To take control of the Media as they have done is exactly how it was in Eastern Block County's and exactly why Britain went to war - for FREEDOM to speak and choose and self determination.
Exactly. Unfortunately we assumed we had defeated these forces at the end of the second world war, not realising that the underlying ideologies and the personality types prone to be taken in or used by them were still there, distributed more widely than just the countries directly involved in that war, and would regroup. Rightly and understandably, we talk a lot about wanting peace in the world but we need to talk more about freedom as well, otherwise the people who try to stop legitimate protest will exert an ever-tighter grip.

Edited because of misunderstanding of this thread: IT IS NOT ABOUT YOUR OPINION ON THE NHS REFORM. IT IS ABOUT THE WAY THE GOV HAS HANDLED A LEGAL PROTEST. PLEASE I DON'T WANT A DISCUSSION ON THE NHS!!!
Please respect that wish. Any further posts not related to the handling of the protest will be removed.
ETA: do not respond to this mod note
About 150-200 medical professionals and activists demonstrated against the NHS reforms in central London on Saturday.
"the proposal that there is an official media black-out on the story is, i think, unlikely"
"there were 23 NHS protests around the country yesterday".
