“We believe there would be significant disruption in the short term. Food prices would increase by up to 10 per cent with steeper rises in fresh produce prices….Unlike in 2008 our recession would be a local one, not an international one. This would make the currency depreciation more harmful….
“The UK would forfeit access to criminal justice levers. None of our mitigation measure would give the UK the same security capabilities as our current ones.
“A no-deal exit would enormously increase pressure on our law and security authorities and on our judicial system. The UK would be less safe as a result of this.”
From Sir Mark Sedwill’s No Deal Brexit letter to the Cabinet, April 2nd 2019
Now that PM Boris Johnson appears to be ‘out of the woods’ following his COVID19 infection, the very dirty war between the Whitehall barons (plus their media friends) and the BoJo inner circle (especially Dominic Cummings) is well beyond the woods, and into the open political savannah of Westminster. It goes beyond C19 as an issue, involves the spoilers in the Stop Brexit scorched earth last redoubt….and represents Phase 2 in the continuing plot by the Corporacratic State to gather yet more power unto itself.
Way back on December 21st 2019, I wrote this about the post-Brexit structure of UK government under Boris Johnson:
‘….the only news that really counts, frankly, is that Sir Mark ‘Elephant’ Sedwill is still there. Quelle surprise.
‘As long as the Archbishop of Counterespionage is still in place, then the unelected State is still in control. From here on, however, he will find himself up against Deadly Dom: and Cummings has taken two weeks off to prepare his idea of festivities – culling the Whitehall spoilers as quickly as possible, while drastically cutting the population of their fiefdoms. One key commonality between him and Boris Johnson is their desire to sweep clean when it comes to the pernicious amateurs.’
Sedwill runs the Cabinet Office. He is a very senior spook. He also heads up the entire Whitehall swamp. No bureaucrat in British history has previously held all three offices at once.
He is a dedicated blocist, an incorrigible Remainer, and a man who – through his unpleasant henchman Olly Robbins – constructed a coup d’état against the elected officials negotiating with the Brussels mafia during the 2018-19 period. Some observers may find the word coup too strong….too emotive, like that other word hated by Blairites, traitor. But in this case, the cap fits: Sedwill is no better than the Commissioners he chooses to serve in Belgium….and former Prime Minister Theresa May happily went along with the surreal circus we only stopped by the skin of our teeth.
I have never wavered from my view that the corporacrats led by Sedwill won’t give up the fight they lost through Britain’s one last despairing attempt at democracy. Obviously, despite his election success, Johnson did not feel strong enough to fire Sedwill: it is reminiscent, I suspect, of the Kennedy brothers having to tolerate the FBI’s J Edgar Hoover. These bottom-feeders know where every body is buried.
Sir Mark has had two enormous strokes of luck. Although his personal sovereignty looked wobbly for a while in January when Boris ordered a molehunt to purge persistent leakers among the Sir Humphreys, COVID19 was then painted onto the global political horizon, and after mid-March, the Prime Minister became infected with the virus himself.
Before getting into the detail of this current perfidy, it is important to name the game in play. As The Slog has pointed out in several posts passim, the Murdoch octopus wants the BBC obliterated and replaced by Sky: Cummings and Johnson agree the Beeb needs reform and a major purge, but they’re not about to hand massive media power to a family they have come to distrust. Sedwill wants Johnson and Cummings out, because he – along with his misanthropic Whitehall followers – sees no alternative to a powerful EU propped up by NATO…and because Cummings especially wants all the Amateur Night Dad’s Army fifth columnists growing roses under house arrest in Sussex.
We are witnessing the same mixed message, non-stop media bile Trump has faced since his election because we have the same fight going on here as in the US: between unelectable liberal fascists of the Opposition and global business Alt State on the one hand, and the duly elected political Executive on the other.
Only when the EC commissioners, NATO bigwigs, US neocons and Whitehall door-revolvers have all succeeded in killing liberal democracy on behalf of globalist technocracy will these reptiles be satisfied. Fauci is one of them, Gates another, then Barnier, Verhofstadt, Zuckerberg, Macron, the Pentagon, Texas oil, Big Pharma, Wall Street, the City, Murdoch, Biden, the Clintons, Blair and – trailing along invisibly behind them – possibly Keir Starmer….but more probably Jeremy Hunt.
