As a rule I try to see my glass half-full, leaving the half-empty one to other fellows. And now there are some good reasons for an eternal optimist to stick to his positive schedule.

Though it tarried, the summer has come, after all, to the North. The skies are blue, the grass is green and lush, the flowers are breaking out; in short, there is nothing for complaint. If God in His abundant grace bestowed this marvelous beauty upon us, He surely will not abandon us. Summertime, it is much harder to feel dejected than under incessant rain. God is in heaven and all’s right with the world.

And beside the wonderful weather, the whole neo-liberal edifice is collapsing. With the election of Trump, I told you that the Jewish Century (in the words of Slezkine) was on its way out. It is so, though sometimes it is darkest just before the dawn.

You were annoyed by PC, political correctness. And rightly so. You may call a spade, a spade, but you can’t call a Jew, a Jew. They do not like it, and waste no time in making their dislike known. This was the unfortunate experience of Jeff Sessions, the Attorney-General, who referred to “the Jewish AIPAC”. This does not sound very controversial. What can be more Jewish than AIPAC, the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee, aka Israel Lobby, or Jewish Lobby? This organisation is a member of the Jewish Organisations’ Conference. Its participants are Jews – or politicians and activists hoping to get generous Jewish donations. Still, Jeff Sessions has been called an anti-Semite and a KKK sympathizer.

It had much less impact that you’d expect. There were no apologies, no visible distress. A much forwarded twit (by Andrew Joyce) said “Expect Sessions to be labelled an anti-Semite from here on in for the egregious crime of suggesting that AIPAC is Jewish. Jews in panic mode”.

Why did they panic? An important part of Jewish strength has been due to their stealth mode of operation. They aren’t seen, they try (and often succeed) in being invisible.

If a scientist gets a Nobel prize, or an actress has a hit, and they are Jewish, you’ll know it. If it is a slum landlord, you won’t. AIPAC is in the twilight zone: it is a valuable tool, but with a murky reputation as Capitol Hill’s Genghis Khan. If people will call it “Jewish”, as Sessions did, who knows what else they will call “Jewish” tomorrow? The New York Times?

And here we come to the second and bigger reason for Jewish panic. Their Masters of Discourse system (media, talking heads, opinion makers) does not deliver the goods anymore. They failed to crown their preferred choice Hillary, and they failed to stop advancement of Jeremy Corbyn. The British establishment vowed to derail Corbyn; the newspapers prophesied he would suffer the biggest defeat in the history of the Labour Party. This mild man had been presented as the arch-enemy of the Jews; his hobnobbing with Hamas and other Palestinians had been mentioned endlessly. They demanded his apologies, he had to prove he was not an anti-Semite.

His worst enemies were in his own party. The Guardian attacked him incessantly. The Jewish socialists wanted to skin him. The Jewish Labour MPs were strongly against Corbyn. They participated in an attempted coup, when they and other Blairites voted no confidence in Corbyn. Corbyn appealed to the masses – and won.

Michael Foster is a typical Jew-against-Corbyn. He is a millionaire many times over, a sponsor for Blair, an enabler of the Iraq war, the man whose name is connected to political bribery and to the subversion of the Labour Party in Blair days. He published a ferocious attack on Corbyn in the Mail, and then in the Haaretz newspaper, calling the new leader “a bully who is bad for democracy, for Britain and for British Jews”.

He objected to Corbyn’s rejuvenation of the Party: “Now [Corbyn’s people] are “democratizing” the established Labour Party by swamping the old membership with more radical, more vocal, more socialist, more Green, more anti-establishment middle class and working class supporters. Old and young, they expound a creed of public sector socialism we all experienced as having been completely discredited by the dark economic stasis of the 1970’s.”

But his “discredited” does not impress people anymore. The other way around: whatever they dislike, whatever they condemn, is a good thing for voters. There are real objectives of Corbyn, first of all. It is not a vague “make Britain great”, but a down to earth decision to end austerity, to provide free tuition in universities, to grant housing benefits for youngsters, to renationalise the railways, the National Health Service and other utilities. To take money from the defence budget, and give it to people. This is what people want, and this is what they were promised by Corbyn, while the Conservatives promised more austerity for all and less taxes for the rich.

Trump would do good to borrow a leaf from Corbyn’s cooking book: he organised his supporters into an “inner party”, called Momentum, the nearest thing to Lenin’s idea of a party. Its members acted against British counterparts of John McCain, against the traitors within the Labour. They were so efficient, that Michael Foster called them “Nazi Stormtroopers”, though their leader is Jon Lansman, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family, lived in an sraeli kibbutz for a while, and is friendly to the Israeli Left (So much for the alleged anti-Semitism! A sincere Jew is always welcome in any movement, as opposed to two-timers in search of opposition control. Even Josef Stalin, who was not a renowned philosemite, had Jewish comrades at the top positions in the government and in the Party, and they remained loyal to him when others betrayed his memory.)

Foster was a poor prophet. “Labour, under Jeremy Corbyn, has never done so badly in the polls since the early 1930’s”, he wrote. Actually, Labour never did so well for many years, as under Corbyn.

ORDER IT NOW

Do you think the Jews hated Corbyn because of his stand on Israel/Palestine? They would like you to think so. They like to be seen as patriots of Israel, but Israel is just a smokescreen to cover their true interests. They are against the working people and for themselves, that is for landlords and moneybags. They have a much better reason to hate Corbyn than the Middle East. Israel/Palestine is after all just an indicator of policy.

Indeed, now Corbyn called to take over empty houses of absentee landlords to house the survivors of the horrible fire in North Kensington. There are at least fifteen hundred empty houses in the borough, whose owners keep them empty in the hope of selling them on at a massive profit when the time is right. There are also empty houses kept by banks and investment companies.

This is why London has such expensive property rents, such long waiting lists for municipal housing, and that’s why native Brits can’t afford to live in London. Their homes are being taken over by people who can afford the high rents or by people who are willing to squeeze into shoe-box-size flats, like the burned-out Grenfell Tower. In both cases the tenants aren’t likely to be English, while the landlords are very likely to hate Jeremy Corbyn.

