Devo-Max: Ireland 1922 to Scotland 2022 – Live. Die. Repeat.

by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (© 2017 – free download – released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).

(45-50 minutes) Using historical precedents and patterns which persist throughout the British Imperial construct, I’ll explain why ‘Devo-Max’ has recently been touted as a third choice in a ‘next’ Scottish referendum and how against the backdrop of inevitable Tory militarisation of Brexit Britain – and the end of British State – the US/UK military-intelligence cartel intend use this ploy to retain a degree of ‘invisible’ control over Scotland’s resources and psyche; and in doing so seed division and wear-down Scots morale in order to gaslight-compel economic concessions and to erode political resolve intended force the continued siting of their Trident nuclear submarines based near the City of Glasgow…

For those unaware, ‘Devo-Max’ had previously been ruled out by Westminster as an option in the 2014 independence referendum simply because as the middle ground ‘comprise’ it would’ve won hands down.

As an ex-British Army Sgt Major with just over 25 years served (1985-2011) I’d have voted for Devo Max back then. ‘Devo-Max’ is in essence a ‘Home Rule’ rehash which would’ve kept Scotland within the British State with Westminster retaining control over strategic issues such as Defence (notably Trident based at Faslane) whilst enabling Scotland to have control over a host of other areas such as its own media, natural resources and economic wealth. So no prizes for guessing why Westminster ruled it out as an option.

As such, like any self-respecting Scotsman forced to make a choice on whether Scotland should run Scotland, or continue to be run by a toxically-entitled Eton aristocratic clique; the choice was a no-brainer and I campaigned for Yes. Most people still refer to it as the ‘Scottish referendum’ but to be more accurate it was a British corporate-political propaganda war waged against Scotland.

And so to be frank I’ve learned more about the real history of the British State since 2014 than I’d been ‘taught’ in all the years before it, having had my ‘British prism’ semi-permanently sealed in pre/adolescence as a State school indoctrinated council house kid. This is why I became politicised on my life-long journey towards ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’.

Because during all the No campaigns’ self-proclaimed ‘Project Fear’ mongering and their incessant lies during the 2014 ‘referendum’, leading into the weeks and days before the 18th September vote, polling for Yes worried Westminster so much a propaganda ploy called ‘The Vow’ was deployed and splashed on the front page of a corporate-elite tabloid rag as if it were a legitimate document. It was of was of course a meaningless Machiavellian ‘expectation management’ stunt to facilitate dinosaur Gordon Brown – with zero political mandate – to lie through his back teeth by making empty promises he and the British State had no intention of fulfilling, all of which was ‘legitimised’ by the broadcast ‘news’ media;

But that’s all water under the bridge right? All in the past yes? Nope. Because the past is forever in the present with the same patterns, which if left unchallenged, are engineered to shape the future. Which is why as I’ll set out, we keep going back to the future – and why it isn’t all ‘coincidence’.

It’s not coincidence either that I put this piece out today because it marks the 50th anniversary of the 1972 massacre in the north of Ireland known as ‘Bloody Sunday’, during which 14 unarmed civilians taking part in a peaceful civil rights march, were shot dead in Derry by British forces who claimed they were fired upon first. This has since been proven to be a lie and the half-century long UK government, military, police, judiciary and media cover-up continues.

However prior to this a lesser known ‘Bloody Sunday’ took place in Dublin in 1920 where as a reprisal for IRA killings of British military intelligence agents in the morning, later in the afternoon British Crown forces of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the infamous ‘Black & Tans’ entered Croke Park which was packed full of spectators watching a Gaelic football match.

Claiming their own British intelligence sources had informed them some of the IRA men were in the stadium (some were) the RIC and Black & Tans further claimed they were then fired upon from within the crowd – before opening up on them – indiscriminately killing 28 people and wounding 77. Perversely, given the enclosed space the death toll could have been much higher, as similarly, the British murdered 369 innocent civilians (unofficial estimates are far higher) and wounded thousands in an enclosed space during the 1919 Amritsar Massacre.

However unlike in Ireland it would appear no such ‘they shot at us firstpretext was trotted out in India, quite probably because they have brown skin. And so the British felt there was no need to ‘justify’ their actions with a lie. I mean, why make matters ‘worse’ right? Because that’s the twisted irony of Etonian ‘gentlemen’; an ‘unnecessary’ lie is the actual classist ‘burden’ to bear, more so than their cyclical mass-murder of ‘lesser’ people.

But do you see the ongoing pretext which takes place when the victims are in a ‘British’/Irish domestic setting and they’re white? The forces perpetrating the massacre feel the need to ‘justify’ it and generally do so by playing the ‘victim’.

You see victimhood is actually a British State propaganda weapon routinely deployed by the perpetrator to seize the ‘moral authority’, which then buries and attempts to propaganda omit these atrocities as having ever occurred at all. This is in order they can be carried out time and again in both the UK domestic environment; from Bloody Sunday to the Battle of Orgreave, to the Hillsborough tragedy and the most recent cover-up to Grenfell Tower but also abroad, most notably the illegal 2003 war in Iraq.

However being propaganda practiced for so long, I’m absolutely convinced the British State began going much further than merely claiming victimhood after the fact, but rather have cyclically set-up the necessary Machiavellian pretexts to portray themselves as ‘victim’ before and during staging their atrocities.

