Give all political parties equal billing during elections

By Dark Politricks

Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party has launched an urgent appeal for a £50,000 “fighting fund” after the BBC refused to allow the Scottish National party leader a place in the televised election debates and he is hoping to force the broadcaster to show an extra national debate in which the three main British parties appear alongside the national parties from Scotland and Wales.

Mr Salmond said:

“Sky, as opposed to other broadcasters, is broadcasting its debate across the UK and giving it the same billing as the English debates. We are in an extraordinary situation where the BBC is carving the debates up with the London parties.”

I have just watched the Sky debate in Scotland in which Alex performed very well. The Labour politician who appeared, the soft spoken Jim Murphy was a total sop who had no answer to the questions thrown at him about civil liberties. This was the first time I had heard any proper mention of the police state Labour has brought into existence and I was itching for some form of explanation for the erosion of rights and enactment of laws that have severely reduced our rights.

He wants to extend the national DNA database to include more innocent people so that the Scottish database is more inline with the illegal English database and his defence to the claim that it erodes civil liberties was that the government had the duty to use whatever technology to keep the public safe. Therefore following his logic it won’t be too long until every citizen is forced to wear GPS monitoring devices so that they can have their whereabouts logged 24/7 just in case a crime is committed. The technology is already there..

The Lib Dem spokesman Alistair Carmichael asked why the anti terrorism laws were constantly being abused by the Labour party and referred to the OAP protester arrested for daring to heckle anti war statements at a previous Labour conference. I really wanted to hear an answer to that question but dopey Jims mouth never moved.

The debates have certainly made this election more interesting especially seeing that we haven’t had any of the theatrics on the road that previous elections have. I would dearly love to see Prescott punch another bystander but instead I will have to make do with televised verbal assaults during the debates.

To be honest I feel for the SNP as its plainly obvious from the recent surge in support for the Lib Dem’s that the televised leader debates have made a major difference in this election. If all parties contesting the election were given a fair crack of the whip in terms of air play on TV and coverage in the press then I wouldn’t be surprised if support was more evenly spread rather than the current situation where we have the Tories and Labour taking the majority with the Lib Dems battling for third place.

Being given equal billing on the leaders debates has proved that the British public when given an opportunity to think for themselves will do so. This just goes to show the power that the usual political propaganda has on the country when its force fed to the masses through the daily papers and the usual two party bias on TV.

I cannot imagine how a live televised debate with all parties being given equal footing would work as the last time I voted was for the European elections and my ballot paper contained at least 20 different political parties.

Maybe in this day and age of reality TV and instant phone voting that depends on how well the public relates to the personality rather than the policy we need a totally new way of running elections.

I think that instead of having a month of door step knocking and a few debates the leaders of all 30+ parties (maybe there is more?) in this country should be locked in the big brother house for a month with the public voting those politicians off who they don’t like. The only difference with the normal big brother would be that the only topic of conversation could be politics rather than the usual minutia and bullshit.

We have already had George Galloway prance around in a red leotard and purr like a cat in a bid to win over the younger voters (how did that work out for you George?) so why not throw Dave, Gordon, Nick, Alex and all the rest in as well. I can’t promise it would be good television but it would fit in with the culture of celebrity and reality TV that the public seems to lap up. Plus it would allow all parties to have equal billing.

I cannot think of a fairer way seeing that Alex’s SNP may be running the show in the Scottish Parliament but they only have a few seats at Westminster. If we were to give these two parties equal billing with Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem then why not the UKIP, BNP, Green and Monster Raving Loony party. Yes America we really do have a monster raving loony party over here.

If anyone can think of a fairer way to give all parties equal billing without banning the printing of newspapers for a month please let me know.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
