Too late was the cry

80% of the public will only remember the first story, regardless of whatever truth emerges subsequently.

Why do you think control of the media makes power ?

There are still people - the majority, by the way - who will tell you that Jean Charles de Menezes (RIP :( ) was

-wearing a heavy coat

-vaulted the barriers

-did not respond when challenged by armed police.

despite the court-verified FACTS:

-was wearing no jacket (just a T-shirt)

-passed through barriers normally

-police never issued a warning for him to ignore.

I've always had my doubts about the shouty cunt "interviewed" so quickly on the day. Has he ever been seen since ?
