The Coffee House Wall Write ruthlessly what you believe to be the truth, or else shut up!


The Coffee House Wall – January 2021

This is the Coffee House Wall for this month. I won't say that it is your chance to communicate with us, as we are all in this together. It is, nevertheless, the Conservative Blog post that has no particular theme, and where everything is on topic. Let's just remember that we want to avoid ad hominem attacks on others. We don't want to engage with trolls. We want to moderate our language ourselves as responsible and mature adults, choosing to use fruity language only where it is necessary. This is our opportunity to show what the Spectator Coffee House Wall could have been like.

  1. I’ve not been around, my life is busy in a different way, but I will try to keep this place tidy and useful for those of you who still visit and post. All the best for 2021, as far as we are permitted by the authorities.

  2. Happy New Year, Peter, and all the luck whatever endeavour you’re pursuing. The blog has lost many, but it seems to have an unexplainable capacity to survive, thanks for keeping it going.

    Btw, should you have not started with ‘January 2021’?

  3. Happy New Year Peter, with best wishes for you and your family. Many thanks for updating the Wall.

  4. Fixed it! I guess subconsciously I wanted to give 2020 another go!

  5. Very best of everything, Peter – and also to other Wallsters. I hope all those who are “still with us” will come back here this year!

  6. Peter,
    Thank you for creating a new edition of the CHW, and for providing this useful facility.
    Dark days, but they cannot last forever.
    Best wishes for 2021, health and happiness to you, yours and all CHWallsters.

  7. Baron,

    The benefits of global warming? Here’s Pavlin from Varna, BG, out for a ride by the Black Sea on New Year’s Day. Sunny and almost tropical at 12C !

    In all the videos showcasing BG that he’s shot recently he always manages to eat well. They’ve got some really nice, proper grub over there!

    Will warm weather last for him? Whenever I’ve flown over there in February, from 38,000ft Bulgaria has always looked pretty FROZEN UP to me! Pavlin is hoping to ride to Magadan sometime in 2021 but I think that the ‘flu d’etat may yet thwart his plans!

    Is 2021 the year to get back out on your JAWA, Baron?

  8. With all the problems we’ve got at the moment no one seems to be giving a cheer or showing their appreciation for the hard work being put in by the people working hard behind the scenes to make sure you’re bills keep arriving.
    I don’t think anyone has missed sending me a bill for anything.
    That is dedication in these difficult times and should be recognised.
    Let’s have a big hand of appreciation for the bill collectors.

  9. Well good to see that the Wall skipped 2020 altogether. Perhaps, given Boris’ tidings of joy this evening, we need to skip 2021 as well.
    Cannot wait for my jab so that I can live again.
    Thank you Peter from Maidstone for keeping this show on the road. I must come more often.

  10. EC @ January 4th, 2021 – 12:34

    Getting on the Jawa again, EC? Nope, that avenue of pleasure has been closed to the blue veined barbarian, the boss fears she would be truly stuck if anything were to happen to the one who has three functions to perform in the family, he’s the banker (she reckons money grows not just on trees but on the lawn, the drive ….), the driver (she doesn’t drive, it’s beyond her), and the dishwasher, arghhhh

  11. Marshal Roberts @ January 4th, 2021 – 21:47

    Skipping 2021, Marshal, would deprive you of the joy of the glimpse of freedom coming to us all in 2025 (or is it 2030?).

  12. John birch @ January 4th, 2021 – 17:02

    If you were here, John, you would see Baron responding to your challenge, applauding the bill issuers and also the HMRC that demands tax returns to be submitted by the end of this month. How true that death and taxes are unavoidable.

  13. This is one week old but worth your reading, it’s what common sense sounds like:

  14. Someone that posts as moneycirsus had this to say on Jan 4th, Baron tried to get more on the Washington DC story, failed.

    The moneycircus’s claim that pathogenic priming causing autoimmunity and may be a feature of the vaccination has not been widely discussed, does anyone have anything on it? The link seems to support it, but doesn’t specify how many get affected.

    Moneycircus: “In the late 1960s, children in Washington DC received a vaccine for RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), which is similar to coronavirus. Testing was foreshortened, with no tests on animals. The children got a good antibody response, but when they later caught a virus, 80 percent of the children given the shot were hospitalised with severe respiratory disease, and two died.

    Similar findings emerged from later attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine. Animal studies found disease enhancement due to pathogenic priming.

    They developed 35 vaccines between 2002 and 2014 and chose the 4 most promising. They tested them on animals.

    The ferrets had a robust antibody response but when vaccinated animals were exposed to wild virus after being vaccinated, they got inflammation across the whole body and died.”

  15. LOCKDOWN 3.0
    Paul Joseph Watson

    For anyone doubting that history doesn’t repeat itself there’s a nice bit @ 3mins 20sec detailing the some very familiar regulations on Channel Islands… under Nazi occupation!

  16. I would like someone to care enough
    Be brave and at least try
    Find a ladder taller than treetops
    Come write on this wall and say hi

    How do you open comments up?
    Do not make walls shutting out
    Spiral into solitude
    One day you’ll be happy without

    Maybe it is the technology
    Distracting from the wall we scale
    You need to hit the power button
    Reach the top without fail

  17. Surviving lockdown
    March was the start
    Closing down cities
    Families living apart

    Surviving lockdown
    That’s what I’m doing
    Surviving shopping
    Queuing and queuing

    Surviving lockdown
    Out of bed at six or seven
    Days are all the same
    Not what I’d call livin’

    Surviving lockdown
    Trying to remember the date
    Is it Saturday or Sunday?
    Feeling like a prison inmate

    Surviving lockdown
    Finding something to do
    Baking bread or anything
    Just to get through

    Surviving lockdown
    Till they find a cure
    Surviving lockdown
    I’ll need to endure

    Surviving lockdown
    Then it was July
    Feeling so lucky
    When so many die

    Surviving lockdown
    It’ll end one day
    And all back to normal
    Well, that’s what they say.

    Thought it was over
    But just the beginning
    I even got sober.

    Today it is worse
    This cold outside.
    For three months
    I am going to hide.

  18. EC @ January 5th, 2021 – 17:12

    One wonders, EC, if someone would have the courage to show the graphs that appear after about 5min from the start, in particular the one for all deaths for the last three years, the Dec 2020 peak is noticeably lower than those in 2019 and 2018.

    He also leaves on possible explanation of the high figure of support for the lockdown, people employed by the State or its agencies, some 5.5mn of them, cannot but back the house arrests, they get paid through transfer payments, the taxes of those employed in the private sector (or Government borrowings).

  19. Fergus Pickering @ January 5th, 2021 – 18:17 & 19:26

    Excellent, young sir, to declaim to the future generations (if there are any before it’s all over because it’s going to get worser still).

  20. Baron
    January 5th, 2021 – 22:01

    Poor uneducated one
    Be of good cheer
    Despair not
    The vaccine is here

  21. Just in case you’re that knowledgable.

    In October last year Baron bought Moto G9plus, the gadget went berserk within days, John Lewis agreed to take it back, refunded the money, Baron bought exactly the same model from the same retailer thinking that to get the same piece of crap cannot happens twice from the same supplier.

    It did, three times in the last two months and abit. A woman’s voice comes on, talks some gibberish, nothing works, the screen sometimes changes, other times gets frozen then begins to flicker without Baron touching or pushing anything, that sort of stuff.

    When that happened the first time Baron contacted ‘’ the wizards suggested the battery should be taken out, sent Baron detail instructions that would have meant restoring the factory settings, losing everything unless it was backed up by google (it was). What sort of experts are these guys, they only charge five quid, but they should know the battery cannot be removed from Moto G9plus.

    The instruction set wasn’t needed anyway because the phone corrected itself, just as it went wrong, it went fine. It was non-operational about four hours in the first breakdown, a day shorter few hours in the second, now in its third broken mode it’s already off for more than two days.

    Does anyone know what to do or can you suggest what would you do if you were facing the same problem? Any suggestion will be gratefully received.

  22. Fergus Pickering @ January 6th, 2021 – 08:28

    Nice one, Fergus, but the poor uneducated worries not about the vaccine, but his mobile phone (as you can see), quite frankly, fugg both, Baron is thoroughly fed up with life, everything disappoints, fugging everything.

  23. Baron – 08:40

    You have far more patience with recalcitrant tech than me!

    1. Return it to John Lewis for a refund. *
    2. Never buy another Motorola product.
    3. Buy a Samsung, or a Nokia.

    * If JL won’t refund you then use the damn thing for target practice!
    (… or do a Hillary and smash it to smithereens with a lump hammer)

  24. Consider what the effect of the educator ‘spiteful mutants’ will be in ethno-centric Britain as HMG quietly recognises the fast growing stupidity of its fast growing multicultural population by abolishing both education and examinations and their replacement by assessment.
    “Britain (comprising North and parts of South America, Africa, Asia and Australia) is the most genius nation ever known.”
    Dr E Dutton.

  25. How the mighty fall. Four years ago I rejoiced with much of the free world that a breath of fresh air was entering the White House. That finally there was a President not beholden to the graft and greed and special interests of the Washington establishment. A man that truly would not get sucked into the swamp even if he could not drain it. His economic miracle began to help us all. Then came the pandemic and he began to flounder and flip flop. Then the stupidity after the election. It is one thing to do a George Bush and question hanging chads in Florida but verging on the ridiculous to go on creating after the four swing states had declared him the loser.
    His stupid actions yesterday have set social conservatism back for a generation in America.
    And probably here.

  26. EC @ January 6th, 2021 – 11:29

    Good suggestions, EC, thanks, the one needing a harper appeals very much, is close to be executed (if a girls selling the gadgets at our local Tesco fails to help).

  27. Noa @ January 7th, 2021 – 16:58

    As a nation, Noa, we are wasting vast resources on education, this should cease, everyone child should be taught how to read (those pupils failing the proscribed level of reading proficiency should repeat the same class again), also basic arithmetic, and that’s it, but during this process the teachers should spot the 10-15% of the able and willing and those should receive the whole attention of the teaching profession with the aim of selection from that group again between 10-15% for an academic grilling paid for by the State that is the taxpayer.

    Such a system would cost noticeably less than the one we are struggling with today what with some 15% of school-leavers unable to read and count, it would benefit the country, boost social mobility, and enrich (rightfully) the able cum willing few.

  28. Marshal Roberts @ January 7th, 2021 – 20:34

    What you make of this, Marshall? You reckon it was he who prodded the crowd, or someone else?

  29. I love these conspiracy websites, Baron. The fact remains that Trump’s speech which I have watched again either inflamed passions to the point that the people who invaded the Capital were incited to do it or allowed the media to view it that way. Either way it was stupid. Democracies cannot behave that way. Jeremy Corbyn, remember him, had an army of nutcases who he could easily have called onto the streets to storm Parliament but he did not. Donald Trump has just released a Statesman like podium statement on Twitter guaranteeing an orderly transfer and conceding defeat. This is what we expect.

  30. Marshal Roberts @ January 8th, 2021 – 05:45

    You reckon then, Marshall, that the clip showing the police removing the barriers, the guy dressed like an Indian attending both the BLM rallies and the recent Capitol break-in, it’s all fake, do you? Hmmm

  31. This chap Hanson talks Baron’s language, not only has everyone to cool down, those in governance should also use the same yardstick to judge both sides to the dispute equally, Biden & co are patently not doing it.

    The 25th is a non-starter, it’s just the opposite of cooling down, it’s not doable, the section 4 has never been invoked before, first, the Cabinet members would have to agree to the Donalds removal by a 2/3 majority, inform both Houses, the President can contest it, then the two Houses have to vote, again by the same ratio … there isn’t enough time to do it even if the procedure were to start now.

  32. You shouldn’t;t miss it, not only does she talk sense, she’s looks gorgeous:

    The fat piss-poor fuggwit got floored beautifully, and rightfully so, he asked her to give him interview than yapping more than she’s allowed to talk, he interrupted her often, she didn’t interrupt him, not once, and his bleating was the standard woke agitprop that they have been pumping out for the full four years of the Donald’s presidency. Arghhh

  33. Nigel Farage on the Developing Battle for Individual Liberty in England

    What are you doing to my country while I am away?!

  34. Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs weer bussed into the demonstration and Capito; po;ice let them in and showed them where to go once they had reached the houses of Congress … by whom? Time for a few more people to take the red pi;;, I think.

  35. Slightly off topic, I enjoyed this story in the DM reporting that the Emperor’s consort, Carrie Simmonds, has now been joined by her mother, in order to look after the latest addition to Boris’ extended family. In addition to such musings as, will she pay rent to help with his depleted finances, or will she be entitled to police protection, the most important question for the popular press will be, how will she be addressed. Surely the prime contender for her title, one of many recent Downing St honorific, will be Queen Nut-nut?

  36. It’s a pleasure to see the Police cracking down on hardened criminals at last and marching them off the beaches and promenades of our once frightened and crime-infested public places with such ferocity and determination.

  37. Simon Parkes – 10th January Update Current News

  38. Baron
    January 8th, 2021 – 13:03

    Baron you probably read Michael Snyder whose view is that the radical Left will go to extreme lengths in order to get what they want, that these were agents provocateurs and the whole Capitol Hill riot was a set-up. In addition to the fact that Trump supporters are almost always extremely peaceful while many of those storming the Capitol were being very violent he identifies six crucially important issues:

    · Security: he has video footage showing that police opened the barricades surrounding the Capitol, and purposely allowed protesters to storm the building.

    · Antifa: there were several videos of Antifa activists being brought into the heart of Washington by bus with an escort.

    · The Horned Shaman: the most famous ‘protester’ from the chaos was ‘the guy with the Viking horns’ – an individual who was photographed at a BLM rally in Arizona wearing the same outfit in June; at a ‘climate activism’ event in 2009; and goes by the name of Jake Angeli, on Wednesday posing as a hardcore Trump supporter.

    · Few arrests: most of the protesters were allowed to leave without being arrested.

    · Timing: just as a debate about election irregularities evidence was about to begin in Congress, the riots conveniently broke out.

    · Cui bono?: at a stroke, the activists managed to neuter the debate over the legitimacy of the election, and scuppered the Trump movement as well.

  39. Malfleur @ January 10th, 2021 – 19:08

    Who’s this guy, Malfleur, is he the brother of Q, the famous voice from the deep that was predicting many a thing, not one has happened? Arghhh

    Baron will believe it when he sees it, to go the insurrection route could not avoid a civil war, it would be insane, not even the Donald could contemplate something of this sort, it could be the end of the Union.

    The spreading of it is also why those trying to shut us up use guys like him as an example of fake news that genuinely disturb. Why should he be privy to something that must be the toppest security? Who is he anyway? Can you enlighten, please ?

  40. Marshal Roberts @ January 10th, 2021 – 19:38

    Good points, Marshall, but the horned guy is in support of everything that smells of breaking the law, also anything breakable close by, apparently he’s also a supporter of the Donald, attended Antifa demonstrations carrying a placard in support of him, the rest seems indeed true.

  41. Noa @ January 10th, 2021 – 11:38

    Anyone were to tell Baron few years back scenes of this kind would be happening in Britain, he would have answered ‘it’s more likely a choir of pigs will fly over London singing the tune “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift’. Truly unbelievable that.

    Btw, the tune was chosen because the girl’s gorgeous, and so out of reach, no?

  42. Baron, 22.38
    It may be fake news Mi’lud.
    Dorsetshire Police, in between closing down the cream tea shoppes industry, have investigated and said that it weren’t them that were arresting OAPs and carting them off in handcuffs. Apparently it was wicked aunty-lockdown demonstrators. 480 of whom were shot in reprisal on the prom by Bournemouth’s crack SWAT squad.

