I have been trying to keep up with all the government propaganda surrounding the forthcoming EU Referendum, but this week’s Pinocchio Award must go to the chief executive of NHS England on the Andrew Marr Show.
He spent the entire interview attempting to portray that NHS finances would be in dire straights upon Brexit, as the value of the pound would crash and imported drugs would cost more. Marr even produced a graph showing the ever increasing deficit, yet not once did he mention the crippling PFI contracts signed up to under Gordon Brown.
Perhaps the only qualification required to become a top television news and current affairs presenter is a masters degree in intellectual dishonesty, although I must say Andrew Neil does try hard to be impartial. The B List politics presenters are the worst, particularly the Asian guy who presents Politics North West, whilst skypapers and bbcpapers are running low on top print media commentators prepared to lie through their back teeth.
Much made of DIY Recession for a year on Brexit, and how food and clothing prices will increase, even if its only imported from the EU stuff like salad. In any case we are now told that you should eat proper food like full fat dairy products and red meat to avoid obesity, and have the health-fascists been telling porkies all along ?
All the Ten Bob Fat Cats are petrified at the prospect of higher interest rates, which the Bank of England will have to raise if Wall Street get nervous. However, tax receipts will actually rise with higher interest rates, so no problem funding our NHS and other public services. Of course if interest rates go up the stock market will implode, which in turn could render the Banks technically insolvent even if falling property prices don’t bust over leveraged Buy to Let landlords and corporate property speculators first !
Ian Duncan Smith was accurate to point out that the EU almost exclusively benefits the ” Haves ” and penalises the ” Have Nots “. If we do Vote leave and Brexit it will expose all the WAGS with fur coats on credit cards but no knickers, I hate to envisage the male equivalent, ( perhaps apprentice Jeremy Clarksons ) Gay or the transgender version.
The EU referendum on June 23rd offers the British people the unique opportunity to knock the entire Wall Street Merchant Banker inspired ( Neo-Liberal = Corporate-Nazi ) 99% debt slaves for the luxury of the 1% project in the head via a humane killer called DEMOCRACY !
