Jonathan Pie clarifies the situation on strikes and the government

The joy of Jonathan Pie is the way his clips highlight the difference between what a news reporter might say on-air, and what they actually may think.

In this case, we see him discussing how striking workers may be upsetting the apple-cart while he’s on-air, and expressing support for those same workers when he isn’t.

And it is very clear which line of discussion we are expected to support.

Here’s the clip. If you don’t agree with striking workers after this, you may have no soul:

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    I used to laugh at Jonathan Pie’s videos, wonderful stuff, but I watched this yesterday and thought there was a real edge to his anger. As for me, it actually nearly brought me to tears thinking how low what passes for a ‘government’ has sunk over the past 12 years. You think they can’t sink any lower but they somehow keep managing it.

    Jonathan Pie’s succinctly defines who the real scroungers are and they are the fascist tories! Fake government is corrupt and rotten to the core! Fascist tories’ cronies the media continue to peddle their lies and claim it is the impoverished nurses,railway workers, royal mail staff and in fact everyone who isn’t a wealthy fascist tory donor who are supposedly the ones ‘ruining our little england!’

    A must view video!!
