A 61-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting Matt Hancock on the London Tube.

The alleged attack on the former Health Secretary happened yesterday morning at Westminster Underground station, close to the Houses of Parliament.” [Daily Mirror]

What puzzles me slightly is why Hancock would travel by Underground anyway. He has a salary of £85,000+, generous Parliamentary expenses, and outside earnings (including £400,000 in 2022 for his trash TV appearances) etc. Maybe he is just a moneygrubbing skinflint.

Put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb].

Looks as though my blog comments about half-Jew Raab, from several years ago, and over several years, have held up pretty well, if I say so myself.

Sending hundreds of tanks to Ukraine (from all over Europe and the USA) is a massive escalation. In reality, even one nuclear missile on London = the UK finished for a hundred years or more. Even one nuclear missile on each of New York, LA, San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Houston, Miami, Chicago, Boston = USA finished for decades, maybe a hundred years or more.

Yes, Russia’s major cities and military centres too, but does that help us? No.

This is not the way to go. The escalation has to stop, and then be reversed.

The present UK Defence Secretary is what was once termed “a passed-over major“, a former officer who, when serving, was unlikely ever to reach senior command. Not someone who can be relied on now.

As a matter of fact, Wallace was a mere captain, not even a major, by the end of his service. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Wallace_(politician)#Early_life.

Yvette Cooper and her husband, Ed Balls, have several houses, partly bought by the money they ripped off during the expenses-scandal years. Not one houses any so-called “refugees”. Buy-to-let parasites.

Yvette Cooper should be kicked into the political gutter where she belongs. Incidentally, she is yet another Labour Friends of Israel puppet.

Amazing how many deluded or misled people actually think that “Jack Monroe” is busying around, collating useful or relevant data about the cost of food; in fact, she just collates enough to sound superficially credible to those who know no better.

A significant part of the UK population is just useless, and in fact dangerous, made worse by booze or drugs. They may as well be culled.

Simon Clarke’s political career, as MP, started in 2017, and will end either this year or next year, so 6-7 years.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Clarke_(politician)].

No-one I know wants a “Labour” (fake) government, but no-one I know wants the present fake “Conservative” omnishambles either, and it will be good to see the anguish on their faces as many lose their seats, salaries, inflated expenses, jobs for wives, husbands, girlfriends, mistresses etc.

In fact, one of the best sights of 2019 was to see how upset were Jew-Zionist-lobby puppets such as Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Ruth Smeeth etc, as they got turfed out of the House of Commons.

That Tom Harwood person is just another pseudo-national traitor to the people of Britain and the peoples of Europe.

That was what happened in the Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy.

I recall that, when I first lived in the USA, in 1989 or 1990, the first US Navy ship to go mixed-sex was deployed to the Gulf. An aircraft-carrier, I think. The sailors did not object to nearly 100 women sailors joining the crew, but their wives certainly did! With some reason: when the deployment finished, it turned out that about 90 of the —less than 100— women on board had been made pregnant…

As for the Royal Navy, it matters little now, because the Royal Navy scarcely exists as an effective force. Apart from the paucity of ships, there is the question of the quality of many of the officers and men.

I happened to see about 15 mins of a documentary about a British warship. About a third of the complement seemed to be women. The junior officers (men and women) seemed to be incredibly dim, and rather wet (in a non-oceanic way). Drunk, too.

As for the crew, their shore leave in Italy ended with many drunk and near-incapable. Admittedly, rather an old naval tradition, but it was unpleasant to see, especially, the female members of the crew so drunk that they were unable to walk, falling into the gutter in their short skirts, just as they presumably did in the “left behind” UK towns from where many of them must have originated.

Northstowe

All so that developers and bureaucrats can create “boxes for people”, or “hutches” for urban overflow. Horrible.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northstowe; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bloor.

[houses built by Bloor Homes at “Northstowe”. Could the architect —if any—and builders have made them any uglier? They look more like buildings in some decayed area of local council housing. Where is the space for Nature? Who would actually want to live there?]

Until I am convinced otherwise, I remain of the view that there is some secret or semi-secret plan to move the centre of gravity of England from the London area to a belt broadly stretching from Oxford to Cambridge.

I first became interested in this when on the road rather a lot in the years 2002-2007, going to county courts all over the place. I noticed the amount of roadbuilding and road improvement going on in that Oxford-Cambridge belt north of southern England but south of the Midlands.

