I used to subscribe to The Guardian. I did so after their work with Edward Snowden and Wikileaks. Then the Govt told the national press that mentioning Assange and his incarceration was a no-no. This absolutely happened because all mention of Assange disappeared. He became non-news. The foreign press would write, but no domestic.
Craig Murray wrote though. And he also covered, in detail, the recent trial of Alex Salmond. If you compared our national press reporting to what Craig reported you can see that the Press were conforming to an agreed narrative. They did not report what they could have done.
The Guardian, despite trumpeting their reporting prowess has been a puppet of the Govt. They have no more bite than a jelly baby. Hence I no longer subscribe and their site is certainly not whitelisted in all my adblocking measures (use https://nextdns.io to adblock on all devices, along with uMatrix and Block Origin).
Now though the Scottish Govt are after Craig himself. How much of this is being reported in the nation’s press? Nothing at all.
Boris Johnson thanks North for trusting Tories
and while you dumb Tory-voting knuckle-draggers go YAY about Brexit Boris Johnson will also continue to dismantle and privatise the NHS and he will continue the scourge that is Universal Credit so increasing poverty and homelessness, he will tax the less well-off while letting the rich do what they want.
The UK has been under the Tory power for nine – NINE – years and you think it’s going to get better?
If you think that …. you poor dumb idiot.
I don’t care if you voted tactically – YOU have given the most right-wing government in this country a blank page and said “Hey, do what you want!”
Boris the marriage cheat and his smarmy crew don’t give a flying fuck about real people.
But your Tory vote just gave him license to destroy so much.
