The media were deployed to tell the cretins what to think.
The law-breaking and lies of Partygate were played down. It was a trivial bit of birthday cake – there are far bigger issues with Ukraine and the Cost of Living.
The police were pressured to muddy the waters by investigating Starmer. This was built up to appear as if Starmer’s beer and curry at a working by-election meeting were the same as a series of planned parties with quizzes, party hats, booze in shopping trolleys and bring a bottle in Johnson’s house and back garden.
The police were pressured not to prosecute Johnson.
There was a secret meeting with Sue Gray to tailor the report.
The fact that Johnson had repeatedly lied about parties he had attended to the public and in the House was glossed over. It was just a bit of birthday cake. Starmer had done the same. He’d said sorry. Move on.
Lying to the House was downplayed as trivia.
They tried to big-up Johnson’s wonderful Ukraine contribution – lots of photo ops.
They hid from scrutiny as much as possible.
The Press kept up a stream of anti-Starmer, pro-Johnson propaganda.
The heat died down. Johnson is still there.
Meanwhile, they are stifling all opposition and removing all scrutiny – taking over the BBC and Channel 4, banning protest and pouring out propaganda through the Daily Express, The Daily Mail, the Telegraph, Sun and Times.
They want a world without scrutiny or accountability so that the population can be controlled and manipulated.
The media will run scare stories about the opposition. The failures and corruption of the Tories will be glossed over.
People will forget the law-breaking, nepotism, huge handouts to their chums, illegal donors, Russian connections, second salaries, Partygate, Lies, Brexit failure, Covid corruption, cash for secret meetings, cash for peerages, tens of thousands dead, tax rises, broken promises, Care lies, VAT hikes, benefit cuts, food banks, homelessness, cost of living crisis ………………………..
The Tories will be blameless.
Johnson, the most corrupt, sleazy, lying, incompetent Prime Minister we have ever had will tighten his grip.
It is becoming a lot like Russia.
