What's more important, news on Austerity or Why I hate my cat?

The corporate media is a 'funny' machine.

It can propagate inaccurate, false or deliberately misleading information or even distract the plebs from the real issues of society, or even not report on a significant event that has occurred.

Not that anyone would be accusing the (teflon) Murdoch Media empire of anything, as even a phone hacking scandal cannot stick, and besides it would be called a 'conspiracy theory' and no doubt that could be illegal soon on the 'updated' prison isle of Alcatraz, called Australia.

The fraud and corruption of people in government, and the corporation conglomerate in Australia commonly referred to as the 'government' is defrauding people billions of dollars annually, sending them further into the debt slave system.

In order to keep the plebs distracted or controlled various methods are employed by the 'authorities', which could include but are not limited to: sport, religion, false flag events that create tension within the community, so called 'reality' television shows which are 'rigged' just to name a few examples.

On the front page of the mobile version of a Rupert Murdoch owned news site, under the 'world' label a few stories appear which include, car rampage in Europe, parachutist saving teammate's life, an MP to air Mohammed cartoons and even Tiger Woods' hilarious blooper.

What the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) mobile news website reported on their front page was protest by approx 250,000 people against austerity in London with zero arrests.

It is not any different in Australia.

The corrupt Australian government, i.e. people in politics, MP's, law makers, etc are defrauding the masses on a huge scale, but when will the Australian sheep wake up?

At least 250,000 (or whatever the real figure is) people in the U.K. are awake AND prepared to put "their money where their mouth is"!

#EndAusterityNow: Tens of thousands march against austerity measures in London

Tens of thousands of demonstrators have staged an anti-austerity march in London in the first major public protest since Conservative prime minister David Cameron was re-elected.

Opposition politicians, trade union bosses and celebrities, including singer Charlotte Church and comedian Russell Brand, were among the crowds marching through the capital's financial district.

The End Austerity Now demonstration — billed by organisers as the biggest in years — was to finish outside the Houses of Parliament, while a similar march took place in Glasgow.

Organisers claimed as many as 250,000 people had joined the march.

While police would not put a figure on attendance, they said there had been no arrests and no violence, although a series of flares were let off.

Protesters called for the halting and reversal of spending cuts imposed by the previous coalition government and further measures proposed by finance minister George Osborne.

"We have seen a huge impact on our work at primary school," said Sian Bloor, 45, a teacher from Trafford near Manchester.

"I regularly bring clothes and shoes for children and biscuits for their breakfast just so they get something to eat.

"You can see how children are being affected by the cuts."

Green Party leader Sharar Ali said the turnout was "fantastic".

"We're showing solidarity with all the groups, political organisations or those with no political affiliation to say loud and clear, enough is enough," Mr Ali said.

"This government has been implementing programs and policies which have made the poor poorest whilst making the rich richest."

Placard-waving protesters marched from the Bank of England and filed past the nearby Royal Exchange, as the sound of drummers filled the air, creating a festival atmosphere.

A wide variety of campaigners were at the rally, including those opposed to the Trident nuclear program, hunting, tuition fees, fracking, along with various trade unions.

"It will be the start of a campaign of protest, strikes, direct action and civil disobedience up and down the country," said Sam Fairbairn of organisers the People's Assembly.

"We will not rest until austerity is history, our services are back in public hands and the needs of the majority are put first."

Cameron to push ahead for plans of 'brighter future'

Mr Cameron clinched an unexpected election victory on May 7 that gave his centre-right Conservative Party an outright majority in parliament for the first time in nearly 20 years.

The victory was widely seen as an endorsement of the Conservatives' austerity program and was likely to see a continuation of cuts to public spending as they seek to curb a budget deficit of nearly £90 billion ($184 billion).

The Conservatives had already implemented swingeing cutbacks in public services and welfare spending during the previous coalition administration with the centrist Liberal Democrats.

Organisers of the protests were seeking to highlight the impact of previous cutbacks on public services, the state-run National Health Service (NHS), welfare and education.

They also warned over the effects of new austerity measures that Mr Osborne was expected to unveil in a new budget on July 8.

The coalition's austerity policies included around £20 billion of cuts to welfare, which would be reduced by another £12 billion over the next five years.

As the march took place, Mr Cameron vowed "not to waste a second in delivering our manifesto commitments" on his Facebook page.

"We will keep working through our plan to create more security and opportunity in our country - and, with your help, we can secure a brighter future for everyone in Britain," he wrote.