And so I contend that against the seamless, ideological backdrop of a poverty and sectarian class-war specifically waged on Catholic communities in the north of Ireland, these communities having been inspired by Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights movement to undertake peaceful marches for basic human right and freedoms, the British State deliberately started ‘The Troubles’ in circa 1969 and deliberately intended for the 1972 civil rights march to become a massacre;

‘Dressed-up by State propaganda as a ‘cultural-religious conflict’, it was actually a 10 Downing Street, MI5 and British Army intelligence-led strategy to begin the so-called ‘Troubles’ in 1969 in order to start a war, which would not only serve to galvanise the ‘stoic’ British ‘construct’ within Ulster but to enable the UK Government to portray itself around the world as the ‘hard-done-to-victim’ and the ‘responsible adult’ in the room, unavoidably caught in the middle of a centuries-long battle between sectarian zealots.’ ‘A Very British State Boogeyman: The ‘MI’-RA’ (2019)

This is the reality of the British condition which needs conflict because;

‘The British construct cannot exist without adversity; internal or external, or without an enemy; real or imagined. Which is why it creates them – to toxically ‘galvanise’ a fabricated ‘stoic-victim’ mentality. And explains why we ‘children’ will always be at war with someone until we break the UK aristocrat-engineered cycles of our own indoctrinated destruction’.The Real Last UK Colony: The English Working Masses’ (2017)

And which in doing so, by sparking and fomenting ‘The Troubles’ to get the backlash the British needed to continue to exist in the north of Ireland, would also serve as a 30 year long advanced warning to Scots (& the Welsh) who might have ideas of peaceful marches for independence – should we discover in the early days of The McCrone Report – the vast oil reserves in Scotland’s territorial waters incorporated within its North Sea maritime borders.

This is why I’m convinced ‘The Troubles’ – which I think ‘romantically’ understates the brutality of the time – were preceded by equally brutal and UK propaganda omitted events which I’ve already alluded to. You see these events in the north of Ireland couldn’t have taken place if events half a century earlier hadn’t happened; specifically the 1919-21 Irish War of Independence having itself been inspired by the ‘failed’ 1916 Easter Uprising which would eventually lead to forcing master of the dark arts Winston Churchill to the negotiation table and his 1922 Anglo Irish ‘Treaty’.

However as accomplished soldier as Michael Collins was, he was no match for the Machiavellian Churchill who as a key negotiator in Lloyd George’s Government, engineered the ‘treaty’ to result in the partition of Ireland (a playbook precursor to his 1947 genocidal partition of India during which a million people were displaced or murdered and today still sees a bitter stand-off between the nuclear armed India and Pakistan).

This British State partition created ‘Northern Ireland’ where the 16th/17th century British Imperial ‘plantation’ policy settling Scottish and English Protestants to Anglicise and ‘civilise’ Ireland had been most concentrated. And which some 350 years later became the renewed Westminster aristocracy pretext to sustain 20th century sectarian divisions and to perpetuate even more atrocities, not only in ‘The Province’ but in the Irish ‘Free’ State itself to turn brother against brother and even supplying the weapons on both sides of the ‘border’ to do so.

For clarity, I wouldn’t dream of trying to judge in hindsight the right and wrongs of the anti-Treaty and Free State protagonists. They were all in an impossible situation and up against what was – until very recently – without doubt the darkest, most cunning Empire since the Roman Empire. By the way, Empire’s don’t die – not really. They simply recede from consciousness, migrate and re-emerge elsewhere.

The lesson here is pretext and to truly appreciate and consciously process the Imperial patterns housed in centuries-long events, which are themselves the ideological-legacy weapons left behind by past leaders for future conflicts; with which, each subsequent generation of Etonians will cyclically re-arm themselves in the perennial present e.g. The Suez, Northern Ireland, The Falklands and soon Scotland’s Faslane and the so-called ‘Crown Estates’ lands and sea-beds.

And as such, far from being ‘unfortunate hangovers’ of a dim and distant past these pretexts are in fact used as the ‘legal’ and even morally-outraged ‘right’ to ‘defend’ them, or rather to retain power and control over their resources, brutalise and ‘police’ them within an inch of their existences, until such time as the colonies on rare occasions outlive their usefulness and ‘let go’ or as is more often the omitted case – are set to finally break ‘free’, with many ironically still clinging onto the construct via The British ‘Commonwealth’.

Occasionally, even if the British construct knows it won’t succeed in retaining a strategically important or profitable colony militarily – it will nonetheless, motivated also by bitterness and hatred, incite atrocities against local populations such those initiated by Churchill during the 1952-63 Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya, as well as instigate genocide as a ‘parting shot’ like that which was engineered by Whitehall during the Indo-Pakistan partition in 1947, as was the ongoing Palestinian ‘Nakba’ in 1948. And prior those atrocities was Churchill’s deliberately engineered Bengal Famine in 1943 killing an estimated 2-3 million people – during WWII – which again is meted out on a Biblical scale to ensure there remains regional fractures which can be perpetually exploited.

