Saturday quiz

This week I did not do so well: 4/10, same as political journalist John Rentoul. I only knew the answers to questions 2, 4, 9, and 10 (the same ones that John Rentoul got right). I would have got No. 3 —the “Northern tart” question— right too, but I just could not recall it.

From the newspapers

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2023/jan/20/sajid-javid-calls-for-patients-to-pay-for-gp-and-ae-visits

LIttle pro-Israel monkey-on-a-stick Sajid Javid wants to charge patients for seeing a GP or visiting A&E departments.

He himself is standing down at the next general election. If it becomes widely known that charging for NHS services is the “Conservative” Party direction of travel, the already-anticipated loss of Conservative Party seats might be historically large, even if the NHS is not performing properly at present.

Incredible that parts of the msm are still promoting the “Bootstrap Cook”.

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions“, as we know. The proposed rules no doubt aim at giving the American “poor” a better diet instead of the diabetes-2-tending (and generally unhealthy) one that includes white bread and “American cheese” [a particular kind of processed cheese sold to the public as “Kraft slices” etc: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_cheese].

The particular type of cheese disapproved of includes what is or was called “Government cheese” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_cheese].

The price, though, is freedom of choice; and the other restrictions, such as “one car per family”, are obviously repressive, though of course in many countries only the wealthier part of the population(s) have even one car. Poverty is relative.

“Bootstrap Cook” has raised only one person out of “poverty”— herself (and quite possibly not even that).

Both true, and that is before you even think about “Bono”, Bob Geldof etc…

As the psychiatrist in one episode of Fawlty Towers remarks, “there’s enough material there for an entire conference“.

More accurately, “it” may be defamatory but, if “true”, is not actionable defamation.

That “@blackwolfski” tweeter is just so typical of those who have a whole fake worldview of “woke”-ism. Akin to wearing a jacket of msm lies: supports “Jack Monroe”, Jacinda Ardern, Labour Party drones etc, and is entirely impervious to any “unapproved” truths. Note the faux-serenity and faux-“concern” of his (fake, “passive-aggressive”) good wishes to tweeter “@scbusiness4”.

Hard to judge to what extent that was so but, if accurate, it sounds like very bad behaviour (to say the least).

Tweeter “@jimellis123” is another very typical “Jack Monroe” supporter-type: the man of 50+ or 60+, retired or unemployed (as it seems), not seemingly poor or “struggling” (except possibly with mental “issues”); socio-politically— narrow-minded. Also, the “passive-aggressive” smugness, as seen in the tweet below:

While I do not belong to, or even converse with, Patriotic Alternative, they seem to be, at least partly, on the right path. The fact that the evil —and misnamed— “Hope not Hate” crowd are stridently opposing them is a good sign, arguably.

As for System-connected invaders (including those born in the UK), of course they will be given money, jobs, gongs etc, just as the mouthpieces of the East German (DDR) regime were…until that regime collapsed in 1989. Something for said mouthpieces (in the UK today) to reflect upon, perhaps.

Hard to believe that anyone would think that stupid, cruel, and clueless Dunce (Duncan Smith) would know “what to do”, care about the problem, or have any idea how to run anything.

£15BN is not much in governmental terms; to take one example, £38BN was completely wasted on the “test and trace” nonsense, not even including the other “panicdemic” “measures”.

Dunce Duncan Smith has never been punished for his evil actions. The same goes for his part-Jew bosses, George Osborne and David Cameron-Levita, and their many satraps.

Dunce was also an outright and literal fraudster, who got several tens of thousands of pounds annually, on his expenses, to pay his wife for work she never did. A flagrant fraud.

MPs in a corrupt Parliament of this sort understand only one thing, but I am “not allowed” (under the present repressive laws on free speech) to specify it.

In the old phrase, you get nothing for nothing…

I ask, not for the first time, does Canada not have even one person who can deal with this situation?

One wonders why, in this age of superficial iconoclasm, these antiquated figures (bishops) and organizations (churches) still command at least pro forma respect in the msm. I suppose because they always endorse every mad or evil trend the conspiracy wants, from “Black Lives Matter” and climate change via CO2 emissions, to “anti-racism” and all the other nonsense around, including the “holocaust” farrago and the “Covid” panicdemic propaganda and, of course, the “right” of women to become “priestesses” and crazed woman bishops.

A few thoughts about the hot weather

I have lived and worked in, as well as merely visited, various countries, both those which are usually hot and those which are hot only in summer: USA, Australia (where I was at school for three years), a few parts of Africa and North Africa, Turkey, the Caribbean, Kazakhstan, Russia, and of course European countries.

