“Lockdown”/shutdown madness: when will Britain awake?

Everyone should read this damning critique.

This too:

In fact, things must be getting bad: even Fortnum’s are laying off staff, which is a pity, and undeserved. The last time I was in Fortnum’s, in October 2016 (in fact on the day of my maliciously-procured disbarment, procured by a pack of evil Jews), the staff were superb, and much better than some had been back in 2001-2002 when I was a frequent customer (mainly for the excellent Fortnum & Mason Viennese Coffee)

How long before people start to realize that, as a really serious or fatal condition, “the virus” in the UK is pretty much at an end?

[The death rate was in fact already falling before “lockdown” was even implemented, let alone the very recent facemask nonsense]

The economic fallout has only just started.

Psychological aspects

It occurred to me yesterday, as I observed both dissenters and “rabbits” (eager or very compliant facemask-wearers) in Waitrose, that there is a strong psychological aspect to this facemask nonsense.

When masked, you cannot much express your feelings, whether by smiling or scowling. The people are distanced from each other by the mask(s), as they are also by the 6-foot “social distancing”, another government diktat which is without much independent scientific backing.

There may be, behind the scenes, a long-term psychological experiment or programme being carried out here, carried out on the public at large, in order to produce results later on, perhaps decades or even centuries in the future.

When a candidate-freemason is initiated as a member of a masonic lodge, certain things are done to him: he is blindfolded, a cold sword is placed on his flesh etc. This is done, beyond the outward symbolism, in order to inculcate definite sensations in the feeling and will of the candidate. [also worth reading but more generally: https://wn.rsarchive.org/GA/GA0167/19160404p01.html]

There is an analogy to be made between what that masonic ceremony inculcates by way of conditioning a candidate, and what is being done to the general public by way of conditioning using “social distancing”, facemask wearing etc. Avoidance of others, even relatives, even non-resident girlfriends/boyfriends; the wearing of masks which show little or no emotion; the staying 6 feet clear of others. All these are not without effect, possibly profound and longlasting effect.

I noticed when in the local Waitrose (a couple of miles from my humble home) that people, who otherwise may be perfectly sensible, steer their shopping trolleys or carts around me so as to keep as near to the silly “6 feet” or “2 metres” distance as they can (because, after all, I might have the plague…)! Rabbits.

Many if not most probably realize that, in general, Boris Johnson is an idiot, his ministers stupid clowns, and “SAGE” ludicrously misnamed; yet there they all are, wearing masks, “social distancing”, in one part of their minds pretending to themselves that there is real danger around, while they (at least the more intelligent) must know that that is simply not so.

Was I myself wearing a mask? Sadly, yes, because without the mask, the Handmaid’s Tale militia that Waitrose now have, loitering outside their stores, will not let you in (though they have no power to do anything more beyond chucking you out if a manager-person tells them to do that). I half-wear the mask (the smallest ones purchaseable), leaving my nose free, and make sure to express my dissent to any staff I encounter who know me by sight (in fact, so far all have agreed with me).

You sometimes see people on Twitter etc saying that, were they to live under some repressive regime, they would be part of some “resistance” movement. Yeah, right! They will not even question the most absurd excesses of this”virus” nonsense, such as suddenly wearing masks in all shops, but not in pubs or offices, and despite the fact that “the virus”, as a serious health threat, peaked in March/April and is now ebbing away.

Blackwell’s certainly is or was (seems still to be) a first class bookshop. When I was 18, I went in there looking for the late mediaeval or early modern (1486) text, Malleus Maleficarum https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malleus_Maleficarum; http://www.malleusmaleficarum.org/.

They had a copy. It was too expensive for me, but they let me sit reading it at a table for 2 hours! Now, that’s a real bookshop!

Some good news at last.

A serious crime in most countries, but the maximum possible sentence of 35 years reported is, to say the least, Draconian. A tenth of that might be about right, in my view, and that despite the fact that I am ideologically hostile to those idiots if they support the “Black Lives Matter” uprising.

