Politics

In amongst the drive for an independent Scotland, as well as the mounting propaganda calling for war, the mainstream media has continued to nudge us towards a 'Brave New 1984'. In this weeks 'Weekly Nudge' we will be considering cashless payments and their wider implication.
In this weekly blog I will be taking a look at those articles that are written or edited in a way that encourages the reader to develop a bias towards, or against, the subject of the article. This technique is most commonly referred to as 'nudging'. In some cases the desired result is obvious, however sometimes the objective is hidden behind a tapestry of entertaining, or controversial, literature.
Scotland Ballot Box
Today the LibLabCon has joined forces to keep the Union together, they say. Very publicly “abandoning” Prime Ministers Questions in order to give the maximum impression that they actually wish to keep the Union together, all three have flown up to Scotland to campaign for a “NO” vote.
Pan Am Flight 103, 21 December 1988. Lockerbie bombing Boeing 747–121, Clipper Maid of the Seas, Pan American World Airways, N739PA
On the 20th May 2012 the only person ever convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, died of cancer in Libya. Examination of contemporary events at the time of the bombing, the manner in which subsequent investigations were pursued, and the way in which the eventual trial (in 2000) of defendants Abdelbaset Al Megrahi and Al Amin Khalifa Fhimah was handled, leads (ultimately) to some highly disturbing insights into the deceits that lie at the heart of “regime change”, and of “the war on global terrorism”.

Leveson_CP_StateControl_of_Press
David Cameron declares his interests with Common Purpose. Suddenly the press and media realise that he was part of the same Common Purpose that created the Leveson Inquiry. It was an oversight? No State Control of the Press is by appointment....
Something is subtly messing with our views, values and morality. We are 'going forward' but the direction is being controlled by others...

We are apparently one day away from a decision by the Privy Council on a Royal Charter to 'moderate the press'.
