 Edinburgh’s Book Festival was treated to a well-informed and witty talk about post-1789 France by historian and journalist Jonathan Fenby. Fair-minded, too.

While understandably talking up such ‘achievements’ as funding America’s thirty years of war to get shot of Britain (thus dividing the English-speaking Peoples), having one revolution after another (with no effect but the 35-hour working week, economic decline, over-taxation, the flight of talent to London, and the ceding of European leadership to Germany), and maintaining the country’s unique if mendacious system of quasi-polygyny (with most French politicians dying in the beds of their mistresses or whores), JF frankly admitted that France was a massively divided society whose intellectual, artistic and engineering pretensions had nose-dived (symbolized by existentialism and postmodernism running out of steam, the UK and USA achieving dominance in the arts and education, and the monopolistic Concorde and Channel Tunnel projects proving to be white elephants).

Just one thing. JF could not admit, any more than peecee-addled French politicos, that France had a Mueslie problem. Indeed, the word ‘Muslim’ made no appearance in his 45-minute talk to 300 festivallers; and he (and his French wife) evidently preferred the official elite view that La République would prove adequate to meet the seven-million-strong challenge of unemployable Maghreb Mueslis – just as it had contained Catholicism in the past (though that containment had worked by keeping the wilder religious superstitions out of Paris – as also by the murder of a million Catholics, tied in pairs and thrown into rivers to drown).

JF’s denial of any problem even found an echo with a smartly dressed middle-aged Brit who, though living in Paris (also with a French wife), denied any special awareness of the nightly torching of cars by Mueslis in the banlieus -- despite  Le Figaro reporting 130 burnings in Paris alone on Bastille Day, 14 vii 2015 (just a slight holiday excess on the 80-or-so vehicles burned nightly across France for the previous decade – though 1,000+ at New Year).

Apparently French government demands for press censorship had been heeded, though the Brit’s ignorance would have been assisted by his living on the nicer south side of Paris, near the Eiffel Tower.

{Funnily, JF’s disquisition was given on the same day (23 viii) that France, having no EU border with Belgium, had allowed a mad Muesli from Morocco, to bring in a small armoury – including a Kalashnikov – on a high-speed train headed for Paris. The A/A was only stopped from shooting dozens, and perhaps crashing the train, by the prompt intervention of three American servicemen and a British businessman who managed to restrain him till French railway officials unlocked themselves from the cabin where they had been equally quick to hide.}

{Seeking to appear a wise and far-seeing statesman for his republicanism-ravaged country, President Hollande told Froggies to expect a ‘French 9/11’ at any moment. But, still worse, it could not be long before jihadists learned to explode their bombs on trains in tunnels – thus not only killing hundreds but cutting railway lines for weeks and making France ungovernable.}


As Marxite throwback ‘JezWeCan’ Corbyn prepared to be anointed leader of Britain’s Labour’s Lost Party, evidence trickled out that the 66-year-old allotment keeper might be just the ticket for what remained of the country’s traditional trade unionists (now largely found in state sector sinecures ooops jobs). Not only was he anti-EU (e.g. Guardian, 25 viii, Polly Toynbee) and anti-Israel, thus attracting accusations of xenophobia and racism, but he was sexist enough to say that women who feared ogling and groping in the London Tube should be segregated into separate carriages.

Whether he might be might be seriously willing to keep out migrants competing for lowish-paid employment in Britopia must have crossed the minds of his notably all-White audiences.

Probably migrants paying thousands of pounds for arduous passage to serve as illegal slave labour in the West could be deterred only by closing down jobs in monopolies, welfare benefits, free schools, free medicine, employment law and ‘uman rights (especially to beg, hawk and trespass, and to have the vote, sex or tobacco in prison) for all but English-speaking, tax-paying British citizens of twenty years standing (or related to and living with such citizens); but at least cold baked bean connoisseur Corbyn looked capable of impressing voters with verbalization implying he might just contemplate moving toward some such defence of ‘the working class’ from the A/A hordes streaming into the EU with the full blessing of the West’s multiculticrazy media.


