Also political policy of the Scottish Nazi Party Trolls

BUT PEOPLE ARE ALSO USING ANONYMITY TO CALL OUT RACISM, SEXISM, HOMOPHOBIA AND ALL TYPES OF HARASSMENT

KASSEM YOUNIS, CREATOR OF THOUGHTS AROUND ME AND CEO OF MANA SAID:

“Unfortunately it is true that social media can be hijacked by those who wish to misuse it. However, used properly, social media is a fantastic tool for society – connecting people with common interests and allowing them to experience new and exciting things.

by technoguido

It wouldn’t be the first time BuzzFeed have deleted a story criticising their advertisers…

A question by Parliamentary question was filed today by Austrian politician Hans Joerg Jenewein about the links between Microsoft and Buzzfeed. As the book has also been presented as evidence too Austrian parliament it is therefore a matter of public record not liable to any legal action:

“Furthermore, it has recently been revealed that Microsoft’s powerful position may have influenced the ability of the media to write about it. I am speaking in particular about critical reports on Microsoft that were deleted from the international news site BuzzFeed. Microsoft is a major advertiser of BuzzFeed… Is the Ministry aware that the news agency Central European News (CEN), operating an office in Vienna, was accused by BuzzFeed of falsifying its reports after BuzzFeed found out that CEN was about to publish a report on the political connections between Kurt Gartlehner [Austrian Politician] and Microsoft?”

Juliet has been in the game a long time, working on carbon taxes for the European Parliament before setting up “Good Energy” which buys renewable energy and sells it onto eco-concious customers at premium rates. Mark has spent the past decade getting consent for 30 subsidised wind and solar farms, while spending his free time setting up various green investment vehicles.

Last year Juliet’s Good Energy bought 10% of the projected power from the Swansea lagoon for a £500,000 investment in its owners Tidal Lagoon Power. Mark happens to be the CEO of Tidal Lagoon Power. So the tax-payer will pay them to produce the energy, then they will be able to sell it on at a premium rate…

They have plans for 4 more lagoons. Of course they do…
