This is an example of the distorted inaccurate reporting of the far-left of the political spectrum. It’s worth a read, just to be able to identify truly biased writing. Check it out!

When I first saw the reference to Global Research I thought that this might be a respectable think-tank. Let me share what Rational-Wiki shared about Global Research:

Despite presenting itself as a source of scholarly analysis, Globalresearch mostly consists of polemics many of which accept (and use) conspiracy theories,pseudoscience and propaganda. The prevalent conspiracist strand relates to global power-elites (primarily governments and corporations) and their New World Order. Specific featured conspiracy theories include those addressing 9/11,vaccines,genetic modification,Zionism,HAARP,global warming,Bosniangenocidedenialism and David Kelly.

Globalresearch contributors are happy to source information from anyone who seems vaguely aligned with their ideology; during the 2011 Libyancivil war the site was an apologist for Muammar al-Gaddafi, reproducing his propaganda and painting him as a paragon of a modern leader. In the 2014 Ukrainian crisis the site is taking the standard “anti-globalisation” stance against the Western side and falling into the ranks of imperial Russian propaganda instead.

It’s no surprise then that the site has long become a magnet for radicals, fringe figures and whacko elements from the left in general.

Returning to the story, David Cameron does not deserve this sort of distorted reporting.

My politics are clearly defined (open link for more information). In particular, I completely reject the growing influence of both the far-left and the far-right.

As editor of this blog, I believe in understanding all side of the argument. But most of all, will also question to see the quality of the evidence.

Personally, I can identify with much of the argument.

Once again, I am left pondering whether there is indeed a global conspiracy of the rich and famous, influencing world order. Clearly, democracy seems to be diluted in its effectiveness in many western countries.