It is hard to come to a firm conclusion about climate from personal experience alone. That is especially true when other factors than temperature come into play: humidity, air flow, the difference (if any) between temperature in the day and after dark.

Age is certainly a factor. Children are often more accepting of hot weather, though many old people enjoy at least sunshine, if not fierce blazing heat.

For myself, I find that age makes hot weather less tolerable, especially when combined with high humidity.

Is the British weather less tolerable now, as compared to, say 1976 or other noted years? As a matter of fact, I would say that it is, possibly because the very hot weather at least seems to continue longer, indeed almost endlessly. In 1976, I was 19, so more resilient to heat than I now am, but I lived in London throughout that famous summer, and did not find it too difficult, despite its duration (longer than the present heatwaves).

I have not examined in detail the statistics of temperature etc, but we do seem to be having more hot and very hot days, days when the temperature is above not even 20C, but 25C and even 30C.

As to “climate change”, my own view is that there has been a change: Australia today, meaning Sydney and other Eastern seaboard regions with which I and my wider family are familiar, is far hotter more often than was the case in the late 1960s when I was a child there. What is driving the change is (in my view) uncertain. If it is said that CO2 emissions are the cause, then the UK or even all Europe making changes will be of only limited effect anyway. China and India are the big emitters as well as the big polluters, and they are not going to change what they do any time soon.

For me personally, I just look forward to next week, when the forecasters predict cooler weather, with rain, in southern England.

Comment seen about the World Economic Forum [WEF]

What do Macron, Johnson, Putin, Merkel, and Trudeau all have in common? They all attended WEF’s Youth Leadership program. One should be asking to what extent has Schwab infiltrated our government and all other governments around the world?” [newspaper reader’s comment]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klaus_Schwab; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum.

According to the Transnational Institute (TNI), the Forum is hence planning to replace a recognised democratic model with a model where a self-selected group of “stakeholders” make decisions on behalf of the people.[24] The think tank summarises that we are increasingly entering a world where gatherings such as Davos are “a silent global coup d’état” to capture governance.” [Wikipedia].

What does it take before the mass of people wake up to the NWO/ZOG transnational conspiracy?

This amused me:

While Schwab declared that excessively high management salaries were “no longer socially acceptable”,[19] his own annual salary of about one million Swiss Francs has been repeatedly questioned by the media.” [Wikipedia].

Incidentally, at present time of writing, a million Swiss francs equates to about £800,000 in British money.

“Lawfare”— quasi-terroristic abuse of the legal system

I happened to see this Mail on Sunday piece by Dan Hodges: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10530917/DAN-HODGES-fox-killing-lawyer-bombastic-claims-clogging-courts.html. It examines, polemically, the Good Law Project pressure group, headed by the part-Jew barrister, Jo Maugham, a tax lawyer prolific on Twitter [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolyon_Maugham].

“Lawfare”, meaning the abuse of the legal system (both criminal and civil) to achieve socio-political ends, has been in frequent play in the UK for about a decade. Behind it, mostly the Jew-Zionist, pro-Israel, element.

I am quite serious. All this “trans” nonsense has exploded the traditional demarcation between male and female competition in sport, so let’s get rid of the demarcation (and while we are about it, let’s let the “paralympians” compete against the main Olympians…). Then “Citius, altius, fortius” (“Faster, stronger, higher”), which was the “original” (modern era) motto, might then have renewed meaning.

I happened to hear some “Insulate Britain” “activist” on BBC Radio 4 PM a couple of days ago. I had not heard such a smug bastard on the radio or TV for a long time. Entirely sure of the rectitude of his cause, sure that the population as a whole needs to be told (what to believe) etc. Someone who really needs a good kicking.

The interesting thing is that all such people seem to think that doing disruptive things such as blocking the motorways will actually do something concrete to “stop climate change” or “reduce UK emissions”, when the UK only produces 1% of relevant “emissions” anyway, while China is building something like 2-3 new coal-fired power stations every week!

Some people (maybe even the same people) talk about “Little Englanders”, but there can be few so narrow in their outlook as these (supposedly) “green” activists, with their idea that blocking the M25 for a while will “save the planet”. What do they do after the protest has been filmed for TV? Get in a convoy of SUVs and go home to Stroud, or Sevenoaks, probably.

Meanwhile, China carries on building power stations, India carries on polluting, both carry on producing more Chinese and Indians, and Africans carry on breeding prolifically too. Ultimately, the problems of pollution etc are caused by too many human beings on the Earth at present.

If you or I were homeless, we would not be put in (reasonably or good-quality) hotels while teams of civil servants from central government try to find us houses and flats.

