So recently a viewer of my Bitchute video said to me:

Now until this remark, this very week, I was unaware of this relative of mine. I don’t agree with all of CaptainKDH’s remarks and assessment of Kerr, but it was disappointing to learn that Kerr was clearly – even says it in Wikipedia, a flaming flaming flaming homosexual. However I see that what Titanically overshadows this character flaw is Kerr’s juggernaut career: The guy knew Stalin! Not to mention Winston Churchill and so many other heavy hitters of World history around WW2! Here is a Wikipedia excerpt, including a alleged quote from Churchill to Kerr:

He was moved to Moscow in February 1942, where he forged a remarkable relationship with Stalin and facilitated a number of Anglo-Soviet diplomatic conferences. His work there and at the Big Three Conferences (such as Yalta and Potsdam) put him at the centre of international politics during the final pivotal years of the Second World War. Throughout his posting in Moscow, he unsuccessfully sought clearer direction from the Foreign Office in London. He often fell back upon a directive received from Churchill in February 1943: “You want a directive? All right. I don’t mind kissing Stalin’s bum, but I’m damned if I’ll lick his arse!”

How am I related to Kerr? He was a descendant of Sir John and I am also a descendant of Sir John. I am not a descendant of Kerr, but I am related to Kerr and that is all well and good. I’m pleased to see these pictures of Kerr at some high power WW2 meetings such as Tehran 1943, and Yalta 1945, as well as Chiang Kai-Shek in the 1930’s China.
