Woah!! This is a serious and sinister move, threatening democracy and reminiscent of similar moves by countries which are grotesquely state-controlled:

 "Today's "i" newspaper leads on the banning yesterday of its political editor and journalists from a number of other news organisations from a Downing Street briefing.
[size=13]The paper says shutting out certain publications damages the bedrock of a free media, which exists to help hold the government to account.
The Mirror - another excluded newspaper - describes the move as tin-pot tyranny.Downing Street must never be allowed to dictate what you read, hear and see, it says, or democracy is undermined."[/size]

Ha ha, your anti-government posts are becoming more desperate by the day.

And by the way, will you please learn to cut and paste.

The mirror would definitely have given a fair and balanced view. 

Shocking and straight out of the grubby trump playbook.

I wouldn't be anti-government if they would act in ways which are beneficial to our country and to you yourself, Nat, but to ban the i and the Independent, for example, is seriously worrying.
 I presume that your unpleasant rants suggest you believe in freedom of speech? 

What I wrote is cut and pasted exactly as it is written in the BBC online summary of today's news headlines, but I'll learn to adapt the way it translates onto the Nuts pages if you will learn to be a bit more discerning and sensiblly grown-up about threats to our way of life, rather than play to the crowd so inanely.

The Mirror was another of the papers that was thrown out of the press briefing by the Tories

Are the mirror any more biased than the Mail are the other way?

The issue is the government choosing which bias they want to give access to, not the fact that bias exists.

The only way to address that is non selective briefings, but you know that. What would it take for you to disagree with the governments actions?

The Independent should be safe as it's still owned by Murdoch who is starting to get his payoff for Brexit - consolidated yesterday by the Tory Government undermining the BBC's licence fee income.

The "i" however is owned by Lord Rothermere who also owns the Mail - a group which is now being punished since they stopped their more extreme pro-Brexit rantings and lies when Paul Dacre was replaced as editor 18 months ago.

Presumably these measures to undermine Murdoch's competition are amongst the things Boris was told to do when he sent Odey round to Downing St - but I doubt we'll ever be able to confirm it. 

It will be interesting to see how far the commercial payoffs will go.

Brexiteer response 1 - it's the EU's fault, they are punishing us for leaving.

Brexiteer response 2 - it's the Remainers' fault, they should have warned us this would happen.

Funny how nothing is ever the consequence of these muppets voting for brexit.

I’m sure “getting rid of EU red tape” was one of the myths peddled to get idiots to vote to leave. 
At least we can grow bananas any shape we want now 😄

Actually I think I called them muppets. Smile

I concede that my phrasing is ambiguous. I mean those brexiteers who blame everybody but themselves for the consequences of their actions.

I read that article as Brexit created a job.

Although £40k a year to fill out paperwork seems generous.

Seems to me that Samways were struggling to make a profit when we were in the EU. Maybe a few government subsidies might help.

Accounts are bang up to date though. That's a lot more than can be said for most of the companies mentioned on Vince Watch.