From one point of view, what is happening is madness; from another, it has method and purpose: the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan to destroy European race and culture, and to create a raceless, cultureless mass, easily manipulated and controlled by (((NWO/ZOG))).

It could be argued that a creature such as the “ISIS” groupie, Shamima Begum, is almost (though not part-European) typical in that sense: one moment she is swathed in the all-covering garments of the Dark Ages of fanatical Islam, the next moment she is chewing gum, wearing a T-shirt and a baseball cap, and might easily be seen in a shopping mall in the UK or USA (with or without a bomb).

From the point of view of the enemies of our race and culture, taking over long-established charities such as RNLI and National Trust has dual benefits: it means that those charities, with their loyal supporters and huge income streams, can be abused to trash the UK; secondly, that very fact makes the British people further lose heart that decent white culture and civilization can be maintained…

The UK msm is riddled with traitors of all sorts: former IRA supporters, supporters of Israel and Jewish terrorism, “refugees welcome” dimwits, “antifascist” idiots, anti-white European race and culture oppositionists etc.

In relation to the Greenslade matter, he was not alone in being a Fleet Street partisan for the terrorists in the 1970s.

There was a well-known part-Irish, part-Belgian, part-Jewish journalist (whose name presently escapes me), now long-deceased, who was also a columnist in London and who wrote about 30 years ago how appalled he was when, in the early 1970s, he realized how many mainstream/Fleet Street journalists reporting on the situation in Northern Ireland were strongly pro-Republican and often actually pro-IRA (Provisional IRA). This at a time when bombs were going off in London and across the UK as well as “over the water” in Northern Ireland itself.

[Addendum, 1 March 2022: re-reading this a year after having written it, the name of that anti-IRA Irish-Belgian-Jew journalist suddenly came to me: Stan Gebler Davies, described on Wikipedia as “part-Polish, part-Jewish“. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stan_Gebler_Davies; https://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/obituary-stan-gebler-davies-1424755.html].

The public were unaware how many employees of their daily “news” papers were pro-IRA.

Exactly. Some people are so black and white-minded that they say “Covid-19 is real, not a scam, so the conspiracy theory about the Great Reset is rubbish…“, when of course it is perfectly possible for “the virus” to be both real and a serious public health problem, and also being used as a convenient way of pushing through huge socio-political change via fear propaganda, financial manipulation etc. Oh, and as for the “Great Reset” being a “conspiracy theory”, it’s no theory. Indeed, the World Economic Forum [WEF; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum] actually both tweeted, and published elsewhere, the view that the virus situation was a perfect opportunity to push the Great Reset. They even used the words, “Great Reset”.

First thoughts

Saw a few minutes, on TV, of the “celebrations” by the Thames at London last night. Pure dystopian propaganda, carried out in and over an equally dystopian London, dark and deserted.

Technically, and as a spectacle, the display could not be faulted. Brilliant. What disturbed me was the content; that, and the surrounding situation.

This was not the Britain I recognize (except in fear), but a caricature; “Danny Boyle Britain”, if you like (thinking of the opening show of the 2012 London Olympics). There was the by now almost obligatory laudatory reference to the NHS. I fully support a health service free at point of use, but the NHS has become a kind of quasi-religious totem or sacred cow in the UK. You would think that nowhere else in Europe or the world has health or medical services (and that the NHS is being run properly).

Then there were other references, together with meaningless Orwellian slogans flashed into the sky: “Hope Together“, they said, “Love Together“, they said. It did not take much of a leap of imagination to see an isolated and lonely Winston Smith on the dark, almost freezing Embankment, looking upon this spectacle for the masses where the masses were absent. Or perhaps Volodin, in Solzhenitsyn’s In the First Circle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_First_Circle].

The BBC TV News propaganda megaphone this morning outdid its own (unintentional) usual irony by putting on the sub-screen tickertape, “celebrations across UK“…

The BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, like much BBC output, is now all but unlistenable (radio) and unwatchable (TV). Not only biased but boring, very very boring.

“@rattus2384” is Stephen Applebaum, a fanatical Jew-Zionist troll and one-time “film critic”, who also tweets as “@grubstreetsteve”.

Google “the Great Reset”, “the Great Replacement”, “NWO”, “ZOG”,”Bilderberg”, “World Economic Forum”, “WEF”, and “Ian Millard barrister” (and “Ian Millard WordPress”…), and you will be on the right track…

I myself do not eat meat, but were I living on Britain’s streets (and, like Hitler, I came close, a couple of times in my life), and if then I were offered food unacceptable to me, while I would not eat it (I should prefer to scavenge or steal food more acceptable to me), I should all the same be grateful that someone was interested enough to make the offer…

Incidentally, while I am not a member of, or supporter of (as such), Patriotic Alternative, and in fact have never met nor had any online contact with it, nor with any people who are in it, I do commend in outline that which they seem to be doing.

