THE powers that be are going to look into fake news you know the thing, it’s like “will the last person to leave the UK turn out the light?”
That was the front page of The Sun comic if Labour got elected.
Fake news has been responsible for the election of Maggie Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair, David Cameron and now Donald (Duck) Trump. Why do I call Trump “Duck”? Because I think he’s quackers.
The first four had 95 per cent of backing from the media while Duck in America had 100 per cent backing. During the presidential election it was very hard to find the name Hillary Clinton in the media. It was all Trump. The media had all gone totally right wing in all its forms and along with the fake news they have risen together.
The Mexican wall, the ban on immigration: the only thing lacking is the concentration camps which Trump could call for tomorrow. He has the pedigree to outdo Adolf Hitler. He jack boots over everybody and like a spoilt bully wants it all and it’s all somebody else’s fault.
No matter how many millions sign up for him not to enter the UK we do have a far-right government.
Even his mouth-piece in the UK, Nigel Farage, is far right so it’s odds-on quackers is coming, so duck.
