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


The Coffee House Wall – June 2022

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. It’s a sign! A sign that Peter Farrington is still out there.
    Thank you Peter.

  2. Hi Peter, you are OK which is good news, the nasty pathogen has given you a miss, well done.

    if you look in again could you tell us whether anyone apart from EC and Baron ever visits this blog, please.

    “So; what advice to a man considering return to his homeland later this year after many decades abroad?”

    For whatever reason I hope that your desire to return isn’t prompted by ill health and an imminent need to claim 275 cubic feet of English soil. Other than that, then quite why you would want to return to this lunatic asylum beats me.

    To respond to your request:

    1. Don’t. (best advice)
    2. There are still a few oases of old England as you might remember it, but they are very, very expensive.
    3. After decades of being comfortably warm can you afford the UK’s heating bills?
    4. Since you are accustomed to living in places far flung, then Tower Hamlets might not be too much of a culture shock, and it’s relatively cheap.
    5. See #1

    I’ve noticed that, over the last year or so, your “Big Bad Flower” avatar seems to come and go. Did you write or own that computer game, btw? I never did get to ask Noa about his brief excursion into avatars, which did cause some private amusement at the time.

  4. Good one, the clip, in about sixteen minutes the girl makes an unarguable case for the cause of what we are witnessing now in Ukraine, Baron’s quibble remains what it was when the invasion began, Putin left it too late, he should have figured what the governing elite of the country of the exceptional people is up to years ago before only Ukraine was left to join NATO.

    If he were as smart as some believe he is, he should have acted after the Yushenko’s presidency (2005-2010) when the Ukrainian unwashed rejected the glaringly pro-American stance, elected Yanukovych, convinced the new man to turn Ukraine neutral, imbed the new status in the constitution, negotiate both with the Americans and Russia a treaty acknowledging the country’s neutrality.

  5. EC @ May 31st, 2022 – 08:03

    Not only Baron, EC, nobody could have said it better, seconded many times and more.

  6. Malfleur, May 29th, 2022 – 21:46

    What possessed you to return now, Malfleur? Could a visit to a psychiatrist help? Is life wherever you may be that punishing?

    The only reason, rational reason for you to return would be to set up a new political outfit, convince the unwashed of Britain they should wake up, vote for you, then you put and end to the asylum, heh, heh …

  7. Baron – 08:10

    An excellent clip. A testament to what some CHWallsters have been witnessing and commenting on since Gordon Brown’s unqualified chum Baroness (my arse!) Ashton was High Priestess of EU Foreign Affairs, un-ably assisted by equally deluded idiot, Daniel Krapski.

    The woman commentator was streets ahead of either of the two male panelists, the one in the flowery shirt being a complete waste of space.

  8. Malfleur, May 29th, 2022 – 21:46

    In my opinion, one of the nicest areas of England in which to reside is West Sussex. Somewhere either in or close to the South Downs National Park. There are plenty of villages and small towns from which to choose. There are large hospital facilities in Worthing and Eastbourne should you ever require them.

    Also, this area of the country gets to most sunshine hours per year, which always helps.

  9. Tony Blair is reportedly considering staging a comeback.

    GB News’ Colin Brazier gives a nice 4 minute summation of what he did last time…

    Blair’s toxic legacy:

  10. There was a news clip last night of the unimpressive snd unelected Ursula Vonda Lying claiming that her EU sanctions were “really hurting” Vlad and that by the end of 2022 only 10% of the “EU’s” Oil imports would come from Russia. The credulous sycophants assembled lapped it up. What a joke. She made no mention of GAS, which if Vlad turned off the taps tomorrow then not only would German industry immediately grind to a halt but the Volksgenossen would freeze next winter.

  11. have a laugh or at least a chuckle:

  12. EC @ June 1st, 2022 – 07:19

    The man needs to be retired forever, EC, he’s done enough damage, the tap on immigration he opened up is now pouring a million of new ones per yer. Soon, we will not all be gay as Mahler thinks, we will all be strangers in a foreign country.

  13. EC @ June 1st, 2022 – 07:33

    As you well know, EC, there was no reaction, no sanctions, no nothing when in the ME the Americans invaded one country after another, but hey, these are the Americans they run the world.

