I think its more than clear that the main focus from all parties, and MSM outlets is towards the "woke" generation.It would appear that the UK has finally lost the plot. We are a couple of days away from a GE and everyone is talking about Twitter accounts, fake news and which party tells the least amount of lies!
Does anyone have any idea on policy?
And as we are supposed to be a military themed website, has anyone heard any mention of a defence policy from any of the main parties? I know the SNP want to scrap Trident, but that's about it.
No you’re not. This is what you wrote:I'm trying to explain in words that you probably understand that the BBC is a state funded MSM organ. The state controlled bit was in reference to NK.
The broadcast media is heavily staffed by twentysomething and gender wise closer to a 50/50 split and so to be fair they reflect those demographics pretty accurately.. The written media is a wider grouping, but is catching up quickly, as they also go for the lower paid youth.I think its more than clear that the main focus from all parties, and MSM outlets is towards the "woke" generation.
One wonders if the media et alia have spent too long breathing in their own farts though, relying on social media echo-chambers to judge opinion and - form policy. I'm minded of the fragrant Emily of BBC, when it became apparent Trup was winning and Clinton wasn't - and the BBC live feed resorted to posting whatever emojis decrying Trump were 'trending' - fighting back tears: "How could we have got it so wrong?"
Would you say the Labour Party has shifted further left after the Blair and Brown years?
The hard left have always realised that they can never come to power under their true colours - look at the derisory vote the Socialist Workers Party gets in General elections; it doesn't even stand under its own name. So it relies on entryism to seize the levers of power in the Labour party. The Militant Tendency (aka Militant) did it in Liverpool in the 70's. As did the hard left in the Greater London Council in the 80's - deposing a moderate leader and installing Ken Livingstone.I think the leadership has, however many of the members (excluding the momentum lunatics) have remained where they always were - sadly a lot of these are (literally) a dying breed.
A strong opposition is important to create a strong government, in my mind. Labour currently seem to be full of shrieking socialists, who overrule any of the more moderate voices.
Fortunately Momentum have gone full retard. Had they put together a more moderate manifesto with the intent of binning it as soon as they came to power, the result of the impending GE would have been in serious doubt....the GLC election of May 1981 led to Labour gaining power, with McIntosh installed as Head of the GLC; within 24 hours he was deposed by members of his own party, and replaced by Livingstone.
