Boris, every step of the way

 

He’s angry and he should be.

 

What Mr Pie encapsulates here is not just the nature of the Conservative Party but, importantly, the firm support they have received from our broken Fourth Estate. Every step of the way, the established media has held the Conservatives’ hands and kept them firmly within an Overton window of their common interest.

 

This is not a conspiracy, there is no grand design. The Fourth Estate mirrors our society as a whole. Our education system, unpaid internships, social prejudices and, in this industry like many others, our unapologetic nepotism all but ensure the journalists, producers, editors and owners of our established media are wholly drawn from the same schools, demographics and interests as the Conservatives.

 

Enjoy the rant but don’t forget to do something about it!:
