BBC Propaganda Called Out #1 ‘Everyone’s leaving after Brexit’

The BBC’s position on Brexit has been as clear from the start as it is to this day – completely opposed to it, all their coverage unswervingly biased against it. 

So, perhaps it’s no surprise that the recent BBC article entitled ‘The Foreign Workers Leaving Britain because of Brexit’ is in exactly the same vein. Propaganda. And more, easily called out propaganda. Let’s have a look at the article, which gives an extremely favourable account of several EU citizens who’ve come to the UK, lived the dream etc etc, and now all want to leave due to Brexit.

Katarina Karmazinova came to London aged 24 to study European business. Attracted, she says, by the UK’s multiculturalism and openness, the Slovakian….

Katarina Karmazinova moved to London from Slovakia but sold her flat and moved overseas after the EU referendum vote

Karmazinova is not the only immigrant who feels this way since the referendum vote – the BBC propagandaarticle goes on in a similar vein, appealing photo of Karmazinova etc – Some are simply considering leaving and waiting it out for now. Others have already left, returning home, going somewhere else within the EU, or decamping to a different continent altogether.

It is too early to tell if Brexit’s upheaval could be partially responsible for fewer foreigners choosing the UK as a destination, but net migration to the UK did fall by 49,000 to 273,000 in the year to September 2016, according to the Office for National Statistics.

And next we’re on to undue focus on a website with actually a staggeringly low level
of take-up
, given the near 9-million foreign born citizens in the UK (and another sympathetic photo, of course).

After getting over the “shock” of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, 33-year-old Marcin BBC propaganda 1Czyza got the idea for an online recruitment firm to help people, especially foreign nationals, who were suddenly considering career opportunities outside of the UK…. Within a few months, interest in the site took off. There are more than 1,200 registered candidates. Roughly 90% of them are foreigners living in the UK, with the majority originating from Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

Here, not even photo of the person, so we’ll just have to take the BBC’s word that he exists, and said all this, predictable patter – 

When Dariusz Truchel emigrated to Britain from Poland in 2005, he did so with the idea that he would find “better job possibilities”. Once settled outside of London, he worked as a project manager and took a number of health and safety courses, eventually setting up his own health and safety consultancy. Truchel even bought a house.

So the inevitable fairytale, of course, the crashing post-Brexit comedown…

But after Brexit, Truchel, 34, began feeling pessimistic about the future. He began noticing a new attitude among people who had voted to separate from the EU. “It is hard to describe this atmosphere because nobody dares to say it to your face, but there is a feeling of being an uninvited guest,” he says. He registered on Expat Exit and is now seriously considering leaving the UK.

And there’s another example, in a similar note, again no photo, and this time, ’32-year-old Romanian Alex’, only eve wants his first name revealed. Another pre-Brexit fairytale ‘all wrecked by Brexit etc etc.’


BBC propaganda 2And, just to wrap things up, we have another nice photo of  Karmazinova)
, who now ‘spends her time travelling while she decides where she will settle… Karmazinova, the Slovakian who left the UK, has yet to decide where she will settle – but she knows it won’t be back in the UK as long it stays separated from the EU. ‘ 

And it goes on for a bit in that vein, before concluding in, well the same vein, without even the slightest attempt to introduce anything approaching another side. So, nothing about the millions, and millions of foreign workers in the UK planning to stay, I even found some on the pro-EU March for Europe, they may not have liked Brexit, but nor were they planning on leaving. Nor anything about the murderers, rapists, and violent criminals which the UK couldn’t deport under EU rules.

But then that’s the BBC, nothing if not the most relentless of propaganda! 

My UK Reportage: A Wrap-up!

As  prepare to leave – it’s been an enormously busy last 2 months in the UK, working on the edits of documentary projects, dozens of articles here on the Truth Speaker, and video reportage. There will be one more report to come from the UK, part 2 of this special reportage on the recent terrorist attack in London –

To recap, here was January when I visited the UK parliament to ask at a UK/Ukraine event if they would be mentioning Ukrainian shelling civilian areas of Donbass:

The introduction to my documentary about the murder of Barry Pring

My coverage of the anti-Trump protests in London at the start of February – 

A few days later, and I try to go to a Ukrainian event in London –

And here, I succeed in getting into a Ukrainian propaganda event at the LSE! 

