An independent inquiry is investigating three decades of child abuse in Lambeth Childrens' Homes. The lunatic-left council of Red Ted Knight that was in power for much of this time was accused of fraud and corruption but this is the first time that this particular horror has been uncovered. The inquiry lists more than 700 offences involving mostly black children. The offences were committed against a background of chaos while the Council championed various left-wing causes. Ted Knight was disqualified from being a councillor in 1986 and he died last year. Lambeth Council has been trying to clean up its act in recent years. Its latest report states:
"Fraud and corruption poses a significant risk to Lambeth Council, as is the case with every other large organisation. During the three financial years commencing 1 April 2016, fraud to the value of £10.5 million has been identified by the counter fraud officers in the Council. Whilst this is a significant amount of money, it is accepted that the true figure of loss to fraudulent activity will be much higher. The National Crime Agency estimates the total cost of fraud in the UK to be £190 billion, with the public sector accounting for £40 billion of the losses."
Vic Sarson writes:
I worked for the old London County Council for a brief period sixty years ago and saw how corrupt it was at all levels. Lambeth Council was in character identical to the LCC. In Lambeth, as in Southwark, there are plans to demolish a number of housing estates and disperse residence from their homes and neighbourhoods. There are strong opposition campaigns on the estates but the councillors and the same party responsible for it were re-elected at last election.
People are like sheep. They vote for a party label regardless of who or what is wearing it. Democracy - so called - is based on the false and absurd premise that ignorance multiplied by X number equals wisdom. A bad system to be sure but one generally preferred to any other. Political parties are just another form of organised gang.
In the 1940s and 50s the Labour and Conservative Parties had huge memberships and could, to an extent, be seen to be representative of the broad mass of the population, but today they are a mere shadow of what they were. And so it is that a tiny and unrepresentative minority now dominates the politics of the country. They set the political agenda in accordance with their own desires and prejudices. The desires and real agenda, and interest, of the people are ignored. By definition none of this is democratic.
Today, much of the Tory Party are spivs (men typically characterized by flashy dress, who make a living by disreputable dealings) especially those on the front bench. The Labour Party despises ordinary working people as if they were dirt beneath their shoes. The Liberal-Democrats are all things to all men, usually combining the worst elements of the other two.
A political party after all is the embodiment of prejudice - and nothing more!
Many of the young men in prison for political offences deserve to be locked up for promoting violence against minorities and politicians they disagree with. Our respect for the British Justice is diminished by show trials such as that of Oliver Bel. They were determined to get Oliver because he is not your average skinhead nationalist. He is a Cambridge graduate in maths and physics who questioned the Holocaust. He was also found to be in possession of a book called 'The Anarchist Cookbook' which is sold by Amazon. For these 'crimes' he is now serving what amounts to a four year sentence.
There is a world of difference between violent hooligans and respectable students like Oliver Bel. The various nationalist groups have not done enough to warn young people of the dangers of breaking the law. The National Front is trying to address the problem. Here is their report on the 2019 National Front AGM:
"Former NF chairman and former MEP Andrew Brons, as guest speaker, cautioned us that the Establishment in its desperation to hold on to its illegitimate power will get increasingly vicious. Andrew said it is our duty to maintain our racial-nationalist principles: never to sell out to civic-multi-racial-nationalism, but equally never to break the law; but to tread carefully the narrow patriotic path, ignoring the blandishments and the traps of criminally intended agent provocateurs. Always keep it legal was Andrew's much appreciated contribution to our AGM."
Michael Woodbridge (pictured) runs 'The Link' which campaigns for political prisoners. In the July-August edition of the nationalist magazine 'Heritage and Destiny' he wrote:
"Nowadays it's occasionally argued that young hot-headed racial-nationalists bring their cause into disrepute by providing the globalist nexus with what Sir Oswald Mosley once described as a living caricature of our movement. However, it is to be hoped that the sheer iniquity of the Oliver Bel trial and his continued torment will expose to all and sundry where the real moral weakness in our society lies."

Jews in the Third Reich
Since I was accused of naivety for accepting the Holocaust I have looked into the subject of the Jews in Germany during WW2. There is no doubt that they were persecuted by the Nazis, starting with Crystal Night in 1938, nevertheless many of them fought for the Fatherland. Cambridge University researcher Bryan Rigg, in his book 'Hitler's Jewish Soldiers' (available from Amazon), claims that up to 150,000 Jews served in the armed forces of the Third Reich, including two Field Marshals.
Erich von Manstein was one of Hitler's favourite generals. He was raised by Prussian aristocrats but his biological father was Eduard von Lewinski who was probably of Jewish ancestry, according to the respected historian Antony Beevor.
Erhard Milch was a Luftwaffe Field Marshall. His father was a Jewish pharmacist called Anton Milch. The SS investigated both generals but their reports were never published. Herman Goering intervened in the case of Milch by declaring that he would decide who was a Jew and who was an Aryan.
