BBC Colludes In A Lie With WorldRemit!!!

No comments: Links to this post

On the 1st December 2014, a BBC article written by Will Smale, a Business Reporter for BBC, lauded one of the greedy sharks of remittance as an angel saving the world. The article, which did not hide its tentacles of favouritism and full of PR for WorldRemit eulogize the business as charging "fees that are less than half those of the big players, a statement which is confirmed when you check its prices against those of the likes of Western Union.", but this statement is sheer lies! In fact, the statement clearly indicates how very little Ms Smale researched his article, let alone confirming what he was told [to say].

It was all about the man, Oscar. Documentaries after documentaries, special features after special features, uncountable news bulletins, articles, editorials, and you name it; its Oscar Pistorius that seem to have lost a lot, and luckily also, faces an unclear future. His ever important career that we all so enjoyed and will miss, and as such, lost our own joys; his success that reflects the successes of all of us; his disability that makes us all strong... its just about him. Dont get me wrong, I am not blaming him for all the above; its the media and God-knows what power working behind to inspire that trend.

Are UK Public Sector Institutions Really Unsustainable?

No comments: Links to this post
The most common rhetoric by UK politicians is usuallly how public sector institutions are too expensive to run and therefore unsustainable. But are these institutions really costly to run? If they are, why does most of them when privatized, suddenly start making profits? Isn't the stark reality that they are expensive because they are run [by staff] and used [by the population] with reckless abandon?