  43. Noa @ January 11th, 2021 – 09:16

    You mat have missed it, Noa, but Baron has said more than once he is easily confused, and you posting is doing just that. What is the truth then? Was the arrest staged? By whom?

    The best thing for the blue veined barbarian will be to go back to reading books, he has four to get through, and that’s what he’s going to do straight away.

  44. WE had no vaccines, we had to have lockdowns, we have a number of vaccines now coming billions, millions are getting the jab, we still have lockdowns, the man in charge is considering tougher restrictions, truly house arrests, one would be allowed to leave one’s abode only once a week.

    What are the vaccines for then?

  45. The American progressives and their MSM poodles are beside themselves still, have reached in an uncontrollable frenzy, gone truly mad about the the occupation of the Capitol, in their eyes it’s close to the most heinous crime ever, an unspeakable transgression, an unforgivable wrong that hits at the core of democracy.


    What made American great wasn’t the Capitol, the Federal set-up, the apparatchiks feeding on the toiling of the masses, it was businesses and farms, small and big, run by millions of ordinary Americans that created what American is today, it will again be the same businesses and farms that will, one hopes, make America great again.

    The MSM poodles should have gone mad when the Antifa and BLM were burning and looting the businesses, destroying the creative heart of the country, scaring ordinary people, the only wealth creators in any society including the American Republic.


  46. Sorry, it should be vaccines costing (and not coming) @ 22:57

    Also, in the other posting ‘what America is today’ (and not what American is today) @ 23:10.


  47. Not fake news, just embarrassment by the police that they were caught in the act.

  48. Baron
    We watch events unfolding in the States with horror and fear for the future, both for its people and for we ourselves in the once free world who depend on the now crumbling rock that was the basis of our democratic freedoms.
    When the Berlin Wall came down we now understand that we witnessed, not the end of history and the triumph of the West, but the triumph of Marxism and the beginning of our destruction.

  49. Talking about eye candy, here’s a young lady one would happily discuss Edmund Burke’s Recollections with…

  50. Noa – 20:33

    Absolutely. Those are my thoughts exactly.

    The planned “armed protests” that are going to be staged outside each of the state Capitols on Saturday is a stupid idea too. Dumb asses!

    Infiltration by agents provocateur from the usual leftist fascistic factions will ensure that they are not peaceful and the resulting deaths will be used as the justification for the long planned gun grab.

  51. Noa, January 13th, 2021 – 10:49

    Careful Noa,

    There’s a lot of Glamourflage going on there…

    File under: Moses, Mt. Nebo etc.

  52. Why, instead of focusing exclusively on vaccines, don’t we go for a widespread plasma treatment? There’s by now a large pool of people that have recovered from the virus, their plasma (or B-cells) contains antibodies, more importantly it also contains T-helper cells (CD4+cells, or CD4 positives) that are indispensable for our adoptive immune system, that’s the one that creates anti-bodies against the body invaders.

    We should make it worthwhile to the plasma donors to attract as many as possible, we’ve paid billions to acquire synthetic vaccines that don’t prevent our getting infected with the virus merely lessen the symptoms, why cannot every plasma donor be rewarded with (say) £200 per session (the plasma in the donor’s body gets replenished within 48 hours max). The plasma is natural, human made as opposed to the synthetic vaccines, no risk of any infection, side effects.

    For anyone getting ‘infused’ with plasma should be by far preferable to getting the vaccine jab.

  53. Jeff Taylor’s latest gives you something different to ruminate about, Baron.

    “Merging Central Banks?! ”

    An “innovation” too far if you ask me… which you didn’t.
    Basically, if Rishi Sunak is in favour of it there’s nowt in it for thee and me!

  54. Baron – 16:34

    Meanwhile, my chum in a one room flat in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has just been put on TOTAL lockdown until August 1st. Martial law: it’s for the ‘greater good’ and by extension his own good dontcha know!

  55. @Jack and Twatter fucks up over the Ugandan GE!

    You’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

  56. I had not seen this interview before.

    “Enoch Powell on Being Called A Racist”

    Enoch at his articulate best, attempting to set the record straight.

  57. Grumpy old bugger Simon Ellis sums it up without adornment. Immigrants, usually malcontents and ner-do-wells in their own countries, come here to be failures in ours.
    Dutton would say that they are genetic rejects unfit for their own gene pool and contributing to the idiotisation of ours. Who would disagree?

  58. Wetherspoons has been curiously reminiscent of the C18 City of London coffee houses, or perhaps more contemporaneously likev the underground samiizdat in acting as a forum for public information and debate with its Sceptics posters hiding the otherwise closed and dusty interiors.
    It’s sad that Wetherspoons are taking down their posters, but the UKs town centres are dead and most of their customers are unlikely to be interested in the finer points of LJ Sumption’s legal argument. Still, the good news is that may be updated and there are some good comments in the letters.

  59. Enoch Powell on The Post-Imperialism Of Britain And India

    He dealt very politely with Jonathan Miller, I think.

  60. EC @ January 13th, 2021 – 17:43

    Under all the jargon of ‘creating something new that’s bigger than the parts thereof’, EC, it feels the BIS is doing a preparatory work for the introduction of virtual currency, no paper money anymore, everything digital, instead of a wallet full (or empty) of banknotes it will be the app on a mobile gadget, any gadget that will facilitate monetary transaction everywhere in the world, unquestionably convenient, but also furnishing the means of a full control of each and every one of us.

    And why stop at the virtual money? One could easily imagine a chip implanted inside the human body that will contain, apart from other stuff such as one’s medical history, next of kin and whatever, also a passport to everything one’s allowed to do (not barred from) such as enter a supermarket, school, place of work, one’s home, a car …

    What would George Orwell make of it then?

  61. EC @ January 13th, 2021 – 17:55

    Good one, if even Uganda has to to back the freedom of expression in the West then something has to be more than rotten in the state of ….

    The internet is full of clips that cover the Twitter ban on the Donald, but why do most of them accept than any suppression should be the duty of Governments and not the whim of private companies?

    The argument should run ‘there should be no censorship of anyone unless violence’s involved in any form or shape’. As the great Spinoza had it ‘man can think what he likes and say what he thinks’, that’s it, simple and doable, but not in a society that pretends to worship freedom of speech but only the approved one, which is not doable because someone has to set the criteria for approval, and whoever that someone is cannot be unbiased because what someone sees as a good another one receives as evil, for such is the nature of the human condition, no?

  62. Baron 11.00am

    Conspiracy theory has now been overtaken by reality. Mr Orwell would be in lockdown like the rest of us, fined if he stuck his nose outdoors and probably, prematurely demised due to the overweening requirement to protect the NHS and the salaries of the public sector lackeys.
    For the goal of all governments, their holy grail, see the review of China’s current zero Covid restrictions in today’s Lockdown Sceptics newsletter.

  63. Noa @ January 13th, 2021 – 21:51

    Here’s another short clip by him, Noa, the same subject, the same verdict. The question that Baron keeps asking (and not just here) is simple: Why on earth do people continue to vote for politicians that pass laws allowing this to happen?

    That truly puzzles. Virtually everyone born in this country sans the progressive crew concentrated mostly on London must see what has been going on for decades, yet when it comes to the election day, most of them cast the vote for the candidates of the two parties that fall over themselves enacting laws that engender these fundamental changes in the society. Masochists, are they, the voting people?

  64. Baron – 11:48

    And there was me thinking that E. Croydon was baaad.

  65. Baron 11.48am
    “… Why on earth do people continue to vote for politicians that pass laws allowing this to happen?”

    Permit me, mi’lud, to answer your question with two questions.
    1. In the last UK General Election, if you wanted the next government to deliver Brexit, would you have voted Conservative, Labour, Other or NOTA?
    2. Assuming that there will be a future General Election, for whom if anyone, will you vote?

  66. Let’s build back better with a right Charlie eh?

  67. The answer to Q1 is a hit below the belt, Noa, unless one believes the Brexit we have had delivered is a genuine return of sovereignty.