In Ireland’s case, the Westminster aristocracy and specifically Churchill, in weaponising his own Imperial past in his present, devised a ‘border’ scheme which would not only continue the British bloodletting presence in the north of Ireland but in that very moment, he could secure his ‘treaty’ – not Ireland’s. Because he knew that with the Irish people so sick of war in Europe and in Ireland, Churchill had a gun to their head in the shape of a British State backlash – should the treaty agreement fail. And so this would pile impossible pressure on Irish Dáil politicians who would fall over themselves to deliver ‘peace’.

However in securing this ‘peace’ in the immediate term would as Churchill no doubt already intended, foreseeably fracture the Irish Republican movement and given the history between the British State and the Irish, would inevitably result in the 1922/23 Irish Civil War and thereby create subsequent opportunities paved by Churchill, for future leaders of the UK Government and specifically Tory 1922 Committee trustees, to enable them to sustain decades of violence in Ulster, the very fear of which – of violence spilling back across the ‘border’ into Ireland again – would in addition to the standard British State blackmail and bribery, retain Machiavellian, psychological and therefore actual influence over The Irish ‘Free’ State – without the requirement for a Union Flag to be flying over Dublin Castle.

And Scotland will be dealt with no differently. Certainly now that independence is inevitable – right? Not quite. It would be inevitable if we weren’t up against not only the British State but its ‘Special Relationship’ corporate political partner-in-war-crimes – and the most powerful Empire ever known on the face of the planet – the United States of America.

You see what everyone outside of the meta-fascist agenda fails to truly acknowledge is what the Stars and Stripes stands to ‘lose’ strategically – in addition to losing control over and getting its cut of Scotland’s North Sea oil revenues which currently flow to The White House & Wall Street as well as Westminster & The City of London – if Scotland were ever allowed to succeed in gaining ‘independence’. And this is why;

‘Nothing short of all-out war led by the US & UK will stop the inevitable disintegration of the so-called ‘United’ Kingdom; leading to the unceremonious end of the British Monarchy; the fall of the Anglosphere ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence-sharing apparatus which will result in a blunted NATO and with it; an independent Scotland’s red-line removal of the UK/US nuclear weapons from our most populated City of Glasgow’. ‘Glasgow COP26: Scotland’s Mission Impossible – Defending a ‘Eunuch’ Nation’ (2021)

You see in their US/UK corporate elite eyes, those inevitable consequences are too much to ‘lose’ for the sake of an inconsequential “minor entity in north Britain” (Lord George Robertson) or for the sake of an ancient Sovereign nation reduced over the course of three centuries since the ‘Union’, to an English ‘county’ status. And so to maintain their power, privilege, wealth and the military-intelligence apparatus – the Orwellian ‘Party’ of ‘1984’ infamy need Scotland to die.

At the moment Scotland’s Unicorn is being slowly strangled by Westminster’s chains which can be seen in their denial of Scotland’s right to exist and which has become ever more concentrated since Brexit. Indeed the British State is still trying to extinguish us altogether via ‘Gleichschaltung Gaslight: The Eradication of Scots Historic-Cultural Identity’ (2017) and via the fascist ‘Internal Market Bill – A UK Enabling Act, Anschluss, Regime Change, A Soldier’s Psychological Tool & ‘Rope-A-Dope’ Distraction’ (2020) – which similarly is how the proposed Devo Max ‘solution’ should be viewed.

You see just like the Internal Market Act (2021) ‘Devo Max’ is also a gaslight ruse which will sell the idea of ‘stability’ on the surface but which is in fact a ploy to maintain some degree of the status quo. It’s aim is for the anachronistic ‘Crown Estate’ cartel to keep some of their current corporate gains and maintain some form of grip on Scotland’s resources which will run in tandem with a propaganda campaign to guilt-trip Scots into compliance, and ‘expected’ to ‘share’ our resources as a matter of legacy ‘right’.

However doing so would from the very outset diminish Scotland’s future negotiating position(s) on and outside this island and never truly allow Scotland to be free of the expectation and sense of self-righteous, morally ‘superior’ entitlement that runs throughout the British psyche; because no matter what concessions you make or what you give ‘It’ – it’ll never be enough. History has taught us that nothing is ever enough for narcissists. This is because;

‘Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement and inveterate victimhood, is the group-characteristic extension of narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business model extension of joint Government and corporate engineered crisis-capitalism’. ‘Characteristics Of An Individual Narcissist & A Fascist State’ (© 2017)

Moreover, if Scotland can’t be allowed to manage its own resources as any other country in Europe does and is ‘expected’ to gift England a ‘share’ for ‘old times sake’, then the English themselves will never learn to stand on their own two feet; which let’s face it England hasn’t done for centuries, if it ever actually has at all. (Won’t be popular for that but it’s a fact).

Think about this too; it’s a strange phenomena whereby the predominantly English-British condition (British ‘Scots’ and ‘Welsh’ do this too) will look down or across society to find fault in people or blame them simply because they don’t think or feel like them, yet will never ever everunder any circumstances – look upwardly at the posh aristocrat cartel and hold them accountable because they believe they are ‘of them’.

It’s almost as if the indoctrinated sense of British exceptionalism leads them to believe that their unacknowledged dependence on Scotland is a ‘benevolent act’ on their behalf towards their ‘inferior’ neighbours to the north. Without which, this indoctriNation is unable to maintain the ‘superior’ British prism and with it sustain their anachronistic, warring world view and ‘senior’ hierarchical place in it which ironically, needs a guiding ‘comfort blanket’ clinging onto Etonian apron-strings and American coattails.

