[THIS MAY LOOK BORING BUT PLZ READ ITS IMPORTANT]
(at least if you’re in the uk)
For those not aware, Scotland has recently been going under a Referendum Debate, on whether or not we would like to be an independent country. The vote turned out to be 45% yes and 55% no, meaning we will carry on as a part of the UK. This has not gone down well and riots have broken out in Glasgow, Dundee and other parts of Scotland.
While this has been going on, being quite a large distraction from other news, Westminster, the UK Parliament in London, has passed a ‘Gagging Order’. This means that while there is an election underway in the UK, no one can say a bad word about the current ruling party at that time. Basically, not one person can voice their opinion via social network or be caught speaking down about the Government. How very democratic. (http://rt.com/uk/189112-gagging-act-uk-undemocratic/)
And a word of advice to those in the UK, particularly Scotland, take a good look at other news channels outside of the UK and see an outsider’s view. A good source, I find, is Russia Today, as linked above. Tending to give impartial views, especially on recent UK politics.
Countries like Russia, North Korea, China and Syria have been demonized and deemed unfit in their views, but taking a good look into their news channels reveals a great amount of common sense, which our news rarely gets. Although many people may have turned off by now but I urge you to at least take a quick look and possibly see a little bit of truth.
The BBC are paid through every UK citizens TV tax to be impartial (unbiased). Which I’m sure most can agree, they are not. It is infuriating that the BBC and the British Government can get away with all of this. Please share.
