Now let’s look at just one of her articles, the merest tip of the iceberg: Is populism a threat to Europe’s economies?
After putting forward the view of the ECB, she then devotes the rest of the article to criticising it, “Has the ECB got its analysis the wrong way about?”. This concluding segment heavily quotes Olivier Vardakoulias, who we are told is an economist at the New Economics Foundation. Well he is, but what we are not told is that the New Economics Foundation is a left wing think tank who aim to build “a new economy where people really take control“, and that Olivier Vardakoulias is a member of Syriza, one of the far-left populist parties the article is supposed to be about. Branford you may remember was already a supporter of the ‘Greece Solidarity Campaign’ as far back as 2012, and Vardakoulias was a speaker at one of their events. He tells us that if “people will turn to nationalist anti-European parties…this will be a disaster for Europe.”
So what we are left with is that the establishment are wrong, and that the nationalist populists are wrong too, leaving only the far left option that we now know Branford herself supports. This isn’t just bias, this is deliberate subterfuge.