    The Tories were a safer bet on a single issue, granted. If, however, we were to elect a bunch of MPs that truly reflected the views of the ‘healthy core of Britishness’ we would have a 24-carat Brexit plus a Government that cared about the country and not everyone else and itself.

    The Q2 is the killer one – nobody. Baron has wised up, is joining the 40% plus of those entitled to vote, who give it a pass, so will he, waste of time, the commodity he has little of.

    But here’s something completely different, enjoy, it’s Baron, not in person but metaphorically speaking:

  68. EC @ January 14th, 2021 – 13:58

    In this fast changing world of ours, EC, one’s hard put to decide what’s what.

    Only few weeks ago Navalny was dying having been attacked with the most lethal nerve agent known to man, on Sunday he’s on his way back to the country run by a man that wanted him killed not once, but three times. Hero of what?

  69. Baron 17.57

    It wasnt meant as a trick question Mi’lud. In the case of Brexit it was clearly a case of the Blond Beelzebub or nothing.
    Yours truly bit his tongue, there was no other candidate from any party approximating Noa’s political palette than Wallace, really a similar form of political pondlife to the BB that has in correspondence with the Ark master, has revealed himself to be a pinko liberal with domineering streaks of character.
    The next election, if there is one, may be different, if Farage’s Reform mob actually gets an acceptable manifesto together, even Fox, maybe. Other than that Baron I’m with you and will decline to vote.

  70. Well that didnt take long Baron. Simon Ellis’ video has gone already. Removed by the uploader it says. Mm. maybe. No pressure I suppose, from an moronic algorithm and its onanistic Californian webmiester…

  71. If you wondered where Alex Bellfield has gone the answer is that he’s banned by the same MAO CaLWeb… Andre Walker comments.

  72. Noa @ January 14th, 2021 – 19:10

    What’s the bet they are going to shut us down as well, Noa?

    It’s easy, each of us on his or her own is what they want, in the next phase, it will be a knock on the door in the wee hours of the morning, a couple of men in black Mackintoshes, the right hand in the pocket holding …(just in case)

    How did we get here? And where is Frank, when the country needs people like him?

  73. Noa – 19:04 & Baron – 17:54

    Holding our noses yet again in Dec 1019. There was hardly any difference between any of our local “conservatives” than, for example, than Corbynmistras Sue Hayperson, ‘Cat’ Smith, and the cerebrally challenged Lisa Numpty. 12 months on our new “Brexiteer” is almost universally reviled by “Workington Man” be they Labour or Tories’Conservatives.

    How many times over the years have we held our noses, conned ourselves, and voted “Conservative” because, “Hey they’ll come good eventuall.” We always knew that Boris was going to deliver BRINO, didn’t we? We should have all voted for Jezza and he would have delivered us Venezuela. That way the phoenix might have eventually risen from the ashes.
    Instead the 2019 pantomime season lasted 12 months. It was all misdirection.

  74. The present Government, if we may mockingly call the coterie of Mandarins and the politicians of both Left and Right, who are content to act as window dressing for their unwavering march towards supra-institutional totalitarianism, are entirely content to keep the licence fee, because the alternative would be to fund the BBC directly from the taxpayers’ currently depleted purse.
    At present it maintains the figleaf of appearing that the BBC’s content and message are independent and enables them to provide the illusion of a free and independent media.
    The BBC has throughout the current manufactured ‘Phony war’ flu crisis uncritically supported and indeed has actively promulgated the Government’s message of doom and dread.
    Its reward for its craven and disgusting behaviour, ultra vires to its Charter, is to be confirmed as the Ministry of Truth, both for the Blond Beelzebub, his future successors and the army of imps dependent on its radical cultural and societal reformation and re-education.
    Surprisingly there is hope. If the Government will not defund the BBC it is increasingly evident that the Public will. An increasingly vociferous and popular campaign of defunding is fathering momentum, as they move towards online information sources people are either cancelling or not renewing their licences.
    It is inevitable that market forces, Adam Smiths unseen hand of capitalism, will engender the very changes that the Booby of Downing Street eschews.

  75. Baron 22.40
    Why would they bother coming for us?
    It’s simpler to turn off the gas and electricity supplies and WiFi, replace petrol and diesel fuel and replace our fillet steaks with yummy, delicious kale!

  76. Noa – 19:10 et seq.

    The censorship is getting worse by the day.

    The Styx [hexenhammer666] and many others have already taken the precaution to also upload to platforms like Bitchute and Gab which have their own independent servers. Having said that the current monopolistic forces are scheming to get the IP addresses of those independent servers de-registered

    I find Alex Belfield a bit of pita at times, tbh, but he’s pithy, sarcastic and funny at other times. Not the sharpest tool in the box, but there is no way his show should be banned, though.

    Amongst his crimes against the dark forces are:
    [in no particular order]

    1. Saying that the King has go no clothes on.
    [ insisting that 2 + 2 = 4 ]

    2. Unrelenting, excoriating, and totally justifiable criticism of the BBC, the TV tax,
    and certain high profile Beeboids.

    3. Vocal support for Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Brexit

    4. Having the temerity to publish ONS stats and question government handling of
    the ‘flu d’etat.

    5. Being one of the great unwashed.

  77. EC 09.03
    We can only address the challenges that face us, learning our lessons from seeking to identify what caused them.

  78. EC 10.21
    Yes, ultimately it’s the lack of soap thats seen him condemned to the Tenth Circle.
    That and slagging off the Hewitt boy’s trollop.

  79. Baron, January 14th, 2021 – 23:33

    That was chilling!
    I’m certain that the heirs of Trofim will be showing that educational video to all schoolchildren… in order to encourage the others…

    File under: “pour encourager les autres” etc.

    The way it’s done:

  80. Baron, January 14th, 2021 – 17:57

    I afraid that know nothing about this “Navalny” chap or his health “problems.”
    Perhaps, because he’s seeking to replace the man in charge, he’s being put through some initiation test?

    What does the fugitive émigré, if still extant, have to say about him? on previous form, probably nothing worth reading.

    BTW. did you manage to make contact with Stephen Maybery?

  81. sorry about all the keyboard problems this morning,

    Oh Well… those were the days!

  82. We’ll soon be running a “YouTube Bad Boys of the Week” league here soon. Talk Radio is back, Gobster Belfield is supposed to return tonight, but Grumpy old Bugger Simon Webb says he is barred for a week for “hate speech”.
    The YT league will have more ins and outs, ups and downs than a Boris first date!
    Shall we CH Wallsters propose sponsoring it?

  83. EC @ January 15th, 2021 – 10:51

    On stephen m: yes and no, EC, he hasn’t;t responded to a Christmas card.

    On Navalny: For reasons that Baron cannot comprehend he wants to come back to Russia, not a smart move, when he was focusing on corruption he was not liked very much by anyone but the few Russian progressives (certainly not by the corrupt), but respected, it was the investigation into Medvedev’s charity business that led to the former PM dismissal, Navalny put it together, it was, however weird it may seem, a help to Putin, it was certainly a benefit to Russia.

    It was Navalny’s befriending the Bellingcat boys and the Western spooks that changed the perception of a vast majority of the Russians, in their eyes he became an enemy of Mother Russia, this the Russian unwashed cannot forgive (e.g. Gorby).

    Three Russian agencies are after him, they are squabbling now which one gets him first when he arrives tomorrow, it’s probably a chat with the probation services at best, prison if the prosecuting office lays its hands on him as the worst.

  84. Malfleur @ January 16th, 2021 – 00:44

    Good one, Malfleur, but what has happened to the guy that’s updating every few minutes. Was his name Simon Parks or similar? Is he still at it? When the we expect the bombshell to go off?

  85. EC @ January 16th, 2021 – 10:17

    That’s enjoyable but mild, EC, compared to some of Spike’s novels, they are probably on the ban list already, his treatment of minorities goes beyond the standards of today’s shameful.

