They call us the United Kingdom but if this election has exposed one thing its the fact that the United Kingdom is not united.
This is a fact that has been obvious to me for many years the United Kingdom is suffering a huge lack of unity. We blame each other for our current living standards and lack of opportunity. Social media and this election expose how divided the United Kingdom has become. This election was the young vs the old, the cities vs the country, the rich vs the poor, corporations vs the people and the media vs the Internet and it turned out to be a rare victory (if we count votes) for the young, the cities the poor and the people.
This has led to angry reaction from some media and people that “worry” Britain is now going to be flooded by immigrants, I believe if our military leave their countries they would be less desperate to come over to Britain. These people are still reacting to the fear mongering and blatant propaganda, lies and the smear campaign the British media have been putting out over the last few months.
The media felt no way in using the terror attacks in Manchester and London as a way to stir up hate, fear and tension but it didn’t seem to work with the majority people but when Jeremy Corbyn mentioned Tory cuts after the Grenfell Tower disaster he is accused of using the tragedy to gain political support. The media can say what they want I heard far darker theories as to what may have happened from residents interviewed and then censored from TV.
One of these residents informed the BBC that they have been trying to move them out for years, in his own words he said “I wouldn’t even be surprised if it wasn’t a accident.” The media make me laugh though some of the shit that they print but all of a sudden develop huge a sense of morales when they think they have a story. But they have no story and Jeremy Corby does have a point.
The media give us reason to hate and fight against each other and react so easily, they point their fingers at immigrants, welfare and now Jeremy Corbyn as people to blame and hate but this election has exposed the power of the media is dying and that can only be a good thing for they United Kingdom. Maybe upon the death of the media the people will unite against the common enemy the corporate controlled state.
We in Britain claim that we are democratic, we have the right to vote and freedom of choice or so they say! Our government criticize nations like North Korea for not giving people freedom of choice. They tell us that the North Korean government or corrupt, a dictatorship and they claim the North Korean government control all media, TV and employ strict Internet censorship and maybe they do, I don’t know I have never been to North Korea.
I do however live in Britain and everything they are telling us they North Korean government do our government do. The BBC for example are Blatantly Backing Conservatives, its like they are telling us you have a choice vote this strong and stable government or this clown that is going to destroy the economy and therefore your lives. Does that sound like a choice?
Not satisfied with controlling the mainstream media they also employ strict Internet censorship, they tell us it is to combat extremism but NOBODY I know is as extreme as the conservative government. People are dying and living in poverty while our government fund corporate tax evasion, war and nuclear weapon programs (as well as there own high wages topped up by their expenses.) They claim its all fake news and extremism but is it? Because when I read most of this “extremism” I believe I am reading real people speaking about real issues that effect them as individuals. They are simply excising the freedom of speech we don’t have because if they were really fighting against extremism they would be fighting the hate filled Daily Mail or the dumb as fuck Sun newspaper not the people.
What is the point in having the right to vote if half of the argument is censored and unheard?
I believe real freedom of choice comes from freedom to read and watch whatever you want to before making a decision, if the Conservative party are going to simply censor their own population how can people make a decision that represents the way they feel? They can’t.
Censorship is only ever employed due to the fact that the oppressor recognizes they can not win an argument so they silence their opposition. In the other words the Conservatives are not only relying on the corporate media to win this election they are also relying on the people they wage war against to remain silent and if we don’t remain silent they will attempt to silence us with censorship, as so many people in Britain are doing at the moment its time to make some noise.
