The Anti-Black Plague
“Black Death” of 1347-1351 Kills Half of Europe . . .
Black Women Most Affected
Even the fleas in medieval London hated black women.
That’s the only conclusion I could draw from a series of headlines this week implying that no one suffered more from the bubonic plague that ravaged London in the mid-1300s than black women.
This came as quite the wake-up call to me, seeing as how in my repulsively bigoted ignorance I was unaware there were any black women in Western Europe back then. (more…)
Jordan Peterson was asked by journalist Camilla Tominey about his views on multiculturalism during a recent exclusive interview with GB News, Britain’s nominally Right-leaning news station. In a refreshingly scathing tirade, the Canadian public intellectual branded the idea of mixing incongruous population groups together as “a miracle of stupidity,” correctly making the link between diversity of cultures and the potential within multicultural societies for civil conflict.

A Postmortem on Tommy Robinson’s Armistice Day Rally
Tommy Robinson’s Armistice Day rally has come and gone. Fortunately, it was not as bad as I and a lot of people feared — but it was bad enough.
To recap, after a successful 100,000-person pro-Palestine protest in London in October, the organizers scheduled another, even larger protest for November 11. (more…)
Sepoys on the dark side of the Moon
India may not seem to lie within the remit of this column, but bear with me. Britain’s ex-colony — which seems to be a description that fits a lot of nations now outpacing the old country — has just landed a spacecraft on the Moon, although it has not been confirmed whether, in line with Indian trains, there were dozens of people hanging off its hull.

Editor’s Note: The following is a transcript by John Morgan of a British National Party stump speech, once thought lost, that Jonathan Bowden gave in Liverpool on November 28, 2008.

I decided to return to London and chance the bombs; things were quiet enough. An agent in Bow Street handed me the keys of two rooms in Drury Lane.
180 Drury Lane is still there; its six two-room gas-lit tenements are now three expensive flats, but the old shoe-repairer shop, S. Krantz and Son, Est. 1904 is still on the ground floor. (more…)
I hated being wicked, but I was tricked and cheated. I am truly sorry for it, but what could a poor girl do? — Henry Mayhew, interview with a street beggar, London Labour and the London Poor
But what can a poor boy do? — The Rolling Stones, “Street Fighting Man”
History has always troubled me. I don’t mean the grand Hegelian sweep of the past; that would be enough to trouble anyone. I mean the fact that I know so little about it. Not the kings and queens of England and the Ottoman Empire and the battles, but the minutiae — the lives of the little people. (more…)
Defund the (British) Police: Peel’s Nine Principles
The United States of America and the United Kingdom are both, as you might expect in these transvaluative times, disunited realms. Remaining loyal to Yuri Bezmenov, I believe this disunity is entirely manufactured and intentional, and the main point of interest is the marginally different approaches taken to destabilizing two once-great nations. One major difference in disruptive operations lies in the two countries’ undermining of the power of the police. (more…)
Nostalgia: something we all feel. For some of us it is most poignant when we feel nostalgia for a time we never even knew. A time when our cities and countries were majority white. A time before the family was under daily assault. A time when some things still made sense. We, of course, are cursed to know that the seeds of our own destruction were already being sown in these times. We look back at such eras both fondly and with annoyance. How could our fathers and grandfathers betray us as they did? What are we left with but to pick our way through the ruins? (more…)
A rose by any other name
When I was growing up, or at least getting bigger, my parents were fairly liberal about swearing in the house. “Cussing” is, I believe, an American equivalent. This was not an injunction for or against swearing an oath on the Bible. But rules are rules, and there was always one word banned in our house: the dread C-word. How nice to be reminded of this childhood memory by Britain’s National Health Service (NHS), still wasting money after all these years. They have indeed banned the C-word. (more…)