Funny but, speaking politically, with a serious edge. This might be the way to go for social nationalism in the future. “From out of the fog, we strike…“.

That sort of thing has happened before in the USA and, though rarely proven, in the UK, France and Germany; Jewish fanatics trying to prove “neo-Nazi” “antisemitism” by faking attacks on Jewish sites such as synagogues and cemeteries. It always seemed bizarre to me. Would “neo-Nazis” really waste time attacking Jews who were already dead? In fact, several Jews, over the years, have been arrested and eventually convicted for similar “false flag” attacks.

Pity, though, that that tweeter validates the language of the enemy (“racism“…).

I notice that even UK Government official websites (eg NHS) now have stylized cartoons showing the sort of family propagandized on UK TV ads etc, i.e. the black man with the white woman and their half-caste offspring. The Great Replacement. White Genocide, in effect.

Below, an example of the absurdity of Twitter: “Dr.” Louise Raw (whose doctorate is not medical but was the result of study of an industrial dispute of 1888), argues with another tweeter.

I notice that quite a few people have retweeted or “liked” Louise Raw’s tweet.

Leaving aside the substance of what she tweeted, I wonder how many of those retweeters etc assumed that Ms. Raw is a medical doctor?

As I have said before, in the UK it has always been the norm or “done thing” that persons with a medical degree are called “doctor”. In fact, many medics have no “doctorate”, as such; it is a courtesy title in many cases.

Others who, in the UK, have always been able to use the title “Dr.” without eyebrows being raised, have been priests and others in holy orders, tenured academics and schoolmasters, and scientists.

In other countries, notably Germany, it has always been acceptable for anyone, pretty much, who has a doctorate in anything, to use the title. One example was Dr. Goebbels: “At the University of Heidelberg, Goebbels wrote his doctoral thesis on Wilhelm von Schütz, a minor 19th-century romantic dramatist.[20]… After submitting the thesis and passing his oral examination, Goebbels earned his PhD in 1921.[21] By 1940, he had written 14 books.[22] “[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Goebbels].

It may seem, perhaps in view of the German praxis, pedantic to complain that an obscure Twitter person, who is not a public figure, calls herself “Doctor” on an everyday basis (and she is now not alone; there are even several MPs doing this, Julian Lewis and Therese Coffey among them). However, I think that we now have to stand up for standards. “Doctor” should not be devalued; “Professor” already has been, along with “Lord” and “Baroness”…

I am often critical of (some) farmers and of both their behaviour and attitudes, but it is not an unmixed picture by any means.

It becomes very obvious that “the virus” is being used, being weaponized. Coronavirus or “Covid-19” has killed about 1 out of every 1,400 people in the UK. More accurately, it has killed 1 out of every 1,400 people, who have mostly been over 80 and who mostly had several other serious conditions. Even leaving all that aside, it still means that 1,399 people out of 1,400 in the UK have either not had “Covid-19”, or have had it and survived (usually without ever having noticed that they were infected).

International organizations, such as the World Economic Forum, have openly proclaimed the virus situation as an “opportunity” for a “Great Reset” of world society.

The populations of Europe, USA etc are being taken for a ride.

“Ain’t that the truth?”…not only about Jewish talking head Portes, though. The general point is also true. Fake or supposed “professors” are everywhere now. At one time, “Professor” was an esteemed rank or title. Now? Well, of course every tertiary educational institute, however basic, is now a “university”. “Universities” need or anyway have “professors”. So now we have not only “grade inflation” and “award inflation”, but also “title inflation”. “Professors” are two a penny these days.

That’s not to say that Portes is always wrong about everything; he was right, imo, about the wrongheadedness of most if not all of the policies pursued by George Osborne, 2010-2015.

Ha ha! Lammy must have been a crap barrister! Unintentional admission implied?

As for the “professionalism” no doubt claimed by “Prevent” and its practitioners or employees, I believe that there are no Israeli settlements in Gaza; not even the most determined anti-Zionists claim that! So not terribly impressive that “Prevent” gets even basic and unargued facts wrong…Unless, of course, Channel 4 changed “West Bank” to “Gaza”.

Admittedly, I have not studied “Prevent” etc much, but such programmes always strike me as amateurs playing “Spooks“. I did blog once, a couple of years ago, about this: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/.