The advantages of well-managed Muesli immigration were on display as stunning Morocco-parented model and PR hostess Ahlam El Brinis, 20,

reached the semi-final round of the annual competition to find a ‘Miss Italia.’ Ahlam had grown up in Padua with her mother as a cook and a “hothouse” convent providing a strict Catholic education.

She counted herself as a non-practising Muslim but spoke no Arabic, did not want to be “defined by her faith” and agreed with her Moroccan grandmother that “religion is in the heart, not in the choice of clothes you wear.”

She had wanted to be a model as early as age 6 – presumably marking early and entirely adequate integration to Western ways. She felt “wholly Italian,” she said. Provocative photographs featuring her in scantily clad bikinis and lingerie had produced a barrage of insults and threats against her on social media for dishonouring Islam.

But “Insults and threats don’t hurt me,” she told La Tribuna di Treviso newspaper. “I will follow my own path. I have the total support of my family and my boyfriend, Christian, who uses social media to defend me.”

 Slovakia became the first EU country to tell Brussels and Berlin that it would not accept any of the Muesligrants proposed for foisting on it by the EUSSR’s multiculti tyrants. The country’s Interior Ministry explained that Slovakia had no mosques, so Muslim refugees from Syria etc. ‘would not feel at home’ (Wall Street Journal, 19 viii).

Janos Lazar, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff, claimed the country was 'under an organised attack' by human traffickers who weren't only transporting migrants but instructing them about how to abuse the European Union's refugee system (which had absorbed 108K Afro/Arab boat people in July alone).

The European Commission expressed its displeasure at the Slovakian plans and suggested they were ‘of dubious legality.’ Germany, Austria and Hungary were seething with protests at EU-recommended government plans to requisition empty flats and buildings to house A/A ‘refugees’ (few of whom had a mark on them or any published criticism of their homelands’ authorities to their names).

    Slovakia’s more general disinclination to accept A/As was agreed in polls by 70%+ of its population and reflected widespread eastern European rejection of any great role in absorbing the tidal wave of A/As which had been unleashed by France (backed by the US, UK and Germany) madly bringing down Libya’s Colonel Gadawfu and creating similar mayhem by trying to crush Syria’s President Basher Assad.

{76% of Slovaks had recorded themselves as Christian and only 0.2% as Muslim in a government survey in 2010. About a third of Slovakia’s Christians attended church at least once a week. How Slovakia proposed to check the religious affiliations of intending immigrants was not known, but presumably Arabic appearance would serve as a guide.}


Fed up with being forced to help Greece bring Muesligrants into the EU, Macedonia declared a state of emergency in an attempt to stem the flow of migrants over its southern border with Greece, deploying riot police in armoured vehicles and calling out the army (Reuters, 20 viii). Authorities said official border crossings remained open, but that they would “reduce illegal border entry to a minimum”.

A Reuters reporter near the border town of Gevgelija said a column of riot police armed with teargas and armoured vehicles had shut off passage for several thousand people now stranded in no-man’s land. “No more Macedonia,” one officer said in English to a Syrian man requesting passage.

    The flow of migrants into Gevgelija, which had hit 1,500 to 2,000 a day, was thus stopped. The clampdown came after days of chaotic scenes at the local railway station as thousands of people tried to board trains to Serbia, young children being passed through open carriage windows. Macedonia took its action as a Greek car ferry docked in Athens carrying 2,400 Syrian refugees from the island of Kos, just some of the 50,000 Middle Eastern, African and Asian migrants and refugees who had arrived in Greece in July alone. Macedonia was not itself an EU member – thanks to Greek objections.