I later discovered that railway links were also being created or upgraded: see, eg, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varsity_Line [“There are funded plans for the entire line to be re-established by the “mid 2020s”, partly on a new route and under a new name  – East West Rail” —Wikipedia].

Other transport links are also in progress: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridgeshire_Guided_Busway.

There may be a plan, perhaps secret, to create an urbanized belt, or initially a linked series of urbanizations, as a fallback position should London and the southeast suffer damage through war or natural disasters.

Milton Keynes is halfway between Oxford and Cambridge, and has been greatly expanded in recent decades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milton_Keynes. I can remember when it was little more than a building site; that was in 1977. I hardly recognized it when staying in the city for a couple of days in 2007 (for a case at Milton Keynes County Court, something that did not exist in 1977 or even, as far as I know, 1987; I first visited the Court in 2002).

Guess who/what is the local councillor (with responsibility for planning the “Northstowe” area) is?

[Tumi Hawkins: “LibDem District Councillor for Caldecote Ward, Cabinet Member for Planning at @SouthCambs. Chartered Engineer, Businesswoman. Jazzercise fanatic. Drummer”]

Hawkins?

A personification of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalergi_Plan; http://adam.curry.com/art/1543753587_mkXBrvrY.html].

I then became a property developer and investor, buying, selling and building/renovating property in Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire. I then moved on to ecommerce, developing our own range of dog skin care products selling on our website and on sites like amazon and ebay.” [Councillor Tumi Hawkins].

Take a look at the comments underneath her biography, comments by local people.

She seems to be unwilling to address the issues raised by local (English) people:

Jack Monroe

This is what happens in (other) frauds such as Ponzi schemes. Any “investor” who makes a loud-enough noise is paid back, but most either do not ask for the money taken from them to be repaid, or the repayment demands are not loud enough.

“Jack Monroe” usually does this— either ignores questions and criticism, and tweets irrelevant rubbish, or snarls, threatening critics with Jew lawyers or “flying monkeys” (mentally-disturbed fans), or —in extremis— makes up a story of how she is suffering from an attack of a physical or mental illness. Who knows? She may actually half-believe that the illnesses are real; a psychosomatic reaction.

One refund out of (presently) 635 utter mugs on Patreon, who are each sending “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 every month, and not forgetting the unknown number previously cheated by “Jack Monroe”, and who are now no longer sending her money; at one time there were 800 “patrons” —incredibly— largely because the Jewish TV cook, Nigella Lawson, helped to promote the whole “Bootstrap Cook” image. Nigella Lawson’s commendation of “Jack Monroe” is still on the front cover of the latest (and ludicrous) “Jack Monroe” book, Thrifty Kitchen.

Regeneration and transformation of land and landscape

Saw again this video, which I posted on the blog last year:

The lady at Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland was, sadly, persuaded by notorious Jew Twitter-troll Ben Gidley, under one of his aliases, to block me on Twitter, some years ago. No matter. I still think her work interesting. #MoralHighGround.

[Incidentally, the Jew Gidley is a lecturer at Birkbeck College in London. His admitted Twitter account is “@bengidley”, but he also runs “@bobfrombrockley” and, in the past, Twitter accounts closed down for trolling and online stalking: “@inthesoupagain” and “antinazisunited”. All accounts replete with Jew-Zionism, and mostly with a fake “socialist” tinge.

I am not the only person to have had problems with the Jew Gidley’s Twitter (and other) behaviour. The well-known journalist and columnist, Peter Hitchens, repeatedly exposed some of Gidley’s activities in his own tweets, though long after I had unmasked the little bastard. Others as well. I blazed the trail, though.

[Gidley there hiding behind the photo/mugshot of Johnny Cash]

Other Jew trolls tried to defend Gidley by attacking me and others:

As I tweeted some years ago (Jews conspired to have my Twitter account closed down in 2018), Gidley seems to spend most of his time tweeting, mostly via “sock accounts”, in the Jewish and Israeli interest, and most of that tweeting is negative trolling.

If, as seems, Birkbeck College is going to make a number of staff redundant, they could not do better than to start with Gidley, whose jargon-filled “academic” product is completely useless to society anyway].

Another interesting project:

British people living in tents, while non-white migrant-invaders are accommodated in good hotels, and given money, telephones etc on top, not to mention hordes of Ukrainian ingrates living like leeches on well-meaning but naive British families.

East Germany, the DDR, was very strange; I have blogged previously about my impressions, gained in a short time (less than 3 days) there, in 1988, and while in car transit from then-socialist Poland to the then West Germany.