While Erich von Manstein directed operations on the Russian Front and Erhard Milch was trying to bomb Britain into submission, the Jewish Hospital in Berlin functioned normally. The 'Jewish News' reported 13th December 2020:
"In 1945 the Russians entered the city, when they opened the doors of the Jewish Hospital in Berlin, they were shocked to find 800 Jews who had survived the Holocaust within the walls of the hospital. How was it possible? The hospital was the only Jewish organisation to operate during the Nazi period. Why?"
Adolf Hitler must have known about about the heritage of his generals and the existence of the Jewish Hospital in Berlin. A lifetime after the Second World War we think we know all about it, but some questions remain unanswered.
A few years ago Ken Livingstone, then a prominent Labour politician, got himself into trouble by pointing out that Ze'ev Jabotinsky (pictured), a Zionist leader, held talks with the Nazis on Jewish emigration to Palestine. This might seem strange but both parties wanted to get the Jews out of Europe. How different things might have been if their talks had been successful.
We are short of truck drivers, nurses, policemen, fruit pickers and construction workers. The Brexiteers refuse to believe that we need workers from mainland Europe. They argue that we could fill these vacancies by paying higher wages. But farmers can't pay more for pickers without pricing themselves out of the market, and the same goes for all the other jobs. Thousands of workers from the EU have gone home since Brexit, but the underlying cause of our labour shortages is our declining birth rate. Since 1950 our birth rate has dropped dramatically. If we want to avoid immigration we must have more babies and an educational system to train the truck drivers, nurses and doctors of the future.
The birth rate has dropped all over the West because women use contraception in order to pursue careers. The government should halt this trend by providing tax breaks, cheap mortgages, and nursery facilities to encourage them to have children. Such measures have already been introduced in Russia and Hungary.
The UK has relied on imported labour for many years. We hired Irish labourers to build the canals and the railways that made the Industrial Revolution possible; we brought in West Indians to drive London's buses in the Fifties; we welcomed the Asians from East Africa in the Seventies, especially the doctors; and we couldn't get enough Poles in the last twenty years. I worked with them in the Construction Industry and I found them to be conservative, religious, and hard working.
The Tory answer is to encourage mass migration from Asia and Africa. Boris Johnson and his gang of piratical free traders have already had talks with Third World leaders in the hope of getting trade deals in exchange for their workers.
How ironic that immigration was one of the driving forces behind Brexit. Nigel Farage was upset to hear people speaking Polish on a commuter train, but he is presumably happy to hear his fellow passengers speaking Yoruba, Hindi or Cantonese.
The damage done to the British economy by our Brexit-supporting newspapers is starting to be felt. The Guardian, The Mirror, and The Financial Times, which have small circulations, supported our membership of the EU, but the mass circulation Tory papers, particularly The Daily Mail and The Sun, used mendacious propaganda to achieve their 2% winning margin in the referendum. The false threat of 70 million Turkish immigrants was just one of their lurid fantasies.
To overcome our labour shortage we will have to breed a new generation of home-grown workers, and invest in automation, but for the present we must rely on immigration. We must therefore decide what sort of immigrants we want. We can either choose Europeans who share our race and culture, or Asians and Africans. This is not what people expected when they voted to 'get our country back'.
Nation Revisited # 3, February 2006 predicted that the Allied invasion of Afghanistan would be a disaster:
"The Americans cheered when Taliban Mujahideen lynched President Najibullah in Aryana Square in Kabul in 1996. Washington saw the Taliban as good anti-communists and friends of the West. They backed them with arms and training just as they backed Saddam Hussein against the Iranian revolutionaries. Now Britain is sending thousands more troops to Afghanistan to help fight a civil war that has cost over 1,600 lives in the past year. The American-installed regime of Hamid Karzai has proven its capitalist credentials by doubling opium production and flooding Britain with drugs. This has turned into another American foreign policy disaster."
We should have learned from history. The three British-Afghan Wars of 1849, 1880 and 1919 ultimately ended in Afghan independence. Rudyard Kipling wrote:
"When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains, and the women come out to cut off what remains, just roll on your rifle and blow out your brains, and go to your God like a soldier."
The Russians did no better. They occupied Afghanistan from 1979 until 1989 but their costly adventure helped to bring down the Soviet Union.
America and her NATO allies invaded Afghanistan to oust the Taliban regime sheltering Osama Bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaeda terrorists held responsible for the 9/11 attacks. He was eventually killed by US Navy Seals in neighbouring Pakistan in 2011.
We have now pulled out of Afghanistan and the Taliban have taken over. We lost thousands of soldiers and spent billions of dollars trying to make the Afghan National Army into an efficient fighting force, only to see it surrender to the Taliban. The ANA were understandardly reluctant to fight for a totally corrupt regime after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country in a helicopter stuffed with banknotes.
Britain intervened in the Middle East and we also took part in the NATO offensive against Yugoslavia in 1989, but that was a European problem and therefore within our remit. Since our foreign policy follows the United States we can only hope that Washington has learned its lesson. Osama Bin Laden's assassination in Pakistan could have been achieved without an invasion of Afghanistan.