 While Swedish authorities vied with those of Germany in idealism about taking in the wretched of the earth, more people supported the Sweden Democrats than any other political group in Sweden, according to a new poll which put the nationalists in the lead for the first time in history (AmRen, 20 viii). The Sweden Democrat party had been gradually rising in popularity since it scored 12.9% in the country’s last general election in September 2014. But a survey by pollsters YouGov found that 25.2% would vote for the nationalists, who were calling for dramatic cuts in immigration to Sweden.

    Prime Minister Stefan Löfven’s Social Democrat party -- which remained in favour of admitting large numbers of refugees from war-torn and otherwise atrocity-ridden and incompetent nations -- scored 23.4% in the poll. The centre-right Moderates, led by previous PM Anna Kinberg Batra saw their share cut to just 21.0%. The Sweden Democrats, with roots in the country’s radical right, had only entered parliament in 2010.

    Reporting from Sweden, where he had spent three weeks with his Swedish wife, Speccie editor Fraser Nelson remarked the drama and even thought the Stockholm government might be losing its grip:

"Even a tourist, walking through Stockholm this summer, would notice something unusual. The city has new visitors, who are changing its character. They sit outside coffee shops and on street corners, outside underground exits and bus stops; friendly people, saying ‘hej hej,’ while holding an coffee cup filled with a crown or two. Their belongings are often kept in large piles in the street, which no one moves. To visitors, it’s baffling: why is this tolerated? Where are the police? Why does no one keep order?"

Thoughtfully, FN saw trouble ahead because the Swedes were keener on ‘immigration’ (good for their self-image) than on actual immigrants (whose undoubted intelligence and motivation were insufficient to master Sweden’s mysterious language and egalitarian culture):

"Swedish is a tricky language to master, even for Europeans – and Swedish employers are notoriously insistent on good language. So if you don’t know your ‘ljus’ (‘candle’) from your ‘jos’ (‘juice’), you may struggle to be hired. Then come the more subtle factors like Sweden’s un-hierarchical employment system, where bosses prefer to drop hints rather than issue instructions.

    To outsiders, it can be tough to play this game of guess-what-the-boss-really-wants. The concept of “lagom” is hard for outsiders to understand, but at least there’s a word for it. No word covers the strange rules of the Swedish workplace.

    Moreover, it’s very hard to fire workers in Sweden – so bosses are wary about hiring. Strong employee protection laws build a wall around the world of employment – great for those inside, but dismaying for those outside. -- Often the young, and immigrants."

    {While the new ‘Conservative’ British Government showed little concern about 3rd-world immigration (except to provide higher fencing for A/As to scale in Calais), the surprise front runner to lead the Labour Party out of months of disaster and incompetence, ‘JezWeCan’ Corbyn, 66, was increasingly said by commentators to be ‘Eurosceptic’ and was thus prepared for the ‘Brexit’ that would provide the only way of freeing Britain from unthinking and presumably guilt-ridden EU multiculturalism.

In America, ‘The Donald’ maintained a healthy poll lead (even matching Hillary Clinton) despite taking ‘sexist’ pot shots at presumptuous blondes and saying undocumented migrants ‘would have to go’ – effectively demanding the same expulsion of dodgy Hispanics as the Hispanics of Dominica provided for the dodgy Negroes [typically Haitians] of their own country.}


A high road to studies of the brain basis of the g factor opened up as researchers at Oxford and Harvard reviewed 24 scientific papers on the effects in normal subjects of the anti-narcoleptic drug modafinil and reported the drug was safe, non-addictive and had wide beneficial effects – at least in the short term -- on attention and intellectual functioning.

The new review found that “the drug has many positive effects in healthy people, including enhancing attention, improving learning and memory and increasing something called fluid intelligence -- essentially our capacity to solve problems and think creatively.

One study also showed that modafinil made tasks seem more pleasurable. The longer and more complex the task tested, the more consistently modafinil conferred cognitive benefits, the authors of the review said” (Guardian, 20 viii, Helen Thomson).