“NWO” and “ZOG” pretty much covers the waterfront… Add in “the Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” if you like…

Ha ha! As the Irish are said to say “will ya look at that eejit?!“…

Exactly. Also, you will never get to the bottom of this if you try to apply ordinary party or other political ideas to it. This is not about the outer labels of “Conservative” or “Labour” etc, not even about trying to create a Bilderberg/WEF “one world” corporatist tyranny. That is just part of it.

This is about trying to steer the whole of the world in an oligarchic materialist-dictatorship direction. It is tied-in with occult, evil purposes which reach right down into everyday life, even into family life.

Wealth is certainly part of this but there must be more. I am not scientifically trained (just like “Boris” and his Cabinet of clowns), but it is surely at least possible that the hidden agenda of the vaccines is to secretly weaken the human immune system so that, in a year, 3 years, 10 years, a new virus will “suddenly” appear and wipe out most of the population of the world, who (thanks to robotics and AI) are thought “Not Wanted On Voyage”…

Surely Neil Clark did not seriously think that “Labour” drones in Parliament or outside (or the pathetic self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits) would stand up for freedom and civil rights? They cannot even stand up for free speech against the Jew-Zionist element.

Well, admittedly I live in a “Tier 2” area, but over a whole 9-10 months now, not only have I not known anyone personally who has had the “virus”, but I know, from questioning people, that I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it. Not died from it, or been to hospital because of it, just had it, or been tested and found be infected. Not one.

I read online about people in London or Birmingham who have supposedly had it. I have no reason to doubt at least some of those claims, but this is not, or not yet, a plague. The big headline today or yesterday about this was “318,000 virus deaths in USA”, which (though many did not die of the virus anyway) is a huge number, but the USA has about 350 million inhabitants, so that is still far less than 1 in every 1,000 inhabitants.

That Stadlen individual is typical of many in the UK today, especially those who make a living being scribblers or TV talking heads. Unlike most of their predecessors, they see nothing wrong in censoring views, either directly or indirectly (the latter by simply encouraging the BBC, Sky, Press etc to disallow dissidents to write or speak).

Ah…got it: “Stadlen is the grandson of Austrian Jews, the concert pianist Peter Stadlen and Hedi Stadlen, the activist and musicologist, both born in Vienna... He has said that he gets his ginger hair from his Jewish great, great uncle, Onkl Friedl.[5] He considers himself half Jewish and has spoken out against anti-Semitism many times.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Stadlen.

Stadlen has a First in Classics from Cambridge, albeit gained since award inflation became rampant, yet seems never to have heard of onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat, sometimes put more simply as the rule that “he who asserts must prove“.

In the above case, the positive action taken was to institute “lockdown”. That changed the norm. Therefore it is for those who claim that “lockdowns” work to prove that they do. Not merely assume or assert; prove.

What does this Stadlen care? Wealthy Jewish background, well-paid jobs for BBC and other msm outlets. Looks like he has had a pretty easy life so far. No real concern for the millions of British people suffering (and about to suffer far more). Just crocodile tears tacked on to the end of his virtue-signalling.

All part of the “fear propaganda” brainwashing and conditioning.

Atrocious” maybe, but scarcely surprising to anyone who has seen on TV Anneliese Dodds, let alone Angela Rayner or Keir Starmer. Not that I have much time for Indian “clever boy” Sunak either.

Diary Blog, 15 December 2020

A poor start to the day as—once again— Radio 4 Today Programme invites a Jewish “rabbi” on to exhale platitudes on its Thought for the Day slot. Once again, I say “why?“; Jews are “only” about a half or so of 1% of the UK population, but are on that Radio 4 slot about twice a week, so about 40% of the time. 80 times the numerical proportion based on percentage of the UK population.

Why is that slot so disproportionately Jewish? Also, if the disproportionate influence shows itself there, is that the case with the rest of the Today Programme and other Radio 4 output? I fear that it is.

Incidentally, if you want to see what “Zionist occupation” (as in ZOG”) looks like when writ large, you need only look at the tweet below, from occupied Germany…

Dwarfing and eclipsing the nearby German and European Christmas tree, that ugly structure says “we now rule you“.

God…an ugly black woman playing the part of Anne Boleyn! A key part of England’s history! This country is so screwed, it is hard to believe…

Yet, and as Griffin says, a white person is now all but prohibited from playing a black character, even a fictional one, and whether Othello or a black minstrel…

God! What an evil-looking bunch. They look like murderers (and quite likely are).

All true, but sending letters to the MPs of the Westminster monkeyhouse will not really activate or frighten that corrupt pack.

Well, maybe, but I blogged long ago, a year ago, that in a situation where an incompetent or unpleasant government is effectively a dictatorship, albeit notionally “elected”, opposition comes, and must come, from within the ruling party itself. That was even true of “real” dictatorships, as in the socialist world before 1989.