Being a lawyer of some kind does not innoculate against radicalism or even “terrorism”. After all, Lenin himself was a lawyer by training, and had worked as one for a short while (his very nom de guerre came from a case with which he was involved, along the Lena river).

Griffin forgot to note that that individual is also a Jew. I don’t blame Griffin, though: he wants to stay on Twitter as long as he can, I expect.

Below: the Jew-Zionist bullies of the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake “charity” now want the power (and duty) of the Crown Prosecution Service to monitor private prosecutions to be taken away, which would leave individuals open to unrestricted “lawfare” by heavily-funded Jewish para-terrorists, abusing the law (even more than at present) for political purposes

Any MPs not in the pocket of the Jewish lobby must be made fully aware of the malice pervading the “CAA” and its members.

Look at the expensive RIB, with powerful outboard motor. Just abandoned, along with the lifejackets. These “refugees” are not short of money. A boat with outboard motor like that costs thousands, even secondhand.

Some idiots will not only call these migrant-invaders “refugees” but also say “what does it matter? Only 10 persons“, missing several points: there are sometimes dozens of similar landings in a single day, meaning as many as 5,000-10,000 a year and adding up to maybe 50,000-100,000 invaders.

Then there is the point that this is only part of the invasion. Trucks, boots of cars etc, plus “legally permitted” immigration of students, “family members”, persons on work visas who never go home etc. That’s without even taking into account births to non-Europeans already living in the UK. Pop! Pop! Pop! Goodbye England?

Well, at last some reality is coming down the tracks…and it could be brutal.

unemployment could peak at 13 per cent in the first quarter of 2021 – which would mean more than four million people on the dole queue.” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8525539/Boris-Johnson-admits-jobs-lost-watchdog-warned-4m-unemployed.html

[above: UK GDP, by OBR]

If 4 million unemployed by 2021 is the figure these clowns are suggesting, then 8 million may not be inconceivable. This is or should be the great moment for a social-national breakthrough in 2022 or so. Yet there is no real social national party or movement in the UK.

I leave aside (as blogged about previously) the few clowns and “movements” that do exist at present in the UK.

Rudolf Steiner, I believe it was (it may have been Valentin Tomberg), who talked about the dilemma of people in these times in such terms as “I feel that I cannot do that which I must do…“. That is how I feel. The necessity is there and recognized, but the ways and means of doing what is necessary are not there…

I feel and recognize and know what is required, but have not the means (in terms of the old British song “…we’ve got the ships…we’ve got the men…we’ve got the money too!”).

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1ZFzs7hL5g]

Perhaps the way will be made clear. At the age of 63, I do not have the luxury of waiting for years for the right moment to arrive. A new movement must come, one credible enough and powerful enough to do what it takes…

Cometh the hour, cometh the man…

Chinese infiltration into UK

China has infiltrated Britain more successfully than it has other European countries, an expert warned last night.

Author Mareike Ohlberg, who has written about the underhand tactics of the country’s Communist Party, said attempts to groom leading figures in business and politics were at an advanced stage in the UK.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8528025/Britain-Europes-No-1-target-infiltration-Chinas-Communist-Party-expert-warns.html

So what does Boris-idiot do? Gives 3-4 million Hong Kong Chinese (some of whom may be intelligence agents) the right to live in the UK! Even if many are anti-Peking dissidents, the fact is that (combined with the nearly half million already here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Chinese_immigration_to_the_United_Kingdom) the Chinese population of the UK might well be as many as 5 million by 2040. About 7% of the population. From the point of view of Peking, job done, strategically…

What “they” say

A Government report on extremism during the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted far-right activists’ calls to “infect Jews” as well as five different ways antisemites have blamed Jews for spreading the virus.” [Jewish News]

 “...individuals such as David Icke played “a significant role in spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories linked to Covid-19” [Jewish News]

Although Icke was successfully de-platformed from YouTube and Facebook, the scale and reach of his antisemitic conspiracy theories remains extremely concerning,” the report’s authors said.” [Jewish News]

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/extremism-report-highlights-spike-in-far-right-antisemitism-during-pandemic/

Get that. A “government report” (not really) from the so-called “Commission for Countering Extremism” [“CCE”], says outright, in its bias, that David Icke was “successfully deplatformed” from YouTube and Facebook.