The drug was by 2015 being used by a quarter of UK undergrads to help them prepare for and sit examinations; and it attracted overwhelmingly positive comments from users – some of whom used it to help stay up at night for reading novels, gambling, computer code writing and lorry driving. The new green light from academia would presumably encourage wider experimentation as to the biology of IQ.


 Race got as much of a mention as it was ever going to at the Grauniad-funded E’b*gger Book Festival as the bright and witty academic philosopher and polymath (1960s neuroscience a speciality) A.C.Grayling explained (to a packed tent of 500) that China’s preferences for conservatism, authoritarianism, conformity and predictability might well come to have far wider appeal if its slave-based economy kept booming – for businessmen and tyrants everywhere prefer unchanging stability to the ups and downs of democracy and free speech.

No matter that ACG was not inclined to mention any (London School) psychologists or (Thatcherite) historians who had studied and explained Chinese Himalaya-surmounting intelligence and orderliness, that the world already had plenty of rigid dictatorships to serve businessmen, that China would have to fight imaginatively for oil, that the main modern technology of the internet was of Western provenance, or that millions of Chinese students were choosing universities and careers abroad!

ACG was at least prepared to acknowledge and discuss deep-seated racial and cultural differences – even knowing what few Westerners knew, that Chinese language had no grammar and would thus prove quite unsuitable for reliable high-level communication between ‘globalized’ world citizens when they did not already know each other and each other’s contexts.

Though widely condemned as boorish for a possible allusion to the monthly hormonal problems of a blonde Fox News interviewerette who had accused him of rudeness about women, US Republican hopeful Donald Trump found himself stoutly defended by two Black social media artistes (NewsmaxTV, 9 viii).

Not only did they explain that The Donald had given an understandable riposte to a megastarlet who had overgeneralized from his slagging off one particular journaliste who was well known for abusing him, but they threw in commendation of his plan for thousand miles of fortified barbed wire to keep out the “criminals and rapists” which the Mexican authorities – “brighter than Washington politicians” – exported daily to the USA.


The first public call from an elected Western politician for military action to halt the A/A invasion of Europe came from the embattled mayor of Téteghem, near Dunkirk (where British gangs charged £1,500 for each ‘migrant’ they smuggled across the Channel). Saying he and his police found it impossible to discover enough evidence to enable arrests, he called for an Australian-style blockade across the Mediterranean armed with gunships because it was “the only solution” (Daily Telegraph, 12 viii).

The mayor’s call came as Greek islands like Kos and Lesbos had been swamped/swarmed/marauded by thousands of Syrians and Afghans, threatening the islands’ future tourist trade, and police had resorted to fire extinguishers, tear gas, pepper spray, stun grenades and sonic explosions to control madding crowds demanding official EU registration papers so they could proceed with their quest to reach Nordic El Dorado.


After a half century of the West failing to demand single-child policies as a condition of aid to third-world countries, the world’s population was forecast to increase from 2015’s 7.3 billion people to 9.7 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion at century’s end, John R. Wilmoth, the director of the United Nations Population Division, told a session focused on demographic forecasting at the 2015 Joint Statistical Meetings in Seattle (Science Daily, 10 viii).

The primary driver of global population growth was a projected increase in the population of Africa. That continent’s current population of 1.2 billion people was expected to rise to between 3.4 billion and 5.6 billion people by 2100. The continent’s population growth was due to persistent high levels of fertility and a recent slowdown in the rate of fertility decline.

In Nigeria -- the continent’s most-populous country, with a mean IQ of 69 -- the high fertility rate would result in a more than fourfold projected increase in total population by 2100 -- from 182 million to 752 million people.

Wilmoth said although there was some uncertainty about these future trends, there was a 90% chance Nigeria’s population would exceed 439 million people in 2100, which was nearly 2.5 times its 2015 size.


