notes from monday to come, but from tues night:

 

 

 

it has become obvious that cameron and milliband are fully supporting News Corp, Murdoch's vehicle. Here's a 'mental exercise' - imagine that they ARE supporting murdoch, they not only wish to bid to go through successfully, they also intend to sell off the BBC as well. Just as a mental exercise.

 

now, look at events again. First, murdoch puts a bid in, the Condemn(ed) put Jeremy Hunt in charge, WHO IT COULD NOT BE CLEARER was ordered to put this through, but look as though he was reluctant about it.

 

The scandal hits again - (you remember, the one where the Prime Minister knowingly employs a senior Murdochrat associated with **blackmail potential** phone-hacking.) - and the Govt is FORCED by Public pressure to re-examine the case. Cable has referred the matter for 'monopoly considerations', and Murdoch laughably offers to take his grubby paws off Sky News - for 5/6 years. Because in 5/6 years we the Public will have all forgotten this, and News KKKorporation can continue its plan of total control of UK media. This is an organisation that for years has bribed police and officials, has used (as is now being reported) blackmail, has turned the UK press into a syphilis infected swamp, been a central plank in "the war on Islam", and corrupted UK political life almost from top to bottom. Certainly the *top*, anyway.

 

so what is happening now? Murdoch's puppets, cameron and milliband (who you might remember were quite willing to attack rebekah, but **NOT** a Murdoch directly), are STILL HOPING MURDOCH WILL REMAIN IN BSKYB, which is why they are advising News Corp to drop the current bid. Because it is becoming clear, even to brain-dead murdoch readers, that THIS IS NOT A FIT AND PROPER ORGANISATION TO RUN ***ANY*** OF THE UK'S MEDIA!!!!!!

 

what should be happening, in any sane democracy, would be Offcom deciding News-KKKorp should sell its current holdings of BSkyB.

 

instead, 'they' are hoping that two things will have happened, by the time this Inquiry ends (or even begins):

 

1. I'm/angered celebs/cross politicians are no longer around.

2. the Public have forgotten.

 

a very interesting part of all this for observers, is watching how the KKKorporates control emotional energy through the media. The 'sacrifice' of the NotW, the intended 'sacrifice' of rebekah, and the proposed 'sacrifice' of the other 3 papers are all to give the impression to the Public that "something has been done, now go back to sleep".

 

News KKKorporation owns and controls FauxNews, and this is a prime example of the quality of its message - imagine ANY NN presenter behaving like this? This is the future of reporting our kids will grow up in if News KKKorp continues to hold the shares in BSkyB:

oh, one other point to make on this: that News KKKorp executive claiming "murdoch is gone" - very simple, if he is still in his job next week, AND murdoch is still there as well, then his whole presentation was a kkkorporate snow-job, intended to, once again, "shut the Public up".

 

these people are vile, and they do NOT deserve to control, or own, ANY of the UKs media. It is utterly disgraceful our 'political leaders' are attempting to help this company, and to ignore Public opinion. But then, that goes with just about everything they do. Worth remembering that, when they preach platitudes on TV.

 

 

ps, annoying as it may be for readers to have these posts scattered around, its even more annoying having to try to edit them to get them published - often takes longer than the writing itself.

the later post, same BBC blog, after the program Newsnight to which it refers. There might be much of note later in it to readers across the world:

00:10am on 14 Jul 2011

harriet harmen was correct: people have lost faith with big institutions. Here's a terrible thought: perhaps that was what was intended by some of those who thought up the original policies!!

 

the solution is a clean-up, it might have pained you at the time, but it is because MPs went through already that people even trust them slightly on the Press and Police. I'm more referring to backbenchers, normal MPs, rather than the ministerial rank, and of both main parties. I think people generally trusted the Lib-Dems more on these matters anyway, disregarding recent leaders.

 

simon hughes: now(!) we hear about the nobbling against those who wanted an Inquiry in 2003!!

 

Neither labour nor tories put the Judicial inquiry in place when they have been in power, it is only now the Public are partly in power that they have been forced to do so. But the Public could only put on the pressure when they knew about what was happening!

 

 

THIS is the tremendous power of the Press, right there! In liberal theory, it is the communication to the Public what is happening, so they can make informed decisions come Polling time. When that information is deliberately distorted, it prevents this flow of accurate information. Even worse, when there is a threat to blackmail individual policy-makers due to information gathered secretly, or illegally by the press, policies can be changed or made without even the vaguest knowledge of the Public, in favour of those *or their desired policies) who own the media platforms! The Press, and free-flow of information, are ***VITAL*** in a Democracy. If the Press are owned by a few "media-barons", then information is easily buried or even distorted, just as if it was the State owning all the Press.

 

a thought: if we'd had a decent Press, then the Internet would not have taken off as a source of information. It was the KKKorporate blockage (just as if it was State monopoly) *ITSELF* causing evolution/honest reporting to flow around them. Nature/God/GAIA is like that, ...smart huh? ;D

 

 

 

so, the press: it will be vastly harder to prevent/discuss the "cuts" program if the press can use potentially illegally-gained blackmail, - and how can there possibly be a quality debate when the press and news are being deliberately used to undermine honest, decent discussion about the issues? Remember how the "AV" Campaign was fought, the dirty tricks? This is how, with the collusion of certain elements of the Press, issues the Public deserve a good discussion on are turned into slig-fodder by members of the Tabloid Elite.