“Once again, a form of war has taught us who we are…”

This puffed-up ‘State’ that cannot exist without wars has been increasingly evident in the dismissive post-Brexit British abuse Scotland has been subjected to by the toxically ‘entitled’ Westminster aristocracy, and its demonstrable attempts to destabilise and undermine Scotland as a nation.

And as more people come to consciously process that for the British construct to rise above mediocrity, it has always needed adversity and conflict to exist and victimhood-steeped self-righteous ‘moral outrage’ to matter. And as its hidden truths of generational atrocities are unearthed – particularly during ‘The Troubles’ – neither the world and just as importantly will the English working masses themselves expect Scots to have to hold another referendum to secure its freedom and escape the British prism prison.

Certainly not when the 55 million populace south of the border finally process that Nigel Farage and UKIP were in fact Tory projects platformed by their mainstream media all along, whose role was to create the far-right space necessary for ‘The Party’ to fill with fascist policies and propaganda.

And as such, these 55 million Englishmen and women are about to take their own ‘independence’ from their Westminster aristocracy and in doing so deliver Scotland’s and Wales independence and a reunified Ireland.

This is why I believe the seed of ‘Devo Max’ has been re-planted. Not to actually deliver Devo Max per se but – knowing that the writing is on the wall for the British State – ‘The Party’ elite cartel outside of the ‘usual US/UK suspects’, will use the notion of Devo Max itself to undermine Scottish unity – just as Churchill achieved in 1922 via his Anglo Irish Treaty. But in doing so today’s Tories, faced with the prospect of further mass civil unrest in England and the threat of (US/‘UK’ intelligence-cartel) atrocities waged in Scotland, will compel the Scottish people to put pressure on the all too ‘pliable’ Nicola Sturgeon and channel her SNP to ‘compromise’ – by snatching a Devo Max defeat from the jaws of an outright independence victory.

How? As Westminster attempt to turn the British military on and subdue the English population, and the media placate, coerce and guilt-shame them into compliance, British and US intelligence assets will specifically orchestrate violence waged in and against Scotland. This will of course be media propaganda framed as an ‘internal’ Scots mass civil unrest and to portray Scotland as the backwards ‘basket case’ the British State always tries to make us out to be.

Indeed, securing the resource-siphoning cohesion of the British construct is the true purpose not only the BBC but entire UK corporate ‘news’ media who in the guise of keeping us informed, often act as subtle ‘stoic’-propaganda stenographers for the US/UK kleptocrat cartel, and ‘legitimise’, ‘moralise’ and ‘patriotise’ policies needed to protect and consolidate power by turning truth on its head and normalising the demonstrably absurd.

As British military manpower resources won’t last effectively much beyond a week (if that) without the popular support of the population who are united in the anger at the Tories, the Westminster cartel as a whole – red and blue – specifically need a pretext to initiate their original 2017 plan which after multiple failed attempts since, is currently underway yet again. And we’re all witnessing it.

‘Why have the US and the UK chosen to whip up a massive campaign against a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine, that makes no sense in mid-winter against a well-equipped and fiercely patriotic Ukraine?’ via @declassifiedUK (link below)

Because the thing is, far from Johnson wanting to negotiate a peace where a war hasn’t yet started, he needs to coordinate with Putin AND Zelensky to start a war in order to save his and ‘The Party’s’ own skin.

And it’s all taking place against the backdrop of the US armed, puppet Government in Ukraine whose soldiers and people, as are ordinary Russians – as are we all – being played by the US/UK Governments and their fascist Tripartite Pact partner Vladimir Putin; the three of whom together with the complicit corporate media are trying to contain and control the narratives between themselves with minimal scope for objective, outside interference.

Between them they are attempting to start the war that engineers the Tory UK ‘National Emergency’ they so desperately need in order to smokescreen the unfolding Brexit sea-ports chaos and enable a ‘war-footing’ to seek outside ‘assistance’ from – you guessed it – their very own US co-conspirators.

This was originally intended to take place under the Trump Presidency via ‘Op Fukuglaschu’ – A Trigger for Global Fascism with the UK population having been psychologically softened-up in the weeks and months beforehand via the NHS cyber attack ‘inevitability narrative’

…and which just prior to the failed ‘July Crisis’ capitalist attempt, as part of the PsyOp lead-in, specifically blamed Iran for the cyber ‘attack’ on Westminster computers which took place on 23rd June 2017.

However that was the same day I flew over to Berlin (freedom of movement people!) prior to the main attempt taking place and catastrophically interrupted the plan just before ‘It’ could be unleashed during July 2017. I’ve outlined this in the short video below which has been downloaded over 35K times in the last six months and which upon Tory militarisation, will act as a benchmark to measure the accuracy of my wider interpretations.

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism;

“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Failing US specific ‘intervention’ – or in other words yet another failed coup d’etat attempt – the EU, UN or NATO elements might compel or indeed insist on a ‘neutral’ military presence to stop the violence.