A miracle was provided at the world trade fair for stand-up comedians, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as successful young English comic Andrew Lawrence drew packed houses of 400 to hear his sustained mockery of political correctness. Though previously himself a lib-left-mouthing career comic winning Fringe awards, Lawrence had in 2014 picked a fight over UKIP* with the BBC’s ‘fat old baldy ethnic’ Dara O’Briain but found he could still find acclaim – not least from the Daily Telegraph, 11 viii – as he defended cancer expert Sir Tim Hunt (q.v.), feigned sympathy for ISIQ’s quest to establish that Mohammedanism was a religion of peace, and heretically maintained that Britain was ‘full up.’

Admittedly Lawrence did not touch on immigrant problems of low IQ, sexual diseases, incest, illiteracy and benefit dependence; but he did mention the two thousand girls pimped, drugged and raped by Pakistanis in Rotherham – provoking occasional walkouts from his audiences – and was unequivocal in identifying the terrors of PeeCee’s tyranny that required constant “carefulness” at even the once-freedom-loving Fringe.

* In 2014, AL had written on Facetube (25 x) :

"The reason UKIP have resonated with voters is because all the other parties are too spineless to tackle the issue of immigration.

Our elected representatives ceded control of the borders of this country to the EU and it's been catastrophic for us all -- an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works. Public transport infrastructure is dysfunctional. Hospitals and schools are dysfunctional. The housing crisis continues to blight our economic potential and destroy the hopes and dreams of a generation. The benefits system is totally out of control. All because there are far, far too many people living here.

For every wonderful, welcome skilled worker our open borders bring into this country, there are also benefit tourists and criminals. For every person that comes here and contributes richly to our culture, there are those that refuse to assimilate, which breeds distrust and has led to a fractured, broken society, where people have lost all sense of community.

Can't say that I'm a UKIP supporter, but I can see why other people are, and I don't disrespect them for it.

What I don't respect is lazy comedians, who market themselves as 'political' but rather than having the courage of their own convictions jump on the militant liberal bandwagon -- which has been the source of so much shit stand-up over the years -- so that they can get TV work and line their own pockets".


A half century after most intelligent people had realized that suicide was preferable to Alzheimers and the many other pains and problems of old age, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, declared himself in favour of medically assisted suicide (Daily Telegraph, 13 viii, 15 viii) – thus paving the way for recognition, perhaps by 2065, that most people would rather spend the largesse promised them by the modern Western state on useful causes (not least their spouses, grandchildren, churches, clubs and colleges) rather than on paying non-English-speaking nurses and socialism-schooled social workers to keep them barely alive till they were so wretched that even the most hard-hearted do-gooders could agree to put them on the Liverpool Pathway to merciful death.


The West’s best-liked non-Christian ethnic groups, the Jews and Palestinians, brought their tiresome animosities to one of the man-made beaches of the Seine, requiring 500 gendarmes to be drafted into Paris to preserve that capital’s self-image of sweet reason, secularism and lack of superstition and racism.

As the Jews took over the beach nearest Notre Dame in a PR stunt to advertise the delights of Tel Aviv, the Palestinians were determined to provide a reminder of children killed in Gaza (where the Palestinians had used them as human shields during the lobbing of bombs at Israel). Such was the police effort required to prevent violence that there were soon more police than tourists, Parisians and ethnics on the beach (D. Mail, 14 viii).

Using the work of Richard Lynn, Tatu van Hanen and one Jelche Wicherts, a website for businessmen provided iconic photos of the capital cities of the world’s 35 “smartest countries” – the dullest being apparently too embarrassing to include -- together with pictures of the 11 “smartest people” (who included a sunglass-sporting Greek girl, Albert Einstein, a Chinese ten-year-old boy and an American “bar bouncer, nude model and male stripper”).