    There should’ve been a reaction after the invasion of Ukraine, it’s was a tragic move too late, it revealed Putin wasn’t;t the smartest thinker in the world, he may have been warning the West not to move east with its NATO vehicle, but he left it too late to place the red line at Ukraine, he should have acted before when Yanukovych was President.

    Still, one can hardly turn the clock back, but what one can do is ponder whether the reaction of the West to the invasion is even more tragic that the invasion itself, in Baron’s view, it is, it only boosts the Far East chances to replace the West as the leading region this century.

    It will take time for things to settle, new structures put into operation, new deals to sign, but in the end more than the two thirds of the world population living in the broader East (China and India account for roughly half of the world population), by far hungrier that those in the West, cannot but engage in a magnitude of wealth creation the West cannot even dream of aided by the cheap Russian fossil fuels and other natural resources whilst the West, deprived of them, will have to utilise more expensive energy alternatives including solar and wind, the intermittency character of both making it even more expensive as massive back-ups must be available in case the sun refuses to shine or the wind to blow.

    It won’t be as the pouting Ursula whatever thinks ‘hurting’ Russia, it will be hurting the set-up she’s presiding over, not that any of the countries or the whole bunch of them will collapse, they will not, but they will trod along as the former Bolshevik East did before the creed collapsed, it won’t be life for the plebeians but a mere existence, and rather painful for many, what that can do for social cohesion? Such conditions could even lead to a confrontation between the unwashed of the Old Continent and those that control them, the EU disappearing into the hole of has-beens.

    It won’t be that different for the Anglo-Saxon world either, it shares the insanity with the Continental Europe, if anything we are even more eager to hurt Russia only to find we are paining more than the intended target, the first signs are already here, more is to come.

    It truly amazes how a policy ostensibly designed to contain and ultimately break up Russia will unquestionably inflict more damage on the policy creators, those in power should have learnt that sanctions do not yield the intended results even when applied to small countries, see North Korea, the most sanctioned country in the world happily perfecting its long range rocketry and nuclear capability. Why should the sanctions work on Russia a country endowed with massive natural resources helped by a neighbour that’s emerging as the most serious challenger to the hegemony of the American Republic?

    Madness, unbelievable madness.

  14. Hard to say whether he’s been forced, or is genuine in what he’s saying:

  15. His prattling may seem to be pointless, but if you stick with him he makes sense, at around the 6th minutes he says ‘the elites aren’t evil, they are stupid’, which could indeed be the case as he explains:

  16. Baron – 23:50

    He is right. However, if the likely outcome is the same then it doesn’t matter if “the elites” that hold sway over governments are mad, bad or just plain stooopid.

  17. This is good, it lasts 45 minutes, but you can miss the introduction, start watching around the 8th min when the author begins:

  18. Here’s the result of a poll amongst Ukrainians living west of Kiev published today i staunchly anti-Russian media called the Maidan Press:

    The Democratic Initiatives Foundation’s opinion poll shows that Ukrainians living in Ukraine’s central and Western regions:

    -believe that Ukraine would defeat Russia (94%);
    -put blame for the war on Russia’s leadership (94%) and the Russian nationals (54%);
    -don’t support any concessions to Russia (78%);
    -strongly support Ukraine’s accession to the EU (89%);
    -favor the country’s NATO membership (74%);
    -see the UK (66%), US (65%), Poland (63%) as Ukraine’s biggest allies.

  19. Here’s the latest on how well the Western sanctions on Russian shipments of oil are working:

    “Overall, Russian oil exports rebounded in April, after dropping in March as the first Western sanctions took effect, the International Energy Agency said. Russia’s oil exports rose by 620,000 barrels to 8.1 million barrels a day, close to its prewar levels, with the biggest increase going to India”.

  20. Where does he get the information from? This is the first time Baron came across the guy, he seems confident, attracts a reasonable number of postings, but is the stuff believable?

  21. Baron – 00:15

    There are ordinary guys on both sides caught up in this futile conflict that won’t solve anything. I doubt whether many of them, if any, want to be sacrificial pawns in the game of chess being played out between Vlad and Z’s puppet master.

    Mr. Johnson’s bio reads like that of a bit of a blinkered knobhead, imo.