This would seem reasonable enough on the surface but we’ll know if those managing this are Orwellian ‘Party’ plants intent on maintaining the hierarchical status quo or at the very least, shielding those in power from having to face due process for war crimes and crimes against humanity, not only for what they attempted but their attempts since; to blame then draw Iran into war via Faslane in Strathclyde in Scotland, with subsequent attempts via Syria, India and Pakistan, Palestine/Israel, the Suez and Afghanistan – during which they’ve murdered thousands of innocent people – in pursuit of their much-vaunted “Global Britain” and Atlantic Bridge founder Liam Fox’s symbolism-laced “Empire 2.0” project.

That stated, any such external-force deployment on mainland Britain would be relatively short-lived too. This is because as part of the ‘asymmetric-warfare’ or ‘hybrid-war’, a number of global meta-fascist coup related propaganda narratives are also unravelling, the most significant and compelling of which was also ‘predicted’ by Orwell but hasn’t yet entered into the mass consciousness – simply because it doesn’t fit with our conditioned cultural biases and gender stereotypes;

“When we can cut man from his own past, then we can cut him from his family, his children, other men… If you’re a man, you’re the last man. Your kind is extinct. We are the inheritors. Do you understand that you’re alone? You are outside of history. You unexist”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

As such, like it or not a global juggernaut is headed humanity’s way. People will inevitably overcome their mass cognitive dissonance which will see a considerable number of western ‘democracies’ and especially those in the ‘Five Eyes’ media-intelligence Anglosphere cartel; UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand become militarised. The key at this stage will be to ensure the police and military are legitimately protecting the populace and not shielding the powerful from due process.

This will happen as we come to terms with what was and still is being manipulated; a precedented military recruitment campaign to feed an endless stream of poor, directionless yet patriotic young men who are being simultaneously further induced into a mass depression by being demonised, dehumanised and guilt-shamed channelled into a ‘heroic’ military uniform, in order to seamlessly supply the necessary cannon-fodder for an endless global war.

That propaganda campaign? #MeToo.

I’ll say it again; #MeToo is a precedented propaganda campaign to divide, decimate and drive predictable emotional-behavioural responses designed to manipulate men – specifically white heterosexual men who are the backbone of western armies and the key demographic to controlling the streets – by making them more susceptible to State and societal subservience.

In the meantime the corporate-political media cartel will continue to gaslight populations and specifically Scotland, as part of the psychological softening-up which will attempt to emotionally blackmail and empathy-compel all Scots to accept the ‘short-term’ gain to secure ‘peace and stability’ via a Devo Max-esque ‘solution’ (without an actual ‘referendum’ being held).

In short, there’ll be no ‘British State’ as such but Scotland – and its resources – will still be chained to ‘It’ in all but name via corporate ‘Crown Estate’ means, with Scots having been channelled into compliance by media projected blame, victimhood, guilt and fear which are always in the typical abusers armoury.

And so just like post-wars Ireland in 1922, the lethal theatre for the illusion of a ‘free’ Scotland is about to be staged on the back of the inevitable militarisation of the Tories own failing coup d’etat; with the aim of ensuring US/UK nuclear weapons continue to poison Scotland’s waters next to its largest City of Glasgow – despite their ‘Trojan Horse’ attempt to end Scotland altogether via ‘Op Fukuglaschu’ in 2017 and since, via the Middle East and by attempting to restart the dilapidated Hunterston nuclear reactor; ‘Hunterston (Oven Ready Brexit) Scotland’s Tombstone?’ (2019) and ‘Yellowhammer Anagram: ‘Orwell Mayhem’ by Cummings “Meltdown” Symbolism’ (2019)

On some shameless level, they will attempt ensure a percentage of oil and renewables revenues flow uninterrupted to the ‘invisible Empire’ based in London, DC and Moscow, albeit with a little extra ‘pocket money’ for the Scots, aided no doubt by current British cartel backhanders given to their fascist red and blue Tory and corporate plants in a ‘Scottish Free State’, by duping the population into repeating the same predictable pretext pattern mistakes.

A pattern in which a seemingly ‘independent’ Scotland mimics the same century-long illusion currently found in ‘independent’ Ireland, that’s so-called democracy has also has been marshalled by ‘The Party’ through Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael who between them have mirrored the same destructive policies found in ‘UK’ and US today; to drive the abject poverty, homelessness, wholesale socioeconomic deprivation that’s Machiavellian intent is to remove individual and collective dignity in order to create an induced State of depression making for a more malleable populace, and where too the GARDA (police) don’t serve the people but prioritise the protection of corporate-political power over public wellbeing – a perfect fit for ‘Airstrip One’.

No, there isn’t a Union Flag flying over Dublin Castle but its still there in its ideology and ‘It’ intends to fly invisibly over Edinburgh Castle – long after ‘Great Britain’ has ‘ended’.

Imperial pretexts and patterns. There’s a deliberate rationale as to why the British condition is either at or always on the edge of war. It needs war to exist. Live. Die. Repeat.

This piece is dedicated to the rebellious Irish spirit and the beautiful memory of Delores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries. The already free-minded people of Scotland thank you.

Colonel Blimp: The Life & Death of Global Britain

by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (© 2017 – free download – released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).

