David Cameron's government seeks to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse

Wealthy David Cameron Buys Facebook 'Likes' to distort his popularity &  policies in a distortion of democracy. Meanwhile Trade Unions are gagged.

The Conservatives in coalition government are seeking to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse.

Unlike the unelected so-called millionaire prime minister - 'Respect For the Unemployed & Benefit Claimants' is NOT in a position to BUY facebook 'LIKES' - Dont let his FACEBOOK page fool you - Nobody likes a Tory.

Our page has nearly 25,000 likes - that is down to the HARD work of group members sharing, liking & commenting on our posts - which in turn allows 'news items' we post - to be shown in their 'NewsFeed'.

WE hereby ask readers do the following on facebook > visit  David Cameron click the button near his 'page LIKE' & report his page - tick 'I Just Don't Like It' section.

Politics & democacy is deception in Britain - in the run up to the General Election of 2015 - political parties will be buying "sponsorship' on FACEBOOK (filling up your newsfeed) - meaning 'posts' like ours will be seen less & less - THIS IS WRONG.

Pathetic David Cameron pays out for Facebook fans and manages to double his social media following in a month. The Conservative Party have spent thousands on advertisements on Facebook to encourage users to 'like' the page.

Just over a month ago, he was almost 20,000 'likes' behind Nick Clegg's 80,000 - but now he has 127,000 - Facebook would not reveal details, but say the campaign would have cost about £7,500 of party funds - Facebook are charging about 50p per ‘like’.
Do you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts like Facebook & Twitter?  For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult.

But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments have been doing this.  As you will see from the following link, a UK intelligence outfit known as the Government Communications Headquarters, through a previously secret unit known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, has been systematically attempting “to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse”.

This should be deeply disturbing to anyone that values free speech on the Internet.

It isn’t just that the British government is trying to influence what people are thinking.  The reality is that this is far bigger than a mere propaganda campaign.  As Greenwald recently noted on his new website, the “integrity of the Internet itself” is at stake…

David Cameron is simply trying to distort his popularity - the Conservatives & his posh friends are trying to buy the next ELECTION - Meanwhile trade unions in Britain are gagged.

Despite a massive campaign of resistance, the Tories managed to pass what has become commonly known as "the gagging bill". The mainstream corporate press have played along with the government by continually referring to it as the "lobbying bill", despite the fact that the majority of the lobbying industry will remain entirely unaffected by it. Essentially the bill protects in-house corporate lobbying operations from any kind of official scrutiny, meaning that a cloak of secrecy will still shroud their influence upon our politicians.

The fact that the so-called "lobbying bill" does so little to regulate the activities of corporate lobbyists isn't even the worst of it. The truly appalling part is the extensive second section of the bill which is clearly designed to silence critics of the government such as charities, voluntary organisations, protest groups, trade unions and religions ((which despite the bile from the obnoxious anti-theist ranter brigade, have done much good work in promoting social justice).
The intention to use this new legislation in order to revoke the freedom of speech of organisations that criticise government policy was made absolutely clear by the language used by Iain Duncan Smith in his tirade against the Trussell Trust food bank group earlier in January.

        In America the US State Department spent $690,000 to 'buy' Facebook 'likes'
The campaign to spend taxpayers money to try to get more Facebook 'likes' on its sites prompted workers to complain to a watchdog.

The US State Department, which has the slogan "Diplomacy in Action, spent $690,000  412.370) to try and "buy fans" in social media, the agency's Inspector General (IG) said in a report.

The State Department's Bureau of International Information Programs spent the money to increase its "likes" count from 2011 to March 2013, the Washington Examiner reported.

American trade unionists criticise the advertising campaigns as 'buying fans' who may have once clicked on an ad or 'liked' a photo but have no real interest in the topic and have never engaged further. The State Department's Facebook page likes increased during the spending from 100,000 to more than 2 million and to 450,000 on Facebook's foreign-language pages.

David Cameron & the Conservatives are trying to buy your votes - they are trying to buy the next General Election - the Tories have closed down free speech, they have gagged the trade unions & campaging bodies.
