A man called LBC to express his feelings regarding the EU referendum vote. 'I will put my hands up now and say I made a mistake, I feel stupid'. These are the words of a man that was sucked in by the lies and cold hard rhetoric from right wing media.
The caller also pointed his finger to the remain campaign, asking why the remain camp didn't step up to the plate. The answer, is that every single news outlet was telling the nation to leave. 'We must get out of the EU' was a headline from The Sun Newspaper and The Daily Express.
The right wing media have created, in the words of James O'Brien, a 'toxic reception' to anyone who questions the vote to leave. With headlines such as 'Damn the unpatriotic Bremoaners trying to subvert the will of the British people'. But let's be honest with ourselves. Only half of the British people actually voted to leave. That does not mean the voices of 16+ million people should be silenced. Especially when that number is increasing based on the revelations people are making in changing their mind on the referendum.
When every single paper in the land are printing propaganda to this scale, you really need to ask questions. Why are the Daily Mail always calling the remain campaign 'Remoaners'. Why are the Daily Express insisting we leave the EU and give up 40% of our economy. Why was the referendum held in 2016, and not as previously announced to be in 2017- 2018? There has to be a motive. It's only the big newspapers that are spreading this hatred.
