now, we all know how flawed opinion polls are, how they only broadly reflect public opinion, how they cannot be exactly aligned to the likely outcome of British general elections because of the First Past The Post [FPTP] elctoral system and because of the way that boundaries are drawn:

c64bh5xw0aiwygy

Yes, all that is true. However, no party supported by 1% of the electorate in an  opinion poll has ever gone on to get 50% of the popular vote; likewise, no party has ever been valued at 50% of the popular vote, but then crashed to 1% at election time. A leas, as ar as I know. The opinion polls are not that inaccurate. I suppose that the nearest to such a situation was in 2019, when, at one point, Brexit Party was estimated to have a popular support in the region of 25%, but crashed to 2% in the actual election.

Having said the above, the 25%+ scored in the opinion polls by Brexit Party was well ahead of the actual election result. The polls taken nearer to polling day were fairly accurate, all putting Farage’s instant “party” at under 5%.

In other words, looking at the most recent opinion polls, Labour is now in really serious trouble. Some of the Jews who wanted rid of Corbyn are now half-heartedly praising Keir Starmer, as are msm scribblers, saying that there is now a real Opposition (etc). Well, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman, and his children are being brought up in a Jewish milieu. The “support” for Starmer from “them” is therefore unsurprising.

To continue the theme, we all know that “a week is a long time in British politics”, as Harold Wilson said in the 1960s. All one can say is that, at present, in May 2020, Labour is on the ropes. Somewhere around 30% to 33%. Its 2019 General Election result was 32.1% of the popular vote. My conclusion? Getting rid of Corbyn has not helped Labour as a party at all. Not that the Jews as a group care. They, as a group, vote “Conservative” anyway. Only about 5% of Jews vote Labour these days. Their only interest is that Corbyn has gone and that, along with that, the Jewish-Zionist element has regained control of Labour.

Clinton once said that he could (and did) reduce “welfare” benefits to the bare bones because the poorer part of American society will still vote Democrat. As he said, “where else will they go?“. Until they did (go). First to the Republicans under George W. Bush, then to Obama, the, er, Great White Hope (or whatever), and then, in desperation, to Donald Trump (under Republican banner).

Look at the UK. NWO/ZOG political superstar Tony Blair and his advisers said, of what some call the UK “white working class”, “where can they go?“. Well, now we know (so far). The Scots working classes left first, favouring the faux-“nationalist” SNP.

Back in 1997, Scottish Labour held or won 56 out of the then 72 Scottish seats at Westminster. Vote-share 45.6%. Since the 2019 General Election, Scottish Labour has had 1 seat at Westminster (out of 59) on a vote-share of 18.6%. For the first time since 1918, Scottish Labour is only the 4th party in Scotland, in terms of seats. 1959-2015, it was always the 1st party. It slipped to 2nd in 2015, 3rd in 2017 and 4th in 2019.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#UK_general_elections

True, Scottish Labour still received a vote-share of 18.6% in 2019, but that counts for little in FPTP voting. That share was, in any case, the lowest Labour vote in Scotland since 1910.

The SNP supremacy since 2015 means that Labour, as a UK national party, has effectively no chance of a majority at Westminster, and that the best it can hope for is an arrangement with the SNP, which after all, is a kind of social-democratic party. That’s assuming that Labour in England and in Wales can improve its position. Any such uplift in Labour fortunes is very doubtful.

In 2019, as I predicted, former Labour voters voted with their feet. Look at the very cleverly-conceived graphic below:

GeneralElection2019

As can be seen, almost as many former Labour voters abstained as voted for all the other parties put together.

The anti-Corbyn element in Labour and the msm (basically a Jewish claque) said that Corbyn was the reason voters were unwilling to vote Labour. That was partly true, though mainly because the Judenpresse had been hitting at him for 4 years. There were other factors, some connected with Corbyn, some not.

