We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

The Guardian’s anti-Brexit fake news

An article, since deleted, made nonsense claims about the treatment of EU migrants.


When you try to find the article now you get a page that says it has been removed (rather amusingly, the related stories are eight other removed articles). The Guardian, unwilling to admit to its failures, claims that the piece was ‘taken down because it was found to have been based, in good faith, on outdated information’. This was after 16,000 people had shared it.

    The “Guardian” (socialist partner of the New York Times and the rest of the American “mainstream” media) has been caught lying – but rather than admit it was lying, it resorts to more lies to try and cover up its lies.

    Constant lies – that is the mark of the “Guardian”.

    Given what doesn’t get taken down in The Gaurdian, this one must have been a real doozy.