Not all British landlords are Jews, far from it. But the Jews speak for them and support them. The majority of British Jews vote Conservative, and over 70 Conservative MPs are landlords. They are proud that Jewish voters stopped Corbyn from becoming Prime Minister against the wishes of the British people.

Corbyn belongs to the traditional Labour of the 1970s. In those days I also lived in London, working for the BBC. London and England influenced me a lot. My favourite writer is Wodehouse, not Dostoyevsky. My favourite river is the Thames, not the Volga or the Jordan. I remember England of the Labour days with great nostalgia. The wonderful city full of life was affordable even for a young journalist. I and my wife could (and did) buy an apartment of a decent size in Kensington, and paid a very reasonable mortgage. The housing was affordable because the Labour gave priority to the tenants, not to the landlords. The homeless (or just the adventurous) squatted in luxury properties of foreign millionaires that anyway stood empty. Landlords could not evict their tenants at will or raise the rent freely, and they sold their properties to their tenants. ‘Landlord’ was not a good vocation in Labour England. Owners-occupiers became the biggest group of London dwellers.

In those glorious days, financiers were severely taxed, while coal miners were subsidised. That was before the wicked witch Margaret Thatcher closed the mines and turned workers’ Britain into a financiers’ paradise, before they invented Global Warming to kill coal. And that is the England Jeremy Corbyn wants to return to. That is why British Jews hate him so passionately.

The Jews wouldn’t be Jews if they were to support just one party. They support them all and turn them into look-alikes. They supported Labour, and Labour became Conservative Lite, all for bankers and against workers. They supported Conservatives, and they dropped their conservative ideas, embraced the Jews and the PC, and brought foreigners from the Third World and from East Europe in droves. And now comes Corbyn, reinventing Labour as it was and ruining all their efforts to gentrify the party.

Corbyn’s Labour didn’t win outright at the polls, but chances are good that he will – perhaps within one year. Jewish columnists like Nick Cohen (a disclosure: he attacked me for my collaboration with Julian Assange and Wikileaks) may eat their hats: they predicted Corbyn would fail miserably, but it was they who failed.

I’ll give you an additional example of the PC collapse that is taking place in Europe.

In Sweden, a wonderful country hit by extreme, almost suicidal self-abnegation, there is the issue of “unaccompanied minor refugees”. These are usually young male Afghanis or Syrians who arrive in Sweden and claim they are unaccompanied minors. They are accepted and provided with all modest comforts. Even if they commit a crime, they are treated leniently, as minors. They often look like young men in their twenties, or even thirties. True, it could be hard to determine the age of a person of a different background, and the Easterners look older than Northerners. Usually these “children” lack reliable documents. Until now, it was considered a hate crime to doubt they are what they say they are. When a journalist wrote they were in their middle twenties, he was branded by a Nazi stigma and lost his job. Reputable journalists in reputable papers referred to the common feeling on their age as an “urban legend”.

However, there has been a big shift in attitudes. The Swedish Democrats, the far right nationalist party, a Swedish twin of French FN, became, according to the recent polls, the second biggest party in the country. And the liberals understood that their ideas can’t be outlawed and marginalized, that they do not scare people anymore by a Nazi comparison, people do not buy it anymore.

They did a full paradigm shift. The leading liberal newspaper, the same one that stigmatised its opponents as Nazis, published an editorial saying that the accompanied children are not children at all. 80 to 85 per cent are over twenty. It is not an urban legend, as they said previously, but reality. And they proposed to eliminate the category of children refugees by declaration. If one wants to be considered a child, he or she should submit to medical examination. This demand has been considered a Nazi demand; a good person was supposed to believe what the boys were saying. And now it changed. A good person may trust his own eyes, and send the boy to a doctor to have his age determined. So the struggle against people who are used by the world government strategists keen on population replacement bore fruit.

ORDER IT NOW

Does it mean that the Swedish Democrats are likely to win the elections? I doubt it, for they have no answers to other questions beside immigration. Should Sweden stay in the EU, or leave? Should Swedish workers get security of their jobs, or they will continue to work under easily revoked contracts? They have no answer, and thus it is hard to believe they will win. But anyway they did a good job by undermining PC and allowing the free exchange of ideas.

You can trick some people etc, but you can’t trick all the people forever. The great Jewish invention called PC and their media do not impress anymore.

If that is so, why, will you ask me, did the opposition not win in France? It is because the far right, or the alt-right, the FN has some good ideas, but it is not fighting for real issues: austerity, salaries, dwellings, job security. It is good to be against immigration, but it is not the most urgent question people want to answer. Corbyn promised to turn temporary jobs into permanent, while Marine Le Pen did not.

The US is very different. Though your young people are also working under short term contracts and can be fired at five minutes notice, though you have to pay thousands of dollars for schooling and medical help, you are used to it and consider it natural. You have never had social democracy, your trade unions are non-existent. In your view, the leftists are those who stand by Jews and blacks, not for you. A true leftist, one who fights for the workers, would probably end up being lynched as a Commie.

Anyway, be aware that all over the world there is a new wind blowing, a wind of change. You may consider it a sort of return to 1970s, after many years of CIA-bred neoliberalism. As the US had always been different from Europe, your way forward will also be different.

  6. ” If that is so, why, will you ask me, did the opposition not win in France? ”

    Four out of ten French voters voted for Mélenchon or for Marine le Pen.
    Both want to leave the EU, immigration divides them.

    Why did not six or more French vote against the EU, as they did in 2005 ?
    I suppose because nearly all media predict economic disaster if France leaves the EU.
    It is therefore that Brussels does anything to make Brexit a disaster for GB, should GB emerge better, economically, the EU is finished.

