Glastonbury, and the G7

I wonder what the original revellers of 1970 would make of the Glastonbury “Festival”? Eighty-year-old —in some cases— “rockers”, and the audience largely (I read) composed of forty, fifty, sixty, or even seventy year old people.

Of course, a number of the members of the audience may themselves also have been at Glastonbury back in 1970, but they are not the same people as those young festival-goers of yore, 52 years ago, even if they think they are.

52 years ago, I myself was 13, and very different in most respects to what I am, think, and feel (or do) today. The same person, yet not. George Orwell noted that disconnect in one of his essays of the 1930s.

Overall, the Glastonbury set-up now (admittedly, I have taken almost no interest in it) is redolent of some dystopian sci-fi film, as is so much in the UK and the world today. Carefully-delineated and guarded compounds for different levels of…money, and a pseudo-green, pseudo-communitarian message sent out for the mugs to believe in. A dichotomy symbolized by the mountains of trash left behind after the festival ends its season.

Even Greta Nut was there (in one of the expensive and guarded “VIP” areas).

Talking about weird or dystopian, we then have the G7 summit, taking place in the Bavarian Alps.

Strikingly weird to see Macron’s wife looking so odd (not for the first time). See my assessment of the couple from three years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/

Like a female Michael Fabricant.

More substantively, I noticed this from the BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-61940007.

G7 face battle for unity as cost of Ukraine war mounts.

Some voices – particularly in France, Germany and Italy – have asked if it might not be better for the war to end, even if it came at the cost of Ukraine having to cede territory. A recent cross-Europe opinion poll suggested some voters put solving the cost-of-living crisis ahead of punishing Russia.

Others argue about the need to salvage some kind of relationship with Russia in the future.

Countries like the UK, Poland and the three Baltic States have been resisting these arguments…”

[BBC News]

Note that: most of the more significant states, meaning Germany, France, and Italy, want to step down their involvement with the Zelensky regime, but there is one major state out of step— the UK. The reason is obvious: “Boris”-idiot wants to continue to play the Poundland Churchill, whatever the cost in money to the UK taxpayer, and whatever the risk of war with Russia (and whatever the cost in misery and blood to the Ukrainian civilians if this war drags on). A distraction from his shambolic misrule in the UK (and from the fast-sliding support for his party at the by-election polls).

Meanwhile, the part-Jew/Levantine poseur unmeritedly occupying the office of Prime Minister had this to say:

Boris Johnson has said he is “actively thinking” about a third term, amid criticism of his leadership.

The prime minister was asked if he would like to serve a full second term in office – to 2028 or 2029.

At the moment I’m thinking actively about the third term and what could happen then, but I will review that when I get to it,” he told reporters.”

[https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-61939938].

[BBC News]

Hard to believe that the idiot is so empty of self-knowledge, but there it is. He seems to think that enough Conservative MPs will prop up his leadership, and that a sufficiency of voters will then endorse that.

HMRC shambles

https://www.theguardian.com/money/2022/jun/25/hmrc-tax-mothers-carer-company

Everyone in Parliament, government, or the HMRC (especially whoever purports to lead it) should read that article.

I myself could write one twenty times as complex, and several shades darker, about a problem I had with HMRC from 2008 to 2011, and especially 2010-2011, and going back in its origins for decades. Any such account would be somewhere between a comic novel and a horror or sci-fi story. Think Kafka.

In the end, my own problem was permanently resolved by what I can only describe, quite literally, as a miracle, and which came to Earth on my birthday one year. The HMRC vultures flew away again, forever.

I have lived and/or worked in, inter alia, the UK, the Caribbean, Kazakhstan, and many other places. The stifling miasma of bureaucracy is to be found almost everywhere, to some extent, but I never found an organization so shambolic, and so labyrinthine, as the HMRC of the UK. It is unique in those aspects, at least in my experience; I see from the Guardian article that, over a decade on, nothing much seems to have changed.

Thinking wider than the one organization (or misorganization), it seems to me that, as in the USA, the UK now seems unable to institute useful reforms in any sector, whether tax collection, prisons, courts, Parliament itself —and the electoral system— or anywhere else.