As police investigations resumed into whether Sir Edward Heath KG MBE, UK PM from 1970 to 1974, had been a paedophile, an intereresting question arose. The British public had taken it on the chin as the reputations of such popular figures as Gary Glitter, Sir Jimmy Savile and Sir Rolf Harris had been destroyed by evidence of their paedofumbling and kindred internet searches. But would it so easily forget that millions had actually and repeatedly voted for a grammar-school-to-Balliol, liberal-Tory, anti-Nazi (Churchill-worshipping) fastidious loner who had sacked ‘racist’ Enoch Powell from his Tory Shadow Cabinet (and thus opened the highroad to the MSM-fêted diversification of Britain), admitted thousands of Ugandan-Asian refugees (which Labour had not), stood up to the miners who thought they owned the country, given way to the miners in the interests of peace, got Britain into ‘Europe’, got on famously well with Mao Tse Tung and later sulked unrelentingly at the left-loathed Mrs Thatcher (as she replaced him) and opposed the Bush/Blair Iraq war?

    And another question. Might it turn out that some of Bachelor Heath’s youthful playmates from boys’ state ‘care homes’ might have been inspired and helped to tread in his illustrious footsteps and become organists, conductors, international yachtsmen or statesmen – rather than ending drowned off his yacht or incinerated in Jersey school basements (as the wilder – and quite unproven – stories on the net would have it)?

    And another. Defended by some as ‘just a (repressed) homosexual’, might Sailor Heath turn out to have provided illustration of what modern yag propagandists had made MSM and HMG forget: that many male homosexuals allow their tastes to run to youths of below 16 (e.g. research and history summarized here and here).

(Typically, some 40% of male homosexuals admit to having sex sometimes or often with boys under age 16; but yags themselves commonly assume that virtually all of their fellow homosexuals are prone to pederasty.)

    A fine denunciation of the paedohunting of ancient cases on the flimsiest of evidence was provided by top Guardian columnist Simon Jenkins. But the latest outrageous case of Britain’s favourite bloodsport might do some good if it ended in important general questions being at last asked and answered.


Encouragingly for fans of a Nordic League, a German version of the Nordic Cross flag began to be seen at demonstrations of the Mueslisceptic ‘Pegida’ movement (D.Telegraph, 5 viii). Apparently the version chosen had been favoured by von Stauffenberg’s 1944 movement of resistance to Hitler:

According to Wikimedia, versions of the flag had been designed at some time or other for virtually all regions of northern Europe (including the Orkneys, Shetlands, West Riding of Yorkshire, and Calais). “The cross design symbolises Christianity and is depicted extending to the edges of the flag with the vertical part of the cross shifted to the hoist side as opposed to flags where the cross is centred on the flag (known as a Greek cross).”


 As some 7,000 A/As waited in Calais for a chance to stow away as illegal immigrants to El Dorado UK, having the French provide 300 more police in just one week to guard the Channel Tunnel and Daft Dave (from his beach) talk of closing the Tunnel at night, a high-quality survey of 28 relatively advanced countries found that common-or-garden immigration was not favoured by people as much as by politicos.

Nearly one in two people in the better economies of the world believed immigration was causing their country to change in ways they didn’t like, according to a 2015 Ipsos poll (Guardian, 7 viii). In many countries this was true of more than half of the population – in Turkey (84%), Italy (65%), Russia (59%), and in Belgium, France, Israel, South Africa, Great Britain, Hungary and India, the survey reported.

The proportion who agreed immigration was causing their country to change in ways they didn’t like was only below 30% in China, South Korea, Brazil and Japan – countries equally distinguished by having little or no immigration.

At the same time, the peecee BBC admitted that its recent callers had swung markedly to oppose mass immigration (R4, 7 viii, 13:00). {Such news could hardly come at a better time for those trying to nudge the English Labour Party and/or the Tories’ Boris Johnson in a nationalistic/anti-EU direction – leaving cuckservatives holding the howling baby of PeeCee for which they had been so keen to play godparent.