    The Corbyn problem is to choose between nationalism and socialism.
    Dutch ‘socialists’, PvdA, went back 29 seats, in the last election, to nine.
    They’re now licking their wounds, one suggestion is ‘that the PvdA must stop solidarity with immigrants’.
    I wonder how ethical considerations can be pushed aside for the interest of a party, those whose career expectations were built on that party.

    Socialists all over Europe seem still unable to see that cultures exist.

    Because too many voters in most of Continental Europe still believe the swill that is spoon-fed to them by the state-controlled media. It's why Merkel will win comfortaby despite doing more damage to the German nation and culture than the Kaiser and Hitler combined. It's why Brexit is not just a political statement as much as it is a survival strategy of escaping a Union of Koolaid drinkers bent on mutual suicide.

    In Britain, by contrast, a "disagreeable" Corbyn, as portrayed by the media, was still taken as being more sympathetic to the common folk outside the M-25, and even the leftists living in the outskirts of London, than the phony-Labourites following in the footsteps of Blair and Brown.

    This is not your father's Labour party... This is your grandfather's Labour party!

    Corbyn’s economics were uncosted promises of bread and circuses. How did the Brits fall for this nonsense? Maybe there’s a clue in the recent poll that revealed that 17 million adult Britons do not even have the numerical abilities of an 11-year old. Given that Corbyn has talked of requisitioning properties (property rights be damned & viva the revolution!), we’d better not get on to those folks’ verbal reasoning power.

    It's not as if the Conservatives were ruling in the interests of the British people. They're just a bunch of globalist scum genociding the British nation by a combination of suppressed native reproduction and mass replacement immigration in the interests of the construction industry, the City of London and the owners of companies employing cheap immigrant labor to do contracted out government work such as hospital janitorial services.

    In fact, most of those voting for Corbyn probably just wanted to say "fuck off Thereason May."

    The point of the Brexit referendum was to lock Britain into the EU despite the widespread opposition. Cameron lost his bet and was replaced by May, who was also anti-Brexit and seems well on the way to negating the effect of the referendum by destroying the Government's mandate to pursue effective Brexit negotiations.


    Maybe there’s a clue in the recent poll that revealed that 17 million adult Britons do not even have the numerical abilities of an 11-year old.
     
    Wow, that makes one wonder what are the numerical abilities of a British 11-year-old are. Presumably not even equal to the numerical abilities of a five-year-old.

    Another piece that very quickly elicits the old ‘AJNTSA”. I’m surprised the USS Liberty was not somehow worked into this screed.

    Forgive us if we don’t see Corbyn and his ilk that approach political and societal solutions with the naivete of the thinking in the old song,

    Old school leftism was down to earth and promoted genuine, social equality. This is anathema to the Jewish mindset which holds Jews above the rest of humanity.

    That is, i think, the best quote from the article.

    Of course, I always note that that is what the WASP Elites did in America. The original Republican Party was voted into office only because there were 4 major candidates for President. Lincoln was backed by virtually all of the most Liberal ‘Ivy League’ professors (who then were virtually 100% pure blood WASP, all of the most Liberal northern pastors and journalists (ditto on the WASP thing), all of the Abolitionists, the vast majority of the former Know-Nothings, as well as the vast majority of the super rich Wall Street men (again, then virtually 100% pure blood WASP).

    That seemingly strange coalition actually made sense, because its focus was on hating Catholics, despising the Scots-Irish, using blacks as pawns and tools with which to batter the white ‘enemies,’ and promoting ever leftward moving Protestant theology and social morals while also further enriching the WASP Elite (and their double first cousin kin the Germans) – at the expense of all other whites.

    When the Democrats, almost exclusively white Southern and Catholic immigrant, became a threat once again to Yankee WASP machinations, more WASP Elites shifted party, in order to destroy the Democrats as the party of the working class whites. WASP Elites, including those who remained Republican (for example, the Rockefellers) were thrilled to spend fortunes and good will to enable Jews to rise very quickly as power brokers in the Democrat party, working with WASP Elites (both Republican and Democrat) in order to refocus the Democrats from being the party of farming and working class white Christians to a party that intended to out-Liberal the Republicans in parading Negroes as sacred cows.

    When the Democrat party had been ruined, and huge numbers of religiously and culturally conservative Catholics and Southerners became became backers of Ronald Reagan, the Jews in the Republican party, who had been tightly allied with the WASP Elites since at least WW1, began the new culture war to make certain the Republican Party would be anti white working class and anti-traditional Christian values – just like the Democrats.

    In the US, as in England, that process was begun by WASP Elites, with Jews being grafted in as allies of WASP Elites.

    except that the Elite in the British Isles isn't AngloSaxon. That little matter was sorted out 951 years ago.
    And probably not even Protestant. They leave that sort of thing to the abos; Ulstermen, Outer Hebridean islanders, or the Welsh.
    Anything else you'd like to blame us native English for while you're at it? Slavery, perhaps? The Potato Famine? Opium Wars? The rise of Hitler? The Partition of India? Don't worry, we never take offence. Water off a duck's back mate, we get that stuff 24/7.

    Since devaluation of currency has been made impossible by the euro, lowering wages is the only possible way to make a country competive again.
    This is possible only through large unemployment, and/or by what Macron now will do: 'liberating' the labour market, what Mélenchon calls 'uberisation', the return to medieval piece rates.
    Merkel has nothing to do with economic laws, destroying an important economic mechanism, de- or revaluation of currencies, has severe consequences.

    Yes. The size of the German (also Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean and arguably Singaporean) foreign exchange surplus is a direct measure of the suppression of wages.

