Note how many tweets and tweeters have been removed by Twitter (Jewish-Zionist) censorship since I wrote that blog post a year ago.

OK, but from another perspective, those Ukrainian civilians are not being treated at all brutally, no more than would be a protest crowd in London; arguably, far less brutally. Russian weaponry may incite fear, but the soldiers themselves do not, it seems.

As previously blogged, the Boris-idiot government will make sure that everything wrong in Britain for years to come will be blamed on Russia and Putin. For one thing, all the money wasted on two years of “panicdemic” propaganda and useless, pointless, “measures” (lockdowns, shutdowns, “furlough” payments, billions in fraudulent “loans”, tens of billions on completely useless “test and trace” etc), and consequent inflation caused by erosion of the real value of the pound sterling. Now we read that inflation may top 10% in a year. That is the fault of this government, not Putin’s.

…and soon, even to say these things online is going to be made a crime, via the Online Harms Bill/Act.

An evil little monkey.

Can you believe that the Western world is led by the USA, which is “led” by idiots of the Pelosi sort, and by Biden, a demented old fellow who can hardly get the day of the week right? Not that the UK is any better: Boris-idiot, Liz Truss, shopworn Indian “clever boy” Sunak, Priti Patel, Sajid Javid, Ben Wallace (etc). Hardly any are really even British.

Very interesting, and very true.

Ukraine

A few more thoughts.

As Kiev inhabitants continue to flee, the food stocks in Kiev will last longer than the 2+ weeks predicted by Zelensky. How long they will last, though, is almost anyone’s guess. I presume that the defending forces will have stocks for far longer than the civilian population.

I have been looking at Google Maps and Google Earth to see the layout of Kiev, a city which I have never visited. I see not just the river Dnieper, but other streams, marshes etc. Approach from the northeast and east is difficult. The Dnieper cannot easily be bridged almost immediately south of Kiev because of the width of the river (dammed in several places for hydroelectricity). The same is true immediately north of the city. There is one crossing on the northern outskirts.

There have been isolated missile strikes in Kiev, probably to frighten the population into leaving.

I note a strange fact: despite the Russian forces having done huge damage to some of the Ukrainian cities, there has been no attack on Russian cities (except in the disputed Donbass area) by Ukrainian/Kiev-regime forces.

To me, that indicates either that the Kiev regime simply has no forces capable of attacking the small Russian towns near the border (Donetsk, a major city, is right on the border of Russia but on the notionally “Ukrainian” side), or that Zelensky is trying to maintain the “victim” narrative, i.e. that Russian forces are attacking civilians, but that the Ukrainian forces are not (except in Donetsk and the Donbass generally).

In colloquial terms, Zelensky has “played a blinder” in terms of international public relations. He is perceived now, in much of the West, not as a Jew clown, and as the figurehead puppet-on-a-stick of an ultra-wealthy and corrupt Jewish cabal, and with a $40,000,000 home in Florida (and God knows how much in offshore bank accounts), but as the brave Tribune of the People, a people under merciless attack by a ruthless and powerful enemy.

Ukraine has public relations but (it seems) scarcely any army, navy, or air force.

That tentative conclusion is supported by the fact that no attack was made on the now-famous “40-mile-long” Russian column north of Kiev. Even a defensive fortress-Kiev plan would, surely, allow for attacks on supply columns and the like?

Put simply, that column was not attacked because there was no-one to attack it.

Despite the huge destruction in Kharkov and in the smaller southern cities, I think that Putin wants Kiev to fall without too much damage, if possible. He may even have some idea of repopulating it with Russians, on a permanent basis.

Having said that, my assessment has been and remains that, if Putin can only “win” by flattening every city in Ukraine, he will do it.

I do not claim that it is original to call that ship’s operator the Border Farce, but it is certainly the case.

I think we know in our hearts that, somewhere down the line, the results of all this will have to be dealt with harshly, come what may.

Largely a result of the 30+ years of poverty and its consequences, under a succession of Jewish-Zionist-dominated cabal “governments”.