Across the pond, Donald Trump’s nationalism was finding favour; and The Donald happily made it his first priority to denounce PeeCee as he campaigned against lamestream Republicanism.}

Nordic mid-summer – called ‘the silly season’ because politicos and profs went on holiday – delivered an abundance of riches in Britain as peecee beach-seekers allowed central Kent to become a gridlocked lorry park as France’s illegal A/As (who declined to seek refugee status) and striking transport operatives created massive traffic delays (blockading many in their homes as well as cars); and the Labour Party made an unelectable IRA-, Hamas- and nationalization-supporting Marxist the front-runner in its idiotically long-drawn-out leadership contest – in its excitement neglecting that an anti-French and anti-EU nationalist pose would would provide the only sure way to electoral victory in 2020.

In the latest peecee regulations, it was forbidden to talk of Britain being swamped by hordes or swarms of illegal third-world aliens and their benefit-spongeing polygamous progeny, but quite OK for the Corbynator-backing leftist Communication Workers Union to hope to “purge the virus of Tony Blair” from Labour.

For ‘foreign policy’, the West arranged for Turkey to fight the Kurds, who were fighting ISIQ [pron. I’SSICK] which was fighting everyone except US multiculti ally Iraq [pron. EYERACK] which had run away.

{By contrast, the Antipodes in its mid-winter furnished a modicum of sense as lesbian superstarlet Ruby Rose apologized for having called Queensman PM Tony Abbott (who had restored a semblance of ‘White Australia’ policy) a “moron” and “sexist bigot” (for his rejection of yag marriage) and thus restored some dignity to public political discussion in Oz (Mail Online, 1 viii – with pleasing visual aids of the shapely if rather generously inked Ruby).}


As PM Daft Dave moved faintly towards a slightly tougher stance against Muesli mayhem and mutilation of females, a fine analysis of his new insistence on respect for ‘freedom’ was provided by Sunday Mail columnist Peter Hitchens (26 vii):

"...Our freedom comes from the 1689 Bill of Rights, which he doesn’t seem to know exists, from Magna Carta, which he can’t translate, from Habeas Corpus, which has been whittled away on the excuse of counter-terrorism, and from jury trial, which is fast disappearing. Freedom of speech certainly can’t be defended by banning ‘hate-preachers’, which Mr Cameron is so proud of doing. Freedom of speech is freedom above all for those whose views you dislike most.

Nor can it be strengthened by demanding that people publicly declare that they don’t hold certain opinions. Mr Cameron actually said: ‘We must demand that people also condemn the wild conspiracy theories, the anti-Semitism, and the sectarianism too. Being tough on this is entirely in keeping with our values’.

How on earth is he going to make this happen? Electric shocks until they get their minds right? Personally, I’d much rather know that such people held these frightful views, than have them forced to pretend they didn’t.

Then there is: ‘We need to put out of action the key extremist influencers who are careful to operate just inside the law, but who clearly detest British society and everything we stand for.’

Put out of action? If they are inside the law, which protects the freedom Mr Cameron so values, what does this foggy phrase mean? Sandbagging them as they come out of the mosque?

I’m also not very reassured that we have a Premier who thinks he can advise TV companies on who they should and should not invite on to the airwaves. I think we can all see where that leads.

Mr Cameron and Mr Blair, and their predecessors over decades, have gone a long way towards Islamising this country through uncontrolled immigration and state multiculturalism. They have begun to panic, because they at last realise what they have done, and rightly fear they cannot stop it."


Amidst the Labour leadership crisis, the BBC began to attend to the possibility that the party might turn nationalist or at least anti-EU – e.g. wheeling on the Guardian’s top young lefty, Owen Jones to moot as much (BBCR4, 27 vii, 13:25). But even though the Frenchies were at their most provocative (pouring urine over the British champion of the Tour de France, allowing A/A migrants and homegrown strikers to block the Channel, and even refusing to dish out sweets to console child victims of 5-hour traffic holdups), Labour MPs could not manage a squeak of protest about the conspicuous lunacy of Britain’s EU partners, so busy were they with their chosen project of demolishing socialist electoral hopes for a generation.