 

 

lovely tory woman, again agreed with her on a lot (*will* remember her name sometime! :sl: ) but she forgets that it is extremely difficult to have a good debate about cuts, Europe and the economy, and have the tabloids/Press joining in in an adult manner. So yes, those issues are important, but the platform upon which those discussions are held is also important. So this issue of phone-hacking, potential blackmail and Press-pressure, and even the Police involvement at the highest levels, are all ALSO important to the Public.

 

i think People are realising that accurate information about the World and what is actually happening, is very important. I don't think the People will have forgotten this next week, because every ##, histrionic scare-story to take their minds off what *is* important will remind them of it.

------------------

 

for global readers, in many parts of the World, remember that the UK is supposed to have a "free press", largely because it is owned by private corporations, instead of the State/Church.

 

this is a false idea, a Free Press is more like the forums upon the Internet, without central/corporate control.

 

this is why the Arab Spring gained shape - the communication between equals, who had a stake in being honest. The same is true of what is happening in Europe, even if it seems more economic to most non-westerners. Information is spreading, becoming more equal, and it is liberating, slowly, individuals and groups across the entire World.

 

and about time, too.

 

 

best of luck, all my friends, the struggle goes on.

 

peace and love, N. xxx

from the same blog page, there is more here than just BSkyB:

OFFCOM!!!! ***NOT**** "monopolies commission". *That* is why they have pulled the offer to "hands-off Sky News"!!

 

offcom to check the "fit and proper" ownership of the current BSkyB shares. It is disgraceful the Govt could allow this deal to hang around, - unless they WANT him to own the rest of the company, the most important media platform in the UK?

 

(they do, it became clear last night)

 

 

the police are worried about the use of blackmail by murdoch's empire.

 

there are many movies where the mafia threaten witnesses. Makes you think, doesn't it?

 

 

southern cross: the Govt should blanket-renegotiate the contract with the SC/landowners, it is unconscionable that this Govt can STILL be moving ahead with "bringing private providers in social services", when it is becoming abundantly clear that even many CURRENT privatised services are been run corruptly, for the benefit of share-holders and not the Public they are meant to serve. Now it is possible the tax-payer will have to pick up the multi-£m tab for these care-homes, eventually, but it goes without saying the incredible profits will remain with those who stole them.

Norway, they need investment, to create jobs. You have an investment fund that needs a new direction (what with the shares/financial system going 'pop'), could there be a match-up? Form locally-owned cooperative structures, and transfer as much tech as needed? Such an investment would completely complement Norway's own Geo-Thermal sustainable energy production, as well. Plus the long-distance transmission lines will also benefit Norway itself in the long-run.

 

 

world cup: that interviewed Qatari [bleep] knows full well that they intend to use the image of drunk rowdy Westerners, to shock their people at 'our' behaviour. This was a catastrophic decision, fed by overt corruption. The amusing thing is how it is all unravelling, it will be even more amusing if it rebounds on the Quatari elite, and the event becomes the rallying cry for freedom amongst the Qatari public. Even though they WILL find Western Football Fan behaviour incomprehensible.

 

funny watching a clever liar from another country when you can see through it isn't it?? :sl: It'll get even more amusing when he has to start defending the clear incompatibility of the forces he is trying to bring together - for his own ends.

 

if it DOES kick off (pun wasn't intended) in Qatar, i fully expect to see a repeat of Saddam's Tariq Aziz/Assad's "assurances" all events in Syria are caused by "foreign instigators"/camoron blaming student/union activism rather than the Qatari elite's own failed policies.

 

 

BSkyB again:

 

coulson's employe, cameron, has possibly help murdoch kick the bid into the log grass!

unfortunately for Murdoch, the ability for pubs to watch streaming football from the Net (judges found that legal, recently), instead of paying from Sky, will cause the share-price to do something as well. It is somewhat clear that NewsCorp is NOT a "fit and proper" broadcaster", and it cannot be overstated how much better the behaviour of the BBC. The shares in Sky owned by NewsCorp should be removed by Ofcom (BECAUSE murdoch might very well remain in his post after all, or his son), by the regulator, and then the Govt should step in and purchase the shares when it is low, and give them to the BBC.

 

the BBC would benefit greatly from having an ISP platform, and could even start to reduce its need upon the Licence-fee. A far better purchase by the UK Govt than the Bank-Shares Bail-Out.

 

News-Int is part of fox - the right-wing media group that runs Fauxnews, the pro-war "news" service. Still a group you want running the UKs strategic inofrmation highway? Btw, every email you sent via Sky broadband is potentially being tapped and read. Or do you think News-KKKorp and Murdoch care about your rights to privacy? Its time and past to get rid of them entirely. Shame we have News-KKKorp employees working in Downing St, and no, i'm not talking about Coulson.

 

 

excellent report by Peston! Again!! ;-D

Ai Weiwei: China, if you imprison those who criticise you, you will end up creating the very revolution you fear. And "counter-revolutionary" simply doesn't wash anymore, stop behaving like an infant. Start treating your People as the adults you want them to be. Free, Liberated, Questioning, Self-Motivated. It is not questioning and critical citizens you should be careful of, it is those driven by money who strip and exploit the rights of others, and ultimately corrupt a society from within. Whilst there are now many such in the ranks of the CCP, hopefully you are not *entirely* corrupted.

 

let your artists go, in every way you only harm yourselves by imprisoning them. And that will eventually harm China itself.