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Khan_(activist)

https://www.vogue.co.uk/article/sara-khan-we-will-inspire-muslim-group

This “Commission” is rather uninfluential, and was set up under Theresa May as Prime Minister. She of course was totally under the thumb of the Jewish lobby. Still, it is striking how biased it is, talking about how Icke was “successfully deplatformed” etc. No pretence of objectivity. In fact, its existence is merely one example of how governments waste money. I expect that the present government would like to bin this fake “Commission” and its useless “Lead Commissioner” (one Sara Khan), but cannot think of a plausible way to bin it and her.

Well, lookee here…

Not only have all (I think) the pop-up “Nightingale Hospitals” closed, mostly without ever having been used, but even the Coronavirus/Covid-19 testing centres are now closing for lack of use; yet this Government of idiots ploughs on with its fear propaganda, and enforcement of muzzles for people (facemasks) etc. Result? Destruction of what is left of the economy, particularly the retail sector.

One of the reasons why charities are such a “rotten borough” in the UK is because their funding (in some cases) comes only partly from members of the public, but also comes from government funds, or from the National Lottery (the “Good Causes Fund”).

In other words, the charity sector is pervaded by the sort of Common Purpose drones you see on Twitter. This is why you get quite mediocre people (eg at Save the Children) heading charities and being paid £300,000 a year. This is also why you get the sex scandals, as with sex pest/rapist Brendan Cox etc. Because the charities have guaranteed income provided via people embedded in government, quangos etc, which people belong to the same cabals.

Strange. I must have missed that time when Piers Morgan spoke up for me, when I was disbarred at the instigation of a pack of Jews: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/, or the time when effectively the same pack of Jews made a malicious complaint against me to Essex Police: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Oh…in fact there never was such a time when Piers Morgan defended my freedom to express myself on political, social, religious, historical and cultural matters. Piers Morgan never did defend my rights.

I also never saw Morgan defend the rights of others known to me, people such as Alison Chabloz, prosecuted for posting online some of her satirical songs, such as (((Survivors))): https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/07/07/free-speech-alison-chabloz-wins-a-victory-but-still-faces-attack/

Still, I suppose that half a pint is better than no pint…

[above: the British bulldog, muzzled (they emasculated him first…)]

The muzzling of the population is, of course, made for the Twitterati, most of them. All the “antifascists”, “socialists” (pseudo-socialists), all the “anti-racists” and communitarians and “slacktivists”. They love the fact that they can mask-up and virtue-signal all the way to the office (that most are not attending).

Good grief…Pity, one or two rounds would have done it.

The usual Twitter “antifascist”/multikulti mob are getting it wrong, yet again. They say that the Begum creature is “British”. Technically perhaps, in terms of birthplace, passport etc, but racially and culturally she is not in any real sense “British”; neither are many millions of others.

The solution to “Islamist” terror is not to have incubating populations here in the UK. See https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/02/12/terrorism-and-reason/

Look (below) at this idiot!”If you were born in China, you would be Chinese” says the idiot…One James Shaw, aka “Planet Zombie”. All too typical, at least on Twitter.

Good to see people fighting back. We need a mass “no facemask day” protest. I’m in…

I agree with this one too! (@plutoslovechild, below)

Below, a shop standing up against facemask tyranny:

The “Covid-19″/Coronavirus scare: much of this is actually a ZOG/NWO scam. Not all. Much.

