A few gems from our rancid bought off media before Election Day. After the election debate ‘youguv’' released a poll which declared Cameron a clear winner; one of this morning’s papers exposes them as having set the poll up to talk to targeted people who fitted the Tory profile e.g. well off; home owners; well paid; residential areas; who would have thunk it? The Sun withdrew its financial offer to Mrs. Duffy because she refused to say she would swap her vote to the Tories. A poll was dropped when it came up with the result that over 50% of people in Rochdale regarded the Mrs. Duffy incident as a “storm in a teacup” A poll after the debate showed a huge support for Brown stating he had dominated Cameron and Clegg on the economy and plans for stability; analysis of the poll showed that the swell of support for Brown came mainly from Scots. The majority of those who fitted the Tory profile however from out with Scotland carried it for Cameron; Brown at the debate was using a crib sheet; so was Cameron and Clegg. Sky News chose to sneak behind Brown’s back and film it ignoring Cameron and Clegg doing the same; they turned this in to another attack on Brown.
Yesterday the media were sidelined by a huge gathering called by ‘Citizens UK’ Sky and the BBC and others were allowed to film it but not organise it they had no input nor did the press or radio; they were forced to show it without bias or any dirty anti Brown tricks; result? Had it been a fight the referee would have “thrown in the towel” to save the two novices Cameron and Clegg further punishment. Brown was for some reason released and on fire; he took the roof off making Cameron and Clegg look like 5th. formers at their first school debate; they literally trembled before his passion and anger and the crowd roared him on to a standing ovation at the end; there was no need to do an exit poll here and the corrupt media have been reduced to trying to keep it as quite as they can today. This is the media who label politicians as corrupt!
The only ones who can expose this fraud which dominates our media are the guilty ones; the media themselves and with very few exceptions that is not about to happen; this is Murdochism just like we had McCarthyism in America and a Tory victory will make it worse; the dirty digger has done a deal with the dirty Tories and he will demand his reward if the Tories win. Perhaps students of politics will; sometime in the future write papers about the manipulation of the election debates and the corrupt polling which produced the ludicrous result of Gordon Brown last in each one; the fact that so many people were willing to accept that farce rather than challenge the methods being used is very worrying indeed; it demonstrates the power that sleazy journalism has.
Everything Brown has done and said in the past 3 weeks has been met with an orchestrated and predetermined chorus of abuse insult and derision. He is still standing though and still fighting despite the onslaught of vicious media attacks. The British like to see themselves as a fair people and the treatment meted out to the Prime Minister might just backfire on his tormenters. Think of the malignant attack mounted by the ‘Sun’ who else? over the hand written letter he sent to the bereaved mother of a young soldier that backfired spectacularly on the gutter Murdoch journalists; most people accepted Brown’s sincerity and they were left looking like malevolent backbiting frauds. It could happen again in fact I detect that it has already started to happen as people say “hold on here this has gone far enough; time to look at policies and bin this vicious nonsense it is embarrassing the whole country”
For all the attacks on the PM a proper analysis shows them to be mainly counterfeit; Clegg and Cameron can mumble away inanely repeating their sound bites like ‘change’ and ‘old politics’ safe in the knowledge that the right wing press will damage the PM enough to avoid them having to take him on about policy; is this what the British voter really wants? Does it matter that he doesn’t have the social skills of his rivals; is his smile that important? Do you want a ‘Bob Monkhouse’ Prime Minister with a smile like a game show host; or someone who has genuine substance a man of honesty; drive and integrity who believes in fairness for all? It’s either one of two rich privileged silver spoon charlatans who will rule on behalf of the elite or a man who will fight for a fair deal for all no matter what background a person comes from? Remember the Tories past and remind anyone who is too young to remember; it has to be LABOUR and GORDON BROWN.