Think back to previous across-the-board-reforming times— the 1840s, the Victorian age, the Lloyd George era before the First World War, the 1930s (despite economic problems in the first half of the decade), the post-1945 social-democratic reforms, and the interesting experiments of various kinds in the 1960s and 1970s. Even the often not-very-satisfactory reforms undertaken by the Thatcher governments. Now? Nothing.

Ukraine

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/25/russia-pushes-to-block-off-city-of-lysychansk-says-ukraine.

As blogged previously, including yesterday, Russia may have lost much of the propaganda war against the regime of the NWO/ZOG Jew, Zelensky, but it is winning the war on the ground. Slowly. Surely.

However much money Biden throws at Kiev, the Russian forces will gradually take over Ukraine east of the Dnieper, after which anything is possible, including the capture or destruction of Kiev.

This is not our fight. Ukraine, which as a state (of sorts) has only existed for 30 years, has and has had no historical or other connection with the UK (unless you count the Crimean War of the 1850s, but Crimea has always been Russian or Tatar).

Also:

Ukrainian shelling on Saturday forced Russian troops to suspend the evacuation of people from a chemical plant in Sievierodonetsk, just hours after Moscow’s forces took the city, Reuters reported the Tass news agency as saying. Separately, a senior adviser to the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said special forces were still in Sievierodonetsk, directing artillery fire against the Russians.”

[Guardian]

So the Russians were trying to evacuate Ukrainian civilians, but the Kiev-regime forces shelled the plant where the civilians were hiding. Will that be reported on UK TV stations? Doubt it…

Even I, arguably for years one of the most trenchant critics of the Jew/Levantine poseur Johnson, have been stunned to see that even his jogging persona is (yet another) fraud by him.

The whole of the present Cabinet and most of the rest of this Government are useless and/or corrupt and/or not really British (they being mostly Jews, part-Jews, Indians, Pakistanis, a Kurd, blacks etc).

What is the meaning of the circle device? Is it Nietzsche’s “Eternal Recurrence”? Should it be a six-pointed star?

That is an Australian (Victoria state-government) MP.

I suppose that the homeless Aussies are there, somewhere, maybe on the other side of the building, in sleeping bags, while the housing that they should occupy goes to alien and enemy untermenschen.

Incidentally, that Sheena Watt claims to be Aboriginal. I suppose that she must be some kind of half-caste; plainly not full Aboriginal. I was at school in Sydney in the years 1967 through 1969, and while there were few Aboriginals seen in Sydney then (I only saw a handful in nearly three years, even in the city centre), the ones I did see were all very black.

Unusual building for Australia. Like UK high-rise council flats.

“Loans” to a shambolic, corrupt, “Ukrainian” (largely Jewish) regime which has arrested almost all opposition political activists?

A regime which is going to lose nearly half of its territory soon.

I suppose that, apart from “Boris”-idiot being a puppet of NWO/ZOG, he imagines that grandstanding for the Zelensky regime will be popular in the UK. I doubt it. Not when the brainwashed sheep start to wake up, which I think is already happening.

I hate what is happening to the civilians who have lost homes, families, companion animals etc, but the more arms that are sent to the Zelensky regime, the longer and more bitter will the war become.

These savages are coming to Europe, unless stopped, coming through Melilla and then Spain to France, and thence to the UK, Germany and Scandinavia. They bring nothing but a propensity to rob, and to rape (especially very young girls). They have nothing of value to add to any European society.

The sort of idiots in the UK who stood outside their houses, clapping, a couple of years ago, are now the most vocal supporters of the criminal regime of the Jew Zelensky and his corrupt and sleazy cabal. Will such idiots ever learn?

In fact, the regime of the Jew Zelensky has now banned at least 11 opposition parties: see https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/ukraine-bans-main-opposition-party-seizes-all-its-assets

Last month, President Zelensky signed a bill into law that gave the green light to ban any party that challenged the government’s policy on the Russian invasion, empowering courts to seize assets without the right to appeal.

While opposition parties are being obliterated, Ukrainians who engage in dissent are also being rounded up and arrested by armed men from the Ukraine Security Service.

As we previously highlighted, Ukraine is also attempting to extradite and imprison citizens who live in other European countries if they criticize Zelensky.”