In the circumstances, £350 a month to house some refugees seems a modest-enough amount as “danger money”…

Facemask nonsense

Went to a small town today. Saw a few very elderly (even by my standards!) people still wearing facemasks, poor old things. They obviously not only believed all the propaganda but also have not realized that the world has moved on…

Ironic that the Conservative Party withdrew after a few days its only true election poster, the “Devil Eyes” one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Labour,_New_Danger

Wise words, the voice of brief but bitter experience. When I was in Southern Africa (Rhodesia and Botswana) for a while in 1977, I met a number of people with varied military experience around the world: British ex-Marines and Paras, American ex-U.S. Rangers, ex-U.S. Marines and others, the odd New Zealander, some South Africans, and a Portuguese who had fought against Frelimo in Mozambique; even an Israeli.

I recall one Brit, conventional military provenance unknown but (I think) genuine or real, telling people his experiences fighting with the notorious “Colonel” Callan (in fact a Greek Cypriot and former Parachute Regiment corporal) in Angola in 1976. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costas_Georgiou.

According to the said British person, there were wannabee mercenaries from the UK, with no military experience at all, who had been flown to Africa, signed up to the FNLA “army”, given weapons and uniforms, and then pretty much turned out into the field, into battle, fighting experienced African communist/nationalist guerrilla fighters and Cuban Army units.

Apparently, many of the Brit “mercenaries” did not even know enough to get themselves down on the ground when the enemy opened fire! Many were killed not very long after arrival, massacred in contacts with MPLA or Cuban units in the long grass of Southern Africa.

Oddly enough, the Brit telling the story defended “Callan” (plainly a murderous psychopath, who by mid-1976 had been captured, then tried and executed in Loanda), saying that he would get angry because some of the British would-be mercenaries refused to fight.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luanda_Trial.

Whatever the truth of the above, the fact is that many Brits and others are now volunteering for war service with the Kiev regime. Some may have good though misguided motivations, others may scent loot. Those with little battle experience may not last very long.

Incidentally, two of the socialist “international observers” at that trial were Jack Dromey and Stephen Sedley.

The first, then a heavily-bearded and fierce militant, married Harriet Harman six years later and, like her, became an MP and Blairite government minister: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Dromey.

Stephen Sedley, a barrister, was later Sir Stephen, and a Lord Justice of Appeal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sedley. I myself appeared in front of him as Counsel a couple of times, when he sat as a judge of the High Court in the 1990s.

[Dresden, 1945, after Allied bombing]

Ukraine

This situation has been building up for years. There was an understanding, when the Soviet Union collapsed or, more accurately, faded away, that NATO would not expand its membership or operations.

NATO, after all, only existed in the first place as a solidification of the Western alliance of the Second World War, and then only because of the massive Soviet military presence both in the western Soviet Union itself and also in Eastern and Central Europe: the “Pribaltika” (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Poland, the DDR/East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and, until 1955, Austria (the last foreign troops occupying Austria left in 1955). NATO was established in 1949, the Warsaw Pact in 1955 (after West Germany joined NATO). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Pact.

The USA (really NWO) also established the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) on the other side of the Eurasian landmass.

[“NATO has added 14 new members since German reunification and the end of the Cold War“—Wikipedia]

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist (formally in 1991, but in reality from 1989-90).

There was an opportunity in the early 1990s for a real partnership between the West and the former Soviet Union, but it failed for several reasons: among others, the wish for nominal “independence” on the part of areas that had been part of the Soviet Union and, before then, the Russian Empire; the wish on the part of “Western” companies, law firms etc to exploit Russian and other people and resources; a wish on the part of the NWO to rule Russia, in effect; the collaboration of Jew “oligarchs” with the “Western” gameplan in the Yeltsin era.

The Confederation of Independent States [“CIS”] was, unfortunately, blown apart by the combination of post-Soviet nationalism(s) (in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Georgia etc) and the infiltration of American military activities into the newly-independent states around Russia.

