This is not something about which I have strong feelings either way, but one does not have to turn to the Old Testament to see that liaisons between older men and younger women, even with age gaps of 20 or 30 years, are not uncommon in many parts of the world. In fact, they are not terribly unusual even in the UK and other parts of Europe today. Some such liaisons are sanctified by marriage rituals, others take place covertly.
What occurs to me is that the attitudes of society, at least in the UK, and perhaps mainly among the kind of people who scribble for newspapers, have changed. Today, in the UK, as compared to, say, the UK of the 1970s, 1950s, or 1850s, an approved msm figure (David Hare is Sir David Hare) can describe an age-gap relationship as “disgusting” and “wrong“, but woe betide anyone who used such a description to describe (or condemn) a sexual relationship between two men, or two women, or between persons of radically different races or nationalities…
In the end, this is a question to which (in my opinion) there is no “answer”, except that given by individuals, and also by the society in which those individuals live. I do not think that there is one right answer for all places and all times.

I agree —in part— with Hare about the way in which the BBC gradually lost its Reithian “inform, educate, and entertain” basis.
Hare says that “news” (much of it the BBC acting as a government mouthpiece) has displaced everything else. I hear what Hare says about that, but for me, while I can agree with what he says about BBC News, the BBC long ago put “entertainment” (and pathetically poor much of it is) before the informing and educating of the public.
Whatever. The BBC is now pretty poor and possibly unsalvageable without the sacking of most of its staff.
In fact, the kefuffle at Sussex University, and the general madness around “trans” this or that, is what happens when the anti-free-speech genie is let out of the bottle…
It seems that the Welsh Government is going to continue to force people in Wales to wear facemasks (and to work from home) until 2022. I think that central (UK) government should cut what amounts to its subsidy to Wales. They (the Welsh Government, not the people) want to make choices that make Wales less efficient? Fine, but the UK will not subsidize the economic consequences of those choices.
Translation: “I hate free speech and freedom of expression by those who stand up for European race and culture.”
I have to admit that I had never heard of Mark Drakeford. The sort of person who, before devolution, would have been something like a county councillor, rather than “First Minister” of the Welsh “Government”.
Great. The Police and Crime Commissioner for Wales is himself little better than a fraudster…
Reverting to the ridiculous Drakeford (purported) decree, what possible use can it be to insist that shops only sell “essential” items? Is the hope that fewer people will bother to go to shops? “Essential” is not even defined. Will we once more have police personnel checking purchases? In what little Welsh world will that prevent “Coronavirus” infection? It’s just mad.
So when the Welsh economy completely collapses, which cannot be far away anyway after the stupid 6-month “lockdown” (shutdown) imposed by Boris-idiot, who will pick up the pieces financially? The English taxpayer?
Thing is, you give silly little people like this Mark Drakeford real powers, and then they cannot exercise them usefully or intelligently. They have neither the background nor the common sense and intelligence. “Decrees” are made which are senseless.
Look at his other recent “decrees”, e.g. that people cannot travel from some parts of England to Wales. How is that even enforceable? It isn’t…
This whole “virus” panic in the UK and by that I mean the Boris-idiot “laws”, “rules”, and “advice” (and the way in which the police have acted as a poundland KGB militia) has damaged the rule of law, possibly permanently. You have a government that believes in power and only power, untrammeled by law. What do they think will be done to them should they ever be in the power of a dictator?
I had never heard of The Chop until the malicious Jew-Zionist cabal known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” started screaming about it recently. I also have effectively no interest in woodworking. Oh, well, now “they” have managed to have The Chop chopped, thus spoiling the innocent pleasure of many people. It’s what “they” do best. That should give a nice little boost to “antisemitism”…
So…what percentage of guests on TV shows should be professional criminals? 1%? 2%? More? What percentage should be xyz? Based on recent elections etc, maybe 10% of TV guests should be social nationalists. Will never happen. Well, only when we purge the msm and the swine now running TV stations, and profiting from all the decadence.
China. USA. The only powers of importance, or would be, had Russia no nuclear weapons.
