"Just how cosy is the relationship between the media and the Conservative Party? In this video, I'm going to show you that it's very cosy indeed.Most people, especially those who see themselves as left leaning, get the sense that something is deeply wrong with our media. Since the rise of Brexit and Boris Johnson, feelings of distrust have only gotten worse - with just 28% of people in the UK saying they trust the news. And, quite frankly, that's a huge problem. 

So, the question then becomes, what's causing this problem?

Well, ideally in a healthy democracy, you'd want to have a mainstream ...

LONDON (Bywire News)- It’s safe to say that Boris Johnson has had better weeks.  On Monday it was revealed that the prime minister had made highly offensive comments about preferring to “let the bodies pile high in their thousands” than impose a third lockdown on the UK. Yesterday, Bywire revealed that the Tory donor who had paid for the renovation of Johnson’s Downing Street flat founded a firm who had benefited from public contracts up to the value of £120m. And today, just before PMQs began, the Electoral Commission announced they were launching an official investigation into the source of ...

He asked to be put on the ground."Samuel K: "Okay Candace, so did George Floyd also ask Derek Chauvin to kneel on his neck for nine fucking minutes? I mean what kind of argument is she using here? The white supremacist grifter Candace Owens is unfortunately back in the news again after she made very clear how unhappy she was the former police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd. Now I just want to warn you that the video of her that I'm going to be reacting to is very disturbing and infuriating. S...
"Here’s an important question that most people don't seem to ask: if we as a country can get furious over the greed of football club owners that turn their back on fans to make themselves more money, why can't we use that same anger towards the greed of other companies?Britain has been ripped off by greedy businesses and businessmen for decades - in healthcare, housing and even taxes. But why should it not be acceptable in football, but acceptable in those other areas?Take for example healthcare. During the pandemic the government decided to work with the likes of Serco for a tracing app. They...
LONDON - Johnson has hailed the advent of COVID-19 vaccines and regular testing as the keys to restoring normality by summer, but his government is also supporting research into therapeutics to help in the fight against the pandemic.

"These could provide another vital defence against any future increase in infections and save more lives."

LONDON (Bywire News) - Last week, Piers Morgan spectacularly crashed out of his own TV show after being taken to task by his own weatherman.

Senate majority leader try to persuade his fellow senators to confirm a date for the trial of Trump’s impeachment, in response to his role in inciting a deadly riot on the Capitol which left five dead and many more injured.

LONDON (Bywire News) - British Bafta award winning comedian, Jolyon Rubinstein, provides a fantastically funny, engaging and unique reaction to the 2020 Presidential Debate. Presidential debate? Presidential Debate 2020 Reaction is this: this wasn’t a “debate” and it sure as s**t wasn’t “Presidential”. But that was Trump's intent from the off: destroy the format, claim the victory.  S**t show, horror story, it’s all been said before. More concerning however is the deliberate tactic of disqualifying anyone from knowing anything about “policies” (remember them?) by purposefully railroading the t...

Boris Johnson had claimed it would be a game-changer and is the ‘single most important thing to stop the spread of the disease(COVID-19).’ Ironical...

LONDON (Not The News)- Episode 2 is here - US Civil War 2020 - Could the Presidential Election Change America?   With America ravaged by the Coronavirus pandemic and President Trump actively encouraging right-wing Militias out onto the street & inflaming racial tensions you might think that his opponent Joe Biden would wipe the floor with him.
