I Imagine those who would wish to scare us, like to report all of the bad news about what’s happening in UK regarding business and jobs, and etc – this disaster and that problem. Whilst it’s important to let people know about news that may effect them. It’s manipulative just to report on things that have negative impact, especially when there’s a partisan motivation behind it. There’s a name for that “propaganda”, which isn’t journalism, and some of the outlets have upped their game to the next notch of purely producing purely “partisan rhetoric”
For past-me, I just went to the news to find out the facts, keep myself abreast of current affairs. These days mainstream media continuously seems to be trying to brainwash me, in ways I know are fundamentally harmful – divisive, manipulative, exaggerated and often not even factual.
It’s why, these days I look around for my news sources, and have discarded outlets who (perhaps) were once journalist, the likes of The Gaurdian, BBC and CNN, it’s long list. For the time being, real news seems to have scattered and involves a little effort to find, as it’s been obfuscated by those who wish us to be brainwashed. It’s actually quite refreshing, in a way, as I’ve not got access to a wide range of voices and can make up my own mind.
Overall I think there’s a real opportunity out there for new media outlets to become established, and also things like indie-TV and Cinema – Exciting times when mainstream media and Hollywood are rotten to the core, and are no longer serving their intended purposes – massive opportunities there for those who’re riding the next wave.
Anyway, enough of me sounding off – some POSITIVE post-Brexit news – from Reuters :
“A thousand EU financial firms plan to open UK offices after Brexit”
Which I was made aware of by Jeff Taylor :
For those who like summaries, rather than reading and watching :
LONDON (Reuters) – More than a thousand banks, asset managers, payments companies and insurers in the European Union plan to open offices in post-Brexit Britain so they can continue serving UK clients, regulatory consultancy Bovill said on Monday.
This would make sense to me that smart money would have been holding off on investing in UK during times of uncertainty. As Brexit is starting to draw to a close, I hope we’ll see this actually happening and prosperity actually returning to UK.
Even though I was originally pro-remain regarding Brexit, I’m looking into 2020 with optimistic outlook – I think the UK can become great again.