    The 3-day week was during Thatcher’s predecessor as Tory prime minister, Ted Heath. The dead unburied for months was a tabloid myth. Back in the days before the internet and social media, the mainstream media had a monopoly on what the people were told. They always told likes about Labour.
    Actually, back in the 1970s, quality of life was far better for most people. The building societies lend what people could reasonably afford, around 2X salary over 25 years, the money coming from deposits from savers, who would subsequently apply for a mortage. This meant housing was priced at around 2X salaries plus a small deposit that could be saved from salary within 1-2 years. House prices now reflect what banks are ready to lend, not what is affordable. So mortages are longer, often with interest only repayments.
    Plus education was free. The buses were run by the municipalities that cross-subsidised remote routes with popular routes, so fares were affordable. Thatcher privatised that, so now, private companies compete on popular routes, and dont bother with isolated communites. Electricity, water and gas were affordable because they were state owned with CEOs that earned reasonable salaries, not millions.
    Dont come to me with your crap about 3 day week, unburied dead. All tory myths and propaganda.

    I remember 14% inflation. And the wages just about keeping up, after a bit of a lag each time lending rates and prices staggered up. Not like today, which is crucial. The mortgage just evaporated before the old man's incredulous (Depression-baby) eyes.
    And based on a single 'head of household' or potential borrower's salary. Wifey's pin-money didn't count, even if she was putting in a double shift sewing seat covers at Ford's.
    None of this double-income-no-kids malarkey. Only the signature on the mortgage counts.
    I mean, your wife might kick the bucket through overwork, and then where would we be, as lenders?

    As for rubbish piled in the streets. I've seen that year after year since. Often caused by the binmen going on strike in response to undermanning and sweating rather than pay (they have to collect at a jog-trot now), and wealthy suburbanites in LandRovers for many miles around dropping off their black bags in whichever innercity zone they commuted through each morning. Not their problem if the bins weren't being collected there either, is it?

Speaking exclusively about price competitiveness hints, yet again, to a North European hard-money liquidationist mentality which has peremptorily dismissed fiscal spending even when those same economies are burdened with chronic surpluses with the attendant deflation.

    Unless pr0tectionist measures are deployed to return jobs from the Rest to the West, massive money creation to provide "stimulus" will suck in more stuff from the sweatshops of Asia, etc. resulting in currency devaluation. The end result: global wage leveling down to Third World rates, which is the globalist goal, as Jimmy Goldsmith explained at the time Bill Clinton was signing away workers rights by signing up to the 1994 GATT agreement.

    "The Jews wouldn’t be Jews if they were to support just one party. They support them all and turn them into look-alikes. They supported Labour, and Labour became Conservative Lite, all for bankers and against workers. They supported Conservatives, and they dropped their conservative ideas, embraced the Jews and the PC, and brought foreigners from the Third World and from East Europe in droves. And now comes Corbyn, reinventing Labour as it was and ruining all their efforts to gentrify the party."

    That is, i think, the best quote from the article.

    Of course, I always note that that is what the WASP Elites did in America. The original Republican Party was voted into office only because there were 4 major candidates for President. Lincoln was backed by virtually all of the most Liberal 'Ivy League' professors (who then were virtually 100% pure blood WASP, all of the most Liberal northern pastors and journalists (ditto on the WASP thing), all of the Abolitionists, the vast majority of the former Know-Nothings, as well as the vast majority of the super rich Wall Street men (again, then virtually 100% pure blood WASP).

    That seemingly strange coalition actually made sense, because its focus was on hating Catholics, despising the Scots-Irish, using blacks as pawns and tools with which to batter the white 'enemies,' and promoting ever leftward moving Protestant theology and social morals while also further enriching the WASP Elite (and their double first cousin kin the Germans) - at the expense of all other whites.

    When the Democrats, almost exclusively white Southern and Catholic immigrant, became a threat once again to Yankee WASP machinations, more WASP Elites shifted party, in order to destroy the Democrats as the party of the working class whites. WASP Elites, including those who remained Republican (for example, the Rockefellers) were thrilled to spend fortunes and good will to enable Jews to rise very quickly as power brokers in the Democrat party, working with WASP Elites (both Republican and Democrat) in order to refocus the Democrats from being the party of farming and working class white Christians to a party that intended to out-Liberal the Republicans in parading Negroes as sacred cows.

    When the Democrat party had been ruined, and huge numbers of religiously and culturally conservative Catholics and Southerners became became backers of Ronald Reagan, the Jews in the Republican party, who had been tightly allied with the WASP Elites since at least WW1, began the new culture war to make certain the Republican Party would be anti white working class and anti-traditional Christian values - just like the Democrats.

    In the US, as in England, that process was begun by WASP Elites, with Jews being grafted in as allies of WASP Elites.

    Your quibbling sounds Jewish, we might say, if we also don't know that the WASP Elites have a history of doing exactly the same thing to get out from under what they have done to benefit themselves at the expense of everyone else (including the English working class).


    Yes, the Normans invaded and won. Yes, the Normans brought with them large numbers of Celtic Bretons (who were British Celts who fled Angle and Saxon Germanic depredations). No, the Germanic pagans invading Britain did not exterminate the native Celts, nor force them all west into what would be known later to them as Wales and north into the future Scotland. But the vast majority of native Celts in southern Britain were made serfs under Germanic warlords.

    The matter is not one of magic blood that tells everything, that foreordains all. The matter is cultural assimilation, because that produces cultural proclivities spread by people who are not genetically the founders of the cultural patterns.

    As the Normans in Britain, slowly over centuries, lost their French language, replacing it with English, they also assimilated to other parts of Anglo-Saxon culture. Eventually, even that lord who could prove almost no Anglo-Saxon ancestry (and perhaps 1 or 2 existed in the Victorian era) became 100% a cultural Anglo-Saxon.

    Yes, you are correct that actual Protestantism in the theological sense has never been central to the mental and emotional make up of most English Elites. But then again, that is true of the vast majority of Continental Germanic Princes and rich businessmen who became Lutheran. They, like Henry VIII, made a break for political power and/or wealth acquisition. But that does not invalid the 'P' in WASP. Rather, it clarifies it: just as virtually all Germanic tribes left paganism for Arian and/or a Gnostic heresy before being brought around, Germanic peoples tended to embrace Reformation because it offered the prospect for more or better killing and material gain.