The deadhead MPs in Labour were (and remain) part of the problem: Diane Abbott, Fiona Onasanya (now an “unperson”, expelled from Labour and imprisoned), Kate Osamor, Dawn Butler etc. I blogged about a few of them:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/02/troop-cartload-barrel-or-family/

That black/brown group was very much tied-in with Corbyn who, notoriously, had had, as a young man, a fling with Diane Abbott:

As a matter of fact, the Labour performance under Corbyn, in popular-vote terms, was better than under both Miliband and Brown. The seats gained or retained by Labour in 2019 were far fewer, though; in 2017, Corbyn did better than his two predecessors in terms of seats too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Party_(UK)#UK_general_elections

Under Keir Starmer, the Shadow Cabinet is full of Labour Friends of Israel members, Corbyn and his cronies have gone and Labour is now rising in the polls and looking more credible every day that passes. Oh, no…wait. Belay the last couple of points…

In fact, Labour is in every way stagnant. Stagnant in the polls. Almost invisible in the news. Supporting pretty much everything the Boris-idiot “Conservative” joke-government is doing re. Coronavirus, and only mildly criticizing bits and pieces. Pathetic.

The problem Labour has is firstly ideological, in that socialism in the old sense died in and around 1989. In the early 1990s, Labour finally admitted to itself that it had stopped being “socialist”. It became “social-democratic” and then, under Blair, outright finance-capitalist with “socialist” and “social-democratic” fig leaves.

Now, Labour is just a label, which loudmouth Friends of Israel MP, Jess Phillips, said (with her customary grace) is “just a f****** rose

VOTE LABOUR - ROSE FLAG 25mm 1" Pin Badge SUPPORT JEREMY CORBYN ...

What does a symbol mean? If nothing, then the party whose symbol it is, is nothing.

We have seen that the Scottish “working classes” etc have largely deserted Labour. In fact, now that Corbyn is gone, it may be that Labour’s 18.6% vote in 2019 will become closer to 10% or lower whenever the next general election is held.

We have also seen that the English “working classes” have been deserting Labour. That is especially the case in the North and Midlands, the so-called “red wall” of the past. The scandal of the Muslim Pakistani rape gangs killed Labour for many, as Labour’s Common Purpose placemen and women in politics, local government, the police and (inevitably) social services ignored the widespread abuse of white English girls by (mainly) Pakistanis.

Likewise on the wider immigration point. The “Conservatives” have been hopeless on mass immigration (aka “migration-invasion”) and basically just “talk a good game”, but Labour actually and deliberately encouraged the migration invasion, in order to destroy Britain’s race and culture. That fact was leaked by Labour insiders. The Jews Phil Woolas and Barbara Roche were behind much of it. They became so toxic that neither was able to find other seats for which to stand.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Roche

The cartoonists picked up on it, both at the time and then later, when Corbyn was leader:

The UK electoral system, as it applies in England at least, is binary. At present, the two parties supposedly opposed to each other are not in equal positions. The Conservative Party, having fluked a large majority, is in government for the moment, and probably until 2024, certainly until 2022. The Labour Party has become a total irrelevance.

As I have previously blogged (and, before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter, tweeted), Labour is now the party of the public service employees, of the blacks and other ethnic minorities (except the Jews) and of the mostly urban, maybe young or young-ish supporters of failed “multiculturalism” and pseudo-socialism. About 25% of the population. There are some old Labour loyalists around, too. In toto, maybe 30% of the population. Which is where Labour is in the polls. I cannot see Labour getting much beyond that now. Keir Starmer may be without scandal (as far as we know) but he is as dull as ditchwater. New ideas for society? None.

When you take away old-style socialism, when the old Labour communities in the industrial heartland of England no longer exist, when Labour no longer represents Britain’s history, race and culture, what is left? Nothing.

The same or similar, mutatis mutandis, could be said about the Conservative Party, up to a point, but the misnamed “Conservatives” still have a southern England voting bloc which, though ageing and fraying, is still there.

To return to those words of Clinton and Blair, “where will they go?”. Well, not to Labour (from other parties). To apathy, but only so long as doing nothing is less painful than doing something.

Labour’s slow death has left the Conservative Party in the ascendant. When that star starts to fall, Labour will not benefit. A new party might.