  22. Baron, June 3rd, 2022 – 14:18

    Sanctions have never worked, anywhere at any time.
    Sieges are another matter.

  23. For those who have expressed a desire to return to dear old “Blighty”

    A few thoughts from Neil Oliver.

    Rwanda might be the better option.
    No heating bills and cheaper cost of living.


    “During World War I Major Errol Phipps is determined to escape from Stalag Luft 112B but his attempts all fail. However all the other prisoners and the guards succeed, leaving him alone in the camp to make elaborate plans – including a tunnel system so extensive it becomes the Munich Underground. He is so obsessed with his escape plans he fails to realise that the war has ended and dies a disappointed man. He does however manage to escape from his grave after he has been buried.”

  25. EC @ June 5th, 2022 – 10:32

    Take great care, my blogging friend, au revoir.

  26. Prince William on the environment.
    As daft as his father.

  27. John birch. @ June 8th, 2022 – 18:52

    With great regret, John, EC and Baron have decided to pack it in, no more postings, nobody visits the blog, it’s close to pointless, you are of course free to visit and post as much as you like, Baron will occasionally look in as well, Noa said the same.

  28. What a shame, I always enjoyed reading your posts , knowledgeable and insightful.
    Where are you going.

  29. If you were to visit more often, John, Baron may reconsider, he finds it hard not to have an outlet, like you he’s on CW and on the Spectator, but it’s not the same, one has to comment on what the two publications put up, this limits what one would like to comment on, for inst. in Russia today it’s said Putin’s preparing a major address for the Russian unwashed, could it be he’s to resign? Probably not, but one cannot really debate it because not one of the MSM mentions it.

    There are other issues, again impossible to mull over anywhere but here, the problem is nobody visits. Baron will get in touch with EC, find out what he thinks.

  30. I may not have always commented but I regularly came to read the comments by the main contributors, always worth reading.

  31. John birch. @ June 14th, 2022 – 08:0

    OK, John, Baron will carry on, he has checked with EC, he is OK with it, he was, after Frank, the most senior, also the one mostly read, Noa may look in also, Malfleur hasn’t;t said anything yet, he may be moving to the UK anyway.

    It may be just a single trooper, but he doesn’t look like someone training the Ukrainian military, he’s fully equipped for action, it confirms what the Russians have been saying, that there are some combat troops from NATO countries, also that some of the drones are run by NATO operatives. This can only prolong the conflict, unlikely to help the Ukrainian party to win it:

  32. Dr Faucci tests positive for covid.

    Who says He doesn’t exist.

  33. For the avoidance of doubt it is Peter that has 100% proprietorial interest in this incarnation of the CHW.

    It was a pity that Peter didn’t have the time to develop it into something along the lines of American Digest. In the early days Frank did his best to create content by contributing some excellent articles.

  34. “If I want an opinion from someone who chases a ball, I’ll ask my dog.”
    Altogether now, to the chant of “You’ve all gone White over there.”
    With much waggling of fingers.

  35. Re Baron

    “…There are other issues, again impossible to mull over anywhere but here, the problem is nobody visits…”

    Precisely, other than Baron, EC and an occasional visitor one is commenting into a vacuum of silence

  36. EC & Noa

    What if Baron were to convince someone of fame (say) Liddle, to do an occasional posting here? Not that Baron could, but he can try, one never knows, weirder things have happened, it may be a platform for him, the name’s close to what the Spectator runs, the terms of reference are better than anywhere else (they may change because who knows who may start posting if someone like Liddle were to host this blog).

    Btw, is it possible to contact Peter? He seems rather blaze about it all, it must cost him money, no?

  37. The guy Nattrass that penned the footballing piece is an ass, Noa, it’s not just taking the knee that irks, it’s the whole wokenism including the standing ovations in the Commons for the Ukrainian drug addict.

    Zelensky spoke to the Czech Parliament few days ago, they dutifully applauded standing up, but not all, twenty members of the Okamura opposition party sat, no applauding, another MP abstained, the reaction of the public backed them, that’s democracy for you.

    In Russia many public figures are objecting to the invasion, nobody has touched them, here it’s all as it used to be under the Bolsheviks, the contemporary West has morphed into the past East, arghhhh

  38. EC @ June 16th, 2022 – 11:26

    Agreed, EC, Peter has been neglecting this blog from the world go, why on earth did he take over it when the Spectator dropped it?