 That higher general intelligence is associated with being longer-lived (known since the 1960s and confirmed by Ian Deary in the 1980s) was reported to be a stronger effect in fraternal than in identical twins (D.Telegraph, 27 vii; CityA.M., 27 vii, ‘Intelligent people are genetically programmed to live longer’). A new review of twin studies (in Sweden, the USA and Denmark) by London University’s Rosalind Arden et al. estimated the link to be 95% genetic, attributed the result to the non-identical twins being more different from each other in their DNA, and presumed that brighter/longer-lived twins might eventually be shown to have fewer mutated genes.


 As the asinine authorities of Britain and France allowed a shanty town of 3,000 complete with electric light and restaurants to grow at Calais and the county of Kent to become a lorry park where people were afraid to leave their homes in case blocked roads prevented their return, even correspondents of the Guardian (29 vii) produced a majority pointing out to peecee politicos that:

the A/A arrivals were almost all healthy-looking young males – not the normal profile of ‘refugees’;

if the A/As were refugees, they were legally bound to seek asylum in the first safe country which they reached;

presumably France and Italy were ‘safe’ – like surely one or two north-African countries;

the A/As wanted to come to Britain principally because no identity cards were required, so employers could easily hire cheap illegals;

few of the ‘refugees’ ever gave evidence of having tried to reform the countries from which they wished to ‘escape’;

admitting a few thousand to show compassion would only mean that people traffickers would double their prices;

it was unheard of for the A/As or their leftist sympathisers to urge restoration of Europe’s empires;

China had become the major exploiter ooops trading partner for Africa yet was never asked to provide governance;

Peking had a good understanding of African needs and limitations – even if The g Factor could not be mentioned....

‘CUCKSERVATISM’ EXPLAINED (Washington Post, 29 vii, David Weigel)

....Twitter was the incubator. “Cuckservative,” a portmanteau of “conservative” and “cuckold” (i.e. a man whose wife has cheated on him) burned up Twitter as fans of Donald Trump’s politicking warred with the movement conservatives who opposed it....

What is “cuckservatism?” I’ll defer to Richard Spencer, president of the white nationalist National Policy Institute.

“#Cuckservative” is a full-scale revolt, by Identitarians and what I’ve called the ‘alt Right,’ against the Republican Party and conservative movement,” Spencer explained in an e-mail. “The ‘cuck’ slur is vulgar, yes, but then piercingly accurate. It is the cuckold who, whether knowingly or unknowingly, loses control of his future. This is an apt psychological portrait of white ‘conservatives,’ whose only identity is comprised of vague, abstract ‘values,’ and who are participating in the displacement of European Americans -– their own children.

{The point about ‘values’ is important. Peecee politicos – including lamestream conservatives – like to agree that Western countries should, of course, identify and promulgate their national ‘values.’ But it then turns out that – agreeably to the multiculturalist –countries worldwide have roughly the same official values (freedom, law, peace, democracy etc).

By contrast, Western countries differ at any one time in their preferred economic and political arrangements and institutions; but, whether they be left or right, Catholic or Protestant, cheese-eating or beer-drinking, they all provide a heaven on earth to which migrants would rather flock than to any country in Africa, Arabia or Asia.}


 The 2012 death of top London Schooler Phil Rushton was nicely commemorated in a collection of articles about his work (Nyborg, 2015, The Life History Approach to Human Differences, Ulster Institute for Social Research) – even if the biological “r-K” strategic contrast (between such extremes as bacteria and birch trees – see Brand, 1995, Person.&Indiv.Diffs. 19; McGreal, 2012; Templer, 2012) had only rather slight relevance to actual human racial differences.