Coronavirus and culling (killing)

The original Daily Telegraph comment piece takes the amorality of present-day “Conservatism”  to a new level, at least in public discourse. Openly supporting the death of millions in order to support the finance-capitalist economy.

This is a logical consequence of what has been happening in society and especially in the Conservative Party over the past decade or so. We saw it in the Dunce Duncan Smith DWP regime (which continues, though without Dunce), in the way in which broadly the poorer part of society has been harried and bullied etc.

This is not even, or not only, political as such. It is a question of morality. It shows to what extent ideas such as those of the “philosopher of selfishness”, the “Russian” Jewess, Ayn Rand, have permeated the West. In the UK, mainly the Conservative Party. Raceless, cultureless, rootless persons such as Sajid Javid, who openly enthuses about Ayn Rand and her pathetic ideas.

I wonder how many of the almost entirely elderly, Conservative-voting persons who read the Telegraph realize that the newspaper and the Conservative Party regard their death as something rather positive?

It also shows to what extent society, UK society, has lost its “moral compass”.

The Jews are always pushing the “Nazis were terrible” line, but here we have mass killing of the mainly British elderly openly praised by the most influential and “serious” newspaper in Britain (though few newspapers are now really serious) and in our supposedly wonderful, supposedly “liberal” society…and only a few dissident pseudo-socialists on Twitter take exception (apart from social-national “extremists” like me, I suppose).

This is the kind of political amorality that has suffused our society over more than a decade. Effectively over two decades. We now have someone posing as “Prime Minister” who has no morality at all (and in fact no real intellectual life, just a dummy education in the classics, injected into him in his youth). A completely amoral Prime Minister, without any ideas worth anything, and without principle. He is also useless in a crisis.

Boris-idiot is advised (as good as controlled) by Dominic Cummings, himself someone of disordered mind, and whose own relatively brief business career, in the 1990s, was marked by complete failure.

The Twitterstorm continues, but few have expressed the points that

  • Twitter is not real life,
  • Twitter is not very influential in reality,
  • Twitter changes nothing.

So here we are, after 500-600 years of post-mediaeval culture:

  • pandemic
  • no medicines work against the epidemic/pandemic
  • antibiotics are not working or are irrelevant to the situation
  • anyone unwell must “self-isolate” in their own home, with or without a red cross painted on the door
  • State (NHS) help is unavailable for most people
  • the only advice is “wash your hands frequently”

Nadine Dorries

Ironically, the junior health minister (PUS), Nadine Dorries [Con, Mid Bedfordshire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadine_Dorries] has become the first MP to fall victim to the virus (she is recovering in “self-isolation” at time of writing).

God Almighty!

Don’t forget— all of those ignorant people, whether you call them by any particular label or not,

  • have a vote equal to yours
  • probably think that they know as much or more than you
  • are willing to hate you if any newspaper they manage to read tells them this or that

They call it “democracy”…what a sick joke!

Opinion poll [Kantar]

Results (selected):

  • Westminster voting intention: Con 50% (!), Lab 29%, LibDems 11%, Greens 2%, UKIP 1%, Brexit Party 1%
  • 2019 General Election Labour voters think that the best new leader would be: Keir Starmer 25%, Lisa Nandy 15%, Rebecca Long-Bailey 8%, Don’t Know who would be best 52%…

Even with Boris-idiot failing to fill the shoes of a prime minister, even with a deadhead Cabinet, the Conservatives are yet on 50% of the popular vote, with Labour on a mere 29%. Labour has lost touch with the people generally and the people generally have thus cut Labour loose. Labour continues to dominate the Twittersphere, the inner city metro-London space, the world of the NHS and other public services, the loyalty of the blacks and browns. Otherwise? Dead and unlikely to have more than a limited revival.

Shortages

The loo paper panic-buying (in the UK and other —mainly Anglo— countries) is based not so much on practicality or prepping as on psychological foundations.

A few basic things maintain our sense of modern, civilized life, of Western civilization in fact. These are not intangibles such as music, philosophy, the confused ideas of “democracy”, however important those may be, but tangibles: electricity, running water, flush loos and, with those, loo paper.