    Frank is missed, very much so, he would bashing all and sundry if he were alive, sad, very sad he’s no longer with us.

  39. As usual, all interesting reading.

  40. And not will Europe have the highest energy cost worldwide, it’s till now the engine and the funding source of the EU Germany will also lose its independence, it will be the Americans that will control her energy policy, it may not have yet dawned on the Germans that whoever controls the energy input of a society controls the society:

    (please change COMMA for .)


  41. Soory about the start of the posting, it should read ‘and not only will… You may directly go to ‘unz review’, the piece is there.

    Also, Baron couldn’t;t post the link, the system wouldn’t have it. Strange that.

  42. The best thing about taking the knee was watching the British police loose all the dignity they were just about hanging on to in a single moment

  43. The best thing about taking the knee was watching the British police loose all the dignity they were just about hanging on to in a single moment .
    Absolutely pathetic.

  44. The madness of the West is destroying it faster than expected. Ukraine is simoly a sideshow, a distraction in comparison.
    First the future king (Jesus!) came for the belching and farting cows and sheep then they came for everyone else.

  45. Is Murray right? Will we win the kultur War?
    Given that we’ve just witnessed the Boris plan being thrown off the flight by the EU I can’t agree.
    We’re doomed, doomed! I say.
    No-one cares best we just pay the Traitor Class their salaries and let them get on with it.

  46. Baron 15.57
    Yes the writer, like most of the erstwhile “journalists” who write for Unherd is a foredeck tugging lefty, whose only excuse is that he possibly has a ‘partner’ and child to keep. Too much conservatism and the editor will simply not use his copy.
    The letters are more interesting than the semi woke thought piece that provoked it.

  47. As the world bifurcates into the US and its UK and EU satrapy and the Sino-Russian alliance together with their related Indian, middle Eastern and other satrapies satrapies, a future ground for potential conflict is developing in the Artic.
    I don’t believe that we should worry. Once the testosterone driven Ben Wallace deploys a few electric tanks and drones that should sort out who owns the ehorrible nasty oil and such up there.

  48. If you want to escape the transatlantic Oirish snarling lectoors of Orla ‘gimme a fecking war now’ Guerlin and a standard beeb toady boys its good to know that one sane place in the world now offers Sanctimony sanctuary.

  49. What a pleasant surprise, Baron will check all recommendations later, too bloody busy, he wonders how he managed when he also had a daily job.

    For the time being only this:

    Yesterday he dispatched to Farage’s GB News hour (mostly about immigrants) his rant about immigration equals colonisation, shortened of course … no luck, those doing the filtering decided against it, will try again one day.

    “The flow will never stop when the country’s governed by the middle class, immigration equals colonisation only with reversed travelling arrangements for the two social classes of people that benefit from it – the British middle class and the foreign plebeians.

    Instead of the sons of the middle class parents boarding the boats, settling in foreign lands where the local unwashed do what they are asked to do, it’s the unwashed from the foreign lands that arrive here, doing what the middle class wants them to do”. Baron

    Also this, Baron couldn’t;t resist even when he may be latee:

    If you’re looking for a well paid job, here’s your chance:

  51. Noa, June 16th, 2022 – 17:11

    “We’re doomed, doomed! I say.”

    Well, Julian Assange is definitely doomed as, reportedly, Priti Patel has just signed his death warrant. What with staff shortages, flight cancellations, transport strikes she’ll be lucky to get him on a commercial flight. No doubt the CIA will step up and offer to put him on one of their extraordinary flights out of Farnborough.

    Will the “Stop The Plane” mob, lefty lawyers, and ECJ Judges be out in force to save Assange? No, thought not.

    Will there be yet another determined case of suicide in the US prison system to spare the blushes of some high profile Septics? Probably.

    R.I.P John McAffee and others.

  52. EC
    It’s 239 years since the treasonous revolutionaries in the American colonies refused to accept our white convicts, though Assange hasn’t actually been convicted of any crime here. If they’re now happy to accept more we can supply them with virtually unlimited quantities whose diversity is guaranteed.
    The ideal solution for the Patel woman would be to make the Rwanda route a success by shipping him there and the boat invaders to the States, which is where most of them want to go anyway.