    Your ending will lead those who blame Jews for everything to assume you must be Jewish. They are correct that that attitude fits Jews perfectly, but what they miss is that it also fits WASPs perfectly.

    Corbyn's economics were uncosted promises of bread and circuses. How did the Brits fall for this nonsense? Maybe there's a clue in the recent poll that revealed that 17 million adult Britons do not even have the numerical abilities of an 11-year old. Given that Corbyn has talked of requisitioning properties (property rights be damned & viva the revolution!), we'd better not get on to those folks' verbal reasoning power.

    Corbyn’s economics were uncosted promises of bread and circuses. How did the Brits fall for this nonsense?

    It’s not as if the Conservatives were ruling in the interests of the British people. They’re just a bunch of globalist scum genociding the British nation by a combination of suppressed native reproduction and mass replacement immigration in the interests of the construction industry, the City of London and the owners of companies employing cheap immigrant labor to do contracted out government work such as hospital janitorial services.

    In fact, most of those voting for Corbyn probably just wanted to say “fuck off Thereason May.”

    The point of the Brexit referendum was to lock Britain into the EU despite the widespread opposition. Cameron lost his bet and was replaced by May, who was also anti-Brexit and seems well on the way to negating the effect of the referendum by destroying the Government’s mandate to pursue effective Brexit negotiations.

    Maybe there’s a clue in the recent poll that revealed that 17 million adult Britons do not even have the numerical abilities of an 11-year old.

    Wow, that makes one wonder what are the numerical abilities of a British 11-year-old are. Presumably not even equal to the numerical abilities of a five-year-old.

    The 3-day week was during Thatcher's predecessor as Tory prime minister, Ted Heath. The dead unburied for months was a tabloid myth. Back in the days before the internet and social media, the mainstream media had a monopoly on what the people were told. They always told likes about Labour.
    Actually, back in the 1970s, quality of life was far better for most people. The building societies lend what people could reasonably afford, around 2X salary over 25 years, the money coming from deposits from savers, who would subsequently apply for a mortage. This meant housing was priced at around 2X salaries plus a small deposit that could be saved from salary within 1-2 years. House prices now reflect what banks are ready to lend, not what is affordable. So mortages are longer, often with interest only repayments.
    Plus education was free. The buses were run by the municipalities that cross-subsidised remote routes with popular routes, so fares were affordable. Thatcher privatised that, so now, private companies compete on popular routes, and dont bother with isolated communites. Electricity, water and gas were affordable because they were state owned with CEOs that earned reasonable salaries, not millions.
    Dont come to me with your crap about 3 day week, unburied dead. All tory myths and propaganda.

    around 2X salaries plus a small deposit that could be saved from salary within 1-2 years.

    I remember 14% inflation. And the wages just about keeping up, after a bit of a lag each time lending rates and prices staggered up. Not like today, which is crucial. The mortgage just evaporated before the old man’s incredulous (Depression-baby) eyes.
    And based on a single ‘head of household’ or potential borrower’s salary. Wifey’s pin-money didn’t count, even if she was putting in a double shift sewing seat covers at Ford’s.
    None of this double-income-no-kids malarkey. Only the signature on the mortgage counts.
    I mean, your wife might kick the bucket through overwork, and then where would we be, as lenders?

    As for rubbish piled in the streets. I’ve seen that year after year since. Often caused by the binmen going on strike in response to undermanning and sweating rather than pay (they have to collect at a jog-trot now), and wealthy suburbanites in LandRovers for many miles around dropping off their black bags in whichever innercity zone they commuted through each morning. Not their problem if the bins weren’t being collected there either, is it?

    I paid 17% interest on my mortgage for over a year as I recall. A mortgage of 3.5 times income. To get that you needed a 10% deposit saved over at least a year with the Building Society at least at the monthly rate you expected to repay the mortgage.

    The rot started when the wife (or sometimes fiancee's) income was taken into account. Now everyone pays the maximum the Banks can extract from all the salaries in the house (even groups of friends house sharing) and women must work. Only the Banks and land owners benefit, not even the builders. A large fraction of modern woes results from the Banks overlending (the Building Societies were reluctant followers). Greed is it's own punishment.

    Relative to interest rates, modern house prices are actually modest. If interest rates rise, as they will Post Brexit, there will be a catastrophe of negative equity. That will drive us back into the EU and even into the Euro.

    I think that the gravediggers refused to work weekends. Individual bodies were not unburied for months but they were delayed for days over a period of months.

    Well the six point zero, zero, zero million figure must have been conjured out of thin air. I heard it first as a boy from a kid I met while were were on holiday in, I think it was in 1954. That the story was being pushed even by children at that early stage is consistent with Lenni Brenner's contention that the Holocaust story was promoted to justify the Jewish occupation of Palestine.

    But, we know Hitler didn't like Jews and that he killed lots of people he didn't like. Mostly, not with gas, but by working them to death, as in the case of an alleged 40,000 Russian prisoners of war who were worked to the point of exhaustion on the British Channel Island of Alderney, and then pushed off a high cliff.

    So there was surely a Jewish Holocaust, but it was part of a larger Holocaust. How many Jews died was probably in the millions but perhaps several short of six. And mostly they died by means other than by poisonous gas.

    But my interest is not so much the history of genocide but in the ongoing genocide of the European peoples, and it is that ongoing Holocaust and its historical context that I want to see as a mandatory part of the school curriculum. Perhaps rather than Holocaust Studies, the course should be entitled: How the European Treason Class are Genociding Their Own People -- NOW.

    " If that is so, why, will you ask me, did the opposition not win in France? "

    Four out of ten French voters voted for Mélenchon or for Marine le Pen.
    Both want to leave the EU, immigration divides them.

    Why did not six or more French vote against the EU, as they did in 2005 ?
    I suppose because nearly all media predict economic disaster if France leaves the EU.
    It is therefore that Brussels does anything to make Brexit a disaster for GB, should GB emerge better, economically, the EU is finished.