(18-20 minutes) In an unbelievably vast field of competition ‘The Life & Death of Colonel Blimp’ (1943) directed by Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger (subsequently explored by author A.L. Kennedy in her book of the same title) is considered by critics to be one of the best British war films ever made. I’ve personally only just discovered it however see some striking characteristic parallels with people, politicians and events today some of which are in ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ – so I’m very familiar with the premise. So are you. You just don’t know It yet…

Unlike most cyclically-reinforced WWII-centric film propaganda themes which underpin the sadomasochist mass-psychosis basis of so-called UK ‘democracy’, and the characteristically inflated sense of ‘British being’ soaked in Monarchistic moral-righteousness, self-flagellating stiff-upper lip stoicism and martyrised triumph over adversity always ‘against the oddsof course – ‘Colonel Blimp’ is a satirical take centred on its leading character ‘Clive Wynne-Candy’s’ journey from lowly Lieutenant in The Boer War, through WWI and eventually reaching the dizzying heights of Major-General in WWII. His story, interspersed with a German military rival and a romantic love-interest, returns to a constant, cyclical theme surrounding his ‘reluctance’ to evolve either as military strategist or indeed as a man, preoccupied as he is within his British Imperial prism.

However the ‘Colonel Blimp’ character itself is a cartoon by David Low which he claims was based on a conversation overheard in a Turkish sauna between two British Army Calvary officers he subsequently embodied in ‘Blimp’ – suitably named after the barrage balloons – as being arcane, arrogant, jingoistic and stereotypically ‘British’, which were further excruciatingly epitomised by Blimp’s walrus moustache and his erratic, occasionally incoherent and posh “Gad Sir!” outbursts.

The ‘fictitious’ Blimp was of course a generic, satirical dig at the entire British Establishment and their preoccupation with Empire yet isolationism, incandescence with foreigners yet ‘superior right’ to retain rule over them, loathing of the working class yet amass their wealth on the backs of them, whilst espousing conquest and disdain for democracy. You see like all informative ‘fiction’, Blimp had been born in ‘reality’ inspired by and embodied within a single representative protagonist.

Winston Churchill, himself a Calvary Officer during The Boer War and a WWI veteran later had a keen oversight on WWII propaganda output. And so upon being briefed on the ‘Life & Death of Colonel Blimp’ and seeing the personal parallels with his own career and character – he was less than impressed. This was too close to the mark so he had film production temporarily halted before trying to have it banned before its release. Powell & Pressburger had to assuage Churchill that the borrowed lampoon of ‘Colonel Blimp’ and specifically his ‘journey’ wasn’t based on him. But of course – it was.

“Shall I tell you a terrible truth about politics and human nature? You can probably make a good case for almost any course of action.” Boris Johnson (2013)

Perhaps it was just sheer vanity on Churchill’s part or maybe it was something more profound he’d been unnerved by but couldn’t expose as part of his argument against its release, not without drawing ‘disproportionate’ suspicion to a mere ‘satire’ and in doing so risk giving away a vital revelation to inadvertently reveal the British Imperial ‘secret’ hidden in plain view; that behind closed doors the Blimp ‘caricature’ is in fact the behavioural reality of the British aristocrat ‘class’ which is occasionally exposed, and the respected democratic ‘Statesmen’ they portray in Parliamentis the actual theatre itself. But not just any old theatre. It never was.

And as we’ll see in due course with the illusion of British ‘diversity’ only existing on your television sets, the Colonel Blimp actors will mobilise brute force onto the streets and in doing so, will divert public anger away from themselves onto those very same minorities.

“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.” Joseph Goebbels

Because as we’re witnessing today, the surreal lines between comedy and tragedy have become blurred like never before. All that’s changed is that the ‘harmless satire’ has been catastrophically exposed. ‘Parody’ is retreating to give way to the reality of its lethality, as the torn theatrical mask slowly slips to reveal the perennial Imperialist undercurrent of a once barely concealed ‘State’ of contempt for anything and anyone ‘It’ isn’t.

Unable to overcome this ‘indoctriNation’ we couldn’t process It before but now their contempt is out in the open. Gone is the Boris Johnson ‘bon-ami’ persona; the fabricated character he, #ToryAnalytica and the UK corporate-media cultivated over the course of decades, with his ‘roguish hair-ruffled’ look and ‘quirky’ faux-pas which were repeatedly brushed aside by his racist, sexist, xenophobe and now patently failing fascist apologists as “Boris just being Boris”.

Some of Johnson’s more bizarre ‘Borisisms’ which in our individual and collective cognitive dissonance ‘state’ of mass-psychosis we scoff at and ignore, are in fact narcissistic, Machiavellian ‘dead cat’ distractions but also expressions of his knowledge and power which he’s waving in our faces, often concealed in symbolism which is further camouflaged by his characteristic ‘lampoon legend’. More obvious however, is that this individual political actor’s ‘character’ has evaporated to reveal a pathologically disturbed individual representative of the collective British psyche and character as a whole.

“Propaganda doesn’t deceive people. It allows them to deceive themselves”. Eric Hoffer

Just like a uniformed ‘Walter Mitty’ on Remembrance Sunday feigning supreme confidence with a too-good-to-be-true ‘James Bond’ backstory which often embellished their own and even ‘borrowed’ others ‘good-guy’ experiences, a once ‘invisible’ but incredibly fragile-ego now belies a tangible contagion of entitlement, hypocrisy and victimhood which has exposed the British gaslight-theatre to reveal an insecure, overcompensating sadomasochist character steeped in a dual Schrodinger ‘State’ of being housed in a ‘superiority-persecution complex’ which runs throughout its very DNA. (See ‘Narcisstate’ and ‘Characteristics of An Individual Narcissist & A Fascist State’ (2017) at the end).