Some of the former satellites (Poland etc), were keen to join NATO after their experience of Soviet occupation, and effective Soviet rule, over many decades.

NATO has, since the 1980s, got involved in South-Central Asia, the Middle East etc. Far from its original geographical area and purpose. It is the NWO battering-ram.

We have seen NATO “pushing the envelope” over recent years; not only in Ukraine, but in Georgia and elsewhere. However, things have now progressed to the point at which Russia cannot accept more encroachment.

The Soviet Union had an ideology of world domination, albeit muted in latter decades. It was a serious danger to Western Europe. Russia now has no such ideology, and is basically defensive. It poses no danger to Western Europe, unless constantly provoked.

The USA is now beefing up the forces of the Kiev government, so Russia would be advised to strike earlier rather than later.

I am, by synchronous co-incidence, just re-reading one of Bentine’s memoirs, The Door Marked Summer. I did have a couple of other books by him, but they were lost, along with most of my 2,000+-book library, when I returned, unwillingly, to the UK from France in 2009.

An interesting character, whom I recall seeing on TV in the early 1970s. A man of many parts, and many talents, though with a few obsessions and, in some respects, narrowness of view. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bentine.

One of Bentine’s most interesting recounted experiences was when he and his father accompanied someone (obviously some kind of occult initiate) to a hidden place in a Kent wood at night, not long before the Second World War, and where they were greeted by the entire realm of Nature present, animals, birds, insects, and plants.

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.

The same is true of the vaccines. Whatever else may be said against or about them, there is no doubt that the mass vaccination hysteria is a form of State and societal conditioning.

Once a citizen is wearing a facemask when so ordered by System politicians expressing a mere wish (and see how many citizens are still doing it even now that the “law” no longer generally “requires” that), and once a citizen is not only having injections of what is basically an unknown substance (and so showing utter trust in the State) and as many “boosters” as ordered, and without any legal right of remedy should damage be suffered, then that citizen is a malleable robot, basically. Job done…

As I have blogged before, anyone you now see wearing a facemask in a supermarket, or shop, let alone a car park, or while cycling, or while walking in the open air, can probably be written off as a compliant serf, and probably a complete idiot as well.

Don’t let anyone tell you that the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan has been “misconstrued”. Just look around you, and at what is happening.

The scale is new but not the substance. Sometime around 1992, I was visiting an old friend, an elderly lady in Little Venice, London. We went for a walk and saw a local landmark, the Clarendon Hotel (which, incidentally, used to have an amusing notice above the entrance to its adjoining spa, “The Body Feminine— entrance at rear“!). So we decided to have a coffee there.

That hotel had been once a decent place (I think 4-star). Cricket teams playing Test cricket at the quite nearby Lords’ Cricket Ground stayed there.

In fact, I believe that the Clarendon Club, a political-historical club, whose meetings were addressed by such as David Irving [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Irving], used the hotel (I think that their name also referred back to Clarendon, the 19thC politician [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Villiers,_4th_Earl_of_Clarendon].

Imagine our confusion when, on entering that hotel, and confronting the receptionist, he seemed confused at our request for coffee and walnut cake.

It was only when we were seated in a small room near the Reception, and overlooking the road outside, that we realized that the hotel was being used as a place to warehouse immigrant asylum-seekers! The coffee and cake was nice, though. The receptionist told us that the owners were being paid well to turn their hotel into a hostel, filled with otherwise unwanted “guests”.

So “nihil novum“…but the scale, that is new.

Are NHS hospitals busy?

We hear that (supposedly due to “the virus”) the NHS is terribly busy. I doubt that. I saw a statistic that only about 1% of hospitalizations recently were because of “Covid-19”.

In the end, I cannot say. It is a question of who and what you (choose to?) believe. All I can say is that I made a visit (not as patient) to my more or less local hospital recently (not a huge general hospital) and, as on other visits in the past 18 months, the place seemed almost deserted.

