Whether it be from ruthlessly ambitious corrupt government politicians in order to further their own grubby personal agendas, or the corporate company individuals lying or misleading the masses solely for profit and financial gain, by those instigating cover ups and preventing or delaying justice and fair play, right down to one individual lying to another for whatever pathetic reason.
Lying is unnecessary and is a sign of disrespect. Was always brought up by my mother and father to always take responsibility of my own actions and to tell the truth at all times regardless of the situation and possible consequences.
In the UK the lead up to the Brexit referendum was a complete nightmare for anyone with any intelligence and sense of logicwith the Government, Remain and Leave campaigns all coming out with different facts and figures. Either wilful lying or fabricated information, almost impossible to make an informed decision or balanced decision. Even post Brexit refendum result, when more is now known still the same old lies and incorrect quotes and distorted figures are being cited by the Remain party in order to overturn the democratic will of the people. Take any fuckers off air or ask them to leave the discussion with a barefaced lie or misquote. Easy.
General election with Catweasle saying he will pay off all outstanding student loans? Not in the Labour manifesto, secured many young people’s votes on the strength of it. A barefaced lie. Was allowed to say it repeatedly with no reprimand or sanction from anybody. How can we have an lectoral system based on lies?
Jean Claude Juncker has even gone on record and has admitted lying when it suits him. How is it possible to negotiate with any people who admit to lying? The only option is to walk away or even better not start talks in the first place.
Hillsborough, why has it taken 30 years to get to the point that it is at now when it was clear to anyone with any sense at all what actually happened? Cover ups and lies.
Why has nobody been prosecuted for the latest financial banking disaster where through the actions of only a greedy and corrupt few many millions of people suffered. Cover ups and lies.
Why was Lord Janner or Jimmy Savile never prosecuted? Why were the peaceful child paedophiles in Rotherham not prosecuted earlier? Cover ups and lies.
Why was the Glasgow bin man not prosecuted for killing 6 people? Why will Grenfell take years to sort out when the Americans can solve a similar incident in hours? Why is Tony BLiar still a free man? How does Allison Saunders still have a job?
The world would be a much improved place if all those in positions of authority (whether in government or government appointed authorities, or company CEO’s or directors) were brought to book and faced sanctions or penalties for telling barefaced lies or covering up the truth in order to protect or enhance their position.
Wishful thinking I know but wouldn’t the world be a better place. If only.
