Unfortunately it's an easy agenda to have, in a country becoming increasingly nationalistic in rhetoric thanks to the likes of UKIP.
You need to look at the quality of people who read this nonsense, the kind of people who read the tabloid trash in this country. They're generally
the more ignorant and simplistic, they'll spend entire hours of their day ranting to each other about the EU, other races, fanciful stories about
"straight bananas" and the "laws inflicted by Brussels" without ever actually bothering to educate themselves over any of it.
That's the breed of ignorant knee-jerk voter the tabloids pander to, the most idiotic people of this country, and it's the ones parties like UKIP
pander to also.
We also know that when economic trouble hits a society a government (and many of the people) attempt to find a target to attack, groups within it
attempt to capitalize on this blame game and pick out their favored enemy as a scapegoat. This has been done with incredible skill by the Tories who
attack the disenfranchised, the disabled, the lower paid, those already struggling. The Tories instantly began to attack the "welfare state", in
broad strokes which impacted upon millions of genuinely deserving people and placed all within the same unfair categorization.
It's distraction, but thankfully it's not working in the same way it used to. Back in the 70's and 80's it would have been far easier for a
government to divert attention away from them, with the support of a right-wing press, to create an enemy within that the ignorant people could focus
on. These days there are more and more groups of people standing up against it and pointing out the truth.
Just remember that for every "sinister brown Muslim" a tabloid prints on the cover of a paper, there's another two white "Christian" men guilty
of the same sickening crimes over more than a decade, unchallenged and unrepentant, in media, in government, the rich white, arrogant cnut who truly
believed that he had a "right" to do what he wanted with the "plebs".
Don't let them distract you from the massive abuses still being uncovered at the hands of politicians in this country.