    The Corbyn problem is to choose between nationalism and socialism.
    Dutch 'socialists', PvdA, went back 29 seats, in the last election, to nine.
    They're now licking their wounds, one suggestion is 'that the PvdA must stop solidarity with immigrants'.
    I wonder how ethical considerations can be pushed aside for the interest of a party, those whose career expectations were built on that party.

    Socialists all over Europe seem still unable to see that cultures exist.

    “If that is so, why, will you ask me, did the opposition not win in France?”

    Because too many voters in most of Continental Europe still believe the swill that is spoon-fed to them by the state-controlled media. It’s why Merkel will win comfortaby despite doing more damage to the German nation and culture than the Kaiser and Hitler combined. It’s why Brexit is not just a political statement as much as it is a survival strategy of escaping a Union of Koolaid drinkers bent on mutual suicide.

    In Britain, by contrast, a “disagreeable” Corbyn, as portrayed by the media, was still taken as being more sympathetic to the common folk outside the M-25, and even the leftists living in the outskirts of London, than the phony-Labourites following in the footsteps of Blair and Brown.

    There's something about Corbyn's down-to-earth leftism that doesn't fit with Jewish leftism. Corbyn seems to be a true believer in workers-first policies, however misguided, while Jewish leftists sound like they're manipulating the ideology as an attack on society's "have's" and privileged classes.

    The difference is subtle in practice, but the psychological motivations are separate and distinct. One is naivety, the other is resentment.

    If you start with false premises, everything you subsequently extrapolate from those premises will likewise carry along the original error and thus exhibit error within themselves; aka: garbage in, garbage out.

    There were the ‘Nazis’ with the mythological '6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers' and there were the ‘Nazis’ without the mythological ’6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers’.

    In the US, as in England, that process was begun by WASP Elites, with Jews being grafted in as allies of WASP Elites.
     
    except that the Elite in the British Isles isn't AngloSaxon. That little matter was sorted out 951 years ago.
    And probably not even Protestant. They leave that sort of thing to the abos; Ulstermen, Outer Hebridean islanders, or the Welsh.
    Anything else you'd like to blame us native English for while you're at it? Slavery, perhaps? The Potato Famine? Opium Wars? The rise of Hitler? The Partition of India? Don't worry, we never take offence. Water off a duck's back mate, we get that stuff 24/7.
    [laughs oppressively]

    Your quibbling sounds Jewish, we might say, if we also don’t know that the WASP Elites have a history of doing exactly the same thing to get out from under what they have done to benefit themselves at the expense of everyone else (including the English working class).

    Yes, the Normans invaded and won. Yes, the Normans brought with them large numbers of Celtic Bretons (who were British Celts who fled Angle and Saxon Germanic depredations). No, the Germanic pagans invading Britain did not exterminate the native Celts, nor force them all west into what would be known later to them as Wales and north into the future Scotland. But the vast majority of native Celts in southern Britain were made serfs under Germanic warlords.

    The matter is not one of magic blood that tells everything, that foreordains all. The matter is cultural assimilation, because that produces cultural proclivities spread by people who are not genetically the founders of the cultural patterns.

    As the Normans in Britain, slowly over centuries, lost their French language, replacing it with English, they also assimilated to other parts of Anglo-Saxon culture. Eventually, even that lord who could prove almost no Anglo-Saxon ancestry (and perhaps 1 or 2 existed in the Victorian era) became 100% a cultural Anglo-Saxon.

    Yes, you are correct that actual Protestantism in the theological sense has never been central to the mental and emotional make up of most English Elites. But then again, that is true of the vast majority of Continental Germanic Princes and rich businessmen who became Lutheran. They, like Henry VIII, made a break for political power and/or wealth acquisition. But that does not invalid the ‘P’ in WASP. Rather, it clarifies it: just as virtually all Germanic tribes left paganism for Arian and/or a Gnostic heresy before being brought around, Germanic peoples tended to embrace Reformation because it offered the prospect for more or better killing and material gain.

    Your ending will lead those who blame Jews for everything to assume you must be Jewish. They are correct that that attitude fits Jews perfectly, but what they miss is that it also fits WASPs perfectly.

    Concerning the six million, I said:

    (a)

    ... the six point zero, zero, zero million figure must have been conjured out of thin air.
     
    and (b)

    How many Jews died was probably in the millions but perhaps several short of six.
     
    It seems unlikely to me that anything like the exact number of people from Babi Ya to the Warsaw ghetto, Auschwitz, Lithuania, Latvia, etc. who were killed by the Nazis and their collaborators in occupied Europe solely because they were Jews will ever be known with certainty. Moreover, I assume that when Jews make reference to six million it is simply a term, like the Biblical 40, for a large number, specifically, a large number of Jews.

    ...not only that, but if 6,000,000 jews had been cremated, the process would have lasted into the mid 1950s. It takes HOURS to cremate ONE body. Germans were excellent engineers, but could not refute the laws of physics.
    Actually, the number of non-combatant deaths (from official International Red Cross figures) is approximately 731,000--NOT 6,000,000.
    Another point of interest is that according to census figures of the time, there were 3.8 million jews in Europe before WW2 and 4.3 million jews counted immediately after the cessation of hostilities. the claim of 6,000,000 jews exterminated just doesn't add up...

    around 2X salaries plus a small deposit that could be saved from salary within 1-2 years.
     
    I remember 14% inflation. And the wages just about keeping up, after a bit of a lag each time lending rates and prices staggered up. Not like today, which is crucial. The mortgage just evaporated before the old man's incredulous (Depression-baby) eyes.
    And based on a single 'head of household' or potential borrower's salary. Wifey's pin-money didn't count, even if she was putting in a double shift sewing seat covers at Ford's.
    None of this double-income-no-kids malarkey. Only the signature on the mortgage counts.
    I mean, your wife might kick the bucket through overwork, and then where would we be, as lenders?

