    Wow, the guy doing Gove is great!

    I enjoyed 'The Deal' and 'Coalition' ... I expect this will be in the same vein...

    I quickly remembered the sadness and disappointment before and after the brexit. Our EU brothers from UK simply disappointed all the EU citizens. How come UK did not have an agency to forecast this manipulation ? Why is this referendum not anulated in the light of all this shit ?

    The book 'Propaganda: A Formation of Men' Attitudes' by Jacques Ellul is a really good read.
    Both sides were probably subjected to intense levels of propaganda and in fact it is sometimes very difficult to distinguish between art, information and propaganda.

    Poor UK... Criminal vote leave ,delusional brexiters , manipulated voters, ignorant remainers ,.... Only 2 referendums in 40 years?? In Europe some countries have referendums almost every year .. What could go wrong with shock news infected , economically damaged UK majority ? Uneducated people , bombarded with false anti European propaganda and outdated nationalism of course they vote brexit .This is the ultimate national stupidity put in law.. Good luck when reality hits and normal behavior coming back to Little England.

    Wow, seeing the amount of resentfully warped Brexiters childishly whining about how this is somehow "biased" and "propaganda" just shows their own deeply ingrained cognitive dissonance. Everything shown in this film has not only been verified by the very same people who ran the Leave vote, but it's even documented in conversations and comments which were either written down or recorded. It's incredibly pathetic to see so many people completely rejecting basic facts because of their own willful ignorance and self-indulgent arrogance.

      Having a debate with a leave voter is like having one with a brick wall, they refuse to believe anything negative about Brexit even though it is supported by logical facts, they'll just label it as "scaremongering as usual" because if they didn't then they'd have to admit that they're wrong.
      I just can't wait for all the bitter old pensioners that voted for it on the basis of nationalism to discover that their pensions will be worth sweet f-all due to the £s devaluation 😂

      I guess its hard for Brexiteers to tell which scenes are fiction and which are based on true events. They probably think Forrest Gump met the president and Game of Thrones was recorded during the heptarchy period of the country.

  • ArtistLoS

    I watched this show and found it interesting but very one sided.
    Very anti leave... made the voters look desperate or stupid and the leave campaign, as wreckless and crafty.
    I don't trust the vast majority of politicians, they are all currupt.
    I just see this production as the first step to pushing for a revote.
    Yet... think it may back fire as Cumberbatch was awesome, and it showed how out of touch politics is and how archaic those at the top are.
    Powerful stuff... but I agree with many of the comments on here, this the media steering the public.
    Use the code: Insect / Triquerta and click the lock lower right corner to learn of media control.

      @DARREN 123 I agree.
      No Deal might be better than what's being offered.
      That said... the tensions in Ireland would be VERY high... just a mess really.

    • DARREN 123
      DARREN 123 5 months ago

      I still think we should leave without a deal ,
      If they know we are willing to walk away a better deal could be had,
      We cannot accept this one it is not good for us at all,

    • ArtistLoS
      ArtistLoS 5 months ago +1

      @DARREN 123 back then there was no deal, and no talk of a divorce settlement...
      I agree the leave campaign concentrated on the pros of leaving and didn't voice the cons or how long it would take to get the deal we now have or have any part in the deal we now have...
      And the deal we have been given in actuality is worse than staying...
      Its like we are staying, still paying money into the EU, still no boarder deal for Ireland... and we get no say in new laws but still may have to adopt them intil the backstop...
      Heck article 13 will still hit us...
      In or out, right now I am not sure how we fair... or what the future holds, but we need change... all the main front line services are so stretched. Call the police for a robbery at your home you are lucky to have them arrive within the same week. Same with the NHS and schools...all stretched to breaking point.
      Have you seen
      Now thats a party I wished was running our country.

  • Lumibear

    I saw this, I thought it was interesting and did well at dramatising a very complicated event, in particular how Facebook was used to target the public with emotional propaganda created and operated by AI whose sole job was to mislead the easily manipulated masses who were ignorant of what the EU was or did, and also how the establishment is badly out of touch with this new world, which I felt explained a lot really.
    It was very simplified and dramatised and the caricatures of the politicians involved was pretty silly, but the main point I felt it was making was they really weren’t the point of this story, they were just those guys we saw on TV, political figureheads who weren’t even aware of who was really manipulating and controlling events, and them.
    Of course, how accurate this all is I guess we’ll understand as such ‘facts’ get disputed by those involved, but it certainly was a brain teaser.