One interesting thing, though. While facemasks are still mandatory, I noticed that none of the staff were zealously demanding that the mask be pulled up over the nose any more. Reality is perhaps slowly breaking through the bs.

Diary Blog, 28 February 2021, including a few thoughts about trees and forests

I happened to see a report in the Independent about trees: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/prison-green-space-trees-mental-health-b1808251.html.

As Chekhov said, either (I forget) in one of his famous works, or perhaps to Gorky, and later recounted in Gorky’s memoirs called Literary Portraits, that “there are men to whom a tree is sacred“.

[RUSSIA – JANUARY 01: Russian writers Anton Pavlovich CHEKHOV and Maxim GORKY at Yalta in 1900. (Photo by Keystone-France/Gamma-Keystone via Getty Images)]

It is hard to imagine anywhere, or any architecture, that cannot be improved by the proximity of a few trees, or which will not be impoverished if existing trees are cut down.

Trees have several enemies in modern Britain, not least local councils who often resent the cost of sweeping leaves etc. The “health and safety” aspect is sometimes brought into play, often unecessarily. Yes, occasionally, tree branches do fall on people or, more usually, parked cars, during storms or other periods of high wind. That is not a good reason to cut down trees wholesale.

Britain has relatively low tree cover, comparing the UK to other European countries by proportion. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_countries_by_forest_area. Britain’s tree cover, though greater than it was in the recent past, is still only 13%. Germany has 33%, France 36%, and Finland 73%.

There have been attempts, still continuing, to create new forests in the UK: the Heart of England Forest is one, created by the one-time Oz magazine defendant, Felix Dennis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Dennis; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_England_Forest; https://www.heartofenglandforest.com/].

Another is the National Forest: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_National_Forest_(England); https://www.nationalforest.org/

[the National Forest, northeast of Birmingham]

Britain needs more forests, more woods, more tree cover generally, eg in urban and suburban areas. The Woodland Trust, which has planted over 43 million trees over the past four or five decades, can help and even gives away saplings in some cases: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodland_Trust.

Many in the old Soviet Union, the vast majority in fact, made the same sort of compromise: unenthusiastic compliance with the regime, in order to live a quiet life, avoid penalties, and receive modest benefits such as good jobs, flats, or (for the few) travel outside Soviet borders.

This is her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Khan_(activist) (“activist” and careerist, who was a hospital pharmacist before getting into her well-paid anti-free-speech government sinecure).

If even part of her “report” were to become law and actually implemented, that is the end of even the limited free speech that now exists in the UK.

An idealized view, to be sure, but essentially accurate. Britain was a better place before migration invasion, before Zionist control of the mass media (and now even online space), before multikulti and other nonsense.

“European Housewife” was one of the most charming and unusual Twitter accounts. Historical and environmental as well as political and social. Now “suspended”. The latest victim of the war on free speech.

An old German lady told me, long ago, that “it will take a long time, but people will eventually have to face the fact that the only answer is National Socialism.

Hitler, in his Table Talk [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler%27s_Table_Talk] remarks, not far from the disastrous end of the Second World War, that National Socialism (as known) was finished, but that in maybe a century’s time, the essence of National Socialism would be reborn in another form and then would seize the world with the force of a religion. God mote it be!

Interesting. The never-ending movement of history.

Final word for tonight

Some readers of my blog may have noticed that a small group of (((trolls))) and nuisances on Twitter have recently been making untrue allegations of criminal or near-criminal behaviour by me and two other named persons.

In relation to the allegations against me specifically, I have already been forced to complain to the employer of one of the said nuisances, an NHS consultant. I may be making further complaint (regulatory and/or official) in relation to that person and others.

I am not a natural complainer (and usually ignore trolls and nuisances because of my belief in free speech), but was forced, by the harassing tweets of these individuals, to take action.

