UK Gov spends half a billion pounds on propaganda

"Labour – lightening your wallets to correct your thinking." They can have that for free, so long as they stick it up their arse.

Ave some of that, you peasants..

The cost of Government spin leapt by 43 per cent last year, figures show.

More than £540million was spent on advertising and marketing in the year to March, despite the deepening recession.

The huge rise was last night blamed on the cost of high profile 'nanny state' campaigns to tackle obesity, smoking and climate change.

Official figures, slipped out as MPs concentrated on the swine flu epidemic, showed spending on television, press and radio advertising grew by 35 per cent to £211million.

Digital marketing, which includes the internet, soared by 84 per cent to £40million.

Other costs included 'news and PR', which rose by 52 per cent to £40.9million, while live events to spread government messages nearly trebled to £34.3million.

Just proves the position of government as the self-imposed ‘morality/ health/ thought police’ of the people. It gets worse:

Mark Lund, the chief executive of the Central Office of Information, which co-ordinates government advertising, marketing and communications, said: ' Government campaigns can help save lives and save money.

I beg your pardon?

And also prop up other parts of the economy using taxpayers money. But this next line SAYS IT ALL.

'Changing behaviour is difficult but the benefits to the taxpayer and society can repay the investment many times over.'

Changing how you think, bringing you into line with the wise, superior thoughts of the Righteous. Can’t help remembering what another Righteous said, see if you can recognise it;

Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.
