Of course, Rupert Murdoch lives in the US and is now an American citizen, but apart from that, the information appears correct. [Image found on Facebook.]

Never mind the cameraman whose foot was run over by Jeremy Corbyn’s driver (a policeman, it seems, not known to be a member of the Labour Party at all) – the billionaire-owned mass media have really shot themselves in the foot over Labour’s leaked manifesto.

The people who run these organisations still think they can tell us what to think; they haven’t adapted to the fact that we can offer our opinions back, as soon as they have published their drivel.

Take a look at this forceful re-editing of a Daily Mail front page, that exposes the falsehoods presented by Lord Rothermere’s organ:

The Mail and the Telegraph (owner: the billionaire Barclay brothers) both suggested that Mr Corbyn’s manifesto was an attempt to drag Britain back to the 1970s – without acknowledging that it was the decade when income inequality was at its lowest and people weren’t doing as badly as they are now. Yes, there had been an oil shock, engineered by the very rich, that had caused a recession. But the long-term effects were not to be felt until after Margaret Thatcher enforced her version of neoliberalism on us. That’s why Gabriele Kreichgauer posted this:

I also like this one, that arrived courtesy of Martin Odoni:

But we know Labour would not actually be taking the country back to the 1970s. That would be impossible because conditions across the world have changed. Labour would be taking the UK forward to a better future than the corrupt, rich person’s paradise/poor person’s hell in which we are currently living.

And vote Labour on June 8.