Diary Blog, 18 January 2021, including some thoughts about Universal Credit and Basic Income

“The virus”

BBC Radio 4 Today Programme: interviewee Nadhim Zahawi [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadhim_Zahawi; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadhim_Zahawi#Expenses] said that the Government is expecting 85% of the England-resident population to agree to be vaccinated in the next few months. Asked about whether it might become compulsory to be vaccinated, Zahawi (born in Baghdad to Kurdish parents, only came to the UK aged 9) said “we are not that kind of country“.

It seems that the odd-looking showoff who owns Pimlico Plumbers [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pimlico_Plumbers; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Mullins] has said that he will not employ anyone who cannot prove vaccination.

To me, the telling point is that the subject of compulsion has been raised at all. I cannot recall any previous time when it has been. What is the real agenda, bearing in mind that well over 99% of people who are infected with “Coronavirus”/”Covid-19” actually recover, most without serious ongoing problems (as far as can be seen so far)?

Another piece of news today was that there are some indications that some variants of “the virus” have mutated to the point where the vaccine(s) become ineffective. There would then have to be, presumably, further or other vaccine(s).

One asks again, what is really behind all this? The “Great Reset”? If so, how does it all play out?

Laura Kuenssberg has become steadily worse over several years; completely partisan. She is, basically, a government mouthpiece. A few years ago, I was sent information about her: part-Jew. I was unaware. I knew that she is part-German (echt German, not Jew), but it turned out that (like many UK-based journalists) she is also part-Jew.

As I have previously blogged, the whole idea of topping-up poor pay by means of State benefits is an error, completely wrongheaded. What it means is that employers can pay poverty wages, wages insufficient to live upon, and the employees paid those inadequate monies have to apply for Universal Credit merely to survive on a quite basic level.

Moreover, it means that the employers, and their profits, are being subsidised by the State, meaning by all citizens, including even those receiving State benefits! This is so because even those not paying income tax still pay other taxes: those working full-time (and many working part-time) are paying National Insurance [https://www.gov.uk/national-insurance], which is a tax by any other name; all are also paying VAT on most purchases: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Value-added_tax_in_the_United_Kingdom.

Incidentally, the standard rate at which VAT is levied has increased steadily since introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Value-added_tax_in_the_United_Kingdom#Historical_rates.

What that all means is, inter alia, that those receiving Universal Credit are actually partly paying for that themselves, because most are paying not only VAT but also National Insurance.

The answer is twofold: firstly, the State should pay a measure of Basic Income to all persons whose income falls below a certain level. How much? Hard to say off the cuff, but about £100 per week seems right, as a minimum.

Secondly, there must be a higher minimum wage set. How high? Again, hard to say exactly, but £10 a hour seems about right.

Enforcement of the minimum wage also needs to be stepped up.

The devil is very much in the detail in such matters, of course. Housing Benefit is another can of worms. It may be that Housing Benefit should be eliminated, and the slack taken up by a much higher Basic Income. Expensive? Yes, but so is the whole “welfare” sector, with its “assessments”, snooping, intricate administration etc; of that, not the least pertains to Housing Benefit.

Shameful. Ironic though, that so many of the Twitter-twits have reposted the above graphic while at the same time arguing for even more immigrants to enter the UK, thus depressing pay further, thus straining public services further. The self-described “Left” have nothing to offer, any more than have the finance-capitalists (who also want more immigration). Only social-national policies can beat and cut a path out of the jungle.

Diary Blog, 8 April 2020

An interesting video, worth watching:

This video is not merely about vaccination (nb. I myself am not an “anti-vaxxer”, by any means), but about large-scale transnational changes taking place around us.

A few basic thoughts I have had over the years about a possible “33-year cycle”

1923: seeds of WW2, as in Italy…the March on Rome (late Oct. 1922) and Mussolini asked to become Prime Minister (October/November 1922); the invasion of Corfu (1923) ; Russian Empire becomes the Soviet Union on 30 December 1922; in Germany, the Beer Hall Putsch of November 1923; hyperinflation across Germany (1923, though inflation in Germany had been increasing from 1921).