It does highlight the poverty of thought in and around government that the idiots actually seem to believe that forcing everyone to be muzzled or masked will increase footfall in shops! The reasoning seems to be that shoppers will feel more confident and safe. No. It’s like when you are at, say, Heathrow, and smug, stupid-looking police are stalking around with their Heckler & Koch MP5 and other weapons. Does that make you feel “safer”? No. It makes you think “what might happen in the event of a terrorist incident?

In other words, the armed police at airports, in reality, do the opposite of reassuring most members of the public. Is that ignorance on the part of the public? Maybe not; I mean, if terrorists suddenly launched an attack, what would the heavily-armed police do? Open fire in some place as crowded as were (before “the virus” almost wiped out civil aviation) the Heathrow or Gatwick passenger terminals? I sincerely hope not!

Reverting to the facemask curse, my guess is that most people will be shopping online for things. The shops and department stores are going to be empty or almost empty because of the facemask nonsense, because of the residual thought that they just might pick up “the virus” (unlikely though that is) and finally because, soon at least, most people are going to have a great deal less money to spend in shops.

[above: Untermensch stamps on British patriot]

Boris-idiot, the puppet posing as Prime Minister, thinks that “racism” is a problem in the UK. The real problem is the multikulti society itself, which he supports, or is willing to support (((if it is made worth his while))).

Unwanted questions

The black man who “rescued” a white man from being killed by blacks at Waterloo Station has been lauded by the msm as a “hero”. He certainly seems to have done something creditable by saving that Englishman from being beaten and kicked to death by a black mob, but one has to ask what the “rescuer” was doing there at all. He was, in the photos I have seen, wearing thin black gloves on a warm day, and he admits to being there as a “protester”. Were the blacks beating that Englishman known to him? And what were the police (who were right there too) doing? Filming? Bending the knee in sign of fealty to the mob? What?

New laws by diktat

The government of fools just made another law today, and thanks to their previous removal of even basic democratic norms, had no need to get the approval of Parliament. The result is that everyone requiring public transport or hospital services, or who has to visit any hospital, needs to wear a face covering. God, how stupid.

In fact, I see little opposition to these latest Kafka-esque “laws”. This has become a “nation” (which scarcely deserves the name) of scared rabbits. Stay at home. Be scared. Protect the (increasingly useless) NHS. Clap like Stalin-era Russian factory workers when ordered to. Etc.

I saw an opinion poll which claimed that a third of all British people are, even now, too frightened (of the Chinese virus) to leave the security of their homes! You expect a few complete cranks like the woman in the photograph below, wearing a “hazmat” suit (not to undertake biological warfare research or Ebola nursing, but to go shopping at Primark, apparently). You do not expect a third of the British people to cower in their homes, especially for no good reason.

https://twitter.com/mattlyynch/status/1272442003591254016?s=20

[the tweeter deleted the tweet before I could copy the photo, sadly. That’s Britain today…the land of scared rabbits]

Note also the “2 metre social distancing”, which actually has little or no scientific justification anyway (the World Health Organization says that 1 metre —a yard, in old money— is more than enough).

The British people now are not those of the past, those mostly resilient people who are now fading into history and legend. Today’s British are almost all a mass of frightened rabbits who stand outside their houses to clap like idiots (for no other reason than to virtue-signal), and who possess neither the discipline to accomplish anything more than a tweet or a Facebook message, nor the anger necessary to resist this confused semi-dictatorship actively.

The tweet below shows the line of shoppers trying to shop at Primark in Birmingham:

Strange. Had I not been told that that is Birmingham, I would have sworn that it is Oxford Street in London (and I lived in near-Central London for many years). Very similar. I do not know Birmingham at all. Anyway, the line is long indeed. Seems that about half, maybe more, of those lining up are non-white. I suppose that reflects the demographics in that city and region.

Here is Hereford:

[above: line of shoppers in Hereford. The blonde in the middle ground looks interesting…]

I have never been in a Primark shop. I am told that they sell cheap clothing. In a sense, these lines are surprising, in that anything required can be bought online (though apparently not from Primark itself), so why wait in line? It’s a mystery, like why some people stood outside their houses and clapped every week just because some idiot told them to do so.