“Ostalgie”-Musik

As blogged previously, I find myself rather fascinated by “contrived” societies, societies which have in a sense invented themselves: the DDR, Singapore, Israel etc. It might be said that all societies “invent themselves“, but the phenomenon is more obvious in some as compared to others.

Few MPs are worth anything these days. Most are either useless freeloaders or are actual enemies of the British people, or both (eg Yvette Cooper).

My own assessment from a few months ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

Johnny Mercer

Saw this from Johnny Mercer, the MP for Plymouth Moor View:

Mercer became a Member of Parliament on the back of his military career, with the obvious implication that he was, is, or considers himself to be, a British patriot or some such: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Mercer_(politician).

I was hoping, some years ago, that Mercer would prove to be an improvement on the all-too-often-seen MPs who put their duty behind their own financial or career benefit.

Unfortunately, as an MP, Mercer has been a big disappointment. First of all, it seems that he is, at least to a large extent, motivated by money. Criticism has been made of his making a considerable sum from commercial and/or “charitable” activities outside his work and position as an MP. His expenses have also been criticized.

Quite apart from the above, Mercer has had the “distinction” of having been sacked as a minister by the two previous Prime Ministers, first by Boris Johnson, and then by Liz Truss, the latter of which triggering a tweet by Mercer’s wife (employed by him on his Parliamentary expenses, incidentally), which tweet described Liz Truss (admittedly not unfairly) as “an imbecile“.

Presumably, Madame Mercer did not like the fact that Mercer (and so she too) thereby lost a ministerial salary of about £71,000 or so, per year (paid on top of MP salary and expenses).

Well, Mercer is now back in Government, as Minister of State for Veterans’ Affairs (the UK now using the American-style term “veteran” for someone who has served, however briefly, in the armed forces).

Now I see that Mercer thinks that Jew-Zionists such as Ruth Smeeth (actually half-Jewish— see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Smeeth) are “brilliant“…

I daresay that few would call Mercer himself “brilliant“. Ruth Smeeth (now “Baroness” Anderson) has worked for BICOM, the overseas propaganda org supporting the Israeli state and government. She is, and/or has, also been involved with the malicious and basically Jewish “anti-fascist” org called “Hope not Hate”, and (I think) the even less pleasant “UAF” (“United Against Fascism”).

Ruth Smeeth is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, and was a major part of the anti-Corbyn campaign which, as noted previously in this blog, was effectively a Jewish campaign to remove Corbyn as Labour leader, a campaign crowned with success when Corbyn was replaced by Jewish lobby and/or Israel lobby puppet, Keir Starmer.

Ruth Smeeth is well-embedded in the System. Not only now elevated to a well-paid sinecure in the useless House of Lords boondoggle but also appointed, a while ago, as an “Honorary Captain” of the Royal Naval Reserve, an unusual —and, to me, puzzling— appointment.

In applauding the likes of Ruth Smeeth, Johnny Mercer’s stock, which has been falling in my estimation for a few years now, falls to the floor.

When Mercer was elected, I rather liked the idea that he was a bit of a “loose cannon”, as distinct from the usual yes-men in the Commons. I fear however, that he is, also, not much good, as his having been fired by two successive Prime Ministers would seem to indicate (albeit that “Boris”-idiot and Liz Truss were both also useless).

Support for Jew-Zionism and its creatures, however goes too far.

Mercer won his seat from Labour fairly narrowly in 2015, getting 37.6% of votes cast; the constituency was only created in 2010. In 2017, Mercer’s vote-share jumped to 51.9%. The 2019 election saw a further increase, to 60.7%. Driving factors may have been the LibDem collapse (16.9% in 2010, as low as 2% in 2017, and only 5.2% in 2019), the collapse and disappearance of UKIP (21.5% in 2015 but not even standing in Plymouth Moor View in 2019), and Labour’s decline (in 2019, 31.5%).

As to whether Mercer will retain his seat at the next general election, in 2023 or 2024, that is an open question, though it seems quite likely.

Migration-invasion

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11519081/Police-evacuate-Shrewsbury-hotel-housing-migrants.html

The readers’ comments make it clear that the British people are getting very angry about the migration-invasion being colluded at by the Government, “Opposition”, and both State and non-state orgs.

Yvette Cooper: expenses fraudster, expenses cheat and freeloader. Member of Labour Friends of Israel. Pro-immigration, pro-migrant-invaders, pro-“tinker”/”travellers”. An enemy of free speech. A would-be dictator. A major reason never to vote Labour, however much you may despise the Conservative Party as it now is.

