Maybe I don’t hear all the BBC reports about Catalonia but the ones I do hear and read always leave out one obvious parallel…Brexit. How can that be when it is such an obvious link?
The Today show discussed Catalonia today [08:40] but remarkably made no mention of Brexit, then they moved on to Italy where two regions want more autonomy and we heard that they were ‘following Catalonia’….really? And who was Catalonia following? Again no mention of Brexit. Extraordinary omission….the BBC happy to link Brexit to 1930’s Nazi Germany making parallels to that but not to modern day European independence movements.
Why does the BBC make so much effort to distance Brexit from these other independence movements? Does the BBC not want you to think there is widespread feeling across Europe that leans towards some form of nationalism and local identity and control and that the grand EU project so beloved of BBC liberals is not in the interests nor in the hearts of the people of Europe?
The BBC manipulating the news in order to manipulate your minds.
