BBC says RT accounts frozen

Well, I think this speaks for itself.


The UK has frozen all bank accounts owned by Russia's state-run broadcaster, Russia Today (RT), its editor-in-chief has claimed. Margarita Simonyan tweeted: "They've closed our accounts in Britain. All our accounts. 'The decision is not subject to review.' Praise be to freedom of speech!" RT has previously been sanctioned by Ofcom for biased reporting on the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.




EDIT: I was watching a live periscope stream, and the guy was actually talking to an RT reporter, just right now...

We are at war, and it hasn't been declared yet, but we are.

Agreed, we are.

It was the same thing with the first and second world wars, the starting time of both wasn't fully understood until after the fact.

Hindsight is 20/20.

This one will be no different.




I just want off this damn war-mongering rock.... I'm tired of being forced to continue swinging in the trees with the rest of the armpit-scratching apes.

I want to go somewhere where unicorns roam free, rainbow Skittles flow like rivers of bliss, and birdies chirp to the sound of harmonious songs of joy and celebration.

This isn't a freedom of speech thing this has to do with a judgement against Russia for 50 billion. The Kremlin said they won't pay it so RT being a state run agency they froze there assets. They were supposed to work out a deal for payment. For those that don't know Youkos and his share holders sued the Russian federation in international court. This has to do with Putins orders to sieze his oil company and making it a state asset. Putin claimed it was do to taxes at thr time however in court they showed they payed there taxes. And claimed this was just a money grab by the Russian federation because he fell out of favor with Putin. I honestly thought the investors and him would never see a dime of the money they invested into the Russian oil company.Wonder now if Putin thinks nationalizing it was a good idea??

In the past I would have said that cooler heads will prevail, but I can not, for the life of me, think of a cool head to come to our rescue this time.

Aliens then? Perhaps they can bring the skittles and unicorns too.

Thanks for the info, it is appreciated.

The synchronicity of this is astounding and I personally don't believe that the reason is for the money. The excuse, maybe...

for everyone... NOTE THE TIMING.

The offensive in Mosul started last night ( during a special full moon ).
Assange cut of the internet. ( contingency plan wink wink nudge nudge )
RT accounts blocked.
Kerry in London.

Somehow this is all connected.

Synchronicity of what? Because a number of Foreign secretaries have been holding a conference on the Syrian situation in London? So what?

Exactly.




This situation is yet another useful notch on the military industrial complex's belt to justify their all-time favourite end game to play... war.

It's a media company. What are they going to do, sell the office furniture? It's worth practically nothing if they shut it down, maybe just the building if they don't rent, and operating cash and physical assets.

This is prelude to war scale stuff today.

Right now if I was the finance director at RT London I would be calling other high street banks or building societies in the U.K. to see if they would be happy to do business/banking with me , that alone will clarify if this is a blanket blocking motivated by politics.

Wonder if we'll start seeing diplomats expelled in the near future...that got very tit for tat last time around and tedious.