As to this government, opposition to these ruinous policies may be encouraged a little by letters received, but I think that at least a few MPs are at last waking up to the possible consequences down the line of a collapsing economy, high unemployment, very high youth unemployment, inflation etc.

Exactly. For once I agree with faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges, who has pointed out in his tweets that, whether “lockdowns” “work” (reduce infections) or not, they are simply not sustainable for very long, either economically or socially.

There is a choice in terms of judgment: is the Government (and some others in Europe) merely incompetent, or are the political leaders deliberately following a transnational conspiratorial agenda (the “Great Reset”)?

Yes, but if need be Russia can put three million men in the field, of which 350,000 are regular Army personnel on active duty. That is around six or seven times the strength of the British Army; Russia also has available, on its western flank, at least 800 tanks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_Guards_Tank_Army_(Russia).

I support the right of Estonia to full independence, but these NATO games on Russia’s border are poking “the Bear” for no good reason. Britain has no need to again make an enemy of Russia.

In 1939, Britain gave a “guarantee” to Poland, a guarantee which turned out to be worthless, a bad cheque. When Germany invaded from the west, and the Soviet Union invaded from the east, Britain and France nominally declared war on Germany but in fact did nothing.

Perhaps Hegel’s aphorism is correct and “we learn nothing from History except that we learn nothing from History“…

It occurs to me: “if Harry Cole of the Sun “newspaper” is so impressed by one main battle tank, what would he think if 800 appeared and advanced towards him?”…

Another Harry Cole tweet:

Again, I fully support British fishermen and the integrity of UK territorial waters, including our right under the Law of the Sea to an Exclusive Economic Zone, where applicable, but this is not an easy issue.

If Royal Navy vessels defend British fishermen and the fish in those waters from French fishermen, and if then the French Navy moves to defend the French fishing fleet, could there be undeclared war (akin to the 1970s Cod War off Iceland) in the Channel? As far as I know, that would be the first UK-France naval “engagement” in the Channel since the time of Napoleon.

There is another point: a high proportion (it may be 40%, it may be 60%) of fish taken in UK waters is then exported at once to EU states, mostly France and Spain. If France and Spain ban imports of British fish, or (via the EU) impose ruinously high tariffs, that will kill much of what is left of the UK fishing industry as surely as if the foreign fishermen simply took all the fish…

The only possible good thing is that fish in the UK will be cheaper, so at least the British consumer will benefit to that extent.

So it seems that the claimants in the Windrush matter will now each be getting between £10,000 and £100,000 in cash, with a few even getting in excess of that! Jesus H. Christ! I just read that there are 500,000 potential beneficiaries! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-55300494; https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43782241

So the hit on public finances (ultimately, paid out of taxation by the British people…) might be as much as £50 BILLION! Even if it turns to be nearer to £100 million or £1 billion, rather than tens of billions, I fail to see why most should get anything or anything beyond a nominal sum. The vast majority were not deported or detained.

So now, even if all that happened was that someone got an unexpected official letter telling them something such as that they might at some point be subject to deportation, they are going to get between £10,000 and £100,000!

I should imagine that many real British people who have been cheated in this society would welcome similar payouts to themselves!

Take a look at anti-British, anti-European Indian, Ash Sarkar, in that video. Forget her cod-“Marxism”. She openly says it: “White population of the UK down by 600,000, while the non-white population is up by 1.2 Million….face it lads— we’re winning.” As I say, forget the post-“Marxism”. It’s pure “race hate”…race hate by non-whites and against the white people who have created the vast bulk of what is worthwhile in our contemporary world, indeed the modern world since about 1400 AD.

If anyone wants to know why The Guardian is on its last legs, look no further than the sort of silly, entitled, lazy pseudo-feminist idiot-journalism personified by Zoe Williams.

It only takes one candle or a Swan Vesta to pierce the darkness. That is why both the Jews and the “antifa” idiots hate any free speech. That is why (((they))) put out huge effort from 2014 to late 2016 to get me disbarred (even though I had ceased Bar practice years before, in 2008). That is why (((they))) have made repeated false accusations and complaints against me to police, Twitter etc (they succeeded with Twitter: I was expelled in 2018).

(((They)) are often rather more stupid than they think they are. It was only because “they” conspired to have me disbarred that I started this blog, which becomes ever-more popular. I only started the almost-daily blogging after “they” had me expelled from Twitter in 2018.