The end of February here, and I visit the Ukrainain Embassy in London – 

March, and a look at what Women’s Day means in London!

Then, my day as a DPR tourist in London!

Masses of reportage from the March for Europe on March 25th –

And even a trip to Scotland to bring you the reality there of how people feel about a proposed new referendum!

It’s overall achieved hundreds of thousands of views, on my channel alone, coverage in mass media – and much more! I’m a completely crowdfunded journalist, and none of this would have been possible without your support. To be involved, click here!

Thanks again, and on we go!!

 

Ukraine targets Journalists (again), as the west just looks on (again)

Graham Phillips

In Ukraine, ‘radicals’ have published the latest issue of playing cards issued to Ukrainian soldiers with ‘kill targets’ on them. But don’t be fooled by ‘radicals’, be sure the Ukrainian government have given their full support to this, and the cards will be issued to Ukrainian soldiers, as previously (see my photos here of cards, after Ukrainian forces retreated from Lugansk airport, September 2014) –

ukraine-cards ukraine-cards1
Here they are: 
ukraine-death-cards

As well as myself, a UK freelance journalist, being on there, there are several other journalists, including prominent Russian journalist Dmitry Steshin.

So, where’s the outrage over this from the west? The headlines blasting Ukraine Targets Journalists…. where’s the outrage from western governments??

Nowhere at all. Remember, this is Ukraine and the west will blindly support Ukraine, because it’s a really convenient country to use to have a go at Russia.

Crimea, Russia and to Rage against the UK Propaganda Machine

Graham Phillips

I’ve been back in the UK for over a month now, and in that time, I’ve come to understand a few things better, especially the meaning of Orwell’s phrase that the future is ‘a boot stamping on a human face forever’.

But that’s hardly where the Orwell references end. Because in the UK it’s works a truly Orwellian-style propaganda machine, designed to keep the populace in eternal suspension of the purported threat of, of course – Russia! 

There’s Boris Johnson over in Kiev, churning out an incessant slew of anti-Russian rhetoric, without any substance to back it up, but because it’s anti-Russian, it’ll naturally be accepted unquestioned:

screenshot-1215

What we do have, of course, is Boris meeting ‘Crimean Tatars’ and condemning Russia’s ‘illegal annexation‘ of Crimea…

screenshot-1307Yet this provided without any context whatsoever. Russia’s ‘illegal annexation‘ of Crimea came about after a referendum there, which came about after a violent overthrow of government in Ukraine, Euromaidan. Yet, Euromaidan is exalted in the UK, events at eminent establishments are held in its honour, and dissenting from the narrative is not condoned –

Euromaidan is so important because the whole house of cards rests on it. It must be purported that Euromaidan was good. Because then it can be sustained that Crimea, and Donbass, are ‘bad’, and ‘Russian aggression’. And the situation in Crimea must be made out to be ‘bad’ (as it always is), with particular focus on the Crimean Tatars and their supposed repression.

In the above Crimean Tatar photo, it looks like Crimean Tatar figure Mustafa Dzhemilev, self-appointed ‘leader of Crimean Tatars‘, who supported Euromaidan tatarsin Crimea, left in 2014 for Kiev, and has provided an endless source for western media of reports of repression, persecution etc against Crimean Tatars in Crimea, despite himself not having been there for some 3 years now.

In Crimea, some are puzzled why Dzhemilev has never attempted to return to the peninsula, most accept that he has found a lucrative stream in Kiev, endlessly reciting how ‘repressed’ his people are, to eager audiences who ensure he is well remunerated for his suffering.