Facemask nonsense

Incidentally, talking about the social idiocies brought about by the “Covid” “panicdemic”, I happened to be at my local Waitrose yesterday, in the early evening.

Most people woke up from the facemask nonsense some time ago, but I noticed three people wearing their muzzles yesterday: one couple in their early forties, at a guess, and a sad-looking or rather flat-looking young woman; probably someone with mental problems (trudging along in the car park, eyes downcast).

…in particular, the Jew-Zionist holidays, which are basically tribal supremacist demonstrations. It applies to the various other “communities”, to some extent.

Hard to believe that Sky News “reporter” and “interviewer” (System propagandist) Kay Burley gets about half a million a year, or more, for rubbish like that.

The picket lines of the 1970s and early 1980s, and particularly the “flying pickets”, were sometimes vicious, but that was 40-50 years ago, and anyone can see that the subdued line of pickets forming the background to that Sky News “interview” bears no relation to the angry and even thuggish equivalent of nearly half a century ago.

It might well be argued that the picket shown reflects the very weak state of the trade unions today vis-a-vis the 1970s. In fact, unions now represent hardly any working people, relatively speaking, and for most of those do little, and can do little, for them.

Ukraine and EU

One of the more ludicrous items of news yesterday was to the effect that Ukraine would probably be fast-tracked for EU membership and in the interim, be given some kind of candidate-member status.

Jesus H. Christ! It was not very long ago that people were lamenting the fact that Greece had been allowed to join the EC, forerunner of the EU, in 1981. Many had said at the time that Greece was too backward, and insufficiently stable economically. Those doubts resurfaced in 2001 when Greece joined the Eurozone.

Similar doubts were raised when most of the Eastern European states joined the EU less than twenty years ago.

Indeed, those of my sort of age (65) can recall the wranglings over whether the UK itself could or should join the EEC, as it then was, in 1973.

Now we see that Ukraine, a “failed state” (and failed economy) by most if not all standards, is going to be fast-tracked into the EU despite the fact that

  • Ukraine is actually, if not “legally”, at war with a neighbouring state, Russia, and may soon be in conflict also with Belarus;
  • Ukraine has lost about a fifth of its territory to that neighbouring state and/or separatist rebels;
  • Ukraine is almost a dictatorship, with most opposition parties banned, and leaders of some parties under arrest;
  • Ukraine has just lost the bulk of its heavy industry (which is or was located in the Donbass region or the Sea of Azov littoral);
  • Ukraine cannot export 90% of its agricultural produce;
  • Ukraine is only kept in the “war” because NATO states, and other states, are supplying it with arms, ammunition etc for free;
  • A substantial part of the population has fled beyond Ukrainian borders.

I suppose that what this once again proves is that the EU is primarily not an economic organization but a political project, part of the NWO/ZOG matrix.

I have seen Ukraine develop as a “fake state” and indeed “failed state” over the past 30 years. There were even strong possibilities, ~23 years ago, that I might spend time there (maybe two years or longer, in Kiev and/or Odessa and/or elsewhere).

Ukraine, a “state” for only 30 years, has been a festering mess of corruption and shambolic maladministration. Also, very much exploited by Jewish interests.

As it now is, Ukraine has control over only —about— three-quarters of its territory, and over about half of its 1990’s population. It has little manufacturing industry still operating, its agricultural produce cannot be exported, and it is almost entirely dependent on American and other foreign aid.

From the horse’s mouth: the effects of the half-****** “Brexit” carried out by part-Jew chancer and liar “Boris”— an increase in non-European, non-white, immigration.

Of course, it is all too easy to eulogize the past, but a basically white Northern European society can progress; in our age, the black/brown societies cannot, which is why the forces of Evil support and promote “multiculturalism”, because it results in a never-ending cycle, the Eternal Recurrence, as Nietzsche put it.

In the 1970s, whatever problems Britain had could be solved, in principle. Now, with a far larger population generally (70 million instead of about 56 million) and huge non-white populations as part of that, I am not optimistic that problems can be solved. The direction of travel is downward.