    As for rubbish piled in the streets. I've seen that year after year since. Often caused by the binmen going on strike in response to undermanning and sweating rather than pay (they have to collect at a jog-trot now), and wealthy suburbanites in LandRovers for many miles around dropping off their black bags in whichever innercity zone they commuted through each morning. Not their problem if the bins weren't being collected there either, is it?

    I paid 17% interest on my mortgage for over a year as I recall. A mortgage of 3.5 times income. To get that you needed a 10% deposit saved over at least a year with the Building Society at least at the monthly rate you expected to repay the mortgage.

    The rot started when the wife (or sometimes fiancee’s) income was taken into account. Now everyone pays the maximum the Banks can extract from all the salaries in the house (even groups of friends house sharing) and women must work. Only the Banks and land owners benefit, not even the builders. A large fraction of modern woes results from the Banks overlending (the Building Societies were reluctant followers). Greed is it’s own punishment.

    Relative to interest rates, modern house prices are actually modest. If interest rates rise, as they will Post Brexit, there will be a catastrophe of negative equity. That will drive us back into the EU and even into the Euro.

    I think that the gravediggers refused to work weekends. Individual bodies were not unburied for months but they were delayed for days over a period of months.

    It is German insistence on internal devaluation via wages [for decades inside Germany and then in the periphery] and a refusal to pursue fiscal measures, not the Euro per se, is at the heart of the problem. Talk to Jens Weidemann or Herr Schaeuble.

    Yes. The size of the German (also Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean and arguably Singaporean) foreign exchange surplus is a direct measure of the suppression of wages.

    In no place [in the document defining the currency regime] is stated this 'impossibility'. That Europeans surrendered a vital option to Germans, the Bundesbank blockheads to be precise, is an obstacle for Europeans to remove. Speaking exclusively about price competitiveness hints, yet again, to a North European hard-money liquidationist mentality which has peremptorily dismissed fiscal spending even when those same economies are burdened with chronic surpluses with the attendant deflation.

    Re:

    Unless pr0tectionist measures are deployed to return jobs from the Rest to the West, massive money creation to provide “stimulus” will suck in more stuff from the sweatshops of Asia, etc. resulting in currency devaluation. The end result: global wage leveling down to Third World rates, which is the globalist goal, as Jimmy Goldsmith explained at the time Bill Clinton was signing away workers rights by signing up to the 1994 GATT agreement.

Potatoes were a penny a pound, a bus ride was three ha'pence, and that was when there were 240 pennies in a pound.

    Britain then was a white country for white people, where most people still believed in God, motherhood, and good manners. It was a time when the idea of importing a mass of cheap labour to undercut the wages of British workers would have been considered treason. It was a time when governments had an industrial policy that aimed to retain capital and technology at home, while "dragging Britain kicking and screaming through the white heat of a technological revolution" as Harold Wilson put it during the 1964 election campaign, ,i.e., upgrading workforce skills at public expense.

    Not quite the reality.

    The Sterling Crisis faithfully reflected UK economic performance in the early to mid 1970's. Known as the "Sick Man of Europe" Great Britain (1974-76) had the highest inflation in Europe, the lowest rise in GNP, the highest unemployment and the lowest output per man/hour in manufacturing - being seen to fail on all counts. Sterling plummeted in value as the country was unable to handle the big international rise in commodity prices from 1972 to 1974. Germany fought rising prices with higher interest rates and deflation but the British Socialist/Marxist planners decided to support their highly inefficient system in Keynesian style by protecting public spending.

    That's not to say that government planning is always a failure. It just has to accept the needs of real technological development rather than Marxist "class war" dogma.

    Yes, protectionism is a key issue underlying the popularity of Corbyn.

    Those old enough to remember know that Britain's post-war era of democratic socialism was not all bad, in fact, it was mostly was pretty good. Sure folks were poor, but stuff was cheap. Potatoes were a penny a pound, a bus ride was three ha'pence, and that was when there were 240 pennies in a pound.

    Britain then was a white country for white people, where most people still believed in God, motherhood, and good manners. It was a time when the idea of importing a mass of cheap labour to undercut the wages of British workers would have been considered treason. It was a time when governments had an industrial policy that aimed to retain capital and technology at home, while "dragging Britain kicking and screaming through the white heat of a technological revolution" as Harold Wilson put it during the 1964 election campaign, ,i.e., upgrading workforce skills at public expense.

    Now, after two generations of spiv Tory rule and fake Labour government, the natives have grown restless. Corbyn in power may prove to be a disaster, his economic ideas obsolete or idiotic. But to many, anything that looks like a return to the Britain-first, workers' rights days of early post-war Britain looks like a chance worth betting on. I agree.

    Not a realistic analysis.

    Harold Wilson was a pragmatist, not a socialist/Marxist. During his years in office Wilson had to deal with powerful unions that obstructed most measures of industrial rationalization. Nevertheless, there were more coal mines closed during the Wilson years, making way for the use of cheap imported coal, than during the Thatcher years, although Thatcher is lauded for her firm (actually brutal) handling of the miners. Other pragmatic economic actions by the Wilson government were currency controls and the selective employment tax to promote investment in the UK manufacturing.

    The sterling devaluations during Wilson's premiership were consistent with the policy of full employment, which was largely achieved, and with it, general prosperity. Under the succeeding Conservative administrations both unemployment and inflation rose, and it was my distinct impression as a regular visitor to the UK that the people, in general, smelled distinctly less well washed under Thatcher than they had done during the prosperous Wilson years.

    Comparing German post-war economic development with that of Britain and attributing differences to the success or failure of this or that political leader is absurd. The conditions of the two countries following WW2 were totally different. The Germans were chastened, much of their industrial infrastructure had been either destroyed by allied bombing or dismantled by the occupation authorities, their great industrial corporations had been disbanded, and their labor unions reconstituted on rational lines. The result: the emergence of Germany's dynamic mitelstand companies under entrepreneural management, fully backed by government and unobstructed by organized labor, thus allowing rapid economic growth.

