Fox is to blame, not the BBC

I don't usually buy a paper, but every time I go into Co-op I like to browse the headlines of the various dailies. It's quite interesting to see how differently they cover the news, and how they each try too twist it in their own way. This morning, though, the front page of The Independent really got me swearing; in fact I found it rather troubling. Liam Fox is attacking the BBC, accusing it of not covering Brexit in the right way. He said the beeb would rather see Britain fail than Brexit succeed. In effect he is attacking the media rather than admitting that he and his fellow outists have completely screwed the country: They have rendered us an irrelevant little island nobody wants to trade with, but, oh no no! It's all the beeb's fault.

Why should guys like him be allowed to get away with it? They manipulate people into voting for something manifestly outside of their best interest, lying to them so that they put their rights at risk, then claim some kind of victimhood when things start going tits-up. It's utterly wrong. For that arrogant p'tahk Fox to start attacking the BBC because they are letting people see the utter stupidity of the referendum result is an insult to democracy. He does not want people to see the truth of what he and his fellow outists have done to us. It bears more than a whiff of totalitarianism, and I find it chilling.
