Most reporting in the UK is owned by the right wing. Seems member of this thread have bought their shit willingly. I'm not saying reading the Guardian is the answer either. We have no truly neutral media left in the UK.

Even the "left leaning BBC" is a merry go round of Tory party ex ministers, think tank members, publicists for the Tory party etc. Robert Preston is a great example, when the finance world collapsed in 2008 and QE was given out by the billions from taxpayers pockets there was little descent from the BBC. It's not left leaning it's just not following the Tory party propaganda line.

This is the goal to destroy the last standing neutral news media to allow the 1% to broadcast their "newsspeak."

In the last 30 years there has been a collective effort to destroy the rights of working people in the UK along with public services based on crackpot ideologies and shift the Overton window to the right.

It's been very successful for the right wing think tanks. Hey lets reduce all taxes and destroy public services, then sell them to our friends. All built on cheap credit and fake feelings of wealth for the general population, which we know in reality does not exist.

Eventually this will rebalance to the left it has to. When the majority of the UK population realise those in power are using smoke and mirrors to keep them from their rights as taxpayers. When they are fed up in visiting the food banks, watching public services destroyed, paying their energy bills or having their pensions plundered. The greed of these crackpots knows no boundaries and ultimately that will cause it to fail.

2M people marched against war in Iraq, how the hell did they get away with it?

In my mind New labour = Tory light (thanks for PFI too, even Thatcher wouldn't have gone for that!)

Corbyn IS on the right path (hes pissing many off) and he should be MORE radical. People want their country back and I unfortunately don't think he has the balls (not Ed) to carry it through.
"2M people marched against war in Iraq, how the hell did they get away with it? " In a country of ca. 60M; peanuts!

"Eventually this will rebalance to the left it has to."

To quote a phrase often attributed to Maggie Thatcher "“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”
