Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Absolutely massive pro-brexit Media bias. From 'Left Foot Forward' - A leftist website but the facts are correct.
Over a quarter (27.3 per cent) of the press is owned by Lord Rothermere and 24.9 per cent by Rupert Murdoch – between them these two men have over 50 per cent of the printed press.
Over three quarters (77.8 per cent) of the press is owned by a handful of billionaires. There are only 88 billionaires among the 63 million people in the UK and most of the barons do not even live in the UK.
Not to mention Sky TV.
Do you think those billionaires want their tax affairs inspected by the new EU tax avoidance rules?
