It has become obvious that those in the world of media know no more about Brexit than those entrusted to enact Brexit – much to the detriment of those who must rely on the efforts of those entrusted to deliver the edict of our current Prime Minister, namely Brexit means Brexit.
Almost daily we are assailed with hundreds of words – if not thousands – written and spoken by politicians, journalists, think tanks, etc, ie ‘bullshit’; all of which cannot withstand rebuttal, said rebuttal containing detailed facts which have been carefully researched. Yet it is also obvious that those who have done the necessary research and can thus rebut the aforementioned bullshit, when given the opportunity so to do by the media to find their input curtailed/truncated to the point of inconsequence.
I have often posed the question about whether politicians are in the pocket of the media, or whether the media are in the pocket of politicians – which, in fact, is an unanswerable question because both groups have built an ‘industry’, each dependent on the other for their existence.
Just how has it come about that those elected to represent the interests of those who elect them have built an ‘industry’ of self-preservation and advancement; and those who are supposed to inform the people of the truth have managed to do likewise, encompassing each constructing a two-way reliant ‘industry’? More importantly, how is it that the people have allowed each to continue?
The simple answer to the aforementioned question posed at the end of the preceding paragraph must be that the people are unaware of the power they possess, which is where the ideas of The Harrogate Agenda (THA) enter the equation – not that those now ‘running’ said idea seem to have considered this aspect.
As I have replied to Tony Day in the comments section of this article, after 1st October there will be developments – that I promise.