  86. Noa @ January 15th, 2021 – 17:05

    Not enough time for Baron to argue in depth, Noa, but he reckons the tech geeks have reached the pinnacle of their power, not the other way round, the Deep State has used them to thrust the dagger, but that’s all they would be allowed to perform because they represent a danger to the other side, too, ergo they will brought to heel, you’ll see, the argument will run ‘you have no mandate of the people to decide who gets to speak and who has to be silenced’, they will be broken up or put firmly under the control of the legislators.

  87. Noa @ January 15th, 2021 – 10:10

    Just as it wasn’t possible to reform the communist nightmare of the East, Noa, it had to collapse, so it is with the BBC, reform of the monstrosity is not doable as it would require a full turnover of its top and middle ranking personnel. How likely is that?

  88. The hybrid Commons, remote voting and its cessation, Ministerial control of the agenda. Or how the Johnson Junta has used Wu-flu fear to sieze control of Parliament

  89. Monarchies. Six lessons for their survival. (If you think they should).

    A little old but there is some useful information on the Constitution Unit site.

  90. Biden has a job on his hands, one half of the Americans think the other half is the biggest threat to the American way of life:

  91. Baron 00.12
    And those Americans are right.

  92. It’s about time that the San Andreas Fault slipped again. With Silicon Valley, and half of California, disappearing into the Pacific – it just might help.

    Also the Jellystone Park caldera is overdue to blow its lid, but that would take out a large part of the northern USA – no nukes required.

  93. Few titbits gathered listening or watching stuff outside this country, no guarantee that any of it is genuine even though the people that expressed the opinions were introduced as political commentators such, also have huge followings (some of the stuff must be true though because it’s factual).

    Apparently, in spite of what N was claiming he was keen to stay in the West, but nobody was keen to accommodate him for fear he may join Western troublemakers, behave as the Pussy girls(?) did, would be difficult to contain, Russia didn’t;t want him either, but the Germans have had enough, decided to send him back, no press conference before departure, he wanted one, no kids to accompany him and his wife, he and she only were taken to the airport by the police, cleared the exit formalities also helped by the police.

    The Russians switched the airports, he didn’t arrive at Vnukovo where there was a waiting crowd, but not a massive one, apparently around 450 including journalists, a female singer (her flight also diverted) attracted a crowd by far bigger, but that isn’t that shocking, the young people are keener to worship their idols. The temperature in Moscow w as well below 20C, apparently the place last suffered from such low temperatures four years ago.

    The idea of the West is apparently to groom his wife to take over, she has a clean sheet, no criminal convictions, more to the point, she has been the one wearing trousers in the family, her biological father was a KGB general, it could be it runs in the genes (?).

    Listening to her she certainly has it, she could be more than a replacement for N who seems to look rather unwell. Unfortunately, Baron cannot post the short clip, it’s embedded (or whatever the jargon is). The clip was taken whilst N was waiting for the judge to start proceedings, it looks he doesn’t know he’s being filmed, his mouth is half open, his lower jaw sticks forward, he’s leaning forward, glassy eyes, the posture resembles that of a flying asleep monkey. This is not to degrade the man, or show disrespect, it’s actually as he looks.

    The rigmarole of it all from Tomsk, the breakdown on the plane, through Omsk then Berlin now to back to Moscow and a prison cell must have impacted his health, he was taking plenty of drugs in Germany (he was taking drugs before the alleged poisoning, more eon it later) these were taken away from him, the Russians aren’t saying what these drugs were.

    However much Baron disagrees with his new venture out of the comfort zone of investigating corruption, one cannot but pity the man, he’s being used, cannot help it, the reaction of the ordinary Russians is clear, virtually everyone wants him to be tried for treason, something Baron’s disagrees with (who gives a shite what Baron thinks though?).

    Not because it would engender another wave of sanctions and other stuff like that, that will come whatever the Russians do. It’s because what this could do to N himself, he was truly very good in investigating corruption, and it is corruption that needs rooting out in Russia. Stupid, deadly stupid of him to give it up, if he carried on, his reputation would have grown enabling him to enter politics later, he’s still young.

    There’s more but some of it cannot be put in print (it’s from more obscure blogs, and who knows who comes to our little chatroom).

  94. The one thing that Trump still could do that Biden can’t undo!

  95. Baron,

    “…and who knows who comes to our little chatroom”

    I’m sure it would make interesting reading but, even if he had time, I doubt whether Peter will ever publish that data or stats!

    After reading what you said about “N” what possible use could he be to “V” and the FSB? He’s a huge liability in terms of him contracting S.I.D.S. and thus causing them an even bigger headache. So why don’t the {{{Russians}}} follow the lead of the Meister Mensch, remove his passport and send him to the ends of the earth. i.e. to a nice pastoral life in New Zealand. Nobody ever comes back from there!

  96. Perhaps, Martin Luther King never had a dream,
    but he had seen a dream.
    This is a description of my theme;
    Tomorrow Biden’s speech will gather steam,
    which will destroy my Trumpian scheme,
    I have a dream.

  97. You have to allocate close to two hours of your life to watch it, it was released by the anti-corruption team in Moscow today, it features Navalny and the palace that N calls ‘the biggest steal in the history of Russia’. One may argue whether the complex belongs to Putin or not, it’s shrouded in mystery, at least in part, but the splendour of the palace would suggest it must be for someone who worships luxury.

    This is what N was good at, you must admit it’s put together professionally, it runs fast, makes convincing points, it’s superb. The silly guy should have stuck with making videos like this, coupling with the Western spooks will be his undoing, Baron reckons.

  98. Fergus Pickering @ January 19th, 2021 – 17:25


  99. EC @ January 19th, 2021 – 14:14

    Good idea, EC, to ship the guy out, but it may be Putin has other plans for him, like serving him morning coffee, sweeping the Autumn leaves, polishing the expensive fixtures …. in his retirement abode – see B @ 22:31.

  100. Charlie Ward – The James Delingpole Channel

  101. Malfleur @ January 20th, 2021 – 11:36

    You have to give up listening to fakes, Malfleur, who TF is this guy? Baron listened up to the point he says ‘ask God, ask Allah or ask your mother in law’ and that was all he could stomach.

    What happened to the one doing up-dates? Have you forgotten him already, or is he still updating?

    It’s figgwits like this chap that furnish the ammunition to those wanting to curb the freedom of the internet.

  102. Still on the Navalny’s charade:

    Could anyone enlighten Baron on one aspect of it? The Novichik was allegedly sprayed in N’s blue trunks, leaving aside how it was carried out and when, or why others handling the garment were not infected or at least tested for possible poisoning, why did the Novichok made Navalny deadly ill, but left his reproductive tools unhurt totally. Miracle or what? His balls made of steel?

  103. Baron – 12:21

    Teflon coated?

  104. Baron, January 19th, 2021 – 22:31

    Not so much a palace, the exterior looks more like a giant municipal public baths or one of the old GPO Telephone Exchanges on a larger scale. Oh, no you don’t think I’ve just blown my chances of an invite for a summer holiday do you?

    “Commenting on the investigation, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov called it a “badly broken record.” “We already explained many years ago that Putin doesn’t have any palaces,” he said.”

    Well that’s good enough for me! Dmitry is one super cool dude, as close to zero degrees Kelvin as a human can get! If “V” let him go for a paddle then the Black Sea would freeze over in summer! OK, Dmitry, please can I get the invite now…

    OTOH there’s that old quote from Otto von Bismarck to consider, “Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.”

    OTOH, such palaces are a security nightmare and liability. Can such a place be wholly a private residence? The Élysée Palace has 365 rooms. Do the Microns inhabit all of them? Mme Micron must have her work cut out just opening and closing the curtains morning and evening let alone having to knock up a “full English” for Emmanuel before he “heads off” to work, LOL.

  105. EC @ January 20th, 2021 – 13:28

    Made Baron chuckle for some while, EC, naughty boy you.

  106. EC @ January 20th, 2021 – 15:19

    Good points, EC, in fact excellent points, but notice that just as with Ukrainian Yanukovych it also start with a palace, one that Putin probably didn’t;t know he had.

