Have decided to boost my larder with extra dried stuff (well stocked with canned) after the weekends scareganda in the media so I can last six weeks without having to fight the local retards in the supermarket for basics.
Have also added some bagged popcorn to the list as comfort food while I watch the mayhem of the fuckwitts.
Foreign powers revealed to be using social media to subvert UK democracy - BREXIT, Corbyn, Scottish Independence.By The Masked Tulip
This story was quietly released over the Bank holiday weekend and has got next to no mainstream UK Press coverage - mainly because it goes against the apparent agenda and highlights what naive, gullible fools lots of UK media folk are.
I think this is pretty major.
It is basically Facebook admitting, by closing down some 600 plus pages, groups and accounts, that a foreign power, in this case Iran, has been using social media to influence opininion on several matters key to the unity and security of the UK - namely BREXIT, Scottish Independence and with positive media for one Jeremy Corbyn. Israel, and UK opinion of Israel, is also mentioned but you have to wonder whether this also includes the big rise of anti-semitism on UK social media.
Not a dicky bird from the UK mainstream media about this. If it had been, for example, pro-Trump stuff then you can imagine the hysteria.
But this is OUR country and this suggests that a foreign power, Iran, was interfering in our internal politics.
So why no mainstream coverage?
Why aren't the likes of the So-Called BBC, Sky News, etc, screaming hell about this? Why aren't our politicians? Are any of them even aware that this happened?
Well, our mainstream media seems to focus on breaking up the UK as a good thing. It is also, IMPO, increasingly pro muslim and anti-Israel/Jewish people. No need to say anything about BREXIT. Then there is Corbyn.
Does this Facebook story simply highlight something much bigger going on in the UK with how public opinion is shaped and presented? I suspect it does.
Look at the almost hourly row in the US about possible Russian use of social media to influence the last US election. Then consider how this story about the UK got pushed out on a wet bank holiday weekend, was given virtually no coverage and then was buried.
Facebook Shuts Down Iran-Linked Pages Attacking Brexit and Israel, Backing Corbyn and Scottish Separatists
This is a huge story. It should have had massive coverage. You have to ask yourselves why not.

Though did stick it out for the day:
Now with the honourable exception of @Sgt Hartman I am sure we would all struggle at that; though could also mostly manage one day. Followed by a week in bed with the heating on.
It attracts migrant workers, who can earn £800 a week in high season, because it is the equivalent for them of a very well paid job back home which enables them to buy a decent house in their own countries. For a Brit it will just about cover their rent but lead nowhere; certainly not to owning their own home.
Despite the lazy Brit / boo to Brexit undercurrents of the article the simple answer is that this work will continue to be carried out by migrant workers but under the migrant workers' permits that existed pre 1972 for just this purpose rather than through EU freedom of movement. Problem solved.
