    ‘Supposed to be NEUTRAL!’ Protestors BLAST Sadiq Khan for supporting second referendum

    This article in the rabidly right wing Express is a great example.

    Firstly report vaguely on an event that didnt reallly happen.

    In this instance a "demo" outside City Hall.

    Protestors gathered outside City Hall earlier today demanding to ‘Sack Sadiq Khan’.

    Except there dont appear to be any protesters apart from these two idiots.

    How do we know there are only two of them ? Because their pix have been taken with the river as a backdrop. If there had been a protest we would have seen stuff like, er, protesters.

    The next step is to usher in a ridiculous factoid and publish it without comment.

    So one of these idiots supposedly states:

    “Remainers must accept the result of democracy – he’s Mayor of London so he is supposed to be neutral.”

    Really ? Neutral ? He is a political figure ffs. Anyway job done. They have invented an event and planted an anti khan idea in the heads of their below average readers.

    The notion that a democratically elected politician calling for a vote is "undemocratic" exists in a reality far above their heads.

    The final test of fake news is that no other news organisation actually covered this "event".

    What happened is that the editor wanted a few more anti khan, anti brexit stories to fill his rag and ordered a journo to make something up. The two in the pic are probably friends of the journo or actually work for the paper.

    And yet this paper is quoted extensively on this site, generally by idiots.

    I think people avoid anything that doesnt confirm their views.