The System msm is now puffing Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, as Prime Minister in Waiting, just as they puffed Boris-idiot for years. Take a look at the recent tweets of, for example, John Rentoul. They can see that “Boris” is not only incompetent (so was David Cameron-Levita, so was Theresa May) but looks it. Answer? Replace “Boris” before too long. Anyway, if that fails, the Labour Party is once again (((occupied))) territory, so if necessary Keir Starmer will do what the System wants.
You would imagine that Labour Party “socialism” had been a great success “up North” in recent decades…
If the Labour Party is so wonderful, why did the voters of 2019 abandon Labour (mostly in fact not voting “Conservative” but more usually just abstaining)?
As for “Comrade Geordie”, his heroes are thus: “heroes Bruce Lee , Tony Benn, Clem Attlee, Trotsky Marx Engels.” An idiot…
Here below is another not atypical example:
For “Corbyn’s Jewish Cat”, “@ChampagneDosser”, the UK is “a shithole”, which he intends to improve by smuggling in blacks and browns, i.e. completely useless hordes, who mostly hate us as well as want to leech on us. I agree with him on one thing only, about those who combine the Israeli flag with the Union Jack on their Twitter profiles…
Another idiot, in short…
The radio announcement of the death of Adolf Hitler
Quite often, the revolutionaries on the ground are not theorists, philosophers or theologians; often disruptive social dissidents, angry young —or old— people, or even criminals of a sort…
Those following the progress of the latest ridiculous prosecution of satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz should be aware that her trial (and application to dismiss the charges) has been adjourned, on Crown Prosecution Service application, until 17 November 2020. May victory be hers.
So far, the msm is promoting Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak for his largesse with public funds and his schemes to somehow keep large parts of the poisoned economy alive. In fact, it is telling that several Conservative Party MPs have coyly implied that Sunak would be better at being PM than irrelevant poseur Boris-idiot.
“Boris” is like a faded entertainer whose jokes are now falling flat and who, having been a major draw, is reduced to treading the boards in the provinces. While Sunak was expounding his rather underwhelming ideas and new policies in the Commons, “Boris” was inspecting police recruits at some place in East Anglia.
Not so sure about the “great“, but the article in question is important at this time, and Hitchens himself is at least willing to see what is happening, as many in the msm either turn a blind eye or fall in behind the System.
The SNP is a phenomenon. A faux-“nationalist” party which has succeeded in gaining power not because of its own merits but because there was nothing much opposing it.
The Scottish public was sold the idea that much of Britain’s North Sea oil was really Scotland’s North Sea oil…a doubtful (though not completely implausible) proposition, looking at the geography and the Law of the Sea as it applies to Exclusive Economic Zones [EEZs]:
The Scottish seats at Westminster then numbered 71, later increased to 72 but reduced from 2005 to 59. The SNP’s 11 MPs in 1974 remained the high-water mark until the SNP’s huge breakthrough in 2015, when the SNP under Nicola Sturgeon suddenly had 56 out of those 59. In 2010, the SNP had had elected only 6 MPs.
After decline to 35 MPs in 2017, the SNP (as I predicted) surged again to 48 MPs in 2019.
In fact, the apparent landslide does not reflect the views of the public very well. FPTP voting distortion. Even in 2015, when the SNP got 56 out of 59 Westminster seats, its vote-share was no more than 50%. In 2019, that was only 45%, yet the SNP has 48 out of 59 seats.
The SNP rose up for several reasons. Firstly because “it was there”; it existed. People cannot vote for a party that does not exist.
Secondly, the Scottish Labour Party, so long dominant, collapsed after years of complacency and corruption. The name that comes to mind is that of Jim Murphy, a complete System puppet. He got his first “real job”(sort-of…working for Scottish Labour!) at the age of 30! He had been a student for 12-13 years without even managing to get a degree!
The Murphy fiasco was symptomatic of a party totally out of touch. It had thrown away “socialism” in stages after 1990; by the time Murphy became leader in 2014, Scottish Labour stood for almost nothing but the Union with England, as well as a continuation of a failed society and economy.
Scottish Labour has had three more leaders since 2015, none of which has troubled national attention.