  53. Doomed?

    It took Herr Schicklgruber only 13 years to reduce his country to rubble.

    The Romans took longer but they had orgies, wine, cheese and other entertainments to distract them.

    Westminster today…

    … it’s getting there.

    File under: panem et circenses, Fitba, Corrie, Love Island… etcetera.

  54. EC @ June 17th, 2022 – 15:32

    Powerful stuff, EC, who is to be the one repeating it though?

  55. Noa @ June 16th, 2022 – 17:55

    What you may have missed, Noa, that we have a 12-page strategy for the Artic, that’s a sure winner.

  56. Noa @ June 16th, 2022 – 17:11

    Murray cannot be right, Noa, he’s bleating about Western war on the West, forgetting the orthodox view is it’s the Russian war on the culture of the West, the heredity guilt, the denial that diversity is a strength, that equality rules and stuff are all originating in the Kremlin and streaming to the West from the evil Russia, it’s Russia that funds the culture war on the West, controls it, determines which way it should go next … That’s what one’s told when the crunch arrives.

    The guy won’t get far with his take on the culture war the West’s fighting and losing unless he recognises the ‘significance’ of Russia in the onslaught on the old cultural values of the West, only when he does so, will he be taken seriously by the ruling class. This may seem to you rather silly, but you look at any wart and boil we suffer from it’s never far from the officialdom blaming Russia for it. He has to join the bandwagon or he will be ignored.

    Also, the one female holding a placard saying ‘British history matters’ even if repeated thousand times is not going to win the culture war, one needs more than placards with the right slogans.

  57. Not sufficiently pessimistic, the good professor could have suggested a longer lasting turmoil not because of the realignment of trading routes and stuff linked to the Ukrainian fighting, but to forces that have been breeding exclusively in the West before the invasion began, namely the size of the QE in all major Western countries, the insanity of the zero net carbon, and the influx of immigrants both into Europe, the UK and the US, all that combined may lead to a social convulsion that those in power won’t be able to explain by Putin’s excursion into Ukraine, they will try, but the plebeians are unlikely to buy it. As EC pointed out dark times are truly ahead, one would do well to stock up on the essentials.

  58. Our leader on a visit to our new special friends today, rather disorganised show having about of everything including the destroyed Russian tanks, but then he and the crew around him must have been anxious the Russians won’t do anything naughty to spoil the theatre.

    Will that help him in the two coming by-elections? Hmmm

  59. It lasts for around an hour, but it should be a must watching it even if the professor reckons nukes will come into play, frightening that.

  60. Further to the 23:22 posting:

    If you are pushed on time, put the cursor to 54min and watch to the end which is only some 9 minutes duration, the stuff before is essentially a repeat of what we’ve been saying ourselves, or the professor said in other presentation but here in this lecture it’s in greater detail.

    It’s hard to argue with his logic about the high likelihood of an escalation he talks about but for one point, the Americans are used to losing, if one looks at their involvement from Vietnam forward it’s mostly losses, the last big one in Afghanistan, with Russia it’s somewhat different but one has to consider that the Americans may open another zone of conflict probably in Syria to stretch Russia’s resources further, what then? Will Russia resort to nukes? Will China step in?

    Truly frightening if one inputs into this nightmarish military scenario the looming economic disaster with high inflation, close to unaffordable energy prices for many and the food shortages.

  61. The last and hopefully this time the correct timing from which anyone that hasn’t;t got the time to watch the presentation fully should put the cursor on, it’s from the 51st minute, apologies.

  62. Baron 23.08,
    Perhaps some Russian drone operator was waiting for clearance from the Kremlin before launching an air to ground missile at Bunter.
    Perhaps it never came, ,because Vladimir shares the view of the Iron Duke that:
    “It is not the business of generals to shoot one another.”

  63. Ben Wallace has promised to train ‘thousands” of Ukrainian troops to defend their homeland.
    Given the British Army’s outstanding success in defending its homeland from more invaders than the Whermacht deployed in 1940 we anticipate that the boys from Kiev will endure the similar rigorous training our own lads endure.

