The Dishonest And Manipulative Tactics Continue On The 'No' Side.

From the Solidarity Times - Free the Media, Be the Media Facebook page a piece on what the writer sees as dishonest and manipulative tactics employees in the debate around the Eighth Amendment/. 

The Save the Eighth campaign has defended a booklet delivered to 200,000 households which has the appearance of an official Government publication.

The green booklet, entitled Your Guide to the Referendum – Information on the Government’s Proposals, looks like an official Government publication but instead contains arguments put forward by the No side, likely to be disputed by Yes campaigners.

The booklet warns that “unborn babies at all stages of pregnancy will have no constitutional rights, and you will never have a say on this again.

well, the first thing that strikes me about this outrageously dishonest and manipulative booklet that is straight out of an orwellian nightmare is the cover which says -

INFORMATION ON THE GOVERNMENTS PROPOSALS.

in all my life i have never seen such an underhand way of....of...erm....ah telling us that ....erm.....that this is....... ehm.....information on the governments proposals.

quite frankly, this is unacceptable and i think we should not let them away with such an egregious crime, i mean imagine being so cunning and devious as to put something like that on a booklet. they're actually worse than terrorists and i think internment should not be ruled out.

as for this -

The booklet warns that “unborn babies at all stages of pregnancy will have no constitutional rights, and you will never have a say on this again."

finally. im very glad to see that you actually covered this on your facebook page, i mean, wouldnt it be terrible if google and facebook and twitter censored you. keep up the good work guys and gals. this contribution to the debate is immense and wont be forgotten. stunning work.

Propaganda and manipulation is the order of the day. That's on all sides, by the way - juicy titbits pulling at heart strings all spurred on by inept, freeloading politicians. And it doesn't matter whether info is right or wrong. Wonder what one would make of children born into an egalitarian society, brought up in an environment where people can think and decide for themselves.