The same is true of Alison Chabloz. It was only after “they” caused her to lose her job as a singer that she started to realize what a menace they constitute, and so to speak up more loudly; and it was only after “they” started to persecute her even more that she posted her amusing satirical songs online. Indeed, her 2017-2018 prosecution (initially a private prosecution by the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”), and conviction, has only spread her celebrity around the world. Even some of the more perceptive Jews have seen that, and regret (for that reason) that Alison Chabloz was ever prosecuted. They have tweeted about it.

Interesting 2018 video

Sadly, though, Peter Hitchens is the sort of person who wants to have “a civilized discussion” with the enemies of Europe’s future, with Krishnan anti-Brit, with Owen Jones, with Ash Sarkar etc, maybe with the “antifa” idiots, and with the Islamists and Zionists too, who knows?

My view? There is no point in pretending that we are in an Oxford Union debate. These matters are, not far down the line, matters of life and death. Britain, and all Europe, face existential threats. The response must be adequate and more than adequate.

Diary Blog, 6 December 2020, including thoughts about 2022, “The Great Reset”, and the 33-year cycle

As we move towards the very significant year 2022, it can be seen that the groups, cabals or “ruling circles” of the West are gearing up.

The whole “virus” and vaccines narrative has become almost hysterical. Yes, a million people have died “with” this virus (most of whom would have died anyway at or near the same time, from other conditions they had), but that is out of eight thousand million (i.e. 8 billion) human beings on the Earth. One in every eight thousand.

I do not say that “the virus” does not exist. Of course it does. Something like 50,000 have died with it in the UK, out of about 70 million inhabitants (about one death for every 1,400 people in the UK). It is a serious public health problem, but is hardly the Plague or the Black Death.

In much of the UK, the population has been basically unaffected. Anecdotally, I personally do not know a single person who has had “the virus”, let alone died from it. Indeed, as far as I know, I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it, even asymptomatically.

It is clear that the virus has been weaponized, across the “West” especially, meaning Europe, North America, Australasia, to corral the population into both obedience to State orders and into being injected with the vaccine(s). The fact that there is already mooted the strong possibility of compulsion or “nudge” semi-compulsion is deeply suspicious.

Leaving aside “the virus” question, we see that the System is also behind the ludicrous “Black Lives Matter” campaign. That too is tied up with large-scale movements, behind which are those same groups or “ruling circles”. The “Great Replacement” of white Europeans both in Europe and across the world. White Genocide.

The “useful idiots” here are of course the “blacks and browns” and other non-whites, as well as the pathetic”antifa” and “anti-racist” types, all used by the System as a battering ram. The blacks think that they are about to take over, whereas they are just being used by transnational tyrants as a catspaw.

Then we have the open proclamation of a “Great Reset”, as recently publicised by the World Economic Forum [WEF]. It would be interesting to get hold of some of the recent Bilderberg attendees and have a conversation with them (as they hang upside down…only joking…) to see what has been discussed therein. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_meeting; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Halberstadt]

World Economic Forum headquarters (cropped).jpg
[Headquarters of the World Economic Forum, near Geneva]

This is no “conspiracy theory”. It “hides” in open sight…https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making…As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies...” [World Economic Forum].

There it is. The “ruling circles” think that “the virus” (the true origins of which are unknown) creates a wonderful opportunity to reshape the world the way they want.

The last year in that 33-year cycle was 1989. If one had to pinpoint a year in which “socialism” in various forms died, it would be 1989. After 1989, “socialism” of the old sort lost whatever credibility remained to it.

In the 1980s, in the Soviet Union, the CPSU (Communist Party) was on its last legs, legs of straw. “Perestroika” (a mere word or slogan proclaiming “rebuilding” but in fact meaning demolition of a socialist command economy) was the cry; in fact the legs of that old command economy were being cut off.

Within a few years after 1989, a pack of Jews had descended on Russia (and the other republics) and were carpetbagging on an unprecedented scale, buying whole huge industrial sectors for peanuts. Even before 1989, a few pioneer Western corporate lawyers were going to Moscow. The first one resident there was a Jew or part-Jew, UK based and whom I myself later met on a few occasions both in London and overseas.

I recall when Gorbachev, not yet officially the leader, came to London in 1984. The red carpet was quite literally rolled out for him, for example, by large Western enterprises. I saw one such carpet being laid down a day or so before his arrival (it was not shown on the TV news until he had actually been to the place, the HQ of one of the largest UK engineering companies): http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/december/16/newsid_2560000/2560125.stm

In other words, the “Wise Men of the West” were well aware that socialism, as such, had had its day, the socialism which their own predecessors had “injected”, via Lenin (part-Jew) and Trotsky (full Jew), into Russia.

Those Western “ruling circles” and cabals were preparing for the post-1989, post-socialist world already in 1984, and no doubt long before then.

