The Jeremy Corbyn spy story/smear. Truth or Fiction, you decide! It's about discrediting the opposition, It aint sputnik science.... So what if there's a soviet skeleton in JC's cupboard, that was the past, meanwhile in the present the British government are happy to take the rouble from Russian oligarchs who are slowly buying up the country for their future. So whose the bigger threat to 'national security'? Socialism is about the social, Conservatism is about the con!

The hypnotised never lie. Fakery / Trickery / Tricksters and Jokers. Dangerous times, Dangerous minds. Smoke and mirrors The hypnotised cannot see. The truth police....Who watches the watchers? Fake news? Truth and censorship who decides what is true. Government power tyranny and totality. Who controls the media has the power to control the minds of the masses!
Madmen in Authority What's their problem with fake news? Or is the problem that the powers that we let be don't like what they hear or uncomfortable truths are revealed. As the sands of time pass they show there were different grains of truths to the stories we were told. For example
Piers Morgan, resigned as editor of Daily Mirror after the paper published a fake picture of troops torturing Afghan prisoners, at the time it was denounced as being made up news. A couple of years latter when the truth came out, it turns out that troops did carry out abuse and torture of prisoners.
Alternative facts and conspiracy theories ask questions when the mainstream answers are questionable. The truth is stranger than f(r)iction. I heard on the radio recently that there are proposals to set up a government department for fake news. I don't know if this is true or not, but the frightening thing is that I can see this happening in the not too distant future.
A Miss-information society, is being constructed in front of our eyes, a future reality where big lies can be disguised and dismissed as fake news, because nobody will know what is real or not. A virtual reality of tweets, postings and intsagram messages compete with the state sanctioned discourse of events, information overload.
We are not in a good place. The number of Suicides is rising, Crime is rising, homelessness is rising and the gap between the rich and poor is widening. So what does the Con-Government do....continues to cut numbers of police, builds unaffordable housing that is bought by foreign investors not to live in, all the while manipulating the statistics and using the private sector to do the jobs of the state, there by washing their hands of any responsibility for the outcomes when it all falls down, and then they blame the people and make them pay. Now is the time stand together, just like those who took to the streets of London a couple of weeks ago to protest about cuts in the NHS, not that anyone watching the BBC news that evening would have known it happened, because it wasn't reported. We are in this together, it's just that they don't want us to know it, because if differences were put aside people would find they had much more in common than they had been led to believe they had. A real United Kingdom is something that those in power do not want, because it would mean they would be out of a job and in the hands of the people.... and that's the truth of the matter.
....“Capitalism's media triumph conceals the truth that it has never been more fragile, threatened, catastrophic. Something else has surpassed both the Marxism figure-headed by a totalitarian Soviet bloc and it's liberal free market opponent. This 'something' is a set of hypereality transformations in the spheres of science, technology and economics which put our traditional notions of 'democracy' in grave doubt.”

Anti-Social Media is the debut album from the south coast of England's premier punk rockers.... The Mistakes from Poole in Dorset, and it goes a bit like this....It's a twelve track treat; An old skool new skool punk rock breakout that brings the past to the present and takes it into the future, think....UK Subs, Subhumans and Rancid, and then some! Power chords, pounding drums, luscious guitar licks and meandering bass lines bleed from the speakers. It's a 100mph charge; fast, frantic and furious laced with twists of Ska; thrashy and tuneful with catchy choruses, it's toe tapping, head banging and fist thumping stuff.... and it will blow your ears off! These are powerful and passionate songs, they are address's to a nation in distress, a hollering voice of hope and dissent, anthems for the underdogs that refuse to quit in an age of austerity, anxiety, alienation and anger. A slab of skanking socially aware rabble rousing street punk which comes straight from the heart, kicks you in the guts, leaves a smile on yer face and makes yer brain think. What more could you ask from an Album/CD/Download? Anti-Social Media is out now on Never BeQuiet Records. and the band can be found here on facebook. You'd be making a big mistake if you didn't check 'em out!
