The MSM just don't get it
McPoison accuses Guido of having Tory backers - it just shows that they just don’t get it - this blog was started for free, with no committee behind it, no plan, on a whim. It is Guido’s plaything. The Tories are rightly wary of Guido and incidentally they have a PR problem tomorrow - the last thing they want are half truths mixed with smears getting out into the open uncontrollably.
Paul Staines aka Guido Fawkes
I have just watched the SKY report on this story at midnight, the political reporter (name unknown ?? but ghastly dress sense) was whinging that the MSM have strict rules that meant they could not break this story. Wrong, for too long the fourth estate has been part of the problem with our democracy. The BBC is virtually under the thumb of the Government, the dead tree press sucking up to ministers press handlers, means they are equally part of the State apparatus.
The sheer bloody Public anger over immigration, corruption, MP's wallowing in the trough is not getting through, the surveillance society, the abuse of our childrens lives through poor education is not getting through. The wanton theft of our savings,pensions and earnings by the State is not getting through.
This weekend marks the breakthrough of the Political blog as the independent fifth Estate, that means we will all come under attack- Left,Right,Centre, Libertarian, UKIP, BNP, with calls from the MSM, Government and the next Tory Government, to bring this medium 'under control'.
We have to preserve this Liberty to say what we want, for Government to be fearful of the People, NOT the People fearful of the Government.
Well Done Paul, and to a lesser extent Iain Dale for exposing the real mendacity of the political system we have live under.
Tonight is a night to raise a glass, but not to drop our guard.
OH UPDATE: The Old Holborn blog has not cost me nor anybody else one single penny. Order-Order has not cost Guido one penny. Labourlist cost the members of Unite £100,000. (Derek Draper is currently in the Canary Islands, on "holiday")
USE YOUR VOICE . Start your own blog. If Guido can do it, we can ALL do it. 60,000,000 voices against 646. USE IT. Tell THEM what you are thinking, not the other way around.