1956: Suez Crisis, when Israel joined with UK and France against Nasser; this was the start of the Arab/West conflict in the modern era; Khrushchev’s Secret Speech denouncing Stalinism (in which he was himself one of the worst offenders), leading to the Thaw, and eventually (not in a straight line) the total collapse of Sovietism; also, the first big rebellion of the satellites, the 1956 Hungarian Uprising; final end of WW2 rationing in the UK and start of consumerist UK in 1955-56; [and my own birth];

1989: the fall of all kinds of socialism and even social democracy worldwide, inc. effective fall of the Soviet Union (officially 1991), fall of Berlin Wall, Chinese transition to full capitalism behind “Communist” facade; Cuba becomes effectively private enterprise after 1989; also, the NWO/Israeli attack on the powerful states of the Arab world starts in Iraq; in the UK, the end of Thatcher’s rule leads to Labour Party abandonment of “socialism” even in its party constitution;
Also, George Bush snr. proclaims the NWO openly in early 1990;

2022: [personal note: I shall be 66 on 2 September 2022]

It will be noted that these years also link themes: 20thC socialism, the Arab/Muslim v. “West” situation etc.

A few of today’s tweets

Let’s start with a typical Twitter conformist, tweeting typically —and typically meaninglessly (the police who ride around in jeeps and cruise up and down empty motorways, or fly drones over national parks, are of course not “putting their lives on the line”):

I just noticed that this odd-looking creature has no less than 551,000 Twitter followers. She must be one of the ever-growing mob of “celebrities” and the temporarily famous.

Ah, God bless Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Spraggan  Seems that she is a lesbian singer who nearly won the TV talent contest, X Factor, in 2012. I myself had never heard of her, but that is not her fault; pop singers and talent shows are not my milieu.

So what other tweets are being sent out today?

Sweden has not had a “lockdown” so far, and it looks as if it will not have one. It has also, as far as I know, not had a Swedish equivalent of Britain’s “clap for the NHS” either. Not that most nurses and doctors (etc) in the NHS do not “deserve” a clap (and a decent pay rise) for their valuable work, but for the virtue-signallers of Twitter what seems to matter is the almost enforced “me-too-ism” (cf. Poppy Day and its surrounds).

https://www.thelocal.se/20200228/coronavirus-the-everyday-precautions-to-take-if-youre-in-sweden

Hitchens is of course right here. The economy of the UK, of the EU, of much of the world, cannot in fact be shut down indefinitely without almost everyone in this country starving to death eventually. A “lockdown” must of necessity be temporary. The first question is “how temporary?”

The problem with comparing the Coronavirus situation in the UK to that obtaining in USA, Sweden, Italy, China etc is that

  • every country has different demographics, lifestyles, transport, health services etc;
  • every country is collecting statistics differently (e.g. as to what is a “Coronavirus” death in the first place): to take a reductio ad absurdum example, if someone has flu and Coronavirus, is his/her death from Coronavirus or simply with Coronavirus? What about if someone has Coronavirus, feels unwell and, perhaps even as a result, crashes his/her car and dies?;
  • every country has a different level of testing in place. Some test only those in hospital, some test medical staff, some (e.g. the UK until now at least) test hardly anyone.

The result is that, in looking at “the statistics”, we are comparing apples and oranges.

Is the UK a “free country” any more?

Silly question (of course it isn’t).

First of all we had all the “race relations”, “community relations” etc laws, then came the crackdown on other freedoms, including Internet freedoms, mostly at the behest of the Jewish lobby. Now the System is experimenting to see how far can it go in restricting quite ordinary daily activity, such as a motorcyclist going for a spin, or a family walking across the Derbyshire moors. The Coronavirus is being used as a fine cover story for a dry run for total System tyranny (though the Coronavirus situation iself is bad enough, of course). The mass media have ceased even to try to question government policy (as was also seen throughout the 2010-2019 “austerity” repression. Same now:

The Underground travellers (who probably have little choice) being blamed, impliedly, for crowding the trains, when, as we have seen, the trains are crowded because people like NHS staff still need to travel, and because that hopeless little Pakistani, Sadiq Khan, reduced the number of trains being run.