    Britain, in contrast, was complacent in victory, pursuing first, democratic communism with widespread nationalization of unreconstructed industries under often incompetent management, followed by an almost equally complacent conservative government unwilling to fix Britain's chronic labor relations problems, under a senile Churchill. Labor unions that had played a major role in government during the war remained unreformed and obstructive of industrial rationalization. Hence Britain's unreconstructed business sector was relentlessly impeded by powerful, often Communist-dominated unions over which Wilson's government had minimal control since it depended on them for electoral and financial support. Wilson's dependence on the unions did not, however, make him a commie, and in fact he sought to prevent "the bed-sit crowd getting their feet under the table" (i.e., a bloated public sector). But with a weak mandate, there was only so much he was able to accomplish.

    In the US, as in England, that process was begun by WASP Elites, with Jews being grafted in as allies of WASP Elites.
     
    except that the Elite in the British Isles isn't AngloSaxon. That little matter was sorted out 951 years ago.
    And probably not even Protestant. They leave that sort of thing to the abos; Ulstermen, Outer Hebridean islanders, or the Welsh.
    Anything else you'd like to blame us native English for while you're at it? Slavery, perhaps? The Potato Famine? Opium Wars? The rise of Hitler? The Partition of India? Don't worry, we never take offence. Water off a duck's back mate, we get that stuff 24/7.

    He wasn’t a Marxist but, as we are to consider equally damning, he smoked a pipe. LOL

    British leftist intellectual in tweeds promulgating the unquestionable truths of “Scientific Socialism”.

    Wow, what a confusion of misinformation, false assumptions, and illogical conclusions.

    The essence of Wilson’s political philosophy was encapsulated in his remark that “British Socialism owed far more to Methodism than to Marx”.

    Or, as Geoffrey Goodman wrote in a Guardian’s obituary, Wilson’s political motivation “was embedded not in ideology but in his intuitive sense of decency and his powerful drive to try and spread that decency among his fellow citizens.”

    Wilson was a child of the respectable lower-middle class, who rose from behind the lace curtains of a modest Huddersfield home, to occupy No. 10 Downing St, without in the process losing either his common sense or his sense of common decency.

    As for Wilson in “tweeds,” that is a complete inversion of reality. It was Conservative prime ministers, Harold MacMillan, Douglas-Hume and the like who wore tweeds. To appear be-tweeded on a Scottish grouse moor on the Glorious 12th is the last thing Harold Wilson would have done.

    As for “scientific socialism” you are wittingly or otherwise, confusing Wilson’s enthusiasm for technology as a means to the creation of wealth, an entirely sound if mundane idea, with the most doctrinaire form of Communism. Really an egregious error.

    Great Britain was an internationally acknowledged economic disaster

    Oh you mean those shyster shills for the Money Power over at the Economist said Britain was an economic disaster.

    The reality, however, looks rather different from points of view other than that of bond holders. Wilson’s view would undoubtedly have been the same as billionaire Jimmy Goldsmith, that the economy exists for the people, not for the sole benefit of a plutocratic globalist elite. And as measured by the experience of the majority of the people, the Wilson years were, on the whole better than during the Thatcher years and the following years of spiv Tory* and Fake Labor rule, leading to the current era of white genocide in Europe and the replacement of the British people as a majority in their own homeland within 30 years.

    I would take another Methodist Wilson with a first-class honors degree in economics from Cambridge University over the scoundrel leadership Britain has had to endure for the last several decades.

    antisemite: any person or thought that a Jew doesn't like

    Why is that you and those like you want 6,000,000 Jews to be dead? I don't.
    Jews should be elated that 6,000,000 of their brethren were not murdered.
    And as usual you haven't the backbone to debate your laughable 'holocau$t' religion.

    Your name calling indicates desperation & panic.

    "...we’ve often fantasized about drawing up an indictment against Adolf Hitler himself. And to put into that indictment the major charge: the Final Solution of the Jewish question in Europe, the physical annihilation of Jewry. And then it dawned upon us, what would we do? We didn’t have the evidence.”
    - 'holocaust historian' Raul Hilberg,
    from https://youtu.be/2q51wqEE1fM
     
    John Ball's book, Air Photo Evidence which debunks the 'extermination of Jews' nonsense, can be seen / downloaded here:
    https://archive.org/details/AirPhotoEvidenceAuschwitz

    We're talking about an alleged '6M Jews & 5M others' ... 11,000,000.
    There is not a single verifiable excavated enormous mass grave with contents actually SHOWN, not just claimed, (recall the claim of 900,000 buried at Treblinka, 1,250,000 at Auschwitz, or 250,000 at Sobibor) even though Jews claim they still exist and claim to know exactly where these alleged enormous mass graves are.
    Note: actually show us excavations & their contents, not some Zionist liar claiming mass graves where none exist, and not showing the alleged, verifiable enormous human remains of Jews.

    The Industry now claims that ca. 2,000,000 Jews were shot & killed by the Einsatzgruppen, so, anyone, please show us the excavated enormous mass graves that are claimed to exist, their locations are allegedly known.
    Is that:
    100 graves of 20,000?
    200 graves of 10,000?
    400 graves of 5,000?
    500 graves of 4,000?
    1000 graves of 2000?
    2000 graves of 1000?

    The '6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers' are scientifically impossible frauds.
    see the 'holocaust' scam debunked here:

    No name calling, level playing field debate here:
    http://forum.codoh.com

    …not only that, but if 6,000,000 jews had been cremated, the process would have lasted into the mid 1950s. It takes HOURS to cremate ONE body. Germans were excellent engineers, but could not refute the laws of physics.
    Actually, the number of non-combatant deaths (from official International Red Cross figures) is approximately 731,000–NOT 6,000,000.
    Another point of interest is that according to census figures of the time, there were 3.8 million jews in Europe before WW2 and 4.3 million jews counted immediately after the cessation of hostilities. the claim of 6,000,000 jews exterminated just doesn’t add up…
