Just another great day inside in the Garden of England

As we all know Bimbo spends his LIFE on here, including family holidays in Portugal.

Watching Sharp or not makes no discernible difference to the quality of his posting.

Boris is Jim Jones and the People's Temple for some on here. Hope it doesn't turn too ugly for them.

Another wordy post that means almost nothing again from Sherblu. Posting while watching sharp isn’t that difficult for some. Clearly your watching something exceptionally gripping and complex.

A mission to deflect, though the sheer stupidity can’t go unchecked. I don’t get it. Such blind loyalty to a political party. A coordinated campaign of lies, mistruths and manipulation. It’s positively Orwellian. You have a guy in front of you who is lying through his teeth but you will support him no matter what. Brexit in a microcosm I suppose. My sympathies to you Henry and what’s left of the sane population of Britain.



They don’t agree with me ..... make them.......

Indeed how “Orwellian “.


Apologies, I’d assumed that most people had read 1984 by the age of 16 or so

Quote:
events.

Description Edit
Winston Smith, the main character of Nineteen Eighty-Four, works at the Ministry of Truth.[5] It is an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete rising 300 metres (980 ft) into the air, containing over 3000 rooms above ground. On the outside wall are the three slogans of the Party and "IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH." There is also a large part underground, probably containing huge incinerators where documents are destroyed after they are put down memory holes. For his description, Orwell was inspired by the Senate House at the University of London.[6]

Role in information Edit
The Ministry of Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history to change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth correct the record to make it accurate. This is the "how" of the Ministry of Truth's existence. Within the novel, Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence, the "why", is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind (if, for instance, they perform one of their constant changes regarding enemies during war) or make a mistake (firing an official or making a grossly misjudged supply prediction), for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.

Minitrue plays a role as the news media by changing history, and changing the words in articles about events current and past, so that Big Brother and his government are always seen in a good light and can never do any wrong. The content is more propaganda than actual news.


“Orwellian" is now a universal shorthand for anything repressive or totalitarian. The Brexit nationalist government is definitely more totalitarian than any British government in a long time.

Polling by Yougov doesn't look great for Dom.

Even Leave voters (45/37) think he should resign

Is there a case for Boris to say, he’s done wrong, he will be disciplined at a later stage, but in this crisis we need him so he’s not getting sacked.

I don’t care, but it might be a grown up way to move on

Nah, that's the last thing I could see happening. Either he rides it out and the story moves on or he's gone in relatively short order.

He may even hang on for a little while then leave and pretend it was his intention to move on to other opportunities at that point anyway

Given that Boris clearly doesn't want to lose his Chief of Staff surely the smart response would have been 'Cummings broke the rules. We are very disappointed and here's his apology. He has been formally reprimanded and will donate x% of his salary to NHS charities this month." These defences are bizarre.

I meant the description of the current Uk government as “totalitarian “ which is far from the truth.

They don’t want an apology for contrition, they want a confirmation of guilt.

Nah, it’s not ganna save him . No point. As I said the wife’s article should be the reason he goes rather than the actual obeying of the Law and looking after his family. However it’s more entertaining that he stick around.

Yeah. If the Mirror and the Guardian were sitting on this one (and it turns out to be true), they have played the government like a fiddle. We'll see