And as people will eventually come to understand, had It not been catastrophically interrupted in Berlin in June 2017; had It all gone to plan against the ‘inevitability narrative’ backdrop of the Parliamentary and NHS cyberattack in Spring 2017, had this headline, this particular Voltaire absurdity become atrocity which was subsequently blamed on Iran

‘Defence Secretary unable to deny Trident nuclear submarines run on same outdated software hackers exploited to cripple NHS systems’. The Independent, 14th May 2017

…then Boris Johnson’s fascist, Tory crisis-capitalist “Titanic success of Brexit” to handover the ‘British’ and Irish populations to the real ‘Special Relationship’ housed in US & UK corporate-political interests would have ‘succeeded’ to simultaneously militarise both Brexit and the Trump Presidency. And Johnson would have ‘gone down’ in British Whig and world ‘history’ as the 21st century Churchill.

Know why? Because Churchill has already gone down in ‘history’ as an ‘inspirational hero’ having been indoctrinated into the popular public consciousness via ‘factual’ dramatisations…

…despite when serving in Gladstone’s Government, having invented the infamous ‘Black & Tans’ made up of battle-hardened poverty-stricken British veterans and Irish Protestants fresh from the WWI trenches who terrorised Irish Catholic communities during the 1920 Irish War of Independence, then engineered the 1921/22 Irish Civil War itself through his Anglo-Irish ‘Treaty’ using the threat of a new all-out war waged against Ireland if they refused to accept his terms.

However this was just his British Imperialist apprenticeship as the genocidal maniac that was Winston Churchill later played the central role to deliberately engineer the Bengal Famine in 1943, killing an estimated 2-3 million people during WWII

…and then turned his guns on Greek communists who’d fought and defeated the Nazis in the dying embers of that very same war.

This was to safeguard the Greek monarchy whose Philippos Andreou, Prince of Greece and Denmark, whose family had changed their name from the Germanic ‘Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderberg-Glücksburg’ to the much safer ‘Mountbatten’ (of Lord Mountbatten paedophile infamy) which was itself the anglicised version of ‘Battenberg’, who subsequently married his distant cousin Queen Elizabeth ‘Windsor’ whose predecessors had also changed their family name from the Germanic ‘Saxe-Coburg-Gotha’ during WWI.

You see how it’s all a centuries-long incestuous Imperialist fuck-fest which in its contemporary form, is sustained by mutually supportive Anglo-American aristocrat interests whose propaganda-led wars are deliberately engineered on an ever-increased scale of atrocity in line with technological advancements, to periodically decimate their own and others societies in order to maintain power and control over entire populations – and crucially of course – to retain their ‘Crown Estate’ dominion over natural resource wealth.

And whilst Churchill himself wasn’t in the Prime Ministerial hot-seat during the Whitehall engineered 1947 India-Pakistan partition in which 1-2 million people were killed with 15 million displaced, or for the Palestinian ‘Nakba’ in 1948 leading to the ongoing Israeli apartheid, he was back in the PM chair during the start of the 1952-63 Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya which saw some 10,000 locals killed, many of whom were tortured to death by British soldiers in prison camps.

And so believe me, in time, people will process that what’s really taking place is the collapse of an anachronistic corrupt construct built on Rome (and beyond) which is actually being deconstructed in front of our very childlike eyes; ‘Fascism & Empire: Militarist-Capitalist Branding (Trump/Brexit) Bias by Patriotic Commission & Camouflaged Omission’ (2017).

And when people process ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ further than they’ve already done so far without even realising, then the Johnson/Churchill historic-theatre comparison and my short excerpt below – will all begin to make logical and rational sense;

‘All of which was working in food produce propaganda parallel with a wider drip-fed campaign by ‘Gleichschaltung Gaslight: The Eradication of Scots Historic-Cultural Identity’ (2017) taking place pervasively by cyclically-reinforced “British” TV Volksgemeinschaft propaganda programming and abundantly “British” red, white and blue Union Flags in ‘UK’ supermarket isles, in preparation for the installed war-time ‘Prime Minister’ Boris Johnson to lead the call for a ‘country‘ called Britain to ‘unify’ as they dealt with a self-inflicted National Security emergency centred on Scotland and blamed on Iran to secure both countries oil, militarise both the Trump Presidency and Brexit Britain and in doing so, simultaneously unite western ‘democracies’ to mobilise a US/UK-led global fascism.’Op Fukuglaschu’ – A Trigger for Global Fascism’ (2018)

You see, the dangerously absurd satire we’re witnessing today is bordering on a long-overdue, island-prison Brexit Britain based atrocity, which the collective ‘Colonel Blimp’ aristocrat-cartel needs to violently inflict via a PlanB ‘Black Swan’ event delivered to impact on a global carnage scale, in order to get the ‘Global Britain’ plan back on its Orwellian ‘Airstrip One’ concentration camp train-tracks.