We laugh at those stockpiling loo paper (so long as we ourselves have “enough”), because we may say “having loo paper will not prevent you getting Coronavirus/Covid-19”, and that is true. It is also true that having a stock of loo paper will not help you much if you do get the virus, because you will use little if any more paper than usual, and the sickness will pass (whatever happens) within a couple of weeks. The average person therefore needs only a stock of perhaps 6-18 rolls. The real point is the psychology.

We feel afraid, to a greater or lesser extent; we feel insecure. The State, NHS, police, whatever, do not offer security, least of all during this virus crisis. We therefore, as a society, turn to basic needs and amplify them. Electricity, running water etc cannot be stockpiled, not by the individual citizen. Loo paper can be stockpiled, though. Ergo, bulk buying…

The bulk buying of loo paper and some other items is an attempt to wrest back control of everyday life from the vortex of uncertainty.

I might add that, so far, the bulk buying has not stopped. I was at Waitrose late yesterday (they shut at 2000 hours here). No hand gel on sale, other cleaning items for the home largely sold out. The entire stock of loo paper sold out, not a roll left (and a cashier with whom I chatted told me that when she started her shift hours before, the stock had already gone…). The cheaper own-brand pasta also sold out (except for peculiarly-shaped pasta). Also, tinned tomato and, to a lesser extent, tinned sweetcorn.

There were, however, fewer actual shoppers than usual.

I would not want to add to the semi-panic, but I have discovered that the loo paper used in the UK comes, most of it, from overseas: 1.1 million tonnes out of 1.3 million. That’s the raw material. So it is not beyond reason to think that there might be a shortage if supply lines are disrupted.

However, we know, as far as Coronavirus is concerned, that there is a wave which rises and eventually falls. Weeks, maybe a few months at most, certainly not years. The most loo paper that any normal individual needs to have, based on 90 days, would therefore be somewhere around (arguably) 30 rolls. Maybe even as little as 20 rolls. So even a family of 4 people would need no more than (between) 80-120 rolls at absolute maximum. For 3 months’ supply. That must put the matter into perspective from the purely logical point of view.

The vicious defendants are merely described in the Daily Mirror as “from Lincoln”. No mention of the fact that they are Roma gypsies from Romania, as is obvious to any thinking person from their appearance and names. If they cannot be simply disposed of, they should at least be deported (and preferably sterilized first).

People often wonder why the public accepts “fake news”. Part of that is because the Zionist-influenced msm so often conceals real news.

Budget

The spending plans set out by Rishi Sunak today should have been put in place, speaking in overall terms, in 2010, 2011, 2012. Other countries, including USA and Germany, and France (among many others) did that to counteract the crazed meltdown of the “banking system” (i.e. the last finance-capitalism crisis) in 2007-2008.

Those countries did much better economically than the UK in the past decade, and they have not had to endure the social miseries caused directly by the sort of policies put in place by George Osborne, that pathetic little part-Jew sadist. Spending cuts, “austerity” (for half of the population) etc.

Look at Germany at the end of the Great Depression. Six million unemployed, the economy stagnant etc. The National Socialist government from 1933 got everything moving, and crucially started that happening by acts of political will. New projects were part of it, but the will to move forward energized everything. The will stemmed from one man, Adolf Hitler. He transmitted the will to his immediate followers and to the NSDAP, which then moved the whole country forward. Yes, part of the improvement was the removal of exploitation by Jews (though Jews still owned vast parts of the German economy for years after that, right up to 1939 in some cases), but the real cause of Germany’s uplift was the programme put in place to do things.

Final word for today

I think that it is absolutely legitimate to be angry at China for repeatedly unleashing dangerous viruses on the rest of the world mainly because of the generally disgusting Chinese attitude to animals, because of the fact that the Chinese in China will use and eat virtually anything, and often keep and use animals in disgusting ways.

There is much to admire in both the ancient Chinese culture and the contemporary Chinese capabilities, but political correctness and moral cowardice must not stop us from inflicting on China justified criticism, though of course no individual Chinese (especially in Europe) should be held accountable.
