Whilst the story
is covered extensively in the Sunday press, along with analysis and thought
provoking questions, The UK TV media has effectively buried the news of the arrest,
and the ensuing political pressure, for perverting the course of justice, of Ruth Turner, a high ranking aide at
No.10 in the ongoing investigation into the Cash for Peerages scandal.
In what resembled
a Soviet style Party written agenda, with the scripting for the days news being
written by the government press office, the important news of the day was buried
in a mass of non-news.
The BBC has by far been the worst offender, not
running the story at all on its BBC1 news programme or the BBC News24, instead giving us non-stories, has now
lost its place as an unbias reporter of news that is part of its charter.
The break-up of
the Home Office – a non-story because this has specifically been rejected by
the Prime Minister 2 weeks ago in a reply to David Cameron in the House of
Commons. It also shows the Home Secretary as a loser, a man who cannot
cope. We expect that this story will be reversed after a reasonable time,
Other top BBC stories are The Duck who survived after
being shot and put in a freezer, and an anti Royal story, and the bones on
display of a whale that died in the Thames a year ago.
Sky News whilst
not letting its reporters mention it on screen, does at least have it running
on their top story bar, but still refuse to talk about it. They are also
running the non-stories to make up air time.
It is quite
obvious by this time that the Labour spin machine has been working overtime
during the night to ensure that this story gets no air-time, which also means
that their efforts to evade the course of justice have now moved behind the
scenes, and out of the public gaze.
We also wonder
whether they have used their powers illegally by invoking D-Notices on the
media to protect a party machine.
It is clear that
this government now believe this country to be a one party state, where the
media and the police can be ‘directed’ at will, with different standards to be
applied to party members and workers.
So used are they
to doing what they want, how they want, when they want that the contempt for
the rule of law when applied to themselves is apparent to all.
We await with
anticipation the next episode from ‘Yates of the Yard’, one which we hope will
give us all a clue as to the extent of the corruption within government and in
particular inside No.10.
5 below was clearly in operation today, and the world knows it.
The modus operandi of any fledgling
authoritarian state is;
- Create a fear, real or contrived.
- Engineer events to give credence to that fear.
- Find a portion of the population to blame for
- Enact laws to ‘protect’ the majority.
- Neuter the press.
- Further engineered events, keep up the scare
- Save the majority by containing, then detaining
the target group.
- Introduction of emergency powers and the
suspension of political and judicial process.
- Look for other groups to blame.
- Total control