    “Minsk, I said you ‘orrible lot, not mince!”

  64. Nothing much to report, more sites have been shut down, pity that, one can still listen to the Navalny’s web broadcasts, millions do, Putin hasn’t blocked it, yet anyway, why do we prevent the other party to the war to say what they make of it?

  65. Noa @ June 18th, 2022 – 11:23

    You may not have listen to the full video of the good professor, but one bit of information he furnishes is that starting from 2014 (the year of the coup) each year NATO trained 10,000 Ukrainian troops, that’s a lot, it must have involved our military taking part, you may recall that there was a denial of a video posted by the Azov Brigade showing our officers in conference with the Azov top leadership. The Ukrainian troops must have well prepared when the Russians invaded.

    The one source that hasn’t been blocked yet (Baron won’t tell you the name of the site) is saying that earlier today a large number of Aidar Battalion fighters at the town of SeveroDonetsk including the commanders have voluntarily surrendered, during questioning one of them said they had been trained by the Lithuanian officers how to attack one-two-three storeys buildings, they were told it would be needed when they attack Donbas.

  66. Noa @ June 18th, 2022 – 09:57

    Like the moniker, Noa.

  67. For eleven gallons some £44 that’s not that cheap in Russia, it’s only less than a half of our price, but considering the Russians are earning less, it’s about in par with us.

  68. Baron – 00:14

    His memory lives on, M’lud, if only as a branch of ‘spoons in Somerset.

  69. First, apologies for the errors, Alzheimer perhaps or a lack of education?

    Plenty of blocked sites, pity that, one’s left with nothing because to believe the agitprop is almost impossible.


    Beats Baron, EC, it must be the Alzheimer, but Noa’s supplied quote is good, quite usable.

  70. German Foreign Policy reports NATO expansion in Europe, together with expanded weapons supply and the development of interoperability with Ukrainian forces.
    In addition it us extending its remit to cover opposition to PRC expansion in the Far East. Compare that with Robert Frosts Civitas proposal which I previously mentioned to form a new anti Russia PRC alliance to combat Artic material and supply route control.
    Does anyone else consider there is an increasing and inevitable drift to world wide war, both in Europe and the Far East?

  71. In the event of sturgeon achieving the SNP target of Scotzit is one of the likely consequences to be civil war, as the Highlands and Islands split from Edinburgh dictatorship and the Northern borderlands with England become the subject of Donbass-like separation, reclamation and fighting?
    Will England’s traditional enemies, France and latterly Germany, support Edinburgh with troops and materia,possibily under a NATO umbrella? Will Russia and PRC supply support? If so, to whom?
    We will watch with interest as Bunter presides,successive ly, over the creation of a new coterie of British dictatorships, bankruptcy, wholesale population replacement, a bloody breakup of the Union and in an attempt to stop it all, leads us into a major war.

  72. Still on the Scottish theme:

    Leslie Sinclair, a proud Scottish male and a committed donor came to give blood but was turned down because he refused to answer a question whether he was pregnant.

    Silly of him, he should have said to the young nurse ‘not yet but if you take your knickers off, you could be’.

  73. Noa @ June 19th, 2022 – 10:15

    Those running the show for the West, Noa, believe Russia will never resort to deploying nukes, this is a grave error, we will all suffer because of ti.

    Since Baron arrival in the UK he has been consistent in saying the Bolsheviks would have never ever deployed nuclear weaponry because they knew that doing so would have invited a swift retaliation and hence an imminent collapse of the regime.

    It’s impossible to test it now, it has always been impossible to test it, but an indirect evidence that Baron may be right was furnished by the collapse of the Red Menace in 1990, it vanished within hours, except for a few at the very top there was not one single state institution (and that included the KGB), a social institution, or an individual that stood up in support of it, almost 99.999% of Russia and even a higher percentage of the satellite vassals welcomed the the implosion, many aided it happily.

    With today’s Russia, things are totally different, whatever the warts and boils of Putin may be, he has the backing of the majority, a true backing, the Russians are as well informed about the world at large if not better than the plebeians of the West, they know Putin’s faults, many don’t like them, but all in all his faults are of little consequence for them considering what he’s done for Russia. The unwashed of this largest Slavonic tribe truly never had it as good as today in spite of sanctions and anything else cum the invasion.