Dictatorships and tyrannies have had sycophant newspapers for a couple of hundred years, radio since about 1920, TV stations since (for this purpose) the 1950s. A new element is the online mob, particularly on Twitter; happy to be slaves of the System if they can hate the targeted dissenters.

In view of the fact that North West London is a major “hotspot” for Coronavirus, as are parts of Paris and certain urban parts of Israel, it might be more accurate to say that the spread of this virus comes not from “antisemitism” but from a quite different direction…

Imagine if I hit the Euromillions and put in to the administrators or eventual liquidators the only bid for whatever is left of the Jewish Chronicle! Ha ha! I wonder what I could put on the front page once I become the new proprietor? Something historical?

I could even have a section devoted to historical revision. Alison Chabloz writes nicely…

Maybe Pollard would agree to stay on as Editor (under suitable supervision and control, of course…), if I were to make him an offer he would be unable to refuse…

I just thought of another good aspect to the Jewish Chronicle closing down: Stephen Applebaum, Twitter troll (who secretly, using pseudonyms, trolled quite a few anti-Zionists, mostly women, with equally horrible Stephen Silverman and other “Campaign Against Antisemitism” bastards), will now find it even harder to pose as a soi-disant “film critic”. As far as I know, the Jewish Chronicle has been the only newspaper to print his occasional reviews for years.

(“@grubstreetsteve” is his present personal Twitter account, along with “@rattus2384”).

Ha ha!

It even looks like Pollard! But if the cap fits, Applebaum too…

Quite a few Jew scribblers —including several connected with the Jewish Chronicle—enjoyed my being disbarred in 2016 (no doubt in ignorance of the fact that I had in any case ceased active Bar practice in 2007-2008). Not all will now lose their jobs, livelihoods, maybe even houses and flats, but some will. As for the rest, their time will come.

Example:

A sad day“…not for me! Bye!…

Ha ha! Just what I needed on a day like this (a boring day, and me living under a “Conservative” pseudo-communitarian ZOG semi-dictatorship)! A boost like no other! I begin to see, in minor key, why people always said that Saddam Hussein was never so happy as when his enemies were being killed off! Well, some of mine are not being killed off, just losing jobs etc, but in times like these, one must take one’s pleasures where one can.

I still like the idea of winning the Euromillions jackpot and then buying the rump of the Jewish Chronicle! I could staff it with anti-Zionist Jews, the ones the Zionist Jews hate: Gilad Atzmon could do the show business stuff, while the commentator-at-large might be…hm, let’s see…Mira bar Hillel!

Coronavirus view from Israel

“Israeli virologist urges world leaders to calm public, slams ‘unnecessary panic’

‘People think this virus is going to attack them all, and then they’re all going to die,’ says Prof. Jihad Bishara. ‘Not at all. In fact, most of those infected won’t even know it’”

https://www.timesofisrael.com/israeli-virologist-urges-world-leaders-to-calm-public-slams-unnecessary-panic/

Well, he sounds as though he knows all about it…

A leading Israeli virologist on Sunday urged world leaders to calm their citizens about the coronavirus pandemic, saying people were being whipped into unnecessary panic.

Prof. Jihad Bishara, the director of the Infectious Disease Unit at Petah Tikva’s Beilinson Hospital, said that some of the steps being taken in Israel and abroad were very important, but the virus is not airborne, most people who are infected will recover without even knowing they were sick, the at-risk groups are now known, and the global panic is unnecessary and exaggerated.

That’s not the way it is at all. It’s not in the air. Not everyone [who is infected] dies; most of them will get better and won’t even know they were sick, or will have a bit of mucus.”

But in Israel and around the world, “everybody is whipping everybody else up into panic — the leaders, via the media, and the wider public — who then in turn start to stress out the leaders. We’ve entered some kind of vicious cycle.”