Scottish Labour (until 1994 simply part of the —UK— Labour Party) had been first-placed in Scotland in all general elections from 1922. The party was only placed second in 2015, third in 2017 and fourth in 2019. A stunning collapse. The popular vote share fell from 42% in 2010 to 18.6% in 2019. 41 MPs out of 59 in 2010, 1 MP in 2015, briefly 7 MPs in 2017, only to fall back to 1 MP in 2019.
It might be objected that Scottish Labour can still come back. I cannot see how. Recent surveys indicate that, as with Conservative Party support in England, Scottish Labour Party voters are mostly elderly people. A diminishing asset.
In the Scottish Parliament too, Scottish Labour has steadily declined, from 56 seats out of 129 in 1999 to 24 in 2016. The SNP currently has 63 MSPs.
What about the other Scottish parties? The Scottish LibDems now have 4 Westminster MPs out of 59 (11 in 2019, and 1 in 2015); in the Scottish Parliament, another steady decline, 17 out of 129 in 1999, 5 out of 129 now (2016 election).
The Scottish Conservatives declined steadily from 1955 to 1997 (no MPs at all were elected in 1997, and the party then had only one until 2017, when 13 were elected); presently, the Conservatives hold 6 Westminster seats out of 59. The Scottish Conservatives have increased their Holyrood representation: 18 MSPs in 1999, 15 in 2011, but 31 out of 129 in 2016.
The pattern is clear overall. The SNP came up in the 2010-2015 period because the other main parties were seen as declining entities with little to offer. The SNP may now be a fake “nationalist” elected dictatorship North of the Border, and rather incompetent to boot, but there is no obvious sign of challenge as far as Westminster elections are concerned.
In England, we see that Labour has floundered, that the Conservative Party is disastrous (too) and “won” in 2019 by default, with the LibDems on their last legs, but what does not exist in England (or Wales) is any semblance of a new or insurgent and upcoming party.
In Wales, Plaid Cymru is hampered not only because it is not really “nationalist”, but because Wales would be a very very poor little land had it to pay for itself as an “independent” state. Indeed, there is every chance that the Welsh economy will submerge further in 2020 and 2021.
In England proper, there is no real social-national party at all. If one were to exist, the next few years, as the economy crashes, as Brexit is mishandled and ruined, and as mass immigration continues, could be the years of triumph.

In fact, others did speak out, but they were, like me, not msm-approved scribblers and talking heads. I do not even have a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had Twitter expel me in 2018).
Generally speaking, the higher the proportion of European or European-ancestry people that exists in any given country, the better, overall, that country is.
That corrupt little pissant, Robert Jenrick, is in the news again, and as before for the wrong reasons:

Oh, what a surprise. Not. I have been raging against Boris-idiot for about 10 or more years, on Twitter since 2011 and in this blog since late 2016. My influence as yet is small, and it has felt at times like a hopeless struggle against the msm talking heads and scribblers, who have been pushing this completely unfitted vanity machine for about two decades. In fact, the unmerited “triumph” of “Boris” shows how powerful msm propaganda is when it comes to “the moronic masses”…(cf. facemasks and “Coronavirus” fear propaganda in general).
Talking of “the moronic masses”…here we have a British population which, faced with an epidemic that, in the UK, has killed about 1 in 2,000 of the population (and worldwide, about 1 in 8,000), has allowed itself to be scared to death. The majority, or at least about half, of the population seem to want to be locked in their homes, forced to wear facemask muzzles, prevented from going out or going anywhere much, so long as the State funnels some more money their way. As Shakespeare might say, “ay, there’s the rub“, for that money is, ultimately, the resource available by reason of a functioning economy.
No economy = no money. Not immediately. The Government can borrow, and is borrowing. At present, at advantageous rates. Borrowing to invest in people and projects is often good as a policy; to borrow merely to sustain a failing range of industries and companies, or to pay people’s bills, is not a good policy, and will be disastrous in the end.
Ha ha! Fanatical UK-based Jews think that they can hound their critics worldwide! In most countries, the repressive laws of the UK are not replicated, and in some (eg USA) there are safeguards for free speech.