Ukraine

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/10/ukraine-casualty-rate-russia-war-tipping-point

The Russian forces in Ukraine east of the Dnieper river are doing what I expected, though far more slowly than I expected. They are squeezing and trying to encircle the large Ukrainian forces in and around the Donbass (southeastern Ukraine). This is the main industrial area of the country and is already, effectively and mostly, in Russian hands, with pockets of resistance in places.

I had expected Russian forces to advance north and south from the areas of Kharkov and the Sea of Azov coast respectively, then forming a line through Zaporozhye and Dnipro, and up to/down from Kharkov, thus cutting off all Ukrainian forces east of that line.

The Russians have not done what I expected, perhaps because of supply problems, perhaps also because of the apparently successful Ukrainian counter-attacks in the Kharkov area. The Russians may have redeployed forces formerly in the Kharkov area further south, around Izyum and Lisichansk.

The present focus seems to be on the town of Severodonetsk.

Instead, there seems to be an attempt at a more limited encirclement, involving about a third of the area mentioned above.

The Guardian is reporting that Ukrainian casualties, both killed and wounded, may top 1,000 per day. Even the lower estimate of 600 per day would not be sustainable for long. The Russian attrition rate is believed to be far less now, partly because the Russian forces have a longer-range capacity:

“...with an artillery overmatch of 10 or 15 to one, according to the Ukrainians, it may well be that the invaders’ casualty rate is far lower at the moment, because they are able to deal death from a greater distance to defenders who cannot see them.” [Guardian]

Ammunition is certainly running short on the Ukrainian side, again by their own admission. Vadym Skibitsky, the deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, has said Ukraine is using 5,000 to 6,000 artillery rounds a day, and has “almost used up” its stockpile of Soviet 152mm standard shells. It is now relying on Nato-standard 155mm howitzers; it is unclear how many of these it has.” [Guardian]

Western support is still in place, as shown by the UK announcement to supply a handful of – perhaps three – multiple rocket launchers this week, even if Kyiv said almost immediately it wanted many times more. But it is Russia’s forces that have found a way to advance in the Donbas, raising the question of whether the three-month war is at another turning point.” [Guardian]

If Russian forces can succeed even in this more limited encirclement, they will capture huge numbers of prisoners (usable as bargaining chips), and territory, but also will more easily be able to overrun much of the territory of Ukraine east of the Dnieper and south of Kiev and Kharkov.

If the Russian forces succeed in their present operation, then I would expect them to attempt something akin to the larger encirclement of territory suggested at the top of this blog post. There may be relatively little opposition by that time. Also, the open and flat rural landscape will play to Russia’s strengths.

At that point (assuming that Zaporozhye, Dnipro, and perhaps Kharkov are all taken or bypassed), a very large assault on Kiev might be prepared.

I am assuming that the Ukrainian side is talking about their shortages of arms and ammunition in the hope that the UK and US (etc) will provide more and better. Maybe they will, maybe not.

That might be the case were Kiev seriously threatened. NWO/ZOG seems to want to provoke further conflict, so who knows?

So constructed ~1972. Ironic that the Soviet Union finally became at least liveable only a decade or so before its collapse.

The Jew Zelensky and his whole cabal know that their main chance is to lure the NATO allies deeper and deeper into this war, until —in effect— NATO forces are fighting Russian forces. Unfortunately, the largely Jewish-controlled or strongly influenced msm in the UK, USA and elsewhere are pushing Zelensky’s line, and his demand for more and heavier weaponry, and for more ammunition, rockets etc. If acceded to, that could lead to a nuclear war in Europe, and indeed across the USA, as well as across Russia.

There are some well-known Ukrainian classics (almost all, though, written in Russian), such as Bulgakov’s The White Guard, but this dictatorial edict means that the cultural level of Ukraine will now decline further.

Ha ha! “The guy’s completely not to be trusted“…

Is that hypocrisy, or just a stunning lack of self-awareness?

Ukraine

As I blogged a month (or more) ago, and more recently (including yesterday), the Russian strategy now seems to be to consolidate control of the coastal regions on the Sea of Azov and Black Sea, as well as in the inland southeastern/Donbass region; also, to press north up the eastern bank of the river Dnieper and generally, to isolate or take the cities of Zaporozhye and Dnipro [Dnepropetrovsk], and then to push up to the northeast towards the Kharkov area. At the same time, the Russian forces in the region of Kharkov will keep that city isolated, if it cannot be taken.

If the above tasks can be accomplished, any Ukrainian forces east of that Sea of Azov-Zaporozhye-Dnipro-Kharkov line are doomed, and Russian forces will then control over half of that part of Ukraine which is east of the wide Dnieper river. Also, some territory to the west of the Dnieper in the south, around the Kherson and Mykolaiv [Nikolayev] region. Russia of course already has complete control of Crimea and its almost entirely Russian population.

Russian forces, assuming success as above, will then probably push west from the general region of Kharkov, and from the southeast through Poltava to the Dnieper and, simultaneously, north from Dnipro (following the river), until those three advances meet at the Dnieper, somewhere southeast of Kiev. At that point, there may be a gathering of forces so that Kiev itself can be assaulted.

The Zelensky regime has fortified Kiev. I wonder how much of the city will survive a brutal battle for supremacy.

As I blogged some time ago, the Russian forces may take all of Eastern Ukraine (i.e. Ukraine east of the Dnieper), but that will not determine this conflict unless Kiev, the ancient seat of authority, is also taken.

Once Kiev is taken, the Zelensky regime will lose much credibility in the West, and have to fall back on Lvov.

The largest cities of Ukraine and Crimea are shown here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_in_Ukraine.

It can be seen that, of the most-populous 20 cities, 8 are already in Russian hands, at least 2 seriously menaced, and another 3 or 4 not likely to remain outside Russian control for an extended period if assaulted. So about two-thirds of the largest population centres in Ukraine generally are or quite soon will be in Russian hands. In east-of-Dnieper Ukraine, probably all such large towns and cities.

The Zelensky regime may soon control only Kiev, Odessa and Lvov, and it is doubtful whether Odessa could hold out for long if seriously attacked.

If then, Russian forces eventually take both Kiev and Odessa (admittedly a big question, at present) that will mean that Zelensky and his cabal will control only a rump Ukraine, mainly poor and rural, based on Lvov.

Latest news is that Ukrainian forces are in retreat, or planning imminent retreat, in the east/southeast: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-61593803

The truth that the Western msm, particularly in UK and USA, are not showing.

The Jew Zelensky and his Zionist media-savvy cabal have been winning only one war— the propaganda war. The real war on the ground is now going against the Kiev regime.

Also, at least some people in, say, the UK, USA etc, are waking up to the fact that Zelensky’s corrupt shambles of a government is far from being a “democracy” with civil rights: all opposition parties banned, criticism of Zelensky and his basically Jewish regime banned, anyone wanting peace with Russia arrested, some tortured, and some even shot out of hand, as was the Ukrainian negotiator shot dead in the street in Kiev 2-3 months ago by Ukrainian security killers.

“Major Clark” must be frighteningly thick.

News from old Ireland

The piece below was sent to me; I am unaware of its provenance. Sounds about right, though.

”Republic in Retreat”

Ireland, a country which has historically valued its neutrality and ability to negotiate, is now engaged in political battles on every front foreign and domestic.

The country has shattered its decades old neutrality by supplying military aid to Ukraine in its conflict against Russia and is now antagonizing the British on behalf of the European Union, which is still extremely upset over the Brexit vote.

More than supplying Ukraine with Irish supplies, the Irish state is supplying Ireland with Ukrainians, or anyone claiming to be Ukrainian anyway. The Irish government has declared there will be no limit on the amount of “Ukrainians” it is willing to bring to the country. This policy is being enacted despite a housing crisis which has made Dublin the worst city in the world to find housing, doubled the homeless population, and is leaving young Irish completely unable to get onto the housing ladder.

While most Irish cannot find a home in which to raise a family, the few lucky enough to have a family are subject to sexual violence by immigrant men, all while their towns are being steadily demographically transformed regardless of any protests by locals.If Ireland were run by the Irish for the Irish, instead of by an Indian and a load of neoliberal traitors, then it would not be embarking down the path it currently is.

[provenance unknown]

Sadly, it seems that the present Sinn Fein is complicit in all the ZOG/NWO nonsense being foisted on Ireland’s people: black so-called “Ukrainians” given priority treatment, general mass immigration by blacks and browns from Africa and Asia, and the LGBTQXYZ nonsense, “trans” nonsense etc.

The transnational conspiracy must be getting desperate: global warming, conflated with made-up non-“Covid” triggers for the problems caused by the “vaccines”, and a conspiracy to take away companion animals, all in one mendacious propaganda gambit.

Stella Creasy is a prime example of an MP working entirely against the interests of the British people: pro-immigration, pro-EU, pro-Jewish lobby, pro-Israel, pro fomenting war in Ukraine. Not an exclusive list, incidentally. She also wants to destroy free speech online.

Escalation in the Black Sea

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10847419/Royal-Navy-escort-ships-carrying-Ukrainian-grain-Black-Sea.html:

Britain is co-ordinating with its allies on a potential plan to send warships to the Black Sea port of Odesa to offer a protective escort to ships exporting Ukrainian grain.

  • Britain, NATO and other nations could create a ‘protective’ corridor to Odesa
  • It would allow Ukraine to export large amounts of grain needed worldwide 
  • Denmark meanwhile announced it will send US-made missiles to Ukraine
  • The Boeing Harpoon missiles could help Ukraine to deliver long-distance strikes 
  • The Russian war in Ukraine has exacerbated a global food crisis

The plan would see allied navies clear the area around the southern port of Russian mines before protecting freight ships carrying the vital produce from Putin’s warships according to The Times.

Long-range missiles will also be deployed to deter any Russian attempts to sabotage the corridor.

[Daily Mail].

This is mad, and carries with it obvious dangers, both of direct conflict between forces of NATO and Russia, and also that the Russians will increase attacks on Odessa itself, to destroy the port area and perhaps the whole city. Odessa is the third-largest city of Ukraine.

It would be tragic were Odessa, a beautiful city in large parts (look on Google Earth or elsewhere), as well as one with a history going back 2,000 years, to be destroyed. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odessa.

This worldwide situation is not straightforward but, in part, is the New World Order [NWO] and ZOG [Zionist Occupation Governments] in opposition to states not part, or so much part, of that (notably, Russia).

That Shaun Walker (Guardian drone) seems to have missed the way British TV reporters are often seen dressed and accoutred these days.

Journalists for major msm orgs are often pretty ignorant. I recall encountering an American in 1988, the only other customer in the rather nice marble-floored cafe at the old Warsaw Airport (the terminal I knew was remodelled in the 1990s, then demolished and rebuilt a number of years ago, the new one being finished in 2015).

Not many people were travelling from Warsaw —or to it— on that dark and snowy evening in mid-December 1988.

The American (I strongly suspect Jew) turned out to be the Newsweek correspondent for not only Poland but the whole of Eastern Europe, though based in Bonn, then capital of West Germany.

Conversation revealed that said American knew little about Poland, even as compared to me, and I myself was little more than a casual visitor who had been there a few times.

Also, imagine the idea— the whole of Eastern Europe covered by one unimpressive “journalist” who did not even live in the region!

The readers of the American news magazines, UK/US newspapers, and the audience for TV reports, give the reporters more credence than they usually deserve.

“Ostalgie”

I am at present about halfway through reading The Stasi Files: East Germany’s Secret Operations Against Britain, by Anthony Glees, which was published in 2003.

Just saw this hearsay comment (somewhere else):

The nostalgia referred to is called Ostalgie in German. Ost means East and Nostalgie means Nostalgia. Well, East Germany is still behind the Western part of the country, sadly. And the Ostalgie is there for a reason. I once talked to a man, an Ossie, a former East Berliner. In 2010 he told me: “I used to have one job. I couldn’t go where I wanted, for example Paris or London. But I could go on vacation to Prague, Budapest and the East-German and Polish coasts. We always went on summer holidays. Now, I have two jobs, and I barely make enough money to sustain myself. I can’t go anywhere these days. I haven’t been on a holiday for over 20 years now.”

Again, every story has at least two sides. The repression noted by the author of the book I am presently reading was real, but that was not the whole story, just as a picture of happy, perhaps wealthy, Americans enjoying the surf in Southern California is not the whole story about the USA.

I myself only saw the DDR/East Germany for a couple of days (in the summer of 1988). Not a terribly good impression (I have blogged on or around it in the past) but I have seen worse.