Looking at the wider picture, I have been blogging for months about the absurdity of the “lockdown”/shutdown, its Kafka-esque “advice”, “rules” and (purported) “laws” and, of equal importance, the incredible damage that the shutdown has been doing to our society generally and to the UK economy particularly. A few msm voices (very few) also saw the situation clearly. Peter Hitchens, mainly.

Now, the view has cleared, but the msm interest is still focussed on the medical or epidemiological aspects of the Coronavirus situation rather than the damage done by the panic-stricken Government policy response.

Finally, here and there, the msm is starting to report on the train coming down the tunnel at the people of the UK.

The Coronavirus shutdown has shrunk the UK economy by 20%. That is massive. The figure for 2020 as a whole is now forecast to be a drop of 8%, which may prove to be conservative: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jun/15/uk-economy-to-shrink-8-percent-in-2020-with-coronavirus-recovery-not-until-2023-forecasters-say

Now, there will be no sudden upsurge in demand, because much of the population has had the life scared out of it by the Government, its hopeless “scientific advisers”, and the toytown British police, assisted eagerly by the Twitter mob of me-too conformists (and others).

Primark is not the only shop open today. Far from it. It is however the only one with such lines, presumably because the others sell online. A straw in the wind for the retail sector. Online sales are now where the action is, and the outlook for the “High Street” retail sector, based in actual shops, is bleak.

[above: Newcastle city centre today: few shoppers]

Companies are already collapsing, and huge numbers of companies are going to be shedding staff once the State stops the “furlough” programme (i.e. stops subsidizing notional employment). How many will be chucked onto the scrapheap (aka “Universal Credit”, aka “the dole”) is a matter for speculation. Figures as high as ten million have been mentioned.

This must have political consequences. The question, though, is what consequences. Outside Scotland and maybe Northern Ireland, the UK political system is basically binary. One cuckoo goes into the clock and the other comes out. That is how it works on the surface, but under the surface there are currents of lava moving.

Most people in the msm, and/or on Twitter, are still mentally locked into the LibLabCon (mainly Con/Lab) idea:

Why is that tweeter not seeing clearly? The former “Red Wall” of (former) Labour voters did not vote Conservative in 2019! No, most of them did not; what they did was not vote Labour.

The above graphic tells the story brilliantly. For every 9 former (2017) Labour voters who did not vote Labour in 2019, only 2 actually switched to the Conservative Party; 2 also switched to vote LibDem; 1 voted Brexit Party, but 4 did not vote at all.

In other words, the mass media narrative that voters in the “Red Wall” constituencies were so sick of Labour that they gave the Conservatives a chance to prove themselves is flawed. Flawed firstly because Nigel Farage stabbed his candidates, activists, supporters and would-be voters in the back by standing down all his candidates in Conservative-held seats.

Yes, the Red Wall was composed of Labour-held seats, but once Farage killed his own party nationally, there was little incentive for voters in those Labour-held areas to vote Brexit Party even as a protest vote. Instead, many voted Conservative Party as “the only way to get Brexit”, a theme constantly reiterated by Boris Johnson during the campaign.

Other former Labour voters voted LibDem as a protest, mainly as a pro-EU, Remain, protest.

The nearly half of Labour voters who just stayed home are key. Some hated Corbyn (often because the Jewish lobby had been attacking him for 4 years in the msm). Others could just not stomach ridiculous blacks like Diane Abbott, Dawn Butler, Kate Osamor etc as probable Cabinet ministers. A large number, in my view, simply wanted a real political alternative, and did not find one.

There is a space here for a real social-national party or movement, especially when you see that a third of all eligible voters did not even vote in the 2019 General Election.

The article is worth reading: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-red-wall-overwhelmingly-opposes-a-no-deal-brexit

I agree with this: “...their behavior in government is making previously loyal supporters at last wonder if they know what they are doing” [The Spectator].