    • allaci17

      kid, you are full of shit. also your NHS is literally a piece of shit, but i would really like to answer your question, so here is a very simple calculation for you, and your braindead, ignorant clown kind: in the past 3 years I've paid 12800 pounds of NCIs and tax to your country, 19% of it is a direct NHS contribution, which is 2415 pounds. I've been to the GP once, only to register (did it only last year). Considering, that the administration cost was an unjustyfiable 5!! XD pounds, 2410GBP was the NHS's profit on me.
      In the meantime, I've seen clear examples (7 months waiting list for ESWL treatment with a huge kidney stone), that your healtcare is a shit, therefore most foreigners simply get all these treatments and surgeries done in their home countries by private doctors due to: better, faster, higher standard treatments. Considering, that there are some EU migrants who receives treatment here, (which is once again, very rare due to the shitty standards, and the fact that young people are migrating here to work), lets say:
      1 out of 10 per year, worth of 300GBP,
      while the average yearly NHS contribution based on the average salary: 5181GBP
      there are 2,2 million EU citizens in employment, so (2200000*5181-300*2200000/10)/52=217 926 923 GBP
      let's correct this with the EU 1,5million children considering, that they cost twice as much to the NHS, (1500 000/10*600)52= 865 384 GBP/week
      thats a total of 217 061 538 GBP per WEEK, so the NHS would lose 217M per week shithead. now you can lie back, relax with the other british welfare and free healthcare hunters, and fuck your ignorant self.

      It's got nothing to do with savings, that's the point of this film. It's a complex issue but as we have all learnt it should never have happened.
      Is the NHS getting £350 million? So there's your answer.

    • Deividas Adomonis
      Deividas Adomonis 5 months ago +2

      Nonsense, UK unemployment is at 4% with all emigrants in working place. If remove / suspend all immigrants most businesses will shrink. It's simple it won't be enough workers to do all those jobs. UK aging populations will shrink all sectors. Pensions will shrink as well same as NHS and other services. The fact is EU immigrants don't stop at low paid job and get start educations or create own business and constantly grow. Those on low paid jobs return back home, and remember UK as bad experience. Other fact is if EU immigrant grow on is finances (some) UK public grow on anger.... I know lot of British people are angry at EU immigrants what coming here buying houses living decent live. No one take any job form no one. Is just immigrants have different energy levels against locals and achieve much more in the short period of time.... We all same people with same ambitions....

    • Deividas Adomonis

      We had a lot of good nurses forced to leave that came from philippines, but tory and EU regs of earning over a certain amount has now had many removed from UK ,
      Stopping EU free movement does not mean we cannot get workers from overseas it means we can now pick the best skilled visas still need to be applied for , what we had with free movement is UK stopped training there own in favour of European qualified nurses amd staff from countries that we funded to help them train , when we should of been funding our own to train,
      But thats a Tory thing throughout the last few decades , giving our jobs and compaines contract's
      Government funded Contracts
      to everyone else
      Every where else
      but its own nationals people and UK companies,
      Choosing forgiener investors contractors
      Means our future Youth and skills die out, it has not invested in or supported its own businesses which is why the UK is in such a dier situation
      With manufacturing and producing goods,
      Instead its supported only financial services where quick bucks are made for off shore hiding of funds, each tory politician has become much more wealthier becoming an MP than the wages they actually earn, using there position to amass a personal wealth at the cost of actually being a good true representative of the public whom voted them in,

      If that was true then why did the Guardian interviewer take issue with the writer over its historical inaccuracies, and leaving out important matters such as the illegal overspending, and object to its over the top caricatures of many of the real life people depicted such as Boris? You don’t get much more virtue signalling establishment left than the Guardian, shouldn’t have they been right on board?

      Also, I can play the victim too: how dare you assert that I am a nonce because I am gay you homophobe! See, sweetheart, we can all play the victim and lie, but it doesn't make your argument any more valid. Not that yours was in the first place.