I do not expect decent behaviour from the “royal” Mulatta, Meghan Markle. After all, in the old German saying, “put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death“, but she has at least the excuse, or reason, of her background, arguably. What is the excuse of Harry (the “royal” Cuck)?

Actually, I think that it clear that “Harry” has mental problems, is not very intelligent even apart from that, and is completely dominated by that crazy bitch. He has anyway sold out not only his family (and I am not a royalist) and background, but also his people, their history, their race and culture. In return, he has a quasi-“celebrity” life in another country, and money in vast amounts, so long as he keeps trashing his country and his own family.

Deprive both the Cuck and the Mulatta of their fake or unmerited “titles”, and reduce them to the ranks.

Even “Jason Bourne” would find it hard to stay free under such conditions.

For those who do not recognize, from the description, the fat woman described above as “a CIA protected asset” (described by the US Embassy in London, in a Wikileaks decrypt, as an informant who should be “strictly protected“), that is Ruth Smeeth, half-Jew former Israeli propaganda employee and also former MP, and now (risibly, for someone who wants to close down free speech) CEO of “Index on Censorship”. She is closely connected to Jewish “anti-fascist” snoop and anti-free-speech groups such as “UAF” (United Against Fascism) and “Hope Not Hate”:

Frightening when you see how easily those superficially “well-informed” msm people really are…imagine buying a magazine such as PR Week with the idea that it knows what it talks about, and then you find that “Jack Monroe” is promoted! After months of constant online criticism of her behaviour, intentions, and whole contrived story!

The Observer was equally misled and/or remiss, not long ago.

Incredibly, and as of today, “Jack Monroe” is still coining it from no less than 641 utter mugs, via the Patreon website. Could be anywhere between from about £2,000 a month to about £30,000 a month. For nothing. Amazing how gullible many people are.

Surely that cannot be what PR Week thinks so great? Someone getting the public to swallow a load of rubbish (both literally and metaphorically)?

Speaking of “Bootstrap Cook”, here are a few recent tweets by one of the many people cheated by her:

The last tweet relates to the fundraiser set up by that struggling couple not long ago, which has raised, so far, just over 50% of the modest sum sought; it is still open for donations: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/heather-booth-3?utm_term=Gde7678Nq.

Incriminating, on the face of it.

I suppose that it could be simply co-incidental, but…

I am of course not a subscriber to PR Week; if I were (today), I would not be (tomorrow).

I have long been sceptical about the endless ranks of “PR” and “Comms” people in the UK. Now see how hopeless is their own quasi-“professional” or pseudo-professional magazine…

Many people realized, years ago, that Twitter had a rotten core in its employee ranks. I myself had, by 2018, just below 3,000 Twitter “followers”, despite myself only following about 40 or so “accounts”, mostly organizations rather than individuals. The Jew-Zionist troublemakers on Twitter tried, from about 2011, to have my account taken down. Finally, in 2018, it was. Prior to that, every time the follower-count approached 3,000, about 40 followers were taken off, en bloc. By the time I was (in the Twitter weasel word, “suspended” (expelled) in 2018, I should have had about 10,000 “followers”.

Others noticed similar phenomena. Peter HItchens made a joke about it, calling the Twitter employees responsible for reducing his follower-count by a personification he called “Frizelda”. Likewise, Nick Griffin realized that various tricks were being employed to reduce his “reach”: not just by reducing the follower-count but also via shadowbanning etc.

The best thing about Elon Musk buying Twitter is that huge numbers of Twitter employees have been sacked and may suffer hardship if they cannot get new jobs quickly. At any rate, at least they have suffered a shock. Screw them.

So it seems that yet another “conspiracy theory” turns out to be, well, true…

Incredible yet, paradoxically, all too believable

I myself am in two minds as to whether tweeter “@AntheaRogers” is one and the same with “Jack Monroe”/”@BootstrapCook”; I certainly would not be surprised to discover that such is the case.

I wonder though, whether that will happen. After all, if two complete wastes of space are stripped of their “titles”, what other equally pointless wastes of space might not follow them to well-deserved obscurity? Where would it all end? Let us hope that the avalanche starts, anyway…

Just send Elton John on his way, preferably with a kick in the ****.

cf. the “holocaust” farrago, particularly the “gas chambers” fable.