    The video doesn’t matter, Navalny has released many videos (Baron may have mentioned one about a TV doctor with plenty of property in NY or New Jersey, Russia, somewhere else), all well researched and edited, other projects covered more sins of the Russian ruling class, it all did next to nothing to either Putin’s rating (still around two thirds) or Navalny’s (still in low signal figures).

    It needed perseverance, he should have kept on, Baron discovered him around 2014, gave him support even though the credit card company refused to transfer the money (US sanctions), but N changed, gradually but noticeably pinched results of other investigative reporters, didn’t acknowledge it, then became bitter, during the local elections came up with the idea ‘everyone but Putin’s candidates’, which filled the Moscow city Duma with communists and ‘liberals’ (but not his candidates), a total flop because it’s the Russian Right that has a chance to take over. The election was the last straw for Baron, he gave up on him, and as the recent events have proven righty so, he’s toast.

  107. A short summery of the 46th inauguration:

    One gaga talked, one Gaga sang, and 25,000 military servicemen in full armour stood watching (for any unwashed intruding).

  108. Andrew Lawrence – Biden the day after…

    Many a true word said in jest!

  109. Tucker: McConnell reportedly preventing potential Assange & Kiriakou pardon

    McConnell will double cross Trump in the Senate impeachment trial regardless of any tacit deal.

  110. Great Tucker speaking:

    He’s 100% right except he forgot to mention the for four years biden and his ilk have been doing everything dis-unite the great nation.

  111. It’s no longer the poisoning of Navalny, but his detention that exercises the EU Parliament. Hmmm

    Meduza is one of the opposition papers freely available in Russia, the paper doesn’t allow any response to what it prints.

    John Helmer continues to suggest Navalny will face more serious charges than the breaking of his conditions of his suspended sentence. The pro-Navalny supporters are preparing for a massive show of strength on Saturday January 23. They are lucky, the low temperatures have gone, the forecast is for 2-3degC.

  112. Biden has signed 10 executive orders today, it seems the Republic is beginning to be run as an autocracy, why on earth do they bother with the Senate and the House of Representatives?

    When signing the coronavirus order he remarked that more Americans died in the last year from c-19 than were killed in WW2. This isn’t strictly true, some 260,000 military and over 40,000 civilians were killed in WW2, which is roughly the number that died of covid in the last 12 months.

    How different would the message be if he said ‘each year, covid or no covid, some 2,8mn Americans die of various causes, the 400,000 deaths of c-19 may sound massive, but it’s just over 10% of the average annual deaths in our country, chin up, it won’t last, we’ll defeat the bug’.

  113. Each year about 30,000 of them die on the khazi.
    Ask Elvis!

  114. EC @ January 22nd, 2021 – 12:23

    Naughty, EC, but chuckle inducing.

  115. Trump gone…
    CNN & Amazon now against mail in votes?

    You’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

  116. EC @ January 23rd, 2021 – 10:16

    ‘You do as we tell you, we don’t have to’ is one of the leading postulates of the progressives, EC, and quite right, too, why should the unwashed have a say, they, the humble masses, tried to assert themselves in the last four years, that’s all what they are going to get, not any more, ever.

    Navalny’ millions are in the streets in 60 cities and towns of Russia today, widows and children and all, one would expect the storming of the Kremlin, a new leader, Navalny. installed before the day’s out. It cannot be anything else what with all civilised world backing the man equipped with Novichok infused reproductive tools.

  117. United Kingdom now a pitiful, helpless dwarf and with lockdown extended to July, or is it September?, a mutant strain of career politicians is spreading through the country devastating freedom, small businesses and civilised life. Time to get off your knees Englishmen or have you no more bottle along with your vanished pubs and restaurants – 10,000 saw I closed down at a glance? What a pathetic apology for your predecessors! What a fen of stagnant waters!

    What a fen of stagnant waters!

  118. Baron, January 23rd, 2021 – 10:40

    That was a gem! 🙂

    In addition to watching the video, I read some of the comments courtesy of Goolie Translate. ™. Not like Eddie Izzard to let a photo op’ go begging is it?

    When Commenter #2 “TAVR” wrote about “ripped asses” then I think “torn sphincters” may have been a better translation, no?

    Mind you, with that lot behind him, then “N” would be well advised to develop an enhanced musculature in that particular orifice. Failing the hours of rigorous training that might involve then “N” might consider and elastic rubberised prosthetic implant/replacement! Also with the addition of hair extensions, oestrogen therapy, an exclusive diet of soya products etc. then he would truly be the 38DD model for 21st century Red Army that is needed to defend the mother country…

  119. Malfleur @ January 24th, 2021 – 19:29

    Teachers or pupils, shouldn’t we be told, Malfleur? Btw, it’s virtual schooling now, did you know?

  120. EC @ January 24th, 2021 – 19:24

    Whoever came up with the idea to get the LGBT crew to back N must be mad, EC, in a poll some years ago, the Levada agency asked people what they disliked most on Putin, the answer was, if Baron remembers, he was too soft on the West, and he favoured the gay community as the two top or close to the top replies (sorry it’s the memory that fails Baron). The last thing Navalny needs is the spreading of the news that the gay community supports him, the ordinary Russians (even the younger ones) are not that keen on it, to put it mildly.

  121. Update on the US surge in the vaping illness:

  122. The MSM continue with their reporting of demonstrations in Russia, about 90 cities and towns saw on January 23 people marching, shouting, some indulging in violence, the police bashing them over the heads, and everyone, almost everyone sees that as the end of the Putin’s regime, or at least the beginning of it.


    Demonstrations are a part and parcel of a properly functioning society, provided people only demonstrate, avoid causing harm to others or property, allow those who have no desire to take part to go their own way one should welcome such spontaneous or organised releases of unhappiness cum anger with the ruling elite. One would hope that these manifestations of people’s feeling will have an effect on their voting when the next election comes. Because whatever the demonstrations may demonstrate, they should not be taken a substitute for elections. It’s only the nationwide count that matters, not the occasional outbursts of people’s anger.

  123. An intriguing take on the Putin’s hotel (now with almost 90mn views, it must be a record):

  124. Happy Australia Day, Clear Memories.

  125. Baron, January 26th, 2021 – 00:17

    Ah the follicly challenged Natan Rich, the China vlogger that takes alopecia and CCP sycophancy to new levels. 🙂

    Here’s an interesting perspective on him by “The Dude”. One of his rare posts in English in which he takes one of NR’s videos and gives it a right good Fisking. Enjoy!

  126. Baron, January 26th, 2021 – 00:29

    Another corker, Baron!
    At first I thought that the article was going to be about The Lubyanka Hilton.

    That stunning “Imagine” Tweet from the discredited old swamp creature was breathtaking. One for the scrapbook!

    A lively comments section. I still think that VP’s wisest move would be to cancel N’s passport and deport him.

  127. This makes the CCP’s bung to the Bidens look like small change!

    “China’s Most Corrupt Official Sentenced to Death | Lai Xiaomin and China Huarong”

    100 mistresses, imagine that. How much punishment should a guy be expected to take? I expect that the firing squad might be letting him off too lightly. Better that he is made to live with his 100 families and “mother in laws.”

  128. EC @ January 26th, 2021 – 12:37

    If the bribes reach the level of the guy with 100 houses, 100 mistresses and 100 whatever, EC, it’s only proper they hang the guilty, provide that guilty they are, the top guy could easily frame the ones that are a threat to him.

  129. EC @ January 26th, 2021 – 11:16

    You may well be right, EC, sending him to lecture the West about the evil Putin could be the best solution. It’s such a pity he gave up on the anticorruption drive, he was truly excellent, he even seduced Baron to send him a couple of shillings.

    After what he’s been up to in Germany, he’s finished, and also probably sick, he looked unwell in the polices station, glassy eyes, chin pushed forward, mouth half open, one could pity him. Sadly for him and his family he’s worth more to the West, is a greater threat for Putin not breathing. That may be the eventual outcome, he would be safer behind bars than out free.