They are not, like some naifs would suggest, a coven indulging in odd rituals and funny handshakes. They are just the dangerously psychopathic 3% of Homo sapiens who consider it their inalienable right to tell everyone else what to do. They are tied together only by a selfish megalomania in common – if you follow the irony.
What Leftlibs don’t seem able to grasp is that they’re being effortlessly played as Useful Idiots, to use the clinically accurate phrase first coined by Lenin. The lack of united Opposition and historical awareness means that very few people know what field of play they’re on. This is bigger than Parties, bigger than Brexit, and far bigger than Contrick19: this is the Final of the World hegemony knockout Cup. The End Game.
And so to the latest score: Sedwill, the security services and the senior Whitehall Europhiles are seizing opportunities at every turn (with the help of a broad media spectrum including Sky and the BBC) to present the Johnson Administration as a gaggle of shambolic squabbling infants in an adult world. The goal is to derail Brexit.
They are leaking to the following titles freely, exaggerating reality at all times and inventing chaos: the Times, Sun, Mail, Guardian and Independent. Established Fleet Street contacts talk of “daily hour-long phone calls at The Guardian” and the Mail having “virtually an open line to senior officials”.
This leaking has included ‘lies’ about Johnson’s illness, the ‘disappearing PM’ before his illness, ‘widespread impatience in the Cabinet’ with lack of action, ‘open warfare on lockdown’, completely misrepresenting Matt Hancock’s fear of lockdown exit, depicting lockdown exiteers as bloodthirsty goforits one minute – and then as fiscally naive the next.
This isn’t just “calling out” the Government along the lines of rent-a-foghorn crazed Zombie Piers Morgan: it’s an out and out conspiracy to destroy an elected Government.
Even worse, they are working to thwart supply chains by pleading bureaucratic niceties or simply ignoring offers of help – across a wide range of product fields ranging from drug management, surgical masks, gowns, personal volunteering and even infection-testing.
Further, a round dozen medical and modelling opinion leaders have expressed concerns to me about what one called “deliberately wheeling out Neal Ferguson as an alarmist who would perform his usual trick of Grim Reaper doom”, and another “Whitehall’s long-established trick of f**king up Ministers they don’t like by introducing them to plausible amateurs”. A third simply said, “Ferguson is poorly regarded in his field, and even in some virology circles not trusted”.
And last but not least, there have been at least twenty-four instances to my knowledge alone of mass use of COVID19 as a cause of death that is inaccurate – and in some cases, pernicious invention.
They are aided and abetted by motormouth-amateurs who pitch up on social media, with ‘authoritative’ predictions of doom along the lines of ‘I heard a chap from the ONS on Graham Vine last week saying the latest seasonal death figures are spiking for March (I think) so I’m sorry, but your assertion is quite wrong’. Some of these super-spreaders are just dickheads, some are trolls, all expect me to take them seriously. But day in, day out, the Times reprints the myths and the Sun simply prints lies with all the nasty numbers doubled.
The Johnson administration is not led by science (as it claims over and again – a sure sign of protesting too much) it is led into dark corners by half-baked and counterfeit advice from donkeys and jackals respectively.
A good proportion of the donkeys also have questionable conflicts of interest leading back to all the usual suspects; but the jackals are the same internationalist anti-democratic revolving-door mandarins whose sole vantage point in relation to the Citizen is from the looking-down-on position. Why 85% of citizens still look up to these people is a mystery that I no longer feel able to unravel.
As a lifelong master of manipulation via mayhem, Sir Mark Sedwill is without question the main antimatter causing the poultergeists to fly in all directions. He is depicted by the media to whom his accolytes leak as a gentle giant offering calm advice to lengthen the lockdown, shorten the lockdown, consider the damage to the NHS, consider the cost to the economy of protecting the NHS, advise Boris to rest fully, insist that Boris gets back to work and – the ultimate stroke of evil genius – get people to wear face masks but also ensure that front-line health workers don’t die from a lack of masks.
The search that the Prime Minister began in January to penetrate and then expunge those in the sieve is going nowhere because it is being conducted by the Masterchef straining loose excrement and hot water into the sieve.
On his return – if he wants to stop Contrick19 from becoming just another weapon in the war to stop Brexit – Boris Johnson has a duty to rid us of Sir Mark Sedwill and all those who do his bidding. Has he got the balls to do it? Where do his real loyalties lie?