Yet in Crimea, Dzhemilev is regarded by most Crimean Tatars as a traitor to his own people:

And, as here, my reportage, while you can find Crimean Tatars who will tell you they preferred life under Ukraine, they are in the minority, and more, feel free to express that opinion:

But, none of this must be allowed to reach mainstream media. There, it can only be a wall of ‘blame Russia’, that’s become so much of a meme the Russian Embassy in the UK regularly joke about it –

screenshot-1310

What are the Ukrainian Embassy doing, meanwhile? Pumping out a relentless stream of tweets blaming Russia for everything…

screenshot-990screenshot-1258
screenshot-1264screenshot-1252And they are fully supported by the UK in doing this, the UK’s own embassy ever happy to tweet, retweet anything, as long as it’s pro-Ukrainian, and by default, anti-Russian. Ukraine really is an incredibly convenient country for those looking for a stick with which to beat Russia, so much so that all are willing to turn a blind eye to the manifest problems with, and in, Ukraine –

And when it’s not Ukraine, there’s always a subculture of Russia which can be passed off as Russia, look at Reggie Yates’ recent ‘yoof’ style series on BBC, Extreme Russia, simply a chance to go round exposing all that’s bad about the country, safe in the knowledge that no one over here will either disagree, or seek to present the other side.

So, that’s the reality as we have it, walls, and waves of anti-Russian propaganda. And nowhere’s safe, not even sport, this is how the BBC are portraying the upcoming World Cup in Russia:

Of course there are those in the UK who can see behind the lies, and the masks, to the truth. But you have to really want to. You are faced with a colossal propaganda machine in the UK, to lie down is to let it simply stamp all over you. To stand against it, you have to be be prepared to, as things are now, stand almost alone.

It’s been an active time in Donbass
, and I know you’ve been following Patrick Lancaster for the latest updates from there, Patrick’s crowdfunder here, by the way.

ben-stimson-donbassHowever, there’s been plenty going on in the UK too. Firstly, there was the hugely significant news that the UK are going to prosecute Oldham-born Ben Stimson for fighting on the side of the people’s militia, in Donbass, against the Ukrainшфтn army (despite Ben by all accounts never having taken part in active conflict). This is the first prosecution of its kind, and has major implications, of which I’ve written here. 

In other news, about Brits abroad, I was happy to be able to inform you that work is well underway on my new film, made with your support ‘A Brit in Crimea (on his holidays)’.

The premiere will be in the UK in summer, and for the first time, here are some exclusive photos of the filming, which included an interview with a man from Kiev, a pro-Ukrainian from Crimean even, the whole point of this film, and principle – anti-propaganda.

Meanwhile, I’ve been continuing to work on the case of Barry Pring, here in the UK. That’s involved the Ukrainian Embassy in the UK, and here’s my post about what they do, or rather don’t do here in London.

doctor-lizaIt’s been a very busy time recently, I completed a 2-hour-film about the late, amazing Doctor Liza, which am now working on English subtitles for. And a trip to what transpired to be an LSE pro-Maidan propaganda event inspired me to start a series of videos aimed at being short bursts of reality about situations often at the centre of lies, as with Euromaidan, Donbass, Crimea (see below), and more. The first, on Euromaidan: 

Also, I’d like to have these videos in as many languages as possible, and it would be great if you could be involved in that, click here.

As for Crimea, I’m happy to say that work is well underway on my film, made with your support via crowdfunding ‘A Brit in Crimea (on his holidays).’

And, referring to the ‘Embassy’ and ‘Murder’ of the title, here’s my new article about what exactly the Ukrainian Embassy do in the UK.

https://thetruthspeaker.co/2017/02/24/what-do-the-ukrainian-embassy-actually-do-in-the-uk/

Going back a little by the way, and there’s been so much on it’s been hard to keep up at times. This was my article giving the definitive answer as to whether there are Russian tanks in Donbass – 

https://thetruthspeaker.co/2017/02/11/are-there-russian-tanks-in-ukraine-the-definitive-answer/

And here, about Ukraine seizing my mobile phone records

https://thetruthspeaker.co/2017/02/17/ukraine-seize-my-mobile-phone-records/

That story was also covered here by the Courier, with pro-Ukraine trolls predictably jumping on the comments section.

So it’s been a very busy time, and there’s a lot more to come! As ever, my enormous thanks for your being with me, making it all possible!