I sometimes wonder whether the East German rulers would not have been better to allow more travel to the West, and to allow their citizens to stay and work there at will. They might have found that quite a few returned, in the end, if given more freedom to come and go.

Of course, the drain of population East-West from 1945-1961 (1961 being when the Wall went up) was part of the reason, to stop that drain, but the Wall was a propaganda coup for the West. How could it not be? What kind of state needs to imprison its citizens? Etc.

The same factors might have been true of the Soviet Union.

Saturday quiz

Well, this week, political journalist John Rentoul scored only 4/10, but I did little better at 5/10; one of my worst efforts. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 5, 9, and 10, and though I did get the answer to question 7, it was a pure guess (having said that, I really knew the answer to question 1 but, by reason of tiredness, could not bring it to mind).

Boris-idiot

I happened to see on TV a minute of some meaningless speech by the part-Jew, part-Levantine liar and chancer currently posing as Prime Minister.

One often hears that “all politicians are liars“, with which view I do not agree anyway, at least not un-nuanced, but even in the ranks of what Hitler called “dirty democratic politicians“, “Boris” Johnson stands out as a liar on an epic level of untruthfulness.

What does “Boris” sell? Hope? Not really. Just a vague “it will all be OK” nothingness. There is not even any skill to his untruthfulness. It is the lying of the con-man whose victims really know that they are being conned.

In the speech, of which I saw and heard a short TV clip, “Boris” emitted words empty of meaning, belief, or even basic plausibility. He is someone who (contrary to what was said about him by the sycophantic msm years ago) has little real culture or education, or even intelligence.

The prime ministers of the past certainly varied in ability, culture, and intelligence, but most of them, in retrospect, were at least plausible as real prime ministers. Take the 1960s/1970s: Macmillan, Douglas-Home, Harold Wilson, Edward Heath, Wilson (again, by then in poor health), Callaghan, and finally Margaret Thatcher. All very different inter se, but all able to lay claim to at least some genuine weight. What a contrast to Boris-idiot.

Incidentally, I noticed that that TV report showed “Boris” either arriving or leaving somewhere. Surrounded by guards. At least half a dozen; I think maybe seven or eight. Very indicative of the fact that not a few people would like to have a go at him. Again, a huge contrast with the past.

Look at the picture below: September 1966, and Prime Minister Harold Wilson is holidaying modestly in the Scilly Isles. Accompanying him at the quayside at Hugh Town, St. Mary’s (island) is one solitary bodyguard (almost out of shot, at right), pistol concealed under a jumper tied around his waist in cricketing style.

[Prime Minister Harold Wilson, 1966, Hugh Town, Scilly Isles. Always willing to pose with members of the public, even those without a vote. I am the (just)10 year-old boy on the far left of the photograph]

Wilson was far from universally-popular. In the area where my family lived (Berkshire/Oxfordshire border) he was pretty well disliked, to say the least. Not despised though (by most), I think, and no-one (as far as I know) wanted to attack him physically, or assassinate him.

People in the 1960s might not all have supported, or even trusted, Wilson, but few would think that he was nothing but a total incompetent, who had lied outright to become PM, and then continued to do so while in office, and while accomplishing absolutely nothing.

Now look again at fake “Boris”.

That kind of criticism of Basic Income always comes from those who have never been desperate for a few pounds, and/or those who have never been angry at being stuck in the Kafka-esque bureaucratic snoop-state which is the world of the DWP.

…which is why System creatures such as Denis MacShane (fraudulent ex-MP, Jewish-lobby puppet) oppose proportional representation— it is too democratic.

There have been growing parallels, since the late 1960s or early 1970s, between Britain and the society of Weimar Germany in the 1920s. Not exact parallels in all areas, but enough to make one think.

Why would Russia use as a weapon something that leaves 90% of those infected alive and soon-recovered?

There’s one answer only, but one cannot promote it online…

In other words, a pseudo-elected tyranny, with part-Jew, part-Levantine criminal “Boris” as pathetic yet sinister tyrant.

Had the GRU and other Russian state organs done their job properly, Zelensky and his cabal would have been eliminated days before any Russian troops crossed the artificial frontier.