Since 2017 we’ve all been witness to many PlanB attempts to start the war and to mobilise a truly global fascism. So often in fact, that it seems as if we’ve resigned ourselves to these renewed evil efforts as somehow ‘normal’ and just coincidence. They’re not.

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism;

“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Below are brief outlines (some with #GG links and interpretations) regarding the numerous attempts which I perceive have failed partly because having been alerted, the existing safeguard protocols in place to prevent a ‘fictional’ ‘Dr Strangelove’ scenario have been robust enough on all ‘sides’ to withstand ‘Colonel Blimp’ and ‘Global Britain’s’ lethal theatre.

A number PlanB attempts have taken place such as;

March 2018 the ‘Russian’ Novichok ‘attack’, April 2018 the US/UK & French bombing of Syria and May 2019 the Gulf of Oman Tanker ‘attack’.

Aug/Sept 2019 – the media omitted attempt to restart the dilapidated Hunterston nuclear power station via ‘Yellowhammer Anagram: ‘Orwell Mayhem’ by Cummings “Meltdown” Symbolism’ (2019) which was again set to blame Iran.

September 2020 – another Britain (or northern France) based nuclear reactor likely to be Hunterston was subsequently ‘re-attempted’, as symbolically expressed by both Dominic Cummings and Boris Johnson as their infamous “oven ready Brexit”. The preceding psychological softening-up this time, was set to blame China via ongoing propaganda stereotypes and accused of numerous cyberattacks, espionage and ongoing IT hacking ‘inevitability narratives’ (Huweii etc).

The “oven ready” attempt ran in tandem with the 2020 COVID blame-game which again attempted to pin it on China, specifically via Wuhan ‘wet markets’ and ‘laboratory leak’ narratives; the truth of which – paradoxically – is entirely irrelevant. This is because in ‘reality’ the truth doesn’t matter – feelings do.

So what ‘matters’ is whatever the orchestrated ‘Five Eyes’ corporate media cartel pumps out via simultaneity, repetition and cyclical reinforcement. All of which is uniformly designed to drive and steer emotions in our ‘feelings trump facts’ existences, which in turn drives our subsequent predictable herd-behavioural outcomes to “create human nature” (Orwell below) which we arrogantly, egotistically and hypocritically perceive to be of our own ‘free will’. In a word; ‘reality’.

Which again, if you viewed these events – this war – through a prism of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ and are alert to the Etonian ‘Kryptonite’ and their weakness for power-symbolism, which on one occasion was a desperate, cryptic cry for help by one time ‘journalist’ Boris Johnson which he again telegraphed hidden in plain view…

…then you’d have known too from my May 2019 piece Trump & Brexit: The Dark Triad Model for a Global Fascist Contagion’ (2019) that I ‘predicted’ the deployment of a biological agent long before the UK corporate media began ‘reporting’ it in February 2020; and which subsequently targeted its own supporters online to seed and foment divisions sustained along Trump/Brexit tribal lines, whilst indoctrinating the entire population via the corporate broadcast media with the surreal ‘Volksgemeinschaft’ happy-clappy ‘people’s community’ construct ripped from the Goebbels propaganda playbook; ‘V for Volksgemeinschaft: We’re All In It Together – Or Else!’ (2020).

As this COVID-specific prison planet plan to destabilise established ‘democracies’ and turn them into dictatorships began to falter at different stages around the world, I was convinced that in having failed to secure a specific nuclear trigger, that it was only a matter of time before it would fizzle out even more absurdly than it was engineered in the first place: The Trump-Putin-Brexit Coup: It’s All Over Bar The ‘Shouting’ (2020).

However that didn’t stop the US & UK elite cartel from trying again by instructing Israel to bomb Gaza in order to try and draw Iran into a war in April 2021 by ‘Going Nuclear: Gove & Netanyahu’s Endgame Gamble’ (2021) to coincide with further UK Government Home Office pretext to remove ‘illegal immigrants’ specifically from Glasgow in May 2021 as I’ve explained in ‘Glasgow, Israel & The India Variant: A Far Too Perfect Tyrannical Storm’ (2021).

Which was why when these too failed, the ‘Special Relationship’ then tried to take a reinvigorated route back through Afghanistan in August 2021 by manipulating emotions for a renewed war; ‘Why Afghan ‘Women’? Manufacturing Consent For All-Out War via ‘WMD’ (2021).

And so the contemporary, psychotic ‘Colonel Blimp’ cartel won’t let up trying to destroy humanity and eventually the planet, until we working masses collectively grow a pair to depose the absurd, anachronistic notion; that people born into wealth as a result of atrocities, of colonial-legacy bloodshed, bribery and blackmail, are somehow ‘genetically’ predisposed to make a better ‘class’ of candidate to run a country – or indeed to murder one.

UK Government baton-wielding boot-stomping militarisation is inevitable and as this actual reality sinks in – as opposed to the one spoon-fed by gaslighted feelings – so too will an actual revolution ensue, which ‘The Party’ had intended to trigger on their own ‘Op Fukuglaschu’ terms but which now will end them.

This is because this particular piece of ‘Pandora’s Box’ propaganda cannot be contained; ‘Early Warning Signs of Fascism: ‘The #MeToo Truth of Nr5 Rampant Sexism’ (2020)

…and as such the revolution is about to go global; Her Name Was Czeslawa Kwoka’ (2021).
