Yes, this is a UK Column News post. By the time I come to post, I’ve had a morning-after BBC experience. BBC R4 Today, the antithesis of UKC News, featured MP Matt Handygina interviewed by John Humbumphrys… I shake my head in utter disbelief that this tool of a fool is not only my MP, but our Digital Minister. It was a classic case of politician trying to keep to his script on the Russian threat, the current FakeBook Camb Analytica issue and the British passport to be produced by a French company; persistently repeating words and soundbite lines.
I noted some of his comments…
“Tough on our approach to Russia…
Part of a pattern
A broader picture
Disinformation and propaganda
Undermining Western democracies
Ministers like me are not going to go to Russia
We are, this was, a very serious attack by the Russians
Threat to our way of life
The broad range of threat
We must have our €uropean allies…
Strong joint response by us, the US, the Germans…
Continue to engage with caution and with robustness
We require grown-up player on the world stage… (!!!!!!!)
Making the case..
Making it clear…
Digital protection laws
Now we have left the €U we are free to manage our own procurements…”
Asked about the UK passport being printed by a French company he repeatedly stated one of the advantages of Brexit is that we are free to manage our own procurement laws. This twit is my MP! The Best bit is his ‘grown-up’ comment. Hey Matt, ‘go away and shut-up!’ Do you mean grown-up language such as this? So, onto to some real and proper news analysis and reporting…
