An article in the Financial Times by Martin Wolf about a hard brexit (viz-a-viz Theresa May) is but another example of ‘domicide’ (see preceding article).
For example yet again we are led to believe that all EU law is originated by the EU when patently, with a little research, this statement can easily be shown to be false.
People are reliant on all media to inform them of ‘news’ that may have an impact on their lives and consequently, especially when producing opinion pieces the media in all forms, have a duty to ensure that the information they produce is factually correct. Not withstanding that basic requirement, they also have a duty to check statements by politicians to ensure that those statements are correct, factually, rather than just reproducing them verbatim.
In this particular case all one can say is that, overlooking this journalist’s canine attributes, he most definitely has a big mouth.
Afterthought: Martin Wolf is the Chief Economics Commentator for the Financial Times – one can only suggest he goes back to school, preferably to the kindergarten class.
Only my opinion but any politician, or journalist. stating or publishing a provable ‘untruth’ should automatically be in receipt of a P45. But then, under representative democracy, we cannot do owt about that, can we?