    It’s of course a guess, but Baron reckons Putin will unleash all that Russia possesses in her arsenal of nukes, he will not hesitate, he will go all the way, and that scares Baron no end, he often has sleepless nights as if he could do anything about it.

  74. Briefing by the official representative of the RF Ministry of Defense Igor Konashenkov as of 11.00 June 17, 2022 on the progress of the special operation in Ukraine:

    Against the background of the growing number of military failures of the Kyiv regime and massive daily losses in manpower and equipment, the flow of foreign mercenaries to Ukraine has not only decreased, but is actually turning in the opposite direction.

    Despite the efforts of the Kyiv regime and the increase in payments, the process of departure of mercenaries to the “other” world or back to their countries of residence cannot be stopped by the Kiev leadership. The recent empty talk about “20,000” foreigners “fighting” against the Russian armed forces is a common lie.

    The Russian Defense Ministry monitors and records the stay in Ukraine of each representative of this international gathering of “headless horsemen”.Moreover, not only mercenaries directly involved in hostilities as part of Ukrainian units are now included in the databases. The Defense Ministry also takes into account instructors who arrived to train, assist in the operation and repair of Western weapons supplied to Ukraine.

    Among European countries, the undisputed leader in the number of both arrived and dead mercenaries is Poland. Since the beginning of the special military operation, 1831 people have arrived in Ukraine, of which 378 have already been destroyed and 272 mercenaries have left for their homeland. It is followed by Romania – 504 arrived, 102 dead, 98 left. In third place is the UK: 422 arrivals, 101 deaths, 95 departures.

    From the American continent, Canada is in the lead: 601 arrived, 162 destroyed, 169 left. In second place is the United States: 530 arrived, 214 died, 227 left.

    From the Middle East, Transcaucasia and Asia, most of all, 355 mercenaries arrived from Georgia, of which 120 were destroyed and 90 left Ukraine. This is followed by militants of terrorist groups deployed from US-controlled areas of the Syrian Trans-Euphrates – 200 people. To date, 80 of them have been destroyed and 66 have left Ukraine.

    In total, the lists of the Russian Defense Ministry as of June 17, 2022 include mercenaries and weapons specialists from 64 countries. Since the beginning of the special military operation, 6956 people arrived in Ukraine, 1956 have already been destroyed, 1779 left. While they are alive, 3221 mercenaries have not yet been captured, or have not reached the Ukrainian border.

    Detailed data is published on the information resources of the Russian Ministry of Defense on the Internet. The Embassies of the appropriate countries were informed.

    It may be that Russia is prepared, as a last resort, to launch nuclear weapons against Europe and the USA, the result would be catastrophic for the entire world.
    The point is that we simply don’t know to what lengths Russia is prepared to go in respect of the proxy US NATO conflict in the Ukraine. As the war whilst acting as a running sore on the economy, does not pose an existential threat I’m of the opinion that the possibility of escalation to nuclear war is at prest low.

    Where do yo get them from, Milud!
    You are probably witnessing the new intake in the vlog. Course graduates would have pre tested the proctal equipment in other orifices before oral deployment!

    The Russians will have to respond to the bait of having Kaliningrad cut off, that will show us how far Putin may go, God forbid if he calls the bluff, goes Full MOnty.

  79. Baron

    I suspect that both Russia and the EUNATO have exhaustively wargamed the possibility of sanctions and escalation and see the possibility as remote.
    At present the concern of the replacement Russian settlers in Konigsburg is a potential shortage of DIY materials rather than manning the barricades against the crazed militarist hordes that Von Der Leyen and Stoltenberg may unleash.
    That said I’m concerned that British forces are inextricably interwoven into this military strategic tapestry and that Johnsons intention is to increase our commitment and make it irrevocable.
    Thus rejoining the EU via NATO commitments.

  80. You should listen to Simon’s musings in this video till the end, in fact you can easily shift the cursor to roughly the middle of the 10 minute slot if you don’t have the time, there he goes though the case of the 66-year Scottish guy who refused to say whether he was pregnant, as a result was refused to give blood, but then Simon goes on, and it’s the going on that will put a smile on your face, or is it despair how loopy we’ve become.