You could compare the 2020-2021 “panicdemic” or “scamdemic” to the post-2008 “austerity” nonsense imposed by part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne (with, once again, a general lack of opposition from “Labour”): a cynical propaganda campaign by the System, allied in that instance to a modern version of the late-Roman cruelty whereby the deluded citizens watched, in this case from 2008-2019, the poorer citizens being, if you like, thrown to the lions.

The international Jew-Zionist lobby is trying to help the half-Jewess (and Israeli agent) Ghislaine Maxwell. It must be awkward for the screeching Jewish trolls on UK and US Twitter…just as the Janner paedophilia case was awkward for the former.

The puppets of the System think that they are very clever, but their cards have been marked, even if only by a small-ish minority so far.

Priti Patel is, in effect, herself a migrant-invader, saved from spending her life behind the counter of a Kampala grocery shop by Idi Amin… and the UK’s asylum system.

Once again, tweeter “@EternalEnglish” hits the target. The “democratic” pantomime is a Schauspiel for the credulous. “Boris” is now exposed for the useless barrel of lies that many, including me, have said for years that he is. We now see the start of the planned movement to replace him, either by Sunak or, should fake “Labour” somehow manage to recover electorally, by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his Shadow Cabinet composed of Labour Friends of Israel members.

Incidentally, I heard Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper on the radio a few days ago, and her horrible, hectoring, and primly/smugly certain, voice brought back the days of Blair and Brown, including Yvette Cooper’s expenses cheating (she was, with her husband, Ed Balls, and in simple terms, a fraudster), and her support for both mass immigration and repression of free speech. A truly horrible woman.

Quite. Read , eg, To Build a Castle, by the recently-deceased dissident, Bukovsky:

The man whom the New York Times called “a hero of almost legendary proportions among the Soviet dissident movement”, Vladimir Bukovsky was expelled from Moscow University at 19 years of age, and by the time he was 35 had spent a total of twelve years in Soviet prisons, labor camps and psychiatric hospitals.

Mounting pressure in the West led to his release in 1976, when he was famously traded for the Chilean Communist leader Luis Corvalan. He then accepted an invitation to continue his interrupted biology studies at Cambridge University. His fame as a major irritant to the Soviet government was sealed with the publication of his powerful bestselling prison memoir To Build a Castle.

A masterful writer, whom Nabokov called “that courageous and precious man”, Bukovsky continued to write about life under totalitarianism. “The great truth was that it was not rifles, not tanks, and not atom bombs that created power,” he wrote. “Power depended upon public obedience, upon a will to submit.” He himself never offered that obedience or submission to totalitarian authority.

Bukovsky has used his acclaim to warn world leaders of continuing deceit and manipulation by Soviet leaders and their successors, up to and including President Putin. He recently said: “Having failed to finish off conclusively the communist system, we are now in danger of integrating the resulting monster into our world. It may not be called communism anymore, but it has retained many of its dangerous characteristics.” [Amazon UK]

Incidentally, don’t assume that the latter-day Soviet Union (1960s, 1970s, 1980s) was always “iron fist in iron glove”. Sometimes, as often in 2021 Britain, the glove was velvet.

I was told, in the early 1980s, of a person who, in the Moscow of the late 1970s, was a sort-of dissident, though not one that wrote anything; he also did not really want to get a regular (or any) job.

That person was investigated by the local militia (police) on a potential charge of “social parasitism”, which could land someone with up to 5 years serf-labour (in effect) in regions such as Siberia, or beyond the Arctic Circle. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parasitism_(social_offense).

Eventually, the local militia chief summoned the young man to a meeting. The young (20-something) self-styled dissident was given a way out: to take a very poorly-paid job (I think as a night-watchman), part-time (I believe three nights per week). He could then loaf, or take part in harmless “dissident” discussions etc, for the other 4 days of the week. That way, also, the militia could be seen to have done its job, and the KGB (Fifth Chief Directorate and/or Second Chief Directorate) need not get involved.

Is that not what happens in the UK now? Politically active persons can tweet or blog (unless “deplatformed”), or even meet in person, up to a point. If some whining, or loudly complaining, Jew-Zionist body such as the “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism” [“CAA”] or “Community Security Trust” [“CST”] makes malicious complaint to the police, the police mess around slightly with the “dissident”, insist on a pointless interview under caution etc, with the aim of firing a shot across the bows.

Those who dissent more, or more actively, may find themselves being prosecuted, or perhaps even harassed by the “Anti-Terrorist Command”, but such cases are only the tip of the iceberg; many others are quietly and even politely repressed, just enough to “control” the dissident…