Incidentally, The Spectator needs a better sub-editor: “behaviour” is spelled thus, not “behavior“, which is the American spelling.

As to this: ” 70 per cent of Red Wall voters said they wanted to work with Europe, whereas only 20 per cent said America should be the UK’s main partner“, “Europe” yes, “EU” not or maybe not. Naturally, British/English people (I mean real British/English people, white people) want to work with fellow-Europeans, not Jew-ruled America, but that does not mean that they want back in the EU.

A poll given to The Spectator today by the Best for Britain think tank shows the gap between ‘Red Wall’ voters and the Tory elite in London is dizzyingly wide. It reports overwhelming opposition to a no-deal Brexit in the seats that put Johnson in Downing Street. As striking is the widespread concern about living standards and equally valid worries about the Conservatives tying Britain to the Trump administration.” [The Spectator] [my emphasis]

Britain’s future?

“Q: Was Churchill ‘racist’?

A: “I have heard some people say he is racist…others say he is a hero…I’ve not personally met him.” [Channel 4 interviewee, some dim “Black Lives Matter” black or half-caste woman, who should obviously be at home cooking plantains and not trying to sound as if she knows her arse from her elbow on national TV…]

Still, wake up, Labour Party! There is a potential successor to Diane Abbott!

As tweeters say, LMAO!

Blast from the past: the Adelphi, Liverpool

Sorry to hear that the Adelphi Hotel has fallen on hard times. I stayed there for a few days, ungazetted, when an ad-hoc Soviet ballet company (mainly Bolshoi dancers, if I remember aright) was in Liverpool. That would have been in about 1985 or 1986. My then girlfriend’s small suite had a sitting room with a kind of curtained-off bedroom. An entrance hall led to the sitting room and also to a spacious bathroom.

Britannia Adelphi, Liverpool 2018.jpg

The prima ballerina, whose name I forget, was unhappily married and thought to be mentally unstable. She had, I was told, a magnificent suite. For her own protection, both in view of her emotional state and because protesting Jews supporting “refuseniki” (Soviet Jews supposedly wanting to emigrate to Israel from the Soviet Union— most ended up in California) might alarm her, a KGB man slept across her doorway all night, every night, in the manner of Russia’s ancient history.

In fact, that dancer was at risk— she later tried to commit suicide in Sardinia, by slitting her wrists in her bath. Her husband was constantly unfaithful, apparently. Also, she was about 40. Not good for a dancer, though the famous ones have often overcome age to retain public affection: Maya Plisetskaya, Margot Fonteyn etc.

In fact, those dancers (the couple) were living a golden or velvet life in Moscow. His and hers Mercedes cars, dacha, luxury apartment etc. A lifestyle most people (whether in Moscow or the UK) never experience. Still, money cannot, as such, buy happiness. It’s just a dull grind when money is short…

The Adelphi was, I thought, a good hotel at that time (now about 35 years ago). A quartet played classical pieces live in the opulent and huge foyer. Among those listening was the then Chief Constable of Merseyside. The hotel was a landmark in Liverpool.

Coronavirus and Labour

The Labour Party is now weaker than it has ever been, in my view. Weaker even than it was under that unpleasant little hypocrite Michael Foot.

Labour under Corbyn, though weak, was stronger than it now is. Now Labour is going to —eventually— elect a new leader, which could be Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey or Lisa Nandy. All have kow-towed to the Jew lobby, all have otherwise similar policies, though Rebecca Long-Bailey is the most radical of the three. Starmer looks likely to be the choice, because he frightens few horses; as against that, he is as dull as ditchwater.

Labour’s problem can be said to reside in the fact that, outside the Labour Party membership, few people even care which of the three becomes Labour leader.

Labour, for which 10 million voters voted in 2019, is scarcely in the exact position of UKIP after 2015, when UKIP gradually became a joke, an irrelevance and then eventually just a nothing. Having said that, there is a parallel. Labour now has no power to speak of in the Commons, because the Conservative Party majority of 80 can steamroller through almost anything.

