Corporations run our government. There are 5 billionaires who run our media, and they have huge power in our democracy forcing our political parties to prioritize their wishes over the wishes of the British public. These 5 people not only own 80% of the newspapers we read every day, they also own TV stations, press agencies, book companies, cinemas, so everything we think or speak about in Britain is nearly controlled entirely by these 5 men.
These are the 5 men in control : Rupert Murdoch, Jonathon Harmsworth, Richard Desmond and the Barclay’s Twins.
They dominate and monopolise our culture and that is a disaster for democracy, because it means the wishes of the super wealthy 0.1% dominates our governments actions.
The leaders of our political parties are not the leaders of our country, they are basically rent boys for the 5 billionaires who decide everything.
This is why a movement has been set up called Occupy the Media Billionaires and #OccupyRupertMurdoch.
