“British Public SLAM Media Over Fake News During Lockdown” (Mahyar Tousi)

This is quite apt and immediately relevant to me (thanks Mahyar), considering recent conversations I’ve had with commenters about things like “fake news” and most of the mainstream media’s reprehensible, sometimes malevolent behaviour – past, present and future (in US, UK and Australia) – who are on the way out by the way, permanently, unless they actually start doing real journalism again, as opposed to extremist political activism disguised as journalism.

Mainstream media – Either moderate yourselves, learn some ethics and lookup what “journalism” means or we’ll oversee your obsolescence, which Mayhar Tousi (and plenty of other people, channels and outlets) are already planning. Along with the current UK government in the case of the BBC and Channel4. Who knows maybe I’ll join in on the farewell party for the liars, spinners, manipulators, brainwashers, slanderers, defamers, fear-mongerers and cowards, wish them goodbye and good riddance – thanks for the new job/business, enjoy flipping burgers at McDonalds.

If you hadn’t figured it out by now – Social media and the internet over the last 10 years or so has ended the mainstream media’s stranglehold on what is true and what is not – So whilst there’s aspects of social media I don’t like, this is one of the BIGGEST the silver linings I’ve ever seen.

Sorry, got a bit carried away there … but I know for A FACT that I’m not the only one who feels this way, millions I’m sure have already woken up to this, leftists and rightists.

This update from Mayhar Tousi, from about 1 hour ago @ 14-Apr-2020 19:22 UK time.

I came across Mahyar Tousi’s channel a few months ago. He provides an informative populist discussion of (mostly UK) – current affairs, culture and politics, is well spoken, engaging and charismatic.

(Thanks Mayhar for your hard work)

Hope you and your loved ones are safe, and stays that way.

Cheers

Brexit beats the House of Lords – Jeff Taylor

A friend of the blog from Canada, said that they were interested in what’s happening in UK regarding Brexit. When initially searching for news last year (because I was fed up with Google recommending The Guardian and The BBC), I found that it was difficult to obtain the facts. So, have had to hunt around, a hunt which paid off, I’m now able to get up-to-date news, which isn’t propaganda or fake news.

So, I’m sharing this, as it’s current and Jeff Taylor (who’s probably more a centrist than anything else), reports factually (which can easily be confirmed via other reputable sources, like the video feeds from Parliament and House of Lords).

Basically, the UK Brexit withdraw law was passed in the Parliament last year. The House of Lords then have a chance to add amendments – which they did this week. It was then passed back to Parliament, and voted on, and all of their amendments where denied/ voted down.

From what I understand it has to go back to House of Lords again. It’s likely they will this time approve it, and not add any amendments. One of the reasons being is that they’ve made themselves unpopular already in the past and there’s talk of reform of the House of Lords (keeping one’s job springs to mind). Do we really need 800 people being paid at top tier salaries in the House of Lords – isn’t that a bit of a waste of money ?

Then next is that the law needs Royal ascent, which basically mean the Queen signing off on it – which will just happen, basically.

And, then lastly it needs to be approved by the Europe. If they don’t, then it’s a “hard Brexit” on 31-Jan-2020, ie UK leaves without a trade deal, on WTO terms. Which, from what I’ve been hearing may not be a disaster (as the scare mongers have prophesied), might actually be a better outcome for UK. It’s actually my preferred outcome, get this shitshow over and done with, and get on with sorting out UK’s real problems. But – Dunno, not an expert here regarding WTO vs Europe/UK trade agreement, and I don’t know anyone who is either.

If Europe do approve it, then UK still “leaves” Europe on 31-Jan-2020, but then there’s a Brexit implementation period (basically UK and Europe negotiating a trade deal), with final FULL leave date of 31-Dec-2020.

Most likely Europe will begrudgingly approve the law. So most likely UK will “leave” Europe on 31-Jan-2020, into the Brexit implementation period.

Or there, or there abouts, in somewhat layman’s terms. Sorry I’m not a journalist, or news blog, just putting the word out there. More I enjoy creative writing and opinions, than the hard stuff like serious journalism.

Jeff produces videos every day, and if Brexit is of interest to you, then might be worth following his channel.

I don’t know his political leaning intimately, but those that lean to the left, or are pro-Europe, or are a communist, well, he may not fit your confirmation bias. So might not be your cup of tea. Just saying …

Anyway – For me I’m a centrist, so am able to digest traditional real journalism/facts, and Jeff fulfills my inquisitiveness into what’s actually happening in politics in UK, especially regarding Brexit.

So for that, Thanks Jeff, and also Thanks for filling the void made by BBC, ITV, Channel 4, The Guardian, The Independent and the other one, forget the name, sorry about that. Should also say – thanks UK fakestream media for becoming irrelevant, and making space for new entrants, truly in this case it seems that “diversity is our strength” 🙂 Perhaps soon now I can stop paying for (on pain of a criminal record) a BBC service I don’t use, like or want, or think is relevant anymore.

Lastly, thanks to the 1000 or so new followers, over past couple of days – I don’t know where you came from (or why), but a heart felt welcome anyway. I don’t know if I can live up to your expectations, only time will tell that. A lot of the time I do photography, sometimes I write. A lot of the time I don’t blog at all.

Cheers