Beyond that, there is the point that the Coronavirus rescue package of Rishi Sunak, whatever its deficiencies and flaws, has pretty much shot Labour’s fox on “austerity” etc. All Labour can say is “we would have done more and better…(if we were in power, which we are not, and will not be for years, if ever…)”.

Not a very impressive position. The msm continue to give Labour MPs a platform, as required by OFCOM rules etc, but in reality, Labour has become something close to an irrelevance. In fact, it has been reduced to supporting the Government’s positions in the present crisis.

It is clear that Iain Dunce Duncan Smith’s shambolic “welfare” “reforms” are not only completely stupid but cannot work administratively. Why is this surprising? After all, Dunce only got to Lieutenant in his 6 years of being an Army officer. He never had any responsible civilian job either. How could such a person really conceive a workable social security reform, even if “IDS” were a better person morally than he in fact is?

However, the collapse of the Universal Credit system and other DWP areas, under the weight of the Coronavirus burden, will not help Labour. In fact, any “opposition” will more likely come from within the Conservative Party itself.

I detect no real chance for Labour at present, nor for quite a while into the future. If ever.

Evening foray

I had not intended to make a ratissage on the supermarkets this evening, but in the end I did, mainly to get bread, a couple of food items and some cat treats. I went to the nearest one, a Waitrose outlet a mile or two away. I arrived about 1930, half an hour before closing time. Few customers, but an innovation: outside the wide-open doors, two security men, young and dressed entirely in black. Woollen hats, padded jackets, scarfs wound around neck, covering the lower face. Armbands. Exactly like the militia in the TV series, The Handmaid’s Tale. They lacked only the weapons. They are, it seems, Waitrose “marshals”.

Inside, bought 2 scratchcards (both modest winners, as it turned out), but at first my cash was refused. All part of the new hygiene regime. Card only.

I was curious to see whether the shelves were still being stripped bare. Most bread had gone, though there were a few of the less popular (and more expensive) types available: stoneground rye, sourdough etc. Eggs were very plentiful. Flour seemed to be unavailable. Pasta available, though only the slightly more expensive Italian-made stuff in blue and yellow packing; little of the cheaper “Essential Waitrose” pasta. Pasta sauces mostly gone, though the more expensive Lloyd Grossman jars were there (over £2 compared to £1 for the cheapest Waitrose own-brand line). I bought one jar. Puttanesca. Everything else seemed to be available for those wanting it, even loo paper (only the more expensive brands, though). I found the cat treats. No shortage.

I noticed that fruit, vegetables and everything else that I looked at in passing seemed to be in supply.

My conclusion from that and my drive around yesterday: the supermarkets are gradually getting on top of the bulk-buying/panic-buying wave. People are still doing it, but less so. There must be some people around here sitting on mountains of dried pasta, pasta sauce jars, bread and loo paper. I also noticed that people are obviously not buying the pasta to eat immediately, because there was plenty of fresh pasta for sale.

Anyway, that’s my story…

On the way back, a car would not wait for me at a junction and drove off at speed. A few minutes later, I saw a blue light in my rear-view mirror (when I was learning to drive, belatedly, at age 42, the instructor said that one of my faults as a driver was that I looked in the rear-view mirror more than I looked out of the windshield!). Anyway, I turned off to avoid any contact. Only a few seconds later, the police flashed past down the deserted rural A-road. Were they after that other driver? Was he a suspected Coronavirus “non-essential” driver? Had he been heard humming an Alison Chabloz song about “holocaust” fakery? We shall never know…

Watched a topical film on ITV2: Contagion, about an infectious virus that starts with bats in China, and then gets into the food chain, finally being transmitted person to person until millions are killed all over the world. Wait, wasn’t that the TV news? Oh, no, it was “just a film”…More seriously, I was slightly surprised that an alarming (though well-made) film like that was broadcast at a time like this.

Midnight music…