    Here’s another take on Putin, the oligarchy and N. Helmer has a point except that it’s a autocratic oligarchy in Russia as opposed to the US where the top man is indeed just a loudspeaker for the corporate oligarchy, the reason being Putin does the have the free backing of the unwashed, it’s waning but still visible and relatively high, (whatever the MSM poodles say), the American puppet hasn’t, not even the Donald with his fortune commands the same free backing.

  130. Should the Feurein of Scotland be tried for sedition?
    Certainly. Would she be convicted, assuming the laws are even there to do so? Maybe….
    Are there better ways o preserving the Union than sending the Blond blitherer across the Wall to take the knee? Definitely! His very presence simply boosts the sense of triumphism in the Macnazi party.
    A pro Union campaign, conducted on the lines of the governments propagandist Wu flu campaign, would effectively destroy the SNP. What a shame the spineless tories cant and won’t defend the uk in the same way its enemies attack us and it.

  131. By the way does anyone really give a damn about this Navalny character?
    Does he really appear to be the new Karensky, or is he simply a chancer taking on impossible odds?I know the Brits have always admired the plucky amateur, but this chap seems more like a would-be Rakosi than an Imre Nagy to me.

  132. In the grand scheme of things “the daddy of ’em all” was Grigori Rasputin It was his persuasive tongue and the alarming potency of his other “reproductive tools” that got him killed.

    When whacking political opponents Novichok and Po210 lack the artistry and personal touch of traditional “Old Skool” methods. As you know it takes years of training to conduct, with some decorum, a well executed defenestration, or to know where to place, a concealed stiletto, with pinpoint precision, for instant effect.

  133. Comrade Merkel’s CDU party sponsored by Huawei (CCP), eh?

  134. Maybe the EU banned ‘poisonous’ haggis was the way to rid Greater Scotland of its Council leader, if so they may have to wait until next year…
    Still, laughter being the best medicine…there’s every chance for her to vanish under a gale of the stuff this year.

  135. My own WeeeeWeeeee machine is probably transmitting my own ramblings and thoughts directly to basement No 1 in the Heavenly City, where five and half million exit visas are currently being printed to allow CCP members to take over the UK Chinese restaurants, universities and remaining technology.

  136. Imagine if the Donald were to order the National Guard to police the Antifa rioting (say) in Portland Oregon, the man would get impeached for the third time.

    This is going to end badly for the Republic.

  137. Noa @ January 28th, 2021 – 13:22

    You reckon, Noa, that the CCP has already bought the rest of the country, the Chinese takeaways, universities and whatever are the afterthought? Possible.

  138. EC @ January 28th, 2021 – 11:03

    The Germans are the smarter tribe, EC, you go for the best to develop better.

    The Chinese were nowhere in the mobile comm business twenty years ago, today they are close to numero one, the’ve done so with our help. If we want to beat them we should do the same, get the 5G (that costs the Chinese more than a penny, both now and with everything it will need in the future to maintain the ranking), use it to develop 6G or 7G. That’s what the Germans plan to do.

    In the 60s, it was the glory time for IBM, no IT manager would have even considered any other supplier of the mainframe gear. To keep itself in front of the competition IBM kept investing billions in mainframes whilst Apple and few others, using mainframes, were busily designing one better, the PCs. That’s exactly how we should have done. The 5G network should have been a tool for the development of the next generation of comm gear.

  139. EC @ January 28th, 2021 – 10:59

    The N’s video is brilliantly sleek, well put together, but the story is not new at all, it has been in the MSM both here and in Russia for at least ten years. It was redusted and improved to promote N, it seems to have misfired just as did the number of people coming out in support of N. His major problem is he’s against Putin, but doesn’t;t have much of any idea what he would do except getting rid of the KGB Colonel.

    N is as much a threat as any Russian unwashed except the Right leaning bunch, it’s one of them who will get to reign when Putin goes, not perhaps immediately, Putin will try to install his own, but whoever that is won’t last, the siloviki are what it says on the tin ‘strong’ (siloviky derives from silk, power, strength …).

    Btw, did you know the origin of the verb ‘boycott’? Any suggestions?

    The fishmonger woman has taken to court, indirectly, one man Baron admires, Graig Murray. Not that the poorly edu Slav agrees with this Scot on many issues (as if that mattered), certainly not on independent Scotland, it’s the quality of the man that impresses.

  141. “Btw, did you know the origin of the verb ‘boycott’? Any suggestions?”

    The poisson-ous hag may be gone before long. There’s a court case next month in which the oily Salmond may do to a “John Morlar” on the SNP.
    i.e. “John Morlar: I will bring the whole edifice down on their unworthy head.”

    The outcome is a win-win really. If he fails then at least we might be treated to another Downfall mashup.

    NB. don’t miss the wonderful cartoon from Punch (05/02/1859) contained therein.

  144. You don’t have to listen to the 5-min clip, just move the cursor along, it’s the Putin’s Palace as it is today, the young man says, adding somewhere in the commentary he wasn’t told who owns it, and what it’s going to be when finished.

    In the postings one says that the N’s video was created artificially, nothing in it is true, it’s all virtual, and (you may have forgotten) resembles Yanukovych Palace in Ukraine allegedly with gold fittings and stuff. Could it be put together on a PC?

  145. EC @ January 29th, 2021 – 10:26

    But with mash potatoes, EC, sprinkled with chives, good malt and cool larger it’s heaven, for Baron anyway.

  146. EC @ January 29th, 2021 – 09:58

    It has never crossed Baron;s mind, EC, that it could be a family name, it should have, he’s mildly interested in cricket, and a famous Yorkshire player carries the name, as you well now. You can bet that on one of the visits to a country with many people but few surnames Baron will pay a visit to Burg St Peter.

  147. It’s posted because the guy asks a simple question to which one seldom if at all gets an answer, and even if someone furnishes an answer it’s never satisfactorily convincing: Why is diversity a societal strength rather than weakness.

    He could have also addressed another aspect, why is patriotism out of fashion, why one’s almost embarrassed to claim one’s patriotic? What has engendered the change, within scarcely three generations Britain morphed from a patriotic country into one where patriotism is a dirty word.

    What both the two tribes he quotes as an example have also in common is the desire to maintain their own distinctive way of life, they may import whatever they find usable from other cultures but modify adapt it to suit their way of doing things. The young are less inclined to conform to the traditional ways when young, but mostly join the crowd of the traditionalists as they mature, establish families, get jobs.

  148. Noa @ January 30th, 2021 – 08:54

    The owner should be congratulated, Noa, helped with money to keep the place free of the bug, he provides a service not to the old but the vulnerable nevertheless, those with mental health issues, a category of people that if anything is said o be growing the more the lockdown continues.

    One can also have sympathy with the police, they cannot ‘not enforce the law’ it’s their duty to do so. What it does to the future relation between the police and the public is another matter.

    Sad story that’s probably repeated across the country.

  149. The 2020 40% wealthier Club: It’s not just Bezos!

    Nigel Farage explains:

  150. EC @ January 30th, 2021 – 09:30

    Good story, EC, quite a cheer for the little man, the Congressional hearing will do FA to the big boys, they have the money, money talks, in the Republic it shouts, the little people could go climb a tree.

    What Baron didn’t;t know is that in the US one could do ‘naked short sells’, it’s illegal here, one has to borrow the stock, sell it, if one doesn’t have it one cannot sell it.

    If you think about it either side isn’t strictly kosher, the naked short sellers should be condemned, but if one were to sell borrowed stock it’s hard to see how that should be banned, in the stock market arena it’s a judgment of one against that of the other. The people that borrow the stock pay a fee to whoever the owner is, then it’s their judgment, if they are right they can indeed make a killing, if they wrong (and that happens in about half the cases, trust Baron, it’s something he knows little about) they lose and lose big also.

    What the little people did, however, was not unakin to the tulip mania, of course one cannot stop a million little people buying ten share each, nothing illegal there, but the rational underpinning for the buys is wrong, it’s to push the price up beyond what the earnings of the company would justify.