He urged the public to internalize that “we’re talking about a virus that is not airborne. Infection is via droplet transmission… Only if you are close to someone who has the virus, and you get the saliva when he sneezes or coughs, can you get ill. And if you don’t then maintain personal hygiene,” primarily by washing hands.

Referring to Italy’s national lockdown, he said that “quarantine is an effective precaution, but there has to be temperate use. You can shut down a whole country, but there are other means.”

At this stage, he said, “we know how the virus behaves, how it spreads, and which groups are in danger. We know now that his virus is primarily dangerous to old people, and to people with a history of chronic disease, and those who are immunocompromised.”

[The Times of Israel]

By the way, if anyone is surprised that I quote an Israeli in my blog, my response is “why not?”

If I want a great performance of Rachmaninov, I might turn to Vladimir Ashkenazi, if I want one of J.S. Bach, I might choose Evgeny Kissin; if Chopin, Emanuel Ax…

So long as “they” do not hold power, all is well. In fact the professor I quoted is, though Israeli, not a Jew, but the principle holds good. https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-arabs-in-israel-fight-pandemic-as-first-class-doctors-but-second-class-citizens-1.8681493

The Countess and the Russian Billionaire

Just watched the above-named documentary. The main character was Alexandra Tolstoy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra_Tolstoy], an adventuress of several sorts, married to but estranged from Sergei Pugachev [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Pugachev], a former “banker” and criminal “businessman”, who is now on the [Russian] wanted list for having allegedly made off with about a billion US dollars’ worth of State assets.

Pugachev is in fact a slightly unusual Russian gangster-businessman, in that he really is Russian (not Jew or whatever). Looks like a “tough guy”, but if the question is whether to bet on a exiled tough guy or the Russian state, I know where my money is going…

Oddly enough, I once met the father of Alexandra Tolstoy, who is the interesting writer Nikolai Tolstoy, a former cavalry officer of the British Army [perhaps so only briefly; Wikipedia says nothing of it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai_Tolstoy]. I was introduced to him in 1981 or 1982 (I think 82) at the Russian Refugees jumble sale at Chelsea Old Town Hall in the King’s Road (the sale is or was a Russian New Year tradition going back to the Russian Revolution(s) and Civil War, when many anti-Bolshevik Russians came to the UK penniless).

A friend of mine flew to Switzerland with Nikolai Tolstoy not long before that, in order to help with information for his book, Stalin’s Secret War. That would have been 1980 or 1981.

As for my impression of the lady in the documentary, perhaps I should not say, but after all she did volunteer to be judged by the TV public…Well, to me she seems as thick as two short planks, for one thing. As to why she divorced her first husband and married Pugachev, I think that a good deal of the answer, probably 90% or 80%, was his wealth, at a mere guess. She has dead eyes.

As for her being too bored in France, it is clear that, for her, the world revolves around London, Harrods, Harvey Nicholl’s and her no doubt equally empty-headed friends. Her children too, of course…

Alexandra Tolstoy seems to want us to feel sorry for her, though she could well have simply continued to live in a beautiful belle epoque place on the Cote d’Azur, with her children, and her husband (and his guard force). I have seen too many people really suffering in the UK and elsewhere (including the former Soviet Union) from lack of quite modest funds to feel sorry for a woman who has a “cottage” (actually a quite decent modest house) in middle England, not to mention her parents’ place, a nice house in a pleasant part of Oxfordshire with an outside swimming pool (the pool was not shown in the documentary).

I certainly do not believe that she is in any danger at all from Putin or the Russian state. If she herself felt in danger, she would not now be once again running tours to the former Soviet republics in Central Asia, and herself visiting those republics.

Pugachev? He may be in more danger. There are warrrants out for him in Russia, and if he sets foot in the UK, a warrant for his committal to prison (for 2 years) for contempt of a High Court order. If the Russians get him, though, he may end up, like his 18th Century namesake, in a cage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pugachev%27s_Rebellion#Defeat