    The thing that worries Baron about our Armed Forces, Noa, is their strength, the politicians keep yapping about the threats to our democracy, yet the size of those that will protect us, one hopes, will be cut to 72,500 by 2025, that’s roughly five divisions or a third what Ukraine furnished against the Russians, Ukraine a country that close to broke.

    It’s fine to focus on cyber warfare, but that won’t safe us if and when the fighting starts, we may have a string of water between us and the Continent, but our enemies have parachute regiments, boats and planes.

  82. I am very grateful to Gary Winston Lineker for drawing attention to the lifelong racism that many of us, myself included, have suffered merely because of our skin pigmentation. Since I was a child I have felt a foreigner in my own country during the summer months. Mr Lineker is fortunate in having been gifted the melanin reserves to cultivate his tan over a number of decades without ham, giving him in old age the distressed leathery permanent patina that he exhibits today. He has been able to enjoy his millionaire lavish sunshine holiday lifestyle in a manner that those less fortunate than himself could not begin to contemplate. i.e. unclothed! He appears to have thus far dodged the melanomas, SQCs and BCCs that those of us with less fortunate than Winny have had to deal with.

  83. Baron – June 21st, 2022 – 23:32

    “the politicians keep yapping about the threats to our democracy”

    Indeed they do, Baron.
    The permanent political class use the term “our democracy” to maintain the charade that it is inclusive of the rest of us. It is not. What we have today is a developing Oligarchy. Crony capitalism gone bad. (i.e. state sponsored fascism) The politicians who once gifted favours to business are now in servitude to it.

  84. @9:38 additional

    If you’ve ever wondered why the current crop of MPs of all parties…
    (with a few exceptions)

    1) Are not very bright
    2) Couldn’t give a f*ck
    3) Have no moral compass
    4) Have no philosophical policy differences
    etc. etc.

    It is because they are not running the show.
    They are there purely to maintain the charade.

    “without ham” should read “without harm” 😉

    Or even without haram. Halal food certification. There’s money in that. I would be surprised if his crisp company haven’t already jumped on that bandwagon – smoky bacon excepted.

    Sadly the armed forces are an expensive joke. In the army not enough soldiers, a high percentage of whom are Africans, Gurkas or South Sea Islanders after UK settlement, over 50% are unfit for active service, women and other sexes, with equipment such as the new APCs that dont work. The upgrade of our few remaining tanks will cost nearly a million pounds each.
    The RAF has only 4 Typhoons that are fit for service at any one time. Hving spent billions on buying US UAFs we now buy cheap and cheerful drones from the Ottomans, who have made themselves world leaders in that field. a glorious opportunity to lead ourselves was thron away.

    The fleet is robbed to keep the Typhoons flying, as for the rest US equipemnt that has exorbitantly high maintennace costs. The Navy is lumbered with its useless and expensive, indefensiible carriers, and a small number of ineffective destroyers. The bureaucratic MoD which controls all procurement has more personnel than the RAF.
    Such resources as we do have are directed at escorting an invading muslim army into our country to utilise surplus hotel accommodation.
    The only thing that saves this country from conquest is the unenviable task any invader would face in restoring order from the ourdure created by 25 years of treasonous incompetent governance.

    We are all Ugandan now, or wanna be-if we want to any life at all.

  89. If only those pulling the levers in the West were to listen to the Colonel, the sooner the war ends the better, the loss of life is regrettable, as is the destruction of assets in a country that was broke before the war began:

    Did you know… that HMG’s Secretary of State for the Colonies, Joseph Chamberlain [Neville’s dad], offered Uganda to Theodor Herzl and the Zionist Commission to be settled as the jewish homeland instead of Palestine? The offer made in 1903 was rejected in by the Commission Congress in 1904.
    [Ref: Orientations by Sir Ronald Storrs KCMG; Chapter XV P 338 – 347;
    “Excursus on Zionism -Vere scire est per causas scire”. ]

    The rest, as they say, is history.
    Isn’t Uganda owned and run by the Mandarin speakers now?

  92. EC
    Is that Kigali, twinned with Kowloon, where the Han are ‘cleansing’ the locals, who in turn are moving to Kamden, where they are kleansing the locals…..