One example: the American Jew economist, Sachs, first advised the Polish Government in 1989, then moved on to the Soviet Union a couple of years later, as it died, promoting a “capitalism in 100 days” concept. This was partly carried out under Yeltsin and his clique. Millions died (quietly…most were pensioners) of malnutrition and whatever else as the economy tanked. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Sachs#Advising_in_post-communist_economies

Across Western and Central Europe, parties formerly at least notionally “social-democratic” if not “socialist” either fell or became finance-capitalist in all but label or presentation. In the UK, the Labour Party abandoned its commitment to a form of socialism by 1995 (though substituting a form of meaningless “communitarian” words): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clause_IV. There was never a serious attempt to revive Clause 4, even under Corbyn.

The overall point that I am making is that 1989 was the pivotal year, though significant events happened both before and after that year. The death of socialism.

Other manifestations included the fall of the Berlin Wall (also 1989) and with it the DDR system of not only government but also society. As in most of Eastern and Central Europe, the DDR socialist regime simply gave up.

Yes, there are a few “socialist” states still around: Cuba, North Korea etc. They have as little significance as the surviving hunter-gatherer tribes of the Arctic, Australia or Latin America.

Since 1989, the prevailing ideology worldwide has been finance-capitalism, but a finance-capitalism permeated by globalism.

The New World Order was the cabals’ and cliques’ label then, openly proclaimed by President Bush (snr.) in 1990: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_world_order_(politics); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_world_order_(politics)#Post-Cold_War_%22new_world_order%22; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)

[the obverse side of the Great Seal of the United States]

The next world-historic year will be 2022. We can see the Western cabals preparing for it: the removal of free expression or free speech, especially online (which has developed entirely since 1989), the fake communitarianism, the push to (start to) eliminate the white European peoples completely, by race-mixing, by intimidation, but mostly by propaganda and brainwashing, starting at the school and even pre-school level; the normalization of mixed-race couples and mixed-race offspring etc.

The NWO cabals thought that their work would be more successful than it has been. The 1989-2022 plan was partly derailed by at least two major trends; the first was the unexpected revival of Russian national spirit, meaning patriotism, culture, political will under Putin (for all his flaws), and military might (which is still growing).

The second impediment to the New World Order [NWO] in the 1989-2022 period was the upsurge in Arab/Muslim military and paramilitary activity, from the more terroristic in the West to the outright war of the “ISIS” barbarians in the Middle East.

Those two factors slowed the progress of the NWO. We see now, as 2022 approaches, that both are blocked or weakened: Russia weakened by economic sanctions, and the various forms of Arab/Muslim upsurge or resistance running out of steam, or crumbling. For example, the Gulf states, I think Jordan too, either have or will soon have given official recognition to the Israeli state. That may only have formalized previous unofficial ties, but the timing is significant.

The previous years in the cycle have all been very important: 1989, 1956, 1923, for example.

The necessity now is for Europe itself to recover its racial and cultural memory.

Lighter fare: ducks changing their minds…

In the UK too. People are being softened up for huge standard-of-living falls, under cover of “the virus”, when 90% of the problem has been caused by the Government measures. Hundreds of billions are being thrown away by Rishi Sunak and Boris-idiot, yet already we see one billion shaven off the railways support.

It’s all connected with “The Great Reset” etc.

Good point. If Corbyn was no good electorally, was Miliband better? Brown?

Rachel Reeves, 2010-2015, parrotted the same line as David Cameron-Levita (remember that little bastard?) and George Osborne, more or less. They all belong to Friends of Israel…Oh, wait…

How absolutely typical of “them”. The Jew-Zionists always want “apology” for non-existent “wrongs”. That way they completely crush their victims spiritually, making them into craven doormats who can be then simply swept away without anyone noticing or caring.

Labour failed to win the 2019 General Election partly because, every day after Corbyn became leader, the Jew-Zionist element in the newspapers, on TV, on radio, and online were trashing not only Corbyn but also Labour.

I do not “support” Labour, as such, but if anyone is owed an apology it is the Labour membership, and it is owed that apology by the anti-Corbyn plotters in the msm and online, and by the Jewish lobby Labour Party MPs (some now ex-MPs, and not all Jewish, incidentally), such as Margaret Hodge, Luciana Berger, Tom Watson, Joan Ryan, Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Emma Reynolds, Ruth Smeeth, Jess Phillips, Mike Gapes, Ian Austin, John Woodcock and others.

Hitchens may be right about the teaching; after all, Eton even has its own orchestra with full-time conductor, and teaching staff have included such as John le Carre (David Cornwell), but the connections are the main reason why Old Etonians flourish.