    The whole affair cheered one up, the c-19 hasn’t yet fully destroyed the people’s drive for enrichment fast, has it.

  151. Baron
    Like a war the history of Covid will be told in a hundred thousand small tales of tragedy and triumph, kindness and injustice. Great deeds and small.
    But the judgement of history will not be kind to the fear and cowardice that caused these wrongs.

  152. Russia is demonstrating again, not the whole country, not even a large chunk of it, even the N’s admirers are admitting the numbers are pitiful, in part because it’s cold, in part because in Russia like here they have a ban on public gatherings (because of covid), no MSM poodle will mention it though, and in part because not than many people of the largest Slavonic tribe admire N.

    Overall, the demonstrations are more because the earnings of the unwashed of Russia are being squeezed, not that different from what’s been going on in the West, hence the rioting here there elsewhere. If one adds the unhappiness with the lockdowns one can hardly blame the young of either the West or Russia to get boisterous, kick few copers.

    Here you can watch the demonstrations in Russia on the N’s channel, Baron spent some half an hour switching between the ‘Direct One’ that’s the pro-Kremlin channel of Solovyev and the Navalny’s TV channel, the pictures were almost identical the commentary polar different, the former saying ‘where are the masses, it’s all over’, the latter pinpointing the police atrocities, one policeman (out of three) that got surrounded by some vicious youngsters pulled a gun out, didn’t use it, the rest was just scuffles between individuals.

    The Navalny’s lot missed the possibility to have also a commentary in English, it’s all in Russian only on all the channels that broadcast the demonstrations live (there are others also broadcasting the demos).

  153. At least “Novichuk” Navalny seems to be able to get a mob out on the streets in the middle of winter to throw snowballs at the police.

  154. A very gentle, almost gentlemanly message but very persuasive even though many of us have been persuaded months ago:

  155. Noa @ January 31st, 2021 – 20:29

    The more one watches the guy the more one likes him, Noa, it’s not what he says, that’s common sense all right, t’s the way he says it, not a smidgeon of a complaint, simply a comparison with the times past. He also times his critiques of the new well, four five or minutes slots are infinitely better than ten or half an hour ones.

    It’s people like him we should honour, not gender lobbyists.

  156. The small guys versus the hedge big boys battle continues, here’s Tucker Carlson getting hot under the collar, one of his guests talking about imprisonment, arghhh.

    The hedgers cannot lose, most of the political hierarchy of either colour has a stake in them, that’s how they make the real money, their salaries aren’t fat enough to allow them to amass the fortunes they eventually possess when they retire, join the corporates as non-execs.

  157. Hours of watching Russian sources of information tell Baron that in the next election for the Duma coming in September Putin’s United Russia will find it hard to combat the two biggest oppositional parties that nobody in the Western MSM talks about, but which look to get the majority of the votes – the communists and the Zhirinovsky lot.

    The former did look into the Putin’s hotel business, furnished documentary evidence that shows the Russian Government put into the property half a billion (?) roubles (both when Putin and Medvedev were PMs), but the real estate got transferred miraculously into private hands in 2016. This will register with the voters, it does prove a massive fraud that will be difficult to explain.

    It is a big pity Baron cannot provide links of some of the debates, discussions and outpouring of feelings, many are by far more open than what we get on the major TV networks, or even in the MSM here. One such forums was debating the possibility of Navalny being a stooge of the Kremlin, fascinating stuff anchored in unquestionable evidence – Navalny getting a preferential treatment from the courts, he never lands behind bars whatever the charges against him, always a suspended sentence, others that commit similar or even identical offences do, including his brother.

  158. Whoever guides or instructs the troublemakers in Russia should be sacked, what a stupid thing to do, on his own with a stick that looks as if it couldn’t hurt a fly. Those opposing Putin should come to the West learn how to organise and only then face up to the heavily armed Putin’s police robots:

  159. Baron, January 31st, 2021 – 21:33

    Whoa there. Reporting actual facts. I’m surprised that guy has not been arrested.

    Try not to look, Katie Hopkins is asking for some info at 45 seconds in.

  160. Noa, January 31st, 2021 – 20:29

    I saw that yesterday. Can’t remember much of it but a couple of years ago when Jordan Peterson questioned whether women should be allowed to be provocatively dressed or wear Glamourflage at work then all hell broke out amongst the usual Twitter/wankerati.

    imo it should be banned in the workplace (*) particularly in the armed forces.
    * strippers excepted 🙂

  161. Baron, February 1st, 2021 – 08:56. et seq.


    Last night, I was having the usual one sided conversation with an elderly relative – difficult to get a word in edgeways. She said that she had been watching “everybody” in Russia on the BBC rioting about Putin being a terrible man and having having a palace with gold toilet – people waving toilet brushes! LOL. Some Beeboid called Rosenburg, who she said loves Russia so much he actually lives there, LOL, interviewed a REAL Russian person on the street who said it was all true… so it must be. WELL, whodathunkit! 🙂

    Sometimes these conversations are like being in an episode of Last Of The Summer Wine.

  162. George Galloway – now inadvertently acting as a recruiting sergeant for Navalny?


  163. Beat that:


    You can google for it under the heading, Baron’s still chuckling, it’s getting better and better.

  164. Time to sack MI5 and MI6 and MI7 … hire this bored guy, it would be cheaper, but more effective:

  165. EC @ February 1st, 2021 – 11:02

    It’s in Russian, EC, hence Baron cannot post it, but the Russians have reprinted a story published in German magazine, the Putin Palace video was allegedly made in Germany on the order of the Americans, you can read it here if you speak German:

  166. Baron, February 1st, 2021 – 22:15

    I’ve been concerned about Andrew Neil’s organ for a number of years now. (and I’m not talking about Pamela Bordes). I do hope that we can expect better from GB News!

    All I can say, after reading that shallow puff piece for Bellingcrap, is that I’m glad I’m glad that I’m not funding that rubbish by way of a subscription

    Elwes got one thing right though. “The distinction between the truth and the lie is often muddled, sometimes purposefully.”

    Yup! That’s the whole purpose of CIA deep fake misinformation Ops!

  167. Baron, February 1st, 2021 – 22:22

    Re: Black Forest Messenger

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised…

  168. The member of the ‘healthy core of Britishness’ Captain Sir Tom Moore has died, a great man, one doesn’t find may like him today, it was pleasing to see Her Majesty the Queen to send condolences to the family, both are of the same stock that, one hopes, will survive to turn the country right eventually.

    RIP Tom.

  169. Close to two hours Baron spent watching a live broadcast of the N’s court hearing from Moscow this afternoon, the Navalny TV channel didn’t have it on, it had to be the competition, quite enjoyable, not much new to learn except probably the shortest interview with an older woman, dressed quite well, but one of those that under the Red Menace would have swept the streets and stuff, she was walking home carrying two full shopping bags when the young journalist asked what she thought of it all.

    ‘They earn money or get it easily’, she said, ‘have no real work, if they had to work hard to get money as we had to under the communists they wouldn’t be shouting and breaking things’. And that was it.

  170. EC @ February 2nd, 2021 – 10:02

    GB News is news to Baron, EC, is it already on?

  171. The cleansing has begun, but not the one the Donald wanted, just the opposite, if only the Donald began in this manner when he took office:

  172. Does anyone have any opinion on the surging number of deaths again in care homes? The old above 80 are supposed to have been vaccinated, that should have helped, the shots should have kept the number low if not decreasing, no?

    One of Barons neighbours has succumbed, she was in a care home, no c-19 though, death from natural causes.

  173. And a puzzle for you:

    A family of two, he just over 50, she close to 50, he contracts c-19, isolates, tests positive 3 times, she lives with him, share bed with him, cares for him, tested negative three times. It takes 18 days for him to recover, go back to work where he contracted covid in the first place.

    Can anyone offer an explanation, it’s a true case, you have to trust Baron.

  174. Again mistakes, baron’s he types fast, makes hem.

  175. FFS, makes ‘THEM’.
