THE DISMAL MEDIA BECOMES EVEN MORE DISMAL

By Pete Moore On February 8th, 2013

There was me thinking the corporate media could really get much worse, that the propaganda couldnt be more plain. The Telegraph has become Downing Street’s hired hand for the day in the wake of the EU budget deal in Brussels.

“Cameron triumphs as European leaders agree on first-ever budget cut” splutters the main news piece, an intro to a gushing piece by Bruno Waterfield and James Kirkup.

The bloggers are in on the charade too. Ruth Dudly Edwards exhorts us all to “rejoice!”. According to Charles Crawford, the deal Cmaeron;s triumphant deal means that “the folly stops” with the reduction in the Brussels budget. Benedict Brogan kisses Cameron’s backside too, in a piece headlined “Thatcher, Major and now Cameron: standing up to the EU works”.

Gosh, that’s all great then. At long last PMs are standing up for Britons at the EU, eh? Except no. Like every Conservative Party Prime Minister since Traitor Heath, Cameron has stitched up the British people yet again.

You have to read way down the Waterfield/Kirkup piece to discover that we’re going to be paying even more into the Brussels pot, even with the budget reduction:

Officials have calculated that Britain’s payments could rise by £500 million as share (sic) of the budget going to newer member countries, such as Poland and Romania that joined the EU after 2004, increases.

British sources said that because the UK gets no rebate on spending in the new member states, a deal signed by Tony Blair in 2005, the UK’s net contribution is expected to drift upwards.

So there you go. That we’ll be looted even more heavily, according to The Telegraph, is a “great triumph” for Cameron. That’s how they lie to you.

  1. I don’t know how the dismal media on both sides of the ocean live with themselves.

    Speaking of media propaganda, from the rogue LA madman policeman’s manifesto. Clearly, this guy marinated in the Left wing media stew that permeates our culture. Do you think the Left Wing media will be implicated? If he was a Tea Party supporter, do you think the Tea Party would be implicated?

    Who in there right mind needs a fucking silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one. No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!

    Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”

  2. Pete,
    I have been listening to 5Live’s coverage of this today, and they were saying that actually our contribution will go up to help cover our rebate…!
    Deals have been done behind the scene. Appeasements have been made to dupe the UK and Dave “the Top” has been spinning away to make it all look good for him and us. It won’t wash.

    You know Pete, if you just described yourself as a freethinker instead of an Anarchist who doesn’t pay his tv licence fee, you would go up in my estimation. :)

  4. Agit8ed –

    I’ve told you, I’m more of a minarchist generally and an anarcho-capitalist in economic matters.

    If being a freethinker means making up your own mind based on what you see and hear, instead of clinging to positions which you’re supposed to take, or blindly accepting state propaganda, then that’s me alright.

  5. Cameron said that the UK’s contribution to the EU’s budget is going up but not as quickly as it would otherwise have done – he did say that. Anyone who supports that man is not merely a fool, but a traitor. That includes every single member of the Conservative Party.
