Broadcasting in Britain is controlled by the royal family - and they will force any television channel that criticises them to close down, Press TV revealed today.
Ofcom has revoked Press TV's licence, claiming that Press TV had not paid the £100,000 fine that had been demanded after it had broken regulations by broadcasting a "forced" confession from a journalist, and also for being controlled from Teheran rather than London. [more here]
Ofcom is said to have close ties to Britain's royal family. And the cables released by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks show that Press TV's programs on the royal wedding, which many in the country described as extravagant, angered the royal family.
The CEO of Press TV, Mohammad Sarafaz, is not daunted:-
Sarafraz stressed that Ofcom's bid to revoke Press TV's license will not prevent the channel from broadcasting the truth about the British Royal regime.
“It is futile to attempt to conceal the truth from the people of Britain, and those that want to hear our alternative voice will find a way despite your efforts,” he said.
In these internet streaming days, Mr Sarafaz is no doubt right. Those who are looking for the alternative voice on eg the "Holocaust", will not be thwarted. The fair-minded analysis of the brilliant literary stylist, George Galloway, will still be available. Lauren Booth will still speak her truths to power about Zionist control of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign. and their persecution of the popular intellectual, Gilad Atzmon.
Hireling lackey of the British government and Welsh corgi poodle John Humphrys "covered" the story of Press TV on the BBC's Today programme this morning (second item from the end). He interviewed Yvonne Ridley, an employee. So afraid was he of any more revelations about the British royal family's stranglehold on broadcasting in Britain he did not once ask her to enlarge on this exclusive story of Press TV's.
Ms Ridley announced that Press TV could not pay the fine as there are sanctions on Iran's banks. As for her salary, barrels of unrefined oil are collected by her, Mr Galloway and Ms Booth at London's docklands where they hawk them in the street.
All right minded people should demand further investigation into the Royal family's death grip on the media of this country.
We know that Prince Charles is in the habit of interfering in political affairs - normally on matters of architecture, the environment and quack medicine. However, if he has been leaning on media outlets who question paying for Royal extravaganzas, that is the end of The Guardian, the New Statesman and letter writers to The Times.
Here's something that Carol Ann Duffy, the poet laureate should address:-
To keep your job,
Act like mater
And shut your gob
Note from Ofcom:- Guards, take her away. (Clang of dropping portcullis).
